FAQ

I wanted to give a little FAQ and things to know for reference. Contact me if you want something added.

  • What can I expect of you without any specific instructions given?
    • It will depend on the type of event.
    • Family Photos – I tend to let the families pose how they like, and then snap away. I’ll correct posing if needed. Most family sessions are 30 minutes or less unless the families are large or want to be more creative than the usual.
    • Small/Family Event Photos – For small events, I’ll usually wander around and get photos of whoever is interested. Free for all with smaller events. I want to make sure to capture the loving atmosphere.
    • Large/Nightlife Style Events – I will usually circle around getting pretty people, and couples. The goal would be to make your event look as good as possible.
    • Corporate Events – With corporate events, It’s a mix of the above. I’ll usually wander around and snap whoever wants photos.
    • Modeling Photos – I’m a passive shooter in this case. I tend to let you naturally do whatever you like. I may correct posing, but it’s not common I will direct. My shooting style is goofy and fun.
  • How can I make sure I get the photos I want?
    • Emailing me a bulleted shot list is one sure fire way to make sure no photos are missed. The other way would be to make sure to tell me as we go what photos you want me to get.
  • How many photos can I expect?
    • I go for a quality over quantity aspect. Which means I do my best to get as many as I can without duplicates, or too many of the same people. For smaller events, 20-50 photos is commonly expected, larger events, 75-100 photos.
    • For family photos this will vary.
  • Why was my photo deleted? Why do you delete so many?
    • As mentioned above, I aim for quality over quantity. I delete photos for a number of reasons. Such as: Focus may not have been fully there, Someone may have blinked, Someone made a weird face, or I just didn’t like the composition of the photo. Number of reasons. I want to make sure everyone looks their best, and not everyone is photogenic.
  • Do you take photos with people’s cell phones?
    • No, I do not. I will not take photos with people’s phones as I consider that tacky.
  • How do you send photos? How do you I get them?
    • I send photos with a service called WeTransfer. It sends files in a zip folder for you to download all at once and notifies me of when they’re downloaded.
  • Do you offer an option to get photos on CD?
    • No, given that CDs are now considered an old technology, I don’t offer an option to burn CD’s. Though I do offer an option to copy the files onto a thumb drive for $100 extra, though it’s up to you to come get the USB drive.
  • How can I print your photos?
    • You can upload to one of many websites to get them printed or take a thumb drive with photos to Costco, Walgreens, CVS or any place that prints photos.
