Email me about your wedding plans and I’ll send you my guidebook!
What’s your booking process?
Wedding dates are booked with the first couple to sign a contract and pay a deposit. Contracts are signed electronically, because we live in the Future, and payments can be made either by check or Paypal.
Do you have a travel fee?
For weddings outside of Portland, OR I charge for travel and accommodation, but not travel time. My fee covers 2 nights stay, gas and car rental or RT airfare.
How soon will we see our photos?
Wedding slideshows go live within 1-2 weeks. Finished galleries are delivered within 4-6 weeks.
How many photos will we get?
Typically a full wedding yields 400-600 photos.
How is the final collection delivered?
In an online, password-protected gallery.
Will the final collection be fully edited?
Yes, every photo is edited to the extent you see on the site.
Do we have to order prints through you?
You can order prints through your online gallery if you’d like, but every wedding package comes with a printing release so you’re welcome to print your images whenever, wherever you’d like.
Do you shoot elopements and engagements?
Absolutely. I love the laid-back, intimate feel of elopements!
For engagement sessions I find that most people approach them with a nervous fear — the name itself sounds so sterile! Instead, I offer Day in the Life sessions where we spend a day together doing something as ordinary as going on a hike, a picnic or spending a day in the city. Nothing forced, overly posed or not-you about it.
Will you shoot a gay wedding?
I do not discriminate in any shape, way or form with my couples and am completely open to any celebration of love.
What about wedding party + family photos?
I shoot as many (or as few) formal photos as each couple desires, and believe the documentation of family trees are one of the single most important photos you can take away from your wedding day. I do my best to make the process go by swiftly and painlessly.
Do your packages come with albums?
Luxury albums, coffee table and keepsake books are all available. I don’t think there’s a better way to remember your wedding.
Are your prices flexible?
Out of fairness to all my couples who pay full price, I do not offer discounts. However, I am flexible with creating a custom package that fits your needs and budget. Email me about your plans and we’ll make it work!
What happens if you become ill?
Unless I fall off a cliff, I will be there. In the rare event that something beyond my powers prevents me from attending your wedding, I will do everything that is in my power to find you a suitable replacement.
Do you shoot weddings full-time?
Yes and no. While this is the only job I have, I realize that wedding photography is hard work and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Bookings are limited each year in order for each couple to receive my full time and attention — on average I shoot 10-15 weddings a year.
