WHAT PRODUCTS ARE INCLUDED IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES?
All packages include professionally edited high resolution digital photos on a custom wooden flash drive and an 16x20 framed print. Photo albums are included with Packages 2 & 3. The wooden flash drive is sent to you via Priority Mail and the album and framed print are hand delivered.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS AND ALBUM?
Digital photos are delivered in approximately 5 weeks after your wedding. Once you have received your photos, the album will be drafted the following week. Photo albums are prepared by Green Valley Photography and clients approve the draft pages before it is printed. Clients select the album cover color and the words embossed on the cover, i.e. name, date, etc. Once you approve the draft, it will be ready approximately 2 weeks after that.
CAN CLIENTS USE THEIR DIGITAL PHOTOS TO GET PRINTS MADE?
A printing rights release form is included so you can print photos on your own or use Green Valley Photography's professional photo lab. Our lab is only a tiny bit more in price, but the quality is ten times better than average store prints. You purchase through a gallery and the prints are shipped to your door.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE IN-PERSON CONSULTATION 30 DAYS BEFORE THE WEDDING?
We will meet to discuss your wedding day details and prepare a timeline. If there are any heirlooms, unique ceremony vows, surprises, family traditions, etc. then let us know so we can watch out for it. You can give us a list of people you want in the family formal photos and we will call out their name so it is a fast and organized process on your wedding day.
WHAT IS NEEDED AT THE TIME OF BOOKING?
A $500 deposit and a signed contract is due at the time of booking and final payment are due 30 days before your wedding day. We can accept cash, check, or credit cards.
WHY SHOULD I DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
An engagement session is a great time to think about why you love your mate and fall in love again. It's awesome practice in front of the camera and the photos can be used for 'Save the Date' cards.
WHAT IS A 'FIRST LOOK' AND WHY SHOULD WE DO ONE?
A 'first look' is when the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony on their wedding day. It's one of the only times they have alone that day and a wonderful opportunity to get pictures together without interruption. If you are superstitious and don't want to see your fiance before the ceremony, you can do a first look with your parents or your wedding party. Also, you can do a 'first touch' where you don't see your fiance but hold hands behind a door and read your cards or say a prayer together.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR A WEDDING?
Travel fees apply for any venues beyond 1 hour from Charlotte, NC. For a wedding that is more than 3 hours drive, hotel accommodations and mileage rates apply.
