What different services do you offer?

I specialize in weddings, portraits, and engagement shoots. 

What are your rates? 

My packages are $1,095 for four hours of coverage; $1,395 for six hours of coverage, and $1,695 for eight hours of coverage. All packages can be customized to meet your needs. For detailed rates, please drop me a line on the "contact" page for more detailed investment information (please include the date of the wedding). =) 

What regions do you cover? And do you travel outside of the Midwest?

I am based in Grand Rapids, Michigan and regularly cover Detroit, Chicago, Traverse City, Kalamazoo, South Bend, and Fort Wayne as well. I also love to do weddings outside of the Midwest, and couples often find it surprisingly affordable because of the difference in cost of living between Grand Rapids and other more expensive regions. Iā€™d love you give you a more specific quote if you want to drop me a line. =)

Do you ask for a retainer? 

Yes, i ask a 50% retainer and a contract signed by both of us in order to reserve your date. 

When will I get to see my photos? 

My turnaround time is 4 weeks. Drawing from several thousand hours of post-production experience, I take my time to make each image the best it can be. 

How will I get the images? 

All packages include digital delivery of processed images, free of charge.

Do I get the rights to print my photos wherever I like?

Of course!

Do you carry backup gear? 

Yes!

How long have you been shooting?

I've been shooting for twelve years and have photographed hundreds of live events. 

Can I meet you before I book you for my wedding? 

Yes! Yes, yes, yes! Let me take you out for coffee, and we can get to know each other! Bring your family if you want! Bring the dog! Bring the kids! 

Will you let me give you some ideas for photos I'd like taken at my wedding? 

Of course! It's your day, after all! 

Why should we entrust our day to you? 

I would say that most importantly, I understand how important your wedding day and photographs are to you, and I do everything I can to make it the best experience possible. At your wedding, I really enjoy being around everyone present and capturing the wonderful things I witness. It's a lot of fun, and it's an awesome feeling to give you the collection of beautiful moments that I witnessed on that day.
