We call it the +anticipate shoot. Couples commonly say they feel uncomfortable in front of the camera or may question the pose or style chosen. For this purpose, the +anticipate session is essential. Engagement photography is a unique opportunity to get to know your photographer, while also becoming comfortable with being posed. Once you see your photos you will often feel a sense of ease and on your wedding day it will feel much more natural.
Will all my photos be posed?
No. There will be some posed photos but also a healthy mix of candid shots. If you prefer one or the other just let us know and we can focus more attention on what you prefer.
Do you charge for out of town weddings?
Depending on how far we have to travel. Generally we do not charge a traveling fee, but we do expect the couple to cover lodging for 1 or 2 nights depending on how far from Niagara the wedding is. If the drive is 2-3 hours or more generally a stay will be required. Event in Toronto or Vaughan? No charge. Event in Sarnia or Windsor? Yes an overnight would be required.
Do you do destination weddings?
Yes. We offer destination wedding services. Depending on where you go and how long the stay is the pricing will vary. Therefore the best bet is to set up a free consult and have a chat with us so we can create a custom package. Don’t worry, custom doesn’t mean it will cost you an arm and a leg. We have some amazing examples of destination weddings in Mexico and Jamaica.
Do we need to provide your crew seats and meals at our wedding?
Yes. It is important that we are in the event space so we can see when something is happening. If we’re capturing speeches and are seated in another room, we may miss something important. We also need food to fuel us. Generally there is not enough time to take a lunch break at weddings so feeding the team is necessary.
How many photos will I get?
Generally for a full day wedding with 1 photographer you will receive roughly 500 edited photos and with 2 photographer you will receive roughly 750+ edited photos. Our packages vary from 8 to 12 hours so that changes the amount of photos delivered.
Can I purchase the RAW images?
We do not release RAW images. We edit and deliver the best images to you. On the video side, it’s challenging to include everything we’ve captured which is why we offer the add-on option for RAW video.
How long will our photos/films take to complete?
Our contract states within 6 months the entire package will be complete. Our goal is to always have your wedding completed as soon as possible (we know you’re excited to see everything). We get busy, therefore all couples are placed in queue. Quality is key, we take our time and follow our procedures to ensure the best possible product. If you’re patient you won’t be disappointed.
How much time do I need for my formal photos?
Generally we ask for 1.5 to 2 hours. We can make it work with less time but if the crunch is on we may not have the opportunity for exploration and experimentation with the non-formal shots.
