Frequently Asked Questions

HAVE A QUESTION? THERE’S AN ANSWER!

If your question isn’t answered in this section, please reach out to me through the contact form below!

1. What is your pricing for weddings & engagements?2021-03-16T21:13:41-04:00

A la Carte per-hour wedding photography coverage begins at $300. Complete wedding day packages start at $3000. My pricing is flexible. Do you only need coverage for the ceremony? Perhaps just some portraits? We can start with 1 hour of coverage and work our way up to a full day of coverage. Engagement photo sessions are $300 and include up to 2 hours of photography coverage. There are no limits to locations or wardrobe changes! Please schedule a meeting with me so that we can go over the full pricelist information with you.

2. How can we reserve our date?2021-03-16T21:26:35-04:00

Please contact me first so we can determine availability. To book a date, my studio would need 1. a filled out photo agreement and 2. a retainer. I’ll send you instructions and links to do that, which can be done quickly online, super easy!

3. Do we get the high resolution files?2021-03-16T21:28:29-04:00

For every shoot, I provide the high resolution digital files via Dropbox, Google Drive, or Amazon Drive where they will be backed up in the cloud. If you can, please make a backup of the files when you receive them. Of course I also keep physical backups on my hard drives in case something happens. The great news is  that the files come without watermarks, symbols, or copyright text and are available to you for printing, posting on social media, or use for any personal project.

4. When is the wedding balance due?2021-03-16T21:29:54-04:00

After the retainer has been sent, the wedding date is reserved. Following that the wedding balance deadline is two weeks before the wedding date.

5. Do you have an assistant?2021-03-16T21:17:52-04:00

To be as inobtrusive as possible, I normally work without assistants. However, that could change if the client wishes to have a second photographer or a slideshow at the reception.

6. Have you photographed at the Notre Dame Basilica?2021-03-16T21:32:20-04:00

Yes. I’m very experienced at the Basilica and on campus. There are several rules at the Basilica and timing/punctuality is very important as there are multiple weddings at the Basilica during the weekends. So no worries! I can help guide, suggest ideas, and keep things moving along so everything is met according to the necessary timeframes. I have a lot of experience in this area!

7. Will Josef Samuel be the photographer?2021-03-16T21:18:17-04:00

Yes. I’ll be the primary photographer at your wedding :)

8. How many pictures do you take at weddings?2021-03-16T21:35:07-04:00

On a full day wedding event, I typically deliver 1000-1300 photos to the client. This is after narrowing it down and removing the blurry photos and blinkies. All photos are corrected for brightness, color temperature, cropping and straightening, sharpening, and other corrections. This process can take a week and up to two weeks.
