INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?

What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, 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?
We love to digitally enhance, manipulate, and take full creative control with all the images. Our editing style is up to commercial standards with some images being used commercially nationwide.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Studio lighting is key to vibrant colors and details! We use it during day and evening weddings. It creates a look unlike anything else. If it is a church wedding or other location where artificial lighting is prohibited...we shoot natural light with no problem. Variety is best!
Is your media preference film or digital?
Purely digital...we have so much more control in the 'digital darkroom' nowadays that film is no longer competitive.
How many photographers do you work with?
2-4 photographers will be at a wedding at all times. Chris and I usually shoot together unless the wedding guest list is 400+.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
YES! Unless something really bad happens there is always a back-up plan.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
NO but we will work two weddings on a weekend. We're super energetic I guess :P
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes we work with associate photographers who also own their own photography businesses.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
4-5 Camera bodies, extra lights, flashes, batteries...
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We have never had to use our back-up equipment but if we did need it we'd have all of our extra equipment readily available.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Hourly.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, we do stay longer if our clients request it. We NEVER leave without letting our clients know!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
None. We are usually on our feet the entire time working unless we take a meal break.
Do you charge for travel?
Outside of CA, NV, and AZ we will charge a travel fee. Unless it's within these 3 states...NO TRAVEL FEES!
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
6 to 8 weeks. We shoot about 40 - 45 weddings a year so far. Good art takes time!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We provide your proofs in a book form as well as online via password protected website.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They're yours to keep. We include them in all of our packages.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, but we do share them with the client.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, we love to show off our clients happy faces on their wedding day!
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, we offer a limited copyright release within our contract that states that our clients are free to reprint/ enlarge the wedding photos that we take of them. They just can't go and enter them in contests!
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes...ALWAYS!
What kind of albums do you offer?
We primarily offer Renaissance and GraphiStudio Albums. We love to support our USA based companies as well as our Italian neighbors as well.
When will the client get the final album?
It depends on the album and design. Some are more intricate than others. Usually from 2 weeks to 6 weeks is our standard lead time on our albums.

I first heard about CB Photography from my best friend Brittany who got married last year and I decided to meet with Chris and Mary for my own wedding in August 2012. I am SO HAPPY we used them for our photographers. I had an unusual request for our wedding favors. We wanted a 3rd photographer to come to the venue and take pictures of the guests as they entered the ceremony, then print the pictures upstairs at the venue (on site) & deliver the pictures to the tables during/after dinner, so the guests could then add the pictures to their wedding favor frames that also were used as seating place cards at their reception tables. CB Photography not only made this wish come to life, but did it with NO PROBLEMS at all. I was so thankful & amazed at how they pulled it off and how it came together exactly as I imagined it. They worked with me and went above and beyond what any photographer would ever have done. Mary came to our hotel early for pictures of all us girls getting ready, she worked with me on pictures I wanted taken....and then even came in the limo with us as we rode to the ceremony. Working within time constraints & keeping me on schedule. I could not of asked for a more professional couple. Their chemistry & work is beyond AMAZING!!!! Unique, inspiring, & truly classic are just a few words to describe Mary and Chris's "style". Value-all you need to do is google their site, look at their pricing & compare to just one other company out there,meet them; give them a chance and you will know RIGHT away, just like we did the value you are getting. Our engagement pictures were also amazing and they drove to a drag strip with us and met us up there, had to of been a 3 hour trip for them but they wanted to make our dream photo spot come true (Very flexible) I am more then happy to share my honest experience with anyone who is looking for a WONDERFUL photographer! With gratitude - Jason & Nikki Swain

Hiring Chris and Mary was the single best vendor decision we made. Before we even met them, I absolutely loved their photography style and love for color. After we met them, we loved their personalities and knew that we could trust them with such an important day (at least to us) in our lives. Hubby and I don't have too many "nice" photos of us together....we aren't camera happy folk. But by the time we finished our engagement session with them, we almost felt like celebrities. And the finished product....QUALITY. They are professional, creative, flexible and all around GOOD PEOPLE. Seriously, if you want great photographers, HIRE THEM NOW.

