Additional hour outside of package is $400.
Travel fees outside of Rocky Mountain House will apply for both me and my second shooter if hired.
A 30% retainer fee & signed contract is required when booking your wedding date. The remaining balance is due one month prior to your wedding.
I do offer payment plans and accept e-transfers, cheques & cash.
1) HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
My personal style of photography can be described in two different ways. I would say my "shooting style" is as a mix of both documentary and candid. I find that especially towards Weddings I strive to capture moments that are realistic, candid and that happen naturally while also adding my own artistic touch to it. I am always watching and thinking what I can create out of ordinary moments. As for my "editing style", I am a warm light photographer with a touch of contrast and colour!
2) DO YOU HAVE ANY FORMAL TRAINING?
Yes I do! I attended Red Deer College in order to achieve my full Photography Certificate!
3) DO YOU BRING A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER WITH YOU?
I do offer my Ultimate package which includes one full day second shooter! I HIGHLY recommend it! Depending on your wedding timeline and the location of events throughout the day, it can be difficult to capture absolutely everything with just one photographer. Hiring a second shooter ensures that EVERYTHING is covered from start to finish.
4) WHEN I GET THE DIGITAL FILES, DOES THAT MEAN I OWN THE COPYRIGHTS?
No it does not. I maintain the copyright to all of my images, ensuring that I can use my work for publication, commercial or promotional use. However I do give my full permission for certain uses such as printing and online sharing, as long as it is solely for personal use.
5) WHAT CAN'T I DO WITH THE DIGITAL FILES?
You cannot make significant changes to the images I give you. Cropping and resizing are okay, but please leave the image editing to me. You also cannot sell the digital files or prints of the images.
6) DO WE GET ALL OF THE IMAGES THAT YOU TAKE?
No, I sort through and choose the photo's that I believe are best for you. The number of photo's I give you also depends on the package you choose. I also do not give my RAW files.
7) DO YOU HELP US PLAN OUR WEDDING TIMELINE?
Absolutely! This will help make sure that your wedding day runs smoothly and that there is enough time for all the shots we need! I highly recommend discussing your timeline questions with me before the wedding.
8) DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Of course I do! Just send me a message with your details and I will send you a quote! Prices will increase with travel fees and overnight accommodations as required.
9) WHAT IF WE CANCEL OR CHANGE OUR WEDDING DATE?
If your wedding date is canceled or changed your retainer fee is non-refundable. Once your deposit is received I turn down any other shoots on this date to hold it exclusively for you! If you would like to book another wedding date you will need to provide another retainer fee in order to secure it.
10) DO YOU REQUIRE A SHOTS LIST FOR OUR WEDDING?
We will go through a shot list for family formals, but other than that I do not need a list of things to photograph. My job is to photograph every detail I see at your wedding.
11) HOW LONG UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTO GALLERY?
For an Engagement session I quote 3 weeks before you receive your edited images. For a wedding, as stated in my contract, it will typically take me 10 weeks for full editing completion. I will of course post a sneak peak before then so you will have a chance to get excited for the full package.
12) WHAT IF WE ARE SUPER AWKWARD IN PHOTOS?
When it comes to posing for a photo session, most people will say this about themselves! However, I promise that once we get started you’ll feel perfectly comfortable laughing and having fun, and I will have the photo's to prove that you both look great and not awkward!
13) IF WE DON'T WANT AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION DOES IT TAKE MONEY OFF OF THE OVERALL PACKAGE PRICE?
No it does not. The engagement session that I offer is COMPLIMENTARY and is provided so that we can get to know each other and work together before your BIG DAY!
14) CAN WE SAVE OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION FOR A SESSION AFTER OUR WEDDING DAY?
No, it is a complimentary engagement session that we book prior to your big day.
15) IF WE HAVE TO CANCEL OUR WEDDING CAN WE USE THE RETAINER FEE TOWARDS ANOTHER SESSION WITH YOU?
No you cannot. Once your retainer fee is received I turn down any other shoots on this date to hold it exclusively for you! The retainer fee is strictly for securing & retaining your specific date.
