Wedding Coverage

?—Do you work with an assistant
!—Yes, and she’s great. In addition to being a second photographer throughout the day and managing equipment, she knows the seven secret arts of bustling the dress and pinning boutonnieres.

?–What kind of equipment do you use
!—Cannon. With a full complement of lenses and backups for the backups.

?—Do I get the digital files
!—Yes, all the full resolution cropped and color adjusted files in all their glory. Most couples are receiving between 500-700 finished images with a 10 hour package.

?—When do we get the images
!—Most couples’ websites with images and slideshow go live 3-4 weeks after the wedding. It’s that fast. Image discs are delivered with the album or sooner.

?—OK, we want you
!—Wonderful. We’ll need to find the best package for you and then one half of your package fee will secure your date with a retainer.

?—Great. When do we meet
!– I prefer to meet with clients in person. If we decide to work together on your wedding, we’ll most likely meet once before the wedding for your engagement session and also about a month before your wedding date to polish up your itinerary. For clients at a distance, phone and skype work great.

?—Do you travel?
!—I love to travel. I’ve covered weddings in Mexico, Canada, California and Texas. Since Seattle/Bellingham is my home turf, I’ve also photographed many Northwest destination weddings throughout the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands. The fee for travel is ‘at cost’ for transportation by plane/train/ferry/skiff/elephant as well as lodging. Email for a quote.

?—Do you do ‘Day After’ shoots
!—For destination events, couples prefer them and I love shooting them.

?—Do you want a shot list
!—For family members, yes. I don’t want to forget anyone. Beyond that, regimented picture lists lead to regimented pictures. Trust the process.
