“We had a lot of great vendors at our wedding but you were absolutely our best pick out of all of them.” – Nick & Cara
How much does it cost to have you capture our wedding and what are the options?
Packages start at $4,495 for the basics but I have lots of great options to make sure you get everything you need. See everything laid out with no confusion right here.
Do you shoot smaller weddings or elopements?
I love shooting smaller weddings and elopements! I do have a 7 hour minimum for Saturdays (that’s my smallest package), but we can use the extra time to capture portraits of the two of you in an epic location! I am happy to work with you on shorter events Monday through Friday and also regularly photograph sweet ceremonies at City Hall. Let’s chat!
How do we book you?
I chat with each couple I work with on the phone, via Skype, or in person in Berkeley. I share a little bit more about my approach to photographing your wedding, you share a little bit more about your wedding day, and we all see how perfectly we’ll work together and how I’ll put you at ease on your wedding day. ;)
From there, I’ll send you a contract. I require a 50% deposit and signed contract to book and then at that point, we’re official!
How long have you been photographing weddings?
I have been working as a professional photographer and in the wedding industry since 2008. I started shooting weddings as the lead photographer in 2009. Since then I’ve been the lead photographer on almost 75 weddings, with another 150 or so under my belt as a second photographer and assistant. I’ve been to a lot of weddings and I love every one!
Do you deliver high resolution files?
Always! Every single photography package that I offer includes the fully edited, high resolution images from your wedding, delivered via USB drive. You can print them, share them, etc. I also offer an online gallery service and the option to order professional prints, framed and matted prints, and art quality canvases from me.
Do you allow us to share our images on social media?
I would love that! You can share your images anywhere online that you would like. I do request a simple line of credit with my name or website (or a tag, if it’s on Twitter or Instagram). You are also welcome to share the blog post I do of your wedding or your full online image gallery with whomever you like.
Do you have any feedback from past clients that you can share with us?
We love the work on your website. Can we see more of it?
You can also browse entire wedding galleries right here. This is where your online gallery will be displayed as well. (I also deliver a USB drive of high resolution files, but this is a great way to share images with guests and order professional prints.)
We notice that you love black and white photos. Tell us more.
Yes! I really love black and white photos; I think they let the emotion of a moment really shine through. That being said, I love color, too! For every black and white image that I deliver, I also deliver the color image of the same file. This leads to some duplicate images in your gallery, but I like that this way you get to choose which images you want in color and which images you want in black and white. (To clarify: I don’t deliver every image in b+w, just the ones I am moved to deliver in b+w, but I do deliver every image in color.)
Do you offer albums?
Yes! I offer a gorgeous, lay flat album that is professionally printed and has a beautiful, wrap around image on the cover. I design all of the albums I order myself and each client who orders one gets the final say on images and layout. See images of the albums I offer and check out the pricing on them right here.
