Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are based in Orange County, CA and serve the greater Los Angeles area and San Diego. But we LOVE to travel and will go anywhere you'll take us!
Q: Do you offer consultations?
A: Absolutely! I suggest meeting all your potential vendors to make sure you both “vibe” and are a good match. This can be in person or via Skype. I like to meet for coffee and discuss the big day in person when feasible.
Q: What is your style?
A: I’d say our style is “light and airy”. I love natural light and warm, crisp colors.
Q: What are your rates?
A: I can provide my full pricing upon request and would be happy to to customize a package to fit your needs.
Q: Do you photograph LGBT weddings?
A: I would be honored to photograph your wedding regardless of sexual orientation, race or religion.
Q: Do you recommend two photographers?
A: If possible, I would definitely suggest 2 photographers as that would ensure more coverage, more images and different angles. For example you could get images of both the bride and the groom getting ready, of the groom's expression as the bride walks down the aisle, the bride’s expression as she walks towards him, additional images of the guests/family members, cocktail hour coverage, additional detail shots, double coverage during the reception, etc. For more intimate weddings with fewer guests, one photographer is enough.
Q: Who is your second photographer?
A: My husband, business partner and fellow photographer Victor shoots most weddings with me. Half of the work on this website is by him. If for some reason he is unavailable, another associate photographer with a similar style will second shoot with me.
Q: How do I reserve you?
A: Dates are reserved once I receive your signed agreement and retainer. I take a $500 retainer to hold any dates. Keep in mind that we only take a certain number of weddings per year, so book early to ensure your date.
Q: How soon should I book?
A: We take bookings up to 18 months from the date of the event.
Q: What equipment to you use and do you have backups?
A: We shoot strictly with high-end Canon cameras, lenses and flashes. We carry backup gear with us at all times.
Q: How many images can I expect to receive?
A: You can expect to receive between 50-100 images per hour of coverage. An average 8 hour wedding usually receives between 600-800 final, edited images.
Q: Do I get the photos?
A: Absolutely. Your images are included in the pricing. I pick out all the best images carefully, edit them and organize them to tell a story. I then upload the images to a private online gallery for you.
Q: How do you deliver images?
A: Via a private online gallery. You get a gallery and password to view and download the images straight to your computer. Some packages include a keepsake USB drive loaded with the images as well.
