honest answers to questions we get from our brides and grooms
We hope this page will help answer the questions you have as you are planning your wedding day. If you still have further questions, by all means... please ask us. Our aim is to always be as honest and transparent with our clients as we can.
why should we choose you to be our photographers?
The short answer? We care! We care about your love story and approach your wedding day as how we'd want our very own wedding to be captured. This is a once in a lifetime moment deserving to be documented beautifully. Our aim is to capture your special day with timeless and romantic imagery. We want you to love your photos ten years from now as much as you'll love them one month after your wedding day.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
Over the years, we've fine tuned our artistic vision to a style that can be summed up in three words: timeless, elegant and romantic. How in the world will we be able to capture you in this way, when you get nervous and awkward in front of cameras? Don't worry, you aren't alone with this concern. Many brides and grooms have relayed this to us.
Our approach in documenting your love story is aimed directly at making you feel at ease and comfortable throughout the whole process. When you look through our portfolio, you will see REAL everyday brides who had the same concerns, but ended up loving their experience and thankful for our guidance through the whole process.
We’re both carefree and easy going. Our style is romantic, editorial and timeless. Every bridal party has a different personality, if we are able to be hands-off, we will. But we aren’t afraid to direct you if we feel it will transform a good photo to a great one.
How would you describe your personalities?
Our two most popular Wedding Collections A & B include the full resolution files without watermark for download. With those Collections, we provide a Print Release so you can print them anywhere you’d like. If you want them done right, we also provide high quality prints from our professional labs. This ensures they look their best, the way we intend them. With all our Wedding Collections, professional prints can be easily ordered through your online gallery by you and your guests. For Wedding Collections C and Intimate Ceremonies, downloadable full resolution files are an optional purchase.
Do you include Digital Files and Print Release?
We’ve priced ourselves according to what we need to live, survive, and provide for ourselves and our family. In addition to our personal expenses, we also have business expenses. As much as we love what we do, it’s our full-time job and how we make a living. We simply can’t afford to give discounts. But if you really love our style, just let us know. We will do our best to add value where we can for those who have a budget and really want us as their photographer. We’re more than happy to go above and beyond for those who truly want to be a PrettyGeeky Bride & Groom.
We’re on a budget, do you give discounts?
When will we receive our photos and albums?
To keep costs lower for our brides, we process all the photos ourselves. Because of this, you’ll receive your wedding photos within 1-3 months after your wedding day (depending on our workload). If you’d like your photos much sooner, we can provide a 3-week rush-delivery option for an additional fee. When you receive your gallery is also the time we begin the process of building your album. Upon your final approval of your wedding album design, most albums are ready for delivery within 2-3 weeks. The hand-crafted Heirloom Leather Albums require a little more build time and are delivered within 4-5 weeks.
How many photos do you deliver?
There is no limit to the amount of images that you’ll receive. We aim to photograph every detail of your wedding in an editorial style. Because every wedding is different, the amount of photos delivered will vary. On average, you can expect around 400-600 for a typical 8 hour wedding. For Engagement and Bridal sessions it’s in the 50-100 range.
Do you have travel fees?
There are no travel fees for weddings within 1-hour of the Portland area. Travel fees for weddings outside Portland,OR will vary. If required, travel fees are non-refundable and due 3 months in advance of your wedding.
