For equipment, I always carry at least two cameras and multiple lenses, plus extra memory cards and batteries. My second shooter will do the same, so if something happens, we will always have back-ups! If something catastrophic happens to me and I cannot shoot your wedding, my second shooter will be available to step up as primary and we will find another photographer as her assistant from our large network of photographers in Charlotte. But in my years of shooting, this has never happened to me!
I pride myself in being able to get clients their images as quickly as possible, while still maintaining the highest quality of editing and standards in the final product. I will always give you at least a few sneak peek images within 24 hours of your event, with the remaining gallery being delivered within 4-6 weeks (most of the time, it’s even sooner than that!).
While I do not put an exact amount of final images I guarantee to deliver, you can rest assured that every single moment that matters to you will be captured in your gallery! Usually, wedding galleries are between 800-1,300 images. I always include both color and black and white options for you!
I do not usually provide the RAW images, and here’s why: Typically, if an image is not included in your gallery, that means that it did not make the final cut for a reason! I filter out hundreds of images that are either duplicates, not flattering (maybe you closed your eyes in a shot!), weird lighting, the list goes on. I strive to deliver the absolute BEST selection of images for your final gallery, so that you don’t have to worry about any of your favorite images not making the cut.
I will provide you with an online link to a gallery of high-resolution images that is yours to access forever! You can share out with your friends and family, download single images, or download the full gallery. I would recommend saving the full gallery to your own personal hard drive as an extra back-up and for ease in accessing. I also save all of my photos to three different back-up locations to ensure they are preserved forever!
While I will always encourage you to share any Pinterest boards you’ve saved as inspiration, you do not need to send me a full shot list of images! Both myself and my second shooter are extremely confident that we will capture every single important moment of your day – both posed and candids! Please ask me to share some of my full wedding galleries with you so that you can get a sense of all of the shots we typically capture in a day!
