Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?

We can do photo enhancements such as, skin smoothing, body contouring, foreground/background erasures, vignettes, textures, painting or drawing conversions at an extra cost. Fine tuning of exposures or saturations are standard. We like creating at least one graphic art photograph from your event. Some samples our posted under our portfolio.

We can do both, however, most of our DSLR's are digital
How many photographers do you work with?
4 We are under PPA ~ Professional Photographer's of America. See our blog for affiliations.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, both at rehearsals(only) and your event. Your event is a once in a lifetime moment that requires vendors that know exactly what they are doing. We will always contact your wedding coordinator or caterer/s and communicate with them of any crucial details, and the importance of your creative vision. Additionally, we like to be well versed on the chronological events that will take place during your celebration. We are also there to scout out different lighting scenarios that may need auxiliary equipment or lighting. We are very professional at what we do, and guarantee that we don't miss any of your precious moments.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Not unless we have sufficient staff available for a different event. We personally make sure that the main photographers, or associate photographers are on call, and available for your every need.

I personally carry 4 cameras, and my associates bring 2-3. We have numerous flash, batteries, media cards and auxiliary lighting when needed. We always have back up equipment.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We can do either, depending on the needs of the client or for a contracted event.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes. We are very easy to work with. We always communicate with the client or coordinator before leaving the event, to ensure that we did not miss any important photographs. In fact, prior to the event, we highly recommend to the client/s, that a VIP list is made, so that we have all formals, moments and important family members and guests covered before leaving. If we are needed to stay an extra hour or two, we would charge $100/hr.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Yes, unless it is only a 4 hour event. If an associate ever needs to take a break, the other photographer is always on point, and making sure that moments are not missed by any means.

Although it's an old tradition to wait till you see your groom on your wedding day for the first time in your wedding dress, it's a very good idea to take bride & groom portraits ahead of time. You can do this the morning of the wedding or some time before the wedding date. This really relieves the stress of getting nice portrait and intimate shots of you and your groom all dressed up in your wedding outfits. You'll be so busy the day of that it's better to just go about your day and have the photographer capture candid shots and shots with your friends and family.
