Here are some answers to questions I receive on a regular basis.
Where are you located & Where do you travel to?
I am located in Ballston Spa, New York. I regularly photograph people and weddings throughout New York and New England. I love to travel and I am available for destination shoots.
What is your style of photography?
I photograph events with a documentary, organic approach. I allow your day to unfold naturally, capturing your guests being and enjoying themselves, laughing, drinking, dining & dancing.
Elegant formal portraits of the bride and groom are casually posed and loosely directed for guidance, but never forced. Above all, I believe in capturing my clients as they are...just a little more spiffy!
Can you hold my date?
I accept bookings on a first come, first serve basis. Dates are reserved when your contract and deposit are received.
What is your background in photography?
My love affair with photography began long before the digital craze. My father's Minolta was slung around his neck for every vacation, birthday, and holiday celebration. And when dad wasn't looking it was in my little curious hands.
Photography became a passion for me- a way to explore life and preserve special moments as they unfolded around me. I have spent countless wonderful hours in community darkrooms, and later honing my skills at Rockport College and the The Maine Photographic Workshops as well as The New York Institute of Photography.
What is your deposit requirement?
In order to reserve your date, a deposit of $900 is due with your signed contract. *This deposit is non-refundable as it guarantees your date exclusively and I turn down all other commissions for that date. The remaining balance is due one month prior to your wedding.
*Payment plans and Wedding Registries are available*
If I want more photography than I originally contracted, will you stay longer?
I only photograph one event per day, so I am available for overtime. Don't worry, I will not disappear at the expiration of your contracted time! I will consult with you prior to departing and with your permission and approval continue to document your day as you wish. The balnce for additional photography is due 14 days after your event.
How long will it take to receive my photographs? I'm dying to see them!
All images are delivered within 6-9 weeks of your event, sometimes sooner. Albums and books may take a little longer as they require consultation and design before heading to press.
Wedding galleries will typically be available for viewing prior to your archives and printed items.
Unedited raw-files are not available for viewing or purchase. Only your best images are selected for editing and final delivery. Everything else is discarded.
