We do not live near you. Do we have to meet in person to book you?
Thank goodness for modern technology! Most brides and grooms are comfortable with a phone call or video chat to go over all the details before making the big decision to book. We also understand you have busy lives and meeting in person can sometimes be tough. So “date nights” online are fun and really allows for us all to connect in the comfort of our homes.
How do we pick out the photos for our wedding album? And how many do we get to pick?
I am going to put all of my efforts, design knowledge, and experience with you guys to make what I like to call the “Everything, but the Kitchen Sink Album”. These albums range from 30-50 spreads (60-80 pages). They are Big, Badass, Beautiful Heirlooms that will tell the very best detailed story of your wedding. Picking the images for your album can be a daunting task and I want to take that stress away from you and use all my skills to make something you’re proud to open again and again. I totally understand the importance of this multi-generational investment and will do my very best to tell a well-rounded story. I promise in 10, 20, and even 30 years from now, this money will seem like pennies spent as your kids and grandkids recall this incredible day in your family’s life. Together, we are going to make one AMAZING album.
How long does an album order take and how many revisions do we get?
Using my eye for detail, composition, and balance, along with the details you discussed with me, I will guide you through this easy process entirely. This ensures an unmistakable fusion of emotion and style for your chosen artwork. It is your story, so it’s important for all decision makers to get involved as artists. I will predesign your album and present it to you at the big reveal several weeks after the wedding! We can make revisions together at that time. Final delivery of your album takes 4-6 weeks after approval of the design. Well worth the wait!
What is an Online Gallery and why archive?
Online galleries are included in our collections. It allows your photos to be stored online “in the cloud” safely for 2 years. It also allows you to Facebook share & download straight from the Gallery. We highly suggest you download your photos and back them up in at least two places in two locations.
What is Print Copyright? What are my rights with my photos?
Digital Negatives are included in our collections. These photos are fully edited and downloaded by you, the client, for your keeping. We provide the digital photos for archival purposes. They are not to be copied or shared with family or anyone else. You will be given a copyright PRINT release so that you may print on your own. No photos can be edited, altered, sold or published. If you decide to submit your wedding or you are approached for a feature or publication, forward them to Leaha and we can help you resize and submit the photos!
Why does your photography seem so expensive?
We do not just pull a number out of the air, I promise. We have set fair hourly wages for the number of hours we work shooting and editing/processing. We also must take into consideration all of the travel, gear, repairs, gas, etc that goes into every single session and wedding. We assure you that you will get every penny’s worth of service, care & amazing products from your investment. We are willing to work out payment plans to assure that you can get the amazing quality work you deserve. To give you an idea of how much time goes into the process.
Engagement Session – 7 Hours to pack, travel, shoot, travel back and unpack
Download & Edit/Upload – 20 Hours
Wedding Day – 15 Hour minimum to pack, travel, shoot, travel back, unpack, download, edit Sneak Peaks, backup images
*Then an additional few weeks to fully edit the wedding. We color correct & touch up EVERY photo.*
What exactly is editing?
Editing means many things to many people and photographers. My end goal result as a photographer is to make sure my bride looks like the best version of herself. All wedding day photography is color corrected and select images from the day may be retouched or black and white conversions used at my discretion. Further retouching such as skin imperfections, removal of objects and Photoshop work is offered at an additional fee. Any photo that goes to print on the wall or in an album will be fully retouched for no extra fee.
What are the Event Cards for?
We create cute little business cards with your engagement photo on one side and your names on the other. This tiny little card will guide your guests into finding your wedding gallery and showing them how to access the photos for themselves. These cards will be given out at the beginning of the day to the bride and the remaining cards will be placed at the bar during the reception.
We want to book you! What is our next step?
