Grab some milk and cookies and read on. =)
+ How long is your turnaround for final images?
I do my best to get your photos to you as soon as possible, but I don't like to rush through the editing process just to get you the photos sooner. I want you to love the final product, so please be patient- I quote 3 weeks for final images to be sent to you, but more often than not, I'm done earlier.
+ Can I choose my own images?
The short answer is no. The long answer: Trust me, I'm not keeping your best photos to myself. I go through hundreds of blurry, duplicate, badly lit, non-flattering photos, only to give you images that made the final cut. Edited images, like the ones shown here on my website,are what I want to represent me and it’s the caliber that I want people to expect, so if I let you choose photos, not only would it be overwhelming to go through the hundreds of photos, it wouldn't represent my work and style, which is why you hired me to begin with. Don't worry, you're in good hands. =)
+ Can you give me the Raw files?
Daniela Bowker said it best. "Asking a photographer to hand over a memory card, USB, or DVD of raw images is akin to asking an author to present you with their book in manuscript format: unedited, unformatted, and including the paragraphs and chapters that didn’t make it."
