We are open Monday - Friday from 10am to 5:30pm. It is best to call during these times. If it is after hours or a weekend please send a email. Sometimes I do have weddings on weekdays so it is best to call and make an appointment before coming to the studio.
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are right beside Haynes at 5312 Virginia Beach Blvd , Virginia Beach, Virginia 23462.
Q: Do you charge a retainer / deposit?
A: Yes we charge a retainer fee to save your date. For more information on this contact me to set up a meeting!
Q: Do you have a studio?
A: Yes! My studio is equipped to fit up to 6 people (adults) in front of one backdrop. Photos of my studio can be found here.
Q: How many images do we receive from a photo shoot?
A: You will see 50-60 images in your gallery from a 1-2 hour photo shoot. If you choose the smaller 30 min shoot you will see 10-20 images.
Q: How long do you leave the images in the online gallery?
A: Your images are in a privet online gallery on my website for a unlimited amount of time! You can purchase prints and products a year after your wedding or photo session! If I ever need to move or shut down a gallery I would let you know but I do not put a limit or charge extra for hosting your gallery for a long period.
A: Yes! Cash, Credit card, or Check. I can take credit cards over the phone and email the contract to you as well.
A: When purchasing digital images you sign a print release. This means that you can have the images printed else where (I do have suggestions). I still hold the copyrights to the image with the right to use them on my website and in any advertising. I do ask that you do not edit the images (excluding cropping for printing). If you would like any image edited you can ask me to do so. Most edits are not a extra cost.
Q: How much is shipping on prints and products?
A: Currently shipping is $8 for local shipments. Inquire about shipping in other states.
Q: How do we know you are the right photographer for us?
A: Ask yourself these questions: Do you love the photos I have displayed here ? Do you prefer photojournalistic or traditional photo? (Our style is a mix of photojournalistic with the traditional posed photos). Am I within your budget? (I do offer a bridal registry and payment plans if cost is a concern).
Q: Do you have backup equipment?
A: Yes I bring a backup camera and some backup lenses to every wedding.
Q: How much time do you spend at our wedding?
A: If you purchase a full day wedding service we arrive about a half an hour before you start to get ready for your big day and leave when you are ready to have us go. Hourly Packages are also avalible!
Q: Will you be the only photographer at our wedding?
A: Weddings that are 4 hours or more will include two photographers. I photograph weddings that are three hours or less by myself.
Q: Do you have any suggestions for vendors or any tips?
A: I do have helpful blog posts for brides here. During your consultation I will suggest other vendors and when you book you can take this information home in my contract booklet.
Q: How many images do we receive in our online gallery and/or on our CD?
A: If we cover a full day you will get 300+ images in your gallery and on your CD (if purchased).
