FAQ’s are frequent because they are important.
It’s a lot to read, but it’s important to know what you are getting out of your wedding photographer.
Delivery Time: I deliver wedding galleries within 4-6 weeks. Standard time in the industry is 8-10 weeks. I am are pretty proud of this turnaround – who likes waiting long? #NOTME. It’s not that I rush the editing, I just photograph correctly + do not depend on editing to make the image better.
Video Info: I deliver a 4-6 Minute Highlight Reel. Examples are under the “video” tab on the website. I also give you ALL THE RAW FOOTAGE of the entire ceremony, speeches, first dances + cake cutting (this RAW footage reel is about 1 hour long). As much I wish I could deliver video as fast as photo, it’s not possible. Video is actually 10x more time-consuming in the editing process. I have to watch all the footage, edit out the bloopers, sync audio, put clips together to tell the story properly, find the right music, etc. I deliver video within 10-14 weeks.
Do we get all of our photos? All of the great ones, absolutely. The only photos I do not deliver + edit are mid-blinking, blurry or unflattering photos that I know you won’t have any desire to print/have. My average delivery is 400-700 photos. But I do not put a cap on how many. Sometimes I deliver over 1,000 photos! It just depends on how long I am hired for, if you hired a second shooter, and how much goes on come wedding day. I do not send you any RAW (un-edited) photos – you are hiring me for my editing style and trust that I send all the right photos.
How do you deliver photos? Online Gallery with full High-Resolution photos. No watermarks or logos will be on the photos. I will give you a download code so you have full access to your pictures and you can share/print away.
Do you have past reviews from other couples? Yes! All of my reviews are on my website, FaceBook page, + The Knot! Here’s a link to all of them:
How do I book? After you inquire, I will send over an official quote that fits whatever package that works for you like best. Following will be the contract + wedding questionnaire + that’s it. There is a %50 Non-Refundable Deposit due within 10 days of accepting your quote. That deposit reserves your wedding date in my calendar + will remain open to all other prospective clients until paid. The balance is due 30 days before the wedding. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeasy.
Do I meet with clients before booking? Yes totally. If that’s your thing. Or we can FaceTime, chat on the phone, or just communicate via email + wait to meet each other on your wedding day. I’ve done them all, but have to say I really do love the “getting to know” process with all of my couples. Follow me on Instagram also to get to know me better! I will certainly keep in touch often and am always easy to get ahold of through email or phone call.
Are you able to work with budgets? Money is never easy to talk about, but I strive to make it transparent and open for communication. I am a full-time photographer. I don’t have a 401k or health benefits that come with a corporate company. I have to pay for everything out of my own hard earned money/pocket. I am receptive to work with budgets (and I always try too!), but also still have to make a living.
Can we see a full gallery? Of course! Head to the Collections tab + have a peek.
