• Frequently Asked Questions •
Q: Do you require a deposit or signed contract?
A: Yes, I require a non-refundable deposit of 1/3 the package price at the time of contract signing to reserve your date.
* Example: Wedding Package A at $800 would require a $266 deposit via cash or check on the day you sign the photo contract either in person or through the mail.
Q: When does the total cost of my wedding need to be paid in full?
A: The total cost of your wedding, including any additional fees for a la carte options or travel reimbursement is due no later than the day of your wedding.
Q: Do you charge extra for travel?
A: I will travel anywhere in the world. I do not charge extra for any wedding under 90 miles from where I am located. (Huntington, WV)
Q: Can appointments be arranged to meet with you and talk about our wedding?
A: I would be more than happy to meet with you in person and discuss your big day.
* I actually prefer to have a face to face meeting, that way we can get comfortable with one another and you can get a better idea of the way I work. Arrangements can also be made to meet online via Skype or Google Hangout if necessary.
Q: Will we get images on a disc?
A: All packages include either a USB drive or DVD containing fully processed high-resolution digital files.
Q: Are we able to print our own photos? (Walmart, Office Depot, Kinkos, Online, etc...)
A: Yes, all packages include a reproduction release that allows you to print the photos anywhere you like.
Q: How soon after the wedding can the bride and groom expect to see the initial images?
A: In most cases, the bride and groom can expect to see their initial images within 2 weeks following the wedding.
* A few of my favorite photos will be available for sharing via facebook and other social media the day after your wedding!
Q: How long after the wedding does it take to receive our entire package?
A: Delivery time varies depending on what month you get married. December through May weddings can expect to have their images within 4-8 weeks. June through November weddings will be delivered 8-12 weeks after the wedding. Because I will shoot 75 percent of my jobs June through November, delivery time is longer during those months.
*Additional time may be needed when ordering custom books and albums.
Q: Do you allow other people to take photographs while you are working?
A: For the most part, there is no problem with friends and relatives taking photographs.
Q: Do you bring backup equipment?
Q: Are you insured?
Q: Will we have a great time and wish the day would last forever?
A: Absolutely, and you'll have a ton of awesome photos to remember the whole day!
