How long have you been shooting? Professionally since 2004, 300+ weddings!
What is your style? A mix of creative portraiture and photojournalism. I am constantly looking for a unique perspective, interesting angles and different backgrounds so that all of your photos are fantastic! My style is modern, yet inviting. I don't use trendy filters or actions since I believe you should have crisp, timeless images that won't look dated in a few years, but still feel fresh no matter what timeframe you look at them. It's important to me to capture your personalities and interaction as a couple and the moments that unfold on your day in the most creative way possible.
What equipment do you use? Canon pro gear with lights and backups
How many images do you take in a day? Around 500-1000 fabulous images, depending on hours of coverage in your package.
When are the pictures done? The edited images are completed 7-11 weeks after your wedding. For portraits, the images are ready 3-5 weeks after your session.
We never look good in pictures! Believe me, I have heard this same story from every couple. You are not the only Chandlers in this world! All the people on my website are normal everyday people, it's my job to make you guys look good, feel relaxed and be comfortable. You'll warm up to me and my camera in 5 minutes, and have lots of fun! The single piece of best advice I can give to you after a decade of shooting is to relax and enjoy your day. Remember to smile, and know that you look great!
How much photographic time do you need during my wedding formals? I like to have 3 hours: 30 mins for your family photos, 45 mins for your bridal party, 75 mins for the two of you, and 30 mins for travel time.
What if it rains? I like rain, makes for some great shots! We will shoot both outdoors and indoors if you are comfortable with that.
What's the process from start to finish? Use the contact form to ask about pricing, products and availability. We can either set up a meeting or you can give me a call. After we have talked about your wedding, you can pay the 50% retainer and I'll send you a contract online. After that, I'm booked for your day :) We will arrange a meeting 2 weeks before your wedding, where the 50% final balance is due and we go over your itinerary. Then I photograph your wedding, and after 7-11 weeks, your images are ready for you! If you have an album in your package, I will design your layout and when you have given me your final ok, the album is sent to print and once it arrives back, you can pick it up.
What form of payment do you take? Electronic money transfer is preferred, cash, cheque, paypal or credit card are accepted.
