🧐IMPORTANT QUESTIONS 🧐
It's a lotta info, but you're so worth it!
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Wonderly Creative is based out of Chattanooga, TN, but is willing and available to travel to you! Take me anywhere! Travel fees may apply.
HOW DO WE BOOK?
Start with a wedding inquiry under the "Book Me" tab. Once I receive your inquiry and you've decided what kind of package you want, I will email you a contract and a customized invoice through my online booking system. A $500 Retainer Fee deposit, which can be paid online with a debit or credit card, & a signed contract is due to reserve your date. Easy peasy! Dates will not be booked until both of these items are received. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding OR we can set up a payment plan if you'd like!
CAN I ADD MORE ITEMS TO MY PACKAGE AFTER I'VE BOOKED?
Of course! I understand it may take some time to decide on exactly what you're wanting in your package--add on items like video, albums, a second shooter, or extra coverage, etc. I say it's better to go ahead and get your date locked in, and decide on upgrading as you go!
DO WE GET ALL THE PHOTOS?
The answer is mostly YES! The photos that won't be included are those mid-blink, blurry, or unflattering images you're not going to want to go through. For a single wedding, I can deliver anywhere from 600-1000+ images! It just depends on how long your coverage is and how much happens on your wedding day.
SHOULD WE HIRE A SECOND SHOOTER? (because there's only one of me)
Adding a second shooter adds another perspective to the day, as well as eases the stress of situations that call for me to be in two places at once. For example:
Getting Ready: I really just can't be in two places at once. If the groomsmen are getting ready at the same time as the bridesmaids, it's helpful to have another person there to capture both moments.
Ceremony: During the ceremony, I really want to be honed in on your vows and all the special things you've planned for your ceremony. A second photographer is there to capture the groom's reaction as the bride is walking down the aisle, reactions from parents and guests, and little details that may not get captured on camera while I'm trying to capture the big picture moments. The second photographer can also start photographing cocktail hour while I'm getting family portraits after the ceremony.
Candid Moments: During bridal portraits, bridal party portraits, and family portraits, there will be endless amounts of candid moments the second photographer will be able to catch while I'm occupied with scheduled portraits.
Adding a second photographer can really maximize your photo coverage for your wedding day. I would highly recommend adding one if your wedding will have 40 guests or more. If you're planning to have less than 40 guests, I would recommend sticking with 1 photographer.
CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US?!
While I will go through on my editing software and do minor touch ups to a few select images, because the volume of a wedding is so big, it's not very realistic or efficient for me to put each image into photoshop (remember, I'm delivering anywhere between 600-1000+!). With that said, I don’t really believe in photoshopping you. I think you’re amazing exactly as you are, and the last thing I want to do is change the way you look in an editing software. I will be honest, if you’re looking for a photographer that will touch up every single image of you and make you look airbrushed, I’m not ya girl. I will however do everything I can to make sure the image is right in camera, and make sure you're looking your best. You can trust me, I got you!
DO YOU OFFER VIDEO?
I currently no longer offer wedding videos :( But I have some amazing videography hookups at different budget ranges that I love working with. Ask me about video recommendations and your budget range, and I’ll send my best people to you!
DO YOU HAVE ANY REVIEWS?
Absolutely! The pride of Wonderly Creative is having customers who feel comfortable with me, and because I help put them at ease, I help them feel confident and excited about their photos! Check out my reviews on my Facebook Page!
CAN I PRINT THE PHOTOS MYSELF? PRINTING RIGHTS... DO WE GET THEM?!?!!
100% yes! When you purchase a photo package from me, you purchase exclusive rights to print and share your photos online as you please. You are able to print directly through your online gallery, or wherever!
With that said, I do like to warn my couples that not every printer is the same, and you should be choosy about where you print your images. Printing your photos is the BEST way to view them. I spend hours pouring through your photos, color correcting, toning, and touching up, and unfortunately when printed incorrectly, it can reverse all of that hard work, and you're not able to see the images as they were intended. Because of this, I recommend that you order your prints straight through me to ensure the best outcome! You can order them directly through your online gallery and you can order prints at any time, in any size, on any paper, and they all come with a satisfaction guarantee or your money back!
DO WE GET THE RAW FILES?
When you invest in photography from me, you're trusting me to capture your moments and send you the right images that are beautifully processed. RAW (unedited) images will not be sent to you.
CAN WE POST OUR PHOTOS ONLINE?
YASSSS, I encourage you to! You're welcome to post your photos anywhere online for personal use. I just ask that when you're posting that you would please credit me in your posts by tagging @wonderlycreative on Instagram and "Wonderly Creative" on Facebook. This helps my business so much, and is so appreciated from you!
DO YOU BACK UP YOUR IMAGES?
Yes, I have a very strategic 3 fold process when it comes to handling and backing up your precious data, and do everything I can to make sure it is all stored and backed up safely. Your contract states that I agree to keep your data for up to 1 year after your wedding, so it is advised that you also take measures to back up and store your final wedding images yourself. I would recommend uploading your full wedding gallery onto a cloud based storage system for safety like Google Drive or Dropbox.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, I am!
CAN WE SEE A FULL GALLERY?
For sure!! Go ahead and get your inquiry started and let me know you want to see some full wedding galleries, I’ll hook you up!
