What kind of equipment do you use?
It starts with using a dual camera strap. I carry two Canon 5D Mark III cameras, one with a short lens, and one with a long lens. This allows me to be ready for almost anything. Imagine a photographer with one camera and as the bride walks down the aisle and the camera has a malfunction. Well having two cameras ready this is not an issue. A photographer can’t say stop the wedding I have a camera problem. I also have backup gear just in case, so I am ready for just about anything.

How do you protect our wedding day images?
This is a very important subject, that we do not take this lightly. My cameras have dual memory card slots, so with each press of the shutter button, the RAW image is captured on each card. Immediately upon returning from your wedding, your images are download to my computer, which is backed up by a Synology Disk Station Raid Array.
Once the images are processed into readable files, they are uploaded in full resolution to my website. This is a worldwide service that has redundant backup systems in place. Expose The Moment takes every precaution when dealing with your image's, however, no one solution is perfect, but we have these procedures in place to ensure your photographs are safe.
When will we be able to see our photographs?
Per the contract delivery time is two to six weeks, however, most wedding galleries are delivered within two weeks. Please be aware that there are times when I am unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances. Every effort is made to process your images within the two to six week period.
What is the online gallery
The online gallery is a service that I provide through my website. You along with family and friends can view the images from your wedding and order any prints that they want. A slideshow system is built in for your convenience. You can also share images or the whole gallery to online social media sites. All clients receive their images with print rights, but you can also order professional prints from your gallery.
