FAQ

How do you photograph weddings?

I am all about doing it right or not at all. I do not have different packages, I just have one for $4700. I will photograph your entire wedding with an additional photographer I trust, since I don't want to miss any moment of your day. I will edit all photos and ensure a consistent portfolio. Also included is an engagement session prior to your wedding. Contact me to view some of the galleries of other wedding couples I've photographed. I visit every venue prior to your wedding day and want to meet you and your wedding planner. I'd love to set up a personal meeting to discuss all the details.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I am based in Broomfield, Colorado and will travel anywhere within Colorado for your wedding/ portrait shoot. Note, portrait shoot locations in Colorado usually require a photography permit, so you should choose one of my locations - see locations menu with details about that. I either have a permit for those or can acquire them easily. I am available for wedding and other portrait shoots at other locations outside of Colorado at a cost. Contact me to discuss.

When will we get our photos?

Senior or portrait shoots are usually edited within two weeks. You do not need to come in and choose/buy your favorites. All digital high resolution edited photos are complimentary and will be delivered in a downloadable/shareable photo gallery with a print shop attached to your photos should you want to order any prints. I usually send the gallery link with the first few photos the next day and add new edited photos daily until done. Weddings are usually edited within 3 weeks of your wedding date. I only provide those pictures I deem professional within my creative standards. Portrait/Senior shoots include 50+ guaranteed photos. Weddings will vary. Please contact me to discuss.

How do clothes changes work at my shoot?

There is no limit in clothes changes or props at senior or other portrait shoots. Please bring lots of changes - 3 to 6 outfits with all the necessary accessories. I usually have an assistant with me who will help carry all your clothes changes and props in a wagon, so bring all along at your location. I also have a pop-up changing tent available on the spot.

Which location do I choose for senior/portrait shoots?

Most shoots take place at the locations mentioned on my website. Each location page has sample pictures. Browse through those and also contact me for advice. Some locations are big enough for your shoot and others might require you to choose two locations close together in order to assure a wide variety of photos.

How do you photograph senior shoots?

Depending on the date and location(s) you choose, senior shoots usually occur at one location, sometimes two. I often have an assistant at the shoot who will help help carry your clothes changes during your shoot. We will bring along a pop-up changing tent for your convenience. Bring all the clothes changes you'd like, I will try to incorporate as many as I can during your shoot. Most shoots take about 2 hours in the afternoon, but I am flexible to hurry it along for boys, or prolong it for those girls who want to continue. No matter your style, I will help you pose, style and show you your pictures as we go. It's all about the experience as well as the amazing pictures.

Can I share my senior shoot with a friend?

Yes, you can share your 2 hour senior shoot with a friend (s). $970 for one senior, $1200 for two, $1400 for three seniors sharing a shoot. The amount of pictures per person will be lower, since you are sharing the shoot. You will take turns and share the same location. With more than 1 senior, only 1 location will work. Contact me to discuss more details about this option.
