INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
we can provide color, sepia tone, b&w images and our exclusive "art filter" techniques, which make each image special and different.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We use primarily natural lighting when possible, which mimics what the human eye sees. When needed we use on camera flash.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We are all digital, which means unlimited image capture for our weddings.
How many photographers do you work with?
Martin Whitton Photography has numerous 2nd shooters on staff who are skilled professionals in the field of wedding photojournalism. Martin Whitton is the primary shooter at all weddings.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, Martin is the primary shooter at all weddings.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We only book one wedding per day, and only 2 weddings per weekend during high season (May/June).
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes. I have several skilled photographers who are available to take the primary photographers place if an emergency occurred.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
My equipment is very mobile. 2-3 cameras, 4-6 lenses, flashes, batteries, etc. All professional equipment that makes my job easy and makes my clients look great!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Of course. I have backups for all my equipment. This is one thing that separates a true professional from a "weekend warrior". We know how important your wedding is and we're there as professionals to capture each moment, not as a 1st time, experimental photographer.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We have 5 great packages to choose from, all of which you can customize to fit your big day. Check out our website at www.mwwphoto.com
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Additional coverage is $200/hr. Normally we're able to avoid extra charges because we create a wedding day photo schedule for our clients which maps out the entire wedding day, hour-to-hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I take a couple of short breaks. Most of my past clients would tell you that I am on the move, constantly photographing during the event.
Do you charge for travel?
If your event is more than 60 miles from Central Austin, Texas there will likely be a small mileage charge. If your event is a destination wedding, we normally include travel/accommodation expenses in your destination package price.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We normally post around 100 proofs to our website for family/friends to view within 2-3 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Proofs will be on our website as .jpg images. You will receive 2 CDs containing 200-300 full-sized images.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The CDs our clients receive contain hi-resolution, full-sized images, which you can print or do with as you like.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Photographers always retain copyright for images they capture. However, we provide you with 2 CDs, full of high-resolution images and a copyright release form, which allows you to print/use the images as you wish. We don't believe in restricting use of something you pay for...
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
In our contract our clients simply agree to allow us to use any photos we capture in our advertisements or sample albums. If you desire more privacy, we will do what we can to accommodate your wishes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
We provide you with 2 CDs: one color and one with b&w images.
Will images be available for viewing online?
We normally post around 100 proofs from your wedding to our website for family/friends to view within 2-3 weeks.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We have partnered with a fantastic album designer called Asuka Books. They offer elegant, modern books that allow for lots of personalization.
When will the client get the final album?
If you choose to order an album, we usually tell our clients that it takes approximately 4-6 weeks after the order is has been confirmed.

Martin is a pro- I didn't even notice him half the night as he was constantly moving around taking pictures. When I got them back, I was like "I didn't even know he was there at that moment!" He caught a lot of great candid shots.
He is very easy to work with and non-imposing. He did lots of shots of the decorations and site on his own.
I really like that you can get the CD's of all the pictures to make prints from- that is a huge value to me. My only reget is not hiring a professional to do video, at least our pictures are great!

Martin was an outstanding photographer. He was very professional with the pre-event meetings, and was able to cater to our needs during the entire event. He was easy and fun to work with. He understands what it takes to obtain the perfect picture and is very flexible when it came to any special requests. The pictures were beautiful, and my husband and I could not be happier.

Martin did an amazing job on our engagement photos and wedding day photos.
He has very quick email and phone response and a flexible schedule for meetings and photo shoots. He is very nice and easy to get along with. At my first meeting with him I explained to him that my finacee does not photograph well and that he REALLY was not excited to do pictures. Martin took this challenge head on!
First with making a very casual meeting where he brought along his wife. Second with meeting up with us a few times before the shoot just to get my fiance more comfortable around him. And, it worked! He actually SMILED at Martins camera. Closer towards the wedding my finacee was writing ALL the emails to Martin.

Martins photography is special! He has a way of looking at things and capturing them very detailed or even on a larger scale. Just check out his website!
Marting is very open to new ideas. If you have pictures you like show them to him and he will do his best to capture the same. If there is something specific you want like head shots or a great photo to send with invitations. Tell him that. He is VERY dedicated to making his clients happy. And obviously is successful at it:)

Anytime I need a professional photographer or know someone thats does,they will be given his card.
