HELLO,      


        I'm Norm Roberts the Fifth, a photographer and adventurer who has been photographing weddings professionally for more than eight years. For me, photography isn't a means to a paycheck, but a method of artistic expression. There simply isn't anything better than photographing a couple madly in love. That passion drives me to do whatever it takes to bring your love story to life. You'll find me happily driving long mountain roads, wading through freezing creeks, trekking down winding canyons, or climbing gnarled oak trees to find the shot we envisioned. All of this is to create images that convey your sense of adventure with intimate emotion. If you have a touch of wanderlust, are artistic souls and would like a photographer as adventurous as you are, send me a message and we'll plan something wonderful.

FREQUENTLY ASKED

 

QUESTIONS

Q: How long have you been shooting weddings?

A: I photographed my first wedding back in 2009 and have since covered more than forty weddings. I find the demanding nature of the profession to be wholly enjoyable, there’s nothing quite like beautifully capturing a moment you know your client will cherish for a lifetime.

Q: Where are you located? 

A: I live in the Long Beach/ Los Angeles area of California. I provide service to all of Southern California without additional travel charges. 

Q: Will you travel?

A: Without hesitation, yes! This world is far too beautiful and I want to see it all so I’m more than happy to come explore your neck of the woods.

Q: What’s your style?

A: For the most part I stick to a photojournalistic approach. capturing real moments and emotions. That being said, my favorite part of photographing weddings is the romantic portraits of the bride and groom. Utilizing advanced lighting techniques and posing to creating stunning images that would be just as at home in magazine as on your wall.

Q: Do you have Backup Equipment?

A: I have back ups for every piece of equipment I own. No matter what happens, your wedding will be photographed without compromise.

Q: How soon will the images be ready?

A: Within a week you’ll get a chance to see a sneak peak on my blog, or on facebook. As for the rest of the images, my turnaround time is within eight weeks of your wedding.

Q: Can we print our images?

A: Yes, I provide a print release with all my wedding packages. For smaller print sizes most printing places will do an adequate job, but I do recommend printing through your online gallery for anything larger than an 8x10, as it utilizes one of the top professional print shops in the US. At a price slightly above what you’d pay at Costco you get unparalleled quality. 

Q: How long will our online wedding gallery be up?

A: Forever. I will never take down your wedding gallery, so you can always view, share and order through it. Immediately after I photograph your wedding, I backup all the digital files to multiple drives and cloud services ensuring they are secure forever. Since I never get rid of any of my photographs, and have multiple back ups, If you ever lose your wedding photos I will happily make a backup available to you. Your precious memories will never be lost

Q: Do you offer engagement sessions?

A: Yes, and I feel it’s one of the most important factors in beautiful wedding photography. It gives us a chance to get to know one another before the wedding. The more comfortable you are working with me, the better your photographs will be. To help with this, I include an engagement session with every package.

Q: Can you work with our budget?

A: It’s hard to give a definitive answer for this. My recommendation is to contact me; I want you to get the best photos you can and will work with you to make sure that happens.
