Q&A COURTESY OF THEKNOT.COM
What style(s) do you specialize in?
My ascetic is light & airy, inspired by fuji film and filled with authentic emotion.
Will the photos be retouched and color balanced? Is that done before I see the proofs?
I hand edit all the images before delivery. It’s all part of the luxury experience I provide.
How many weddings have you shot, and how many do you do in a year? Also, what's your favorite part of a wedding day, and time of year to shoot?
I have shot over 200 weddings. I shoot an average of 50 weddings a year with 20 of those being associate weddings. My favorite part of the wedding day is when I get to steal away the newly married couple for sunset photos (golden hour). The couple is much more relaxed by this time of the day & the light is at it’s most glorious! My favorite time of year to shoot is early fall because the light looks like golden hour almost ALL DAY!
Do you shoot both digital and film?
Just digital -- but my editing style emulated film.
What exactly is included in your packages?
How many hours of coverage do we get? What is the charge for overtime?
However many you want! <3 Overtime is billed at $425/hr.
What is the deposit and total fee?
The deposit is 50% of the total package price.
Will you be my actual photographer, or will it be one of your associates?
It depends on which you prefer! I offer packages with me (B. Jones) or with an associate.
Do you have backup photographers who will shoot the wedding if you're sick?
of course! I’m part of a community of professional wedding photographers who are all eager to help one another out in the event of an EMERGENCY. I don’t believe in getting sick. ;)
Will there be a second shooter or any assistants? Is there an additional fee for each (if applicable)?
Every package includes the option to add an additional photographer for an additional fee of $1000.
How long after the wedding do we get to see the photos?
you’ll see sneak peeks on Facebook/Instagram the week after your wedding. The full gallery is available 30 days after your wedding day.

How many weddings do you do a weekend?
1-2 weddings per weekend. Only one wedding per day.
Will you follow a shot list? Or do you prefer to have free reign to capture the festivities how you see fit?
I request that all couples provide me with a shot list for Family Photos. For the rest of the day, you can trust that I will capture your day as it happens organically.
What type of paper will you use for the prints and album?
Archival quality. <3 These are cherished heirlooms that last longer than a lifetime.
What are the restrictions for sharing photos online or for publication? Do you own the copyright to the photos?
I own the copyright. However, you have unlimited personal use of the photos for printing/download.
Do you bring your own lighting?
Heck ya! That’s my job! ;)
What will you wear?
I like to dress like a “nice guest.” Generally this means a black or neutral colored dress with classic jewelry & ballet flats.
