FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Who will be my wedding photographer?

I personally photograph all the weddings and engagement sessions. I work with different second photographers depending on their schedules.

 

How many images do you provide from the wedding day?

The amount of images really depends on many things - hours of coverage, types of events and the number of guests.  I believe in quality over quantity, Typically you will receive 80 - 120 images per hour of coverage resulting in about 1000 images on a typical 8 hour wedding day.   The amount of images really depends on how much is going on and if you decide to add a second or even third photographer to your wedding day package. 

 

Can we keep the digital negatives and print our own photos or make our own albums later?

Yes, I provide a USB thumb drive with high resolution .jpg files. You can also download the images from the Proofing Gallery with password protected.  Feel free to post them on Facebook, email them to your friends and family, print them for your home, make your own album – whatever you want! 

I keep rights to my photos, so you may see them on my blog and portfolio.

 

How soon will we see the photos?

Normally your wedding photos will be ready on the online proofing gallery in 2 weeks after your event. It could take up to 4 weeks during the peak season. Once you seen your photos, you can download them from the Proofing site and start picking the images for your custom wedding album design. If you want a sneak peak I will post 10 - 20 images on my blog or Facebook within 48 hours so you can tag yourself and share your photos with friends and family. 

 

Have you shot at my venue before?

I have photographed at more than hundred venues. However, if I have not, I’ll visit the venue before your wedding day or early that day to scout out the locations. I’ll do online research to study the place as well.

 

Do you have liability insurance?

Yes. Some venues require vendors to have liability insurance. I’ll contact your venue and provide them the copy of my insurance.

 

Does your studio offer headshots, individual portraits, family portraits, or other types of photography?

Yes, I have photo studio in Portland for all in-studio photography and also available to meet you at your desire location or event for the photo shoot.
