Q: How do we book our wedding?
A: If you're local to the San Diego area, let's grab coffee. It would be easiest to sit down and discuss package options, pricing, add-ons, etc. in person. We'll figure out what exactly you're looking for, and once it's all figured out, we can go ahead and get you booked. If you're not local to the area, we can schedule a video chat!
Q: How many months in advance should we book our wedding?
A: The sooner the better, preferably no later than 6 months prior, but I can be flexible during certain times of year.
Q: Do you require a down payment?
A: Yes. I require a 25% non-refundable down payment to be paid upfront on the day the shoot is booked. I can accept cash, check, Venmo, or PayPal. I will inform you when the photos from the weddings are all edited and ready for delivery, and at that point, I will require the remaining 75% to be paid through Venmo or PayPal.
Q: How long will it take for our photos to be edited?
A: It depends on the package chosen, as well as the time of year. On average, I would say 1-2 months after the wedding.
Q: Are proofs provided?
A: Due to the heavy amount of editing a wedding requires, I do not provide proofs prior to editing. I do, however, provide "sneak peeks". In other words, I edit some of the best photos from the wedding and get them to you early so you can conveniently post them to social media soon after the wedding, rather than having to wait until all the photos have been edited. You will be able to see the photos before paying the remaining 75%.
Q: Do you use second shooters?
A: It depends on how large the wedding is. If there's a lot going on, I may need assistance and that's where my second shooter comes in. I do pay my assistants, so those packages are more expensive.
Q: Do you offer additional services such as video and photo booths?
A: Some additional services are included in certain packages, but they can be added onto any package. This can all be discussed at the time of booking your shoot.
