What Kind Of Photographer are you?
I specialize in shooting weddings, families, maternity and couples. I consider myself quite versatile, and I am open to any fresh and exciting photography or videography opportunities
What if i AM SICK FOR MY SESSION?
Please, please, please do not come to any session actively sick. I will happily reschedule you into a future mini session, or an alternate date if you have a full session. I have an infant at home with me, and when i get sick it will also affect my ability to capture other families memories, and could also get my other clients sick. Message me if you are feeling unwell and we can chat about options!
wHAT ABOUT CANCELLATIONS?
All of my retainers are non-refundable and are in place to secure your booking - whether it be for a family, mini or wedding. I may have missed out on booking another client and is in place for the time spent communicating, and reserving your spot. If you were to cancel all monies paid will not be refunded, if you were to reschedule we can definitely use your payments towards a future date! If I were to for some reason cancel due to an illness or accident, every effort would be made to find a replacement, in event that I were unable to provide a replacement everything would be refunded.
What is an edited feature film?
An edited feature film is a longer, more detailed video of your day. I shoot with two cameras when filming wedding videos so I am able to capture the grooms reaction of his bride walking down the aisle AND the brides reaction as well. I edit between the 2 cameras to make everything appear very smooth, and seamless - from ceremony, speeches, and first dance- it is definitely a popular request. These videos are typically around 45- 75 minutes long depending on how long your package is, transportation time constraints, number of speeches, and how long the activities of the day are.
What are retouched photos
Retouched photos are my way of making your day look more uniform and getting rid of any minor annoying details, such as a pimple, power lines, or any other eyesores. I also colour correct, and adjust the exposure to make your pictures even more personalized.
hOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY WEDDING PHOTO\VIDEO?
For my photography packages, it can take 3-12 weeks to receive your full album - however, there will be some sneak peaks given the following week via social media. Highlight Videos typically take up to 4 weeks for delivery, and an edited feature film is 6-10 months.Feature films generally take me around 2-3 weeks to edit so I choose to wait until the wedding season is over so I can fully focus on their day. Editing is a time consuming part of being a photographer, but I want to make sure your photos are of great quality, balancing life with my family is important to me as well so please understand I truly am working any chance I get!
how much is the deposit?
Upon booking I require 50% for Minis & full sessions with the remainder due on the day of the shoot. For weddings i require a 25% Retainer - the remaining three payments are spread out over the time of your wedding to give you more breathing space.
How long until I get my USB PACKAGE?
I typically have packages done by January - March of the following year due to the amount of details and local goodies will be in the box that year. Each package contains a custom wooden engraved box with some of my favourite photos from your day, along with your USB. Each year I select different NB Business to support and give back to you. I want to make sure your physical items are of quality for the years to come!
What is an unplugged ceremony?
An unplugged ceremony is when you ask all guests to turn off their phones and to refrain from taking photos during your big moment. We want your guests to be present and experience this memory with you first hand and to let the professionals do their work to capture such an important shot.I require that an announcement be made prior to the ceremony to ensure that no electronics are out, as your guests are also in the photos you will be looking back on, and the last thing you want is to see your family looking at their phones other than you! If you are looking to get some cellphone footage of your day, designate one person to capture it, preferably not a family member that will be in photos. I have implemented this as I have had shots ruined by guests stepping out into the aisle or sticking their phones out which ruins the focus on my camera and misses you walking down the aisle with your dad, or your first kiss!
Your family should be focusing on what is happening between you two, and relax for this portion of the day. The remainder of the day is definitely free game for cellphone pics!
