Q. DO YOU TRAVEL? DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR TRAVEL ACCOMMODATIONS?
A. Yes I do travel for wedding, engagement, and event commissions.  I’ve traveled domestically and internationally for event commissions.  I require clients to pay for travel on commissions outside of the Greenville/Spartanburg area.

Q. HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?
A. If I had to pick three words to describe my shooting style it would be: Fun, Candid, and Classic.  To be perfectly honest with you having a camera in my hand is my freeing stress reliever, and because of this I like to carry that vibe over to my clients. I strive for your time with me to be as fun filled and relaxing as possible because that just carries through to the camera.  I attempt to be as non intrusive as possible while I shoot because it allows me to capture the natural candid essence and emotion of the clients.  I often use the analogy of a ninja with a camera to describe the way I shoot.

Q. WILL MY FINAL IMAGES BE EDITED?
A. Most certainly.  All final images will be edited.  I define my editing style around my shooting style: Fun, Candid, and Classic.  I put a great deal of emphasis on the classic portion of my style as I want my work to stand the test of time.  I strive to provide a final product that your grandparents will love today, and you will still love tomorrow when you look back as grandparents yourselves.

Q. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING?
A. I’ve been photographing events and lifestyle portraits since 2010.

Q. HOW WILL YOU DELIVER MY IMAGES & HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THEM?
A. My delivery method for images varies for each job.  The clients delivery preferences will be discussed signing a contract, and the chosen methods (web download link, USB drive, etc) will be reflected in the final contract. Generally, images will be delivered in 2-4 weeks after the event or session.
