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, Negatives, Proof CD of All Images, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I'm completely digital, so I can do spot coloring, sepia and lots of other effects.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
In wedding photography you are pretty much exposed to everything. I would assume most professional photographers have mastered pretty much anything you can throw at them.
Is your media preference film or digital?
digital
How many photographers do you work with?
I have backup photographers I keep in contact with, but I usually photograph along with an assistant. I do however have the option of adding an additional photographer.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I NEVER do more than one wedding in a day. I may book 2 or 3 in one weekend (Unless, of course, the wedding is out of town. Then I would only photograph one.)
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I do keep in contact with other photographers for this very reason.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I bring 3 cameras and I have lots of memory cards and extra flashes. I also bring a laptop with me so my assistant can backup your photographs throughout the day.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. (see above)
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I am always available for shooting overtime. You can decide at the reception that you want me to stay later.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Just a short break to eat.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
In one month you will receive the DVDs in the mail for your own reprinting of pictures. Or at that time, you can pick the pictures for your album.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
DVDs and on-line for sharing with friends and family.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They are theirs to keep.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. We share rights. You can reprint your pictures for personal use and I reserve the right to use them for advertising or photo contests.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
The couple does receive the digital negatives.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, you can order photographs from the site or you can print your own reprints from the CD-ROMs provided.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I have library bound, leather bound, coffee table, parent albums and more.

Colleen did a fabulous job. She was able to meet on evenings and weekends for planning, arrived at the venue on time/early to take some "detail" photos before anyone in the wedding party arrived. She was nothing but professional throughout the evening and was well organized. She even managed to get a large family photo with everyone looking at the camera and smiling! The photos turned out great. I love the mix of formal and candid shots. Everyone enjoyed taking home a 4x6 print at the end of the evening and watching the slide show from the ceremony after dinner (great surprise!). I have received so many compliments on how the photos turned out, and how great she was throughout the wedding (never in the way, but always in the rigth place at the right time).
Thanks!

Colleen was very professional, and did an overall great job on our wedding day. She was very cooperative in meeting with us beforehand and had a list of all the pictures we should consider taking and made a checklist of everything we wanted. It is very nice having the rights to our own pictures, that way we can give them to anyone we would like. Colleen was very friendly, flexible, and dressed appropriate for the event. She even printed out some of our pictures at the end of the night for our guests, which we loved and so did our guests! We would very much recommend Colleen for a photographer at your wedding.

Colleen was amazing to work with from the first moment we met her. I knew after our first conversation that she truly cared about capturing the moments of our wedding, getting all the shots we wanted, and making sure that she fit seamlessly into our day. She has the experience to guide you through the process, and the professionalism to sit back and listen to your ideas. I love how my pictures range from artistic and creative to timeless and traditional. Colleen has the skill and imagination to suit any event and any taste. Looking at our pictures for the first time brought tears to my eyes... she captured all the beauty and laughter and fun of our wedding, and we will have those memories perfectly captured by Colleen forever! Thank you Colleen!

Colleen was absolutely AMAZING for my wedding. She took everything I wanted to heart and made sure she met all of my needs. She was very organized and quick with a time crunch to get out of the church but she knew of a BEAUTIFUL park for the rest of our wedding party photos. She kept everything very fun and light hearted to keep up with the pace of the day. She really knew how to capture the moment and has created some wonderful memories that I hold very close to my heart. There are not many people out there that can capture such beautiful meaningful moments like Colleen can. I would recommend her time and time again to anyone around! She does GORGEOUS work!

I would give Colleen Bowers of Fay's Photography a 5-star rating in all categories. She is truly a professional who stayed on top of things and was always available if I had a question. Plus she did not charge an arm and a leg for the work we requested. We were a smaller wedding, non-traditional, and did not need all the bells and whistles, yet we received 100% of her time and attention. I would totally recommend her.

Colleen was very attentive to our needs and interests, and had great experience to recommend her. She ran all over the place during our ceremony capturing great shots from a distance and up close. She goes the extra mile and really cares about her work. Colleen even came to my in-law's property for an outdoor engagement photo shoot. It was wonderful to have a photographer who took the time to get to know us, which helped us feel a lot more comfortable on the Big Day. Many candids resulted from this!
