WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO I NEED 2 PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Hiring 2 photographers offers you the straight shots and candids. It also gives you more angles during the most important shots like the first kiss, first dance, cake cutting, and bouquet/garter toss for example. That also means more pictures! Remember, these moments only last a few seconds and it’s always best to be able to get a couple different angles. I would definitely recommend it!
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET FROM OUR WEDDING?
This is all determined on how many hours you hire me for, the location, decorations, the number of guests, and photoshoots that we schedule in on the wedding day. My goal is to not give you the most images but the most valuable quality images that will tell the story of your wedding day. For a typical 8 hour wedding, you can expect 500 or more high resolution images.
ARE THE IMAGES EDITED?
Each image will be personally edited through me for standard aspects such as crop, exposure, color and contrast. What makes me different from other photographers is that I will digitally go into most of the images and enhance and smooth out skin, touch up makeup, edit out background eye-sores and make sure the bride and groom are looking their best!
CAN I PRINT THE IMAGES?
With each package, I always give you a print release so that you can make unlimited prints. You are free to print them as much or as big as you want. I believe that these images are as much yours as they are mine so print away!
HOW SOON UNTIL I RECEIVE MY WEDDING IMAGES?
You will receive the edited images on an online gallery, no later than 8 weeks after your wedding date. Remember, post processing is extremely important in making sure each image is picture perfect. When they are finished, I will put them on your online gallery, that way you don’t have to wait for them through the mail. From there you can download all your images.
DO I HAVE TO USE IMAGES WITH YOUR LOGO ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
I believe that your wedding images are as much yours as they are mine. As a thank you, I don’t require you to only post images with my logo on them but instead request that you give me proper photo credit by tagging me or captioning : www.bobarikin.com
HOW DO WE PROCEED WITH A BOOKING?
I take a limited number of weddings a month so to reserve your spot with me, your date has to be secured first. The best thing to do is make sure your venue and I both have spots open and then you we can proceed with putting a $500 deposit down to reserve your wedding date with me. I would then meet you to sign contracts and go over specifics of the wedding day.
