Planning a wedding and selecting the right photographer can be stressful. To help you make the best decision for your special day, I have compiled a list of FAQs. If you have any additional questions or want to inquire about availability, send me a message here.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would you describe your style?
I aim to provide a blend of posed, editorial-style shots and candid, photojournalistic photos for a balanced selection. If you prefer more of one or the other, let me know! I like to cater to exactly what you are looking for. My photographic style is classic and timeless, with true-to-life colors that are neither overexposed nor dark and moody.
Would you recommend a 2nd photographer?
I highly recommend hiring a second photographer. Having an additional photographer will allow for more diverse angles and perspectives throughout the day, as well as a larger selection of photos. They can also assist with setting up shots and help ensure that the day runs smoothly and efficiently. Even for smaller weddings, a second photographer can be a great asset. I am also happy to shoot your wedding solo if that is more your style.
How soon will we receive our images?
You can expect to receive your images approximately 3-4 weeks after your wedding date. I prioritize editing and delivering your photos as soon as possible, while still maintaining high quality standards. Rest assured that I am eager to share your images with you and am committed to getting them to you in a timely manner.
How do we book you?
To book us as your photographer, you can either fill out the contact form here, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by reaching out via phone/text at 805-586-2980. During this initial contact, we can discuss the collection that best fits your needs and go over the details of your event. Once I have a clear understanding of your needs, I will send you a contract to review and sign, and a 25% deposit will be required to reserve your date. After the contract is signed and the deposit is received, your date will be secured.
Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured. If your venue requires proof of insurance, I will be happy to provide it to them.
Can I customize a package?
Yes, absolutely! I am happy to work with you to customize a package that meets your specific needs and budget. If you need multiple days of coverage, want to mix and match elements from different packages, or have any other specific requests, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know. I am here to help you create the perfect package for your event. Just reach out and we can discuss your needs in more detail.
Should I make a shot list?
It can be helpful to make a list of specific shots that you would like to have, especially if there are any unique elements or surprises at your wedding that you want to make sure are captured. A list of family members for photos can also be useful to ensure that we don’t miss anyone. However, I encourage you not to get too bogged down in a lengthy shot list. As experienced wedding photographers, we are accustomed to capturing all of the important moments and details of your day. Trust us to do our job and allow us the flexibility to capture candid moments as they happen.
What exactly do I get?
Each collection includes approximately 75-100 edited images per hour of coverage. For example, an 8-hour wedding would yield around 600-800 edited photos. All images are hand-edited to ensure the highest quality, with no presets or batch edits used. The images will be delivered to you via a downloadable online gallery that you can share with friends and family. You are welcome to print and reproduce the photos as much as you like.
Why should we hire you ?
There are several reasons to consider hiring me as your photographer. Firstly, I specialize in creating timeless images with true-to-life colors and added vibrance that are trend-proof – the style won’t look dated in the future. I hold myself and my team to high standards of quality and consistency, so you can expect to receive a wedding gallery with hundreds of images that look exactly like what you see on my website. Additionally, if you want to see more examples of my work, just ask and I would be happy to provide additional samples. I am dedicated to creating beautiful, high-quality images that you will cherish for years to come.
What do you mean by trend-proof?
By “trend-proof,” I mean that my photographs are not influenced by short-term trends that may quickly go out of style. My style is neither over-exposed and desaturated with muted colors and blown out skies, nor is it dark, moody, and dramatic with muddy colors and dark shadows. Instead, I strive to capture the true colors and mood of your wedding day, with accurate hues and natural lighting. Some things that never go out of style that you can always expect from my team and I – composition, attention to detail, and memories captured.
