Wedding Photography FAQ
What are your wedding photography packages?
I offer three complete wedding packages, starting at 6 hours of coverage with a single photographer, up to & beyond a package with 10 hours, three albums, and a second photographer. Please let me take this opportunity to mention that I am included in all of my wedding photography packages. I will be your photographer. Custom packages are always available. Please contact me for more details and my current price list.
Do you offer wedding photography for elopements and other more “intimate” weddings?
Yes! I love to photograph all kinds of weddings and celebrations, even if it’s just the two of you. I have an hourly rate for these types of events. This coverage cannot be booked more than 8 weeks in advance, unless it is on a weekday or sometime in the off-season (November – April). Please contact me for more details.
How many images should we expect to receive?
This is a great question. Usually, the number of delivered images will be between 50-100 images per hour of coverage. I realize that is a HUGE range, but it’s true. For an 8-hour wedding with two photographers, I typcally deliver around 700 images. Of course, the more “stuff” there is to photograph, the more images you will receive. By “stuff”, I mean more guests, more dancing, more rituals, more hugs & kisses, more laughter, more FUN, more speeches, more details…
What you will NOT receive is dozens of duplicate images. If I photograph several frames of one group of people, one shot of the cake, etc., I will deliver one (or 2-3 if they are different in some way) and save you the headache of sorting through them yourself.
When will we see our images?
I typically post a few favorite images to the Poppy Studio Facebook page within 7 days of the wedding, and the complete image gallery goes online 6 weeks after the wedding. 6-7 weeks after the wedding, you will receive your digital images on a custom USB drive, and you will also receive your printed proof book.
Do you photograph engagement sessions? Are digital images included?
Yes! I LOVE engagement sessions. They are included in all of my wedding packages of 6 or more hours. Engagement sessions may also be booked a la carte. You will receive the digital images from your engagement session (typically around 100 images). 3-4 weeks after the session, I will send the images to you on Dropbox, and I will also put them on the USB drive with your wedding images.
Sounds good! How do we book you for our wedding?
To book me for your wedding, I will need a signed contract and payment of $950 ($500 for weddings under 5 hours). This first payment is a non-refundable retainer that secures my services for your event.
The remaining balance will be split into two equal payments, due two months before & two weeks before your wedding date.
All contracts and payments can be done online.
