FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Below are some of the more frequently asked questions asked from brides and grooms.  If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us.

GENERAL FAQ

Where are you based out of?

We are based in Corona, CA here in beautiful Southern California.

What do you offer in your wedding packages?

Currently, all of our wedding packages consist of the following:

  • An engagement session
  • At least 6 hours of wedding day coverage
  • Online gallery of images
  • High resolution digital images on a USB flash drive

As every couple and budget is different,we do offer a la carte menu options to make it easy to easily customize a package to meet your needs.  In the end, it is YOUR day and we want to make sure you get what you want! =)

Will you travel outside of Southern California for our wedding?

Fast answer…ABSOLUTELY!  We love to travel, if you didn’t already gather that from getting to know us.   We have been to the to such places like the Napa, Maui, and the Philippines to document our couples’ special days.  We have special destination packages for wedding outside of the Southern California, so be sure to ask us about it.

We are looking for a photography + videography package. Do you also do video?

Our company does not offer video coverage at the moment, but we would be more than happy to recommend some of our videography colleagues that we have worked with.

RESERVING OUR DATE FAQ

We have seen enough and are convinced that you two are our wedding photographers. What are the steps to reserving our date?

That is great news!  In order to reserve your date, contact us to get access to our contract form if you have not done so already.  Once you know what wedding package you want and have fully completed the contract, the only step left is send us a 20% of the total package non-refundable retainer, which we will send through invoice.   We accept checks, credit, or even cash.  Once we have received the retainer and the signed contract, you have successfully reserved your date!

How long can you hold our date for if we have not reserved the date yet?

We do not typically hold wedding dates as we work on a first come, first serve basis.  This means that the first to send us a signed contract and non-refundable retainer reserves the date.  As a courtesy to the others inquiring about our services on the same date, we will let everyone involved know that there are multiple interests for the same date.

ON THE WEDDING DAY FAQ

What is a First Look? Why should I consider this option rather than the more traditional option?

A First Look is a special moment where the bride and groom see each other alone for the first time all dolled up and in their wedding attire PRIOR to the wedding ceremony.  It’s a time to relax before all the big events of the day happen.  The advantage of having a first look is reflected in the wedding day timeline.  Immediately after the first look, we can go straight to portraits of the bride and groom, then the bridal party, and afterwards all family photos.  This would all be done prior to the ceremony, so after the ceremony, you are free to relax and enjoy a majority of cocktail hour with those guests that traveled from afar to visit you.

How many photos do you take during the wedding day and how many can we expect to receive?

We typically shoot anywhere from 60-80 images an hour.  So for example, if your wedding package called for 10 hours, you can expect to receive anywhere form 600-800 images.

AFTER THE WEDDING DAY FAQ

How soon after our wedding can we expect to receive all the images?

We usually show a sneak peek of your wedding images on the blog and/or Facebook within the first few days.  We then go over and color-correct and enhance all the rest of the images.  We take out any duplicates and outtakes and then upload all of the retouched images onto an online gallery within 4-6 weeks.  From this online gallery, you will be able to download all the high resolution images, but you will also receive a USB thumbdrive of all these images.

We loved working with you and absolutely love all our wedding images. You guys rock! How can we possibly repay you?

We appreciate all the love and all we ask is for an honest review of our services on these three websites:

  • WeddingWire
  • Yelp
  • Google Review

Every review we receive keeps us doing what we love to do!
