Frequently Asked Questions



Before the Big day



YES! I will be the person taking your pictures. I will often bring an assistant to help. If I am booked on your wedding date, I will refer you to consider one of my great associate photographers.
95% of my photography business is weddings ! I used to be a photojournalist for a newspaper and accept editorial work for a few magazines. In the past 5 years , I’ve photographed almost only weddings ! I feel that it’s a huge advantage to the couples I photograph to have someone that specializes in weddings. Wedding photography has unique characteristics that make it different from any other type of photography. Having a photographer who is completely comfortable shooting weddings leads to a more relaxed day for the bride and groom!
I shoot weddings in a way that allows you to enjoy your day ! I do a lot of unposed shots ( photojournalism style ) and I pose your family and couple shots. I also pull you aside for a shot here and there. The majority of my time on the wedding day is spent moving around you to get the best light and angles. I let the wedding day happen without constant direction from me.
I shoot with a Canon 40D. The high resolution images can be enlarged to 24 by 36 inches perfectly (absolutely no distortion or loss of image quality) though most people only enlarge wedding photos up to 16 by 20′s. I also have professional Canon cameras for my negative equipment. I ALWAYS have backup equipment OF THE SAME HIGH QUALITY AS MY ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT with me. Generally, I’ll be carrying 3 sets of camera’s and lenses to your wedding.
The images are High Resolution images. You can print from your CD. They are not marked with a watermark or copyright. You own the images!
Yes! My digital artist goes through EVERY IMAGE and then I go through them to do additional editing and retouching. The extensive editing is what gives your pictures a polished and professional look. I spend every bit as much time doing editing work as a did when I first started weddings and was working in only film. I include many crops, many black and whites, and many retouched images on your CD! I provide additional retouching at no extra charge. This includes airbrushing skin, fixing “fly-aways” in hair, objects in the background, etc.
I’ve have loved it forever! I’ve known since I was a teenager that it’s what I wanted to do and I can’t imagine doing anything else! I have a news and magazine photography background, but my work now is mostly weddings!
Yes! I always have 10-12 FULL WEDDINGS uploaded and ONLINE.
You can find complete weddings on shutterfly on this page.
You can find my most recent complete weddings on this page.
Call me at 866 507 2261 and I can give you names and passwords for even MORE complete weddings.
Yes, I have worked with hundreds of talented wedding professionals and can often help you find another pro at no extra charge.
Yes! It also means that it’s important to me that my customers are VERY happy with my work! I depend of my former customers to keep doing business. It also helps keep costs down for my customers ( by not having to pay for expensive advertising) while still providing TOP QUALITY photography.
Yes! I’ve done weddings in almost half the states in the country! I’ve been to Jamaica, Mexico, and Costa Rica for destination weddings! Travel is a personal interest of mine and it’s worked well to blend that with shooting. I’ve had the chance to see some GREAT places!


Questions About Reserving Wedding Photography Services



It’s easy ! Give me a call at 801 556 3301 to make sure your date is open and visit a little about the wedding. I’ll fill out a sample contract for you with your all your wedding details ( date , location , shoot you selected ) and email this contract to you. Shoots require a deposit of 25% to lock in a date.
I try to accommodate last minute bookings . However , I do take on a limited number of wedding per year (between 35-40 events ). Taking a limited number of weddings per year guarantees excellent service for my couples before, during , and AFTER the wedding! Every year, I do have to turn some weddings down in order to make sure I have enough time to edit images and create albums. I can usually take last minute events during the low season, but not during the high season.


On the Wedding Day



Yes ! I will be at your wedding location between 30 minutes and an hour early to check everything out , meet your families, and find the best spots for some formal photographs.
Only if it’s less than 30 minutes away. If you have more than a 30 minute drive or have more than two locations, I can spend extra time to cover what you need without charging you for the travel between spots.
No. Expect an average of about 100 pictures per hour.
How will you be dressed for the photo shoot?
I’m always in black / grey slacks and a nice shirt.
It’s appreciated, but never required. If I take a break to eat, you get 15-20 minutes added on to the end of your shoot so that you get your full shoot time.


After the Shoot Session



5 weeks. We can also email a few previews if you need a few faster.
We retouch light and contrast ON ALL images. I go through the images and choose around 20% of my favorites for more extensive retouches including light skin touches, removing people from background if needed, turning images to black and white. You'll get your original image too along with the retouches. Additional retouching after you see the pictures is FREE on up to 10 additional images!