CB Photography was amazing! Chris and Mary Bence are the sweetest couple and make your wedding day so much fun! You don't even notice them throughout the day and they get the most beautiful shots! They are both great with the cameras and can do some awesome technical stuff with the photos! We had a photo with the sunset in the background and they brought out the color just a little bit and it looks amazing!!! I couldn't believe the pictures! They were more than I could ask for and I'm SO HAPPY I went with them!

Chris and Mary are fantastic! They know what they are doing and make the whole experiance very fun! The samples they showed us at the first interview were exactly what we wanted and they have a great eye for detail. They had a photo package that fit what we wanted but they can make a custom package if needed. A+++ for service, expertise, and fun to work with.

Chris & Mary are amazing! We have so many beautiful pictures of our wedding day thanks to them. One of the things that truly amazed me was the diversity of the pictures they took- their range is vast: classic, artistic, funny and sometimes even a little abstract. They have such a great eye for the details and are always willing to go the extra distance to get an incredible shot! I could not be happier with the quality of service & photographs we received. There is one problem though- I have no idea how we are going to narrow down our selection for our album- there are too many wonderful pictures to choose from!

I will forever be grateful to Chris & Mary for their hard work, patience and dedication to our wedding. I really liked the field trip they take you on to familiarize themselves and to pin point areas to shoot photos. This proved very helpful on the day of our wedding when the coordinators of our ceremony venue goofed up our times. I enjoyed their personalities and professionalism the moment we met them. I had this feeling from seeing their website and especially after calling them that we'd be booking with them. They drove to our town for our initial meeting which was so helpful (we had a young baby at the time.) The baby just loved Mary so that was just a big sign. :-) They were such a cute couple as well and I think it is the cutest thing ever to have had a husband wife team as our photographers. They respond promptly to emails and never ever make you feel dumb for any question asked. I probably sounded like such a nerd as I was always so nervous. But they were troopers. I could write all night about how much we loved them. I can't wait to see the photos. And yes I wrote the review before getting them back but they did show examples and with their personalities, how could you not book with them! Thank you Chris & Mary. We miss you! :-D

Entrusting the photography of our wedding to Chris & Mary was a no brainer for my husband and I. Our wedding was just 2 months ago, in September 2010 and we recently received our proof book...and its simply phenomenal. They captured moments, feelings and emotions that made our day special. They were there for EVERYTHING and didn't miss a thing. I even had one of my bridesmaids this weekend tell me how impressed she was with the quality and speed of our photographers. She couldn't believe how many photos they ended up taking...and how efficient they were with time. They were so professional, personable, friendly and just the right choice for our wedding! Thank you Chris & Mary for capturing our special day so perfectly! My husband and I will refer Chris & Mary to everyone we know who is planning a wedding.

Chris & Mary shot our wedding back in 2010. They were absolutely fantastic in all meetings before the wedding and on the day. They are both very warm and friendly and make you feel very comfortable. My husband was very picky about the style of photography so we went through a lot of portfolios before chancing upon Chris & Mary. They each have a unique style of photography so you get some fantastic, diverse shots. Their work was stunning and the amount you get for the price is unbeatable. 4 years on we've decided to finally order a couple of parent albums and Chris' service and professionalism are exactly the same as when we got married. We couldn't be happier with the service and final product. I would recommend them to anyone, and would certainly use them again for any event.

Maybe its a little too soon to be reviewing.. since I havent even seen any of the pictures yet.. But I just had to say how much fun we had with Chris and Mary and how comfortable they made us feel.. I just know the pictures are going to turn out great- and cant wait to see them.
They were professional and very easy to communicate with-- I was planning my wedding in California-even though I live in Seattle and work full time-- and they just made it so easy for me w/ emails-- they always got back to me quickly- usually within the same business day- and very friendly and open to anything.
Thank you so much Chris and Mary.. we had a great time working with you and would recommend you to everyone!!!

Chris and Mary are the best! Really! Their great chemistry made for great chemistry all around. I felt completely comfortable with them shooting pre-ceremony shots. My husband didn't clam up in front of them, they made him comfortable. Our family and friends thought they were friends of ours because of how friendly and professional they were. As great as they were with the consult, the many emails, the ceremony and reception...I now answer...yes, they are friends of ours. We will definitely refer them to anyone who asks.

Chris and Mary photographed our wedding in October 2009. My husband and I cannot say enough about our pictures and our photographers!

