CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
We don't do trendy here. Our images can probably best be described as "Classic Romantic." They're going to stand the test of time. No angst-ridden rusty-brown images, and no overly bright pics with no highlight details that will look outdated in about 15 minutes. Kevin has shot close to 600 weddings, and has meticulously developed his own personal shooting and editing style. Make sure you take a look at our FULL WEDDINGS section to get a great idea of what to expect.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A PHOTOGRAPHER?
It is to your advantage to book a photographer as early as possible in the planning process. It goes without saying that "wedding season" dates (March through October) are the most popular and may need to be booked well over a year in advance. We used to suggest six to nine months in advance, but we're now suggesting nine to twelve months.
HAVE YOU SHOT A WEDDING AT OUR EVENT LOCATION BEFORE?
There are very few locations in the Memphis area that we haven't shot. Ask us to see examples from your location. We're happy to provide them.
HAVE YOU SHOT ( JEWISH / PERSIAN / INDIAN / CHRISTIAN / LGBT / SECULAR ) WEDDINGS?
Yes to all of those, and about 100 different other types you haven't even thought of. There's very little that Kevin hasn't seen or shot at a wedding. If you would like examples of a specific type of event, please ask. We likely have a full wedding we can show you with the style of your choice.
CAN YOU SHOW ME EXAMPLES OF ENTIRE WEDDINGS?
We certainly can. Check out our FULL WEDDINGS section to see all of our current wedding galleries. They aren't password protected, so you can get a great feeling for exactly what to expect from our coverage. PRO TIP: If another photographer you are considering won't show you all of their galleries, it means they're hiding something. Every photographer can show a few great images from a wedding day, or the single best wedding they ever shot. We prefer to show them all.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS DO YOU BRING TO A WEDDING?
All of our Saturday wedding packages include two photographers. We do offer the option of lesser coverage for non-Saturday weddings. Ask, and we'll be happy to give you a personalized price quote.
WILL KEVIN BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER SHOOTING MY WEDDING?
Kevin will be the primary photographer at every wedding we book. We never double book days.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
We can cover your wedding just about anywhere on the planet. We usually shoot a couple of destination weddings every year. We don't charge a premium for these weddings, but we do ask that you cover our reasonable travel expenses. Ask us for a travel estimate.
WILL YOUR TEAM STAY UNTIL THE END OF MY WEDDING?
Our non-elopement packages don't have pre-set time limits. We'll certainly stay until Elvis has left the building (or at least the bride & groom).
CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PACKAGES AND PRICING?
We have wedding day packages starting at $2699. If you would like to see our Wedding Pricing Guide, visit our CONTACT page, and give us a shout.
DO YOU OFFER A PAYMENT PLAN?
Indeed we do! Our payment plan is super simple. We take your order total and divide it by the number of months between now and your event date, and then bill your credit card for that portion each month. There is no interest, there are no fees, and you don't even have to remember to send in your payments. It's the easy way to make award-winning photography affordable.
(Some conditions apply. Please ask for further details.)
WILL WE BE ABLE TO PRINT THE IMAGES FROM OUR WEDDING?
All of our wedding packages include full-resolution digital files from the wedding, including a copyright license that allows you to make an unlimited number of prints for yourself, or to give as gifts to others. We also provide smaller copies of the files that are perfectly sized for sharing on social media. PRO TIP: If another photographer wants to charge you extra for the wedding files, or a "print release," they're trying to pad their package prices.
I READ ON A WEB SITE THAT I SHOULD ASK FOR "RAW" FILES. CAN WE GET THOSE?
Raw files are the GIANT files that come directly out of our cameras. They contain massive amounts of data that allow for considerable tweaking of the images before they are exported as a viewable image for our clients. In all likelihood, you wouldn't be able to view the images without purchasing special software, and even then, the images would be dark, lacking in contrast, and generally ugly. All of the images we deliver to our clients get meticulously edited for exposure, color, and style. It's the difference between eating perfectly prepared food in a 5-star restaurant, or having it served raw on a paper plate. You would never want raw food, and we would never serve it to you.
We deliver all of our images as high-resolution JPEG files. If you are interested in receiving uncompressed versions of edited files as part of your package, we will be happy to accommodate you for an additional charge.
SHOULD WE PURCHASE WEDDING INSURANCE?
YES! We can't stress this enough. From the Knot.com, "A basic insurance policy that covers loss of photos, videos, attire, presents, rings and deposits usually costs anywhere between $155 and $550, depending on the amount of coverage you want. General liability insurance, which covers up to $1,000,000 for accidents, costs around $185."
