1. Are you available?
If you like what you see and you’re interested in a particular date, you can check your date on my booking calendar and contact me directly. I will confirm my availability status, and we’ll set up a meeting over phone, video chat, or in person in San Francisco. If everything works out, you’ll be able to submit a contract and retainer fee to hire me and reserve your date.
Weddings are often booked six months to a year in advance. Portrait sessions are typically scheduled during the weekdays one to four weeks in advance.
Don’t forget: I love to travel. So even if you are tucked away in a different corner of the world, I’d be more than happy to talk to you about heading over for your event. (Hawaii or Australia, anyone?)
2. What equipment do you use?
I typically shoot with the following:
Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II
35mm/1.4, 50mm/1.2, 85mm/1.8, 100mm/2.8 macro, Canon 70-200mm/2.8 IS
Canon 580EX II, 430EXII, Lumo Pro manual flash, Pocket Wizards, reflectors, video lights
Used less frequently:
Canon EOS 3 35mm film body
16-35mm/2.8 IS, Canon 135mm/2.0
3. Can I be your assistant or second shooter?
Quite possibly! I do work with assistants and second shooters on many of my shoots. I offer an annual internship program, but the 2013 position has been filled.
4. Can you recommend a florist/makeup artist/etc.?
I feature preferred vendors periodically in my spotlight series. Visit the profiles to view some of my favorites of the wedding industry!
5. Can I ask you something else?
Sure, contact me!
