How long does it take to get my album?
There are several work flows involved. After having a selection of images to go in the album, a custom design takes about 2-3 weeks. The amount of time it takes you to approve or submit changes for the album is dependent on you. Once the album design is approved, generally the album is received in about 6 weeks. If your album has metallic paper, turnaround may be 8 weeks.
What is a bridal session?
A bridal session is a time to take pictures of you on a day different than your wedding day. It’s a Southern tradition that started when parents wanted their daughter\’s wedding announcement to run in the paper the Sunday after their Saturday wedding. However, it has grown into session that allows the bride to have more fashion-oriented images taken at a location different from where she is getting married and without the stress and time constraints of the wedding day.
Do we have to decide what type of album we want before the wedding?
No. You may purchase an album a la carte after your wedding. Our advice is this: If dad is paying for your wedding, go ahead and include the album now because he wants to write one check and be done with wedding expenses afterward. If you are paying for the wedding yourselves, its ok to take time to recover from wedding expenses and get an album for your one year anniversary!
Do I decide which images go in the album or do you?
Yes, you may be involved as much are as little as you like in the design process. Please understand though that if you start making more than a few changes to an album design additional design expenses will be accrued.
Do you carry back up equipment?
Yes. We always carry back up equipment, and shoots onto two cards at once in many cases. It is virtually impossible for us to lose your photographs due to a camera or card malfunction.
What will you wear?
Our team will be dressed in all black or Sunday Dress as to not draw attention to ourselves. Our goal is to get the best shots without causing any distractions.
Can other people take photos while you are taking photos?
Absolutely! However we ask that others not photograph our formal group shots so that we can keep everyone\’s attention. The last thing you want is to get your pictures back with everyone looking at another camera.
What Camera do you shot with?
We have the newest professional and top-of-the line digital photography equipment available on the market today so that you can be assured your wedding day is caught on high quality, digitally enhanced photos that will last for a lifetime. We bring back-up cameras, an assortment of lenses, flashes, and other equipment to each event.
