INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, upon request.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, everything from outdoor sunny weddings to nighttime candle-lit ceremonies and very dark reception halls. I use a combiniation of on-camera flash, remote control speedlights and studio strobes on location to create natural and balance-looking lighting scenarios.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
How many photographers do you work with?
I have a variety of second-shooters available upon request
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, unless an alternative agreement is reached prior
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
One wedding per day, unless otherwise agreed. I do book multiple weddings across a Friday-Saturday-Sunday stretch.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Everything I need to handle any sitatuion that might occur plus a backup camera in case my primary goes down.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
A set coverage time is included in the coverage package, additional time can be added at an hourly charge.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
$150/hr (up to 10 hours total) $250/hr (11 hours total or more)
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I normally do not take a scheduled break. When the b&g and guests are eating I typically will slow my pace down a little and take some macro photos of the wedding rings and other details and this gives me a chance to rest a little before the action picks up again. I do expect to be fed, but in the case of a plated dinner a "vendor-meal" is sufficient, not the same fare the guests are served.
Do you charge for travel?
I do not charge for local events. For events within a 2 hour radius I include 100 miles of free travel for the wedding day and any overage is billed at $.40/mi. For weddings beyond 2 hours a set amount is usually negotiated prior.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I aim for 2-3 weeks to return wedding photos, barring a personal vacation etc, but I normally am well within that figure. Normally 1-2 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Proofs are available for online proofing and purchase, can be delivered on DVD and/or transmitted via the internet.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
If the client purchases the images along with a print release they will own the images forever.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
If a print release is purchased I share this right to print.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, these are available.
Will images be available for viewing online?
This service is available.
What kind of albums do you offer?
A wide range.
When will the client get the final album?
After I receive a completed order form for an album I normally have the layout viewable for approvable within 4-6 weeks depending on my workload. After the layout is approved the album is ordered and actual delivery time is dependant on which album/album provider the client chooses. I use album companies both within the US and in Italy so delivery time can vary greatly.

My husband and I loved Brendon. He stayed on top of everything throughout the entire day. He truly captured some amazing shots of us and we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of his work. The photos came out AMAZING. You will not regret hiring Brendon. He also traveled from Birmingham to Daytona Beach, FL to do our wedding which was also very cool! Thanks again Brendon!

Brendon and his co-photographer were great! They really took a wide range of pics and captured some of my favorite moments from the day. I hate posey pics which is why we chose Brendon b/c he has a fresh perspective on posey. He really pays attention to detail to make sure you don't miss any part of your big day! He is truly a professional and will make your day that much smoother for it. We HIGHLY recommend him!

We were very pleased with Brendon and very happy that we chose him as our photographer. He was always very easy to communicate with, responds to emails very quickly and always answered any questions I had. He is very flexible and easy to work with - and he is a great and talented photographer. A true professional. I would recommend him to any bride who wants to receive remarkable service from a photographer. We are very happy with our photographs and will be able to treasure them for a lifetime!

I would highly recommend Brendon for wedding photography as he is great at being part of your event and capturing those precious moments without you being aware he's around. I think this is important if you're looking for candid photos. He had great ideas for the "posed" shots too but was completely open to suggestions and encouraged your ideas as well. I was extremely impressed with the quickness in which I received my pictures back; I got them within a couple weeks and the quality was fantastic! He covered every little detail which is invaluable because once the wedding is over, all you have left is your pictures. Because of his thoroughness, my husband and I, as well as our family, will be able to look back at our pictures for years and years and remember it as if it was yesterday. I would absolutely hire him again.

My name is Brooke Murphree and Brendon shot my wedding on Friday, October 12, 2012 at Musgrove Country Club in Jasper, AL. It is a beautiful venue; however, I did not want all my wedding pictures to be centered around a "golf course" theme. And, Brendon surpassed my expectations with his creativity when it came to this issue. Not only are my pictures stunning,but they also reflect who we are as a couple and our own personal style. I am so very pleased with my pictures. Also, working with Brendon before the wedding day was ultra easy. He was very prompt in replying to my emails and answering any questions I had. On my wedding day, he made it so easy to relax. I have been in countless weddings and usually the photographer is pushy/overbearing. Brendon put me at ease with his relax and calm way of taking all the pictures I desired but without being overbearing to the wedding party/family/friends. His approach to photography was definitely what every bride desires on her wedding day. He captured all the small moments, the little details, and he had ideas that made picture perfect memories. If I had it to do all over again, I wouldnt change a thing. If you do not use Brendon... you are definitely missing out.

It was a pleasure to work with Bredon. His pictures speak for themselves as they are amazing! We chose Brendon after meeting with numerous photographers because his pictures stood out and had a different look and feel than all the others. He was incredibly flexible with my crazy wedding planning schedule trying to work around tax season as a CPA for our engagement pictures and he was always quick to respond to emails when I would ask him the same questions multiple times because I am such a scatter brain or we would make multiple changes on our guestbook trying to make it just perfect. We felt his prices were very reasonable for the quality of work and the amount of product we received. Brendon captured all the important moments and then some extras of our wedding and we couldnt be happier with our photographs!! He is a very talented photographer and we will definitely be using him the future as we have children!
