FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

CAN YOU HIRE CARM FOR MORE THAN JUST WEDDINGS? 

100%! Though in the last 2 years, I have focused mainly on wedding fashion and event coverage, I began my journey into photography and video by experimenting in the business and fashion world. Check out my "Other Works" section as part of this website to explore the extent of my portfolio, including corporate promotional material, and various editorials.

OUTSIDE THE GTA? IS THAT A PROBLEM?

Not at all. All travel fees and pricing will be explained during consultations. As I tell all my clients, I believe in being fair to everyone for their time and efforts.

ARE WEDDING PACKAGES NEGOTIABLE? 

Yes. The packages listed on my "Wedding Information and Pricing" page are a starting point. If you wish to decrease or increase the amount of staff, that is possible. Just be aware that these packages were formed by my experience, knowing you will get the better, more consistant product as these packages are currently structured. I do not offer discounts, rather promos, as my pricing is extremely competitive and in most cases, cannot be beat for photographers with my experience and credentials.  

ARE CONSULTATIONS FREE?

Consultations are free, however, if you cannot meet me at the location I provide you, then there will be a $75 fee to travel to you.

CAN WE HIRE CARM FOR BOTH PHOTO AND VIDEO FOR OUR WEDDING?

Yes. However, I am a freelance artist, and will be dedicated to one of the arts that day, having a team of other trusted freelancers handling photo or video where I cannot. 

WHY DOESN'T CARM PROVIDE PRINTS?

It's 2016 and we should all save the trees.  I will provide you with high resolution photos either online, on a USB, or hard drive where the copies are endless.

WHAT IS THE MIN-MAX DEPOSIT AMOUNT TO HOLD THE DATE?

I require a 50-70% deposit amount to hold your date.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS OR VIDEOS?

Photos will be ready for pick up within a month of your booking. Videos will be delivered as negotiated, if not, allow for 3-8 months at minimum.

CAN WE PURCHASE THE REST OF AN ENTIRE SHOOT OR PROJECT?

Yes. For photo shoots (including engagement sessions, excluding weddings), it is a flat rate of $175. For video (excluding weddings), the price will be determined on a project per project basis. 

WHAT ARE DUPLICATION FEES?

If you happen to loose or damage your copy, you may ask for a duplicate, which is a flat rate of $50. Materials not included.

WHAT IS THE BEST METHOD OF CONTACT?

You may call during regular business hours, however, if I am on set, or in a meeting, I will return your call as soon as I receive your message. For email inquires, please allow for 2-3 business days.

Ask any wedding photographer in September what they did this summer, and you probably won’t hear: I went on vacay! Just relaxed by the pool. Spent time with family and friends. Worked on the house. We don’t hibernate when summer is over because of the weather, but because of all the editing we have to do from the summer wedding season. So far, I have been so honoured to witness the joining of lives of some of my beautiful friends, including Andy and Carmela Di Martino (Check out Andy at Amici Spa in Markham, he is amazing with hair!) and blushing bride Ashley and Derek. Every detail adds a special touch and I love showing up and seeing what decor the couple has come up with… from sparkly backdrops, to cupcakes, to martini bars, and smoke machines! It is quite the show! And trust me, I am taking notes of all the things I liked or thought were super unique. So brides, perhaps I should thank you for making my decisions easy for when my time comes! The photos featured in this blog post of these two weddings always make me smile; I loved being a part of these life […]
