INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Digital Files, High Resolution Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Good light! Check out our receptions...there is where the rubber meets the road. Any photographer with a good camera can create decent shots in perfect light outdoors. But can they light ANY reception space? Not always!
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We can light anything from "no flash" during the ceremony, to huge ballrooms lit only by candles. Of course, we'll be the first to tell you that certain situation make prettier pictures than others...but being a professional means handling ANY lighting situation. That's what we come prepared for!
Is your media preference film or digital?
We are digital shooters. Film is cool...but film is no longer the industry standard. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
How many photographers do you work with?
We're a two shooter team...oh yeah...and we're married! :-)
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
We guarantee it in writing through a formal contract. Don't send money to ANYONE that doesn't send YOU a contract first. If we don't show, you have legal grounds to get your money back.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Every now & then, we have the unique opportunity to book two weddings in one weekend. BUT! A big but here! We work on the right of first refusal...if you book with us for Saturday, and need both rehearsal dinner coverage AND a post wedding session, then you get us for three days...no questions asked. If you only need us for Saturday, we MIGHT book a nearby wedding on Friday if we can swing it. But only after we check with you first! Oh yeah -- we never EVER book two in one day! That would be crazy!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Because we are two photographers, we are kinda like a built in backup system. Either one of us would be capable of carrying the day alone. In the event of an emergency, we have a network of professionals that we can call on to help us get the job done.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We're Canon shooters...don't let those Nikon people scare you! Canon is the Mac of photography! :-) In all seriousness though...we carry top tier professional bodies, lenses, and lighting equipment.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We bring backups of EVERYTHING! And we store our backups in a different location from our primary gear bag. So if one set goes down, we have another set ready to use.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We charge a flat fee for 8 hours of coverage. If you need additional time, it can be added in hourly blocks.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
We're flexible. We typically only charge extra if the bride & groom specifically ask us to stay. If things just run long by 15 minutes...so what!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
A maximum of 3 breaks...about 4 minutes each. And this is only at the reception.
Do you charge for travel?
Yep...hotels, meals, and fuel. It usually works out to a little over $500, but we cap it at $500 no matter what. When traveling internationally, we charge one flat rate for the entire package.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We PUT IT IN WRITING that you will see your images within 6 weeks of your wedding day! Usually, it is about 3 to 4 weeks during the busy season, and can even be the same week when we're rocking!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We send you an online gallery, an online slideshow, AND a proofbook. Oh yeah -- you get your digital files too!
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever! This goes for the proofbook & the digital files.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Copyright yes...print rights no! These are two separate things. Bottom line: you can make unlimited copies of your files, of any size, for as many people as you would like to. You just can't sell your wedding images...that's copyright.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes...we love to see your smiling faces adorning the pages of the hottest bridal magazines! But if this upsets you...we can deal!
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes...they are yours to use as you like.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes...and a cool one at that!
What kind of albums do you offer?
The best in the world. I'm not kidding!
When will the client get the final album?
No pressure on the album process. This is an OPTIONAL purchase that can be done before OR after the wedding. Some clients really want their album fast, and can have it about 12 weeks after the wedding, and some wait over 2 years to complete the process.

Review of Meg Baisden Photography

Out rating: 0 stars
Title of Review: Run like hell!!!

My fiancée and I booked a photography session with this company more than a month in advance. We scheduled a primary session and alternate session in case of bad weather (Florida can be unpredictable at times).

I flew into the Pensacola area from the Northeast US on the day of. The photographer's husband (Charles) stated the weather was bad and he wanted to use the alternate day. We agreed as there was overcast all day.

We never hear from Meg- Charles controls everything. Even though we received email confirmations for our primary and alternate dates, he CANCELLED the session stating, "uh something came up."

He was callous and had a very non-caring attitude about our inconvenience. After all, I only spent hundreds of dollars to fly down for photos over the weekend.

As a military family, time is of the essence. We have a limited schedule because we are usually at work fighting for our country. This inconvenience is more than about money- it is about principle.

