What is your approach to photography?
I think we all need to relax a little more and laugh a whole lot more. I also know that every person that I meet is unique and I think that every shoot that I take part in should be unique as well. Think of me as an unseen witness to the moments that make you exactly who you are. I like to be the quiet observer that can get your genuine self down to photograph.
How long will it take to get my photos and how do I get them?
Depending on the event or shoot, I try to have all photos edited and digitally ready for review in about two weeks. You'll have fully edited, full color photos and black & white options as well. Right now, I use Pixieset to deliver the digital downloads to you. Once I email it, you'll have a private gallery of your photos with a password and digital download code. With that email, you'll also receive a photo release from me so you can use your photos however you would like.
What type of camera do you use?
I shoot with a Nikon D3100 and a few different lenses. I have studio lighting if necessary and multiple flash options. What I use for your shoot will depend on what you want out of your shoot and what type of shoot it is.
Can you add names and dates to my photos?
Absolutely. This happens a lot with senior photos and I can add your name, graduation year etc. Though, it's not isolated to senior photos. I can add most of those things for you at an additional cost.
How do you edit and what do you edit with?
I edit with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom Classic and Adobe Lightroom. I love to make you feel beautiful with my photography. With touch ups, I can edit out acne, wrinkles, under eye bags and fly away hairs etc. I like to correct color, exposure, tones, clarity etc. I edit every clear photo I get from your session. Some photographers will only edit a few photos, possibly leaving the rest of your photos with common photography flaws, too dark or with odd tones. I want every photo you get to have a common shoot theme and a similar feel.
How many images do you typically deliver?
Again, every shoot is unique. I *typically* try to deliver about 20-40 images per hour for a portrait shoot, but that's all dependent on the type of shoot it is. For events like weddings, I can normally deliver more images than that. That's something we can talk about more when we have our consultation.
