Frequently asked questions

1.  Where are you located?
I am based out of Atlanta, but welcome travel to pretty much anywhere.  I have photographed weddings on the east coast, west coast, and outside of the country.  I offer a convenient flat rate for travel to make things as easy as possible for my destination couples.

2.  When should I secure my date?
For weddings, Saturdays in spring and fall tend to book 6-12 months in advance.  For a portrait session or event with a flexible date, less notice is needed.  If you’re interested, let me know sooner rather than later and we’ll get the ball rolling.

3. What does your fee include?
My fee for wedding coverage always includes a collection of high resolution fully edited digital images which can be delivered electronically or in the mail on a USB drive.  A signed print release granting personal print rights is also included.  In addition to wedding coverage, I also build custom packages for each couple I work with that often include luxury wedding albums, parents books, engagement sessions, and more.

4.  What kind of albums do you offer?
I sell only the finest handmade, custom designed, leather flushmount wedding albums.  I also have a slimmer book style album as well that makes a great parents book.  I have samples of both I show couples during consultations.

5.  Who do you work with?
 I always have an assistant with me at weddings.  This assistant helps me with the “busy work” and allows me to stay focused on what I need to be doing – which is taking pictures.  I also offer packages which include a second or third professional photographer in addition to the assistant.

6.  What sort of experience do you have?
In the past 10 years I’ve photographed over 300 weddings.  I have experience with traditional American, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, and Muslim weddings.  Before that I was trained extensively in photojournalism while working at the Georgia Tech newspaper.

7.  Do you photograph anything besides weddings?
In addition to weddings, I also offer engagement, bridal, portrait, and family sessions. Send me an email and I’d love to talk to you about what you have planned.

8.  What happens if something goes wrong?
All of the important pieces of my camera setup have at least one backup – including cameras, lenses, and flashes.  I am also fully licensed, insured.  In my entire career I have never missed an event or session, but I have numerous reliable backup photographers should something ever happen and there was a problem with me showing up in time.

9.  Can you provide me with references?
Yes, I would be happy to provide with you with recent references.  I feel like the more you know about me and how I work, the happier and more comfortable you’re going to be.

10.  I really like what I see, what do I do now?
Contact me and let’s talk.  I’d love to learn more about you and what you have planned for your wedding.  I’m available to talk through email, telephone, or to meet in person most any time.

 

Is that it?
Absolutely not.  For couples who are interested, we go over a lot more details at meetings.  If you have something specific you would like to ask in the meantime, feel free to contact me
