Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WE’RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING. DO YOU TRAVEL?
A: Yes! Send us more information on your travel plans, and we will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs. For weddings within the GTA there are no extra travel fees.
Q: HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?
A: A 30% deposit and signed contract is required in order to get your wedding day on the calendar. The remainder of the balance is due prior to your wedding day.
Q: HOW LONG BEFORE THE WEDDING SHOULD I BOOK MY PHOTOGRAPHER?
A: To avoid disappointment you should book at least 12 months in advance, but ideally between 12 – 18 months or more if you can. We take on limited bookings each year, so even if we have your date available, if our roster is full we won’t be taking on additional weddings.
Q: DO I HAVE TO GO WITH ONE OF YOUR COLLECTIONS SHOWN ON YOUR WEBSITE?
A: Nope! They are all fully customizable. Just send us a list of everything you are looking for and we can build your own tailor-made package for you.
Q: HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I SCHEDULE FOR THE PHOTO SESSION?
A: The below times are ideal and based on averages. Every wedding is different so feel free to ask us to go through all of the nitty gritty to get your best timeline down.
Getting ready: 1 hour+
Family & group shots: 20 – 40 min
Newlywed photo session: 30 – 60 min +
Wedding party photo session: 30 min+
Decor & detail shots: 20 – 30 min
Q: HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE?
A: You will receive between 700 to 1000 edited images for full day wedding coverage and about 300 to 500 edited images for half day.
Q: HOW LONG AFTER OUR WEDDING CAN WE EXPECT OUR PHOTOS?
A: All editing is done in-house, by perfectionists, and in order of wedding date. If your wedding is from January to June, you can expect to receive your photographs within one to three months. If your wedding falls between July and December, you can expect to receive your photographs within three to four months. As we totally understand the anticipation can be overwhelming, we will send you a montage of about twenty sneak peek images within one week of your wedding day.
Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
A: We use professional Nikon cameras as well as a range of professional Nikon zoom and prime lenses. For lighting, we use non-intrusive Nikon Speedlights whenever we need to fill shadows and lift subjects. We also have portable studio lighting for those indoor photo sessions in dark spaces.
Q: DO YOU SHOOT WITH A SHOT LIST?
A: After capturing over 100 weddings, the shot list is well and truly in our heads. We come prepared on the day with the lists and poses requested by you and we highly recommend a family shot list be given so that no precious family member is missed.
Q: DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE COVERAGE?
A: Yes! We have liability coverage and our property and equipment are also insured.
Q: DO I HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
A: We highly recommend ordering prints through our professional vendors, but it is not required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab and there is greater control over the output, so we encourage clients to let us help with prints. Ask us for our current a la carte menu for a full list of printing options.
Q: WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND ON THE HOURS OF COVERGE?
A: We are very flexible and are happy to change the hours of photography coverage, whether you are changing a package entirely, adding hours, or even subtracting them, as long as it’s done prior to your date. Should you wish to add hours on the day that is absolutely fine.
Q: WILL WE GET THE PRINT RELEASE TO OUR PHOTOS AFTER OUR WEDDING?
A: Yes! Your photos are given to you in high resolution and un-marked with full permission to print.
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE THE RAW FILES?
Our packages don’t include the unedited and RAW images in accordance with industry practice. The RAW files are just that, the raw ingredient in what makes up your final image and are unusable unless you have professional photography or graphic designer software.
Q: HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL THERE BE AT OUR WEDDING?
A: All of our packages and sessions come with two photographers. Not only will you get double the coverage and a 360º view of your day, but you have us to guide and help you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF ONE OF MY PHOTOGRAPHERS GETS SICK?
A: In the extremely unlikely situation that one of us can no longer make it due to illness or an unexpected event, we will substitute them with one of our qualified back-up photographers.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS ON MY WEDDING DAY?
A: We can work with you on a plan b option for your photographs should rain be in the forecast. Having a beautiful umbrella handy never hurts.
