I want to book now whats the next step?
The first step is a phone call or if you are located near Bozeman, Montana let’s meet up! Getting to know each other is very important as I will be with you on one of the biggest days of your life. If we are a good match we can figure out what coverage you would like, I collect a retainer and we sign on the dotted line!
I like your work, can I see an entire wedding?
Yes! I am happy to provide you with a link to an active online wedding gallery. It is too many images to put on a website but I can show you some examples of an entire event.
Do you offer customized wedding day coverage options?
Yes, every wedding is different. We can chat to see what works best for your event. All my services include 2 photographers and a handmade wooden box with prints and your USB of all final images and and online gallery. Hours of coverage, books, albums, prints and more are totally customizable.
Do you travel? If so, how much?
Yes! I LOVE to travel and I am happy to go anywhere in Montana and beyond to photograph your wedding. Travel is free in Montana! Contact me for an estimate to your fabulous destination.
When will my online gallery be ready?
I like to spend time with my photos. I carefully edit, color correct and retouch if necessary all the final images. Your online gallery should be ready with in 4-6 weeks after the event. This is often sooner but it does depend on the time of year and how busy the season is.
What kind of albums do you offer?
My wedding albums are hand bound in premium leather and heirloom quality. Seriously, they are beautiful! With many awesome cover choices in both color and texture, and 8×10 or 11×14 sizes. Here is a link to some examples: Premium Wedding Albums
What equipment do you use, do you have back ups?
I have a big camera bag, it weighs a ton. I have several professional Canon DSLR cameras, a variety of quality canon lenses, lots of flashes, accessories and such to photograph any lighting situation or location. I have backups just in case they are needed.
What is your payment policy?
I require a retainer fee to reserve your date, some signatures and then I am all yours! The retainer is $1500 and here is why: I take your wedding seriously and have to turn down any other couples after we book your date. The final payment payment is due 1 month before your wedding event.
When should we do the engagement session?
Your engagement session can be anytime of year you would like. Just be sure to book the date in advance as some seasons are busier than others. Also, consider the turn around time if you want photos for your invites or a custom designed guest book. I have even done the engagement session the day before the wedding as many of my couples have destination weddings in Montana.
What should I wear to the engagement session?
People often bring several changes of outfits or jackets etc to change up their look. Make sure you are comfortable especially for the season. Please bring along anything you like; favorite hats, your pets, and anything that is part of who you are as a couple. Here are some fun examples: Engagement Photography
Do you work with assistants?
I include the second photographer in all my services. My assistants can change from year to year but I always work with professionals who have the same standards and shooting style as my own.
What is your favorite drink?
Such an important question! I enjoy unique cocktails like the GFC at Plonk (Bozeman,MT) or a Grey Goose soda with lime. Chatting over a good drink is simple pleasure in life that I enjoy. Wanna join me?
