What your photography style?
My observational approach is most comparable to what many call "wedding photojournalism," but I don't limit myself to the expectations of true journalism because, well, it's not necessary in wedding photography. My main focus here at 43rd Ave. Photography is showing what your wedding day felt like through candid pictures and personality-driven portraits.
We love your candid style but would like to have some portraits of our family and bridal party. Is that something you do?
Yes! I photograph family, bridal party and couple portraits at most weddings. We work together to plan all portraits before the wedding day so we can make sure there's enough time in the overall timeline and the photography coverage time. I would describe my posed photography style as relaxed and candid-ish-- I'm still trying to get natural body language and real smiles, but I'm also giving direction and making conversation to help people feel comfortable in front of the camera.
How many pictures will we receive?
You will receive the best pictures from your day, which ranges from 75 to 100 pictures per hour of coverage. All the pictures you receive will be edited and high-resolution so you can print them to your heart’s delight. Yes, get them off of your computer!
Do you travel?
Heck yes! I live in San Francisco and photograph weddings all over the Bay Area. Travel is included within 100 miles or two hours, after which I may require an overnight stay at a hotel. For weddings outside of the Bay Area, please contact me so we can discuss the necessary travel expenses for your particular situation. Don't be shy, I like to visit new places!
What do you require to book a date?
I require a signed contract and a non-refundable $1500 retainer. I use an online booking software to deliver quotes, contracts and accept retainer payments.
What do I do with my hands?
I got you!
