Elias worked beautifully with the tricky light on the Ravello coastline, scouted unique and gorgeous photo locations, and the photos capture our range of emotions. Working with Elias was both professional and enjoyable.

what is your pricing?

Every celebration I capture is distinct and each event comes with its own unique requirements. With this in mind, I quote every destination wedding, elopement, and portrait session on an individual basis.

How do I confirm my wedding date?

Once you’ve settled on a wedding date and we’ve established the services I will provide, I will prepare and send a formal contract for your review. I kindly request that your signed contract is returned within a week to guarantee your date is reserved. Once I am in receipt of your signed contract and retainer, your wedding date is officially confirmed.

Do you offer videography?

I do not offer videography services, however I would be glad to provide recommendations when we begin working together!

Do you work with a second shooter?

Absolutely! A second shooter is essential. They will capture parts of your wedding, such as guests enjoying cocktail hour, when I’ll be photographing your portraits.

Do you shoot film or digital?

I shoot both and I choose which to use according to the situation. Film and digital have different aptitudes and I have been capturing my subjects using both mediums for many years.

When will you arrive to our wedding location?

I always scout a location prior to your wedding day to determine the best spots for pictures and to acquaint myself with the entire situation. I will arrive to familiarize myself with your wedding venue the day before your event. 

Should I make a "shot list" of my desired photos?

Planning a wedding usually means there are lots of things to take care of, a shot list shouldn’t be one of them. My detailed approach will ensure you have plenty of photos to remember your wedding day by, but bringing to my attention any special people, planned moments, or unique details you’d like captured is recommended, so to know what to anticipate.

Does the online gallery include all of the images you take?

The images in your online gallery are a curated selection that tell the whole story of your wedding day. I include only the highest quality photographs from each portion of your event. Excluded imagery may include unflattering countenances, closed eyes, or blurred captures.

What are image turnaround times?

My passion for perfection means I like to carefully manage and present your gallery. Turnaround times for wedding images is less than 30 days. An option to jump the queue for a faster delivery is also available.
