Q & A

{  Some answers to all of those questions you might have or questions you didn't know you had.  }

 

How soon can we see our photos?!

We know how incredibly excited you are to see your photos, and we are too!  Within a day or two of your wedding or engagement session you can expect to see a few pictures on our Facebook page (so make sure to follow us) and within 2 weeks we will have more pictures on our blog for you to check out. On average you can expect to receive all of your edited, high resolution image files within 8-10 weeks of your wedding. For engagement sessions we will send you the link to your online gallery for download of your edited, high resolution image files within 3 weeks of your engagement session. 

What is the online viewing and purchasing gallery?

All of your photos are uploaded to a password protected online gallery that can be shared with family and friends. By sharing your gallery link and password with others they will be able to view and purchase your engagement or wedding images. This gallery is made available to you for up to 12 months after your wedding. Click here to view examples of online galleries. { Please note that these are only example galleries as we keep our couples' actual wedding and engagement galleries private and password protected. In an actual gallery you would also be able to click and purchase prints, but we have this feature disabled in the example galleries. }

Can we print our photos ourselves? 

Yes. In all of our wedding collections you will receive the edited, high resolution digital files that you can print for personal use. 

Do you offer wedding albums & professional prints? 

Yes! We strongly believe that your photos should not just sit on a computer or USB drive!  Our albums are such a beautiful and timeless way to share and relive your story for generations to come. They are clean, modern, and really pretty. You can check out some album pics here! Professional prints are available from the professional lab that is available through your online viewing and purchasing gallery. 

How do we receive our high resolution files?

For engagement sessions we will send you a link which will allow you to download all of your edited, high resolution files. Easy peasy! :)

Since there are a lot more images for a wedding day, we will send you a USB drive containing all of your beautiful, edited, high resolution files. We strongly recommend making multiple back up copies of all of your images once you receive them. 

Do you have insurance? 

Yes! Sometimes venues will require proof of insurance in order for us to photograph at their venue. If this is the case just let us know. 

DO YOU CARRY BACKUP EQUIPMENT?

Always!!!

What is required to book your date?

To officially book your date we will mail you a wedding photography agreement to fill out, sign, and return with a retainer of 50 % of your total collection cost (photography collection + tax). Your date is not officially booked (can be booked by another couple) until these items are received. 

When should you book your date? 

After you have secured your wedding venue & date it's important to book your photographer. You don't want to risk losing your favorite photographer by waiting to book! For weddings we book anywhere from a few months to 1-1.5 years in advance. For questions about availability please contact us

Your date is booked! What happens next?

Once we have received your wedding photography agreement signed by both the bride & groom to be and your retainer, your wedding day will officially be reserved. If an engagement session is part of your collection you should start thinking about dates and possible session locations. In the months leading up to your wedding we will check in with you periodically just to say hi, see how your wedding planning is going, and remind you that we are here to answer any questions. As you begin to plan the events of your day definitely keep us posted so we can work with you to ensure that there will be enough time for the types of photos that you want. Approximately 5 weeks prior to your big day we will be in touch with a questionnaire that will give us all of your specifics about your big day and help us properly coordinate photos. It will also allow you to list any specific, important photos you want taken. Remember we are always here to answer any questions….before and after your big day!
