WE DON'T LIVE IN NJ OR NEAR THE TRI-STATE AREA, IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR YOU TO TRAVEL ?
Weddings in NJ do not have an additional charge. For weddings more than 50 miles outside of the New Brunswick Area or further than Philadelphia/NYC areas, travel fees are the IRS standard for mileage which is .55 cents per mile. I really will travel to where ever your wedding is, I love destinations and a good adventure.
ARE YOU INSURED?
I am fully covered.. If your venue needs proof of insurance just let me know and I'll be happy to provide that for you.
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
For weddings it's 60 days for photos and 90 days for films. With a sneak preview of the wedding within 48-72 hours. For engagements it's around 3 weeks. All of your images are delivered online in a private gallery and you'll be downloading the full resolution images!
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?
Typically a 7 hour wedding will receive around 300-400 images. A 2-3 hour engagement usually receives around 50-80 images.

WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?
I shoot Canon only, it's my favorite color profile and I've been with them since my humble beginnings. I trust your images with their codecs and file formats. I rent extra equipment at times and bring extra props on shoots, when the occasion arises. I like to pose but keep things natural. So while I do stage, I also want you to feel in the moment. Deep breaths, laughs, holding hands, etc. I enjoy the candidness of a posed photograph and to see your choice of movements and interpretations of my direction. I love landscapes and close-ups. A mixture of the breadth of magnitude combined with the details of an intimate moment. I use softboxes/external lights and natural light. Unlike many "natural" light photographers, I can shoot at night as well, which is especially important for most receptions and ballrooms. I am fully equipped and skilled in the art of lighting. I can see where and how a light source will hit my subject before I even press the shutter. My camera is always in Manual and I will always be present as first photographer. If you decide to go with Film only, I am the second shooter.
WHO EDITS AND HOW DO YOU EDIT?
I edit the photos in Lightroom, retouch in Photoshop when necessary and edit the films in Premiere Pro. I use Adobe Creative Cloud because everything syncs together. Even my are contracts are virtual through Adobe Acrobat. I try to lightly retouch, make colors pop, clear the skin and balance the tones, while keeping everything as realistic as possible. I create photocomps on the side and practice my PS skills. daily. With the video edits, I take soundbites from your reception speeches and your ceremony, and create a documentary film. The trailer will cut together the important moments with stylized-broll and candid moments; like kissing at the altar, the cake-cutting and bouquet toss. The longer film will incorporate the Ceremony and the key events of the Reception. Everything is smooth, personalized and thoughtful. Everything goes under a revision process, for you to browse through and make sure everything is to your liking! I usually don't get many revisions, because we're meticulous in the first place. I make sure you look good, your family looks good, your friends and your bridal party. I make sure that everything is clean and timeless, so that when you look back, nothing feels dated by washed-out tones, and passing IG trends. Vibrant colors never grow old, but that doesn't mean I'm afraid of the occasional Black and White.
