Q&A

 

HOW CAN I FIND OUT YOUR AVAILABILITY?

WEDDINGS | ELOPEMENTS ~ Although we have almost reached our booking capacity for this year for weddings, we still have a few openings remaining. We are graciously accepting bookings for 2017/2018. We typically book for weddings or elopements 12-18 months in advance. 

PORTRAIT SESSIONS ~ use the Contact Us or email me info@imagestudiosgroup.com.  We are currently booking 2017 all portrait & Glamour Boudoir sessions on a limited basis.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS|ELOPEMENTS|ADVENTURE SESSIONS?

Who doesn’t love to travel? I certainly do, and excited to go anywhere! I’m from the a town called Kerrville in the Hill Country. But, the Houston area has been home for several years now. My wedding seasons are split between Austin, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Houston & New Mexico depending on time of year.  If outside of those areas, I have a bucket list of places I want to travel & explore. So, YES I want to travel to where ever your exciting Destination Wedding / Elopement / Adventure Session is... I'm down!

HOW CAN I SEE MORE OF YOUR PORTFOLIO? 

Our website shows some of our favorite photos, but our INSTAGRAM has the latest and most recent projects we’ve worked on.

HOW ARE IMAGES DELIVERED AND WHEN?

Digital Wedding & Elopement galleries are created and available for a year in your own site.  Your personal site also boasts an in-house store for ordering your prints that will be delivered in a beautiful boutique package, to your doorstep.  All images will be delivered within 30 days of your wedding day. But, I'm an overachiever and normally it's more like 2 weeks.

REGARDING PRINTING, DO YOU HANDLE OR CAN WE? DO WE HAVE PRINTING RIGHTS TO OUR IMAGES?

Absolutely! These are your pictures, and you’re able to print whenever and however many you’d like. I will suggest printing companies because I still request that the photos to retain their quality. If you prefer that I handle the printing for convenience, I provide a la cart pricing for prints, albums, etc to include with your wedding package and all from your own in-house store connected to you site.

CAN WE MEET BEFOREHAND?

Yes, Please.... I prefer it.  I’d love to get to know you two and your story! I approach each wedding uniquely and believe they each tell their own story with the details, location, colors, and all those involved in the day. We will discuss your style and my approach!  After that, we’ll keep in touch up until a few weeks out and finalize any final details or walk through the ceremony location together to ease any stress you may feel the day of—like I said, that’s my job.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS DO WE GET FOR OUR WEDDING?

Two. Myself and a a second photographer, not an assistant in training, not a student. An actual business owning wedding photographer. Additional photographers, videographers available upon request.

OKAY, WE WANT TO BECOME AN ISG~WEDDING COUPLE! NOW WHAT?

That's some Awesomeness right there!!! First let’s talk wedding details, your hopes for the photography and packages. Do you want an engagement shoot included? Let’s do it soon so you can send out Save the Dates. Do you want albums included? Awesome, you already get a really nice leather one!  After securing your date with your non-refundable deposit, and send you your welcome Boutique box full of all sorts of bridal & wedding planning goodies. 

HOW DO I BECOME AN ISG BRIDE?

Insert [HAPPY DANCE] To officially book the date, we require a signed contract and a $1000 non-refundable retainer which is applied towards your wedding photography balance.  The date is not saved until your retainer is in.  If you have already decided you LUV us, you can and pay your retainer here!

We are very proud to offer our exclusive payment plan for all of our wedding collections after your initial retainer is paid. Just ask for details!

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND WE WEAR FOR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES?

Be yourself. That’s what I will always recommend. For your wedding, you’re dressed to the 9s, looking your absolute best in a beautiful gown or suit. Take this opportunity of an engagement shoot to have a little fun and incorporate things about yourself or your relationship! Typically couples choose two locations, and two outfit changes. I’ve also put this cool little mood board together should you feel a bit stuck.

HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU TYPICALLY SHOOT FOR A WEDDING?

Typically 8 hours per wedding and 4 for intimate or elopements, though it may vary. I want to be there from start to finish... from the first hair appointment to the dirty dance moves. That being said, We offer 3 collections ORGANIC | ELEGANT | DREAM with hours starting at 4 , 6 or 8 hours of coverage but, we can add hours as needed so, we’ll work together on that.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?

Relaxed, natural, candid with a Fine Art flair. I will always prefer natural light over artificial and encourage the timing of your portraits. Although I have been known to shoot in the middle of the day and late at night with great success, but that's how I roll!

CAN YOU HELP US LEADING UP TO THE WEDDING DAY? WE’RE STRESSED!

Would love to! A little secret about myself, not only do I love capturing weddings, I'm in total Mom Grand Master Yoda mode at all of my weddings.  The guys love me because I remind them of their mother and the ladies love me because I remind them of their mother! I'm there to help with whatever needs to be done! Also, In your welcome box, I have created a timeline and a monthly planner starting at 12 months from your wedding date to help with what should be done and how soon should it be scheduled. Most of our #ISGBrides love this feature and have found it very helpful.

HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU TYPICALLY SHOOT PER YEAR?

I like to keep it around 15 for weddings and elopements a year to maintain the same level of professionalism, detail and attention to each client’s wedding. I feel is very important to be involved.  After all, I want to be your lifetime photographer not just your wedding photographer so we need to establish that trust and be good friends.
