Frequently Asked Questions


After photographing 200 couples, we're always here to answer any questions you have!

The wedding industry is pretty exclusive for lots of reasons, will you shoot OUR wedding?

No matter where you’re from, who you pray to, what you weigh, who you voted for or who you love;  your story and legacy as well as the depth of your relationship and those in your lives are what matter to me most. If you’re down with Mason Photography, we’d gladly shoot your wedding!


How would you describe your style?

The biggest thing I care about, more than flowers or table-settings is your story. Who you are, how you got there and how everyone in attendance at your wedding plays a role in your life is my biggest priority. I primarily love a journalistic style as I’m with you most of the day with some creative portraits and moments throughout the day.

How do we book & pay?

Once your contract is signed and a 50% non-refundable retainer is paid, your date is reserved and you’re booked! Everything’s online!

Do you have any limits on coverage time or the number of photos taken on the wedding day?

We never put any limit on photos taken. Most of our clients need between 9-14 hours of coverage depending on logistics of the day, ceremony happenings and how much they love photography.

How many photos do we get?

There are never any limits to how many images we deliver, but we typically deliver 50-100 photos per hour of wedding coverage depending on the size and scope of the wedding day.

How do we get that fancy wedding book you made?

My Wedding Guide is for every Mason Photography couple whether in Washington DC or elsewhere! Once you book, one will be on your way including preferred vendors and timeline help for the best light and photos.

What is your favorite part of the wedding day?

This sounds cheesy, but after shooting 150 weddings, I can honestly say my favorite part of any wedding day is the emotion. Whether it’s tears or laughter, hope or sorrow from the memory of a family member who couldn’t be there, that’s where the best stories are! Those moments happen throughout the entire day! My priority is being there when they happen.

We're looking for more DC Wedding Vendors, can you recommend some?

You bet! All of my wedding couples get a curated list of my preferred vendors!

Do you travel for weddings?

Absolutely! Don’t let distance cause you to hesitate one bit. I’ve shot in 17 different countries and 49 states (Looking at YOU Alaska!) for clients and love new scenery! We can even work on logistics of costs together.

Are all of our photos edited?

Color, exposure, and composition will be customized just for you with the Mason Photography look and feel you see on this website.

How do we receive our photos?

You’ll receive fully processed high-resolution JPEG images 1-month after your wedding via an online gallery (#NerdAlert!). The gallery provides a place for you and family to order professional prints as well as have access to your photos around the world! You can download these files too! Technically, they’re still “owned” by me, but again you’re welcome to download and use them as much as you’d like.

Do you take wedding day family portraits?

Of course! Before your wedding day, I’ll help you build a list that contains all the family members you’d like in formals, without taking away from the wedding day.

Can my guests take photos during my wedding ceremony?

We’re huge fans of the intimacy and intentionality of unplugged weddings but they’re not required.

Do you have insurance?

Yes! Let me know if your venue needs my info.

I’m a photographer and you seem cool. Can I shoot/assist with you sometime?

I give away everything I know on The Bearded Tog podcast which comes out weekly! You can also book a One on One Session with me or sign up for Long Term Mentorship
