Wedding F.a.q.


Questions? Wondering about the specifics of our wedding photography? Check these out and see if your answer lies below. As always, if you have other questions, feel free to contact us.

 

I don’t see specific pricing or packages; how can I get an idea of what you charge and what you offer?

We understand the stress of finding a qualified photographer for what may be the most important day of your life, and because of this, we prefer to build custom packages for each couple. This allows us to remain flexible to be able to help you create a package that suits your needs, fits your budget, and makes sure you get exactly what you’re looking for from your wedding photography. We can do anything from a simple beach wedding with a handful of guests all the way up to a smashing multi-day wedding gala, and we like to approach each wedding in an individualized way when it comes to pricing, prints, and packages. We do not charge by the hour; instead, we build custom packages based on the size, scope, and feel of what your day will be. Just send us a quick e-mail to get the process started and we will be happy to take it from there.

Do I have to pay a deposit to hold the date of my wedding?

Yes, you will have a deposit due upon signing the contract to secure our services for your wedding; generally, the deposit is equal to 1/4th of your total fee. Your deposit is non-refundable and will guarantee that we will book the day for you and be available for the specified time frame of your wedding. We only book ONE WEDDING PER DAY, so your deposit ensures that we will be committed to you and only you on the day of your event. We will also provide you with a copy of your contract that will be signed by both the couple and our company, outlining the specifics of your package and services.

I would like to pay for my wedding package in installments; is this a possibility?

Definitely. We can work out an installment plan with you and bill you in stages to make paying your balance a little easier on the pocketbook; you always have the option of paying in full or paying in stages, whatever works better for you. The only stipulation to this is that your full balance is due no later than two weeks prior to your wedding. We do not charge an installment fee or interest and we won’t penalize you for paying off your balance early, either, so you can rest easy knowing that paying with an installment plan won’t cost you anything more than paying it all at once.

How long after my wedding will it be before I can view my images?

We’ll begin working on the post-production process as soon as we’re through with the wedding itself and normally we’ll put images into your private viewing gallery in stages as they are ready. Generally, we will begin sharing previews with you a few days after your wedding, and it will be roughly 6-8 weeks before you’ll have your entire completed album. The 6-8 week estimate is fairly standard turn-around time for us, but this can fluctuate depending on our schedule and workload; sometimes it’ll be faster than that and sometimes a touch longer, but not to worry, we’ll be in contact with you on the status of your album throughout the process. Of course, the size and scope of the wedding does play a part in the amount of time it’ll take for your album to be completed, and we prefer a very ‘hands-on’ approach to editing something as important as a wedding, so we can assure you that while it’ll take a bit of time for your album to be 100% done, you can be certain that the utmost care and attention to detail is going into the process of preparing your images for viewing.

I’m interested in adding a session to my package for engagement/bridal/trash the dress/boudoir photos. Do you offer the option to add these services if I’m also hiring you to photograph my wedding?

Absolutely! If you’re interested in any of these extra photo sessions, they can be added to any wedding package, and in many cases, we’re happy to offer a slight discount on the fees for these sessions when they’re booked with a wedding package, so you’ll save a bit versus booking them à la carte. For more details, just let us know what services you have your eye on when we’re working on your wedding package info with you.

Can our child/children or dog/cat/other pet be involved in our engagement photography?

Sure! We’d be happy to incorporate your kids or pets into some of the photos during your engagement photography. We only ask that if you don’t plan on having them in ALL of your photos from the session that you bring a friend or family member to help take care of them while we’re working on the photos that will include just the two of you.

Do you offer photo albums, invitations, guest books, or print packages for friends and family?

We are happy to offer custom photo albums as well as engagement announcements, “save the date” cards, invitations, photo “thank-you” cards, wall portraits, and additional print packages; for specific pricing on these items, please contact us or ask during your consultation. These products can be ordered à la carte or worked into any wedding package.
