Q: Do you photograph more than one wedding a day?
A: Your wedding and its coverage are very important to me; I only contract for one event per day. All my attention is on your special day, not someone else’s.

Q: Do you scout out the wedding and reception locations before the wedding day?
A: I normally arrive well before the photographic start time to check for the best lighting locations and backgrounds. I have found it’s best to scout out locations on the actual day or possibly the day before the event.
Q: Can selected images be in black and white or sepia tone in addition to the color images?
A: Yes, I can also convert selected images to infrared, cross processing, heavy grain texture, duotone look, E6 effect, soft focus and a special soft plastic lens look.
