What package do most couples choose? Most couples want to have memories of - morning prep, ceremony, formal shots & reception. I typically recommend premium or platinum for those that want a more complete array of photos, keeping in mind that the formal shots typically take 1 – 1 1/2 hours (depending how creative you want to be!). For those that don't want to take as much time for the formal shots and plan on having the first dance, cutting of the cake and Father/Daughter dance, all at the beginning of the reception - the basic can work. The basic package (with no additional hrs added) is more for those that are interested in keeping the investment down and a little less concerned in the amount and variety of photos they receive.
Do you require a deposit prior to the wedding? Yes, please. I ask for 1/2 upfront (typically at the time of the engagement shoot – if applicable) and the remaining half is payable before you receive the download.
Do I need to pay you to book the date? A simple verbal confirmation will suffice for me to mark the date. Once we meet prior to the wedding, we will take a look at your plans, sign paperwork and brain storm with your ideas. I try to keep it as easy and low key as possible. I know planning a wedding can be stressful enough, you don’t need red tape from your photographer too!
After my wedding, how long before I receive the pictures? You will have a preview of some of them within a few days on Facebook. The final delivery will depend on the package chosen. More hours at the celebration will mean many more images. I will sort through all the photos for quality control, bring natural enhancements to the post processing and deliver the final product to you. Typically, this process will take 4- 6 weeks (8max). I stay in contact with you during this time to let you know how the process is going and I will usually give you a one- two weeks notice for the final delivery date.
If I choose to skip the Engagement Shoot in my package, is there a discount? The engagement session is a free service. It will not affect the price of the package. I encourage you to take advantage of this shoot! In addition to receiving some crazy stellar images, this shoot lets us get to know each other better before your big day. You become comfortable in front of my camera and I am able to find out more about you as a couple: what makes you work together, moments that are special to you, and other knowledge that is crucial in helping me create images that move your soul. The session is very beneficial in helping you to relax and trust that you made the right decision for your big day!
How do I use my printing credit with you? Easy! Once you have the USB, I have a backup of the exact same images in my portfolio, with the exact same file names. Just let me know what picture and what size and I will take the cost off your tab! You can also use the credit towards canvas wraps, photo books and other specialty items! All items are produced by a professional lab for the best quality. Proudly printed in the US.
I am having a small private ceremony planned, but I would still like the event documented – do you offer custom pricing for smaller events? Yes! A small intimate ceremony, with a few family members should still be remembered! Simply contact me with what you have in mind and I can send you a custom quote!
We hope this information helps! If there are any other questions that are not covered in the FAQ, please feel free to let us know!
