Frequently Asked Questions for Photography
What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We offer professionally edited color, b & w images and on select images, I just love to add a 'vintage-tone' to some. You have the "rights" to own all the images that come in your wedding package.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Is your media preference film or digital?
How many photographers do you work with?
I always bring a 2nd, professional photographer with me to weddings. This is so we can capture different angles and different areas simultaneously.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, of course ;)
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No, never. I want to be able to give my bride the attention she deserves from the point-of-booking to her actual wedding day. I only book 1-2 weddings per month but prefer to only book one. It is my 100% intention to give my clients ample customer service and amazing photos.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes. I will make sure to use a professional photographer with my same style of photography if I become too sick to be there that day. Let's hope that doesn't happen ;) But if it does, I am covered!
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I shoot with all Canon cameras, Mark ii and Mark iii, prime lenses & 2 sets of flashes.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I can do both.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, it depends on the existing package as I would pro-rate the hourly rate per what she paid in her package. It usually comes out to be less expensive to book more hours.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Taking a break is rare, only if we need to use the restroom. And that is why having a 2nd photographer is key ;) We don't miss a moment!
Do you charge for travel?
Depends where the travel is but if out-of-state, yes, understandably so ;)
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
6-8 weeks, sometimes sooner!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
I upload them to an online gallery so that you have that gallery to send to your friends and family. Soon after I mail you the DVD with your high-resolution photos.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The dvd is theirs to own, forever.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, but I always get the brides permission first.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Will images be available for viewing online?
What kind of albums do you offer?
Professional handcrafted, custom designed Leather Craftsman albums.
When will the client get the final album?
Approximately 10-12 weeks after they provide me with their favorite photos of choice for the album.
