Info & FAQ
What style of photography do you do?
We cover weddings in a very candid style but don't think photography should be limited by a genre.
While we're very hands-off and unobtrusive in our coverage of the day we do believe that there is a time and place for gorgeous, casually posed images of the bride and groom together. So while we won't stop you and make you pose while cutting the cake, we would like about an hour (or more) alone with you both if possible sometime during the day to create some images of you without your wedding party or guests looking on. Our images of the guests at the wedding are almost 100% candid and while we won't stop entire tables at the reception and make them pose for "table shots", we prefer instead to capture them laughing, smiling, dancing and having a great time.
What are your wedding packages like?
To make things simple we have Three Wedding Photography Collections. For more information please fill out our contact form and we'll be happy to forward our information to you.
How many photographers will be at my wedding?
All our Photography Collections comes with One Photographer (Safraz) and most times an Assistant (Lisa). You can add on our Second Photographer for the full day at an additional cost. This is especially recommended for weddings larger than 200 guests and for Hindu Weddings.
What is your payment schedule like?
A Retainer of 50% + The signing of our Contract is due to reserve your date .
The balance is due One month prior to the Wedding.
If booking under thirty days before the Wedding the entire contract amount is due at the time of signing.
Do you do engagement sessions?
Yes we do. We promise it'll be Fun, we'll get to know each other a little better all while capturing & creating stunning imagery of you both.
Can you hold the date for me?
I'm sorry, but we can't hold the date. To be fair to everyone we can't "Hold" a date without a retainer and a signed contract. We accept bookings on a first come / first served basis.
Can you get pictures of both the bride and groom getting dressed?
We usually cover the bride's preparation. If the groom is nearby and we have adequate time, sure we'll be able to get his prep as well.
If the groom is getting dressed at a separate location we recommend adding on our second photographer to have coverage of the groom preparation.
Can we have another Photographer, Family member or Friend photograph our wedding?
Having to work around another photographer who is not part of our team, will hinder our ability to capture the best photographs and will affect the final product. Guests taking personal photos is fine, once they do not get in our way.
Do you do wedding albums?
We provide Heirloom Wedding Albums & Wall Art. (These are at an additional cost).
How long does it take to get our wedding pictures?
We will have an online preview (a sneak peek) on our Social Media within two weeks.
Hi Resolution Images are available within four to six weeks after the Wedding.
Wedding Albums & Wall Art takes a little longer.
What kind of equipment do you use?
Top of the line Professional Nikon equipment and backups.
If we run overtime will you stay?
Surely. We do have an overtime rate and it goes into effect only with your permission and approval that we continue coverage. We will bill you for those hours after you return from your honeymoon.
Can I provide a list of images I want captured?
We generally don't work from a Shot list.
Aside from a list of who will be included in the formal portraits, it'll be counter productive for us to work like this & create imagery similar to what you've seen displayed on our Social media / Website.
What if it rains on our wedding day, where will we do the portrait session?
The client must provide a suitable indoor setting for the portrait session as Awesome Photography cannot be held responsible for inclement weather. This is especially necessary during the months of June - December.
What if our wedding gets cancelled or postponed?
If in the unfortunate event the wedding date gets cancelled, the Retainer paid is not refundable.
If the wedding date gets postponed, your Retainer will be held and will be put towards booking the new date.
(We recommend contacting us prior to selecting a new date(s) to confirm our availability).
Do you also do video?
At the moment we only provide Photography Services. Rather than trying to juggle providing both services, we've focused on providing Quality Photography, Album & Wall Art services and a Great Customer Experience.
Can we have the RAW files so we can edit the images ourselves?
Unfortunately No, we do not give out our RAW files.
