Here are some of the questions that we get asked on a regular basis, along with our responses.  For a more detailed list of questions to ask photographers please see the Things To Ask Photographers section of our website.  If you would like to know our answers to those questions just give us a call or set up an appointment.
Do you shoot color or black and white?
We shoot everything in color and convert about one third to B&W, Sepia, etc. Additionally, we keep the original negative so we can always reconvert any image to whatever style you’d like to order it in.
 
Do you touch up all the photos?
Yes.  Everything has been completely edited and retouched to a proof level finish.  We then choose the best 100 images and retouch those to our signature level. Additionally any prints (5×7 or larger) that you order, or album images will be touched up to the signature level as well. For you visual folks out there please feel free to give us a call or set up an appointment, and we can go over it in more detail and provide some visual reference.
 
How many proofs will we receive?
An 8 hour wedding equals roughly 350 to 400 proofs.  We find it is the perfect amount, it tells the story of the day, gives you fun bridal party shots, creative portrait shots, fun candids, and photo booth (should you opt for a photo booth) without being overloaded with a bunch of extra stuff that all looks the same, and just adds to your confusion when choosing prints for your albums, wall art, etc.
 
Can I see a whole wedding?
Yes. Yes. Yes.  This is something you should ask any photographer you are considering.  This step is paramount in making sure you understand and are comfortable with the quality of coverage and images that you will receive.
 
How do we secure your services for our wedding?
A $1000 deposit will hold the date.  The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding.  We happily accept cash, check, credit card or pay pal.
 
"Words can't express our gratitude for everything you two have done for us.  We will never forget the experience of getting engaged & married.  Our engagement photos are breathe taking.  Your generosity & creativeness did not go unnoticed.  Our wedding photos were everything we had imagined & more.  We feel very blessed to have met two wonderful friends through this whole experience.  You knew exactly what we were looking for when we opened our beautiful proof box.  We were impressed with the colors of our box, as they were perfect, but then to open our box & see the most amazing pictures, that was unbelievable.  You have an amazing gift.  We didn't know we could look so good.  Honestly, we received so many wonderful compliments on our pictures & on how great you were at the wedding.  Hands down, we would recommend you to anyone.  You do fantastic work & we can't thank you enough.  Thank you for being so talented."
