FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                           

How much do you charge? 

Please check out the tab labeled "Investment" for my current wedding packages.

 

Are you insured?

Yes, I am insured through the PPA (Professional Photographer's Association). 

 

What if your camera breaks during the wedding?

Don't worry, I have a backup camera. Two camera bodies are always better than one! 

 

If my wedding site is out of your area, do you charge a travel fee and what does that cover?

Depends on the city - if a wedding is more than 2 hours’ driving distance away, I do charge for gas compensation. If a wedding is more than 5 hours away driving, I will require the client to cover flight, accommodation expenses, and fees associated with transporting lots and lots camera gear. 

 

What about travel fees for family portrait sessions?

As these are much shorter sessions than weddings, I do require a small gas compensation for cities outside the Louisville area. Contact me for more details!

 

Will you be posting about our wedding on your social media sites (blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter)?

To keep my business growing, I reserve the right to post your wedding pictures (with my watermark on them) on my DeviantArt page, my personal website, my 500px page, my blog, and my commercial Facebook page.

 

What is the ordering process for photos and albums?

I provide all edited photos burned to multiple DVD discs, and let you choose how you want to order prints. You will also have the option of ordering prints or designing your own photo book through my website. For a fee, I can design the photo album for you after discussing what kind of "look" you and your spouse prefer.

 

Will you give me the negatives and/or the digital images, and is there a fee for that? 

Nope! My policy is to reserve the right to keep the original files for my own safekeeping. 

 

When will I receive a written contract?

You will receive a written contract as soon as you’ve decided you want me as your official wedding photographer. After I meet with you, work out logistical details such as the official dates I am needed, number of hours worked per day, and payment, I will provide a contract that can be signed via Docracy if not in person. 

 

How much of a deposit do you require and when is it due? Do you offer a payment plan?

After you’ve decided that you want me as your photographer, I require a 50% deposit. This ensures that you’ve officially booked me for your wedding and I am guaranteed to show up excluding accidents or emergencies. I do not currently offer a payment plan.
