We are young and talented fashion forward diverse and versatile able to handle absolutely anything that walks through the doors Almost every tattoo that I personally do is hand drawn on the skin with the exception of portraits and photo realism. So that no one can ever have the same tattoo. And that's what I love about doing tattoos. Every tattoo is as unique as the person who's getting it.

I am seasoned pastor with a doctorate in theology. For me, officiating is a service that I am unspeakable honored to render and I enjoy being able to help couples be unified in matrimony. It's your special moment and I take it very serious. So your requests for the ceremony will be held in high regard and will only recite would I speak from memory (no cell phone or piece of paper). In short, I'll be there to do my part while the focus remains on your and your momentous occasion.

Your photography questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a photographer cost?

The average cost to hire a photographer is $100 to $250 per hour, depending on their experience. However, photography prices vary significantly depending on the type of event or photo session:

Do you tip photographers?

The standard tipping etiquette for photographers depends on the type of photo session or event and how happy you are with the photographer's service:

  • Tip a wedding photographer $50 to $200 if the photographer exceeds your expectations. If the photographer works with a second shooter, be sure to tip the second photographer separately.
  • Consider tipping a family portrait photographer, pet photographer, or newborn photographer if you're happy with the photo session. However, tipping is not expected for family portraits taken at a big box store like JC Penney or Wal-Mart.
  • Tipping a photographer is not expected for headshots, commercial photography, real estate photography, or architectural photos.

If you're happy with the photographer's service, post a positive review online and share their photos on your social media.

How can I save money on a photographer?

Follow these tips to save money when you hire a photographer:

  • Book a "mini-session" – a shorter photo session that lasts only 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Choose your favorite photographers and follow them on social media. Some photographers may provide deals and exclusive offers.
  • Hire a less experienced photographer. However, be sure to review their portfolio to confirm they have enough skill to meet your photo needs.
  • Purchase prints from an online retailer instead of ordering them from the photographer.
  • Bundle multiple photo sessions for a discounted price. Some wedding photographers bundle engagement and wedding photos. Other photographers offer a bundle for newborn photos plus additional sessions as your child grows.

How far in advance should I book a photographer?

Book a wedding photographer as early as possible, ideally as soon as you've confirmed the date with your venue. Headshot, commercial, pet, and family portrait photographers typically don't require as much advanced notice. However, a popular, in-demand photographer may be booked out several months in advance.

How can I find the best photographer near me?

Follow these guidelines when searching for a photographer to ensure you find one who is the best match for you:

  • Look for photographers who specialize in the type of photography you want. A photographer who specializes in weddings won't be the best choice for a newborn baby photo shoot, and vice versa.
  • Review their online portfolios to confirm you like their photography style and aesthetic.
  • Read photographer reviews on Fash and Google.
  • Get a contract in writing before making a deposit.
  • Discuss the photo usage and printing rights to confirm how both you and the photographer can use the images. Photographers typically retain the copyright to the images, allowing them to use the photos for marketing and social media.

What questions should I ask a photographer?

Ask these questions to help you choose the best photographer for your needs:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • What type of photography do you specialize in?
  • What is your photography style?
  • Do you have an online portfolio I can view?
  • How far in advance should I book my photo shoot?
  • What deposit do you require, and is it refundable?
  • Do you have a photo studio? If not, where will you take the photos?
  • What should I do to prepare for the photo session?
  • How will you deliver the final photos to me?
  • How long will it take to get the photos?
  • Do you offer printed items or photo albums?
  • Who owns the rights to the photos?
  • Will you use my images on social media or your website portfolio?

John is an artist in the most whole sense of the word. I worked with him for the first time back in December of 2021 after he'd done a few of my classmates' headshots and it was nothing short of an artistically fulfilling experience. I've done photoshoots/ modeling before, but as an actor first I didn't expect to gain the amount of appreciation for the work that John does that I did in just one short headshot session. John not only shared with me techniques that would accentuate the shot, but he also encouraged me to not compartmentalize my skills as an actor, just because I didn't have a script in front of me. Truly wasn't expecting to have such a revelation during a routine headshot refresh but I couldn't shake the realization I'd had that art is art is art and that all of the skills we learn are transferrable interdisciplinarily. Even though we are on different ends of the art spectrum, we understood each other's respective verbiage and it made the session so so so enjoyable, fruitful, and special. BOOK. WITH. HIM.
