"It's not enough to just own a camera. Everyone owns a camera.
To be a photographer, you must understand, appreciate,
and harness the power you hold!"
- Mark Denman
Being a wedding photographer is an amazing opportunity to capture the most precious and intimate moments of a couple's life. While creating beautiful visuals that will narrate the story of the couple's special day, I strive to bring out the couple's personality and the unique spirit of their union in each shot and it's an honor to be part of creating something lasting and meaningful for them.
In the midst of telling love stories, I'm a creative soul, with a passion for more than just love stories. Each portrait I create is an opportunity to capture something special and make it last forever. I love the challenge of creating a portrait that stands out and can be remembered for years to come.
I am based in Akron, in Northeast Ohio, but I am more than happy to travel! There is a small mileage fee for anything outside of 25 miles round trip from Copley, OH. If anything is 40 miles+ or out of state, we can discuss travel fees!
WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?
I do not give out my RAW images or proofs of them for a few reasons. The remaining images that I took during our shoot are unfinished products and are not the true representation of my work and I have taken the time to go through the entire gallery to pick the very best for you as my client. Many of them that I have not sent in the gallery, have been picked out for a few reasons (identical pose, too high/low exposure, blur, etc).
DO YOU GIVE OUT RAW/UNEDITED IMAGES?
I ask for 2-4 weeks turnaround time for the complete collection for anything that is not a wedding or large event, and a 6-8 weeks turnaround time for a complete Wedding collection, with a one-week sneak peek for all collections.
Want your images quicker? I have a RUSH FEE option for any packages! This can be added at sign of contract or can be discussed later. Ask me about my RUSH rates!
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
I can be somewhat flexible, but my prices are an extension to my knowledge and experience. We can discuss special circumstances, but please know that certain aspects to the closest package will be effected.
WILL YOU WORK WITH MY BUDGET?
I have multiple hard drives and multiple backups. I do ask that when you download your gallery, you back up your files on the off chance something happens to mine. Once the final gallery is delivered and you have downloaded it, I remove it from my site in 3 months. If you need to get back into it at any time, that is not a problem at all. I can get you back into your gallery for $50.
HOW LONG DO YOU STORE FILES FOR?
I as the Photographer will own all right, title and interest in all Work Product, but you as the Client will have personal use, (social media posting, Christmas cards, etc.) but you cannot post/share for profit.
DO I GET THE COPYRIGHT /OWNERSHIP OF MY PHOTOS
