1. Who will be shooting my wedding?
Me, Greg Petersen. Head on over to the about me section to get to know me a bit better.
9. How long does it usually take to receive all of our photos?
It typically takes 8-10 weeks.
10. What is your photography style?
My approach is very photojournalistic. I love to capture real moments as they happen and try not to do a ton of posing. I will give direction when needed and let you get comfortable within each pose to make sure everything looks natural.
3. Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! I am based out of Modesto, Ca but love to travel for weddings. If you are having a destination wedding, i’d love to come along for the adventure and document the entire thing.
11. What is your editing style?
I do my best to produce consistent work that represents my style. My editing is very warm and dynamic. My goal is to create something that takes you back to the moment that I captured in a unique way. I will never change backgrounds or manipulate the image in a way that is unnatural.
4.Do we need a second shooter?
I would suggest using a second shooter for larger weddings. Having a second shooter also ensures we capture every moment of your day. It helps me focus on specific moments while adding a different perspective.
12. What camera gear do you use?
I always shoot with 2 canon cameras – 5D Mark IV and 5D Mark III. This ensures an instant backup incase something were to go wrong.
5. Do you shoot engagement sessions?
Of course! I offer an engagement session in a couple of my packages. This is a great way to get to know each other before the wedding day and really helps to get you both relaxed in front of the camera. These may be my favorite sessions.
13. Where do you shoot engagements?
I am completely inspired by the outdoors and my sessions reflect that. Either a hike in the mountains, walk along the coast, or a stroll in the forest. I am always down for an adventure and am grateful to have clients that come along!
6. How will we receive our images?
Once your images have been edited, they will be uploaded to a private gallery for 1 year. You will be able to download, order prints and share your images from this site. For an additional fee, I can send you a USB drive with all of the edited images in high resolution.
14. How do we book with you and how do we pay?
A 25% deposit and signed contract locks in your date. I accept payments of credit, debit, cash or check. Everything can be done online.
7.Do you give out the RAW files?
I do not release the RAW files for a number of reasons. I believe that clients should receive a finished image, much like the final plated meal in an elegant restaurant instead of the contents of the refrigerator! In addition, by not releasing the RAW files I am able to protect my brand, the artwork that I produce and my standard for all of my finished images.
15. do you have business insurance?
I sure do. Some venue’s require this, so just let me know and I’ll be more than happy to provide it.
8. How many photos will we receive for a wedding?
Typically its somewhere around 300-500 images for a full wedding.
