You have questions.... We have answers.

 

 

 

How much is required to put down to hold our wedding date? To book a wedding with us, we require two things. A contract and a deposit of 50%. This guarantees that your date is set and no one else can get it! Lots of brides and grooms are booking their dates well in advance, and the good vendors get booked quickly. My advice, book as soon as you know your date.

 

How do you prefer payment? Credit card or cash? Do you require any payment up front? 

To get the savings shown of 3% as listed from our websites we take cash or checks made out to Brentwood Photography. Credit cards, Square, and PayPal are also accepted but not with the 3% discount.

My Uncle has big SLR camera, and he said he could take pictures. Do we really need a professional photographer? -Sigh- This question/statement made is really the worst thing we as a professional could hear. Not because it could affect us finically, but because of the possible horror you could one day go through. I suggest just googling "What happened when I didn't hire a professional wedding photographer" and see what kind of stories come up. 

 

What is your typical turn-around time on photos? Will you mail the CD, or will I meet you to pick it up?

Turn around time to have a CD ready and waiting for you in the studio is 10 days. CD's can me mailed for a minor fee. Though If you prefer to forgo the CD,  I have been putting the images on a password protected, secure website. You get to download the images (full resolution with no loss of quality) directly from there, and you get the added benefit of being able to share the website with friends and family. There, they can see the images, and even order prints if they wish. And turn around for this is less than 7 days! (Times are typical but may not be set in stone due to volume of season, and or holidays.)

 

Do you prefer we pick the location or you? If you are at a loss of where to shoot,don't worry. We have been doing this a long time and know some pretty amazing spots. If you prefer a spot of your own thats great too. We actually like going to places we are unfamiliar with. It makes us usually look harder and the pictures can benefit from the extra effort. 

Would you like to scout out the location first? 

Not necessary. After years of practice in this art., we are perfectly fine and able to go to a place… any place, and be prepared. This is why you hire professionals. We come with the gear and the know how to turn any place with any lighting into the best it can be. So rest assured. 

 

The Wedding was fun, but I forget… what happens next? 

Go on your honeymoon and have a good time! I'll be in the studio working vigorously, drinking lots of RedBull like its going out of style. All because I try to get your picture proof disk back 7-14 days after the wedding! We will have the proof CD ready in the studio, but can mail them for our out of town'ers and IDoDestinationPhotography wedding packages. You will also get your photos online. This is the best place to select your photos for your album/book. Simply click on a photo, then look to the right and select the "Add to favorites” tab . This puts your selections in a folder that you then submit to me and Voila, you just submitted your top choices for your album. If this is too much for you, you can use the CD, then write the numbers down on paper or email and summit it. Though most clients tend to like the online once they get the hang of it. 

 

 

 

 

Ok, I picked out my pictures and sent them in to you, what next? Now that you sent me the photos for your book, we can begin to make you a proof album. Once the profound album is made I will send you a link to your proof book. We may go back and forth a of couple emails or phone calls, but once we get the book just the way you like it, we ship it directly to you! 

 

Why does the wedding link you sent me have two albums? One is the "Best of" album. This is just an album of what I consider the best of. You should probably use this album to share with friends and family, or Facebook. The "ALL" Album is just that... All your pictures. Lot of great ones in there too. It has every photo taken, as well as the original versions just in case (Maybe want color not BW). THIS ALBUM HAS EVERY PHOTO FULL RESOLUTION. JUST LIKE THE CD YOU WOULD HAVE. This is where you also download your pictures to your computer if you wish. (Download time can be great depending on amount of files and internet speed.)

 

Got my pictures back from the wedding… a few are blurry… why? Because we don't hide the fact that we are imperfect. To er is human no? Usually following a soft focus picture is the better picture, but maybe there was something in the first picture you would have loved. Rather than we decided what you see or not, we leave it for you to decide if you want to include it in your album or showings. 

 

Will the logo be on my pictures when I download them?  Have you even tried downloading one to see? LOL
Sorry but this one gets me a little. No the wax seal logo will not be there. Just click on any picture, look above it. See the download button and you have options to download just the one photo are all of them. Make your choice and once downloaded you will see.... no logo! =)



 

Why are you such an awesome, easy person to get along with? My mom raised me right!
