Sooo.. you’ve got questions for me…
Where are you based?
I’ve called the San Francisco and Oakland home for the last 15 years, but I have East Coast roots. I take photography jobs nationally and world wide. My passport is current and I love using it!
Will you travel for our wedding?
Yes! I’ll be there with bells on.
I’ve been working as a professional photographer for over a decade. I started working for newspapers after I earned my degree in photography (and Spanish). I love all kinds of photography – from editorial spreads to fashion to weddings. The common thread is my love for witnessing and telling people’s unique stories.
What kind of equipment do you use?
It depends on the shoot. I generally use a Canon 5D mark 3, with a selection of Canon prime and zoom lenses. When more lighting or equipment is needed, I have that too! (And I always bring back up gear just in case).
Yep! Some venues require it, so just let me know and I’ll be happy to send proof their way. Our insurance is covered by Tom C. Pickard & Co. Inc and has liability coverage for up to $2,000,000.
How many photos do I get?
It varies for weddings, but I usually deliver between 500 and 800 photos for a full day.
How soon will we be able to see our photos?
Four to six weeks is my average turnaround time for wedding photographs.
Can I print the photos myself?
Yes! You can print your hearts out. All of my packages include high resolution digital images. Legally, the copyright stays with me as the photographer… meaning if you want to send some images to your favorite wedding blog, let’s talk! Of course I’d love that.
Do you make albums?
Do you offer elopement packages?
I definitely do! I understand that you might be working with a tighter budget when planning to elope, and I’d love to discuss it further.
So Becca, my future husband hates being photographed…
No worries. First of all, he’s gonna be over the moon because he gets to marry his honey. Second…we’re gonna have so much fun.. he’s going to forget about it. And third… there’s always champagne…
I’ve heard of an unplugged wedding…what’s that?
An unplugged wedding is where the guests are asked to turn off all their electronic devices (cellphones, cameras, iPads), throughout the ceremony.
Imagine I’m photographing “you may now kiss the bride” when suddenly 20 iphones are blocking this gorgeous image ..big bummer.
What is a “first look,” and should we do it?
A first look is when a couple sees each other before the ceremony. If many of the formal photos are taken before the ceremony it allows you more time to enjoy the cocktail hour/reception.
