Frequently Asked Wedding Photography Questions You're a photojournalist. How did you get into photographing weddings? Photojournalists photograph life unfolding, without interfering with the natural flow of the event. I started photographing weddings as soon as it became clear that many couples preferred their wedding to be photographed organically, rather than posed and art-directed like a fashion shoot. I photograph weddings the same way I photograph journalistic assignments: I capture moments that tell the story, without interference, and allow you to fully participate in and enjoy your wedding events. If you're looking for more of a staged and art-directed, supermodel-for-a-day experience, then we may not be a good fit. But if you're looking for intimate, elegantly composed photographs that tell your love story and capture the joy of your wedding, then I'm your photographer. Do you shoot the details and family group shots? Yes and yes. No wedding photography collection would be complete without gorgeous photographs documenting the special details you worked so hard to put together. I'll also create classically beautiful photographs of your family and friends. Also know that I am experienced working with group portraits, so you can get back to enjoying your day. Do you do location wedding photography, outside of the Pacific Northwest? I do. They take a bit more advance planning, but I love them. How many wedding day photos should we expect? I take many hundreds of photos and then do a "light edit" to present you with the widest range of great shots. These shots usually number between 300 and 500, depending on the specifics of your event. What are your wedding photography packages? Because I photograph a relatively small number of weddings, I don't need to create one-size-fits-all packages. When we meet to get acquainted, we'll discuss your specific wedding plans and what you're looking for in your wedding photography, and I will create a customized program for you. I also work with talented designers and album companies to create heirloom-quality wedding photo collections that will provide you with a lifetime of memories. Your photographs are AMAZING!
