SOME HANDY INFORMATION
I DO NOT RUN BY THE HOUR (WEDDINGS)
Because we all know some weddings don’t always run exactly to schedule, so I am not going to leave until we have all the shots we want, and that you are you completely happy. But if you need a rough idea, usually I like to stick around for 6 to 9 hours.
I DO NOT SHOW YOU OR GIVE YOU UN-EDITED IMAGES
Some photographers will be happy to give you all the RAW (and rough) images of your big day. I do not like to give them for the simple reason that I like to apply the best lighting, bring out the best editing to only show you the best images.
I supply high-res images that you’re able to print and share online. You will be able to print the images up to 11”x14” (approx A3 size). And I will also provide you with web-friendly images so you can share them wherever you want. You will be granted a usage license of images to be used for personal use only.
I do not watermark the images Your images are meant for printing and they are yours. So they will not be watermarked.
There is no limit to the number of images that you will receive, but to give you a general idea it will a minimum of 300 edited photos for weddings, 130 for family sessions, 100 for commercial. But I usually exceed that number by the double!
KNOWING THE LOCATION
I like to scout the location prior to the wedding or family sessions. This helps me to know where the best light is, and for weddings, to spend less time on portraits and group photos. Knowing how and where I will take for group and family photos on the day reduces the time you’re away from the party!
I charge 1/3 of the total fee as deposits. This ensures that your date is booked (so I won’t be taking any other bookings that day). Once the deposit is paid, it is deduced from the total amount (it is NOT an extra fee). The booking deposits are un-refundable.
TURN AROUND TIMES
The times between your event and when you receive your photos/video vary depending on how busy the month is. At the busiest times, you may have to count about 6-8 weeks to have your photos/videos back to you. Count 3 weeks extra if you also ordered an album. In the least busy times, count 2-3 weeks.
