How much time should we set aside for photos on the wedding day?
I can’t stress enough the importance of scheduling adequate time into your day specifically for photographs. I guarantee doing so will leave you much happier (and less stressed) with both on your wedding day itself and the final results. Specifics time frames vary depending on how the day is scheduled, but I would recommend allowing
- At least 30 min. of the bride and groom alone
- 1 hr + for formals of the wedding party
Side Note: Let your wedding party know in advance what the game plan is. Some party members may have never been in a wedding before and may not realize that you would like them to be somewhere at a specific time before or after the ceremony.
Can we customize a collection if the ones you have don’t fit our needs?
Of course!!! One size definitely does not fit all, and I’d be more than happy to meet with you and go over your wants so that we can create something genius together.
Can we meet you in person before hiring you?
Yup! Actually I encourage all of my couples to meet me in person before booking. It’s a great way to see if we are a good match because, after all, I WILL be glued to your side your entire wedding day.
What are you looking for in a client?
Ideally my clients are head-over-heels in love. As in for real, truly madly deeply, get-lost in-one-another’s-googley-eyes passionate about each other. Love is the most incredible and joyful thing to photograph, and paired with some killer style and a fun-loving attitude…Hello, you’re my dream client! So basically if you’re a classy couple, in love enough to get married, I’m 100% positive we’ll get along!
Do you travel? What are your fees?
Of course I do! Simply contact me via email for a detailed price quote based on your specific destination.
What do we have to do to reserve our date?
All I need is a signed contract and 25% deposit. This deposit is applied toward your final balance.
What is a “First Look” and why should we consider doing one?
A First Look is when the bride and groom sneak a peek at one another just prior to their ceremony. He is seeing her as his bride for the very first time.
It’s typically a private moment that REALLY helps calm any nerves and sets a beautiful tone for the rest of the day.
Also, I should mention that it results in UH-MAZING photographs, and comes very highly recommended.
However, I completely understand my clients who decide to stick with tradition and forgo the First Look. No grudges I promise!
How many digital negatives can we expect from our wedding?
Depending on how much of your day I am hired to shoot, you will receive anywhere from around 200-500 images. I should also note here that around 80% of your photos are in color and the remaining 20% are in black and white.
What exactly does it mean when you say we get a “Flahsdrive of all of the edited images”?
I currently deliver photos to my clients using digital negatives (which are the fully edited photos from your wedding day in a digital JPG format). They are given to you on a USB flash-drive. With the usage-release detailed in your signed agreement, you are given rights to use them for personal use. You can make unlimited prints and photo products, post your images to blogs, Facebook, Instagram, etc. You just aren’t allowed to edit, modify, or sell them.
How long do we have to wait before seeing our FABULOUS photos?!
For all portrait sessions (i.e engagements, bridals, etc) you can expect a maximum 3 week turnaround.
I guarantee wedding day images no later than 6 weeks after your wedding date.
Can we be friends?
Oh can we please?!!! Let’s start here!
