We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you have other questions, feel free to send me an email at [email protected]. You may click on any one of the questions in the “Index of Questions” for a shortcut to the answer.
How many photos do I get?
Typically it’s 50-100 retouched images an hour. Mainly the photos that get taken out are any photos that are completely technically wrong for any reason, blinking or “in-between faces”. I prefer to give you quality over quantity.
How long will I need to wait to get my images?
Typically it’s a 1 week turn-around time for engagement sessions and bridal sessions. For an entire wedding it’s a 3 week turn-around time for your digital files. You get full resolution images as well as copyright so you can print as large and as many times as you like. Prints, enlargements, and albums are ordered as soon as they are finished and selected. Delivery times depend on the printing company.
How many hours of coverage are suggested for a wedding?
For a wedding, between 8-10 hours is suggested. Between detail photos, candid portraits, ceremony, family, bride and groom photos, reception details, and the reception itself, 8-10 hours seems to be the best amount of time to get the full coverage of the day.
Do I need an engagement session?
An engagement session is a great way to get beautiful photos for such things as invitations, save the dates, sign-in board, social media announcements, and photos for montages. It’s also a great way to get to know your photographer, and be comfortable with each other before the big day. On our end, it helps us see what your best angles are and get familiar with the style of photography you enjoy the most. I recommend 3 hours with 2 looks. One look can be more casual with that beautiful afternoon look, while the second look is a little more dressy with the photo shoot going into the evening.
Do I need a second photographer?
A second photographer is recommended. Although all our lead photographers pride ourselves on being very attentive, a second photographer gives you that amazing candid second angle. It’s also highly recommended when you don’t want to see each other before the ceremony, so both the bride and groom get plenty of coverage
How does payment work?
Payment works as follows: 25% is due upon signing the contract. 75% is due up to the day of the wedding. Cash, checks, and most major credit cards are accepted.
