Before Your Wedding
A: Wedding dates are usually booked a year in advance. Depending on the specific time of year, this time frame can vary from six to eighteen months. June and September tend to fill first. Click here to check current availability. We want to provide top quality service, therefore we limit the number of weddings we book.
A: Yes. We like to meet each couple at the site of the ceremony, reception, or both, about a month prior to the wedding day. This gives us the opportunity to determine the best location for formal pictures as well as review a timeline of the wedding day.
A: We travel anywhere in the world! Any distance beyond 120 miles from our location requires overnight accommodations.
A: A $1,000.00 deposit is required to hold your wedding date. This is fully refundable up to 60 days prior to your wedding date. The balance is due no later than your wedding date.
A: Money orders, cashiers checks or personal checks.
Your Wedding Day
A: The amount of time needed varies based on the size of the wedding party and the number of extended family pictures desired. Smaller groups average forty-five minutes. Large groups may take an hour and fifteen minutes. Communicating with each person to be photographed is the key to making this time effective and efficient. Formal pictures are typically taken between the ceremony and the reception. Occasionally, clients choose to take formal pictures prior to the ceremony.
A: We usually arrive about an hour and a half prior to the ceremony in order to take the "getting ready" pictures.
A: A typical wedding ranges from 1,000 to over 3,000 pictures. This varies based on the number of hours, the location, and what happens throughout the day.
A: Digital. It provides a significant advantage over film with regard to how images are shared and processed.
A: All pictures are originally taken in color. Using photo editing software, any picture can be converted to black and white. Pictures are subjectively selected to be converted to black and white. You receive both the color and black and white versions on the DVDs.
A: Yes, click here to view some samples.
A: Yes. We travel with backup cameras, lenses, flashes, batteries and chargers. We wish we also had a Sherpa to carry all our gear.
A: Depending on the package you select, we usually stay for the whole event.
A: Yes. We are typically seated with the other vendors (DJ, wedding coordinator, etc.). If you are not able to provide us with a meal, you must let us know in advance so that we may plan accordingly.
After Your Wedding
A: We work hard to provide you with a quality product in a reasonable amount of time. For the 2010 wedding season, our average has been less than two weeks for online proofing.
A: Approximately six months from your wedding date.
A: As soon as your images are posted online, we order your printed proofs. We usually have them in the mail less than a week later.
A: No. The DVDs are provided at the same time the proofs are delivered.
A: Yes. Additional sets of personalized DVDs are $39.00 each.
A: Although we don't set a deadline for ordering albums, I recommend within a year.
A: Yes. This is addressed in the contract. A print release is also provided with the DVDs.
A: Typically 700-900. This includes a "Best Of" gallery that coincides with your printed proofs, ranging from 150-250 pictures.
