THE PHOTOGRAPHER
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I’ve been shooting weddings regularly since 2005.

How many weddings a year do you shoot?
I shoot between 25-30 weddings per year.

BOOKING
Should we meet in person before booking?
Whenever possible, I definitely suggest sitting down in person to ask any questions you might have, and get an overall feel for the way Simple Color works. It’s not a must, but you’ll spend more time on your wedding day with your photographer than almost anyone else, so you want to make sure I’m not crazy!

What does it take to reserve our date?
To book Simple Color for your wedding date, I ask for a $500 deposit and a signed copy of my service contract.

What type of payments do you accept?
I currently accept cash, check, and money order, as well as Visa and Mastercard.

ALBUMS
What types of albums do you offer?
I offer a full range of flushmount albums through Forbeyon Albums. Every part of the album is customizable, from the inside layout, to the cover material and embossing.

How does the album design process work?
My couples have complete control over the final design of their albums. They select the images … and I provide as many design drafts as necessary until they’re completely satis ed with the final design.

Do I get to choose my own cover?
Yes. All the album covers, image cameos, and embossing options are included in the price of the album. The only extra costs are for changes in album sizes and page numbers.

How many images should be in my album?
I suggest around 90 images for my 30-page albums. This allows for plenty of large images, and an overall sense of clean design in the final book.

Can I add extra pages?
Yes. Extra pages must be purchased in spreads of two. Extra 10×10 and 12×12 spreads are $50. Extra 8×8 spreads are $25. Extra spreads hold between 6-7 images.

USB DRIVE
How does the proof USB drive work?
The USB drive of proofed images supplied to my couples includes the fully edited and full size image proofs that we use for printing in-house. Our clients have the rights to re-print, e-mail, and copy the images as desired.

Do I own the copyright to the images
No. Simple Color retains creative and usage rights to all its images. Clients are restricted from re-editing and re-selling their images.

ENGAGEMENTS

Should we add an engagement session?
Whenever possible, I definitely encourage it. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other. They allow my couples to spend some time in front of the camera and shake o any jitters … while also allowing me to learn what works well for them.

How do we decide on a location?
I love it when our couples have a special location or locations in mind for their sessions. Especially when it has special meaning to them as a couple. However, I can definitely suggest some great locations if needed.

What should we wear?
It always helps to have a couple of different outfits for the session. This provides clients with some variety in their images. I suggest avoiding matching colors and busy patterns, and it always helps when you can where clothes you feel comfortable in.

TIME FRAMES
How long do wedding proofs take?
Wedding proofs are online and ready to view within 4-6 weeks of your wedding date.

How long do session proofs take?
All other session proofs are online and ready to view within 2-3 weeks of the session date.

How long do albums take?
Once the design and cover have been approved by my couples, albums take 2-4 weeks to print, bind and ship to me in Birmingham.

How long do prints take delivered?
Print orders are mailed directly to clients, and are usually delivered within 4-5 business days of ordering. Prints ordered Fri-Sun will not be processed until the following Monday.

SHOOTING
What is the best time of day for shooting?
The best time for photographing any subject is going to be during the first two hours of light after sunrise, or the last two hours of light before sunset. The higher the sun is in the sky, the worse the light will be for pictures.

How involved are you in the planning process for wedding day schedules?
As involved as you’ll let me be. While I never want pictures to dictate a wedding day, I do think it’s wise to have a sound schedule set up to optimize daylight, backgrounds, and your wedding venue. I’m happy to answer questions about your wedding day schedule.

Can you work in a dark church/venue?
My equipment allows me to work in extremely dark conditions, but the less light I have to work with, the grainer the final images will be. If you want good quality images of your ceremony, I highly recommend avoiding candlelight-only or other dimly lit ceremony lighting.

How much direction do you provide?
I prefer to let the wedding day unfold as naturally as possible. I’ll definitely step in and direct as necessary during portrait time, and I’m happy to make suggestions during the rest of the day. But I always avoid stopping, recreating, or posing a “moment”. Wedding days shouldn’t follow a script, but rather, be full of real moments of happiness and joy.

TECHNICAL
What type of cameras do you use?
I shoot with the latest in Nikon digital SLR camera equipment.

Do you use flash?
Only when I have to. If you’ve looked around the Simple Color web site at all, you’ll notice that my specialty is utilizing natural light. But when the situation calls for it, I’m ready to shoot with flash, and can use it effectively in any situation.

How do you edit your images?
I hand edit all of my proofs using Adobe Photoshop. All proofs delivered online and on the proof USB are fully edited for color, sharpness, and creative cropping. I also deliver about 25% of my proofs in black and white. While I touch up every image and make sure they look perfect for our clients, I do not currently offer cosmetic edits as part of our services.
