"Jon made our wedding day so seamless and helped everything run so smoothly! He is so easy to work with, very laid back, it made me and my husband feel so calm on the day of our wedding! Taking "staged" pictures can sometimes be awkward, but he made it so fun and we both felt so comfortable! Not to mention his pictures are absolutely amazing!! I highly recommend Jon!!"

"Jon was absolutely fantastic every step of the way. He did our engagement and wedding photos, we highly recommend him! He was professional, knowledgable, and very responsive. His creativity and passion was evident through his photos.  We cannot say enough wonderful things!"

-  Christie C.

"Jon was a calming, yet steadfast presence amidst the whirlwind of emotions and expectations. It was clear that Jon had a plan and implemented it strategically with the utmost diplomacy. I never felt like Jon wasn’t in control of his moment. We had a beautiful rain storm during our ceremony, yet Jon never faltered. His enthusiasm and dedication to his job, his art, allowed us to worry about everything except the photos."

Q:

A:

What  is  the  turnaround  on  your  wedding images?    how  long  before  we  can  expect to  see  our  iMages?

I typically estimate around 4 - 8 weeks for a turnaround, the biggest determine factor in your turnaround is what time of year your wedding is.  If it's peak wedding season (May - September) then you can most likely expect your images in the 6 - 8 week range while Fall & Winter weddings will usually be returned in the 4-5 week range.  You can also expect many "teasers" in the immediate weeks following the wedding.  As I am going through and editing, I will sen you little teasers (or "sneak peaks") that I feel you are going to absolutely love!  So you don't have to wait the full amount of time before seeing what will probably be some of your favorites from your wedding.

Q:

A:

should  we  expect  your  images  have watermarks  on  them?

Absolutely not.  Watermarks are a complete eye sore.  I'm not in the businesses of turning people's images into personal billboards for my business - your images will be sent over with no watermarks, logos or insignias unless you've otherwise requested it.

Q:

how  many  images  do  you  take  at  a wedding  and  how  many  can  we  expect edited  and  returned  to  us?

A:

The amount of images taken at a wedding greatly varies depending on several factors, including but not limited to:  How long have you hired us for?  Did you select a wedding collection that includes a Second Photographer?  How many locations are we photographing on your wedding day and how much drive time is involved in between locations?  Every wedding is vastly different.  I will tell you that I take a lot of pictures!  My philosophy is to take fantastic and breathtaking images, capture as much as possible and then to edit it all and return it to you.  If you're wondering if there are any amazing images that I'm sitting on and decided not to edit and send back to you?  The answer is no.  The way I see it?  These are your memories and your images, you've hired me to tell your story.  Why would I want to keep a part of that story from you?  I want to get every lovely pictures perfectly edited and returned to you so you can enjoy it for years.  I will say, on average for a 8 hour day with 2 photographers I will typically return around 750 fully edited images.  

Q:

A:

do  we   get  a  full  online  gallery  

of  our wedding  images?

You most certainly do!  When I've fully wrapped-up the editing process I will send you a email letting you know that everything is finished.  Within that email you can expect a link to your password protected gallery along with the login information, from there it is entirely up to you whether or not you'd like to share the gallery with any loved ones.  This gallery can be great for sharing with any out-of-state/country relatives who were maybe not able to make the flight so that they can experience the whole thing.  I will maintain this full gallery for you for 1 year from your wedding date.  Also, anyone with the login information can also order a wide variety of prints straight from the gallery and have them shipped directly to their house!  How snazzy!

Q:

A:

do  you  edit  all  of  your  images?

I do!  These are your memories and I don't want to hold anything back from you, so I go through and edit everything to get it back to you.  I will remove blinks, but other than that you really get it all!

Q:

A:

will  you  also  edit  some  of  the  images  in black  &  white?

That really all depends on your preferences.  This is typically something I discuss with clients at a consultation so that I can get a idea for your interest level in Black & White photography.  If you do have interest in Black & White photographs that is something we can definitely incorporate into your finished images.

Q:

do  you  travel  for  weddings?

A:

I absolutely do!  I love to travel and my travel fees are very reasonable!  If I have to fly, rent a car or stay in a hotel we can discuss that ahead of time and will bill for that, but no other fees will be added beyond that.  For weddings I can drive to, I typically charge travel for those on a case-by-case basis and the fees are minimal.  A good rule of thumb is if you're venue is within a 1 hour drive (one way) then I am totally fine driving there and back with no additional fees.

Q:

A:

what  if  we  are  interested  in  prints  or  a custom  album?

All of our collections include the Print Rights to your images - giving you the right to print your own images however and whenever you'd like!  We want to be as flexible as possible so we give you those print rights so you have the right to print your memories on your own terms.  We do offer optional printing directly through your custom online gallery you receive when your images are finished, giving you and your loved ones the ability to print high quality prints and have them shipped directly to your home - easy!  As for albums, there are such a wide variety of options out there and we would be more than happy to schedule a consultation with you after your wedding to go over product lines, look at samples and begin the design process for you.  Albums are a beautiful way to experience on of the happiest days of your life and you will never regret investing in such a stunning physical format for your images.

Q:

A:

have  you  ever  photographed  our  venue before?

There's a decent chance that I have as I've photographed over 100 weddings all over Washington State.  If not, I do guarantee checking out a venue prior to your wedding day in order to get fully acquainted with the venue and the surrounding area.  If possible, I do enjoy doing a "walk-thru" with my couples prior to the wedding.  This is a fun way to explore the venue, discuss portrait locations, go through the ceremony set-up and really just discuss your guys' wedding and how we can make the day absolutely perfect for you.

 
can't wait to hear from you!
