Q: How much does it cost to have my wedding, headshot, event or project photographed?
A: My fee varies depending on the length of time required to photograph your wedding, event or protrait session. I work on an hourly rate. The first hour would be at $100.00 and each additional hour would be $50.00. The final cost would include the time required to photograph your event or session, and the time required to edit your photographs to their finished best. I also charge for travel time if it is beyond a half hour drive each way to your location. For example, a wedding which would require me to be on site for ten hours would cost approximately $550.00. Additionally, it would typically require another eight to ten hours of editing the images. An average wedding would produce several hundred images. This would bring the approximate cost for a typical wedding to $1050.00. A session to complete headshots in my studio would cost $100 to $150 depending on the amount of images required. I am always willing to work with you to provide a competitive quote to meet your budget. Q: What kind of equipment do you use?
A: I use Sony Full Frame professional cameras as well as a large and varied selection of lenses including zoom,wide angle and portrait lenses so that I can capture every possible type of image for your photography needs. One of the great advantages of my Sony equipment is that because it is a mirrorless system it is relatively small and unobtrusive so I can easily blend into your wedding or event. I can also set my cameras to shoot in a completely silent mode so that even in the quietest church or venue you cannot hear my camera. I also have several different types of portable flashes as well as studio and portable strobe lights available.
Q: Do you have a studio?
A: Yes, I have a fully equipped studio located in Hamilton that is stylish, comfortable, freshly decorated and relaxing. In my studio I can provide professional headshots and portraits as well as many other types of images using professional lighting and backdrops.
Q: How long will it take to receive my photographs, and how will they be provided to me?
A: I know that receiving your images quickly is important to you, so I typically offer a five to seven day turnaround time depending on the amount of images taken. I will upload the fully edited high resolution images to an online storage folder, and I will provide a link to you via e-mail to access your photos. Additionally, I will also provide your images on a USB storage drive. I can also provide you with a slide show complete with audio on "YouTube" with a selection of images from your event.
Q: When and how do you require payment?
A: I require a non-refundable deposit of $250 at the time of booking. The balance for my services would be required upon completion of your wedding or photoshoot and can be made by e-transfer, PayPal or cash, whichever is convenient.
