Frequently Asked Questions

How many photos do we get?

This completely depends.  In general, there are approximately 100 fully edited digital images from each hour of photography.  This is a general guide, however.  A full wedding day (the Platinum package) produces from 600 to 1000 images.  My philosophy is that I’d rather deliver 5 stunning images from a moment than 20 mediocre ones that are all almost the same.

Are the photos high resolution? Watermarked?

All the images that you receive are high-resolution JPG images.  I also include a second copy in a smaller format that is easier to upload for sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms.  There are no watermarks.

Are you willing to travel?

Absolutely!  I service the Fraser Valley and Vancouver areas as part of a normal wedding package at no additional charge, and there may be small additional charges for travel further than that.  If you are planning a destination wedding, that is absolutely something I’d love to be part of.  You can have a quick look at one from Mexico or from the Azores as examples.  Please contact me so that we can set up a custom package that will work for you.

We’ve never done this before, help!

That’s perfectly fine.  I’ve photographed dozens of weddings over the years and I’ve probably seen just about everything there is to see!  I will sit down with you and go over how the day will go, what my part is, and what I’ll need from you.  Any questions that you have just send them my way.  I can also guide you in terms of timing and planning.   Wed can chat in person or over video chat or the phone and get all your questions answered.

How long does it take to get our photos?

Please allow up to 6 weeks to receive your images, however, the actual time is generally far shorter.

Do you provide elopement packages?

Yes, there is an elopement package for those very small and intimate affairs.  Please contact me for full details!

Do you have an engagement photography package?

Yes, I do.  Engagement photography packages include 2 hours of photography of you and your partner in an easy-going and relaxed setting. This not only lets you become comfortable with me, and get used to what will be happening on the wedding day, but it also lets me get comfortable with you. An engagement package is included as part of the Platinum wedding package.

What about a second photographer?

I offer a second photographer as an optional add-on to any wedding package.  This lets you capture even more of the day, from more angles.  This would let you have photos of both the bride and the groom as they are getting ready, the bride coming down the isle both from the front and from behind, or the bouquet toss from the point of view of the bride, and the lucky folks trying to catch it!

When do we pay?

To book photography for your wedding date, a $500 retainer is required.  This reserves the date for you.  The remainder of the photography fee is due two weeks before the wedding.  It’s your choice if you’d like to split this up into payments or pay in one lump sum.

Do you provide prints and albums?

Yes.  I have the options for large prints on canvas and aluminium, as well as beautiful, locally-made albums in sizes from 6×8″ to 16×20″.  We collaborate on the design and layout and make sure that you have a timeless keepsake of your wedding.  Please contact me for prices!

Do you provide videography services as well?

While I’ve spent the last 15 years honing my skills as a still photographer, I know that videography is not something in my skill-set.  However, I have networked with amazing videoographers that I would love to connect you with if you are looking for a beautiful wedding video package.
