Having your questions answered is important! Here we try to answer the most frequent ones we are asked.

Feel free to give Michelle a call or text 859-391-6400 with any questions!

Q:  How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed?

A:  We’ve been photographing weddings professionally and full time since 1994. Rob did the numbers a couple of years ago and we are over 2000 weddings now!

Q: What would you say is your style?

A: There are photography and editing styles that come and go, but we want you to look back at your images and not regret how they look because your photographer edited the images in a faddy style.

Our editing style is timeless, we like Bright and Colorful photographs. I like to edit everything true to color with a punch of brightness. I also add black and white images and some filters depending on what will look the best with the images.

Our photography style tends to be more Candid and Documentary. We work with a mix of available light and fill flash, depending on what will look the best. We will schedule time for the formal photographs and pose everyone properly; however, we do not want to monopolize your wedding day. We document your wedding in a way that you can relive your day completely. 

Q: Which is better, 1 photographer or 2 photographers?

A: That will depend on the style of images you prefer. 1 photographer is great for small weddings with a small wedding party where you are not looking for a lot of candid photographs. 2 photographers is definitely better for a larger wedding with a full day. Two photographers will give you a more documentary style, more candid photographs and generally more photographs overall.

Q: Will Rob and Michelle be our photographers?

A: Our most popular collections guarantee the two of us (Collections 5+), however if our smaller collections fit your wedding better, we can't promise it will be Rob and I, although sometimes we photograph those (If we are still available closer to your date). Our smaller collections are photographed by Allie, Lara or Ashley either alone or with a second photographer. All three are wonderful photographers and we have full confidence you will love them! Here is a little bit about them: Our Team

Q: Can you tell me about the "Optional Free Engagement Session"?

A: Our free engagement session is optional. We do not add it into the cost of your collection because we don't want you to feel like you Have to do it! You are not paying anything for it. Because it is free, we offer to do the session at two lovely parks in Northern Kentucky where we are located. You will have the option to purchase the digital files or prints afterwards. Most photographers who offer an included Engagement session, just include it in the price of the package, so you pay for it whether you use it or not. 

Q:  Is there a limit to the number of photos taken?  

A: Nope!  We will not tell you “No”. There is no limit to the number of photographs taken and delivered.

Q: Seriously? So how many Really?

A: Seriously, No Limit! Would I kid you? How about a rough (very rough) average? The average is probably anywhere from 800-1200. While some photographers claim 200-300 images are enough, we believe that you should see as much as possible from your day. We are documentary photographers and we document your day in a way that you can relive every moment, not just those chosen few.

Q: Can we meet before the wedding to go over times and details?

A: Of course! We encourage it! We want your day to go as smoothly as possible, so an in person or virtual meeting (Or even a phone call!) is a great way to make sure we get everything you want and in a timely manner. 

Q:  Do we receive all the photos? Are they high resolution, color corrected and without watermarks?

A:  I (Michelle) do edit every image. I remove duplicates and mistakes, but beyond that, you will receive a color version of every image plus a selection of black and white and other effects. The images you receive are Full High Resolution (Not resized), Color Corrected and free of Watermarks.  Everything is ready to print from your flash drive as well as available to download from your online gallery. 

When we share images online and while viewing your image gallery, you will see a watermark. This is for protection from theft (Yes it happens) and also advertising. However, downloaded images and images on your USB drive are NOT watermarked. 

Q: Can we have a sneak peek?

A: Of Course! I will normally post a sneak peek of a few of our early favorite images the week or two after the wedding. I will post these on our Facebook Page as well as share them on Instagram

Q: When will we receive our photographs?

A: Editing generally takes about 4-6 weeks. Occasionally, if we are really busy (Usually May and October) it may take me a bit longer, but that is not the norm. You will know I am done when I share a large gallery on our Facebook page (These images will be watermarked, but you are welcome to tag and share, of course). Shortly thereafter, you will receive a link in your email to your online gallery with all of your images. You will also receive a USB drive with all of the image files and print release.

Q: Do we receive a copyright release to the images so that we can have them printed elsewhere?

A: Of course! We actually share copyright. That way we can use images on our website, advertising, IG etc. By sharing copyright you are wlcome to make prints, share on Facebook, IG etc. The only thing it does not allow you to do, is to sell the images or claim that you are the artist. 

Q: Can I play with my images and add filters on Instagram Etc?

A: If you like a specific filter, feel free to add it to your photographs. You are welcome to edit your images as you would like. We are not sticklers; they are your pictures!

VQ: How will my video be edited? Will I only recieve a 5 minute video?

A: Rob will edit two versions of your wedding video. A longer 40-90 minute documentry edit with the complete ceremony, toasts, dances etc and a shorter (4-6 minute) highlight reel set to music. This way, you don't have to choose one over the other!

VQ: When will we receive our Video?

A: Rob films and edits all of the video. The video edits take longer to complete. There is a lot involved in putting together the footage and sound. Your video usually takes between 3 and 4 months to be completed. Once finished, you will recieve both the Highlight and Documentary edit on a USB drive. 

VQ: Can we purchase the RAW video files?

A: Yes! You will have the option to purchase the RAW video footage.

Q: Do you have insurance? Will you bring back up equipment?

A: Yes and Of course!

Q: Do we need to feed you?

A: We do appreciate a meal since it is a long day. Plus, we dislike taking photographs of people eating! You do not need to assign us a seat. We can always find a place to hang out. However, if you prefer not to we will just need time (About an hour) to get food ourselves. 

Q: Have you photographed at my location?

A: Most Likely. I know you have not even told us where, LOL! But if it is anywhere in the Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky area, chances are pretty good. But even if we haven't, we love a challenge! New places get our creative juices flowing. 

Q: We have more questions. Do we have to meet in person?

A: Of course not! I would be happy to chat via phone, text or even Skype/Zoom/Google Meet

Q: We have more questions and would really like to meet in person.

A: Great! Drop me an email or text or you can even call me and we will get you on the calendar for a meeting. (Panera is a good thing!)

Q: Do your prices include sales tax?

A: We do have to charge 6% sales tax as required by the state. We do not include that in the package price. 

Q: I have heard enough! We are ready to book! What are the next steps?

A: Yay! That is wonderful news! Just confirm your date with us and I will send you an online contract/proposal. Once we have that signed and the retainer (1/3rd of the collection price) is paid, you will be booked and on the calendar! Your remaining balance is not due until 4 weeks before the wedding.

Q: What payment methods do you accept?

A: We accept all payment methods, Cash, Check and Credit Cards as well as Paypal and BTC & ETH (Contact us for details)
