Wedding Photography FAQ - Chantelle Renee

FAQ: WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY


Do you require a deposit?

Yes, a retainer equal to 20% of your chosen wedding package is required to officially book your date.


Do we need to sign a contract?

Yes, I do have a contract that you will need to sign when you are ready to book. You are more than welcome to read over it at any time prior to signing.


Can I meet with you in person before booking?

Yes! I urge everyone I speak with to find a date on the calendar that would work out for the both of us to meet up. There's no obligation to pay any fees as it's completely complimentary. This is a time for us to kick back, get to know each other and for me to learn more about you!


Can I see a full gallery from a past wedding? 

Of course! If you're curious to see an entire completed wedding gallery just ask! I'm more than happy to share with you what I've delivered to my happy couples. 


Do we have to feed you?

Yes, please feed your photographer(s)! We are one of the only vendors who will actually be with you from start to finish on your day and that can be up to 12 hours on our feet. Don't worry, we eat fast and we eat when you eat!


How many images will we get?

The number of final images depends on the length of your wedding day and how many  photographers were shooting your event (1 or 2). Based on past weddings, you're looking at an average of 100 images per hour. So, if you have 8 hours of photo coverage, you can expect 800 to 900 final images.


How long does it take to get my wedding photos back?

My lead time for wedding photography is 6 to 9 weeks. The time of year, holidays, and busy season will all affect if you get to see your photos closer to the 6 week mark or 9 week mark.


Do you do destination weddings?

Absolutely! I love to travel. 


Do you travel internationally?

Yes! I have a passport ready to rock!

Should I choose to have a second photographer?

The ultimate and most important photography question; Should you get a photography package with 1 or 2 photographers? The wedding photography packages I offer come with both 1 photographer and 2 photographer options. (Check them out here!) Here's some advantages of having two photographers at your wedding:


Getting Ready:

Having two photographers for the full day allows a dedicated photographer to be assigned to the bride's room and the groom's room. This is especially important if the groom and bride are getting ready in two separate locations.        


The Ceremony:

If you're not doing a first look, it's great to have two photographers in order to be in two places at once! We want to be able to capture EVERYTHING and it's so important not to miss a special moment. 


Family Photos & Cocktail Hour:

 Having a cocktail hour after the ceremony? Let's have a second photographer covering that while we take family photos! 


The Reception & Grand Exit:

Let's face it, the wedding day is jam packed with moments that are only going to happen once and everything is going by in the blink of an eye. Two photographers at the reception helps everything go a whole lot smoother (especially if your guest list is 150+). Capturing the party from every angle while you focus on making memories and taking in the moment.
