Frequently Asked Wedding Photography Questions
Throughout the years of photographing weddings, and engagement sessions, our future brides and grooms ask many of the same questions. We have created this page to answer some of the most popular ones that we continually receive. If you don’t find the answer here, please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
Why should we choose you?
Our mission was to create an environment that allowed us to deliver the ultimate experience, one with the outstanding story telling and level of service we knew our clients deserved on the most important day of their lives. We are both passionate visual storytellers, deeply committed to capturing our couple’s stories as they unfold with a mixture of elegant, classic and stylish imagery. If our work, passion, and personalities speak to you, than we are for you and you are for us! Check out this little video to see what makes L&M different.
Who will be our photographers?
Because we only accept a limited number of weddings per year we are able to provide our clients with unmatched service and attention to detail. You will be working directly with the two of us. We will be photographing your wedding and working with you side by side from your initial consultation through final delivery of your album and artwork.
Do you offer engagement session?
YES! Engagement sessions are a great opportunity to get amazing images and artwork for your home and to give you a lot of diversity. It also allows you to get comfortable in front of our cameras. You don't want the first time we point a camera at you to be on your wedding day. AND we have a lot of fun ; )
Do you offer digital files?
YES! We provide our couples with high resolution, hand edited digital files.
Do you offer wedding albums?
YES! Creating a beautiful custom designed, hand crafted album delivered after the wedding day is one of the most gratifying parts of the process for us! This album will be your family’s first heirloom; it’s something we take great pride in creating.
We totally understand wanting to visit a wedding photographers site and be able to view pricing without having to ask. However, we’ve found that simply providing a bulleted list of pricing creates more questions than answers. Wedding photography and wedding as a whole are something very emotional. You need to know you like us, that we have a connection, and that we get you and get what your vision is. That can only be done by talking to us, meeting with us, being able to see/touch/feel albums and everything we have to offer. We invite you to contact us to setup a meeting so we can hear all about your big day and walk you through all of our options.
Do you come to the rehearsal?
Rehearsal dinner coverage is available as an add-on to your wedding coverage.
Do you photograph details and family group photos?
YES! Documenting your wedding day would not be complete without great details and family photos, and we take all the photographs you would expect out of any wedding photographer. But our goal is to also go beyond that and give you imagery that you never even imagined.
Do you travel?
YES! We love to travel! We’ve made it very simple. We take care of all of our travel arrangements. If our travel requires airfare, hotel, or rental car all we require is a reimbursement of those fees.
Can we make an appointment to meet with you?
Definitely! Click to contact us.
But we are from out of town. What do we do?
Not a problem! If you are unable to make it into the studio we will simply have our meeting in our personal video chat room : )
Should I give you a shot list?
Our wedding day coverage is very thorough, including photos of your dress, jewelry, shoes, flowers, food and reception décor. There is no need to give us a shot list. The only list we will ask for is your list of family group shots.
How do we hire you?
A signed agreement and retainer of $1,000 is required to lock us in for your wedding day. We reserve dates on a first come-first serve basis. So don’t wait, as we accept no more than 3 weddings per month with some months filling up almost 2 years in advance.
Do you have insurance?
YES! If your venue requires a certificate of liability just let us know and we will get that over to them.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We use top of the line Canon professional cameras, and lenses, along with Profoto lighting, with extensive backups.
