What does the price include?
We don't just show up and shoot your wedding and that's done. The price you pay includes our time spent planning, meeting to make sure all issues are figured out as much as possible before we actually shoot. The time spent on editing to make sure you only get the good product and nothing less. So, eight hours of shooting time meant quadruple the time to get the project complete before we hand them to you.
We charge $1.10 per mile outside the 50 miles radius from the Los Angeles metro area.
How soon do we deliver the photos and video?
Normally, the photos are delivered within two weeks on dedicated server. The photos are downloadable in various resolutions. Clients and their friends and family can also order prints directly from the site, unless it's a special size and material. Please ask if you have a special request in size and materials cause chances are we do offer them at a premium price with premium quaility materials, the best the industry can offer.
The video takes approximately at least 60 days after the wedding day. The reason for the time is that we have to go through all the footages shot and plan out how to put together in the way we think the story would be best told. The way we apporach how the video is made is like a mini movie where there are a lot of components involved and it takes a long time to put everything together in a way that turely represent the spirit of the day.
Do we offer payment plans?
We offer payment plans but the general proactice is a 50% non-refundable deposit at booking and balance due that the day of the wedding. There are only 52 weekends per year and as much as we love to shoot, we can only do one wedding at a time. So, in order for us to make sure that you are serious and definite, so we can turn down other potential income for us, we have to make sure that you are committed to us cause we are to you.
One photographer VS. two
Normally depends on the size of your guests. We highly recommend two photographers if your guests list is over 200, so we can cover everyone and make sure nothing is left out for lack of coverage.
