INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes! Working in California, the Midwest and New England, from the beach to the oldest churches, we have seen it all when it comes to lighting.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We love both mediums but we photograph all of our weddings digitally. This allows us the freedom to shoot away on the wedding day without changing rolls of film every 36 exposures and the ability to back up the digital files (again & again & again) is absolutely crucial.
How many photographers do you work with?
Two fully trained and experienced lead photographers.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Sweet Monday is April & Lindsey and you will always get us both, unless something truly disastrous happened. In that case, we have plenty of qualified backups to cover for us. But in nearly 10 years of photographing weddings, that has never been necessary.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We will often book more than one wedding or event in a weekend, but we never book more than one event per day.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Absolutely. Many of them, actually. And they are all fully skilled and experienced and owners of their own companies as we are.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Two carry-on size rolling bags full of multiple cameras, lenses, batteries, etc. And one larger rolling duffel with our small lighting kit. Back ups of everything!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We have Collections starting at 7 hours of coverage and additional hours can be added as needed.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We require a hot meal provided by the client for any event longer than 6 hours. We recommend scheduling us to eat at the same time you are eating since no one wants photos with food in their mouths anyway!
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We edit and retouch all of your images, so your complete set of proofs will be delivered 6 to 8 weeks after your wedding. However, we usually will give you a sneak peek of images on our blog to tide you over in the meantime!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Proofs are always in an password protected online gallery, which is available for 6 months. We also offer a full set of unstamped 4x6 printed proofs with all of our Collections.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We retain the copyright but you will get reproduction rights when you receive your disc of high resolution digital negatives. A disc of files is included with all of our Collections.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. Essentially, your wedding photos are our portfolio.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. High resolution digital files are included with all of our Collections.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. A password protected online gallery will be available for 6 months. Print orders may also be made through this gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Our most popular albums are Fine Art Albums with Giclee printing. We also offer Flushmount and matted albums.
When will the client get the final album?
Most clients have their album well within 6 months of their wedding date.

I am so thrilled with Sweet Monday Photography. When people tell you to spend your money on your pics, they're right! Especially if you have April and Lindsey of Sweet Monday taking them. We did both an engagement session and our wedding day with Sweet Monday and were over the moon with both. They are so professional, organized, responsible and overall just wonderful people. And so talented! Our pictures look like they could be on a book jacket. The lighting in all of them is gorgeous and they did such a great job of capturing our special moments without us even realizing they were near us. I have so many wonderful pictures of my husband and I stealing a kiss, or my dad reaching out for my hand as I walked outside or sharing a laugh with a bridesmaid. Just these perfect pieces of a memorable day. They really didn't miss one single thing. I very, very highly recommend them. They go above and beyond, are a great value and are people you'll be happy to share your wedding day with!

These girls are the most incredible photographers ever!!!! I was extremely picky about my photographer, and spent a lot of time looking for the right one to hire for my wedding. I found Sweet Monday when they were still in LA, but they agreed to do my Boston wedding, and am SO glad I did! Their photos are beautiful - artistic, unique, and capture the emotion of the day. I got a TON of compliments on their work - both for engagement and wedding! I cannot say enough good things about them - they were amazing and great to work with, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants incredible wedding photography!!!

April and Lindsey were one of the best parts about the entire wedding planning process and wedding overall. They were fun/professional/talented/awesome/patient/passionate/enthusiastic. We live in NYC so it was an added stress trying to plan a wedding from 3,000 miles away but April and Lindsey made it SO easy.

Throughout the process, they had great ideas. They tried to work with our ideas (we liked natural pictures instead of being too posed), and they achieved that goal. Even at our wedding, I saw them there after they were supposed to leave - they wanted to stay to make sure that we got great pictures of the In 'N Out truck that we had. It was these small touches that I think really added to the experience.

We got our pictures very fast and both our engagement session and our wedding photos were featured on various blogs. It took two weeks to include all of our engagement photos online and I think four weeks to get our wedding pictures online (of course, we got a "sneak peek" before that). One of the things that I liked best about them was that we wanted to use our engagement photos to make into an album as our guest book because the photos came out so great. April and Lindsey gave us several resources to use to make our own photo book and did not force us to use them (although they did offer). I really liked that they did not pressure us at any point to do anything that we were uncomfortable with. I never felt like they were trying to nickel and dime me or scam us, like some of my friends did with their photographers.

After the wedding, they were SO patient with us about making our album. They make it dummy-proof and had tons of good suggestions and incorporated our ideas (and improved them in most cases). The packaging was beautiful when our final album came, which we LOVE!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about them and feel so lucky that we found them. I can't imagine them not being part of our wedding.

My husband and I were so lucky to work with April and Lindsey. They were great at making us feel comfortable from the first meeting and then in front of the camera at our engagement shoot and wedding. The pictures were phenomenal. When we got them back (and in a timely manner of 2-3 weeks), we ordered so many because they all turned out well! On the day of the wedding, April and Lindsey arrived on time, and were super flexible about finding places where we could take our bridal party pictures (our original shooting location was being used). These two are highly recommended.

We used Sweet Monday for our April wedding in Encinitas. It's only been two weeks since the wedding and we've already been provided with an amazing slideshow of sneak peek images. The photos are amazing, very beautiful and a true capture of the joy of the day. Lindsey and April are very professional and attentive and very supportive. They were so great to work with and so sweet. I highly recommend them!

They did an amazing job! We had one wedding on the West coast and one on the East coast. They were just so easy to work with, they took all the pictures that we asked them to take, sent the proof album on time(which looks great), and just made the entire process easy. We did some color and some B&W pics, and they are all beautiful! I would recommend these girls to everyone!!

I interviewed about 5 photographers before I picked Lindsy and April of Sweet Monday Photography. The biggest deciding factor for me was looking through their sample albums. I found that many photographers had great pictures but when it came to the wedding albums, they were un-thoughtfully arranged or binge filled so every page was plastered with pictures. These girls are not only super talented in capturing precious expressions and moments, and making dream-pictures, they are also great story tellers when assembling pictures into the final wedding albums! I can't wait to see mine soon!
