Photo Facts and Questions
Q. Do we get to meet the photographer who will shoot our wedding and see their work? A. Absolutely. We are not a “photography-broker” like some companies in town, who “match you with the best possible photographer” (in other words with some freelancer looking for a last minute gig!) a few weeks before your wedding. Our studio has two photographers and you will meet with us during the consultation. All the samples on our website is our work!
Q. Is there an advantage of getting photography and video from the same company? A. Photographers and videographers from different studios, usually compete with each other for a shooting position or time with the bride and groom. When you hire a company that offers both services, the photographers and video crew have worked with each other many times before and know how to balance the requirements of each art form.
Q. “Photojournalistic” or “traditional?” A. We listen to the client about which approach to favor. There are times during the day, like the ceremony, when we can only shoot “photojournalistic.” But if the client requests traditional posed shots, we will pose the couple by themselves and in group shots. We always pre-scout the venues. so the day of the wedding we come prepared with locations in mind for posed shots, while at the same time we keep an open mind for spur-of-the-moment, fun shots. Take a look at one of our gorgeous albums for a complete wedding coverage.
Q. When do we get our pictures? A. We usually deliver your pictures two weeks after the wedding (sometimes during the high-season it may take up to three weeks, but very rarely longer than that).
Q. Do we own our negatives? A. Absolutely! The price you pay for any package includes ownership of your “digital negatives” on a DVD (from your wedding and engagement). We can make custom prints for you for very reasonable prices if you’d like, but again, that is YOUR choice.
Q. Do you put our photos online? A. Yes, we upload your photos to the proofing section of our website. There you will have password protected private access to your photos for viewing or purchase. Our print prices are very reasonable and it’s a great option for distant friends and relatives. Again, it’s your choice.
Q. What’s the cost of an engagement session? A. It’s actually free, as long as you come to a location close to us.
Q. Do you offer coffee-table style wedding albums? A. Actually, we specialize in them! We offer the best-looking, best-priced coffee-table style albums in the business. Designed by the owner who is a graphic designer, they also have what many of our competitors’ albums often lack: truly elegant page layout design.
Q. How do we book your wedding services? A. A $500.00 nonrefundable deposit with a signed contract is required to book your wedding date. The remaining balances on the entire package are due two weeks before your wedding date. You may reserve your date as early as 2 years in advance or at the last last minute! (please contact us to see if your date is open).
