Frequently Asked Questions

I understand that hiring someone to capture the most special momories of your life is important. For that reason, I compiled the most common questions I get as well as my answers to them. I hope they will be helpful in making your decision.
  1. Do I get all the images you shoot?
    No, you won’t. I strive to deliver you the best images by eliminating the missed focus shots, duplicate and blurry images, unflattering facial expressions and test shots.
  2. When will I get the fully edited images?
    The amount of time varies but generally, a portrait mini-session may take 1-2 weeks and a wedding/event may take 3 to 4 weeks to be processed. You are always welcome to ask more information about the processing time.
  3. Do you share raw files?
    Unfortunately, I don't send raw files to clients but I assure you that I spend time to deliver fully edited images, meaning retouched, brightness adjusted and sharpened to suit my photography style. I short, I will do that hard work for you. If you are not satisfied with my edit, I will be happy to make some changes to make you happy.
  4. What is your photography style?
    I love using natural light, unique perspectives, angles, compositions and artistic post-production refining to bring out my clients personalities and beauty while keeping the family’s memory sweet and telling their wedding story. To see examples of the quality and style of the images I took, please visit my Portfolio as well as my Blog.
  5. How many images do you typically deliver from an engagement session? From a wedding? From a Lifestyle mini-session?
    I typically deliver anywhere from 60-70 images per 3-hour engagement shoot; 100-175 for a wedding; and 20-30 images per hour portrait session. Keep in mind these numbers may increase or decrease depending on the flow of the day and the number of events/activities needing to be captured.
  6. Do you publish every portraits and wedding you do? What if I don’t want them posted anywhere else?
    I generally publish select images as photography proof in my social media handles and on this website with the permission from my clients. However, if my client ask me to not post anything, I respect that and do as they say.
  7. Why am I charged an additional fee for distant shooting location?
    My ideal shooting location is Columbia Maryland or other areas nearby. Unfortunately, I'll have to charge an additional fee for the gas and other fees I may incur from using other shooting location.
  8. How can I book a date for a portrait mini-session or wedding?
    You are welcome to message me to ask about my available date. I'll send you and invoice for the retainer's fee. I require a 50% payment to block a date and time for the session or event.
