Q: What is your primary photographic style?
-My photos tend to convey passionate intimacy through a high art prism. That’s why my motto is “Fashion with Passion.”
Q: What is your photography experience?
-My Fine Arts degree from UMBC developed an artistic eye and a comprehension of Art Theory. My apprenticeship with a renowned National Geographic Photographer taught me how to apply all that theory in a fast paced environment. But alas, that was a long time ago and I have been developing my style from that foundation for the past 7 years.
Q: What technology do you use?
-Believe it or not, I actually know film, which is important because it requires a thorough understanding of how to light a composition, an under-appreciated but critical skill. Then I evolved to Digital 7 years ago and although I do miss those hours in the dark room, I love how creative digital allows me to be.
Q: What products do you offer?
-Custom designed and hand crafted Albums, Guest Books, Holiday/Save-The-Date/Thank-You Cards and Magnets, Large Fine Art Prints, Digital Slide Shows, Etc.Of course, you are welcome to see samples of these products online HERE or in person at the studio with some coffee and treats.
Q: How many photos do we get?
-Quality determines quantity and so I provide whatever makes the cut, which is usually between 300 and 700 images, depending on the event. This is where I use my Fine Art background, enhancing each photograph through thoughtful use of effects and retouching.
Q: How long does it take for us to see our wedding photos?
-You can see our favorites within a few days on our Facebook page and on our blog . Your proofs will be ready after 4 weeks.
Q: Do we keep the digital negatives and can we print our images later on?
-Absolutely, every package includes a DVD with high resolution images for your personal use.
Q: OK, we like you! Now what?
-We request a 50% deposit on your total package when signing the contract. The retainer can be paid before or on the day of the wedding. Of course, I am available any time to answer your questions and will even help you relax with a glass of wine… or two.
Q: Do you do destination weddings? Do you travel? What are the travel fees?
-We love to travel and experience any of the events around the wedding. Please inquire about our Destination Wedding package.
Q: Do you have more than one photographer?
-YEP, I have a few. Although I will always be the principal photographer, associates on my team will also cover the event, depending on its size and the package you choose.
