WEDDING FAQs THE ART OF RELATIONSHIP
Q: What type of wedding photography style do you do?
Our style is a mix of photojournalism combined with fashion-forward portraits . We will capture your day unobtrusively, preferring to naturally blend in with friends and family laughing, similing, crying of joy and dancing.
We do request a small period of time (around 30 – 45 minutes) alone with the bride and groom to
steal some more crafted, creative shots. Thoughout the day, we will capture all of
the details from cake to shoes, kiss to toasts.
Q: Do you travel?
Absolutely. We will meet you at your wedding location of choice,
Portland, Seattle, San Francisco or beyond. We have shot weddings in Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Mexico and are expanding our
business to include travel to Eastern Europe, Hawaii and Asia. *Please
inquire about travel and contact us for more details!
Q: Can we give you a shot list of photographs we want you to take?
We are open to capturing images specific to your ideas and request a
list ahead of time for the family portraits. The formals list should
include the names and roles of those involved as well as one “point
person” to help gather everyone, which is typically is the maid of honor
or best man. Byron and Wendy will work with you to create the list and
answer any questions you may have. As a starter, we have an online pre-wedding timeline itinerary & details and formals portraits forms to help this process be easy.
Q: How many pictures do we get; do we get to keep the negatives?
The number of images depends on many things – hours of coverage,
number of guests, type of event. Typically weddings average approximately 500 final images. We do provide the option for high-resolution digital files.
Byron Roe Photography retains the copyright to the images and the right
to use them for promotional purposes and competition. You will get a
written release that allows unlimited personal reproductions for friends
Q: What kind of equipment do you use?
We utilize the top of the line Nikon cameras, flashes and lens, with multiple backups.
Q: What kind of post-processing do you use?
We run light post-processing on all images to enhance color and exposure. Our post-processing uses a custom combination of Kubota Image Tools and Lightroom Presets to bring out the images and finalize our style. Digital liposuction (as some like to call it!) is not our specialty, we prefer to capture natural beauty using light and guided direction 🙂
Q: What is Pictage?
Pictage is our online proofing, payment and professional printing partner. They are fantastic and we have been very excited to partner with them and offer our clients a better, easier way to view their proofs and order pro-quality, color perfect prints.
Q: What is your payment schedule like?
In order to hold your wedding date, a signed contract and deposit must be received (non-refundable). The balance is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding date. If your wedding is canceled, the retainer fee is non-refundable. Once signed, we will turn down all other requests for that date.
Q: What if you get sick?
This is of course under extreme circumstances, however, we would supply you with coverage from contracted assistance. We are also a part of several organizations where we would find a replacement photographer.
Q: When should we book to secure our wedding date?
Frankly, ASAP. Since we cannot “hold dates” or pencil you in, dates are booked when signed contract and deposit are received. Wedding dates fill up typically the year before up to two months prior.
Q: Do we need to feed you at the reception?
It would be sure nice if you did! Typically there are ‘vendor’ meals that work great. We don’t need anything fancy and prefer to eat when you do (so as to continue coverage after eating).
Q: How do I get started?
We would enjoy the opporunity to learn more about you; so,the first step is to fill out our online wedding questionnaire or contact us directly to setup your one-on-one complementary consultation. This is a great opportunity to share your ideas, your wedding day plans and get to know each other a bit. From there, we’ll put together a proposal that best fits your needs.
