Are we a good fit for each other?
You may notice I, Tina, don’t post a lot of details, posed shots, or group photos. I still take all of these and know they are super important. However, I give a lot of my focus to moments of connection between people. During the ceremony, I turn around to see if your family members are holding hands, if your wedding party has wrinkled chins from keeping back happy tears and if kids are falling asleep in their parent’s laps. During the toasts, I’m photographing the person nervously giving the toast, your sweet glances at each other, and your family’s reactions as they slap their knees and double over in laughter. I know the formal stuff is important, but I also fully believe you will cherish photos of yourselves and your loved ones just being in the moment and celebrating the day with you. If you feel the same way, I’d love to work with you.
Should we do an engagement session?
I say an enthusiastic yes. Not only will it allow you to get some epic shots in locations that are harder to get to on your wedding day, but it gives you tons of practice in front of the camera. When your wedding day comes around, you’ll be a seasoned pro and be way less nervous about having a camera around you.
Do we have to hire both of you?
We love working together, but it is absolutely not required. We have packages with photo and video, as well as separate offerings. We do give a discount for couples who book both of us.
How soon should we book you?
As soon as you’ve landed on your date and have secured your venue, it’s a good idea to inquire about availability. We book out up to a year and a half out and have booked as late as the night before (although we don’t recommend waiting that long).
Can we post our photos to Facebook/Instagram? What about printing them?
Yes please! Written into your contract is personal usage rights. This means you can post away and print them wherever you like (there is also the option to order through my professional print shop once you received your gallery, but it’s by no means required).
Do you have backup gear? Liability Insurance?
Yes and Yes.
How can we get you to document our wedding?
You can connect with us here or just send an e-mail to tina@loveridgephotography. We like to meet in person or skype with you before you book just so you can make sure we’re a good fit. After all, we’ll be spending most of your wedding day with you. Then we require a 25% non-refundable deposit to hold your date and a signed contract. Bookings are first-come-first-serve and we cannot reserve your date without a deposit/contract.
