INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We love post production creative work - in moderation. Check out our website and you'll see that we offer a blend of hand-tinting, layer blending, b&w and other effects. However, we also believe in delivering your images in a pure form for you to enjoy without an excess of heavy effects.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Shooting in unusual lighting conditions is my specialty.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I have used both film and digital (over a decade each). I prefer the control of digital and use it in my contemporary workflow.
How many photographers do you work with?
My recommendations only: At intimate events (under 50 guests) myself only; from 50-250 guests we have two photographers, and 250+ recommend three photographers.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes I am your primary photographer, guaranteed.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We book one event per day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of excellent backup photographers who are all skilled. Having said that, I have never missed one of my weddings.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Typically 2 bodies and 3 lenses which I wear. Additional gear depends on the scope of the event.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
ALWAYS! And back-up for the back-up. No one should worry about equipment breakdown, especially my clients.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My Collections are based on coverage for the full event.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I'm always available to shoot additional hours; the rate is $225 per half hour. However, we always include adequate time in the initial Collection so that overtime is very rare.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
My associate photographer and I do not take scheduled breaks, other than the Vendor meal (which is requested but not required). We alternate our meal break in order to maintain continuous coverage.
Do you charge for travel?
There is no charge for travel to Los Angeles, Orange County or parts of San Diego / Riverside. For destination events we charge expenses only.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Generally online proofs are ready to view within 1 week.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Jpgs are available to view online in a personal, password protected gallery. Family and friends may order directly from this gallery, and gallery photographs may be shared.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The online gallery is maintained for a period of two years for all of our clients.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Technically the photographer always retains the copyright for any image; however our clients are granted the right to publish / share / print the high resolution images we provide on disk.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Publishing of your wedding photographs is entirely your decision. We are very happy to publish your images on our website and facebook and submit them for magazine publication; however if privacy is a priority (and with some of our clients it is) we will honor your preference and not publish the photos anywhere.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes we always provide high resolution digital files for our clients' use.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Approximately one week following your event.
What kind of albums do you offer?
White Glove First Edition Books - in my opinion the most unique Fine Art books available. We have other options as well.
When will the client get the final album?
From the time we receive your list of images (or you instruct us to choose the images) the design process takes approximately 2-3 weeks. At that time you will receive an online proof of your album to approve or change. The final printing and binding (after your approval) takes an additional 2-3 weeks.

We are SO happy that we selected Larry for our wedding. He made our initial list based on the quality of his work shown on his web site. When we met with him, he was totally accommodating and professional and impressed us with his low key demeanor. At the wedding itself, he was invisible yet everywhere he needed to be. He got all the shots, and the photos are gorgeous - some look like they could be magazine covers. We couldn't be happier!

He is the best! I would use him again. I have used him twice and my sister did as well. He not only takes incredible photographs, but he is so easy and nice to work with. We have our wedding photos all over our house.

We are so happy with the service Larry Crandall provided us on our wedding day! Larry handles himself with professionalism and we definitely felt we got great value in using him for photography. He also really helped my husband and me feel comfortable while taking pictures of us, which we really appreciated. He captured all our favorite moments perfectly, and we couldn't be happier!

Larry is an amazing photographer and I would and have recommended him to many of my friends. I had been in 2 weddings before mine where Larry was the photographer and I knew when I got married he had to be the one to capture my special day.

Amazing photographer, he made my camera-shy husband feel comfortable and the pictures were incredible. He respected that we didn't want to spend the entire day posing for pictures and was the perfect balance of posed pictures and candid shots.
