FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE PER WEDDING?

Wedding commissions start at $3500.  Get in touch for more detailed Pricing info.

 

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?

I deliver roughly 600-750 images per wedding.

 

HOW DO I RECEIVE THE IMAGES?

All images are delivered via a 1 year online gallery - where you can download images, mark images as private, share the gallery, favorite images, and order prints.

 

ARE ALL IMAGES HIGH-RESOLUTION?

Yes!  I deliver high-resolution fully edited non-watermarked images via the private online gallery.

 

DO YOU INCLUDE BLACK & WHITE IMAGES?

Yes.  Roughly 15-20% of the final images delivered are in black & white, unless otherwise requested.  I use black & white for a photojournalistic classic feel & typically to convey a documentary look to your wedding collection.  I shoot most black & white in the getting ready & reception portions of your wedding day.

 

CAN WE OPT OUT OF THE BLACK & WHITE IMAGES?

Of course!  I need to know this before your wedding date, though.

 

DO YOU OFFER A SECOND SHOOTER?

Yes, half of my collections include a Second Shooter for six hours of consecutive coverage.

 

HOW MUCH FILM DO YOU SHOOT AT EACH WEDDING?

For 2017 weddings I currently shoot roughly 20-30 rolls of film per wedding.  I also shoot in digital, but am moving towards a film only business.

 

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR FILM PROCESSED?

I get my film processed at Photovision Lab in Salem, Oregon.

 

IS IT SAFE & SECURE?

Yes!  Shooting film is just as safe & secure as shooting digital.  

 

HOW DO YOU DELIVER THE FILM IMAGES?

After being processed, the film is scanned & then retouched by me.  In the end you receive your film images along with the digital images in your online gallery.

 

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I use Pentax 645 and Contax 645 medium format film cameras, as well as a Canon AE-1 film camera for documentary black & white photos.  I shoot primarily on Fuji film.  For digital I use a Sony A7Rii camera with Zeiss lenses.  

 

DO YOU HAVE BACK-UPS?

Yes, multiple back ups!  I bring about 4-5 cameras to each wedding.

 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes.

HOW DO I BOOK YOU?

To book me for your date I need a signed contract (which you complete online) and $1000 non-refundable & non-transferrable retainer.  This reserves me for your date.  The $1000 is then credited toward your final balance.

 

WHEN IS THE FULL AMOUNT DUE?

Six weeks before your wedding date.

 

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU SHOOT FOR AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

An engagement session is 90 min at a Twin Cities location of your choice.  I shoot six rolls of color film and 1 roll of black & white.  Altogether you get 60-75 edited final images.
