You have questions, I have answers.
For your convenience, the following are some questions that I frequently receive from interested clients and my responses. If you have a question that isn’t addressed here, by all means, let me know.
Wedding Photography FAQ
How long have you been a wedding photographer?
I have been photographing weddings professionally for seven years. In that time, I have had the privilege of immortalizing more than 100 happy days through photography!
What is your wedding photography payment schedule?
A non-refundable retainer of 20% of the wedding bundle price is required immediately in order to confirm my services for your wedding date. The balance is divided into two equal portions of 40%, the first of which is due 90 days before your wedding date, and the second due 7 days before your wedding date.
How long after the wedding day can I expect to receive my wedding photos?
In two to three weeks after your wedding date, you will receive access to an online gallery featuring a sneak peek of edited photos from your wedding day. Then, withing 8-12 weeks of your wedding day, you will receive all of your edited wedding photos.
Are you willing to provide all unedited (or “raw”) wedding photos?
I do not deliver raw, unedited images available to my clients. Editing is the key final step to my finished product, and results in the hallmark look that is my signature. I therefore will not permit my unfinished work to be made available to my clients to remain unfinished or be finished by another party.
Furthermore, throughout a wedding day, I take any number of images that aren’t intended or fit to be delivered to my client. Examples include test photos that I take for lighting purposes, duplicate photos that I take in bursts during periods of fast action, group photos where people have their eyes closed or unflattering expressions, etc. However, I don’t throw away good photos. Each of my bundles has a minimum number of photos that I guarantee will be delivered; however, I will edit and deliver all of the photos that meet my standards, even if it well exceeds the minimum that I promised.
Do you feature wedding videography as well as photography?
Wedding videography is a rather different discipline than photography, and I have chosen to focus only on photography. However, I can refer you to videographers that are masters of their craft.
