The "Big Day" is almost here!
No two weddings are the same. Please take time to answer the following questions to make sure your wedding photography and videography needs are served flawlessly.
TIPS AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
We want your wedding photos to be flawless. The photographer will be unobtrusive and ready to capture your special moments. Here are some suggestions for you:
Avoid glossy lipstick and consider foundation or powder that will reduce the chance of having a shiny face. Please note we have seen mineral makeup cause unflattering effects with flash.The minerals have elements in it reflecting light.
In order to allow for a private photo session of bride and groom, we will need at least 45 minutes of your time alone with the photographer and/or videographer.
Please note that any guests including family not involved in the formal portraits should proceed to the cocktail hour. The more people around, the longer it can take to complete the formal portrait session. The personal portraits of just the two of you will only include yourselves, the photographer and the photographer’s assistant and/or a videographer. Please note that during the formal family portraits session, wedding party portraits session and private Bride and Groom session, no other photographs are allowed. Modern flashes measure and calculate the necessary light output needed based on the light at the time of reading. Outside flashes can impact these readings causing improper flash exposures. In addition, this can distract people in the images so that they are not looking at the photographer’s camera.
Be kind to ensure the presence of all the family members required at your wedding photos. Plan for about 5 minutes per photo for shots with fewer than 14 people, about 10 minutes per photo for shots with more than 14 people. It always takes some time to gather people together and pose them so that everyone can be seen, etc. Before the wedding day inform the people you want in posed photos where and when they will be needed for pictures.
Pre-assign a family member or friend who knows the people to be in the pictures to round them up for the photos. Getting people where they need to be for the photos is by far the most time consuming part of group shots.
Wedding days are long days for us. Meals during the reception are appreciated. For our "Forever" and our “Beloved” package there are four of us, a lead photographer, assistant photographer, a lead filmmaker and an assistant filmmaker. All other photo packages are just two photographers. Please consider seating us in the same room as the reception for dinner. Some venues will place us in another room, which sometimes could cause us to miss certain events or be out of the loop.
Please, make sure the cutting of the cake occurs within the booking time.
Thank you for taking your time to complete this questionnaire. Once we have received this information we might contact you with comments, questions and suggestions.
