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, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Every image of your wedding day is subjected to a individually detailed examination and adjustment called "post-processing" to insure correct color balance, tonality and contrast. We apply blemish repair where necessary. We offer and apply artistic renderings to select images such as sepia toning, textures, black and white conversions, blurs and hand coloring effects.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have extensive experience and knowledge in the art of low light and existing light situations. It is my goal to provide the most natural looking images possible in even the most demanding of light conditions.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I provide your images in 100% digital format.
How many photographers do you work with?
When you contract to have your wedding photographed by Brian David Photography, you are insured my artistic talent and expertise behind the camera. I will always have at a minimum one assistant with me at all events. See Additional Answers and Advise below regarding Second Shooters.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
My presence is guaranteed except in the unlikely event of injury, illness, acts of war or natural disaster that would prevent my ability to access your event.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I only contract for one event per day. This insures that I am dedicated to your event and your event only, with no time limits imposed. Demand for my imagery has required that I, on occasion, will book consecutive weekend events, but this has never impacted the quality of my service or prevent me from providing consistency to either client.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I belong to several photographic associations with access to many of the most talented photographers in the area. I have yet to exercise this option on any event I have contracted in the last 10 years.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
My bag usually consists of two professional grade Canon SLR bodies (currently a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 1D Mark III), seven Canon L series lenses, three Canon on camera flash units, three studio grade strobe lights with stands, five electronic radio flash transmitters, various light difusers, reflectors and a tripod.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
I always have back-up in the event of equipment malfunction or failure.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I offer both hourly and full day event collections.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I rarely charge for extra hours when contracted for a full day event. Our commitment to you is to remain available until your event is fully covered. Only in the event you contract for 5 hours or less do we charge additional hours at the rate of $175 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Meals are not required but are customary on all full day events. Covering your event is my primary focus and I do not take any specific designated breaks.
Do you charge for travel?
Travel and lodging expenses are the responsibility of the client for events exceeding a 100 mile radius of Temecula, California. You will be advised well in advance of any possible charges related to travel.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Your proofs are made available for viewing usually 10-14 days after your wedding date.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Client proof images are made available through your private online gallery.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Clients proof images are the property of the client.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. I retain full and unlimited copyright privileges.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. I retain full and unlimited copyright privileges including but not limited to display for marketing examples of my work, editorial, trade or advertising purposes and entrance into photographic competitions.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. All high resolution images are made available for clients to purchase in packaged collections or a-la-carte.
Will images be available for viewing online?
A private online gallery is included in all our wedding collections available for 3 months with an option to extend the event for up to one year for an additional fee. All events are automatically re-released 45 days prior to your 1 year Anniversary for a period of 3 months. Additional photographic prints make great "Paper Anniversary" gifts for your spouse!
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer and recommend only the finest flush-mount Leather Craftsmen 3500 Series Albums when only the best will do. We also offer Press Printed Coffee Table Albums from various industry-only vendors.
When will the client get the final album?
Your album is custom designed in-house by Brian David Fine Art Wedding Photography. Each wedding album is a unique, one-of-a-kind original, designed with each client in mind. Clients are encouraged to be involved in the design process from beginning to end. Once your album design is final approved by you, your album is ordered and delivered to you in a beautiful black Brian David Fine Art Wedding Photography presentation box within 4-6 weeks. The entire process from choosing your images to album delivery is about 2 months after your wedding date.

Brian David Photography was recommended by the Falkner Winery where we got married. After meeting with Brian and Karen (wife) we knew that they would be our wedding photographer! They were easy going and great to work with. We felt so relaxed and could be ourselves with them. They always had great recommendations and helped us a lot with our wedding day. We had an engagement photo shoot with them and everything went awesome and the pictures turned out great! We got an engagement book to remember the day and it was beautiful! Brian and Karen are professional and very out going.

The big day arrived and everything went smooth and easy, party time! Brian and Karen as always were so helpful and patient. They got great pictures and got great pictures of us and our friends. They helped so much to make our day special.

