Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We've experienced almost every lighting situation imaginable... and have been trained in all kinds of ways to deal with them. The worst of these situations being back-lit, bright sunshine, or no available light we have ways of making any photograph beautiful.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We can work in either format... but we mostly do digital now for these reasons: 1.) It allows us to take so many more photos than we could with film 2.) We can check our images as we go for quality control. 3.) The ability to change film speeds without having to change film, this is great for events when lighting changes. 4.) It allows us to put your images online for viewing and create gorgeous albums.
How many photographers do you work with?
There are packages for one or two photographers. I am confident enough that if I am hired by myself to photograph your wedding that every aspect of your wedding will be covered. A typical six-hour wedding yields approx. 1000 to 1200 images when I am alone. By picking a package with more than one photographer you will get more candid shots and different angles of every event and approx. 1500 to 2500 images.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, of course!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never book more than one wedding a day. There are only so many weekends in the summer so the likeliness of us having more than one wedding in a weekend is very good.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have a list of professionals that we would go through to cover your event. We have never missed a wedding in the 8 years that we have been in business!
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Camera and a back-up camera, flash and a back-up flash, depending on the location and time-frame: lights, lens, cards, etc.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes! Yes! Yes! This is never a question, once in a lifetime events deserve treatment as such with a plan ?B?
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Packages except for our highest-grade package are set up hourly. Because we offer unlimited photos taken within our contracted period the amount of photos taken and the amount of time editing after the event is considered in our prices so that we can cover our wages for the amount of time involved in processing all the images from your event.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Overtime is available for $150 per an hour extra in all but the smallest package we offer.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Other than to get a quick bite to eat... none... we are working through the entire event.
Do you charge for travel?
We only charge for distances over a 100 mile radius from Denver. This varies on whether or not we will have to get accommodations for the evening.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Images are available online to view within one-two weeks of the wedding. Proof books & high-resolution images on disks are available 4-6 weeks from the wedding.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online and in proof books. All packages include your high resolution images on CD as well.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
All proof books, prints, CDs, DVD, etc. any product given to you is yours to keep.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We technically own the copyright to all images we produce forever, however we do provide a copyright release form for printing your images however you would like for personal (noncommercial) use only..
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, unless for some reason the couple requests beforehand that they not be used. It is usually very exciting for our clients to see their wedding images in print in a bridal magazine or to find out that their image won an award.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Will images be available for viewing online?
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer coffee table style books and leathercraftsmen flush mount albums. These are not your mother?s wedding album! They are fun, creative and we involve you in the creation process.
When will the client get the final album?
For packages with albums we involve our clients in the production... after the client has given us their album selections we design a draft of the album and place it online for them to view. We go through changes to the book until they are satisfied (3 Free Rounds of Changes, $25 per a round thereafter) upon final approval it takes 4-6 weeks for the book to return from the binders.
