Q:) How would you describe your style as a wedding photographer?
A:) I usually refer to my work as natural. I like to capture the candid moments of your day and remain as unobtrusive as possible. I favor natural light over flash, so you’re not barraged with blinking lights. During formals, I work with you to make sure you feel comfortable and look like a superstar. I tend to have a more modern, magaziney style when it comes to formals, but I always customize the shoot to what you want, because its YOUR day, after all!
Q:) What kind of equipment do you use?
A:) I photograph with the latest Nikon digital cameras. I have lots of high-end lenses, and extra camera bodies in case anything ever happened, ensuring the best possible wedding pictures for your big day. You can always view the what’s in my bag page if you want to know more. :)
Q:) Do you use flash?
A:) I try to keep flash to a minimum. Natural light gives the rich, deep colors we all love, and allows for a more intimate experience. When flash is needed, I use Nikon professional flashes and off-camera flash.
Q:) Does Lexi actually photograph my wedding herself?
A:) Absolutely—if you hire me, I’m your wedding photographer! I take pride in my work and personally photograph every wedding that I book. I also have a second wedding photographer on site with me for the event. This second shooter is in places that I cannot be, such as inside the church while I am outside and taking candid shots during the reception. This ensures full coverage of your event.
Q:) Do you photograph engagement portraits or rehearsal dinner coverage?
A:) Yes. You can always add rehearsal dinner coverage to your wedding package. As far as engagement sessions, I love them! Thats why I include complimentary engagement portrait sessions with every package. Not only are they a great way to get to know your wedding photographer, they also serve as a rehearsal for your big day. Its a chance to get over your camera shyness and figure out what works for you (I look great when I smile!), and what doesn’t (stop slouching!).
Q:) Do you host my wedding pictures online?
A:) Of course! I host your event for up to 3 months on a password-protected site that allows your family and friends to order prints direct from the gallery. This is a fast, easy, and secure way to share your wedding pictures with those you love.
Q:) How fast will I be able to view my wedding photos?
A:) Fast. It is important that your wedding photographer be able to give you speedy turnaround on your photos. I generally post a Facebook sneak peek within a couple of days and your wedding blog post within a week or two. I will have all your wedding pictures online within 4 weeks of your big day.
Q:) How much do you require as a deposit for your services?
A:) I ask for a signed contract and a $1,000 deposit to hold your date. I accept cash, credit card, and even personal check.
Q:) Will my wedding be awesome?
A:) Yes it will. It will be one for the books, I assure you. Why? Because you’re marrying someone who loves you. Isn’t that amazing?
