QUESTION

We're ready to book our wedding! Now what?

ANSWER

A non-refundable retainer of $750 and a signed contract secure your wedding date. You'll be able to sign your contract and pay your retainer with a bank transfer or credit card all online. Bank transfers take less fees so it's always appreciated but never required. Whatever is most convenient for you is encouraged to keep the booking process super quick and easy!

The remaining balance will be due in full six weeks before your big day.

Three months out you receive a wedding day timeline guide if you need any help building your timeline. Six weeks out you receive a final questionnaire asking for vendor information, a timeline, and a suggested list of groups for the group photos.

Editing time for a wedding is 4-6 weeks and an engagement session is 2 weeks.

QUESTION

What should we expect for our engagement session?

ANSWER

Engagement sessions can last 1-2 hours.

Engagement session time isn't taken out of your wedding day coverage.

It's really just an excuse for us to hang out and you get pretty pictures out of the deal.

There are no limits to wardrobe changes (but if you bring ten of them we might need to have an intervention).

We just adventure, get to know each other, and have fun.

For all couples that decide on an engagement session, you receive an engagement session guide to help you prepare!

QUESTION

What about things like albums, canvases, and prints?

ANSWER

If you order product separately or have it included in your customized collection, sales tax will apply.

If you have an album credit included, all changes to the original design will need to be submitted within thirty days

Albums are where most of my couples spend extra so go in with that in mind. It can either be a highlight reel or tell the full story of your day

QUESTION

Help!  I'm awkward in photos!

ANSWER

I got you.  Just focus on having fun and I'll take care of the rest!  I hate super posed photos...you hate super posed photos...it might get a little weird but we're going to roll with it and have ourselves a good time.  What really matters most is marrying that super hot spouse of yours and being present and connected with the people you love.

QUESTION

You've never worked at my venue, is that going to be a problem?

ANSWER

Nope!  I'll send you galleries or blog posts of similar venues as examples.  If scheduling and travel allow, sometimes I, oh so briefly crash the rehearsal to scout the venue and check in on you.  If not then I arrive early the day of your wedding to take a look around.

QUESTION

Is it extra for travel?

ANSWER

Anything within a driving distance of two hours is included because let's face it, California has traffic everywhere so you shouldn't be blamed for that.  After that a flat fee of $50 will be added up to four hours.  If additional travel is needed, a fee for a hotel room will be added on so your photographer (hi that's me) doesn't die trying to get home.  If a wedding requires a flight then the cost is added on a case to case basis.

QUESTION

What systems do you have in place to back up photos?

ANSWER

This is an excellent question!  During a wedding the majority of the camera bodies will be using dual card slots which means that there are two sets of cards with your photos just in case one fails.  All memory cards are kept on my person to prevent theft until I arrive safely home.  After a wedding your photos are immediately imported to two external hard drives.  The first external hard drive goes into a fire proof safe and second is used to edit.  The memory cards from your wedding are then organized and set to the side as a third backup to be formatted only once your wedding gallery is delivered.  The backup of your wedding is kept for six months.

QUESTION

How long does my gallery remain online?

ANSWER

Your gallery is online for sixty days.  You will need to download your photos before that time.  I recommend you backing them up to a two locations just in case AND ordering prints, canvases, and albums.  Technology can be a jerk so I always recommend being extra cautious.

QUESTION

Do you have insurance?

ANSWER

Sure do!

QUESTION

Will I get all of the RAW files?

ANSWER

All galleries are culled and edited and delivered as a complete story of your wedding day.

QUESTION

Do I get a copyright release?

ANSWER

All galleries come with a print release.  As is the law, copyright remains with the photographer.

QUESTION

What camera gear do you use?

ANSWER

Fancy professional Canon camera bodies and prime lenses that each cost more than my first car (I cry a little inside if I think about it).  Backup camera bodies, lenses, flashes, batteries, and memory cards are brought to every wedding as an added precaution.

QUESTION

Do I NEED a second photographer?

ANSWER

So this question has a lot to consider.  Do you have multiple locations throughout the day or is everything at the venue?  Are you having a wedding with 150 guests or more?  Is the venue super spread out?  Does your budget have the room to add an additional photographer?  You may or may not need a second photographer so that's why we chat about your wedding and really look at what your needs are personally.  Galleries are sent over to compare what a wedding would look like and help you feel comfortable if you decide on one photographer.

QUESTION

How many images will I receive?

ANSWER

Roughly 50 images per hour worked for one photographer and roughly 75 images per hour worked for two photographers. Give or take. This depends entirely how crazy we get.

QUESTION

Where are you located? Do you travel?

ANSWER

I'm located in Redlands and typically serve all of Southern California but have traveled often for weddings. Since I'm from the mountains, most of my weddings are in Lake Arrowhead, Oak Glen, Temecula, Big Bear, Lake Gregory, and Redlands. But so far I've gone to New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington for weddings.
