How does the wedding booking process work?
After your initial contact with us, we'll schedule a brief meeting with you in person to make sure that we're the right photographers for what you're looking for, and to get to know each other a bit more. No worries if you need some time to decide on choosing your photographer; we'll pencil in your date in our calendar to temporarily hold it, and let you know if anyone else becomes interested in that date before opening it up to them. If you do decide to choose us as your photographers, you'll need to return the signed contract back to us with the retainer fee (50% of total photography cost) to secure your date. We'll then work together to begin scheduling your engagement session, as soon or as late as you want to, pending availability. You'll get your engagement photos delivered within 1 week of the engagement shoot.
About a month before your wedding date, we'll contact you again to arrange another meeting to go over the details and schedule of your wedding to make sure everything is in order. If possible, we would have this meeting at the venue site so that we can also do a walkthrough for potential photo locations, including any you might suggest. If you are having your rehearsal at the wedding site, we would be happy to attend and have the meeting there if our schedule permits.
About a week before your wedding date, your final payment should be made with us (we accept check, Visa/MC/Amex, Paypal, Venmo, Apple/Android Pay, or cash), and you should send us your final schedule, the names of your bridal party members, your shot list (e.g. list of group photos) and if you have them, the contact information of your vendors.
On the day of your wedding, we typically arrive 15-30 minutes prior to start of photography to get set up. If you find that you'd like more time for photography on the day of, we're happy to stay longer at an hourly rate, prorated to every 15 minutes.
Within two months after your wedding date, we'll first send you links to all your final edited photos as Photo Proofs (lower resolution) in online galleries that you can reshare with family/friends, or download for your own use.
After you're fully satisfied with your Proofs, we will unlock the Final Photos (full resolution, up to 30 megapixels) in the galleries for you to download, share, and reprint however you like! (We now only deliver photos digitally via an online gallery, and no longer provide photo files on physical media).
Thanks for visiting, and we look forward to working with you!
