How far are you willing to travel? Is there a travel charge? I am willing to travel anywhere with travel and lodging expenses paid. I do not charge for travel in the Hampton Roads area or the Outer Banks Region. Anything beyond that would require travel and hotel expenses for the day prior and the night of the Wedding..
How would you describe your photographic style? What does this mean? Photo Journalistic with touches of modern and traditional styles. I like to think of it as a picture story of your important day. I do have the traditional family photos and the bridal party photos, but I like to shoot what is happening rather than try to recreate or stage something. Getting the pure emotion of the day in photographic form is my goal!.
How many pictures do you take? Can I provide a list of posed photos for you to take? With my photo journalistic approach, I take many more than the required photos. I average between 400 to 800 images shot. I tend to get all the photos that you want without you knowing but if you have specific concerns about a certain photo or two, I have no problem accommodating. Because of the fluid nature of Weddings and events in general, it is very difficult to follow a shoot list precisely. .
How many weddings have you photographed? I have photographed 25 weddings in the past 5 years I have been in business, not counting all the weddings and other events before in business..
How quickly will I receive my prints? All Packages will be available 4 to 6 weeks after the wedding day. Your prints will be available as soon as you pick the photos you want online and place an order. After the order is placed allow 2 to 4 weeks for prints..
What makes you different from other local photographers? Why should someone hire you? I believe that you have the right to have all your photos and be able to print them whenever you wish. .
