1. Our wedding is very small, and we only need 2 hours of coverage. Can you customize something for us?
ANSWER: Of course. We can build custom packages for couples ranging from 1 hour of coverage to over 12 hours. Contact us and we will be happy to send you a custom quote.
2. How far ahead should we book?
ANSWER: As soon as possible. Dates can fill up quickly, sometimes over a year out. It’s hard to predict from year to year, so don’t hesitate to book, once you decide.
3. How far will you travel?
ANSWER: We are based in Houston-Galveston area but we love destination weddings. We will travel as far as you want us to. Through 2015, we have done weddings all around Texas (Austin, Beaumont, Corpus Christi, Houston-Galveston, the Texas Hill Country) and in Carmel, California.
4. What is the average turn-around time for photos?
ANSWER: Approximately 2 weeks from the wedding you will get a sneak peek of about 20-30 photos. All of your wedding photos will be available 4-8 weeks from wedding.
5. How many photos do we get?
ANSWER: We never limit the number of photos we take, edit, or you get. On average, our couples receive 600-1000 edited High-Res images organized on a very fancy flash drive. You will also get reprint permission and be able to print and share as much as you want.
6. What is the average turn-around time for video?
ANSWER: 8-12 weeks from your wedding.
7. Do I need to give you poses and samples of what I like for my photos?
ANSWER: You don’t have to, but you absolutely may. If you have a specific look or style you want, let us know. But, if you don’t have a preference, that is fine too. Designing poses and picking settings are two of the things we do best!
8. Do you have preferred venues?
ANSWER: There are several we use frequently and absolutely love, but we are always open to new venues!
9. Who will my photographer be?
ANSWER: We assign who we feel is the best fit for your wedding. We base this decision off style, venue location, and several other factors. Ideally, the photographer who shoots your engagement session is the person who shoots your wedding. We also make sure your lead photographer is there for your final meeting. You may always request a specific shooter when reserving your date and based on availability, we always try to accommodate.
10. What kind of equipment do you use?
ANSWER: Professional. Honestly that is all that should matter but many people like to know exactly so here it is. For photo we have several camera bodies: Nikon D5, D810 and D800. For video, we shoot on Sony: A7sii & A6500 both offering 4K capabilities. We also have an FS100 and 2 DJI drones. Tons of lenses, lighting, Mics, flashes, sliders, gimbals and all the fun stuff to capture your event perfectly!
11. What are your payment options?
ANSWER: We accept cash, check or credit. A minimum deposit of $500 is due to reserve your date. After that, you set up monthly payments, or a 2- or 3-payment option.
