Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU MEET WITH COUPLES BEFORE BOOKING?
Absolutely. Meetings are a fun, no-pressure way to get the customized info you need without back and forth emails that waste your time. There is no obligation to book at our meetup. I want you to feel like I'm the right photographer for you before booking.
WE'RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF A CAMERA, IS THAT OKAY?
Everyone is awkward at first. As long as you're open to getting to know me and willing to put your trust in me, you'll be fine. Read reviews online. My couples mention how comfortable they felt.
Do you travel? If so, how much are your travel fees?
Absolutely. I do not charge fees for weddings and sessions within 100 miles of San Antonio, TX. For all other locations, meet with me for a custom quote.
Do you offer video as well?
No, I do not. I’m a one-man show and don’t know anything about video.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes. For both my camera gear and liability on location. I can provide proof if your venue requires it.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
Faster than you probably think. 6-12 weeks for weddings. 1-3 weeks for sessions.
Do you edit the photos?
Absolutely. I edit every photo to ensure my signature style is consistent. I keep editing simple with minor color tweaks, contrast, and sharpening. You'll receive a mixture of color and black and white photos.
Do you offer prints?
Absolutely. You can order prints, canvases, greeting cards, and even albums straight through your online gallery from a trusted professional print lab.
Can we print photos ourselves?
Absolutely. You'll receive high-resolution digital files and a print release. You’ll be able to print where ever you’d like.
Do you offer albums?
Absolutely. You can design an album yourself from within your online gallery and order from a trusted professional lab. I also offer completely customized fine art lay flat albums where I'll design it exactly how you want.
Will we receive digital files?
Absolutely. Digital files can be downloaded from your online gallery in full resolution.
Can you hold a date for us?
Unfortunately, I can not until you’ve paid your retainer and signed a contract. Once I’ve got those two things, you’re locked in for the entire day no matter how many hours you’ve hired me for.
What if you’re already booked on our wedding day when we inquire?
I can offer up another free weekend that I have open. If you’ve already locked in your date with a venue, I can recommend other photographers I know and trust.
How soon should we book?
As soon as possible. March - April, and September-December is a busy wedding season for me. So if your wedding lands on one of those months, please inquire ASAP to see if I’m available your date.
