Where are you based?
I am based in Brick on the beautiful New Jersey shoreline.
What is your service area?
World-wide! I love to travel, whether it be out of the state or out of the country. Anything further than 150 miles from zipcode 08753 is subject to an additional travel charge.
What equipment do you shoot with?
I shoot with Canon digital cameras and lenses and always carry backups. Occasionally, I also bring a few film cameras along to shoot with. If that’s something you’re interested in let me know and I’ll be sure to include that at our shoot.
How do you accept payments?
I accept payment via cash, check or credit card. 50% is due at the time the contract is signed with the remaining due two weeks prior to the shoot.
Why do you love engagement shoots?
My answer for this one is always a two-parter. The first part is that it helps my couples. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t consider myself a model when it comes to having my picture taken. An engagement session is two hours where you will get used to being photographed by me and the outcome is having great photos that you can use for save the dates, thank you cards or just for hanging around your home. It also makes the wedding day go much smoother, it’s one less thing you’ll have to worry about. Instead of thinking about a stranger spending the day photographing you, you can think about what an awesome day it is to marry your best friend.
The second part of this answer is a selfish one, it helps me! Not every couple is the same. An engagement shoot helps me figure out what you respond best to as far as communication and posing goes and it helps me see what you may or may not be comfortable with. If we figure these things out during an engagement session I can go into your wedding feeling extra confident that you’ll be comfortable, happy and will look stunning.
Why do you use so many exclamation points in your e-mails?
I don’t know! Talking to couples just makes me really excited!! Sorry!!!
