Frequently asked questions
How long have you been shooting weddings?
A. I have been shooting weddings since 2003 and have shot over 300 weddings in those 17 years.
Where are you based and do you travel?
A. I live in Oklahoma City and, yes, I love to travel! I have photographed weddings and events in 17 states and 3 countries.
What is your turnaround time on delivering photos?
A. You will receive an online gallery link with all your wedding photos within 4-6 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
For portrait shoots, my turnaround time averages 3 weeks and sometimes sooner depending on the season.
How many pictures will we receive?
A. On average for 8 hours of wedding coverage, I deliver between 400 to 600 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story. The photos you receive will be ready to print and hang in your home. If you are wanting certain photos to be more thoroughly edited for large prints, we can discuss those options.
Portrait sessions usually yield about 50-75 finished images.
Who are your second shooters?
A. While I do feel completely confident shooting most weddings solo, sometimes it is necessary to book a second photographer to document your wedding day. I usually recommend booking a package with a second photographer when your guest list exceeds 300 people or if you are wanting a dedicated photographer to document behind the scenes moments with the girls and the guys separately. In most cases my second shooters are photographers who have completed my internship program. I have trained them to shoot and approach a wedding day in the same style and manner in which I work, so I have complete confidence in knowing that the work they produce will compliment the work that I shoot and deliver to you. Once I have checked their availability, I will book the best photographer for your event.
What kind of gear do you use?
A. I have always been a Canon guy. That's what I learned with in photography school and that's what I've stuck with. If I'm shooting medium format film, I use a Contax 645 camera. Don't worry, I always carry back up equipment for ease of mind. I am also completely capable of shooting in dimly lit spaces during receptions and portraits with my own lighting equipment. It is definitely important to be able to shoot not only in that beautiful natural sunlight, but also be able to create light for my subjects that makes them look their best.
Besides weddings, what else do you shoot?
A. I stay busiest with wedding photography but I also shoot head shots, commercial work, food, and just about everything else. Did you know my wife and I publish a local food magazine in Oklahoma called Edible OKC? What's better than meeting new people, photographing their food, and then getting to eat it? It's kind of a dream job!
