Frequently Asked Questions with Adam:
How are you different from other photographers?
Style, attitude and heart. From the moment we first meet I am personally invested in your event. I will always do my best to provide you with the highest level of quality, service, and professionalism. I wouldn’t ask anything less for myself and wouldn’t want any less for you.
Will you be photographing our wedding/event or do you send someone else?
Unless there is an emergency or other unavoidable situation, I will always be your photographer. You hire me, you get me. I typically have an assistant and may even have that assistant photograph with another camera.
Do you bring a second photographer?
A second photographer can be provided if necessary, but one is typically not needed. I will help you create a timeline for your wedding day that will allow us to capture everything and put you at ease as to how your day will play out. I’ve also found that when a second shooter is involved you often end up with more photos than you care to look at and may have photos that don’t match in style or appearance.
Why do I want an album or other products?
There is no sense in spending thousands of dollars to have me photograph your wedding or event and not do anything with the images. It is for this reason an album is included in all our wedding and event packages. Your album becomes your first family heirloom and with all the cover options, we can create an album as unique as you. The album is just a starting point as we offer a large variety of products to display your artwork in your home. We do offer a custom USB drive and box, and it’s quite good looking, but I doubt you’ll want to hang it on your wall to show off to your friends.
Why “Silver Gecko”?
I wear a silver gecko necklace that I’ve worn everyday since the mid 90s. It has picked up its own stories over the years and many people associate with me. I also didn’t like the sounds of “Adam Parth Photography”.
