When should we do our engagement session?

 

 

I encourage you to do your engagement session as soon as possible. The latest time frame I suggest is at least 10-12 weeks prior to the wedding date due to the time necessary to post produce each image and complete your product orders.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?

 

 

My calendar fills up quickly so you should plan to book about 18 months in advance. If you are planning on a shorter time-frame, please contact me to check availability.

Do you touch up all the images in our image download?

 

 

Yes I do. Every image I deliver is post produced with my unique signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Some photographers will only post produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography flaws.

What do you mean by “touching up” the photos?

 

“Touching up” is the same as my signature (standard) post-production. See the question below for clarification.

What is the difference between advanced and custom; and why are there additional costs for a custom retouch?

 

 

Advanced post-production includes touch-ups such as removal of blemishes, removal of bags under eyes, removal of fly-away hairs, etc. On the other hand, custom post production is anything that requires extensive, custom work in Photoshop such as removing entire objects from the scene, changing the size and shape of body parts or other objects in the scene, adding objects to a scene and other custom work. I charge hourly for the custom post-production as the time required ranges depending on the complexity of the project. Please contact me for a quote for custom post-production projects.

WE’RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING. DO YOU TRAVEL?

 

Yes! I love destination weddings and have been lucky enough to travel all over the world so I am very comfortable and enjoy visiting new places. Send me more information on your travel plans, and I will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs.
