Who are you?
I’m Chris! I'm a photographer who also loves dogs, Star Trek, lattes, the gym, and cookies. I look like the photo below. However, I may have dyed my hair purple since it was taken. Just kidding. It'd definitely be blue.
What are your rates?
Wedding photography starting at $2600 – check here for more information.
What’s it like for someone to be following us all day taking photos?
I try to be as unobtrusive as possible. The best compliment I've received is “I completely forgot you were there.”
WILL YOU DO OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?
I’d love to. If it’s not included in the package you select, you can add it on. I find that engagement shoots are a great opportunity for us to get to know each other.
HOW LONG UNTIL I GET MY PHOTOS?
Generally one to three months, depending on my backlog. Good things come to those who wait =)
Will you only provide a limited number of photos?
There are no limits on the number of photos I take.
I know there you say “no limits” on the number of photos, but how many will I receive?
This varies depending on the length of your wedding, but normally about 500-600 processed photos.
What does “processed” mean?
When you see a photo in a magazine or on the internet, it’s rarely straight out of the camera. I hand-pick the best photos from the day and finely tune the color and exposure.
HOW'D YOU GET INTO PHOTOGRAPHY?
I got my degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2007 and then decided I enjoyed photography more.
Do you really process EACH photo you deliver?
Sure do! Imagine if you were only given the rough draft of a book, or only part of your favorite song. I refuse to provide you with a subpar product.
Do you take requests for certain photos?
As long as you give me a list, I’ll do my best to capture it.
What can we do with the photos after we get them?
I provide you with an image release which allows you to make an unlimited number of prints for personal use and to post the photos on Facebook, Twitter, etc. (as long as you provide attribution to me)
Can you recommend any wedding planners?
Do you have a studio?
Nope. I find that the locations you choose and that mean something to you are the best studios I could ask for.
How about insurance?
Yup! Let me know if you need details.
How far do you travel?
As far as you need me to! I’ll ask you to pay for mileage and tolls, however.
Will you be annoyed if our family and friends take photos at my wedding?
As long as they don’t try to pose you or divert your attention (or walk in front of my camera) while I’m trying to shoot your portraits, I don’t mind at all.
