We have shot at hundreds of venues, so there is a good chance that we have. However, if we have not, we will get to the venue early on the day of and be sure to perform a thorough walk-through to scout out the best photography locations. We also do extensive online research prior to your big day!
Is there a style or quality difference among the photographers?
No. We take every measure to ensure consistent style and quality among our photographers. We have developed the unique style you see in our work over the years. Each shoot is reviewed to ensure our quality and style are consistent. All mistakes, no matter how minor, are scrutinized by the team. We trust that the quality and style of photography you receive will be consistent. However, we do tailor our shooting style and techniques to our client requests. For example, some clients may prefer a light and airy look while others may prefer dramatic lighting and shadows.
Do you deliver every image you shoot?
No, we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.
Do you edit the images?
Yes we do. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Many photographers will not post produce any images, or will only post produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography flaws.
Which photographer will be shooting my wedding?
You may request to meet with a specific photographer; otherwise, we’ll make the decision based on personality, availability, and your referral.
Do you provide partial day coverage?
We typically do not provide partial day coverage on weekends during peak season (May through October) On weekends, in the off season we can offer this service based on date and availability.
What if one of my vendors wants some images to show off their work?
We do make our images available to other vendors. The vendor must contact us directly to discus usage and licensing fees if any. As our clients you receive a personal use license of the images. This does not allow you to give the images to other vendors directly.
Can I make my own prints?
With your coverage you receive personal printing rights of the images from your wedding. You may make , albums, prints, canvas prints etc.
What if I have a blemish on my wedding?
Don't worry when you submit you choice of images for your book or order prints from us, we retouch the final images before they go to print.
Do you provide the RAW files from my wedding day?
Each of our packages comes with a full resolution image download. However, we typically do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots because we believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, we’re often shooting with the end (post-produced) product in mind. However, on occasion, we may provide RAW images along with our post-produced JPG’s for an additional fee and restrictions.
