What can I expect during the entire process working together?
One- two months away from your wedding I'll follow up to gather updated wedding details for our photography timeline. We can Skype, meet in person or just chat over the phone! The timeline will be specifically related to photography, so make sure you have a coordinator help with all other logistics. Photography is a team effort and I will need to be in contact with the bride and groom if you are a parent or family member inquiring on their behalf.
Most importantly be prepared for some good laughs and a silly sense of humor, because we love to laugh!! We'll quickly become best buds and I hope to stay in touch with you even after the wedding as your family grows.
I aim to work as quickly and efficiently as possible so your event begins promptly on time. Although portraits may require more time depending on everyone's cooperation. I strongly recommend planning 60-90 minutes of solid portrait time. Of course this isn't straight shooting. This gives us time to do different posing and for you to not feel rushed .
Do you offer second-angle photographer services?
You want a second-angle photographer if you...:
-Wish to do a pre-ceremony first look with your future spouse
-Want ONLY Erika Grace to photograph you getting ready, while your future spouse is photographed by the second photographer. Helping the getting ready portion to finish at the same time.
-Expect more than 120 guests at the wedding
-Enjoy candid moments and want to remember your guests enjoying cocktail hour while Erika Grace is photographing cocktail hour formal portraits.
-Foresee multiple venues incorporated into her wedding day (EX: getting ready a separate venue, ceremony & reception also separate)
-OR simply LOVES photography and the beauty of different angles/perspectives a second photographer brings
If you have questions or concerns about second angle photography don't hesitate to ask. Sometimes a second photographer isn't needed, but you can never go wrong with the added reassurance.
I strongly encourage First Looks for a few reasons:
-Socialize with your loved ones during cocktail hour vs photographing and making your guests wait.
-It's a peaceful and intimate moment alone with just you and your future spouse. Added to your wedding book!
-It's a smooth intro to begin family, bridal party, and bride and groom formals before ceremony. Once again, alleviating your time during cocktail hour.
-If ceremony is too close to sundown with a lack of natural light, we need to move formal portraits before ceremony.
Can I have the printing rights to my photos?
Do you sell USB drives?
How do you design the wedding books?
-Genuine Leather, Faux Leather & Linen cover options- each with a variety of color options to fit your style
-15pages (30 front/back)
-60 to 80 images on average- to highlight all the main parts of your big day from getting ready, decor, ceremony, formals, reception,etc.
-Modern design with a variety of image sizes
I allow my clients to have final approval of the book design created by me. Need a visual? Download the pdfs below.
How much retouching will you perform on my photos? Ya know...can you "photoshop that out".
Can I give you a shot list? I have specific photo requests.
It's my duty to document all those important sweet moments throughout the day, although my shot list is considered goal oriented. It's subject to change depending on the wedding schedule changing/starts late, or any unforeseen limitations interfere.
What's Golden Hour?
Your wedding day photos are backed up (twice) after the wedding. My contract does protect my clients and myself in case accidents happen. In the occurrence of a mechanical or technical interference I reimburse a credit to my clients.
Are you insured?
How soon do you book up?
If you are planning a destination wedding and can not meet with me in person before the wedding , then we can speak over the phone and/or Skype with processing paperwork electronically.
