AMEIGH PHOTOGRAPHY WEDDINGS
Explore some Frequently Asked Questions to find out if we'll be a great fit for your wedding photography needs.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
My goal is to capture the story that is your wedding day, therefore I tend to capture a lot of candids. The emotion. However, I realize that posed shots can be a lot of fun and are certainly necessary to help tell your story. I also find it important to capture the details you worked so hard to incorporate. Those touches will be long gone after your wedding day, but will be forever captured in your photos.
WHAT TYPE OF CAMERA EQUIPMENT WILL YOU BRING?
When I began my professional photography business, I started investing a large percentage of my earnings into the best equipment to make sure you get the best quality out of my photography work. My cameras and lenses produce beautiful, sharp, colorful images even in challenging lighting situations.
Camera bodies: Canon 5D Mark IV
Canon 5D Mark III
Lenses: Tamron 70-200, f2.8, Canon 24-75, f2.8, Canon Macro 100mm, f2.8, Canon EF 35mm L II USM, f1.4
WHAT TYPE OF LIGHTING EQUIPMENT DO YOU BRING?
I have invested in high quality lighting equipment to produce excellent quality in low light situations that sometimes arise at weddings and receptions.
On Camera Flash: Canon 600EX Speedlight, 2 Yongnuo speedlights with modifiers (bounce, diffusers)
Off Camera Flash: 1 AlienBee 800 strobe, 1 AlienBee 400 strobe + modifiers
WILL YOU BE USING LIGHTING DURING MY CEREMONY AND/OR RECEPTION?
I try very hard not to use flash during a wedding ceremony. In fact, many churches would not allow it. If needed, I will get it out and use it for family portraits following a church ceremony. I prefer natural light in any situation if it is good enough to produce beautiful photographs, but you have to be prepared for anything at various wedding locations. Lighting needs will vary from venue to venue and time of day. I come prepared!
WHAT IS THE EDITING PROCESS LIKE?
Let's use an 8 hour wedding as an example. My second shooter and I usually take 2,500 - 3,500 pictures. Those will get narrowed down to about 650-850 images. We look for the ones that show emotion, tell your story, and the best of each posed shots we take. Images are sorted into categories: Preparation, Ceremony, Portraits, Reception. Images are retouched: crop, check white balance, exposure, etc. When they're all finished, I will upload them into your digital gallery through a service called Pixieset.
**Small Wedding packages will get a great variety of images, but can expect to receive less than noted above because I am there less time.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RETURN MY GALLERY AFTER THE WEDDING?
I can guarantee you your images in 4 weeks after your wedding date. However, I strive to be faster. I know you're chomping at the bit to get them and I like to be quick! Most of my weddings galleries are returned in 7-9 days.
WILL MY FINAL IMAGES BE IN COLOR OR BLACK AND WHITE?
I will give you a color copy of everything and black and white copy of approximately 10% of your photos.
DO YOU REQUIRE A CONTRACT AND A DEPOSIT?
Yes, I do require a signed contract to hold your wedding date on my books. I require a $350 non-refundable deposit.
DO YOU ALLOW ME TO SHARE MY IMAGES ONLINE?
Absolutely! I hope you do. You will have full rights to share, download, and print your images.
