WHAT IS YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
I am a mixture of two styles, mainly Photojournalistic.. This means that I mainly focus on capturing moments as they happen and really the true story of your day. I encourage you to go about your day as if I wasn't there. However, I do offer subtle direction such as "turn towards me a little more", "can you put your shoes on here instead?", "Straighten out your back" etc.... little changes that will make a huge difference on your portraits. I should mention I love black and white photography, and deliver all my candid portraits in black and white, which is considerable portion of your wedding collection.
WHAT DO YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES INCLUDE?
Best question EVER! How much money are you spending on your wedding??? You rather not think about it, right? Wouldn't you hate to have spent so much money, and put so much effort on creating the most amazing day of your life just to have your images buried on a drive somewhere and never see them? oh! the horror!
We L-O-V-E to see your images displayed and have created packages that ensures not only that your images are beautifully displayed, but also that they last you a lifetime! All our packages include beautiful, BIG ready-to-hang canvases, and Albums. We carry beautiful High-End Albums and amazing Luxury Albums with custom design, sizes ranging from 8x8 inches to 12x12 inches. Other products available to add to your packages are Folio Boxes and Wooden Boxes (perfect for engagement and bridal portraits), Custom USB drvies, and HD Slideshows on Custom USB drives, Save-the Date's and Thank-You Cards.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS DO YOU WORK WITH?
All our packages include two photographers. However if your having an intimate wedding, with small wedding party and less than 100 guests, you have the option of booking just me.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEDDING RUNS LATE?
We would never jump ship on you! I have an overtime rate in the event that you ask us to continue coverage past our scheduled time. You will be billed for the additional time after you return from your honeymoon. Rate will includes myself and second photographer.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Yes!!! I am available to for destinations weddings anywhere in the US. Because of two beautiful little ones at home, I am not available for destination weddings outside the US at the moment. .
DO YOU PROVIDE THE DIGITAL FILES TO THE CLIENT?
Yes! All our packages include digital download of all your proofs web sized for easy sharing. You will also receive high-resolution digital copies of all images used on your products.
WHY DON'T YOU OFFER JUST DIGITAL FILES?
You spent A LOT of time planning your wedding, and you have spent A LOT of money on this one day. However, the reality is that after your day is over, the cake is gone, the gifts are opened and used, the wedding dress gets buried in your closet and the only thing you have left to show is your wedding photography. By printing our images, we are able to guarantee they will make your time and efforts justice. Our high-quality products will last you a lifetime and will keep this important day present in your every day life and you can one day pass them on to your children. On the other hand, digital files that get forgotten inside a drive somewhere on your desk. Also, we want you to be happy. Because printing quality varies from lab to lab, we cannot guarantee that your digital files will produce quality products when printed somewhere else. Another reason is that we want your products to look beautiful, so to that end, we will fully retouch and enhance the images used to create your products. It would take so much time to fully edit and enhance all the images on your wedding collection that it would raise the price of your package through the roof! So though digital proofs are edited, they're not fully retouched and enhanced. See the image below:
However, we do understand you want to be able to share your images online and use them on your devices. So all our packages include a proof download of all your images, as well as high-resolution copies of all images used to create your products.
CAN SOME OF OUR PHOTOS BE DELIVERED BOTH BLACK AND WHITE AND COLOR?
I love black and white, so you can expect to see a lot of black and white images on your wedding collection. We don't offer the option of changing how an image was processed once your wedding collection is created and all your images have been processed. If black and white is not your thing, please let me know before hand so I can keep that in mind when processing your wedding images. Either way you can rest assured that I will choose the best option for your image.
DO YOU PROVIDE UNEDITED IMAGES?
Nope, sorry! ;)
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK OUR WEDDING?
ASAP! To be fair to all our lovely couples, we cannot hold dates. We book on a first-come-first-served basis. So if you absolutely love us and could not live if we didn't photograph your wedding, book us right away!
HOW DO WE BOOK?
A non-refundable 30% deposit is due in order to sign contract and reserve your day. I strongly recommend we do this in-person, but it can be done online as well if it's more convenient for you.
CAN YOU HOLD A DATE FOR US?
Unfortunately not. In order to be fair we cannot hold any dates without a deposit.
WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept cash, check, debit or credit.
WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT SCHEDULE?
After your deposit has been made, the remainder of your package balance is due two weeks before your wedding date. We also offer a payment plan that will put you on a monthly schedule.
DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE A MEAL FOR YOU?
Unless you want me to pass out in the middle of the dance floor! We are usually with you since your preparation and don't get a break until mealtime. Although we might not look it, we are human as well and get super hungry! So we recommend that you provide a meal for us. It doesn't have be the same meal you provide for your guests, most caterers offer a special meal for vendors. We do require though that we are fed at the same time you are. This will ensure that we are done at the same time you are and don't miss any amazing shots! If a meal arrangement is not available, the photographers will take a 30-45minute break to get food while everyone else is eating.
DO YOU PROVIDE OTHER SERVICES SUCH AS VIDEO AND PHOTOBOOTH?
Not at this moment.
