Are you available?
You can see my calendar for available dates.
What kind of wedding coverage do you offer?
I photograph weddings of all sorts, and offer portrait sessions for engagements and anniversaries. I offer coverage for as little as two hours, up to as much as twelve hours. I travel basically everywhere except Canada, because they have SUPER strict laws and won’t let me shoot there (not like, me specifically, just non-Canadians in general.)
Can I get your full pricing information?
Yep. I no longer offer collections or packages, because all of my couples ended up wanting to do something custom. So I’ve made that way easier to do! Just scroll through the pricing page, and build exactly the collection you want. No minimum investment, or surprise separate charges.
What if I’m having a weird wedding?
Good! I embrace weird, and if you’re going for the coveted “strangest photography request” slot, you’ve got a pretty high bar to aim for. Weirdos, geeks, and punk kids are my people.
Okay so when you say elopement…
The wedding industry’s been playing fast and loose with this term. Small, intimate, elopement, microwedding, anything with around 60 guests or less tends to fall into this category. I don’t have separate pricing for these, but I do offer coverage for as little as two hours.
What’s an adventure wedding?
It’s really just what it sounds like. If you love the outdoors, and love adventure, there are tons of ways to incorporate that into your wedding. Some folks want to get married on a mountaintop, in a riverbed, or deep in the woods, and I’m happy to be right there with them to document everything. If you want an adventure wedding photographer, I’m super comfortable hiking off into the wilderness with you.
What if I’m totally not photogenic?
Take a look through my blog. Now consider that nine out of ten of those people told me that they aren’t photogenic, are nervous in front of a camera, and take terrible photos. None of these folks are models, they’re just regular people getting married. It’s my job to make you look great, and it’s my job to make you feel comfortable while we’re shooting, and you look fabulous.
Do you travel?
I love traveling, and I’m happy to shoot your wedding, wherever it may be. Pricing can vary, and I’m happy to get you a quote on that. If you’re in my usual coverage area (which is anywhere between Pittsburgh and Morgantown, or the eastern side of Ohio) you won’t have to worry about it.
Do you do LGBT weddings?
I sure do. My goal is to make everyone I work with feel comfortable and respected.
Where do we start?
The first contact that I have with people is usually through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), although you’re welcome to call or text (724.880.0519). Then if you think we’re a good fit, we can meet up to talk about what you want out of your photographer, and go over your plans for the day. I genuinely love hearing about people’s wedding plans, so yes, I totally do want to hear about your idea for a pie bar. We can do this in person, or via phone/email/Skype. If you’d like to see if your date is available, you can see my calendar. If I’m not available for your date, and you’d like a recommendation for another photographer, feel free to email me at email@example.com. I have a lot of really talented friends.
When will I get to see my photos?
Your photos will be processed four to six weeks after the wedding. I upload the finished images to a digital gallery so that you can view them right away, and you can also download your files through them. Select photos are also added to the blog and the Facebook page. If you’re on Facebook, feel free to tag yourselves and your friends. If you’re more of an instagram person, I add a few photos to my instagram feed as well. If you’ve ordered an album, you’ll have proofs two to three weeks after your photos are finished. You can make changes to the album if you’d like (swapping/adding/deleting photos), and choose an album cover. The album is usually in your hands two or three weeks after the order is made.
What’s a digital gallery?
I upload all of the finished images, and you’ll receive an email when your photos are available. You’ll be able to view and download all of your photos online, and can send the link to friends and family to view as well, and you are also able to order prints and other products through that service.
