What is the best way to contact you?
If you are inquiring for a shoot fill out the Contact form on the book me! page. But if you would like to talk to me ahead of time feel free to email me Haleydouglasphotography@gmail.com and I will respond within the day. Or shoot me a text (916) 996-6912 at any time and as long as I’m not sleeping I will respond. I’m not a huge phone call person but if you have an emergency, leave a voicemail and I will call back ASAP.
How do we book you for our wedding?
Okay, this one is easy! First set aside some time to thoroughly fill out the contact form. As soon as I receive that I will send back a contract for you to go over and sign. Last but certainly not least you pay the deposit fee. Then I’m officially all yours!
How does payment work?
I know you are juggling a million different things right now in preparation for your big day, so let’s keep it simple! The wedding deposit is $500 (non refundable) due at signing and the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding date. The session deposit is $100 (non refundable) due at signing and the remaining balance is due 1 week prior to the session date.
How many images will we get?
I don’t put a set number on how many you will receive but I never leave anything out! For weddings I deliver at least 400 images. And for sessions I deliver a minimum of 50. Every shoot is different and the numbers are always changing. But if you’d like to see some full galleries, please feel free to ask! I’d love to send over a few so you can get an idea of what I deliver.
When will we get our photos?
You will be able to blow up your Insta feed with wedding photos within 1 month of your wedding day! And sessions will be delivered within 2 weeks.
How will we get our photos?
I will deliver all of your photos through a high resolution online gallery that you can share with your friends and family. You have the rights to all images to print, post, make wallpaper out of, whatever your heart desires!
Do you give RAWs?
No, I do not! Editing is half the magic that goes into an image. Without that crucial second step the photos would not be finished.
Can you Photoshop us to look skinnier?
I am not a personal trainer and I do not change your appearance. I want to focus on making you feel beautiful, rather than looking unrealistic. So no, I don’t Photoshop your bodies to look any different than they actually are. but I do clear up skin and remove distractions.
How much time should we set aside for wedding day photos?
I require at minimum 1 hour of time scheduled for wedding day pictures. But I highly recommend 45 minutes designated to newly wed photos and 30 minutes for the family and bridal party shots.
Can we give you a list of photos we would like taken?
Yes! I request that everyone put together a Pinterest album of photos they like, as well as a shoot list so that I can get a better idea of what you’re looking for. I don’t promise to get every single photo on the list but I give it my best shot!
Do we need to feed you at the reception?
Yes, it is in my contract that both my second shooter and I are fed the same meal as the guests.
Do you do destination weddings?
Heck yes I do! Take me anywhere and everywhere. I do destination weddings and destination sessions. So if you can dream it, we can do it!
How would you describe your style?
My style is capturing your real 100% raw moments. I focus on telling your unique love story through my work. I edit my images in moody chocolatey brown tones with a hint of zesty orange to top it all off. That is my perfect editing cocktail and if you don’t enjoy it then please choose another photographer because I do not stray from that, as you can see in all of my images.
What kind of camera do you shoot with?
I have three cameras a Nikon D810 (My main body) a Sony A7iii (My second shooters main body) and a Canon T6i.
Canceling and rescheduling?
If you have already put a deposit down for a date and then have to move/cancel it, the deposit is non refundable and a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date. However we can reschedule a shoot if weather is really that awful but some of my favorite sessions take place in rain/snow/wind storms! We will make the decision together whether we need to reschedule or not!
Will you give me a discount?
No, I do not offer discounts. I will do my absolute best to help create a wedding package that fits your budget and gets you the most bang for your buck. I am priced very fairly and I promise you that I will give my 110% dedication to ensure that your images are everything you wanted and more!
