Q: Can you tell me about the packages you offer?
A: We know how frustrating the whole process of wedding planning is so we keep things as simple as possible. You can find more about our packages here: Packages and Pricing
We understand that you need to invest in what is most important to you. Just keep in mind that since your images and albums are the only things that remain after your wedding day, you might want them to be really, really amazing. There are no do-overs in wedding photography. If your wedding photos end up anything less than awesome - they’re going to be less than awesome for your entire life.
Q: Do you create albums?
A: We definitely do! Our albums come in a variety of sizes and styles to suit every couple. We personally create each album so that they are customized specifically for you.
Q: Can I customize the package further?
A: Bridal sessions, albums, additional photographers, prints, save-the-date cards, thank you cards, and a variety of other products can all be added on an a la carte basis as desired.
Q: What is your photographic style?
A: Terms of photographic style are practically meaningless anymore. If you've viewed our galleries and our images speak to YOU then you’ll know it’s YOUR style. And that’s what’s most important. Our style is really all about the REAL you and telling your story. We just don't fit into the old school mold of photography "style" because honestly, that just limits a photographers creativity!
Q: Why should we choose you?
A. Photographs are important to you and you want killer wedding images.
A. Our images call to you in a certain way - you love how they appear more alive, more creative, more fun, more… something. And you want that.
A. You are one of those people who hates your picture taken so you want to hire someone who makes it easy and fun.
A. You are the type of person who wants your photographer to give you one-on-one personal attention from start to finish.
A. Meeting with your photographer at a cool local bar and enjoying an adult beverage is what you consider an awesome meeting.
A. You think that most wedding photos look pretty much the same & you want something far better - something more original - something more you.
A. You understand that the person you hire is going to be an integral part of your entire wedding experience and you want someone who can actually put you at ease, make you laugh and add to the awesomeness of your day.
A. You like dogs. (It may seem strange, but we feel a strong connection here. Face licks rock.)
A. You’re fun. (Another amazing connection - fun people choose to hire us because we are fun too. Laughter is the best medicine, afterall!)
A. You love our work. (And if you love our work, you will also love us!)
Q: You say that the personality of the photographer is important. Why?
A: Keep in mind that you’ll be spending almost the entire day (the most hectic and emotional day of your life) with your photographer. You want to feel comfortable around and supported by this person. You want someone who knows when to take charge and when to be invisible. Think of it this way...your caterer drops off food and leaves; your baker drops off your cake and leaves; your music provider shows up and plays music and leaves; your officiant plays an important part in your ceremony but then he/she is done; but your photographer is with you ALL DAY LONG and your relationship with your photographer lasts long after your wedding day! You definitely want to "click" with your wedding photographer.
Q: And afterward the wedding?
A: Unlike most wedding professionals that you’ll deal with, our relationship continues well after you’ve returned from your honeymoon. You may never speak with your florist, caterer or band after your wedding day, but your work with your photographer has only just begun. The album and print process continues for awhile. Besides, our goal is to be your photographer for life and we tend to build long lasting friendships with all of our couples.
Q: I hate posing for pictures. Do I have to pose?
A: We actually make it fun so you don't even think about posing.
Q: The people in your images always look like they’re smiling. Do you tell them to smile or do you just find super happy people?
A: Our clients are smiling and look like they are having fun because they ARE having fun! We won’t tell you to smile, but we will make you smile and probably laugh a lot too :) There’s a big difference.
Q: Do I get my digital negatives?
A: We don’t offer our RAW files for a few reasons. First and foremost, the majority of people wouldn't have any way to view them in that format. And honestly, if someone did have the ability to open and process the RAW files, we want to ensure that any images that represent us are truly exceptional. You hired us to process and edit your images and provide stellar results, which we will do so there's really no reason for you to do it too!
Q: Can I make my own prints?
A: You can do pretty much as you like with your final images. However, there is a huge difference between a print that you make at your local printer from a proof and those that we have professionally printed for you. Local/one hour printers do not change their color profiles so your images will likely come back with either blue or green tones in them. But of course, the choice is up to you.
Q: Do you travel?
A: Absolutely! We have covered weddings in magnificent locations worldwide from Spain to Canada; and in several different states within the US. Have passport – will travel for weddings anywhere!
Q: Do you do video too?
A: At this time, we don't. However, it is on the horizon so depending upon the date of your wedding, we might be able to change this answer!
Q: This FAQ goes on forever. Does it ever end?
A: Eventually. But if you’re still reading you must really dig this kind of stuff and that’s why we’ve provided so much information. Just to make people like you 100% comfortable.
Q: I really want you, but you’re out of my budget, what can I do?
A: Decide what's REALLY important to you - keeping in mind that the photographer actually CREATES the long term memories that you will have of your wedding day. Then go ahead and make some creative adjustments in your budget :)
Q: How do I hire you?
A: A signed agreement and a retainer of 50% are required to reserve the date for you. Dates are filled on a first come-first served basis. So don’t wait. We book some weddings as far as 2 years in advance. So really, don't wait.
Q: Can I make an appointment to meet with you?
A: Absolutely. However, if you're considering other photographers as well, we strongly advise you to meet with them first. Then you'll have a basis for comparison so you can better appreciate the differences in what we offer.
Q. Where can I find reviews from your other couples?
A. Well, they are right here! Reviews
Q: What if I have questions that aren’t listed here?
A: Well there were a lot of questions listed here, but if we still didn't answer something, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you and maybe we'll add your question to this long list of FAQ's!
