TYPICALLY, I REQUIRE 50% UPON SIGNING YOUR AGREEMENT.

HOWEVER, I AM USUALLY WILLING TO BE FLEXIBLE IF NEED BE.

CAN I KEEP THE UNEDITED PHOTOS YOU TAKE?

I DO NOT ALLOW MY CLIENTS TO HAVE ACCESS TO ANY OF MY RAW PHOTOS. WHEN YOU HIRE ME AS A PHOTOGRAPHER, YOU ARE NOT ONLY HIRING ME TO TAKE THE PHOTOS, BUT TO EDIT THEM IN MY STYLE AS WELL. I AM ALWAYS OPEN TO CHAT ABOUT SPECIFIC PHOTOS YOU MIGHT HAVE IN MIND THOUGH.

WILL YOU GIVE ME PRINTS?

I ONLY PROVIDE PRINTS FOR CERTAIN PACKAGES.

HOWEVER, THE ONLINE GALLERY THAT YOU WILL BE SENT WILL GIVE YOU THE ABILITY TO ORDER PRINTS, PHOTO ALBUMS, ETC. DIRECTLY THROUGH THE LINK FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE.

DO YOUR PRICES INCLUDE TRAVEL?

UNFORTUNATELY, MY PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF THE SONORA/TUOLUMNE AREA. HOWEVER, COMPARED TO OTHERS, I DO CHARGE VERY MINIMAL TRAVEL FEES.

currently, I am a canon lover!

most of my gear & equipment are canon products & I absolutely love them.

edited photos.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?

SINCE I WAS REALLY YOUNG, I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED TAKING PHOTOS. I STARTED TO GET A BIT MORE CREATIVE WHEN I GOT MY FIRST CANON CAMERA IN 2020. IN 2021 I DID A LOT OF EVENTS, SECOND SHOOTING, & STAGED PHOTOSHOOTS. THEN AT THE START OF 2022 MY BUSINESS STARTED GROWING LIKE CRAZY! I WAS BOOKING EVERYTHING FROM WEDDINGS, TO SENIOR SESSIONS, TO ELOPEMENTS, & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. 

AND FOLLOWING MORE & MORE IN LOVE WITH IT EVERY DAY.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

USUALLY I OFFER A 50% DEPOSIT WITH 50% PAID 2 WEEKS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING. BUT SHOULD YOU NEED A PAYMENT PLAN, I WOULD BE MORE THEN HAPPY TO CREATE SOME CUSTOM PLANS FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM TO ENSURE STRESS ISN'T ADDED TO YOU WHILE PLANNING.

HOW LONG UNTIL I GET MY PHOTOS BACK?

PER THE AGREEMENT THAT I WILL SEND TO YOU, IT STATES THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PHOTOS IN 1-3 MONTHS.

TYPICALLY, I GET A BIT TOO EXCITED AND END UP HAVING THEM DONE CLOSER TO THE 1 MONTH MARK. BUT FOR PEACE OF MIND, I ALWAYS STATE 1-3 MONTHS, JUST INCASE. 

WHAT IF I NEED YOU TO STAY LONGER OR COME EARLIER THAN I ORIGINALLY PAID FOR?

NO STRESS AT ALL.

IF YOU NEED EXTRA COVERAGE ON THE BIG DAY, I WILL ALWAYS DO WHAT I CAN TO ENSURE YOU GET IT. 

MY FEE FOR EXTRA TIME IS $120 PER HOUR & I WILL SEND THAT INVOICE OVER AFTER THE EVENT & PRIOR TO DELIVERING

YOUR PHOTOS.

SOME OF MY PACKAGES DO INCLUDE THE OPTION FOR A SECOND SHOOTER. AFTER WE CHAT ABOUT THE DETAILS & VENUE OF YOUR WEDDING, THAT USUALLY DETERMINES IF ILL NEED TO BRING AN ASSOCIATE OR IF I WILL CAPTURE IT ALL ON MY OWN!
