INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes! All the photos will be color corrected to make sure they have consistency.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes! I love and have shot pretty much in every lighting condition.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Usually digital. We also offer film photography for the film connoisseur.
How many photographers do you work with?
We are a husband and wife team. Tommy is the main photographer. Wei will be the second shooter based on client's requirement.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Sure! That the first priority!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No. I accept only limited number of of weddings each year. Usually no more than 3 weddings per month. I like to get to know my clients very well to ensure they are well taken care of!:)
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Tommy is the only primary photographer with Xing Photography. If anything bad happen to Tommy and he cannot be at your wedding, we will still supply you with coverage from our contracted assistant or second shooter (based on your contract). Tommy is also a member of many organizations and networking groups upon which we could call to find you a replacement photographer.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Top of the line professional Nikon equipment and extensive backups
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. Usually at least 3 camera bodies with extensive backup lenses.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Both. Depends on the contract.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Surely. Tommy does have an overtime rate and it goes into effect only with your permission and approval that he continues coverage. Tommy will bill you for those hours after you return from your honeymoon. Please send us an email to tommy@xingphotography.com for the quote.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Tommy will do non-stop continuous photo shooting for your day. It would be really nice if you can feed me a meal at the reception. It doesn't have to be the same as your sit-down meal (many caterers offer "vendor meals" as an add-on option) but feeding tommy ensures he stays cheerful, mobile, and that he doesn't faint from starvation or waste away in a very tragic manner. We prefer to be fed when you are fed, not afterwards, because when you are eating you're not at your most photogenic. And when you're done, we want to be done as well to continue your coverage.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes. Travel is billed very simply - if airfare and hotel and rental car are needed all you are responsible for is a direct reimbursement for the charges.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Usually within 5 weeks. We will provide some teaser images in the middle for you while you are waiting for all the proofs.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
They will be put in a private, password protected online gallery.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They will alway be there online! You can check them anytime you like.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We do retain the copyright to the images and the right to use them for promotional purposes, competition, professional review, and so on. If you need we are glad to provide you with a written release in the contract that will allow you to make unlimited personal reproductions and copies for your friends and families.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, that's a part of how Tommy to promote his business. But if the client does not feel comfortable with some images, Tommy won't post them.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
We provide the selected, edited high-resolution digital files.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Sure. A private, password protected online gallery will be included in your package.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We only work with high-end printing lads which only open to professional photographers. Graphistudio is the one. Feel free to check their product: http://www.graphistudio.com/
When will the client get the final album?
The client and we are working together on the album design! You do get to preview your album design and make three rounds of changes to it before a change-fee is assessed. Once you approve the layout Tommy will help you choose your album cover style, color, imprinting, and other small details. Then you'll sign off on the book and it will go to print. All of this process can be completed online simply and easily. Once you choose your images it takes about four weeks to produce your first draft and each round of changes generally takes two business weeks to complete.
 
 
 
 When the design gets final approved by the client, it will be ready within 3 weeks.

Tommy was our wedding photographer. After looking at many wedding photos and talking to other photographers, we decided to go with Tommy. That was one of our best decisions. Tommy, and his wife Weiwei, were very professional. They had every detail thought out. Not only did they create amazing wedding photos, they also responses fast and they put us at ease without worrying about posing and without any stress. Super fast turnaround time. Final photos looked classically romantic. We would recommend Tommy to our friend and family, and to those are looking for great wedding photographers.

Tommy and his wife Wei are the most talented photographers I have ever met. I reviewed dozens of photographers for my wedding before I found Tommy and fell in love with Tommy's style the moment I saw his first image. Tommy captured our precious moment perfectly and documented the dynamic personality and story through his creative use of lighting and professionalism. Tommy and wei have very charming personality and we had a blast working with them. When our guests saw our wedding photos, everybody praised my decision for having Tommy at my wedding. Tommy has a real passion for photography and I could see him become one of the most wonderful photographers in the world one day.
