CAN WE MAKE SUGGESTIONS ABOUT HOW WE WANT OUR PHOTOS?
Absolutely! Wed love to help you personalize your images by incorporating your suggestions, ideas, and preferences as guidelines. Together we will make sure we capture all of your preferred shots!
WHAT IS AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Some couples like to have a professional photograph to put into the newspaper for their engagement announcement. Others like to display a large print of their favorite engagement photo at the wedding reception others print a guestbook filled with their engagement photo images and have wedding guests sign it. I enjoy engagement sessions because it’s an excellent opportunity for me to get to know you and see what you like and what you don’t like. It’s a great practice run before the wedding so you can see how I work.
I FEEL KINDA AWKWARD IN FRONT OF A CAMERA, WHAT DO I DO?
You’re not alone. Most (and I really do mean most) people feel uncomfortable having their picture taken. Before your wedding I will sit down and discuss wedding photography and posing with you. Most of the pictures from your wedding will be candids (taken as events occur, with no posing). At your engagement session I will assist and coach you regarding all the ins and outs of photography on your wedding day. Most brides and grooms find this extremely helpful.
CAN I SEE MY WEDDING PHOTOS ONLINE?
Yes, we post your photos to a private online gallery where you can download and share your photos. Guests from out of town can even access this gallery and download photos from there too!
DO YOU TOUCH-UP OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?
Yes. Some people call this photoshopping, I like to call it perfecting. All photos are professionally processed by Lead Photographer Brad Hughes.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU TAKE AT A WEDDING?
I do not limit the number of photos I take at any wedding but I average about 40-60 photos per hour.
DO I HAVE TO BUY THE DIGITAL FILES?
No. You will get your selected high-resolution wedding photos on disk so that you may continue to print and distribute what you wish for friends and family. I will also include low-resolution copies so you can easy post them to Facebook and email them to guests and family.
DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
I am happy to travel as I always look forward to new locations!
CAN YOU SUPPLY THANK YOU CARDS or INVITATIONS?
Yes, you can select an image from your wedding day which will then be printed onto a card to send to all your guests.
WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?
Depending on the amount of coverage, most couples will receive their wedding photos within five weeks. I also feature some highlights of your wedding day on my blog within seven days after your wedding.
WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT SCHEDULE?
A retainer is due at the time of signing of the wedding contract. The remainder is due in full 14 days prior to the wedding by cheque, PayPal or all major credit cards.
OK, I LOVE YOUR IMAGES, NOW WHAT?
Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and well set up a meeting. Ill bring a portfolio of my images to look over and well chat! Consults are no obligation.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
Beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
DO YOU DO WEDDINGS OUTSIDE OF VANCOUVER?
Yes! Travel anywhere in the Lower Mainland is included with your wedding photography package. We also travel national and internationally.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?
An 8 hour package will net you more than 500 final, and fully edited photos. The exact amount depends on a lot of dynamic circumstances.
