Wedding Photography FAQs

Below are some of the most frequent questions that our couples ask. As full-service wedding photographers, we are pleased to provide wedding photography service that includes both digital files with our most popular packages and also access to professional-quality albums and prints.

Our Approach to wedding photography

What does full-service wedding photography mean exactly?

We are a full-service photographer, which means that we offer complete coordination of albums and portrait prints from our professional suppliers—so that you receive tangible keepsakes and don’t have to worry about a thing after the wedding. And with our professional suppliers, you can trust that your keepsakes will be gorgeous. As full-service photographers, we are passionate about creating wedding artwork and put a lot of time and care into crafting and editing images that will be showcased and enjoyed including your wedding day album and prints. We think a special day like your wedding shouldn’t be hidden away on a hard drive or in a folder on your computer and deserves to be shown off.

What areas do you service?

Our wedding photography team happily services all of Southwestern Ontario and the GTA, including but not limited to Brantford, Burlington, Cambridge, Hamilton, Ingersoll, Kitchener, Mississauga, Stratford, Strathroy, St Thomas, and Woodstock. All travel is included for wedding locations that are within 200km outside of London, Ontario. We are always happy to travel for a love story and charge a small, reasonable travel fee for destination weddings, out-of-province weddings, and weddings in Northern Ontario including Parry Sound and Sudbury. Contact us with your wedding day details!

What is your process for editing our photos?

Our goal is to edit your images to match as close to how it was on your day. This includes colour-correction of your photographs so that they look natural, your skin tones look great, and the colours sing. If you happen to have a pimple, don’t worry, we can edit that too. We try to avoid “fad” edits and presets that lay on thick vintage, faded, or vignette masks (they tend to date photos). We also put a lot of care into our fine art Signature edits for printed wedding day portraits.

Preparing for your big day

Enjoy an Engagement session on us!

All of our couples receive a complimentary engagement photography session. Engagement photoshoots are a perfect way to celebrate your upcoming wedding, and also to get good at ignoring our cameras in preparation for your wedding day. The best part of engagement photography is that you get to pause amidst the wedding planning, have some fun, and let us capture what will be some of your most treasured photos from this season of life before the wedding day.

What type of weddings fuel you?

We love weddings that are filled to the brim with love, family, friends, real emotion and authentic connection. We also love getting our breath taken away with unique or stunning locations or weddings with a completely beautiful theme…Sweeping landscapes, old-school architecture, stunning gala halls, weddings in the woods or in a beautiful chapel or a rustic barn. These places always inspire us! If you have a special location or theme for your wedding day, let us know, we’d love to create something that’s never been done before.

Will you help me with my wedding day schedule?

Yes! We are available to help you create a schedule that makes space for all the things that matter to you, including bride and groom preparations, the first look (if you chose), family portraits, and those beautiful bridal portraits (our favourite), ending with your party after the wedding or dance under the stars.

On your wedding day

What gear do you shoot with?

We shoot with quality Canon equipment. We also love to play with light, and do both natural light and flash photography so that both your day-time, romantic golden hour, and evening shots and wedding exits are perfectly lit.

How much direction will you provide on my wedding day?

We may provide some direction to help with posing so that you can get stunning shots you will love. But most of all, we like it if you can forget we are there at all – because after all, it’s was always about the two of you.

After the wedding

Your Wedding Day album

The best way to enjoy your wedding memories is to have them displayed in your home, which is why we are proud to provide a beautiful heirloom album in our top two collections. Using the finest Italian leather at sizes as large as 20×8 inches and available in 10 colours, our professional albums are designed by a graphic designer and built to last so that you receive a quality keepsake you will love to have and hold—and be proud to share with your friends and family.

How soon will I be able to view my wedding day photos?

We like to make the reveal of your wedding day photos a special event. That’s why we schedule a private Reveal Session to be held about 2 weeks after the wedding, where you get to see your wedding moments from start to finish for the first time. At this time, you will have the opportunity to choose your favourites for your wedding album. If you choose, you can also purchase prints at our latest vendor special pricing. Most clients compliment their wedding album by printing wall art of 2-3 of their favourite images, and also order some gift prints for family members too.

Why do prints still matter?

When we capture and craft your images, we have generations in mind that will one day discover your wedding images in frames and beautifully weathered albums. We are proud to provide tangible quality products for your home and family. We guarantee that your engagement and wedding day prints will be some of the most cherished artwork in your home. As the years pass, digital file formats as we know them today will inevitably change as technology advances, making old image files unreadable. A USB will one day be extinct along with floppy drives. Having prints in your home is an enduring way to cherish your connection, history, and add warmth to your space so you are surrounded with what, and who, matters most.

Can I print my photos myself?

Our top two packages include a USB with digital negatives (colour corrected files of your wedding day images) that are at a resolution of approximately 8×10″. Your USB of images includes a print release so that your images can be freely shared online and printed up to an 8×10″ dimension. This means that you can print your files anywhere you want. Bear in mind that if printed externally (e.g. at Walmart or Costco), there is no way to guarantee that the colours of your photos will print correctly as your images are edited to match the print settings of the professional labs that we use for printing.

How do I order print through you?

Our print pricing is very simple, with the option to purchase from the a la carte menu or a print collection which gives you the best value. Prices vary depending based on size, with our gift prints starting at $50 and 12×18 wall portraits starting at $195. When you print through us, we print through professional labs and guarantee the colours and quality of your printed image at any dimension. We also include additional advanced editing of each purchased print, a matching high resolution image for each print larger than an 8×10, and options to print an image in just about any size and on a variety of mediums including canvas, acrylic, and metals.

Can I get an online gallery of all of my images?

Yes. Each of our wedding collections include a complimentary 30-day private and password-protected online gallery so that you and your loved ones can easily view you images with the option to order the images you love.

What are digital negatives?

Digital negatives are colour corrected 8×10″ resolution JPEG images that are provided on a USB. Digital negatives of your wedding day images are included in our top two wedding collections, include a print release, and can be shared with family and friends.

Can I get digital files of my wedding day photography on a USB?

Yes. We include colour corrected JPEG images (digital negatives) on a USB in our top two packages. If you prefer our bottom collection, you can purchase this USB a la carte or choose to upgrade to the next package up. Your digital images are great to have as a back up. After all, memories this special should really not live on your hard drive or just stay on a USB in your desk drawer. We like to include these files still, because we know they are nice to have.

Are digital files included in my engagement/anniversary/family photoshoot?

All of our engagement, anniversary, and family photo sessions include time, talent, and a complimentary Facebook Posting (online posting) of images that can be shared digitally. A Reveal Session is held about 2 weeks after your session to provide you with the opportunity to enjoy all of your session images for the first time. At this time you have the option to purchase your favourite print(s) through our a la carte menu or print collections which offer discounted pricing.

How do I share my images with family and friends

We make it easy for couples to share web quality images with friends and family near and far because we know you will want to share your best day with the people you love.

We include 3 ways to share your images:

  1. Facebook Posting highlights from your wedding day can be easily shared online with everyone in your world
  2. Your Online Gallery link can be shared with friends and family and allows your images to be viewed or ordered as prints
  3. Digital negatives on a USB (included in our top two packages) can be shared on social media or through an online photo service of your choice
