How far in advance do we need to reserve our date?
As soon as you and your fiancé decide that you would like me to photograph your wedding. It all comes down to availability and with most things, the sooner the better.
We don’t arrive on the island until the day before our wedding, how will we have our pre-consultation?
I am available on Skype and we can agree on a time and date most suitable for the both of us to meet one another and go through all of the relevant details regarding your wedding photography requirements. This pre-consultation also helps me to get to know the two of you as a couple and start to picture the style of photography to be taken on your big day! *Ahh! … The joys of technology*
I really want to do the Trash the Dress session, but I don’t want to ruin my dress.
No problem! I have never had a bride that has truly ruined her dress during this session. Trash the Dress session is simply beautiful for the setting and relaxed environment you are in as opposed to on your wedding day and this is ultimately why people do it. You most certainly do not need to ruin your dress to get these fantastic images. I will definitely become one with the sea & sand but nothing that a good ole’ dry clean can’t handle.
How many images do you provide and how many are edited?
Each of my packages specify how many final images you will be receiving. This is an average minimum amount; if there are more, I provide more.
How will we see these images if we are leaving the same day as the wedding?
This also depends on your chosen package. Generally it will take between 2-6 weeks to complete your wedding images. I will then upload your album to my website & secure it by creating a client login and password that will be provided to you via e-mail or telephone. You will be able to view your images in the comfort of your own home and even send over your client login information to friends and family that perhaps couldn’t make it on your big special day.
As soon as I am finished editing your final images I will start to prepare your final package which includes (1) 5×7 bordered print along with a personalised memory stick with your images in high resolution format to keep for always. Scroll all the way down to see what the package will look like.
For US, Canada & UK this registered shipping can take up to 2-weeks.
Can we use these final images to make prints & do they have your logo across them?
These images are high resolution jpegs which you can print as many times at whatever sizes you wish. My logo will NOT be on or across these images; these are yours to do with them what you wish. It is what you paid for.
Do you also provide videography services?
I do not personally provide videography services, as I think it is important to focus all of my time photographing your wedding and editing thereafter. I can, however, recommend an amazing videographer on the island, Bianca Hadeed of I Do Video Art. You can check out her work at www.idovideoart.com or email her at email@example.com.
Are you able to assist with any other areas regarding our wedding?
Of course! Once we are booked there are many areas that I can assist in as far as the flowers, locations, hairstylist, makeup artist etc. For all transportation and/or tour bookings may I highly recommend Facilitators Unlimited Inc. Fantastic service with incredibly friendly staff. They offer transfers for you and your wedding party to and from your hotel/cruise terminal and even include a photo stop at one of our many fantastic locations on the island. You may check them out at www.facilitatorsunlimited.com.
I’m not very photogenic and am not 100% comfortable in front of a camera.
Experience in the fashion industry has made it easy for me to pose my subjects. Full direction of posing will be given to both the bride & the groom to ensure amazing photographs! If you’re not feeling it, I will I will put down my camera for a couple of minutes and chat with you until you are comfortable. I’ve had many clients mention that they literally hate being in front of the camera and after their wedding tell me how incredibly comfortable they were in front of my lens.
We love your work and want to book you, how do we proceed?
Fantastic! At this point we will schedule our pre consultation at a location most convenient for you and your fiancé and arrange your deposit to be paid to secure your date.
