Have you worked with videographers before?
Yes! I have worked with videographers from kids with iPhones to multiple professional videographers with lighting and sound equipment. I enjoy spending time with other creatives at weddings, and I often get great ideas from them.
Do you use professional camera equipment?
Yes! I use professional Nikon cameras, flashes and lenses. I also love my Tamron equipment for getting great up close shots without interrupting the subject. I also use professional studio lights, memory cards, and more.
Should I do a first look instead of waiting to see my bride/groom?
Yes! It is your decision as to when you see each other. From my vast wedding photography experience, couples who do a special first look are more relaxed and get to spend more time together on their wedding day.
Do you scout wedding venues before the wedding?
No! I have been to almost all Dayton and Cincinnati wedding venues and have photographed more than 160 weddings. I have learned to anticipate every setting and circumstance and enjoy the on-the-job creativity. It keeps me fresh. I do scout locations on Google Maps and Pinterest when I haven't been to a wedding or reception venue. As I always arrive early to your wedding day location, I have extra time to look around for any other ideas.
Will the group photographs be as boring and time-consuming as I think?
No! I work quickly and am prepared with high-quality equipment. I try to infuse humor into these photos and will do my best to shoot quickly. The big slow down comes when we have to wait for subjects to arrive. People that will be photographed should be instructed to be at the photo location early and to be ready.
