frequently asked questions
Are you insured?
Yes. Do let me know upon booking if your venue needs a certificate of insurance and for how much.
How many people on your team will cover my wedding?
Depending on the length and the package, up to two photographers and an assistant will be present.
Available for destination weddings?
Yes! I have weddings as far as Panama and Australia!
Do you provide any videography services?
Unfortunately, I prefer to be extremely good at one field than competent in two. However, I would be happy to recommend videographers!
What equipment do you shoot with?
Two Nikon D4s bodies. The very best.
Do you have backup equipment?
I always come over prepared, with up to 3-4 full-frame camera bodies, extra lenses, flashes, and batteries. Few other photographers can say that.
What format do you shoot in? What format do you deliver?
I shoot in large lossless RAW (highest quality possible). I deliver unwatermarked high-resolution images sized in at least 2 different formats: 1) for your personal viewing, 2) for social media.
What are the all the types of photography you do?
Events, corporate parties, weddings, engagement sessions, bridal showers, bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet 16s, sports.
What style is your photography?
Photojournalistic. I very much prefer to capture things as they're happening without the posing. But I'll be happy to provide tips if you ask nicely. Did you see my "happy" page? :)
My venue is [really dark, has high ceilings, has a mirror or glass ceiling]. How will you handle that?
I've shot at places such as Capitale, Cipriani 42nd St. (both of which has at least 60+ foot ceilings) as well as venues with mirrored domes or glass rooftop ceilings. I have no problem shooting in ANY sort of lighting condition. My technical skills are up there with the best.
Why should I hire you?
I feel that my work speaks for itself: super-sharp, always well-exposed, and among the best reception photos out there. Hire me if you feel comfortable with what you think you'll be getting. If not, I wish you the best with who you hire!
Why do you charge $4k+? for a day of shooting?
Because experience, quality, and worry-free assurance that I won't lose your photos and have backup equipment. Most of us photographers charge we're worth. Short list of reasons: 1) I shoot with the VERY best equipment that few other photographers would ever invest in, 2) I'm booking a good amount of work at this price, which means others
