How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
We ask our local clients to book us at least 3 months in advance, however, we totally understand that couples may want a photographer sooner. If that is the case, email us ASAP so we can make sure to photograph your big day! For our destination weddings, please book at least 5 months in advance so we can organize flights and hotels for our team. But, hey! If you have two flights booked & a hotel room for your wedding next week and you want us there, then you can bet our passports and bag will be packed in five minutes!
Do you charge a travel fee for destination weddings?
We love to travel, and are always up for a little adventure- just let us know where you plan on going and we can discuss any travel costs that may be associated. As of Fall 2018, we have packages for destination weddings that include travel.
Do you have a second photographer?
Yes! All our weddings include a second photographer to ensure all your memories are captured.
Can I tell you what to take pictures of?
Absolutely! We are here first and foremost for you! Let us know what are crucial pictures for you. Especially, if there's something unique to your culture that is a part of the ceremony. We come with our own list of pictures that we plan to take so trust me, it is no problem to add your requested shots to our list.
When will we get our images?
A week after your wedding we will send you sneak peaks that you can share on social media. 6-8 weeks after that, we will have your images ready! Really, we always end up getting them done earlier, so just let us know if you have a preferred time you would like to have them done by! We offer expedited image delivery for a confirmed 4 week delivery. It will appear as an option when you receive your quote, so if that interests you, then be sure to check that off!
What is your team's wedding day attire?
We promise to dress to the 10's! For the first half of your wedding day, we are in dressy casual attire because we have to run around outside and inside. Then, for the ceremony and reception we wear formal dresses/skirts.
I have to have you! How do I book?
Oh my gosh, yay! I am so excited & beyond honored to be your official photographer! Head on over to our contact page and fill out the form! You can also contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, DM us on social media, or shoot me a text!
What is your payment schedule like?
On the day that you book, we ask for a retainer fee to secure our services. Each service will require a different fee. For weddings we will collect the rest of the payment prior to your wedding day. For all other sessions, a retainer fee is always required and then a few weeks before you will receive a reminder to pay the remaining balance. If you still have questions please don't hesitate to contact us!
What is your photography style?
We want to deliver bright & airy photos. I actually used to shoot in film and transitioned over the years to digital, but edit my photos in a manner that still resembles the classic film style. Which means, creamy skin tones, bright light, and swoon worthy pinks and muted greens.
Can we book you for our rehearsal dinner?
Yes! Rehearsal dinner investment starts at $700 and your images will be delivered via an online gallery or on USB with your wedding photos. You can hire us only for the rehearsal dinner or add it on with your wedding package. Those who book us to shoot their wedding will receive a discounted rate for rehearsal dinner photography and any other wedding festivities they need images of.
Can you work with our wedding planner to create a timeline?
Absolutely! We will create one either way based on what you tell us at your consultation and what you've filled out in your questionnaire. You can find this timeline as an additional purchase on your invoice or find it included in the wedding collection you've purchased.
Do you do first looks?
Yes, we love first looks! We don't require our couples to do a first look because we want to honor traditional practices. So it's totally up to you if you would like to have one or not! We will provide you with the pros and cons at your consultation (although, many of our couples know early on what they want) and then, we let you decide.
