What's your price range?
Wedding packages range from $2,300 to $5,450. However, no two weddings are the same. Please feel free to contact me with the details of your wedding and I’ll be happy to give you an estimate based on your exact needs!
Do you work with a second photographer?
I do sometimes work with a second shooter, depending on the wedding and depending on the client. It is always an option. Though, I do really enjoy shooting weddings solo. I have been working solo for five years and I’ve found a fantastic groove. I am in constant observation mode and I follow all of the action. I am rarely still when shooting a wedding and I know exactly how important it is to you that I capture all of the special moments… It’s just as important to me!
Do you provide videography services?
I am a strictly a photographer and do not offer videography services. However, I have some names for you if you need a hand in that department!
Do you edit all of the photographs? How many pictures will we receive?
I edit all of the great shots from the day. For a full wedding, this is typically between 350-400 images, however, there is no magic number.
What is your deposit to hold a date?
The deposit is $500 to hold your wedding date. This will go towards the total photography investment and is non-refundable.
How far will you travel?
I absolutely love traveling and would be ecstatic to travel and shoot your wedding! Of course, this is something that varies, so travel fees are on a case by case basis. Please feel free to contact me with questions relating to travel.
How long does it take before we receive our products and photographs?
I will have your Sneak Peek social media album ready to post within two weeks of your wedding. The remainder of the images will be delivered within about a month and a half. If you would like to purchase any prints, products, books or albums, the design process will take a little time (that will vary based on what you are purchasing) and you will be asked to approve any items ordered. Once the order has been made, it will take about a week to receive from the lab and will deliver as soon as I receive it.
What if we don’t have or want our photos posted on social media? Can we still have a Sneak Peek album?
Of course! I know not everyone is big on social media. I do have a gallery option that will allow you to beautifully share your special day with your friends and family. However, the contract states that any photography of your wedding may be used for advertising/commercial purposes by the photographer, so I may share some of the photos on my various platforms, such as website, blog, advertising materials, etc..
Will we receive all of the photographs digitally?
You sure will! Depending on the length of day, the number of photographs will vary, however, I edit all of the best shots. Those will be delivered to you on a USB for printing at the 5x7 size and you will be given a print release, giving you permission to have them printed at that size.
Can we order large prints form the digitals?
The digitals that you receive are suitable for 5x7 sized prints. Any larger prints may be purchased through me, as I work with a professional photography lab and can guarantee the quality of the large prints and products that my clients are hanging on their walls and sharing with the world. As professionals, we have high standards for the way our art is displayed. I want to ensure only the best quality prints to my clients.
How does the album design process work?
It’s always an honor to design an album for my couples! They albums are beautifully made and of top of the line quality to be an heirloom in your family for lifetimes. While you, of course, have ultimate say as to what goes in your album and how it’s designed, I have a great eye for putting together a piece of art that will showcase your wedding in a complete, storybook way, from start to finish. I would love to show you what I come up with and then tweak it in the later stages of the process. Only after your final review and 100% approval will we place your album order.
I don’t photograph well and am super awkward, will you help?
Believe me, I’ve been there and I know how you feel! As your photographer, it is my job to not only help you look and feel your best but to also be sure you are completely confident in that! I will help as much or as little as needed to guarantee you are feeling great throughout your wedding day. I often work in situations where my models have never stepped in front of a camera and I have five minutes to make them look like runway stars. I got you!
Do you offer engagement sessions?
I definitely offer engagement sessions. In fact, I would prefer to shoot your engagement session AND your wedding! Taking your engagement photos allows me time to familiarize myself with the cute nuances and quarks of your relationship. It allows me true insight to your connection with each other through a lens view, before your wedding day, which will put you more at ease and comfortable on your wedding day. This also creates a more cohesive storyline of your engagement and wedding from start to finish. Not to mention, it gives us more time to be fun and creative with each other, which is always a plus!
You’re the photographer for us, we need you to shoot our wedding! When should we book you?
ASAP! The sooner the better. There are always couples that get stuff done ahead of the crowd and book far in advanced. If you have your date set in stone and you know you definitely want me to shoot your wedding, book now! The only way to guarantee the date is to get the deposit down.
Do I have to provide you a meal at my wedding?
While a meal is not required in the contract, it sure is nice and very appreciated. As you’ll see, I run around constantly at a wedding, never missing a beat. Usually, by the time the meal is served, I have been with you for many hours of the day and just like you, will be very hungry. A nice hot meal is definitely more substantial than the granola bar that’s been in my bag since 2012… Also, eating while you eat is perfect timing, as photos of the newlyweds stuffing face isn’t typically requested! I always keep hawk eye vision and will be watching, should photo ops happen during my quick bite.
I really want you to stay till the very end of my wedding, will you?
I stay for as long as you want me! We’ll chat in depth about the details of timing to be sure everything lines up with your chosen package. If for some reason, the timing falls out of sync somewhere along the line and you need me to stay longer than expected, I offer hourly rates and we’ll definitely be able to work that out for you.
What will you wear to shoot?
Always black! It is my job to remain as “invisible” as possible and wearing all black will help you and your guests dismiss me as quickly as you see me to get back to the event at hand.
Do you reallyyyy like to shoot weddings?
Truly and honestly, weddings are my favorite! The wedding vibe is something you can’t find just anywhere. When else is a group of friends and family so vibrant and excited to be around one another? When else would I get to capture a couple completely head over heels and literally overflowing with joy and love for one another? There’s really nothing quite like a wedding… It’s an honor to be a part of and to be trusted with such a responsibility. I absolutely love serving people and contributing everything I can to make my client’s wedding day spectacular. I will say that I’m also really great at guiding a group and using my big mouth to keep everyone on track. Of course, joking and being my bubbly self all along the way to keep smiles on everyone’s faces. This is a part of my personality that I love to share and use in positive ways for you on your wedding day. I wouldn’t shoot weddings if I didn’t love them!
Do you shoot other types of photography such as headshots, portraits, newborns, etc.?
I do shoot other types of photography and would be happy to chat with you about the my package options and the details of what you are looking for. Just give me a call!
Why "Silver Moon Custom Art" rather than "Silver Moon Photography"?
While the main focus of my business is wedding photography, I have a passion for creating art in many forms. I am a painter and very much enjoy doing doing murals as well as other types of commissioned art pieces. If you have some ideas for artwork that you'd like designed, please get in touch and lets make it happen!
Here are a couple time lapse videos of murals.
