What are your prices?
My pricing varies slightly depending on the date and items in your package. Generally speaking, packages begin at $4995. Contact me to receive full pricing information.
Do you travel?
While most weddings that I photograph are in Louisville and Lexington, I love traveling to other destinations. There is no charge for travel within 100 miles of Louisville (which includes Lexington, Indianapolis and Cincinnati). And I love fun and exotic locations for weddings. Contact me for straight-forward coverage options. Passport is current.
Do you have backup equipment?
Of course! Every tool that I use from camera bodies, to lenses, to lighting equipment is thoroughly backed up. This is your wedding we're talking about here.
What sort of albums do you offer?
I love making books for my clients! For the timeless look, I recommend the matted book, complete with genuine leather cover, professional library binding andarchival mats. Choose the images yourself or let me tell the story through my favorite images. And for something a little more modern, I recommend the gorgeous coffee table book. Set up a meeting to see one for yourself.
Can I have black and white prints as well as color?
I love printing in black and white and put a great deal of energy into unlocking the rich blacks and popping whites of each and every photograph. Proofs are delivered in color but clients can opt for black and white as well as sepia treatments for prints for their walls and albums.
Do you shoot family photographs?
Not at this time. Thanks for asking, though!
How do I secure my wedding date?
Just say the word and I'll get you a contract. A signed contract and $2000 retainer (that goes toward your package) is required to secure a date. My calendar books up very quickly, so contact me at your earliest convenience.
