Can I see a full wedding/session from start to finish?
Of course! All you have to do is ask!
Can my wedding hours be split up?
While there may be times of the day that are slower, I'm there in your service regardless. Putting an hour or two between sets isn't time that I'm able to use for anything personal outside of being "in wait" for shooting the rest of your wedding, and as such the hours are continuous.
What is the SMP Wedding Support Group?
One of the things I pride myself on with my couples is creating a connection with them, and the support group is a way for me to get more connected with my couples and also my couples to get connected with each other! Once you decide to book me, you will be added to the private support group that has ALL of my brides in there! I post tips and ideas on what’s best for photos, recommendations of other vendors and even talk more about my own experience being a bride. It’s an amazing little community and support group, weddings are stressful and it’s nice to have a group helping you along the way.
Do you deliver every image you shoot?
I do not. I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions, and other images that do not fit my standards. For example, because I shoot with low apertures, sometimes I take a few extra shots to make sure I have the perfect focus. I don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so I spend hours doing that on my end.
Do you touch up all of your images?
Yes. Every image delivered is post produced with my unique style. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, black and white processing, and other corrections.
What should we wear for our session?
Here's a few ideas I've come up with, always wear something without any words or advertising. I LOVE pops of color with accessories!
When can we expect to see our photos?
Sessions are delivered within two to four weeks, and weddings within six to eight weeks. If you need your images sooner, there is a rush-processing fee.
How many images do we receive from our wedding?
I don't give an exact number for either sessions or weddings, as it depends on many factors, including whether or not there is an associate photographer with me.
Do you do vow renewals, elopements and anniversaries?
Yes I do! Contact me for a price quote that fits your needs!
What rights do I have to the digital prints?
You have the right to reprint images, however you may not sell your images for a profit or publish your images without the written consent of Sydney Marie Photography.
Do you have Liability Insurance?
Yes. Many venues require photographers to have Liability Insurance. So before hiring Uncle Joe, make sure he’s covered.
Do you offer payment plans?
Of course! I work with you to come up with the best payment plan that works for you.
Are there travel fees associated with my session/wedding?
For all sessions, thirty minutes of travel each way is included with your session fee. For distances beyond this I charge $0.50 per mile each way. Weddings in Michigan have no travel fee.
I love you're work and want to book now! How do I reserve you for my wedding date?
All wedding dates are reserved once I receive your signed contract and pay the reservation fee.
