Frequently Asked Questions
What is your experience with photographing weddings?

I have photographed more weddings than I can venture to count. I have been photographing weddings since 2008. The weddings I photograph are diverse - from City Hall weddings where I've been the only witness, to 300+ person affairs. I have photographed informal beach weddings to traditional church weddings. I've documented Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, non-denominational Christian, and non-religious ceremonies. I would love to learn all about the customs and events at your wedding.

As a word-of-mouth business, I have little-to-no paid advertising or paid listings with venues. It's very important that I have trusting relationships and happy clients who will recommend me to their friends and family. If you're interested in what past wedding couples are saying, check out the reviews page.
How far in advance should I book you?

For weddings most couples book me about 6-12 months before their wedding. I book some weddings as far as 18 months in advance, and occasionally as little as 2 or 3 months ahead. If I'm already booked for your wedding date then I'm happy to recommend another photographer. For portrait sessions most people book as little as 1-2 weeks ahead of time.
How much will it cost to hire you?

I offer packages and can also customize services to your specifications. Contact me for details on packages and a full menu of my photography services.
How can I book you?

To book me, please fill out a contact form. I can then tell you if I'm available for a particular date and send you additional information on packages and pricing. *A retainer and signed contract is required to reserve your wedding date. I am available to meet with clients by appointment only. I am also available by phone or email at any given time unless I am in session.
Where are you located?

I am based in Muncie, but photograph weddings all over Indiana, Ohio, and beyond.
We like your photography style but would like to have traditional portraits as well. Is this something you do?

Yes, I take traditional family portraits at nearly every wedding I photograph. Traditional family portraits are an important part of your wedding record.
When will our photos be ready?

Your digital proofs will be ready in an online gallery within 2-3 weeks of your session. Sometimes earlier depending on how busy I am.
Do you offer a second photographer?

About 90 percent of the weddings featured on this website were photographed by me working alone. So that I can capture authentic and candid images like the ones you've seen in my portfolio, it's important that I have minimal photographer/outsider presence at your wedding. However, I do offer second photographers for weddings that require one. Once I understand your wedding and photography requirements, I can recommend whether a second photographer would be beneficial or necessary for your wedding.
What kind of cameras do you use?

I use professional-level Nikon digital cameras and lenses with backups.
