How can I book you for our wedding?
Please use the “Contact” link in the menu at the top of this website. I can then tell you if I am available for your wedding date and send you additional information on packages and pricing. Please note that each year I receive around 200 inquiries for roughly 30 available wedding dates, and I can only hold these dates with a signed contract and retainer.
How far in advance should I book you?
Most couples book about 9-18 months before their wedding. I book some weddings as far as 20 months in advance, and occasionally as little as 2 or 3 months ahead. In Montreal, most of my weddings are from April until October. Winter weddings are in December and the rest of the time , I travel to destination locations.
How much does it cost to hire you?
Because every wedding is different, prices vary. For example, I photograph weddings for 8 hours on a weekday in January, but I also photograph three-day weekend events during high wedding season. I photograph weddings locally and weddings that take place thousands of miles away. Please contact me and I will send you detailed pricing information and package options for your wedding. Most of the couples I meet, customize wedding collections to fit their needs.
Do you travel for weddings?
My business is based in the Greater Montreal Area but I regularly photograph weddings throughout Canada. I have worked with couples travelling to a destination location for their exotic wedding. I have photographed in Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica, Dominicain Republic, Lebanon, New York, Detroit, Toronto and Ottawa.
What is your experience with photographing weddings?
As a full-time wedding photographer, I have documented over 300 weddings. The weddings I photograph are diverse, especially in a multicultural city such as Montreal. I have documented Catholic, Jewish, Egyptian Coptic, non-denominational Christian, Indian, Armenian, Vietnamese, Italians, Greek, Lebanese, Muslim and non-religious ceremonies. I would love to learn all about the customs and events of your wedding!
As a word-of-mouth business, I have no paid advertising or any paid listings with venues. It is very important that I have trusting relationships and happy clients who will then recommend me to their friends and family.
When will our photos be ready?
Your digital proofs will be ready in an online gallery within 4-6 weeks of your wedding. Pre-album design is ready after the wedding for the couple to approve.
What other services do you offer?
Should we provide you with a list of photos or example images that we would like taken at our wedding?
No. We will have a photo planning session a few weeks prior to your wedding, and at that time, we will talk about all of the details and aspects of your wedding that are most important to you. From our discussion, I will create a detailed schedule that I will run by you for review. But other than the list of family photos, I prefer not to work with predetermined lists of specific shots.
If we over-plan your wedding with lists of specific shots, then we will miss out on the unscripted, genuine human interactions. If we go into your wedding trying to replicate a photograph from someone else’s wedding, then we will miss on what probably made that photo so special in the first place — its uniqueness! Based on the light, mood, emotion, location, and style of your wedding, we will work together to create original, and mostly unscripted art that is for and about you.
