"Where are you located?"
I am located in New York City. I am available to shoot in the Tri-State area and worldwide. Travel fees may apply.
"Do you travel?"
Absolutely! I love traveling and need a few more stamps in my passport. If you’re having a destination wedding, family event, or corporate event let me know and we will chat!
"What is your photographic philosophy?"
I believe in honest photography. I want to tell your story authentically and beautifully. Why work from a canned shot list when you can have photos that tell a tale that is yours and yours alone? Overly posed photos are not my favorite and I love photographing people in places that are meaningful to them. So let’s have an adventure together and make some magical moments of you!
"What are your packages and pricing?"
Headshots and Families (under 10 people)
Headshots and family photos can be done in the studio, or at a specific location. (Travel fees may apply)
The session fee for headshots and family photos begins at $350.00. Prints, high resolution files, and Holiday Cards are an additional fee(s).
I offer various packages and options to suit your needs. A complete price list for family and headshot options are available upon request.
Are you a business in need of product photography? The key to standing out is having compelling images. Pricing depends on the extent of the project. Let's discuss.
Each wedding is different and has different photographic needs, but my set collection start at $2,000. It includes high-resolution copies of your wedding photos for download. Engagement, second shooters, and a variety of prints and canvases are also available. For detailed pricing and information, contact me. Elopement Packages are also available.
“Do you work alone?”
It depends! I have shot weddings alone and am fully comfortable working by myself to capture all the right moments of your day. If you would like to add a second shooter, that option is available. I will reach out to an experienced network of professionals to find the right fit. Having a second shooter can be super helpful, especially when a wedding has a large guest count or takes place over multiple locations. If you have questions about whether you need a second shooter send me a message and we will talk.
“What kind of equipment do you have? Do you shoot with an iphone?”
Professional equipment! I happen to shoot with a Nikon. and have a variety of lenses and backups. Although smart phones have come a long way, I do not shoot weddings or any session with an iphone. I'm not knocking anyone's hustle. Its just not my preferred method.
“Does our package come with files?”
Yes! Every wedding package comes with digital files, which will be delivered to you for download via a digital gallery. I believe you should have your collection of wedding images for posterity. I keep files for one year, but to ensure nothing happens to them, save them to at least 2 physical locations and one online backup. Trust me on this one. I've seen people's backups fail them.
"How long will it take to get our photos?"
Turnaround for photoshoots is 3 weeks – weddings are 6 weeks.
“I totally saw this awesome thing on pinterest! Can you do that?!?!”
Pinterest is a great tool for inspiration, and you can always feel free to send me things that you love. That being said, I don’t believe in recreating shots from pinterest. Those photos are someone else’s story with different conditions and moments I want to tell your unique story. Not someone else’s ideal. Furthermore, another artist or group of artists worked very hard on that and I don’t want to copy their work.
