WHAT CAN WE EXPECT TO PAY FOR PHOTOGRAPHY?
The wedding package is $2800 (+tax) for 8 hours of coverage on your wedding day and includes high resolution digital images and a roughly 100 image slideshow of the day. Feel free to send me an email if you're looking for something different than the standard package. I'd love to cater one to your needs. Your wedding is your wedding. I want it to be all of the magical and wonderful dreams and ideas you have for it. It doesn't have to fit into any idea of what a wedding should be. It's your day. It could be a small intimate gathering of your close family and friends and no ceremony or it could be a full day of festivities. Whatever your dream for your wedding is, follow it. And I'll gladly be there to capture all of the magic that is your wedding.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR TRAVEL OR DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
YES. Of course. Who doesn't love travel. I offer flat rates for travel throughout Canada and the United States. Let's talk.
WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?
That's tough. I strive to capture raw and genuine emotion along with an interesting and beautiful photo. I want to capture the emotion so that when you look back on these images you'll remember how you were feeling in that moment, and I hope that's a myriad of feelings. I hope to always be present to capture those small moments (and the large ones) but never interfere with what is happening. I try to stay away from directing, aside from family and bridal party portraits, and let the day roll as it would. I want your day to feel easy and wonderful and how any celebration of love should feel. And I want to be there capturing it all, the beautiful craziness that a wedding is.
WHAT'RE YOUR THOUGHTS ON ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS?
Love them. They're a great way to have some fun before hand and get to know each other. They help me to understand you and what's important to you and thus can trust that I'll be keeping an eye out for all of those important people, relationships, details and feelings on your wedding day. Also, they help you to become comfortable in front of the lens and you get some nice images of the two of you to boot.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN WE EXPECT?
Many. I shoot a TON. You can expect to see 50-70 images per hour of shooting.
DO YOU WORK WITH A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
That's entirely up to you, but usually I encourage it. Having a second photographer helps to capture different angles and perspectives.
HOW CAN WE BOOK YOU?
Send me an email and I can send over a price guide for you to take a look at. After that it's simply a signed contract and a retainer fee of $600 to reserve your date. After that you're set.
WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?
I work with a Canon 5dmarkiii and a Canon 5dmarkii while using an assortment of prime lenses (50mm, 35mm, 135mm). I use a flash for mostly dance floor photos. On top of this I have a whole slew of memory cards.
DOES YOUR PRICING INCLUDE SALES TAX?
PST (8%) and GST (5%) will be added to all events and weddings in Manitoba.
