Communication is extremely important to me. I don't believe in surprises when it comes to what I do. I want you to know exactly what you're getting every step of the way. These questions are ones I get asked frequently. If you have any others please ask anytime.
How do you pronounce your first name?
Most people mispronounce my name at first, no worries. It's pronounced Lee-at and the t is soft.
Where are you based?
What do you charge?
My most popular package includes full day wedding coverage and an engagement session. This comes out to $3850 + hst.
I offer 3 different packages and also offer custom packages based on a wedding's particular needs.
What is full day wedding coverage?
It starts from when you're getting ready. Sometimes I photograph one person getting ready, sometimes two - this depends on your preference + logistics. Coverage ends around half an hour into dancing at the end of the night. I leave when the 3 of us feel that the story is complete.
Full day translates to approximately 8-10 hours. There is an option of extending it at an hourly rate after the tenth hour.
How many photos will we receive & when?
You can expect to receive 50 photos/hr. This turns out to a minimum of 500 photos for 10 hours of coverage (typical full day coverage). I believe that delivering unretouched photos is like delivering an unfinished product. Which is why ALL photos that you see are retouched in my personal style.
Wedding photos are delivered 4-8 weeks from the date of your wedding & engagement sessions take 2-4 weeks.
Do we need a second photographer?
It depends. Smaller, more intimate weddings most likely don't need one and most of my weddings I photograph alone.
I encourage an additional photographer for larger groups (175+ guests). There are many benefits to having two photographers as opposed to one such as more guests are documented.
Do you only shoot weddings outdoors with natural light?
Not by any means. I am experienced in photographing in a range of lighting situations from outdoors to incredibly dark rooms. Get in touch so I can send you full wedding stories that might be similar to yours.
What do you shoot with?
The type of camera you own does NOT equate to how good of a photographer you are. What's important is your vision!
Rest assured, I shoot with 2 full frame Nikon cameras (and bring a third full frame camera as back up). I use prime lenses only.
Will you work abroad?
I shoot several weddings abroad each year and charge a modest fee to cover transportation, airfare and 2-3 nights of accommodation. Every event is unique and is figured out individually. Let me know the date and location of your event and I'll provide a personalized quote.
How do we book you?
I prefer meeting people in person. There's something about talking organically that can't be replicated through an email chain.
Once we chat, if you're keen on moving forward I ask for a signed agreement & a deposit to secure your wedding date.
