FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ANSWERS TO MANY OF THE MOST OFTEN ASKED QUESTIONS
Coverage & Travel
Where are your prices?
My starting price for wedding photography is $3250. Most clients choose options that total approximately $4400. I'd love to share additional details about my pricing, so just send me an email and I'll get back to you with more information.
When can we meet?
I'm happy to meet you in person around Raleigh anytime that's mutually convenient to our schedules. If for some reason we're unable to meet in person, I'm also happy to set up a Facetime or Skype call to discuss your needs in greater detail.
Will you travel?
Sure! Where do you want me to go? Just remember, additional travel fees may apply.
Will there be a second photographer?
Absolutely! A second photographer is now included in all of weddings booked after May 2017.
How long until we see our photos?
Your wedding images will be in your gallery ready to view and share with family and friends within four weeks of your wedding date.
How many images will I get?
You'll receive approximately 100 corrected images per hour of coverage when there are two photographers.
There are so many factors that play into the final number of corrected photos provided. How many guests were present, the number of events that had taken place during the day, more elaborate decorations are all factors which can impact the number of images produced.
Will I get the files of the images?
Upon the expiration of your online gallery you will receive the edited high-resolution digital images delivered via digital download.
While I am always happy to help you order the perfect wall art for your home and gift prints for family, you'll also be provided a print release that will allow you to print your images anywhere you like. I do retain the copyright to the images which allows me to use the images for promotion materials and competitions if I choose to.
Do I need the RAW unedited files?
No. For the client the imporant version of the digital file is the one that has been corrrected and provided in your gallery.
RAW images created by today's cameras are unfinished by design and require additional post-capture work to bring out the final product. Many professional photographers often equate this to going into a restaurant and requesting all of the ingredients for a gourmet meal from the chef instead of ordering from the menu.
All of the images that have been selected for delivery to you have undergone extensive scrutiny to provide you the best possible images. All additional images that where were not chosen to be produced are not archived and can not be reviewed. The RAW, unedited images are not for purchase or viewing.
Business & Details
Can you hold a date for us while we decide?
To be fair to everyone I unfortunately can not hold a date without both a signed contract and paid retainer. All of my events are scheduled on a first come - first served basis.
What is the booking process?
There are two main ways the booking process usually takes place. If we have met in person for a consultation and you've decided to hire me to capture your day then you'll sign a contract and can make your booking fee payment via cash, check or credit card.
Because I do quite a number of destination weddings I also have a fully online system that is quick and easy. Once I have all of the important information about the day I'll send you out an email link that will take you to an online system where you can view and approve your wedding day package, review and sign your contract online, and then make your initial payment via credit card. The entire process can be completed in just a few minutes!
If I cancel the event is the retainer refundable?
The retainer fees and all other monies paid until that point are non-refundable. The retainer that was paid upon booking and any additional payments went towards the exclusivity of your date to you and from that moment on all other offers to commission your date are turned down.
