1. What’s your photography style and approach?

My photography style is a beautiful mixture of both photojournalism and traditional. I strive to capture spontaneous and candid moments in a non-obtrusive way, showing the real you, but I also love to take fun and stylishly posed photographs. Capturing the details are a bit of a weakness for me too. I edit each photo with a natural finish with true to life colors and love how a black and white finish can really bring out details and emotions. My approach at weddings during the ceremony and reception is like a "fly on the wall." I capture all the emotions and events of the day as they unfold, without being in the way. I provide coaching and direction, along with the help of an assistant or second shooter during family and bridal party formals when needed as well! 

2. How do I book you?

Please submit your photography request on our contact page. A signed agreement and a retainer is required to book your session. For weddings, the retainer is $500 and interest free payment plans are available to split remaining balance into manageable payments.

For portraits, showers or parties, retainer is 50% of your total. I accept PayPal, Square, all Major Credit Cards, Checks, Money Orders and Cash.

3.  How many images do we receive?

On average, we capture between 75-100 photos per hour of coverage, and deliver 30-50 photos per hour.
Images determined to be substandard or duplicated will be edited out.

All images will be edited for correct color tone, straightened, sharpened and prepared
 in high resolution JPEG for both web and print. 

4. Can we request a list of shots or visual images for you to take?

Yes, this helps me to get a feel for your style, and for weddings, I will provide you with a general formal shot list that can be edited to suit your needs and helps make the formals session go smooth and fast, allowing you more time for bride and groom formals, cocktail hour or some down time to relax before your reception! I do not work off any other shots lists, as I capture what is going on in the moment.

5. Are you our actual photographer? Is a second shooter available?

I am your actual photographer, unless we have two weddings on the same day and then Olivia would photograph your wedding. Before booking, you will know who is your photographer. I would still take care of you before and after your wedding as planned. 

6. Do you have back up equipment in case something fails?

Yes, I carry 2 Canon bodies, 8 lenses, 2 external flash units, and many extra memory cards and batteries.

7. What sets you apart and makes you different from other photographers?

I have an eye for detail and I really love capturing spontaneous and candid moments and turning them into lifetime memories. I love to work closely with my clients to get to know them, especially my wedding couples and I send multiple emails throughout our relationship, always keeping in touch and sending helpful information along as we go. If you choose All Occasion Photography, you get affordable prices and high quality images in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

8. How do you archive my images?

I archive all sessions for at least 5 years online via SmugMug and on 2 external hard drives.

9. How long does it take to get my final images and are they watermarked?

I guarantee all clients that within 8 weeks from our project, you will receive your final images in high-res JPEG format and with no watermarking.

10. Can I print my photographs somewhere else?

Yes, you can print your photographs anywhere you'd like and for added convenience, you can visit my Gallery after your session to purchase prints, wall art and photo gifts via SmugMug if you choose to do so.

11. What special effects can I get?

All of your images will be in full color and may have a duplicate copy in black and white or in Selective Color for example, the bride's bouquet in color and the rest of the image in black & white. Airbushing/Retouching of photos may be done for an additional cost of $15 per photo.

12. What is your cancellation policy? 

If for any reason the Client cancels their contract before the event date, the Photographer will keep the retainer, and any remaining balance paid will be refunded to the client within 60 days. If for any reason the event date needs to be rescheduled, we will do everything in our power to work with your new date at no extra charge. If new date conflicts with date already booked, we apologize for the inconvenience but must honor bookings on a first come, first serve basis. If we are unable to re-book your event, due to conflict, retainer is non-refundable.
