WHO? WHAT? WHEN? WHERE? WHY? HOW?
“How long have you been in business?”
I've been in business since 2008.
“What equipment do you use?”
Great question! Check out my Gear page to see the full breakdown.
“What if your camera or another piece of your equipment breaks during the shoot?”
Steps have been taken to ensure that you don’t have to worry about the technical aspect of the shoot. I have backup equipment in case something breaks.
“Is there a backup plan if you get sick?”
If I get sick and we are unable to reschedule the photo shoot or I can’t make your wedding/event, there are many other photographers and videographers that I trust to take over for me. These people are all skilled and reliable professionals that I have worked with many times in the past.
“Do you charge tax?”
Yes, sales tax will be added to final package. Rates can be determined HERE.
“How many events have you shot?”
I have photographed over 100 different events for more than 20 different companies.
“How many photographers/videographers will I need to hire?”
Great question! The location, attendance, and timing of your event all play a role in determining the staffing requirement for your event. We usually go over these details during our preliminary meeting.
“Who are your extra photographers/videographers?”
As someone that has been in the creative industry for more than seven years, I’ve developed a broad network with other professional creatives not just in Seattle, but also up and down the west coast as well as a few in New York City. They are all amazing at what they do, and are well versed in the pace and expectations of working events.
“Do you require a deposit? If so, how much and when is it due?”
I ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit to reserve us for your event, which will go towards your final balance. An additional 30% must be paid one week before your event, and the remaining 50% balance must be paid within 14 days of the end of your event.
“Do you need a shot list?”
Shot lists aren’t required, but they can be useful, especially if this is the first time I’ve worked with you.
“What time will you arrive?”
Typically I will arrive 30-60 minutes before you want me to. This allows me time to get my gear set up, introduce myself to other event operations members, and walk through the venue.
“How will you and your assistants be dressed?”
My primary attire is neutral colored slacks, collared shirts and suspenders. The look will be professional. Any extra staff will be dressed similarly.
