+ How is your name pronounced?
Like Montana, without the "Mon".
+ Where are you located?
Everywhere and anywhere! Travel is a huge priority in my life, and I’ll gladly fly or drive to wherever you may be! I absolutely love to meet new people, explore new places. All that said, when I’m not out adventuring, home is Howell, Michigan, but I take photos all over the metro area and the rest of the state.
P.S. Check out my Bucket List page to learn how to get me to photograph your wedding for FREE!
+ What's the next step? How do we book you?
Send me a message on my contact page. I'll get in touch with you as soon as I can, and we can set up a time to meet up and chat about your special day! I want to hear all about your personal love story and the images you want captured. If you feel confident I'm the wedding photographer for you, I require a $500 deposit towards your wedding package total, and a signed contract. I send an invoice by email that allows you to pay online or by check/cash, and a digital contract you can sign and print out.
For all other sessions, full payment is due up front.
+ Can I have all the unedited photos?
Sorry, but no. I never give out the unedited pictures. They aren't representative of my final work as a photographer!
+ Can I post the photos on social media?
Yes! Please do! I love when people share their images with friends and family! However, if you do share them, make sure to give me photo credit and include a link back to my photography page. And please don't apply any additional filters to alter or change them in any way.
+ Should we have a first look?
First looks are magical. They give you an intimate moment together before the ceremony, and give me the opportunity to capture raw feelings between the two of you. Having a first look allows us more time to schedule portraits, and can also calm pre-wedding jitters. It's a win/win all around.
+ Do you provide a print release?
Absolutely. You can print your photos wherever you'd like and you can share them anywhere your heart desires (facebook, instagram, twitter, etc).
+ What camera equipment do you use?
A 5D Mark III along with a few of my trusty lenses. My favorites being my Sigma Art 35mm or Canon 50mm 1.4L. Also Canon Speedlight for all those crazy dance photos.
+ What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Such a tough question but chocolate peanut butter is my ultimate fav.
