TOP QUESTIONS TO ASK ANY PHOTOGRAPHER

1. Do you have photos of entire weddings that I can see?

Yes we take pride in our work and would love for you to see one of our sample wedding collections. This way, you can better judge our work and see how we photograph the entire spectrum of a wedding―the bride and groom getting ready, the ceremony, the reception, and the portraits. Just shoot us an email requesting it and we’ll give you access to view one of our collections.

2. Do you have references I can call?

Absolutely! We aim to please and all of our clients will tell you so. You’ll be surprised by how far we go out of our way to make sure that you have complete satisfaction. Don’t believe us? Ask to speak with two or three of our former brides…and we’ll provide you with their contact info.

3. Do you post the proofs online, or will I receive negatives?

We post our proofs online under the “Client Area” tab. We know your time is important so we’ve made everything as seamless as possible. Under the “Client Area” tab, you’ll be able to view your photos, select prints, make payments – you name it. The proofs from your wedding will remain online for 90 days and after that they are available upon request.

4. Who will be photographing my wedding?

Our chief photographer is Alex Kotei but he manages a team of assistants who have the same commitment to excellence and attention to detail.

5. When will my proofs, prints, and wedding album be available?

We know how excited you are to see the pictures from the big event so we make it a priority to have a prompt turnaround. Here’s what you can expect-

  • 1-2 Weeks after event – Album design ready, blog teaser posted or digital copies reviewed
  • 2-3 Weeks after event – Proofs are available online
  • 3-5 Weeks after event – Album and/or digital copy is delivered (this depends on how much revision is required from the original album)

6. What type of cameras do you use?

I use a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 7D plus enough bells and whistles to capture photos that are guaranteed to captivate. I also have a series of different lenses so I can get creative angles and unique photos from completely different vantage points. Want to know more about my bling? I love showing it off and could go on and on about it – just ask!

7. Do you work well with videographers?

Not only do I work well with videographers, I married one. I have a very intimate understanding of how to work with videographers, because my wife and I would often tag team events. When covering an event with a videographer, I make sure to introduce myself and touch base on the plan for shooting the event prior to the start. That goes a long way towards us respecting one another and giving the event our very best.
