Information and FAQ

WEDDINGS

  • What photography services do you offer? I focus mainly on photographing weddings and also seniors, families, children, business headshots and events. I recently added the Mirror Me Photo Booth for weddings and special events!
  • WE ARE TRYING TO DECIDE ON A PHOTOGRAPHER 

    BUT IT IS SO HARD! HOW DO I CHOOSE? 

    There are so many brides who just aren't into photography that much, or have pawned the wedding planning off to mom. There are even some brides who don't want to take any advice and just want things a certain way. These brides aren't who we usually work with. We love working with couples who are fun, cherish memories, want great photography, and love the fact that they got to celebrate such an important day in their lives with the people they love. 
  • How many photographs will we see from our wedding? You will see between 100-1500 images depending on which coverage you choose. The number of images also depends on the weather and your venue. 
  • WE LIVE OUT OF TOWN BUT WOULD LOVE TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION? I have a studio to meet when you are in town or 

    we are constantly meeting with people over Facetime, Skype, and many times just a simple phone call. Half my weddings are for people that do not live in NEO. 

  • How will we view our images?  I edit weddings generally in 30 days or less, depends on the time of the year. I post social media teasers a few days afterwards. After I am done editing, I will send you a link to your online gallery for sharing and ordering.
  • Do you offer high resolution files? Yes.
  • Do you have a second shooter? Yes. The professional second photographer does everything from photographing to assisting with off camera lighting and more. It is good to see your ceremony from different angles. I have back up equipment as well as my second shooter.
  • What does each package include? Each collection varies, please call or email your request. Call for small more intimate weddings and we can customized a collection for you. 
  • Do you travel to shoot a wedding? Absolutely! I mainly photograph in Ohio, but will travel anywhere for a wedding. Traveling and Weddings are my two favs!
  • CAN I GET SOME HELP DESIGNING MY ITINERARY? This is something I LOVE doing. Mainly because I have seen a million things that work really well and a million things that haven't. I really love it when our couples lean on my expertise and advice. Many times, a couple makes an itinerary and doesn't think about things like travel time, or even the location of photos. There are so many tips and tricks we can offer to a couple to make sure everything is perfect the day of the wedding! We always tell people, the more work you put in before the wedding, the easier the day of the wedding is going to flow. 
  • Can I order more then what comes with the wedding collection? Yes! You'll be able to order through your online gallery.
  • How do we book and what are your payment terms? In order to secure your wedding date, I require a non-refundable deposit of $500, with the balance due one month prior to your wedding date. We accept cash, check, debit and credit cards. Please email or call!
  • How do you consider your style of photography? I use to work at the Tampa Tribune, so I have a newspaper background....I am photojournalistic all the way, with a tad bit of traditional and romantic. 
  • Have your weddings been published? Yes, here are some links.

  • Do you provide other services? Yes. I have created marketing pieces such as the brochure for the Greenway Trails and the fall sports program for Jefferson High School. I have also photographed for the ACMC Foundation's marketing material. I create invitations, Save the Dates, Thanks You cards, holiday cards for all occasions. Click here to view my selection. I have also facilitated social media marketing plans for Coffee Creek Estates and Herb Garden B&B.
  • Do you offer wedding books? Yes! We design and create your album with high standards to ensure your memories will be preserved for generations to come. Your album will be in a form of a modern book, where the images are printed directly on thick pages. You pick your own cover to tailor your personality.
  • Do you offer engagement sessions? We strongly encourage having an engagement session. This is the time when we learn how to work with each other, to see how the photographer gives directions, learn about tips and tricks on what makes a better photograph. Think of it as a rehearsal before your wedding day portraits. In the end, you get beautiful casual images of you and your fiance. The images can be used for “save the date” cards, wedding invitations, guest signature book, wedding web site, or simply print and hang the artwork in your home. Engagement sessions include a canvas as well.
  • Do you have a studio space? Yes! 1009 Bridge Street Ashtabula, Ohio 44004 above Bridge Street Art Works in the Historic Ashtabula Harbor. When you come visit me make sure you make time to visit all of our shops and restaurants!
  • Can you hold the date for me? We cannot hold the date or pencil you in. To be fair to everyone we cannot hold the date without the deposit and a signed contract. We accept bookings on a first come/first serve basis.
  • Do you retouch my images? Upon request, though I post retouched social media teasers I will add to your gallery. I do edit everything as in create it to be BXW, vintage, clean, filmy and moody,  cropping and Culling. Retouching things like eyes and teeth whiter, skin smoother, distracting items removed, head swapping, can be requested.

PORTRAITS

  • Can I have my portraits take at the studio or on location. Yes.
  • Do you retouch my images? Yes, unless otherwise noted.
  • Does your collections come with anything? The session fee includes my time, a canvas, teasers and a online gallery. Anything else can be ordered.
