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, 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?
You will get all your bride/groom pics in regular color, and typically some sort of Color tinting, black & white, and/or sepia toned. I offer art prints, albums, and canvas wrap gallery prints as well.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have experience with all types of lighting situations. I have seen every type of lighting situation possible, and come prepared for no lighting to too much lighting.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I am 100% digital and wouldn't have it any other way! The images are superior and it allows for much more creative control of each image.
How many photographers do you work with?
Your choice. Packages range from one photographer to two. One will definitely suffice ALL your needs, but if you'd like two, we have plenty of qualified photographers on hand.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, unless I am dying! I have 3 other professional shooters that shoot with me on a regular basis. So either way, if I did become gravely ill (that hasn't happened yet in my career) you would be covered 100%.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I never book more than one wedding per day. Occasionally we will book two weddings in one weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
 A substitute photographer of high qualifications will be dispatched by Jodi B Photography to photograph your wedding in the event of an unexpected serious illness. However, I will still do all of the editing and album design.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I prefer Canon bodies and lenses. I bring back up bodies and lenses to every event. I have back up Quantum Q Flashes and Battery Packs for supreme lighting.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Of course...you never know what can happen, so it is always best to be prepared for the worst! :)
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My packages are 8 hours standard...if you'd like to purchase more hours you can do so, at $250/hour. If you need less hours, you can let me know how many hours you need and we can go from there to create your specific package to fit your needs.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
My packages are 8 hours standard...if you'd like to purchase more hours you can do so, at $250/hour. If you need less hours, you can let me know how many hours you need and we can go from there to create your specific package to fit your needs.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don't typically take breaks, we just go with the flow of the day and supply our own snacks and whatnot. Most weddings we've been to the caterer will supply us with a plate or a snack of some sort (most people don't want to be photographed while they're eating) so that is typically when we grab a snack and some water. But there's no worry in regards to meals...we're completely fine and come prepared! :)
Do you charge for travel?
We do not charge for travel within 50 miles of Corona, CA. If your wedding is farther than that, you will pay for the travel expenses (airfare, hotel, gas or whatever the travel entails). Email me for your personal wedding details.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
You will receive your images within five to seven weeks of your wedding (depends on the season).
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
You can choose to just view them online, or you can order a proof book containing every image taken at your wedding.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes I do, but you will receive full use rights of the images, which means you may print, upload or share the images as you choose to.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I do reserve the right to publish the images online or in albums and magazines, however I will usually ask your permission first.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes I do, see question above, but you will receive the images on a high resolution disc and if you choose you will receive the images in a proof book and an album of your choice.
Will images be available for viewing online?
yes
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer flush mount albums with a variety of album cover choices, sizes and print styles, and I offer standard coffee table albums
When will the client get the final album?
Once I have your image choices, I design the album, post it online and send you a printed copy so you can approve the final design. The album company usually takes around 12 weeks to build the album. It may take a little longer during busy holiday seasons.

Jodi is SO AWESOME!!!! I love our wedding photos and cannot stop looking at them! Jodi has such a great eye and is so creative (she made my groom's boutineer out of plants around our hotel room). The process was so easy - we live in AZ and planned a trip to have our wedding photos taken at the beach. Jodi was referred to us by my cousin and we feel SO blessed! Jodi was so fun to work with and spent all afternoon with us chauffeuring us to various locations to make sure that we got the photos we wanted. I really feel your wedding photographer can make our break your special day and Jodi made it SO AMAZING!!! It was such a great experience! She got us our photos quickly and has been available to answer any questions I have about them. The editing she did for us was wonderful as well! I am looking forward to going back to Cali for some family photos taken by Jodi. She is just THAT GREAT!!!!

I wish I could give all 5 stars as I truly like Jodi as a person (she's very friendly and fun!), but feel she could be more professional in a few areas. She was difficult to get a hold of and usually didn't respond quickly to emails. We loved our engagement photos, but it took over six weeks to get them back. The CD came in a blank case and the label printed on it was tearing off and bubbled. I know it didn't happen in shipping because she mentioned it in a later email and I was confused why a new CD wouldn't have been created instead.

Our wedding photos took ten weeks to get back and while I remained very patient because Jodi was expecting a baby, I feel they should have been completed earlier. Her baby wasn't due for over three months after our wedding so we should have received the photos sooner (we were told it would take six weeks at most). The wedding CDs also came in a plain DVD case and were blank without anything even written on them let alone printed on them.

I was a little disappointed in the quality of some of the pics (especially after waiting so long to get them back). I only say that because I've seen the work that Jodi has done and think she could have done better. This just wasn't the quality I expected after our first consultation and seeing other photos she took...

In the end, we still have some decent pics and the wedding photos of my groom and I alone turned out pretty great. I'm also grateful that my wedding day was perfect, marriage is wonderful, and in the grand scheme of things, having some good photos and a few great photos instead of amazing photos is still a wonderful thing!

Jodi Betancourt of Jodi B. Photography has a wonderful personality that makes her very easy to work with. We used Jodi for our engagement and wedding pictures. She worked well with our wedding day schedule and was efficient taking pictures before and after the ceremony. Our final pictures are beautiful and I was extremely pleased with the quality. My only complaint was with getting in contact with Jodi at times, however, this never affected any of our plans. I also was a little disappointed that I never received a picture that I was hoping for and Jodi has not gotten it to me. Overall, though, for the price and quality of her pictures, Jodi was a great choice for our wedding photographer.

Jodi was the photographer for my wedding last September and I cannot rave enough about how AMAZING she was! I am also a photographer, so it was hard to find someone I could trust to photograph our big day. I also live in Colorado and she was so easy to work with and plan from another state! On our wedding day, she made everyone feel very comfortable, made us laugh, had fantastic poses and was very professional. She blended in to our ceremony and did not disturb with obnoxious flashes. She was early and dressed professionally, but was still able to move around and do her job. I cannot say enough about how fabulous she was on that day and the photos turned out perfect! I am so glad that I stumbled upon Jodi's site and I would recommend her to everyone out there because she really adapts to your personalities!
