Erica Hartman Photography :I: your documentary wedding photographer with a fresh, vibrant style!

I've photographed weddings in the beautiful destinations of San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Portland and Lake Oswego, but I love to travel all over Southern California and the Pacific Northwest! Photographing your special day means documenting life as it happens in your world. As your wedding day unfolds, I am their to capture the intimate, romantic, silly & candid moments that tell your story! My fun loving, light hearted and professional style helps to set people at ease, enabling their true personalities to shine in photographs they'll cherish for a lifetime. With the biggest smile, I can honestly say that I love what I do. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
All images are available in Color, B&W or Sepia. All images are airbrushed to enhance your natural beauty.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I do! I have experience shooting in most situations you'll experience during your wedding - Indoors with natural & artificial light, outdoors with clear blue skies & direct sunlight, outdoors with beautiful overcast skies and as the sun is setting during your reception.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I love the flexibility, efficiency & beauty that digital photography offers. It allows me to keep my focus on what's important - capturing all of the magic of your wedding day as it happens.
How many photographers do you work with?
I always work with a 2nd professional photographer on weddings with large guest lists. This enables us to capture moments from to unique angles, as well as to capture multiple moments at once.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely. Unless there is an unforeseen act of God & Nature, I will be there. If forces beyond my control keep me from your wedding, I will make sure another photographer of similar style & equal ability is there in my place.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I will book myself for two events in one week but never in one day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Certainly :)
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I have a High-end Digital Camera with 2 lenses (great for capturing close up details & large groups) a powerful flash, loads of cards to capture every moment, batteries galore, a handy -just in case- kit for the bride, and every thing else needed to ensure your wedding is capture in style.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely. The 2nd photographer is also armed with their own set of equipment.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My standard package includes 8 hours of coverage. I can create custom packages if you are in need of more or less time.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Absolutely. The fee for additional hours vary depending on your collection.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
It is typical that the photographers eat while the guests eat. We only break during that time as there is much to much happening :) We do not need to eat what your guests are eating but it is customary for the client to provide a meal.
Do you charge for travel?
Certain travel fees do apply outside of the SD & Portland areas. Please inquire.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I love to say that your proofs are typically ready for viewing when you arrive back from your honeymoon!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
I create both a custom online slideshow, highlighting special moments from your wedding & set to your favorite music, as well as a private online gallery with a large selection of handpicked images from your entire wedding.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The private online gallery is available for viewing for 3 months. This is the perfect amount of time for guests to view and order their favorite images, while you are finalizing your album design.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Absolutely. Every photographer is responsible for the sole creation of their art. Our images are our livelihoods. I ask that my clients respect that.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I do. I take pride in the images I create and I cherish the relationships I have with the couples I photograph. Though I love to share a handpicked selection of images within the wedding industry, I would never allow images to surface anywhere that would misrepresent my brides & grooms, with respect to your privacy and your religious customs.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Wedding Packages come with a custom DVD of 'Share Me' digital files. These are great for with family and friends via email and your personal blogs & websites. DVD's of higher resolution files are always available for purchase.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. I create both a custom online slideshow, highlighting special moments from your wedding & set to your favorite music, as well as a private online gallery with a large selection of handpicked images from your entire wedding.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Because I work with an array of well trusted & brilliantly creative album companies, I am able to create albums to fit your unique style and personality.
When will the client get the final album?
Albums typically take 4-8 weeks to print after the layout design has been finalized.
