FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q ~ I see that your offices are in Dallas, Texas and Paris, France, but my wedding is somewhere else. Can you still shoot it?
A ~ Absolutely! We travel for almost all of our weddings, and in many cases there are no additional travel fees. No matter where your wedding is, we’ll be there to cover it!
Q ~ What about my engagement or bridal session? Can you cover that, too?
A ~ For those located in or coming to Dallas or Paris, we can easily include a bridal or engagement session in your package. For those elsewhere, in some cases we may be able to coordinate with our existing travel schedule and photograph your portrait session with no additional travel fees. If that isn’t possible, you can have us come to you for an additional fee, or we can fly in early the week of the wedding to photograph an additional session (some additional lodging fees may be required). Otherwise, we will be happy to recommend a third-party photographer in your area who you can contract with to photograph your portraits.
Q ~ Do you include the high resolution digital files?
A ~ Yes, the digital negatives are included in all of my packages. However, we strongly recommend reading our info page on digital negatives to learn more about what they are and how you can use them.
Q ~ Do you work with a second photographer or assistant?
A ~ Yes, all of our wedding packages include a second shooter. Typically the primary shooter (Stacy Reeves) will focus on the bride while the secondary shooter (usually Jena or Jason) will focus on the groom, capturing different angles during the ceremony, and assisting with lighting and detail shots during the reception. Stacy Reeves Photography is a team effort, comprised of photographers who regularly work together and who have been trained in similar styles of shooting. In the rare event that a staff members is unavailable to second shoot, we always hire professional full-time photographers with experience shooting multiple weddings on their own who have a similar aesthetic style. Anyone we bring to your wedding will be experienced, reliable, and very talented.
Q ~ What if I only want one photographer? Can I get a discount on a package by cutting the second photographer?
A ~ This is possible for small elopements only. For larger weddings, especially those with nighttime or reception coverage, due to our shooting style it is required that two photographers be present at every wedding. This is for your benefit as much as ours, so that if anything happens to one photographer, you will still have a qualified photographer there to capture your wedding day! If you feel strongly that you only need one photographer, let us know and we’ll be happy to discuss options for you.
Q ~ What parts of the wedding will you be photographing?
A ~ All of our packages include eight consecutive hours of coverage, and it’s completely up to you to decide when you want those eight hours to begin. Typically we arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony and stay until the end of the reception.
Q ~ What if I need more or less than eight hours of coverage?
A ~ Through nearly a decade of shooting weddings, we have discovered that eight hours is the perfect amount of coverage for the vast majority of our clients. However, if you feel that your wedding has unique needs, you’re welcome to add additional hours, trade hours out for other items or services, or create a custom package with the exact amount of hours you need.
Q ~ How much do your couples spend on photography on average?
A ~ Currently, most of our couples spend around $6000-8000 USD on their wedding photography package. This amount includes eight hours of coverage by two photographers, digital negatives, a portrait session, and an album.
Q ~ Do we really need an album?
A ~ Nearly all of our clients purchase albums eventually, whether it’s included in their initial package or purchased later on down the road. Personally, we think that if you’re going to spend thousands on wedding photography, you should walk away from it with something tangible to display your investment. We know all too well how easy it is for memory cards and hard drives of photos to sit in drawers or boxes, waiting to be printed off, and we don’t want your wedding photos to suffer that same fate. Unlike traditional wedding albums with an abundance of boring posed formals and messy slip-in mats, our coffee-table albums are beautiful, modern, custom-designed showpieces that you will be proud to show off for years to come. Ultimately the choice is up to you, and we will never pressure you into buying something you don’t want, but our experience with our clients is that nearly every client ends up wanting and purchasing an album at some point.
Q ~ Can I meet with you to see some sample albums?
A ~ Absolutely! In fact, we strongly recommend it. If possible we will set up an in-person meeting, or if our travel schedules don’t match up, we can set up a Skype webcam chat at a time that is convenient for you.
Q ~ How long will it take to see my proofs?
A ~ Turnaround time for portrait sessions is 1-2 weeks. Portrait sessions can be turned around as quickly as the next-day in emergency situations (for example, last-minute bridals or engagements) but rush prints may be subject to an additional rush fee. Turnaround time for weddings is approximately 3-4 weeks.
Q ~ What is the process to book you?
A ~ You can secure your wedding date with a signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of $1500 USD, which will give you 60 days to decide on the package you want. Once you select your package, the $1500 will be applied towards the package and the remaining balance will be split into one or two payments. Our booking system is entirely online, so let us know as soon as you are ready to reserve your date and we will send you a private link to electronically sign your contract and submit your payment. Please note that all money paid is non-refundable (except for situations outlined in the contract), so make sure your date is final before placing your deposit.
Q ~ What forms of payment do you accept?
A ~ We accept checks, wire transfer, bitcoin, Visa/MC, and AMEX.
