Wedding Photographer Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions.
When planning your wedding day and searching for the perfect photography team to hire. There are tons of questions you might have before booking with them. Here are some of our most frequent asked questions and our answers.
Do you travel for weddings?
- Yes, we do. We have traveled to Key West, West Palm Beach, New York, California, Italy, Jamaica and Australia. Plus many more. We calculate the cost of travel and incorporate that into the final payment for your wedding collection. We will make all the travel arrangements so you do not have to worry at all. We have full galleries for you to view of our destination weddings. We want you to see that we get so inspired by new places to photograph at. And how we thrive on the adventures.
Do you release the images to your clients?
Yes. We deliver all sessions with images in high resolution via a digital download gallery link. And all weddings will receive a single USB drive and a download gallery link. To share with all your friends and family. No watermarks. We do not release any RAW files to clients. If this is something you are interested in, we are open to have a discussion and see if we can accommodate your request.
Do you have an assistant or second photographer available for weddings?
Yes, Ashlee and Jason always shoot and work together for weddings. We love that you get to know the both of your photographers for your wedding day. Some collections only provide Ashlee as the main photographer and Jason will act as Ashlee's assistant. Other collections will provide Ashlee and Jason as your main photographers. And if you hire us for a larger wedding where we will require an assistant, we will notify you throughout the booking process.
If neither Ashlee nor Jason are available due to sickness or death, we use another professional photographer from our network that we love and trust. And who fit our style of photography and professionalism.
When and How will I receive my wedding photographs?
It takes us anywhere between 6-8 weeks for delivery of your images depending on the time of year. We will let you know when you book when we expect to have your final delivery of your photographs. And you receive your photographs via an online gallery and USB drive.
Do we receive all of our wedding photographs?
Absolutely! The only photographs we do not deliver are the ones where there might be eyes closed that should be opened, or unflattering photographs that we know you won't want. On average we deliver 75-100 images per hour hired. So, if we are hired for an 8 hour wedding day there will be at least 600 photographs on your USB and gallery. But, to be honest we deliver way more than that. Between 900-1,500. Sometimes we just can't decide and we would rather have you decide which ones you prefer to have. So we will deliver them both to you. We do not send you an RAW or unedited photographs. The photographs you have seen from us sharing, have all been edited. We believe you are hiring us for our editing style. So we deliver all photographs edited to that style.
Do you shoot Digital or Film?
Currently, at Ashlee Nicole Photography all of our portrait sessions will be including film into them. Now when we say film, yes we are saying, the old school way of taking photographs. Where you had to send your pictures to a lab to be processed. We are in the process of adding film into our wedding collections. If you are interested in the art of film and would love to have us capture the raw essence look of film for your wedding day we would love to talk with you more about the options you have. And showcase to you the art of film for your wedding day.
Do you offer printing options?
Yes, we do. We work with our wedding, as well as, our portrait clients in making sure they have a full service experience with us. From inquiring to ordering and receiving of your prints. Some of our collections for wedding photography offer a print credit. This is a credit you would use towards printing your wedding photographs. We do offer more than just prints. We offer canvas, as well as, albums for our clients and their families
When do I receive my photographs from my engagement session?
We have a turn around time of one to two weeks for our portrait sessions. On date of session you will be notify when gallery will be delivered.
How do we book?
We will send you a contract and an invoice through our booking program. We require one payment to be made via the invoice and our contract to be signed. And then its official you are booked. We offer to payment plan options. Once you have inquired we will discuss this all with you.
Can we meet with you before we book?
Absolutely! We love meeting with you and getting to know you. We offer consultation in person. But we also offer, FaceTime or Zoom dates to chat and put a face to our names if you are booking from our of the state or country.
Are you available to work with our budgets?
We understand money can be a very scary and sometimes difficult thing to talk about. But we would love to set up a consult to chat with you about some options to work with budgets. One, if your wedding is on a weekday or Sunday. Two, if your wedding is in our off season. Three, if your planning last minute and we have the date available.
