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, Flush Mount, 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?
Yes. Our post production department is able to provide anything you can fancy. We are members of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
From natural low-light, to night photography (one of my specialties) to off-camera speed lights and strobes, or studio continuos lighting. We are technically trained professionals that will handle the most important part of photography - lighting - without skipping a beat.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Our studio is completely digital, but we can deliver film if there was a special request or circumstance for it. We honestly believe that digital photography today is at least at par with the best that film had to offer, and in some cases, better. But we can cater to any special requests for film. We still have our collection of film cameras.
How many photographers do you work with?
I prefer to work with a second shooter or candid man on almost every wedding, but the very smallest or intimate. There is just no way that you can be everywhere all the time, capturing the candid moments as well as the most precious unexpected moments requires great skills, but you also have to know human limitations, and when you having a medium to large wedding, at least two photographers should be covering it. If over 150 guests, then we start to seriously consider three photographers. And let us not forget the lighting assistant and in some cases a post production designer if necessary to deliver a slide show presentation of the Wedding during the reception dinner.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
If you hire me for your event, absent an act of God, I will be there. You may however opt to hire one of our studio's Associate photographers and save some extra money. Every photographer in our studio has been expertly trained for years in the field of Wedding, Portraiture and Event Photography. They all share our studio's view, philosophy and photographic style. You will however not be getting an inferior photographic experience. You will meet the person that will photograph your wedding from the very beginning to help you make up your mind if this person is the right one for you. There will never be a surprise, other than maybe my personally showing up at your wedding despite you having hired one of our studio Associate Photographers.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never for a Wedding or Event. I will shoot multiple portrait sessions on the same day, but never multiple weddings or events. Each one deserves the photographer's undivided professional and artistic attention from the beginning to the very last shot of the day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
This is a standard operating procedure at our studio and with any reputable photography studio anywhere. We will always have a secondary photographer for each photographer hired to attend your wedding or event in case of an unforeseen act of God or unexpected accident or emergency.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We are a Nikon studio by choice. All our equipment is Nikon Digital and we use the finest bodies and optical glass available from Nikon. This also allows us to interchange equipment between photographers at a Wedding or Event if the need arises. Additionally, every photographer travels with at least two bodies and multiple lenses and lighting equipment to every event. No exception. We never let Murphy get the upper hand, not when you can avoid it with a little precaution.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Every photographer from our studio travels with at least two bodies and multiple lenses and lighting equipment, plus accessories, batteries, duct tape, reflectors, etc..., to every event. No exception. We never let Murphy get the upper hand, not when you can avoid it with a little precaution. 
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We will usually try to arrange a package for your event or wedding that will end up saving you money off our A-La-Cart price list. However, it is always up to you on how your hire us. By the hour, the day or based on a full package.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Always, if not on a packaged deal. Our standard hourly rate is $200.00; however, we seldom have anyone turn away our package products. With our package deals you are covered for the entire day's shoot, no extra hourly fees or charges. It's a great deal, especially for Weddings.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We take time off when you are taking your down time to have a meal during your reception or event. In addition, since we usually cover the event or Wedding with at least two photographers per team, one will always be at the ready.
Do you charge for travel?
We specialize in World-Wide Destination Wedding and Event coverages. Travel charges, including transportation to and from airports, air fare, hotels, and meals are all carefully calculated and added to our pricing upon request from the very beginning. Locally, we do not have an extra travel charge within 50 miles of our studio. We do require access to the venue a minimum of one day prior to the event to scout the venue and area as well as prepare for any special requirements. All travel expenses must be paid in full prior to the event date. We accept all major credit cards, local checks, bank cashier's checks and government currency.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Usually within the first three to five days after your event, the proofs will be ready for viewing. We like to hold a champagne gala viewing event for our couple and their family members at our studio. Later we schedule time to sit down and select the final cuts for the albums, enlargements, and other products.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We prefer to provide you with HD 1080p proofing via in studio slide presentations and in studio proofing sessions; however, we are flexible and can provide on line proofing or hard copy proofs and proof books.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Hard copy proofs will be yours to keep. On line proofing is usually available for terms of up to 90 days.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
With your approved and a signed model release we would seek publication; however, with high profile couples and weddings this is generally not the case. VIP weddings and events are generally kept private at the request of the client. Many couples however, do love the idea of having their Wedding photographs published, but it is always up to the client.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
We retain the original RAW files (we photograph everything is RAW format, which by the way is not viewable in most situations without the proper software to view the files), and they are archieved both on site and in a secured off site facility for insurance. We will provide at your request low resolution CD's with copies of all your photos suitable for Internet use and distribution as well as sharing with family and friends around the world.
Will images be available for viewing online?
They will at your request, on password protected gallery web site.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We use only the very best quality albums from GraphiStudio in Italy and other well known international and US manufacturers. We can provide any size album from 4x5" to 16 x 20," and in a multitude of product finishes and materials from glossy finishes to metallic paper, from silk printed covers to satin finished metal or the finest Italian leather. We also offer Panoramic Albums that are gutter-less, as well as flush mount albums and coffee table press printed proof books and memory books. Whatever you want done post shoot and post production, we can deliver. Every album is personally inspected for quality and perfection in craftsmanship and materials before it leaves our studio. You will always receive the highest quality products from our studio. Guaranteed.
When will the client get the final album?
It will be up to the client really, as we will need to preview the photographic proofs and choose the final cuts for the album. We can have the entire post production, proofing sessions, selections, album proof, and album production completed in as little as six to eight weeks, but generally, clients take a bit longer due to their own selection reviews with family and friends.
