FAQ

What is the best time of the year for photos?

The most ideal months are October/November and February/March. Here on the Emerald Coast the angle of the setting sun looks best between October and March, and the beaches are usually less crowded during those months. There’s nothing wrong with December or January, but it does get cold even here in sunny Florida.

 

How many images will I receive on my disc?

There is no easy answer for this question. It depends on the location, weather, and regarding weddings, the number of guests and if the bride and groom have to leave to go to a reception. Typically a disc has 30+ images per 30 minutes of shooting. Every photo I take does NOT make it onto the disc. There will always be shots that are unacceptable for a variety of reasons be it a poorly timed blink or a technical glitch.

 

How long will my online gallery be available for my family & friends to see?

At the moment photos will be left up indefinitely, but a minimum of 90 days.

 

What kind of equipment do you shoot with?

I use only Canon equipment. It is not ‘better’ than Nikon, but merely my preference. I shoot fully digital and no longer use film cameras.

 

Can you provide references?

I have personally worked with everyone on my links page and they will be happy to give reference. Past clients may have left contact info in the Guestbook.

 

Will you be the photographer to actually shoot my event or will it be a staff member?

Barring any emergencies I will be there. If for some reason I am unable to make it I will give you the choice of refund or reschedule.

 

Do you do retouching?

I do minor retouching to all photos to give clients the best possible result. Additional modifications like removing blemishes, unwanted photo subjects and special effects can be done for a per-situation fee.

 

Can you provide black & white prints and how much extra does it cost?

I can provide black and white (as well as sepia tinted) photos at no additional cost if requested.

 

Can you do color tinted black & whites?

I can provide tinted photos for a small additional cost for the final prints.

 

Can I order canvas enlargements?

Canvas prints are available from my online ordering as well as keepsake items such as T-shirts, mousepads, tote bags and other items.

 

How far will you travel?

I currently will only travel from Pensacola Beach to Sandestin, including Gulf Breeze, Navarre, Navarre Beach, Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island and Destin.

 

What happens if it rains ?

First of all don’t watch the Weather Channel as it will lead you to think it rains here like the Amazon basin. Most rainshowers pass within an hour and often within 15 minutes. If we shoot with a cloudy sky or postpone to a later date will be your decision.

 

Is it possible to arrange the photo shoot prior to my ceremony rather than afterwards?

That is no problem at all!
