HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
I am more of a creative moody photographer. My style would be known as, artistic, tasteful, moody, unique & emotional. I love capturing the mood of your special day. There is nothing like receiving your pictures and having them take you back to that very moment you’ve waited so long for. I certainly do pose when it comes time to take the formal shots and portraits – but throughout the day, I’m more of a fly on the wall taking photos as they happen without being too in-your-face.
HOW LONG IS YOUR PHOTO TURN AROUND TIME?
Standard turnaround time for delivery of your photos is 3-6 weeks after the event date – however, depending on the time of year it may be sooner.
DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Absolutely and I highly recommend an engagement session with your photographer before the big day!
It’s an opportunity to get used to being behind the camera with your partner as well as getting to know your photographer! Enagement shoot pictures are also used for invitations and save the dates!
WHAT ARE YOUR TERMS OF PAYMENT?
I require that you put a 20% initial non refundable deposit to secure the date and the rest is to be paid a week before the shoot/event. Post-processing of the images will begin only after the final payment is completed.
WILL MY PHOTOS APPEAR ON YOUR WEBSITE?
I only use a very small selection of photos that are relevant on our pages and on line profiles. If the images are used it is for self promotion. Your album would be posted on my website for future brides to see, however I will respect your wishes if you do not want your entire album posted.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
Don’t worry, I will still be by your side without any hesitation! I would still be sure to capture your big day even in rainy or snowy weather. You know what they say, if it rains on your wedding day, the knot is hard to untie so it is good luck!
ARE THERE ANY EXTRAS TO BE ADDED TO THE TOTAL PRICE?
There are always add ons and extras that you can add to your package but I do not add any other costs besides travel. I don’t charge anything extra for travel provided your wedding location is within a SO-mile radius of Thornhurst, Pennsylvania. Outside this area, I will discuss with you and supply a quote price for travel, and accommodation where necessary.
HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?
Let me know your date so I can check my availability. You could either go on my website (www.lucidmemoriesbydelycia.com) and request a booking date or you can shoot me over an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once we select the best package for you, I will send you a contract and booking form to sign and instructions on how to pay the retainer.
I can’t wait to work with you!
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WI LL BE AT MY WEDDING?
My Heirloom package includes a second photographer. You could even choose to add a third photographer if that’s what you would like! However, you can always add a second photographer to any package that you choose! I always recommend having a second photographer because they are always capturing the moments that aren’t always seen by everyone as well as covering different angles!
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH GROUP PICTURES?
Yes I offer group pictures. This is typically used for the closest friends or family of the bride and groom. However, I do not extend my services to backdrop photos during the reception! Photographers tend to stick around for backdrop pictures but they usually end up missing all the action on the dancefloor! I will request a group photo list before the wedding.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM PACKAGES?
Yes. I can customize anything to make sure the final package fits your needs perfectly. I have three premade wedding packages that you can look from and make your own!
I also offer an intimate wedding package that is perfect for a smaller wedding day with an abbreviated coverage.
HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RESERVE MY WEDDING DATE?
If you’re thinking of having your wedding on a Saturday, then earlier is better. Generally speaking, as soon as you’ve booked your venue, you should begin your search for a wedding photographer and put down a retainer as soon as you can!
