Frequently Asked Questions

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

What can we expect from you?

Many things!  Once you sign a contract with us, we will be only a text or a phone call away from answering any questions.  We will confirm one week before the event date to make sure all the information we have is up to date.  Anything that can help us capture your natural moments will be suggested for your event(s).   We will also ask you for your taste & style.  Some examples are moody and airy.  Clients should be able to choose the type of photography done for their big day, in our opinion.  We will become part of your event and try to make you smile, but naturally and when you are not actually looking at the camera.  If a pre-wedding shoot is included in your package, we will suggest several locations for you to choose from.  You are also welcome to pick a location of your choice.  Our goal is to capture as many natural moments as possible and put them together and deliver in a story-telling theme.  Help us achieve our goal as we work with you on your big day.

Do you provide RAW copies of the images?

We do not provide RAW copies since you are hiring us for our artistic touch on your images.

What's in your camera bag?

We use only high-end camera equipment that give the sharpest results.  Please see our complete blog what’s in my camera bag to learn about our photography equipment.

What other types of events do you do besides Weddings?

We do engagements, bridal showers, birthdays, family portrait sessions, maternity photo sessions, newborn photos, seniors proms, senior portraits, and any event that requires a professional photographer.

If we book early, what type of discount can you provide us?

Excellent question!  Please contact us & we can certainly provide something that will make you happy.  If you book your wedding a year in advance, we can provide a FREE pre-wedding shoot for 60 minutes (based on your selected wedding package).  We can provide more details upon receiving your signed contract with a deposit.

How do we reserve a date for our event?

Simply sign the contract provided to you & email back to us.  We also require a deposit to reserve the date in advance.

Anything else we need to learn from you about our big event?

Once you sign up, we will go over the checklist for your big day.  We request that we are provided one designated person in charge for your big day for easier and constant communication.  We also request enough space around all the important events so that all the photographs are captured in real moments.  (camera phones, friends and family taking pictures with their cell phones, videographers cooperation needed).

Do you use second photographer?

Many times, we receive multiple inquiries for the same wedding date.  Some weekends are more popular than others.  I will be your primary photographer, but depending on the event, if a second photographer is needed, we will have one.  We have a team of photographers with great experience.  They have completed many weddings with me and they are highly skilled.  My team photographers only take photos at weddings.  All of the post-processing editing is done only by me.

How are our photographs delivered?

We will give you a timeline of delivery depending on the type of event.  Wedding photographs are generally delivered in 8 to 12 weeks.  A sneak peek will be available within one week.  My goal is to bring them to life with my best imagination and  make sure all the details is covered.  The high-resolution photos will be delivered with a one-click link to download from our secured website.  The albums can also be ordered upon request.  Please ask for details.

Do you provide videography / cinematography services as well?

Yes, we do videography / cinematography as well.  Our videographers and/or cinematographers are available along with our team of photographers for all your one-stop needs.

Do you know of reputable make-up artists, DJs, hanna experts (wedding vendors)?

We have worked with many wedding vendors that can be recommended.   Please review their work and ask us more about their style.  We are also collecting information of well-known wedding vendors as we come across to help our clients.
