Wedding Photography - Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What makes you different from other photographers?
A: I’m not here to simply take a static photograph and document an event in your life. I know that there is a lot more behind every occasion and every person who shares in it.

Q: How do you work with your clients?
A: I don’t believe in “directing” my clients. Instead, before your event or before our photography session, I find out what my clients want to capture in their photos – what story they want to tell – and offer different suggestions about how we can most beautifully do this. Our time together is a creative collaboration; I really want you to be part of the creative process. I believe this allows us to have fun and you to relax and enjoy your events or photo session without pressure.

Q: How do you price your services? Do you offer a set wedding photography package?
A: I prefer to work with you to create a specially designed package based on your needs and your goals, and we price these individualized packages based on your selections and needs. All of our services are highly customized; we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.

Q: How much time will you spend with me?
A: I commit to very few clients per year, which allows me to focus on you and create a unique photographic keepsake of this portion of your life’s journey. I believe in working with clients and spending time together before their event or photo session so that I can learn about you and the people in your life. This is what helps me capture the emotions and interactions that comprise your story.

Q: Do you only work with clients in the San Francisco Bay Area?
A: My home base is the San Francisco Bay Area, and I frequently work with wedding and portrait clients in San Francisco, Monterey/Carmel Peninsula and Napa Valley but I am available to travel to any destination throughout the world depending on my client’s needs.

Q: How can I find out more?
A: Call our studio at 408. 679. 9649 or e-mail me. Our studio manager will learn about your needs and wishes and determine if we’ll be a good fit.
