Answers to all of your questions
What should we expect?
You will a receive a beautiful taylor made wedding collection that includes the amount of coverage that best suits your day, two photographers and an online gallery where you can view and purchase your favorite images. If you would like to receive the digital files, you may add those to the coverage of your choice, however we would love to gift these to you if you choose to invest in a wedding album.
How does the album design process work?
I enjoy designing albums and nearly every one of my couples orders one. I think there is no better way to display your invaluable memories but within a beautifully crafted album. I found through the years, my couples have a difficult time sifting through what is usually well over 1000 images to select the best ones. I now create the first draft of the album, selecting the most impactful images that tell a beautiful and complete story of your wedding day. I will present this beautiful custom designed draft to you both and together you can request changes page by page. You will be submitting up to two rounds of modifications.
We will work together on choosing the best size, cover color, imprinting and other small details to make it fit you and your home decor and once all the album design decisions have been made; it goes to print.
The whole process can be completed online simply and easily. The album takes about 6 to 8 weeks to produce (printing, stacking, cutting, binding, covering, inspecting), and be delivered to your door.
What will the completed album look like?
I have been working with an amazing album company that allows me to provide my couples with a clean and classic album design. The albums are fresh, modern books; very similar to a coffee table book. I consider these books to be an heirloom for future generations. You can see more detailed photographs and find out more about these gorgeous albums by clicking on Handcrafted Wedding Books.
How long does it take before we receive our products and photographs?
Weddings come around once in a lifetime and the excitement surrounding these beautiful events is great. I don't want you to wait too long to see your photos and this is why I work really hard to have them finalized in about 4 weeks.
About a month after your wedding, we will be meeting in the comfort of your home to review your beautiful photographs, and you will also have the opportunity to purchase additional albums for your parents, as well as products and prints to decorate your home. After this meeting you will receive an invitation to your password protected online gallery.
Expect to receive your custom made products and prints 2 to 4 weeks after you have placed your order.
Albums will arrive 6 to 8 weeks after you have approved the final album design, to allow for production time.
How many photographs should we expect?
My average is between 70 and 100 images per hour of coverage, but these numbers vary depending on the day and the hours I am with you. So for example, if I am covering your event for 8 hours this will translate in 560 to 800 final images.
Do you provide a print and distribution release?
Yes, and you can print your photographs wherever you want. You can also post them on the internet if you wish (facebook, e-mail, twitter, Instagram, etc.). I also work closely with a lab from where you can print any of your beautiful images if you want them done well and these services can be accessed through your online photo gallery.
Do you have a list of preferred vendors to use?
From wedding coordinators, to florists and caterers, I have worked with many talented and dedicated individuals who are passionate about their craft. I will be happy to share their information with you.
Do you have a limit on coverage time or the number of photos taken on wedding day?
I never have any limits on photos taken. For a more typical wedding day, we can work together to customize collections to best meet your needs. I only book one wedding per day, so I am at your wedding for as long as you need me throughout the day. This can mean 8 hours, 10 hours or 12 hours.
We're having a destination wedding. Do you travel?
Yes! I love destination weddings and have been lucky enough to travel for weddings in a number of beautiful locations. Destination weddings are unique and I'm honored to be part of such a special experience. Whether you are planning a wedding back home or in an exotic location, I am more than happy to travel for our destination needs. Travel fees may be applicable to locations further than 100 miles from Rockville, Maryland. Send me more information on your travel plans, and I will create a custom collection to suit your needs.
