Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How much?

  Every wedding package is customized to meet each couple’s specific needs and requirements. That said, most of my couples spend between $2500 and $3500 for their wedding photography package. I also offer half-day rates and discounts for off-season and weekday weddings. For complete rates and services, or to get a quote, please contact me and tell me a little bit about your wedding.

Do you travel?

Yes, I travel frequently and I travel well. Typically there is no additional charge for travel within Western Colorado and Eastern Utah, unless special circumstances exist.

What kind of equipment do you use?

   I use Canon professional DLSRs and an array of fast, professional-grade lenses ranging from super-wide-angle to super-telephoto. I also have a trunk full of strobes, mono-lights and modifiers that will always put you in the very best light. I always pack a backup camera body, lots of spare batteries and extra memory cards too.

Do you have business/liability insurance?

Yes, I would be foolish not to.

Do you use a second shooter and/or assistants?

   Most of the time I am working alone and getting great results. However, if I feel that we need a second shooter to achieve your desired level of coverage, or if you request a second set of eyes, I do maintain a network of wonderful photographers that I can call on to help out. Occasionally, with your permission and at no additional cost to you, I will hire an assistant to help lug heavy gear up the mountain.

Do you do posed group shots too?


Do we need to provide a shot list?

   I’ve photographed quite a few weddings and you should feel confident that I will get all of the “must have” shots. I will ask you to provide me with a complete list of any group portraits that you want, let me know about any special people you would like to have photos of, and give me a heads up on any special circumstances or surprises that you have planned. (Don’t worry, I can keep a secret.)

Do you shoot video?

   I concentrate solely on creating the best possible still images of your wedding. I am trained for it, receive many accolades for it, and am sticking to it. If you like, I can refer you to a few video shooters that I know.

Do you deliver every image you shoot?

   No, delivering every image creates a logistical nightmare for both you and me. I take great care in eliminating duplicates, test shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may detract from the overall quality of the final product.

How long until I get my photos?

   You will receive a few select preview photos within 24 hours of your wedding to use for your thank you notes and social media. Unless otherwise agreed upon, your full wedding gallery will be delivered electronically within three weeks (that's about the quickest around).

Ok, we’re sold! How do we make the booking?

Either call me at (970) 901-8531 or use the contact page to get the ball rolling. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
