Guest Signature Album

What is a custom guest book you ask? Using the photos from your engagement session, I put together a 20 page hard cover 9″ x 12″ book. The pages are made from thick card stock so they are easy to write on.  In the front is a welcome message to your guests. Inside are pages that the guests write on using any normal ball point pen. The look, color and feel of the book is similar to a school year book. It just draws people to leave upon it’s pages, many happy wishes.  After the wedding it becomes a keepsake of the day just as precious as the wedding albums.

Below are the dates that are already booked. In order to book your date a $800 retainer and signed contract are required. Let’s set up a time to talk about your wedding day plans!

Capturing the details of your day with style is my passion. I approach wedding photography with my own combination of photojournalistic and traditional portraiture styles. Sometimes special moments are best captured as they happen. Other times a little posing and positioning help bring an image to life. I understand the importance of creating a beautiful photographic record of your day from start to finish. Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime special event. Call me today to set up an appointment and see my work for yourself.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much experience do you have?
I have enjoyed both video and still photography from childhood. I began my professional photography career doing commercial product photography in 1998. This lead to working as a photojournalist covering off-road racing events all over the western US. It was this combination of product and action photography that taught me the importance of proper camera setup and quick response to action as it happens. I photographed my first wedding in September 1999 at the old mining town in Panamint City. More weddings followed in the years to come as I shifted my priories to focus on weddings. As of October 2016 I have photographed more than 300 weddings.

Do you carry liability insurance?
Yes, I carry full liability insurance. Some wedding facilities require that each vendor carry liability insurance. If your facility requires vendor insurance, you don’t want to find out at the last minute that one of your vendors does not carry the needed insurance and thus will not be allowed to perform their work at the wedding.

Do you include images?
Yes, all of my wedding packages include a flash drive of finished ready-to-print images. With full day coverage I normally provide 500+ images. All images provided are adjusted for exposure, color balance and detail. Some images also receive additional special effects. The images are full size and can be printed up to 20″ X 30″. A copyright print release for personal use is included.

What is required to book?
Dates are filled on a first come, first served basis. To book your date, a signed contract and  $900 retainer are required. Final payment is due two weeks prior to the wedding day.

How long before I can see my images?
Your images will be available to see on-line within one month. Shortly after the images are finished your album layout will be done and you will receive a copy via email. You and your family can review the album layout and make adjustments including adding or removing pages and/or photos.  The next step is to print the final wedding albums. This typically takes from 2 to 8 weeks once the album design is approved.

How far do you travel?
I cover the central California area from Bakersfield to Merced. Outside of this area there is a travel and accommodation fee.  Please contact me for a quote.

What equipment do you use?
I shoot using professional level Canon cameras, lenses and lighting equipment. Using the best equipment available allows me to capture those special moments in any lighting situation. Be it a dark church with no flash allowed or a outside nighttime reception, be assured that I will have no problem capturing your special moments.

Do you have backup equipment?
Yes, In additional to my primary cameras I always bring backup equipment to guard against failures.  This allows me to continue to cover your special day no matter what happens. This includes spare lenses, additional batteries, extra memory cards and flash units. I bring enough batteries and memory cards at each event to shoot two back-to-back weddings.
