F.A.Q. Photography – Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS YOUR PRIMARY STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY? We describe our work as photojournalistic, candid, and honest. Sure, we’ll do the posey stuff and make sure we stage the important shots, but we feel the “real moments” are the most interesting. To us, being “honest’ photographers means capturing the moments as they happen and using natural light whenever possible. We don’t try to create a mood that doesn’t exist, unless directed otherwise.
DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS? No. Some couples want a wedding photographer who specializes in weddings and weddings only. We think that’s boring, but that’s just our opinion. We’ve photographed: couples for engagement shoots, portrait sessions for families, events for corporations, baby showers, and have multiple cameras attached to us whenever we travel. We feel the variety of environments and moods makes us better photographers than just focusing on a specific type.
WILL THERE BE A CONTRACT PROVIDED? YES. The contract, will detail what services we are providing, pricing, termination resolution terms, etc. A contract is created for your protection and our protection. It is best to hire a photographer that will create a contract with you, and be wary of photographers that “don’t typically create contracts for clients”.
DO YOU ALLOW ME TO CHOOSE A CERTAIN STYLE OF POST PRODUCTION? We do all of our own editing using the most advanced software and technology, and want you to trust us with those decisions. We’ll provide a preview of edited images within 24 hours of returning home and we will value your feedback from there as we move forward editing the rest of the photos. We want to give you EXACTLY what you are looking for and will do our best to use our post production skills to make that happen.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? Primary Cameras: Two Canon 6Ds Backup Cameras: Canon 60D, Canon 80D
WILL YOU WORK IN THE RAIN? Gladly!
WHAT ATTIRE WILL YOU WEAR? Whatever you want us to wear. If you have no specific requests we will dress nice, but comfortable.
HOW LONG AFTER THE EVENT WILL THE PHOTOS BE READY? While, no two events run on exactly the same time frame, you can expect your edited photos delivered via a link within 3 weeks and CD (if requested) mailed to you within 1 month.
DOES THE PHOTOGRAPHER OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE PHOTOS? Yes, meaning you cannot sell the photos for profit or use them for personal branding without permission. You will be granted the printing rights and are welcome to print as many photos as you desire. You can also make as many copies of the photos to share with friends and family and keep for backups. On that note, we cannot always guarantee we will have copies of your photos if you lose them, due to storage limitations.
We recommend backing up your images once you receive them, usually in at least two other places. You are also permitted to use the photos on social media, but we do ask that you try your best to leave them in tact. We spend hours upon hours editing your photos, using the most advanced techniques and software available. If you have a request for a different look/feel of a certain photo that you would like to print, we are happy to work with you to achieve the desired result.
