Do we get the raw, unedited files?

No, these files are not available for viewing or to purchase. The images from your wedding day will be carefully selected and edited for final delivery in JPEG format.


Can you hold a date for me?

I wish I could, but unfortunately with only 4 weekends in a month, they tend to fill up quickly.  The only way to ensure that I will be your wedding photographer is to have a signed agreement accompanied by the retainer. 


What if traveling is involved?

Depending on the destination you have chosen for you wedding day, we may be in need of a hotel reservation, airfare, as well as rental car.
