Frequently asked 

1.  How long have you been a photographer?

I am the new guy in town, I've been shooting for many years and enjoy all forms of photography.  I've also been working with established wedding photographers, I do have experience shooting weddings and am comfortable shooting independently and will capture all of the key moments.

7.  How long will it take to get my images in front of me? 

I pride myself on a quick turnaround.  I can usually have a wedding edited and returned to you within two weeks, at the most three week.  My job is not done until you have received your images.  

Side note:  I do keep all of the photos for an extended period of time if lost in the future.

8.  How far will you travel for weddings?  

Wilmington is home for me, however, I will travel at no additional charge as far as North Myrtle Beach to New Bern.  Any further, I will have to add a very nominal fee to cover travel expenses.  I will also travel further outside of the state and country at your request. These fees can be negotiated at time of inquiry.   I am fair and strive to be accommodating.

10.  How many weddings do you shoot in a weekend? 

I will only be shooting one wedding per day.  This allows me to show up to the venue rain or shine with ample time to shoot your wedding.  I will not have a time frame to stick to and can be flexible.
