Sessions & Booking
What kind of sessions do you offer and who do you work with?
I specialize in events, weddings and couples/lifestyle sessions. I love photographing people from all walks of life and do not discriminate by race, gender, religion, ability or sexual orientation.
Where do you shoot?
I am based in New York City and service all boroughs and Long Island. I can be available to travel--just send me a message!
What is your booking process? Will there be a contract?
Yes, all sessions include full prep and a contract. For more details, check out the 'The Experience' page in the About section!
Do you work with tourists?
Yes!! I love photographing visitors to NYC and have worked with clients from California to Norway. All traveling clients receive my special guide to the city as well!
How long are your sessions?
Portrait sessions start around one hour, events start at two hours and weddings begin around 4 hours.
What kind of gear do you use?
I shoot everything on a Canon 5D Mark III, using either a 50 mm prime or 24 to 70 mm zoom lens.
What if it rains or snows?
We all know that Mother Nature has a mind of her own. I always check in a few days before our shoot, and if it seems like weather will prohibit us from shooting I will work with you to reschedule or make an indoor plan.
Can I have my shoot in multiple locations?
Usually, yes! This depends on the package you choose and will be discussed and decided upon prior to shooting.
Do you have insurance?
Sure do! I can provide a Certificate of Insurance (COI) if requested.
Editing & Image Delivery
When and how will I receive my photos?
I edit all my photos myself, as I want to make sure they are just right. Galleries are delivered in a private online gallery and typically take 1-3 weeks for a event/lifestyle session and 4-6 weeks for a wedding. Sneak peeks are included in every session, delivered within 24-48 hours.
How many photos will I receive?
This will depend on the package you choose but I personally can never have too many photos, and want you to experience the same! After your shoot, I will go through and choose the best images, removing any blurry or unflattering shots and edit the best. Typically you'll receive a minimum of 50-75 images per hour of shooting.
Will you send me the full album and/or raw images?
I can totally relate to all the reasons you'd want the full album and raw images, however I unfortunately am unable to share unedited images, and the reason is pretty simple! When you book with me, you book my style as well, and I want to make sure you have the best final product. The unedited photos are just that--not quite final. I promise you will get a ton of great images and not want for anything! :)
Do I have to order prints?
Not at all! I personally don't provide prints in my packages, but can recommend places to print. You will get a print release from me with your package that will give you permission to print wherever you like!
Do you do body modifications?
I want your images to look and feel 100% like you, so I do not edit with any body modifications. I understand how it can be hard to look at yourself in an image and not immediately see the negative - I do it too! - but I like to help people see that their beauty comes from a multitude of sources, and to edit any part of you would reduce the authenticity and amazingness that is you! I can edit blemishes and pimples that are not your everyday look.
