HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Photojournalism and Portrait Photography. I’m a strong advocate for candid photos and I dislike cheesy studio poses.
WHO ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS?
I will be by your side for your entire coverage, along with my second shooter, Danny McElmury. You can check out his awesome work at danielmcelmuryphotography.com.
WHAT ARE THE ROLES OF THE SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
The second photographer shoots in a voyeuristic and candid point of view. He or she will be by my side the majority of the day.
DO YOU DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS SEPARATELY?
Of course! We’ll work together to find several fun and creative locations! (limit 2 locations, 4 hours maximum)
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
We’ll fly anywhere around the world for you. We especially love, love, LOVE! warm weather destinations… =). (We require a minimum of 2 nights hotel stay, including travel fees.)
WHERE AM I BASED-OUT-OF?
I reside in Hayward, CA., but I serve the entire Bay Area.
DO YOU DO OTHER TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
My services vary and I’m open to photographing families, baptisms, circus events, pretty much anything! Rates may vary.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Wedding packages start at $3500. Shoot me a quick email and we can discuss details.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Just email me and say “hey, I want to book you!” yes, it’s that easy. I am also willing to work with you on a customized payment schedule, if needed. When you’re ready, we’ll schedule a time and place to meet. Shoot me a quick email at email@example.com with your details and we can plan from there. (*Subject to Availability)
WHAT DOES “FULL DAY COVERAGE” REALLY MEAN?
8 hours of continuous shooting, laughs and high fives…
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU TYPICALLY NEED FOR PORTRAITS AFTER THE CEREMONY?
I typically need a minimum of 30 minutes of portraiture time with the bridal party and 30 – 45 minutes with the Bride and Groom.
WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK?
A first look is where the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. This can be such an intimate moment and it allows us to capture some creative portraits. If you’re not too traditional, it sometimes helps with calming your nerves.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET?
On average, I provide 100-1500 photo proofs for a full 8-hour wedding day. Depending on which package you choose, you will receive from 200 – 500 signature edits saved on a custom usb, accompanied with a complementary print package. Your signature edits are designed to highlight your entire day.
WHAT ARE YOUR ALBUMS LIKE?
I work with a company called RedTree Albums to create your custom flush mount album, with a selection of premium fabric or leather covers and a variety of popular sizes. (6×6 parent album, 8×8, 10×10, 12×12)
DO YOU SHOOT FILM AT ALL?
Yes I do, but only as my side hobby. I’m capable of photographing engagements and weddings on film by request. Film adds a unique dreamy look that digital somehow can’t achieve. It’s old fashion, but its cool fashion…
DO YOU USE SOCIAL MEDIA?
