I often get asked many of the same questions so this FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section might cover most of what you were wondering. If not, please do not hesitate to use the contact form to ask me anything you might be in need of!

What is your style of photography?

I could probably go on and on about this but to keep it simple – my goal as a lifestyle photographer is to capture your moment in its purest form. The idea is that at the end of the day, you’ll be able to look back at your images and see a story unfurl in a pure and natural way – I want you to look like yourself but also have the photos reflect these amazing moments. I recognize that being in front of the camera can be awkward for some people but my goal is always to help you relax, look your best and to have a good time.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Currently, I am a Canon shooter. Both of my cameras are digital although you may see me with a film camera from time to time. Both my cameras and lenses are of high quality and I always have backups. The equipment is very important and you should have faith that I will use every available tool to get you the best images possible.

Do you travel?

Happily! For sessions that are more than 30 miles from zip code 22201, the studio will assess a travel fee.

What about a destination wedding?

First of all, congratulations! Second, I’m there! For your destination wedding the rates are simply the negotiated cost of your event plus travel and accommodations.

How many images will I get?/When will I get to see them?

Most sessions, with the exception of weddings are returned within 14-21 days, sometimes(!) sooner. Because weddings often require a bit more work on my end due to the large number of images, return of those images are within the 6-8 week range.

All sessions are different so the number of images you will receive varies from client to client.

Weddings will typically see somewhere in the neighborhood of 4-600 images although this greatly varies depending on the length of your wedding. Long story short? I’ve got you covered!

How will I get my images?

Images will be given to you in a digital gallery. If you’d like to have them on a usb or CD/DVD – I’m more than happy to do that for you as well at a nominal cost.

Do you have an actual studio

I’m actually an on location photographer who strives to shoot in natural light as much as I absolutely can. I am however, more than happy to come to your home provided that the light enables me to work to get you the best images possible.

How do I pay for my session?

I currently accept checks, money orders, cash, credit cards (3% fee) and paypal. For weddings, a 50% deposit is required when you sign and return your contract. Until that has been received, the studio reserves the right to accept other work.
