    FAQ

    Q.
    DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WORK?
    A.
    Anywhere + everywhere! I'll be wherever you + your love are ready to capture every moment in a heartbeat. All travel costs, including mileage, ferry fares, airfare, lodging + rental car are covered by my clients. I work with flat fees + mileage fees to accomodate most travel. However, please inquire for more details + options. I offer a complimentary 100 miles there + back (200 miles round trip) of driving with any of my elopement + wedding packages! However, after the complimentary 100 miles though, I charge $.50 per a mile. Check out my travel schedule on my Home Page to get discounted session with no travel fees!
    Q.
    DO WE GET ALL OF OUR PHOTOS?
    A.
    I don’t want to keep any of your images captive. So yes of course, you get all of them! The only photos I do not deliver is mid-blinking, out of focus or unflattering photos that we know you won’t have any desire to have. My average delivery is 500 - 1,000 photos per a wedding. I shoot about 50 - 100 images per an hour, but it depends on what is going on during each hour. I do not limit how many photos you receive. If it’s a good photo with a good moment, you will receive it!
    Q.
    HOW LONG UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
    A.
    I'll send you high quality sneak peeks no later than 3 days after your wedding, elopement or session! You should expect around 5 - 8 weeks for your wedding or elopement images + 2 - 4 weeks for any other session images to be delivered via a beautiful online gallery.
    Q.
    DO WE OWN THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE OF US?
    A.
    Yes + no. Let me explain ... you have all the rights to share the photos online + with your friends + family + print as many as you'd like for personal use. However, I own the copyright to all the images. My contracts describe this in detail, but that means you can't use the photos to make money at all.
    Q.
    HOW DO YOU KEEP OUR PHOTOS SAFE?
    A.
    I do my very best to back up my work + keep all of your precious memories safe. I shoot to two memory cards at the same time during your session / wedding / elopement to make sure I automatically have backups right away! When I get home from a session I immediately backup all the images to 3 separate quality hard drives.
    Q.
    WHAT'S THE VALUE OF ADDING A SECOND SHOOTER TO OUR WEDDING PACKAGE?
    A.
    Having a second shooter gives you even more images. It also allows me to get a few unique perspectives of your big day! In the end it will leave you with a bonus of 100 - 200 images on average.
    Q.
    DO YOU CHANGE YOUR EDITING OR SHOOTING STYLE FOR EACH CLIENT?
    A.
    Absolutely not. I do not change my shooting style or editing style for any client. The reasoning for this is that I want my clients to hire me because they love my work + art as a whole, not just pieces of it. I stay true to my brand, what you see is what you are 100% going to get. Time of year + lighting situations of course affect final images making them warmer, brighter, darker more colorful, etc. but for the most part my images all have the same look + feel.
    Q.
    DO WE PROVIDE FOOD FOR YOU AT OUR WEDDING?
    A.
    For weddings over 5 hours, I do require that you provide at least one hot meal for me. This is important so that I stay alert, energized + happy! I do not require you to put me on your seating chart, but I do really appreciate it when my clients do!
    Q.
    DO YOU MEET WITH YOUR CLIENTS BEFORE BOOKING?
    A.
    I don't think having a meeting over coffee or drinks + one hour of conversation is authentic before hiring me because it usually feels forced. I want you to feel impressed, reassured + ready to book from the moment you land on my website, see my work and read about who I am online. I dedicate my time to booked clients. However, I am always available to talk on the phone before you book to get to know you + answer any questions you might have! Once you book, we can of course set up a meeting in person or we can just meet at the engagement session!
    Q.
    DO YOU HAVE BUSINESS INSURANCE?
    A.
    Absolutely! I highly recommend that you don't hire a photographer that doesn't have insurance. In fact, a lot of venues won't even let a photographer shoot their if they don't have it.
    Q.
    WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
    A.
    Some of the absolute best in the industry! All of my gear is extremely high quality. 1. 2 Canon 5D Mkiii Camera Bodies 2. Canon 24mm f/1.4 Lens 3. Canon 35mm f/1.4 Lens 4. Canon 50mm f/1.2 Lens 5. Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 Lens That's the basics, but I also have tons of camera batteries (charged + ready to go), 2 off camera flashes, tons of top of the line + fast SD + CF cards.
    Q.
    DO YOU INCLUDE ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN YOUR WEDDING COLLECTIONS?
    A.
    Yes, of course! I include an hour long complimentary engagement shoot in each of my wedding packages. The reasoning behind why I include the complimentary engagement session in my packages is because it gives me a chance to meet you ahead of time + you get to see how I shoot. I have found that this makes the wedding day so much more comfortable + easy!
    Q.
    CAN YOU HELP US WITH CHOOSING WHAT TO WEAR FOR OUR SESSION?
    A.
    I got you. I’ll send you a detailed “What to Wear” guide PDF to your email a few weeks before our session!
    Q.
    DO YOU OFFER VIDEO AS WELL FOR WEDDINGS + ELOPEMENTS?
    A.
    I do not as of now. I do have a few northeast wedding videographers that I love working with! Hitch Cinema justin@hitchcinema.com Natalie Corina Films npolitoski@gmail.com Check them out!
