FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS | PHOTOGRAPHY
Do you provide digital files? Yes — all Love & Lens packages include your images in both color, as well as black & white. Your ready-to-print high-resolution JPEG image files are capable of being enlarged to 3-foot prints and canvases.
How do we receive our images? Within three weeks of your wedding day, you’ll receive a link to your online gallery with privacy code (if you’d like to remove a few images from public view), and a download code allowing you to quickly transfer your images. Then, share the link with the world and relive the fun of your day!
Do you edit our images? Each image is individually optimized to be scene accurate, true to the actual look of your day. Brightness, color tone and saturation, as well as 14 other adjustment parameters are evaluated on every image. Custom re-touching and stylizing is available at additional cost through your wedding gallery website.
Do you place a limit on the images you shoot? No — at a typical full day wedding we click the shutter about 2,000 times. You receive 60-110 images per coverage hour on your wedding day. In other words, a 6-hour wedding coverage would contain around 600 images.
How would you describe the style of Love & Lens photographers? 70% candid/observational, and 30% posed. The majority of your images are captured without anyone’s knowledge, recording the day as it happens. Most events also include a 25-minute family group session and some alone time with the bride+groom for exclusive, romantic images.
With the popularity of social media image sites like Instagram and Pinterest, there’s been a renewed interest in posed wedding images. These often take longer to set up than is possible in the frenzy of a wedding day. If you hope for a lot of posed photos, consider our longer 8-hour coverage package — SPRUCE — or adding a separate bridal or day-after photo session. With a separate session, there’s no timeline stress or worry about the details of the day. We’ll have plenty of time to create those bridal magazine portraits you’ve dreamed of... brides around the world may soon be pinning YOUR wedding images.
We’re happy to chat anytime to hear about your photo dreams and help you pick the service level that matches your vision!
How do we book you for our wedding? We have a limited number of prime wedding coverage dates available. Inquire about availability and book as soon as possible to avoid being disappointed that we’ve booked with another couple. We book as far out as 18 months in advance. Reach to us sooner than later — we’re happy to talk about wedding photography anytime!
