I tailor images to my clients brand, their esthetic and do my best to fit a realistic budget. The process should be enjoyable with good communication and the results will reflect those steps. It is much more pleasant to go to work when everyone enjoys meeting new people, allow them to do their work with the tools they need and allowed to contribute their ideas. I love the variety of subjects, people and places my work afford me. I enjoy the challenges of Pre-Production, setting expectations and then exploring where the elements take us. I find that every project has a life of its own and you simply need to let everyone contribute what they do...

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?

All I can say is... WOW!! Andy is beyond brilliant! He really took the time to get to know me and his subject, my dog Gizmo. I was hesitant at first hiring any photographer seeing as how pictures/photographers haven't been the best in my past experiences. But all it took was one phone call from Andy and I immediately knew I had to hire this man! From the minute I spoke to him on the phone he was passionate, asked so many questions (which made me feel so secure) I told him what style of photography I wanted, what poses I wanted and he truly made me feel like a long time friend! Andy did a farewell photo shoot for my handsome Boi and it was the best investment I've EVER made. I look at these pictures and see nothing but pure love and joy. My Gizmo was like a puppy again, full of energy (didn't listen the best haha) and just full of life. It filled my heart with so much love and pure happiness ❤️ I will recommend Andy until he retires AND am quickly booking another session with my pretty girl, Laila. Thank you so much Andy for the everlasting memories and the joy you've brought into my life as well as my fur baby!
