Wedding Photography FAQs

Is your wedding package for a full day of photos including bride preparation, ceremony, wedding party photos, and reception?

My wedding packages start at 1.5 hours of coverage—ideal for small beach weddings. I offer photography packages up to 8 hours (a full day of coverage), including bride’s “getting ready” shots, ceremony, couples portraits, group shots and reception photos.

Do you retouch the photos?

My packages include a Digital Download of all images taken. I do basic edits on all images like adjust the color tones, correct exposure, and horizon line correction. Special photoshop requests or extensive editing; such as, remove objects from background, sliming, blemish removal, tan-line removal, cropping, and black and white conversion is charged $10 extra, per file. The first 10 files are complimentary.

Do you charge a travel fee?

I do not charge a travel fee for the island of Maui. However, charges apply for coverage in Maui County’s surrounding populated islands, including: Lanai and Molokai. Inquire for more details.

Do you work alone? Or will you bring an assistant?

Yes, I prefer to work alone. Since most of my weddings are intimate and small groups(50 people or less)I want to keep things as low key as possible. For large weddings or weddings with a lot of details, you may request to add a second photographer for $150 per hour.

How many images can I expect to see from my wedding?

On average, I shoot 50-75 images per hour.

Can you tell me about your style as a wedding photographer?  What’s important?

My style as a photographer is low key and relaxed. I’d say my strength as a photographer is capturing the essence of your day with truthful images. During a shoot, I stay in the moment with my couples while also giving them space to be themselves. Still, each wedding I photograph is completely different from the next because each of my couples is unique. I shoot based on feeling and I don’t always follow the “technical” rules of photography—in my opinion, a great photo is an essence and feeling captured.

How long does it take to see the proofs after a photo shoot? When do we get the photos?

Proofs are posted to an online (private) proofing gallery within two-fours weeks (depending on season) of your wedding. Your photos are delivered via Digital Download. Your Digital Download will include all original Hi-res photos taken as well.

What is the deposit amount to book?

My wedding packages consist of three payments:

  1. A 25% non-refundable reservation fee is due to book your wedding date. This is considered a retainer fee, not a deposit.
  2. 50% of the your balance is due 90 days prior to your wedding date— also non-refundable.
  3. The remaining balance is due on the day of your event.

What is your cancellation policy?

In the event of a cancellation, any payment already submitted will be applied to any future booking with me.