Thank you so much Brian and Karen!

From one bride to another - Brian and Karen were a pleasure to work with. They are great listeners and really work to deliver the kind of images you want to have forever. It was very easy to be photographed by them; they created a comfortable environment that allowed us to be ourselves and really enjoy the process.

My husband and I are very happy with the images we received. Our only regret is we wish our budget allowed for more pages in our final album - there were just so many beautiful memories captured, it was difficult to narrow down our choices.

Brian and Karen did a fantastic job with the photography for my wedding. They had a great selection of packages to choose from, varying from very affordable to a bit more pricey. However, even the pricier packages were still well priced and included everything I wanted. They were flexible and anything that we expressed an interest in, they were able to accommodate into the package. There were a few things we wanted that weren't included in the package, and they gave us a great price and were very helpful with giving us all our options and any discounts possible.

The quality of the photographs was amazing; they all turned out so well. The albums are very nicely done. What's nice about the albums is they tell you to choose a certain number of photos, and then they create a design around those photos. But since they're the experts, they often throw in extra photos so that the design is more complete and thorough. It was great to have that artistic touch. Of course they allowed edits to the album before it was printed, so we could see what they had come up with and give all our feedback.

Their service on the wedding day was extensive - they were with us for about 12 hours. They arrived on time and helped out with the poses and formal shots we wanted. They also did an AMAZING job with the candid photos. One of my biggest fears was that I would be distracted by them during the ceremony or reception because they were too intrusive. This was not the case; I barely noticed them at all the whole night. And yet the photos were still perfect.

Finally, they were very friendly and easily made us all feel much more at ease, despite the camera pointed at us. Karen's enthusiasm was especially great.

All in all, I absolutely recommend! They were flexible with everything and did everything they could to meet all our needs.

Where do we start...from the beginning.When Brian and Jennifer O'Dell started to plan their wedding the first thing they were looking for in a photographer is someone who was personable.From the first meeting over coffee they knew there was a connection.Brian and Karen presented themselves as a couple that would be out to capture the love story of two people.On the wedding day we could not say enough about how much they provided kind words to calm nerves and really look to tell a story through photography.I don't think 5/5 describes how wonderful these two work together to provide photography and a story that is relieved everyday when turning the pages of the wedding album.It seemed that we could never make up our minds since all were so amazing.Thank you again to Brian and Karen for providing our daughter and son in law with memories that will last a lifetime.

Brian and Karen were beyond amazing to work with! They were incredibly patient and even gave us some extra time after the reception for more pictures! The two of them combined make for an excellent team! They both have an eye for what will make a great picture. Karen's enthusiasm is addicting! Our pictures turned out to be above and beyond anything we could have imagined! They're very easy to communicate with and are extremely quick with their responses. They'll go out of their way to make sure you get what it is you need.
We love these two so much we're keeping them around for anything we'll need in the future including anniversary pics, family pics, baby pics...basically put the word "pics" in front of something and Brian and Karen will be standing there!
Thanks so much you guys! You helped make our wedding that much more special!

The most important vendor to me was my photographer...and I knew that I would have to wait until after the wedding to find out if that detail turned out the way that I wanted...well I was blown away by the quality of work that Brian and Karen did for us. We first had an engagement session...they were so incredibly professional. They knew that we were on a tight time line and they had the whole time mapped out...we got to several amazing locations and even got to stop and have some fun candid photos too. We were in contact with them every step of the way and they are super responsive to questions. While I was planning the agenda for the day they were instrumental in remembering things to get done and helping plan the agenda. The day of the wedding they showed up on time and ready to go. From the time our hair got done through to the last dance...now that we're back and I can see the pictures I'm absolutely THRILLED how artistic and creative they were. They captured every piece of the day (even the ones I couldn't see!) and I can truly say that I LOVE my wedding photos. They were truly the best part of my wedding vendors, and the best value too!
