What is your backup system? Images are transferred to a working desktop and backed up daily on a raid backup system. Also, photographs are backed up to two alternating off site hard drives everyday. Needless to say, we have it covered as best we can!
Will the assistants and other photographers you hire to help shoot my wedding be people you have worked with before? Yes, I have a select group of dedicated associate and assistant photographers who whom work with me frequently.
When can we see our photos? Each image is hand selected and edited to tell your wedding day story. This process takes typically takes about 10-15 weeks for weddings and 2 to 3 weeks for portrait sessions. Once completed, we will set up your premier appointment to celebrate, discuss your wedding album and do any ordering. After your premier, images are posted online to share with family and friends for nine months.
What happens if you are sick and injured and cannot shoot our wedding? I have lots of amazingly talented local photographer friends that will come to your rescue! My associate photographer is fully briefed on your wedding day prior to your event. Rest assured every effort will be made to ensure you have amazing wedding photography to look back on from your special day.
