WHAT TO EXPECT
Once we receive your inquiry via contact tab, we will promptly say hello, send our investment information and glady answer any of your questions within 24 hours! After that, there’s the option to chat over Skype, over the phone or in person at a local cafe over coffee if you’d prefer! When you’ve made the decision to book with us, we will email you a contract to fill out and mail back with your deposit, which holds your date on our calendar and goes towards your remaining balance. The remaining can be paid either monthly or 4 installments. The balance must be paid in full 30 days before your wedding date.
THE WEDDING DAY
We will be covering the full day for you! A full day is from the time the bride’s hair is finishing up to when we pack up and head out after all the events at the reception are over and dancing has been going on for a bit. Portraits: the most underestimated time in any wedding! It can take over an hour to photograph portraits of your family, bridal party and most important; bride and groom. If you’re planning on going off-site or traveling for them it can take even longer, and we suggest blocking off 1.5-2 hours between your ceremony and reception. This is not an exagerration! We ask all of our couples to prepare a shot list prior to the wedding date. This will be a complete list of all the images you want us to capture of your family & friends during the formal portraits. We will need to decide where this will take place as well- we’ve found the most convient place is the grounds of the cermony site. The hardest part of family photos is getting so many people to stay put- hunting people down takes up WAY too much of this time. We want to get these photos done as quick as we can. Please try to plan for your reception to begin about 1.5 hours after your ceremony to allow us this time to photograph. Again, it will be so worth it in the end when we don’t have to rush!
AFTER THE WEDDING
Within 4-8 weeks of your wedding, we will have your images edited, up on your own viewing gallery, packaged and on their way to you! Promptness is incredibly important to us, but since we typically take between 3,000-5,000 images on your wedding day (holy cow!) and have the time consuming job of uploading, selecting & editing roughly 700 images- it takes us a bit to carefully and thoughtfully complete your collection. We’re working as quickly as we can to have everyone’s photos done in order. I promise the wait will be so worth it in the end! SPECIAL TIP: This will be one of the most memorable days of your life! Try to leave stress behind and absolutely enjoy your day! Your wedding is of celebration between you, your sweetheart and loved ones and it’s going to go by in the blink of an eye.
