Do you include the high resolution files?
How long do you need to shoot our photos on the wedding day?
We need to chat about this. When deciding on the best times for ceremony and reception, most brides do not take into consideration the time that the photographer needs to take your wedding pictures between the end of the ceremony and beginning of the reception. Your day and your wedding photography will be much more relaxed and memorable if you space things out and allow yourself to enjoy every aspect of the day, including your unrushed photo shoot.
How do we arrange for a consultation with you to view your work in person and to discuss our specific wedding needs, and what is covered during a consultation?
Please inquire online for available times and we will make arrangements for a meeting with us. Various time slots are available for such consultations. Early evening hours (generally, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) are popular for many of our clients.
Our advice to couples concerning choice of a wedding photographer usually involves answering these three questions:
• Do you like the photographer’s work?
• Do the photographer’s prices fit within your budget?
• Are you pleased with the photographer’s style and personality? (That is, do you feel that your personality and the photographer’s will blend well on your wedding day?)
If you can answer “yes” to all three of these questions, you are well on your way to making a decision. If the answer is “no” to one or more of these questions, you might want to shop around a bit more before making your final decision.
How do we book Darren for a shoot?
We require a non-refundable deposit/retainer and a signed contract to book our wedding services. Once the deposit has been received and details of the chosen wedding package have been finalized on the agreement sheet, your booking with us is finalized.
How many photographers and assistants do you use at weddings?
Darren Hull is the primary photographer and assistants and second shooters are selected based on need.
What shooting style do you use for weddings?
I use a combination shooting style, mixing a candid photo approach (occasionally referred to as a photojournalistic style) with the more traditional posed formal photographs. Much of the style that I use is determined by the agreement that we reach with the bride and groom concerning the type of shots that they want us to use to tell the story of their wedding. I generally adjust my shooting style to some degree based on what the bride and groom want from us, and we are usually able to determine what the bride and groom want in our pre-wedding consultations or conversations.
Do you allow other people to take photographs while you are working?
For the most part, there is no problem with friends and relatives taking photographs while we are doing our work. All that we ask is that any friends or relatives respect the fact that we have been hired to do a job as quickly and efficiently as possible, and that it is especially important that we have minimal interference during the creative couple portraits.
