What is your photographic style?
My photographic style is documentary in nature. I love to capture the mood of your event and the personalities of all your guests. Every wedding is different and I will capture what your day was made of. The genuine laughs, the quirky smiles, the goofy faces.. I don't delete those. They are what makes every wedding and portrait unique. The photos from your day and your portraits will be made of candids and posed photos as well.
Where do you live?
I grew up in La Verne, Ca. and now live in Rialto, Ca.
Which areas do you cover?
I photograph weddings and take portraits throughout Southern California. Orange County, Los Angeles County, San Diego, and the Inland Empire are all included and covered under my scope of Southern California with no travel fees.
Will you travel?
My passport is ready if needed! I am available for destination weddings outside of Southern California. Travel expenses will be added to the cost of the wedding package for travel and accommodations. Please contact me with your wedding details and we will go from there. I arrange my own travel and hotel dependent on wedding hotel being used.
How many pictures will we get?
I deliver between 75-85 for each shooting hour. If we're traveling between venues, that does not count as a shooting hour. As a gift I also make black and white images of all the reception photos. I love the classic look of a black and white photo.
Do you have insurance?
YES! and if your venue needs a COI, I can provide that.
Can you hold a date for me?
Unfortunately, I cannot hold a date for you without a retainer and signed agreement. Clients are accommodated on a first come, first served basis.
What is your payment schedule?
A twenty-five percent retainer is due at booking. The remaining balance is due up to 14 days prior to your wedding date. I send a "live" invoice that updates when payments are made. You can always reference back to this invoice to see and pay a portion of your balance at any time.
If I have to cancel my wedding , can I have my retainer back?
No.. the retainer is non-refundable as it was paid to retain/hold a date for you, which is exactly what happens. Any inquiries/requests for your date are turned down from that day forward.
Do you offer discounts for non-weekend weddings?
I do offer a discount on weddings booked Monday thru Thursday. Please contact me for details.
Do we need to feed you at the reception?
I do have it in the wedding agreement that myself and my team be fed for events 5 hours or longer. We do request you ask your venue for the vendor plates to be given out at the same time as the bride and groom so we eat at the same time to not miss any moments.