I would not recommend this company to anyone! They are the absolute worst. Their customer service is mediocre at best. I would rather pay more money for a professional, reliable photographer to take our pictures. Obtaining payment in full, scheduling sessions, and then canceling them is completely unacceptable!

Charles ruined our engagement weekend and wasted our time AND money. In the process, he threw his wife under the bus and accepted no responsibility for his mistake!!!

I am completely disgusted with them. I will post this review on every website so that potential customer will know NOT to choose them unless you want a $300 session to turn into a$900 (flights to the area) because of their error!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would - with gusto. Meg and Charles are not only amazing photographers, but even better people. My husband and I are not completely comfortable being photographed, but when M & C came up to do our engagement photos, we felt like we were spending the afternoon with some old friends rather than photographers. And while we were happy with just the experience, the photos came out even more phenomenal than we could have imagined. Each moment they captured portrayed us perfectly - goofy, happy and in love. Fast forward to the wedding, and Meg became my soul sister, guiding me through the preparation, keeping me sane and capturing everything. I am so looking forward to seeing our wedding through their lenses, because I know if will be simply spectacular. I can't thank them enough for being a part of our big day, and our lives.

The perfect photography team! Our wedding pictures are all that we asked for and more. Meg and Charles split up so one captured me (the bride) while getting ready and before the ceremony and the other captured my soon-to-be husband. We hired them for both our rehearsal and wedding and just absolutely love our pictures. They are so creative and I must say our pictures are stunning. :) You couldn't find a better photography team. Plus, they are the sweetest people. WIthout a doubt, we would hire them again. Any bride would be lucky to have such a great photographer.

We love Meg and Charles. They are 100% professional, sweet, prompt and a joy to work with. Our wedding photos are amazing. When we look at the pictures it makes us go back to that day as Meg and Charles captured the feeling of our big day. They are truly caring people and take so much pride in their work.

Meg and Charles are seriously the best out there! Since our first initial Engagement Session, I know I had found my dream wedding photographers.

They made sure I had all of my shots I wanted taken and even went above and beyond to spend extra time with us! There work is amazing! We love them and can't wait to use them again down the road!

This review is going to be short and sweet - we used Meg Baisden Photography and could not have been happier with the service. Meg and Charles were amazing to work with - fun and energetic. I chose them because of their style - very sweet and natural photos - nothing cheesy or contrived. We used their services for our engagement photos, at our Welcome Dinner, and the ceremony/reception. We have not yet seen our wedding photos, but I have complete confidence in the results (we have previewed our enagement photos and they are great - exactly what we wanted).

One thing to mention is that my husband was VERY pleased. He pretty much stayed out of the planning, but is very vocal about what he likes and doesn't like and I was worried the most about the photographer. However, he loved Charles and Meg (WHEW!). It is very bizarre being romantic with an audience, but they know how to direct you to get the best photo. They kept telling us that it gets easier and by the time we were in full swing at the reception, I didn't even notice them taking photos anymore and we expect to see some really fun shots on the dance floor!

I highly recommend Meg Baisden Photography - they also travel and offered to come to Atlanta for our engagement session! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

Meg & Charles were absolutely amazing. You can tell the pictures are going to be gorgeous by looking at their website - and I certainly wasn't disappointed. But what you won't pick up on from the website is just how helpful and supportive they're going to be on the wedding day! They're just so professional, so not only was I able to be completely confident that they were capturing every little moment (in beautiful detail) but they've done it a thousand times and were so willing to help out, from helping keep track of time to even helping sneak me out of the reception for a bathroom break :) They're SO good at what they do, I would recommend them to anyone!

The Baisdens were the best decision I could have possibly made! Not only are they amazing photographers (most amazing pics I've ever seen!), they kept everything flowing smoothly. They even sat down with me to make a schedule for the wedding day when I hadn't even thought about it. They are quick and not obtrusive but still somehow create the most gorgeous pics. Ours look like something from a magazine! Plus they give you full reproduction rights, which from what I saw, nit many photographers do and they don't stamp their watermark on every pic, so you just get the memory and not an ad when you look at your pics (which for me makes me think of how great they are every time I see my pics). Seriously, they are one of the best things you can do for your wedding! They took away all the stress!
