INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary
What do your packages include?
Albums, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Dan has received his masters degree from PPA and has been photographing weddings for over 15 years. He also continues to refine his eduction by attending classes and seminars every year, so yeah!
How many photographers do you work with?
We send two photographers to every wedding. Sometimes a third will go along and stay through formals.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
As much as that's possible, yes. As long as Dan doesn't regrow his appendix we should be fine!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never more than one function per day. We want to be totally focused on each client.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Besides having more than one photographer on staff, we are members of local and national photographic societies. In other words we have lots of photographer friends...
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Professional level Cannon's and lighting. We've also had use for needle and thread on occassion.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes! Absolutely!!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Typically we base our day on up to 10 hours. As storytellers we want to chronicle the entire event.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
We rarely see that happen. In any event those clients almost always have built a custom package.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We really only break to eat, but of course we keep our eyes open to make sure we aren't missing anything. That's why we prefer to eat in the room where possible.
Do you charge for travel?
Only if an overnight stay is required.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
The proof books are delivered in 4 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
The proof prints are delivered in an album and the digital files are uploaded to a unique website.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever!
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
In most cases.As professionals we are best qualified to achieve maximum results from the files we created.
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
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, they are posted after the couple receives their proof album and remain for 6 weeks.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer a wide variety of albums from traditional to digitally designed and matted or flush mounted. We can go totally custom, we even have an album covered with a pair of jeans!
When will the client get the final album?
That depends on the client. Ideally we aim for 6 months, but newleyweds have a lot going on!

Dan, Jen, Chris, and Mark have been simply wonderful to work with throughout our wedding planning! Stephen Charles was reccommended to us from our reception venue. Beginning with our initial consultation, the entire team has been a pleasure to work with. My husband was very apprehensive about doing a "save the date" session and we are both incredibly pleased that we did. Not only did it get us used to working with Dan, it produced a beautiful album that we used as our signature guest album at our wedding.

Everyone at Stephen Charles is easy to work with. Chris answers most emails and always does so promptly. Our preparation meetings with Jen and Dan have been wonderful. This is a very professional team and their turn-around with the finished products is incredibly efficient and timely.

On our wedding day, Dan and Mark were so much fun to work with! Our entire wedding party, family, and many guests, commented to us about how impressed they were with our photographers. We highly reccommend Stephen Charles photography!

We have had the most amazing experience with Stephen Charles! Dan, Chris, Jen, & Mark have been so amazing, and on our wedding day (and our engagement session) Dan was very easy to work with. We had a wild wedding party and a crazy reception, and Dan not only captured every moment and every bit of our guests individual personalities, but embraced it. Everyone was so amazed at not how good their photos were (we knew they would be) but by just how many photos were so amazing. They were extremely organized on the day of the wedding, and got every single "must-have" shot. We will cherish all the photos we have for years to come. Now that the wedding is over and we're working on our album, we cannot believe how well they all fit together. We will use Stephen Charles for years! Thanks everyone!

Stephen Charles Photography is AMAZING!! Dan and Jen do such wonderful work! Dan is the main photographer and Jen takes a lot of the candid shots. The day of our wedding something came up so Jen was not able to make the wedding, but they had two other photographers to stand in and they were wonderful. We got 3 photographers for the price of two. Dan has an eye for the unbelieveable shots. We did our engagement session with them (included in our package) so we were able to spend some time with Dan and see how he likes to photograph and get to know him. We had a blast. The pictures came out so amazing. We have not seen our pictures yet from the wedding, but we already know they are going to be spectacular. He is the absolute best photographer I have ever seen! All of our vendors said he was exceptional when they asked who our photographer was; and he was! The assistants he had the day of the wedding, were very helpful and professional. At the end of the night, Dan gave us a small book he put together in the parking lot to "hold us over" until we see the proof book. They were beautiful!! We are extremely anxious to see the rest of the pictures, but there is no doubt in our mind that they are going to EXCEPTIONAL! We would recommend Dan and Jen to anyone looking for a phenomenal photographer. The price is a bit expensive, but well worth it. The quality is just stunning!

We had nothing but a fantastic experience with Stephen Charles. They were kind, professional and just a joy to work with. We had multiple photo requests and everything was captured perfectly. They were willing to work with us to create a custom package to suit our needs. And above all, the photos were fantastic!
I would recommend them over and over.

The entire Stephen Charles team -- Jen, Dan, Stephanie, and Chris -- are an absolute pleasure to work with and are gifted professionals! My husband was initially nervous about all the picture-taking that would occur on our wedding day, but Dan and Jen put him right at ease! More importantly, they really captured all the details and important moments of our wedding day. We look forward to selecting our pictures for our wedding album. I enthusiastically recommend Stephen Charles Photography to other brides!

Awesome! This is the place to get great pictures. We did not want traditional pictures settings but wanted a contemporary twist.
If you want something new but still have that option of traditional shots with a twist these are the people to go to :) Love them!

Amazing! The entire team just blew us away, we had 3 photographers with us for our wedding. We didn't even notice they were there and we have the best memories because of them.
The pictures are breathtaking and exactly what we had hoped for. They even printed us a mini photo book during the reception so we could have a sneak peak of what was to come.
