Q ~ What is the average cost couples spend on weddings?
A ~ Currently, most of our clients spend around $3,200-4,500 USD on full wedding photography packages or $1500-2500 USD on elopement packages. This amount includes full day coverage (8 hours for weddings, 3 hours for elopements), digital negatives, portraits, and an album.
Q ~ How do you typically photograph a wedding?
A ~ Our full wedding packages include eight consecutive hours of coverage. We start with capturing the bride preparing to get dressed, reception area, the processional, ceremony, reception and family and friends portraits. However, you are free to decide how you want to use the 8 hours of photography.
Q ~ Why purchase a wedding album?
A ~ A Wedding album is a beautiful documentation of your special day that can be viewed and treasured for many years. Many times we hold on to images on a CD or disk without ever printing or displaying them. A photo album is your keep sake that allow you to re-live your special day.
Q ~ Can you meet with you before making our decision?
A ~ Yes, I often meet with clients to allow them to get to know me and to learn about my clients. It is important to establish a level of trust and expectations before the wedding day. If possible we will set up an in-person meeting, or we can set up a Skype webcam chat at a time that is convenient for you.
Q ~ How long will it take to see my photos?
A ~ Turnaround time for portrait sessions is usually 2-3 weeks. Turnaround time for weddings is approximately 3-4 weeks. Portrait sessions can be turned around as quickly as the next-day in emergency situations (for example, last-minute bridals or engagements) but rush prints may be subject to an additional rush fee.
