Some Frequently Asked Questions
Ok, so here are some frequently asked questions to help answer some of yours
Q. Your pictures look different, why is that?
A. Unlike a lot of photographers...especially the current flood of newbies, we go beyond in our lighting like no other. Sure at time natural light is fantastic and we use it to its fullest. Often however, it just isnt so magical....in fact, most of the time, even good natural light makes for better images if its augmented a little bit. So we have crafted ways of bringing the best of studio lighting right to your wedding, even outdoors, and even on the run. It's that ability to work with light that really sets us apart.
Q. How long have you guys been in this business.
A. I shot my first wedding in 1986. 1500+ weddings later here we are. There is almost no wedding situation or lighting scenario we haven't encountered, and successfully handled so you can be sure we can handle yours with ease.
Q. How long does it take to get my pictures.
A. Not long at all! Typically, your images will be available online the Monday following your wedding. Yes, you read that right! Your custom designed album will be back in my office in approx 2 weeks.
Q. Is it just you?
A. No, its typically myself and my assistant/second photographer for every event.
Q. Do you do video?
A. No we do not. Our passion is capturing the decisive moments. That runs counter to video capture, where the goal is to capture it all. We can refer you to some great videographers, or you might take a look at our SLIDESHOWS, and decide that fills your multimedia needs without the added cost and significant intrusion on your day. (yes video tends to be quite a bit more intrusive. Think spotlights and microphones. Both have to be quite close. That just doesn't jive with our style, so we don't do it.
Q. What if I'm having a small wedding?
A. We love smaller intimate affairs. Often, the size has no bearing on the level or amount of imagery we are able to provide to you. If you are having only a ceremony, and no reception, we have some smaller plans just for that too, just give us a call.
Q. Do you travel?
A Sure....we love to actually. Across the state, across the nation, or across the sea, makes no difference for us!
Q. What is INFRARED? And why would I want it?
A. The light spectrum is huge, visible light is a mere slice out of the middle that the human eye can see. We have had cameras custom modified to see outside this range, and into the Infrared parts of the light spectrum. It renders things in a completely different way. Bottom line here: It gives you amazing imagery not available thru normal visible light capture, and is NOT a photoshop trick or manipulation. In fact, many of the wall sized wedding images our clients select are from the set of Infrared images we captured on their big day. They are simply out of this world!
Q. Do you only shoot weddings? Actually, no. We shoot a lot of sports, portraits, and business/commercial photography as well. Photography is a full time business for us.
