How long have you been photographing weddings?
I photographed my first wedding in June of 2006 in Houston. I shot for a local studio for four-and-a-half years before branching off to launch my own studio in January of 2011.
Do you shoot by yourself?
While the wife and I enjoy photographing weddings together, these days she pretty much only shoots when we travel for weddings. I keep a highly-selective and well-curated list of other photographers who will shoot with me for Houston area weddings.
I typically photograph sessions (engagement, bridal, family, etc.) alone.
How much does wedding photography cost?
As every wedding – and every couple – is unique, we've tailored our packaging to your needs and, as much as possible, your budget. Let’s get together and talk specifics.
Drop us an email.
Are there additional charges for out-of-town weddings and sessions?
While we don’t charge a specific travel fee, any necessary expenses (airfare, lodging, rental car, etc.) will be the responsibility of the client. But it's important to understand that the peace of mind of having a hometown photographer with you is priceless.
How many photos do you take on a wedding day?
Some might say ‘too many‘, but I say just the right amount. I approach a wedding as a storyteller, so I take all the photos necessary to authentically and accurately tell the story of your wedding day.
How many photos will we receive from our wedding day?
We typically deliver about 100 images per coverage hour.
Are digital files included?
Yes, absolutely, always.
Will all the photos be edited?
They will be delivered to you print-ready, with all necessary adjustments made to exposure, color, contrast and saturation. Images ordered for final print (wall prints, canvases, album images, etc) will be more closely retouched, with attention given to blemishes, fly-away hairs, and distracting background elements.
My mom/cousin/friend/uncle/parole officer wants to take photos at the wedding, too. Will this be a problem?
I fully understand that this person is more important to you than we are, so we’d never prevent them from taking photos at your wedding. But we would also expect that they wouldn’t do anything that would prevent us from doing what you’ve commissioned us to do. If they get in our way, we’ll politely ask them to move.
Do you offer a photo booth?
No, I don't. I want to be 100% present on your wedding day, and not concerned with what's going on "over there". However, I have worked with Texas Photo Co. a number of times and am a big fan of them and their services. Click up http://texasphoto.co for more info.
Do you carry insurance?
I have a liability insurance policy and coverage on all of my equipment.
What cameras/lenses do you use?
I shoot with Nikon cameras, lenses, and flashes. The specific pieces are somewhat fluid, as we’re often adding or removing pieces to our kit.
What do you do in your spare time?
Funny enough, in what little of it I have, I enjoy making photos. Whether nearby home or in distant locations, I love exploring and finding new ways to see the "same ol' things". This usually happens with wife and kids in tow, but sometimes it's more of a solo effort.
I also spend a little bit of time working on StompSoftware stuff.
