Frequently Asked Questions About Our Photography Services
Here are some questions you would want to know and ask before hiring the right photographer!
A: Having a well-planned timeline is the key to having a successful event. Leading up to your wedding day we will be in communication and will build a well structure timeline that will match ceremony and venue times.
A: My team and I use Canon DSLR Camera Bodies with Canon L series prime and zoom lenses. We use off camera flashes, and Profoto strobes when needed.
A: We shoot large Raw files and convert the files to high-Res jpeg. We do not provide the unretouched Raw files. As they are too large and often require special software to even see them.
A: We don’t have a set number of images per event, we believe in quality over quantity. We love capturing as many details and highlights of your day. We shoot in Hi RAW files and deliver high-resolution JPGs at the final production. These will be memories that you will cherish forever.
A: We get this question a lot and are happy to answer. We shoot at a lot of venues across the Inland Empire, Orange County and LA County. If we have not worked at your venue before, we will do our research and schedule a walk-through with your venue. The goal is to get familiarized with the venue before your big day. We will scout locations inside and around your venue, in order to find the best light and settings.
A: I pride myself on offering the very best for all of my clients. All of the photography packages I offer will be photographed by me and my team.
A: Production times vary, but usually within 4-6 weeks from the time you select your images and approve the album design
A: We recommend that you select a maximum of 100 photos. I will organize the entire layout of your selected photos and will place them in strategically in chronological order.

A: I get this concern 90% of the time, and I really do help you feel and look your best in front of my camera. I love to help guide you and warm you up just by having a normal conversation about something to relate to your personalities, and get your mind off of the worries of how you will look and help you act natural like how you two would be with each other if no one else is around.
A: No, we do not. I go through all images 1 by 1 and eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery.
A: Of course you may! We understand all photographers post their best shots from each wedding on their websites so it’s hard to determine how well he or she will perform on the wedding day. I highly recommend that you ask to the photographer you are considering to show you full events from start to finish. When we schedule a meeting you can choose from any of my weddings and view it from start to finish. pride myself on the consistency of our work
A: Post-production for engagement sessions are completed 1-2 weeks after the date of the photo shoot.
A: We encourage you to do your engagement session as soon as possible. The latest we suggest is at least 6 weeks prior to the wedding date due to the time necessary to design and order your guest book.
A: We prefer to shoot engagements on weekdays because locations are typically less crowded. We usually do not shoot engagement sessions on weekends because that’s when we are usually shooting weddings. If you can only do your engagement session on a weekend we can tentatively schedule your shoot on a weekend, however, if we book a wedding for that weekend we would have to reschedule your engagement session.
A: All dates are reserved once we receive your signed contract and a $500 deposit.
A: Yes. The retail adjustment fee for all credit card transactions is 3% of the charged amount.
