What services do you offer?
When it comes to weddings I offer photography and videography services. Everything from engagement sessions, to highlight reels and anything in between.
The best part is you can take me on your journey. I offer newborn sessions in my own fully equip newborn studio and family sessions anytime.
Can I hire you for both photography and videography?
No - that would require me to be an Octopus.
When should I book?
If your wedding is between the months of May and October, it is always best to book at least 6 months in advance. This is my busiest time and weddings usually land on weekends…unfortunately there are only so many of those.
How long have you been doing photography and videography?
I shot my first wedding when I was 12. Mind you, I was probably the third shooter and all the shots were taken from 4 ft. BUT I was the only one that got any getting ready footage of the bride that day soooo….
In all seriousness, I have always know this was my passion. I was lucky that I never had moments of uncertainty when it came to what I was suppose to do. I have always loved holding a camera, it has always felt right to me.
Should I book an engagement session?
YES. Consider your engagement session the dress rehearsal. It gives us a chance to get comfortable with each other and gives you a chance to feel out what its like being in front of a camera. By the wedding, you will be a pro.
When will I receive my photos?
I try my absolute hardest to get you a few sneak peaks the next day. These photos are edited but are not final copies. Though it gives you something to post and hold you over.
During wedding season, galleries can take up to 8 weeks to finish. Sometimes longer for full feature films, with that said I try to have your highlight video done within the month.
Are you the primary shooter and is there a second shooter?
I am the primary shooter always when booking with LR Studios. Especially when it comes to videography, I pride myself in being able to capture your entire day all on my own. It keeps your cost down and less people hanging around you all day. But if you would prefer to have a second shooter, I have a few fellow photographers and videographers with a similar style that I would hire to help!
What do you shoot with?
Canon all the way. For wedding photography I will primary shoot with my Canon Mark ||| and my Canon 6d, you will usually see both of these cameras hanging from my shoulders, one sporting a 50mm lens and the other an 85mm. For videography, the Canon 80d is my go to, with a large zoom lens. I do keep my two other bodies on tripods to capture different angles of my shots.
Do you edit all the photos yourself?
Absolutely. Editing is one of my favourite parts. I like to be very creative with my editing but by no means will I go over board. It will be a happy medium so that your photos look edgy and unique while still keeping a natural appeal.
