1. Can I see your portfolio?
Yes, I always have a slide show of all of the images over the years as a professional photographer. And I would insist that you see my work!
Your delicious wedding buffet will be devoured, your flowers will wilt, and your gown might yellow with time. Fortunately for nostalgic brides, wedding photographs are designed to last a lifetime -- or even longer -- if they're preserved properly.
A little extra work on the front end will help you establish a productive, referral-worthy relationship instead of an ugly lawsuit or worse -- unflattering pictures.
2. How Long Have You been In Business?
Our team has been well established for over 10 years. And we have done hundreds of weddings.
You wouldn't hire a baker without trying a sample (or 12) of her cakes, would you? This might seem obvious, but many brides take it for granted that a photographer with what "looks like" a well established business must ooze talent.
Most upstanding photographers publish digital portfolios online, (and we do) which will help you weed out the less-than-stellar candidates. After you've chosen a selection of potential photographers, set up interviews to see the portfolios in person. Be sure to take into consideration the diversity of their shots, their use of lighting and how comfortable the photos' subjects appear. A truly talented photographer can get even the stiffest brides to loosen up for the camera.
3. When will I get my photos back?
There are a number of ways that you can order your images.
~ A USB Drive with digital images
~ A CD
Or all of the above! We always return images on USB or CD within a weeks time. We also publish photos on a separate web site that is password protected for your viewing if you want to share with long distance loves. If prints are ordered it may take 3 weeks depending on the size or style of print that you would be ordering. This time frame always would include professional framing if required as well.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you're not interested in purchasing a set of 20 coffee mugs emblazoned with your bridal portrait. Still, it's vital to examine your personal photography needs compared with your vendor's capabilities. We are happy to work with your individual requests, ranging from mounted portraits to traditional albums, but it never hurts to see our product list and pricing ahead of time in case you want to buy something not included in your wedding package.
4. Can I reach your clients that you have photographed in the past?
Yes! Ofcourse you can! We have clients from coast to coast. We have 14 Facebook pages, LinkedIn pages and more. There are several clients that have posted feed back on these pages - Feel free to browse and ask around. We can provide you with more information with their permission.
