Here are a snippet of some frequently answered questions I tend to get during client meetings! Enjoy!
1) My venue is dark. Is this going to be an issue?
No. We are equipped with professional external flashes to compensate for dimly lit venues. In addition, our cameras and lenses have low light capabilities to be able to photograph in situations where we may not be allowed to use flash, such as a place of worship with strict rules. Actually most images you see on my site will be lit with some sort of off camera light!
2) Do you touch up all the photos?
We will cull the images and select the “best of”. This means we remove any images where you are not looking your best, so you probably don’t want too see these! haha…
We’ll include basic touchups such as adjusting for white balance, skin tones and highlights for those selected images that are delivered to you. Images selected for your album may receive extra touch ups if necessary. If you have a special request such as removing a bridesmaid’s tattoo, that is considered a custom edit and is quoted separately.
3) How many hours do you suggest that we need?
Our average my clients usually books for 8. If you desire a creative night portraits, like a sunset or if your ceremony and reception are at two different locations we recommend that you book at least 10 hours.
After we learn more details about your wedding day we will be able to give you a more specific recommendation on coverage.
4) How many images do we receive?
Since every wedding is different, we do not guarantee a set amount of images. There are several factors that affect the amount of images shot at your wedding including the amount of hours you have contracted us, activities you have scheduled, length of speeches, how many guests his the dance floor and the number of people in your party.
As a guideline you can expect approx. 25-40 images per hour of service that you contract. If you have two photographers the number increases to approx 45-60 images per hour of service.
5) Can I show you samples of photos that I like?
It is helpful to understand the images that represent the style you are looking to achieve in your wedding. Try to find images on my site you love and let me know why! Photographing to look like another photographers work is never very successful, just like handwriting we all have our own signature style and its something you shouldn’t forge, did your teacher really believe that was your parents hand written note to get you out of PE…..?
You may e-mail some sample images that you like or send us a link to your pinterest planning board. We do our best to repeat some images, normally with a different twist, but do not guarantee specific shots.
