Q. Where are you located?
A. PMP is located in the NW suburbs of the Atlanta Metro Area, but serves the entire Atlanta Area within a 50 mile
radius for weddings. Anything outside of that may have a travel fee. Please contact us for details about portrait sessions.
Q. Are you available for Destination weddings?
A. Yes!!! And I love them!!! I have shot in Hawaii, New York City, Washington DC, Florida and much more! An all
day package is required plus any travel expenses.
Feel free to contact me to chat more about your details!
Q. Do you offer the CD negatives?
A. Yes and no. I'm moving PMP away from CDs to a virtual option. Over time CDs
deteriorate and/or get lost etc. To prevent any loss of your photos, I am now uploading
all of your images to an online album where you can view/order and now download all of
your high res files to your computer, hard drive, thumb drive or even burn your own CD
if you prefer. It's the exact same images you'd get on a CD from me, so don't worry that
you're getting something different. Plus you get your images faster since you don't have to wait
for me to put your CD in the mail. I will e-mail you with your download password and a print
release for you to use when you go to get enlargements as soon as I get your online album
finished. So, the answer is YES, but in a different format than CD. :D
Q. What is the difference between a High Resolution CD, and the Full Resolution CD?
A. There is no difference. They are both the best quality images you can get. They are also referred
to as the CD negatives sometimes and you are able to use them to print your own enlargements.
Q. Where can I go to print enlargements?
A. You can go anywhere, but PLEASE go somewhere with high quality prints. A bad print can
make an awesome photo look bad. I recommend Wolf Camera. If you MUST use Wal-Mart, their
1 hour photo or the Fuji or Kodak Kiosks are okay. Please donít use send out, and please
donít use Walgreens, Snapfish or Shutterfly. They are cheaper, but your photos will also look cheaper.
Q. How long do you keep my photos?
A. I keep every edited photo I take for-ever!
Q. Do you backup your photos?
A. Yes! I have always backed them up, but I had a scare once with a fire in my house, so I
even keep another backup in a fireproof box.
Q. Do you shoot with an assistant or second photographer?
A. Normally I shoot alone, and I would have to say, I do a pretty good job of getting around. :D
But, I also have second photographers available if you would like to hire one for your wedding. And
occasionally I will have an assistant or apprentice come to shadow me and they sometimes take photos too.
Q. Do I have to purchase an album now, or can I wait?
A. You can wait! You can order an album or prints at anytime after the wedding.
Q. How long does it take to get my pictures back?
A. A typical wedding takes about two to three weeks to finish. Occasionally I will be super gung-ho
and finish it in one week. And during busy seasons or other reasons it may take about three weeks.
Iíve never had anyone wait longer than four weeksÖ. Knock on woodÖ
Q. What happens if you arenít able to shoot the wedding at the last minute?
A. I have several associate photographers on my staff, plus a few more trusted/talented
photographers and friends. Thankfully, I havenít had any emergencies come up,
but I know I have a team of good backups if something were to happen.
Q. What if I cancel my wedding after I have already booked?
A. The retainer is non-refundable for a cancellation, but I try to work with people on an individual basis.
Q. What if I change my date after I have already booked?
A. I suggest that you to check with PMP to see if the new date is available before you make it official.
If Iím available, there is no charge and we can change your paperwork. If I am not available for the
new date, we may have to assign an associate photographer for you.
Q. Do you touch up minor blemishes?
A. Yes! Each photo is touched up, and if there is a small blemish or mark, I try to make sure to
clean it up. After all, itís my job to make you look fabulous!
Q. How many pictures to you take at a wedding?
A. For a typical wedding I will take an average of thousand photos. I sort through and only edit
the absolutely BEST photos and provide about an average of 500 to the client. However, Iíve been
known to give up to 900 images for a large wedding with lots of details.
Q. Do you have liability insurance?
Q. Do you have a studio?
A. I mostly shoot outdoors or on location, so I have found that I donít need a studio for the type of photography I offer.
Q. What kind of equipment do you use?
A. I shoot with a Nikon D300 and D700 at the moment.
Q. Do you have backup equipment?
A. Absolutely. I usually arrive to an event with three cameras, three flashes, tons of memory
and battery backups as well.
Q. How far in advance should I book you for my wedding?
A. Typically I book weddings about a year in advance! So please book as soon as possible to guarentee