Our first meeting with Chris and Mary was 2 miles from my house at 630pm! They brought us examples of their work, and we got to know them! They emphasized that this process was about us, and they were just there to make our wedding experience the best they could. In addition, we really liked the partnership between Chris and Mary, it made us feel comfortable and we had a great time just chatting with them.

Chris and Mary were very responsive to all our questions and concerns. I kept in touch with email, text, and phone. My emails were answered in less than 24 hours, and usually less than an hour. I always knew I could get in contact with Chris or Mary.

After all my research, Chris and Mary were very reasonably priced, if not under priced! I know you probably can’t believe that, but it is true. We also liked their payment plan: 1/3 to hold date, 1/3 day of, 1/3 when proofs arrive. This was extra convenient for us. Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures both have CDs and magazine style photo books. We showed them off to family and co-workers who all were impressed. In addition, they spent all day with us on our wedding day!

As you can tell, we really liked Chris and Mary! I think they were the best decision we made on wedding vendors!

They were so much fun and made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. They were truly committed to excellence and I would highly recommend them to any bride.

My wife and I couldn't have chosen a better photographer. Instead of working with a Photographer and an 'assistant' we got to work with two professional photographers, and because they are husband and wife they knew how to work with each other so well. Mary's candid shots combined with Chris' posed shots turned out to be the best setup we could've ever dreamed of. Not only are they great photographers, they totally understand the personalities of their clients and they absolutely captured our personalities in every shot. I would recommend Chris and Mary to anybody and everybody that is looking to work with professional photographers who know how to make the day fun and who actually help reduce stress. The wedding is all about the bride and groom, and Chris and Mary made us feel that way from the first moment we met them. Great photographers, great pictures, great people.

I cannot say enough good things about Chris and Mary... seriously.

I was so worried about hiring good photographers for our wedding and they completely exceeded my expectations. They were so easy to work with and were more like friends than just vendors we hired.

The pictures turned out amazing and I absolutely love every single one of them.

I was very impressed with everything we got for our money... most people tell me I must have spent a fortune on my photography for everything I got and the quality of pictures but the truth is, the price is completely reasonable and you do get a TON for the money.

If you want excellent photographers for a really good price, go with Chris and Mary. You will not regret it!!

CB Photography is professional, prompt, and well-worth every penny! We are 100% satisfied and even feel like we have gained friends.

My fiance and I emailed several vendors shortly after getting engaged. CB Photgraphy was the only vendor that responded in 24 hours.

CB Photography was on time to every event and even offered an additional engagement session at no cost to us due to overcast weather.

I really liked that Chris and Mary were very prompt in their responses when I corresponded via email. Also, they came to the venue early (a few weeks ahead) with us and looked at the property so they would know what they needed, etc. They also staked out a few places they wanted to do photos. They sent a sheet a few weeks before asking what types of shots, and they pretty much stuck to it (they missed a few requested shots, but that was more due to time constraints and the fact that family members kept wandering off...). Overall, exceptional photos and a great couple to work with!

I can't say enough about Chris Bence Photography. Both Chris and Mary were a delight to work with. Out of all our vendors, CB photography was the most responsive and prompt -- a must for many brides. They were easy to work with, always willing to listen to your ideas and offer suggestions as needed. They were never pushy; nor did they ever try to "up sale" their services.
The day of the wedding they arrived early so that they had adequate time to set up. They interacted well with all members of our bridal party; making it easy for the flow of the day to go smoothly. Very professional yet laid back -- helped make the day fun!
CB's proof book is amazing! We had no idea that we would receive all of our proofs in a "magazine-like" book! Have not yet ordered pics for the album; but am confident it will be put together beautifully. Most importantly, our pics captured every aspect of our wedding day. When using Chris Bence, you get two photographers...which is great, as they capture different viewpoints.
We would highly recommend CB photography! And as a matter of fact, friends of ours will be using CB photography for their upcoming wedding!

They give you a beautiful proof book for all your photos and it makes things so easy. Its also nice that they give you the cd for all your pictures. They are truely wonderful to work with.
Chris and Mary have now taken our family photos wich were also amazing and soon they will be taking my maternity photos. Their website doesn't give them enough credit. If I were you, I would book them in a heart beat. The price you pay is worth every penny.
