Frequently Asked Questions
How do we book you?
Upon filling out the contact form, I will reach out and set up a time to meet in person or over FaceTime to chat about your wedding! From there we will discuss your needs for the day and customize your package. Once we determine every thing you will need, we can move forward and sign the contract. Upon signing a non-refundable retainer will be due to reserve your date. The final balance will be due 1 month prior to the date of the event. Then you're all set!
Do you use a second shooter?
Two of my most popular packages come with a second shooter! If the package you have selected does not there is always the option to add one on to your investment.
Do you travel?
Yes, A thousand times yes! (Name that movie!) I have a heart that longs for travel and to accommodate that I currently offer special pricing on destination weddings! This will only be available for a limited time, so jump on this train if you are outside of my state/country!
Unfortunately, I do not offer all the photos that will have been taken throughout the day. I provide the best of the best and always give it to you if I have it! If there are any extra I can guarantee it was a blink, change in settings, a repeat image or something I wouldn't deem flattering (such as an open mouth for eating!). I will include all the funnies though!
Can I have all the photos?
Can I have the copyright?
As I would be the person who created the artwork, it is legally protected as my image. You WILL however obtain printing rights which give you the ability to print at whichever lab you choose. You shouldn't need the copyright! This does not however give you permission to sell or publish the photos without my written consent. You may purchase the copyrights if desired. Pricing for that begins at $1,000 per image.
The way I edit is very minimal. To give the image it's true likeness. I work hard to make sure that you love the way you look in my photographs! I do color/exposure corrections and some minor patching up if need be. Any extensive photoshop editing that you request will be $10 per photo.
Can you fix this in Photoshop?
I love helping my clients find the right outfit for their session! It's important that you feel confident in what you are wearing so that it shows! I encourage soft, neutral tones with pops of color! I would avoid: neons, plaid, flashy prints, and shiny materials for best results. Feel free to send me photos of your ideas! I absolutely love helping!
What should I wear for my session?
Yes! El & Em Photography is a registered Corporation with the state of Florida and insured through PPA.
