Contracts and Business Stuff

When will we receive the contract? Whenever you’d like to receive it. I’m happy to email it over for you to look over and sign.

How much of a deposit do you require? Usually, I break my payments up into thirds, so it just depends on how much your package is. When is it due? When the contract is signed.

Do you accept payments in installments? Yes, of course.

What is your refund or cancellation policy? The first payment is nonrefundable and other payments are refundable if cancellation is made 60 days before the wedding date.

Do you have liability insurance? Yes

Do you carry backup equipment?  Yes, of course. I carry an extra of everything that I use on a wedding day.

What is the backup plan if you are unable to shoot my wedding for an unexpected reason? If I can not photograph your wedding I will find a suitable professional photographer of my style and caliber to photograph your wedding and I will still edit the images.

How will you be dressed? I dress in all black, (it helps with my blending into the background), usually a long jumpsuit or a long dress, with a blazer or cardigan. If you have a request for me to wear something specific just ask.

Can we request a list of specific shots we would like? You can, but I prefer just to have a list of family members that you want for family photos and a VIP list of individuals that should be photographed. I have a pretty decent shot list in my head of things to cover. But, if you know something is important to you feel free to let me know. I mean, if you need a photograph of you and your significant other with tacos, I’m so down to photograph that.

Will you be posting about our wedding on your website and social media? Will you be submitting our photos to magazines or blogs? I might, most likely there will be a post on social media and sometimes images will be featured on my website. I submit to magazines and blogs occasionally. If you’d like me to submit your wedding to a magazine or blog just let me know, bonus if you had one in mind. Also, if you’d like to submit your wedding, go for it!
