Do you have liability insurance?

Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Can apply many special techniques to photos, such as selective color, sepia, B&W, Glamour blur, and also do head swapping and facial retouching to name a few things. Member of National Association of Photoshop Professionals.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We deal with all kinds of lighting on a wedding day, from colored light coming through stained glass windows, to bright, shady, cloudy light outside, and dim light in reception venues.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We shoot exclusively with digital cameras.
How many photographers do you work with?
We are a team of two photographers for each wedding.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. After 1900+ weddings, I have never been late or missed an event.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Off camera strobe lighting with umbrellas for evenly lit and white balanced group formals, Nikon cameras and flashes.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Certainly! Wouldn't be without it.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We have an ala carte menu for our brides to choose which services they want covered on their wedding day.

Do you charge for travel?
Yes. If locations are more than a 30 mile radius from Grand Rapids.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Depends on the time of year. In the spring when the weddings are just getting started, turn around time is about 3-4 weeks. In the fall, the weddings have been in full swing, and the mountain of work grows exponentially, it takes longer to process the thousands of images that accumulate with all the work generated.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Variety of choices: Proof DVD, 4x6 proofs, 11x15 proof magazine, on DVD playable on your TV, on line viewing and ordering.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Permanently

Yes, but am offering a DVD with license to print if that is a choice a client wants.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. Clients may purchase a DVD with a license to print.
Will images be available for viewing online?
If that is a choice the client wants.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I love the quality of Renaissance albums, their lifetime guarantee, and stylish elegance, but there are many fine album companies available for making choices. We can work with our clients to find an album perfect for their needs.
When will the client get the final album?
This depends on when the couple comes to the studio to design it with me. Some couples come right away, and others have taken 2-3 years to make that appointment because of living out of state and the time and travel constraints. Some design it with me through email communications. It all depends on the client. I will not design their final album without their input.

I would recommend her to any bride!

Sandy did a GREAT job on our photos. She did our engagement pictures, and we really felt like she took the time to get to know us and allow us to feel comfortable with her. She is so friendly and easy to talk to. We were her last wedding of 2011 due to a serious illness. Instead of thinking of herself (which would be totally understandable), Sandy had booked us a backup photographer so we wouldn't have to worry about finding someone else on late notice. We were so excited, however, to learn that she was in fact able to shoot our wedding. Her daughter in law Kasey worked as her assistant, and they both did a great job! I got all of the pictures I wanted, and even some that I didn't know I needed. The pictures turned out great! We have tons of great shots to choose from and are planning on hiring Sandy in the future to take family pictures for us. I would recommend her to anyone!

Sandy and Kasey were great to work with! As I was planning the event, Sandy would always return my emails usually within minutes. It was easy to ask her questions and get answers and she was also so positive and uplifting. Sandy also gave us great tips as we prepared for our wedding day. On the wedding day, Sandy was exceptionally organized. I have a large family and family pictures could have been very hard to do - but Sandy got everything done quickly and had fun doing it as well! The value of her services was great and I really liked how I could pick options a-la-carte and also get a DVD with the photo rights. I would highly recommend Sandy for any photography need you may have! She has lots of experience and makes the day fun as well. Thanks, Sandy!

Sandy and Kasey were amazing! They captured every moment throughout the day. They were also very flexible. Within days from the wedding, Sandy had posted some pictures on Facebook, which was so nice to see. Family and friends couldn't stop telling how amazing my wedding pictures and that was only 10% of them. I also loved the options to buy rights to all the pictures. Sandy was so quick to get all the pictures on a cd for me within 4 weeks.

Sandy was a lot of fun to work with, and was very flexible able switching things around if needed. She did take longer than expected to get my picture DVD to me though. I do understand that it was a very busy time of year for her though. The pictures looked great, and because she uses a digital camera I feel you get a lot more pictures that with traditional film. Also she offers an array of services and products that you can mix and match to fit your needs. I found this to be very nice.

Sandy VanderTol Photography responded with the following comments:

My normal turn around time for getting photos back to wedding clients is 8 weeks when we are in the thick of shooting weddings, seniors, families and kids in the fall. I had a gallery posted on Facebook for this couple to see within one week of their wedding. When some people have to wait more than a couple of days for something to occur, they get impatient, but most clients understand that it is very time consuming to color balance & process 1400 photos that we take at weddings. My father also passed away this summer, and dealing with his death and settling his estate stretched into fall and took time away from my processing of the wedding photos that were taken ahead of this wedding. I was very happy I could keep on my normal schedule of 8 weeks turn around time during this very stressful time, but to some people who don't understand this business, that must seem like a long time.

