Where are you located?
I am located in Oak Harbor, Washington on Whidbey Island.
What kind of photographer are you?
Love, life and adventure photographer with a focus on natural light with hues of traditional, photo-journalistic and artistic.
How can I get a hold of you?
The best way to reach me is by filling out the contact form here on my site or by emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow up to 48 hours for me to return client emails.
What’s included in my investment?
The session fee includes a pre-session consultation, either via email, phone and even Skype to discuss your session. It includes the time at your session and an online gallery with your edited images. I try to get galleries available 2-4 weeks after your session but keep in mind that during the busy season (summer) this can change.
How much do I need to deposit?
I request a 25% initial deposit to secure your date, 50% prior to event and the remaining 25% for me to release the photos to you. I accept cash and payments through my online gallery shoot proof.
How far should I book in advance?
For weddings typically 6-12 months in advance or as soon as you have a date and venue. If you’re not the plan way in the advance type of person do not be too concerned, check with me for availability.
Do you travel?
I love to travel and will generally arrive at least the day before the event to help ensure that unexpected travel delays do not make me late or miss your big day. Let me know where you are and we’ll figure out the best way to get me out to you. I do require that the clients invest in a flight for me as well as overnight stay accommodations if travel is outside Washington state or driving is greater than 4 hours
Do you shoot in Black and White?
I enjoy a variety of different textured shots. There is something so timeless about them. Since I shoot digital, this allows me to decide after the fact whether I want to process the image in B&W or Color. However, I generally shoot the image with a color preference in mind based on what I am seeing.
Do you offer albums or prints?
Yes and no. I enjoy giving the freedom to download high resolution photos to my clients so they can have the freedom and shop for the company they prefer, however, I do offer printing from a lab ( Millers lab) on my website if they prefer that as well.
Will you post the photographs online?
I certainly hope so. I generally will post about every shoot on my facebook and website. I have you sign a model release. Its how I promote my job and that is by showing off my work.
What is a “investment fee”?
It is your investment to cover our time to shoot and process the images from your session, hosting your proofs in an online gallery for 1 year as well as travel time/expenses. It is non-refundable.
Where will my session take place?
Your session can take place at almost any location (including your home). Travel within 120 miles of zip code 98277 is included with every session. Even so, I love to photograph new and exciting locations! Do you already have a location in mind? Great! Just let me know and I will do everything I can to accommodate!
What happens if the weather doesn’t cooperate?
I love very moody weather however rain and wind are inevitable. I try to keep a very close eye on the weather forecast and will reschedule your outdoor session as soon as possible if I feel it isn’t conducive for you.
