wedding f.a.q.

Do you require a deposit to book?

Unlike many wedding photographers, I do not require 50% of your package down to book. Instead, I require a flat $1000 non-refundable retainer. This allows you to secure your date now and choose your package later as your planning evolves.

Do you travel?

I live for adventure and I'd love to travel to be a part of yours. For anywhere beyond 50 miles from Pittsburgh, PA, I require an additional travel fee of 58 cents per mile after 50 miles. If your location is greater than 200 miles from Pittsburgh, PA, I require a lodging fee. Lodging fees depend on the average cost of accommodation in the area.

Are you lgbt+ friendly?

Yes, yes, yes! As a member of the LGBT+ community myself, I welcome love of all kinds. It is important to me that everything - from the language on my website to the posing instructions I use on your wedding day - are gender neutral and inclusive to everyone.

Do you bring backup gear?

Absolutely. It's my job as your photographer to be prepared for anything. I always have secondary cameras, lenses, and accessories with me in case of emergency.

How long will it take to get my photos back?

During the peak wedding season [ May - September ], my turnaround times are 6-8 weeks for editing and processing. In offseasons, my turnaround times are 4-6 weeks.

Who is your second shooter?

All of my second shooters are trusted industry professionals I have worked with before. If I wouldn't trust them to shoot my own wedding, I won't trust them to shoot yours.

Can I order prints through you?

Absolutely! While my collections include full printing rights, printing with me ensures color consistency and professional level products. I offer high-quality, archival prints, museum quality photo art decor, and gorgeous handcrafted albums.
