Wedding Photography F.A.Q.
Questions and Answers
Q: Do you shoot alone?
A:I bring an assistant along to weddings as it allows me to concentrate all my time with you and less time fiddling with equipment and lighting. The assistant also carries a professional camera to capture candid style photos during formals, different angles during ceremony etc. I have 3 assistants that I work with and they work during the ceremony and formal photos.
Q:After the wedding, how long does it take to receive our photos?
A:You will get to see sneak peak photos within a couple days after your wedding. In order to carefully edit all of your photos, I take my time to make sure everything is perfect! It takes approximately 2 – 3 months from the wedding date to deliver all digital files.
Q: How many images do you deliver?
A: This is highly dependent on the events of the day, the amount of hours covered etc. but most weddings receive anywhere between 400-600 photos.
Q:Will we get digital images?
A: Yes you will! With every package we offer, we include all digitally enhanced photos in high resolution. This means you have rights to print unlimited prints at ANY size, including your own canvas prints if you wish.
Q: Do you bring backup gear?
A: Always. Minimum two camera bodies, multiple lenses, and multiple lights. My camera even has the ability to back-up photos instantly to a second memory card inside the body.
Q: Do you have insurance?
A: I do. I carry a 2 million dollar liability policy. Some venues or shooting locations require insurance to shoot on their property. Let me know if you need proof for your venue.
Q: Do you eat with guests?
A: Absolutely! Unless you want to put me with other vendors, it’s completely up to you. The only request is that I am close enough to you and the dance floor that I can jump up when something happens between courses (like speeches and kissing games).
Q: How much time should I set aside for formal photos?
A: The formal portrait session generally takes place in several stages. Family portraits are kept slightly more traditional, while the bridal party and Bride and Groom portraits are usually a bit more playful and contemporary. The portrait session is one of the most essential elements of your photography, so the more time which can be put aside the better. The key is not to rush this stage so that you don’t feel any added stress, as being more relaxed will translate into better images. The amount of time set aside for portraits varies according to family and wedding party size, venue and the structure of the day. Once I know the details of your event we’ll work together to set aside an appropriate amount of time to achieve the images you want.