The wedding pictures are beautiful, and we are all so pleased with her passion and her work. She was extremely responsive to our needs and very flexible.

Sandy VanderTol was amazing!! She captures every possible action that any bride would want. The first reason we picked Sandy was because of her options in a ala carte way. You don't have to pick a wedding package like so many of the other photographers have, you can basically pick exactly what you want and go with it! She is fun, profressional, easy-going, and likes your own feedback as well as her wonderful ideas, and together make beautiful photos!!:) We couldn't have picked a better photographer:) You will love her and her work!!

Sandy was an absolute JOY to work with before, during, and after our wedding day!! She went above and beyond in everything she did- we loved, loved, loved our pictures. Sandy is easy to work with, and has lots of good advice for everything regarding your wedding. I said it was like having another mom along for the big day! She really enjoys her job, but is also very professional and organized. I couldn't have asked for a better person to take our photos. I also believe her prices are very fair- an awesome deal for the quality of work she does. We would recommend Sandy VanderTol Photography to anyone.

Sandy & Kasey are a great team! It is like have (2) photographers devoted to your day instead of (1). They are extremely friendly and fun, but they know how to get things done. We were ahead of schedule the whole day, and everyone listened to their direction very well. In addition they did a lot of unique shots, but without getting too artsy. I have seen some of the proofs, and the photos turned out gorgeous. In addition I am looking forward to sitting down and putting together our album with Sandy. The personal attention and responsiveness have been phenomenal. I would recommend this team 100%.

She was most helpful with suggestions for the wedding reception planning related to the seating and flow arrangement of tables. She is very easy to work with. She suggested a few web sites that provided special touches for our wedding, ie: God's love knot - three cord strand. We ordered our invitations through her and were very pleased with her assistance.

Sandy did a wonderful job on our wedding! The pictures turned our beautifully, and I am overly impressed about her level of expertise in photography as well as her attention to detail. She spent a long time with me putting our wedding album together and I am so excited to get it! On the wedding day, she kept the schedule rolling perfectly to ensure that I got every shot that I wanted and quite a few extra creative shots as well. Her and Casey are a great team, and I would recommend her to anyone. When my younger sister gets married someday, we are definitely going back to Sandy!

Sandy Vander Tol was absolutely wonderful to work with. My husband and I immediately felt comfortable around her. We knew right away we wanted her as our wedding photographer. The day of our ceremony she arrived early to get everything set up. I was so happy when I received my wedding photos, she did a wonderful job. Everyone tells me how beautiful they are. I would recommend anyone to Sandy. She is very professional but yet a lot of fun to work with. I will definitely use her again for future photos.

She knows what she wants and when she wants it. She is a good photographer for the price. But know ahead of time that you cannot get your proofs to your pictures. She did get our pictures back to us very fast though!

Amy was given a proof book containing about 260 photos and proof magazines containing another 502 photos. These are hers to keep. My brochure has many options and she chose the proof book option plus a wedding album that we will design together.

Sandy was AWESOME...along with her daughter-in-law Casey. Sandy took awesome engagement pictures for us and even called us to do them an hour early to avoid the rain which was a blessing since I had had my hair, make-up, and nails done for the pictures. Sandy was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had along with giving helpful hints about doing things a certain way or picking a certain vendor. I had SO many awesome proofs to choose from and she designed an awesome book with my husband and I to remember our special day. She also did our invitations, place cards, table numbers, and thank yous...which all turned out GREAT too. Highly recommend!

Sandy was a great photographer and was easy to work with, the only thing I would say is don't assume that she will take the pictures you want, you have to tell her.. when all was said and done, there were no pictures of me coming down the aisle with my dad and only one full length shot of my husband and I which came out blurry.

Sandy VanderTol Photography responded with the following comments:

I just pulled up Jennifer's wedding and have to dispute her comments. There are always 2 photographers for each wedding and in her case one was stationed in the balcony and myself on the main floor. I count 20 photos of her and her father just before walking down the aisle, during the walk down the aisle and until he kissed her to give her away. We were snapping away every few seconds during that walk down the aisle, so for her to say we didn't take any photos of that is simply not true. I also counted 12 full length photos of Jennifer and Alessandro, both in the chapel and outside under the trees. In addition to those 12 full length photos, we also took 66 close up photos of just the two of them. We logged 870 photos taken for her wedding and reception, which is standard for the smaller package she purchased with me.
