FAQs

Where are you based out of? Kansas City, MO, USA

Do you travel for jobs? Yes! I have traveled wide across the United States, Canada, and Australia. More locally, from Kansas City, I regularly travel to all surrounding States.

Do you just shoot weddings? Not at all, I am also experienced in shooting all forms of event and portraiture photography. Weddings and engagements, graduation and senior photography, real estate photography, and working with individuals, families and local commercial companies for all sorts of photographic needs and projects.

What editing programs do you use? Lightroom (with incorporation of VSCO preset filters), and Photoshop.

What is the turn-around time for editing my photograph collection? The average turn-around time is 3-5 weeks. At the time of signing, your contract will reflect your more specific guaranteed timeframe for delivery.

 

Do you shoot every wedding?
Primarily yes. If you are the first couple to secure your wedding date on the booking calendar you will always be hiring myself for your wedding day. For those who’s package includes more than one photographer, or for those whose booking was not the first wedding booked on a specific calendar day, one of my trusted team members may also be incorporated to shoot your wedding day. You will always have the opportunity to meet with either myself (and/or your dedicated photographer) before booking your wedding date with us.

Do you tailor-make or customize packages? Every person is different and as such every photography request also varies. Although I do have a complete list of packages for all types of shoots, and many may be exactly what you desire for your photography needs, please let these act also as guideline, as I am happy to personalize a tailor-made package to suit your specific goals.

 

How long have you been shooting for? At age 11, I purchased my first film camera, so all up about 25 years so far. I have been shooting photographs in a professional capacity since 2001.

How are my photographs delivered to me? You will receive all of your final photographs via digital download of high resolution .jpg files. These photographs will all have been professionally retouched and edited. Your contract will indicate your guaranteed minimum quantity of final photographs.

What is required to book my date? To secure availability for your proposed date, I simply require a signed digital contract accompanied by a 20% deposit of the total agreed upon package price. The remainder of the total would then be due on or before the date of your shoot.

Available payment types? 
I receive traditional payment types (check and cash) plus mostly all modern forms (credit card, Square, PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle) etc.
