Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! We are a husband and wife photography team with a 5 Star Weddingwire rating with over 50 reviews!
We hear from our brides that the most important thing for them is to have access to ALL their images, so we first start with an hourly rate that includes a totally "retouched" high resolution disc or flash drive with all your images with reproduction rights. By retouched I mean I soften skin, remove background distractions, make a mix of black and white and color images and even add a dreamy effect on to a couple of the romantic poses. With a 3 hour coverage you get both my wife and I as photographers. She stays with you from the time we arrive until you go down the aisle. If you do 6 hours of coverage or longer you also get a free engagement session also on disc OR a free 16x20 wall portrait!
Our brides LOVE this next part. Immediately after the wedding I email you about 12-14 images for you to share on social media while I finish the rest which takes about 2 weeks
When I'm done with your images I upload them to a private section of our website and email you a link. Only those you share this link with can view the photos. You can also share faves, leave comments and even download photos from here (if you wish). I can set it to view only as well.
Your disc or flash drive will be ready shortly after you see them online. I have attached a photo of the album your disc comes in and a photo of the flash drive and decorative box. Which one you get depends on how long we are at the wedding. Usually if we go over 6 hours at your wedding we use a flash drive.
If you want an album we have several different sizes and styles of albums to choose from. These are the popular custom designed coffee table albums with both parent sized and bridal sized albums. This is optional!
We have found that a six hour coverage is about right to cover everything from a dress photo before you get dressed to the cake and garter ceremony! That's for one location! After the cake and garter it's just dancing and that all looks the same. Unless you are having a grand exit with sparklers, etc. then you may want more time!
To book we email you some papers to fill out and return to us with a deposit. When I receive them I sign the contract, scan it and email you a copy for your records. The balance is due 2 weeks prior to the wedding. At that same time we visit on the phone and go over all your final details.
I hope I answered most of your questions but let me know if you need more info.
