First, please watch this short video for a quick look at a full wedding from Nix Weddings ...
What is a wedding photojournalist?
Photojournalism is a way of telling truthful, honest stories with photos. Weddings are events full of spontaneous joy and emotion and I absolutely love to tell those once-in-a-lifetime stories and capture real, one-of-a-kind moments.
What about portraits?
Absolutely! Along with the fabulous candids, I love finding creative ways to photograph you and your new spouse together. We generally spend time before or after the ceremony on this.
Do you take posed family photos?
Of course! Everyone didn’t get all dressed up for nothing. This is generally done following the ceremony, and we move quick ... everyone wants to get to the party on time!
How long will you be at the wedding?
My goal is to tell the full story of your day, so I begin while everyone is getting ready and finish up after the grand exit.
Can you hold my date for me?
I am a full-time professional so I can only guarantee your date once you book and pay the retainer fee. That said, once you schedule a consultation I'll be happy to place a temporary hold on your date until we meet.
Are you the photographer?
Yes, if you book with me, I will be the primary photographer at your wedding.
Do you work with a second shooter?
This is an optional add-on. I have a network of highly skilled and trusted photographers who shoot with me. Having a second shooter helps us better tell the story of your day and you'll ultimately get more photos.
What if you get sick or some emergency comes up?
This is one of the best questions you should ask. Simply put, life does happen when we least expect it. In the event of an emergency, I will make every effort possible to be at your wedding, but in the unlikely scenario that I cannot, I have a network of highly skilled and trusted photographers I can ask to step in for me. Ask me about the day my son was born!
We want to do something really cool we saw on Pinterest, can you shoot that?
I am always open for suggestions, however my goal is to tell your unique story, not someone else’s. That said, I do find inspiration from countless forms of media, so please share.
Do you edit the images or do I get everything you shot on my wedding day?
I hand edit everything after the wedding using the most up-to-date photo software out there. You will get the digital files within 2-3 weeks of your wedding date through a password protected gallery right here on this site. The files are yours to share, print and love. As an added bonus, I will put up a small "sneak peek" on Facebook the day after the wedding so you can immediately share with your family and friends.
I see a lot of black and white images along with color images?
All of the images are edited to my own aesthetics. While all images are initially shot in color, converting it to black and white brings out certain elements of a photo. The majority of photos will be delivered in color, but I do like to mix in black and white images. Often times you have one of each.
What’s a “Storybook” wedding album?
My Storybook Albums are hand-crafted to tell the story of your day. They feature multiple images per spread (two pages) and are printed on archival papers. They are amazing; you really have to hold one in your hands to understand. Contact me and I’ll be happy to show you.
I have another question?
Sounds like we should meet up to chat! Fill out the form below and we'll make it happen.
When's a good time to meet up for coffee and talk more?
(if distance is an issue, we can easily schedule a call or get on Skype!)
