Q: WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS’ WORK?
A: i take all of my photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. don’t worry too much about what to do; sessions are candid & fun, but i give gentle direction when needed!
Q: WHere can i get info on pricing?
A: packages start at under $2000. however, just like all couples are different, not all packages are the same, and may need to be customized. please reach out, and we can discuss which package works best for you!
Q: who is “matt phoenix” if your name is jason?
A: my favorite question. so my middle name is “matthew”, hence “matt”… and “phoenix” was my favorite word as a kid. i can be a nerd sometimes, ok? so no, i don’t work for this guy. it’s me. you can call me jason.
Q: HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE THERE AT OUR WEDDING?
A: although most of my wedding collections come with just me (i’m so fun, though), you can always add on a second photographer for an additional cost.
Q: do you have any reviews i can see?
A: absolutely! in fact, i highly encourage all of my potential clients to read what others have said. ask my wife how long i read reviews before picking a restaurant. check out mine by clicking here. beware…there’s a lot. :)
Q: DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ELOPEMENTS?
A: of course! depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, i have special rates for weekday weddings and elopements.
Q: DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF PREFERRED VENDORS TO USE?
A: i sure do, but am still expanding my list! from wedding coordinators to bartenders and DJs, i have worked with some of the best companies in the industry and would be happy to share their information with you!
Q: WE’RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING. DO YOU TRAVEL?
A: oh…yeah. i love destination weddings and have had the privilege of traveling to Antigua and Nevis to shoot weddings, but am dying for a new adventure. please send me more information on your travel plans, and i will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs.
Q: DO I HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
A: since i send your photos via WeTransfer.com, you have the freedom to use the high-resolution files to print from the location of your choice. i’ve found that Artifact Uprising has great quality, but there are many choices out there! your contract also includes full rights to images, so feel free to print away!
Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
A: a great camera doesn’t make you a better photographer, however i use all of the latest canon equipment. i carry the 5d mark iv, the 6d mark ii, 35 mm lens (“zoom with your feet”), 135 mm lens, & the 24-70 mm lens, among other items. i also carry full insurance with state farm for any unexpected event on the big day.
Q: ARE THE COUPLES ON YOUR SITE MODELS?
A: funny…while i’m fortunate to work with gorgeous couples, the images shown on my site and blog are of regular, paying clients.
Q: HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?
A: all packages have two payment options, one involving a discount. payment can be made by check or paypal, the latter being the preferred option. here’s option one…a 50% deposit and signed contract can be sent to reserve the date, however the full price would apply. option two…if the package is paid in full, a $250 discount is applied. a little help for the bajillion things that you have to pay for.
