Wedding Ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel - Austin Wedding Photographer



How long have you been shooting weddings professionally?

I photographed my first wedding in July 2008 and have been hooked ever since!

What is required to book my date?

Once we decide on a collection that best fits your needs, I will send you an online booking proposal to read and review. Signing the contract and a 25% deposit is required to officially book the date.

Do we receive the high-resolution files of the images and are we able to print them?

Yes! You will receive a USB with the high-resolution files and a print release to be able to reproduce them at the lab of your choice. Of course, we recommend using a high-quality lab that uses calibrated monitors for the best quality. If you are interested in printing an image larger than 11×14, I recommend emailing me and ordering directly through me. I can do additional retouches and manage the print production to make sure it is perfect!

How long before we receive the images after the wedding day?

The highest care is taken to process your images and get them ready for print. The turnaround time is 6 to 8 weeks depending on the season.

When are the high-resolution files released?

If you have ordered an album, they will be sent after the album design has been approved. If you have not ordered an album, they will be sent 2 to 3 weeks after the wedding is delivered electronically.

Do you deliver RAW, unedited images?

I capture my images in RAW, unedited files by my camera, therefore they are large files and are only seen by special software. I work to enhance each image and deliver them in JPEG format that is easily read by standard computer software. I do not deliver raw images.

What equipment do you use? Do you bring backups?

I shoot with Canon equipment – Canon 5d Mark IV and Canon 5d Mark III camera bodies and an array of lenses. I bring backup equipment to every wedding.

When do portrait sessions (engagements/bridals) take place?

My portrait sessions take place Monday through Thursday with some Fridays available. Weekend dates (most often Sundays) can be selected approximately 6 weeks in advance and include a weekend fee of $250.

What is the turnaround for portrait session images?

3 weeks from the portrait session date.
