Frequently Asked Questions

FAQS: Wedding Photography

Will you come to our rehearsal dinner?

I'm honored to have the opportunity to capture your special moments with your loved ones. Even before the wedding day! It would be my pleasure to meet your family and closest friends to help them feel more at ease and comfortable when the wedding day comes. I will also get the opportunity to document a story about your wedding weekend and not just the wedding itself! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email to discuss pricing information based on your rehearsal dinner location, shot list requests, and time requirements.

I understand how important it is to capture the perfect moments of your wedding day. That's why I always strive to produce the highest quality photographs that you can be proud of and use to tell your story. I only share the best of my work, just like a wedding dress designer who sells you a dress that's perfectly designed without any mistakes. If, for some reason, I accidentally take a photo that's out of focus or has poor lighting, I assure you that you won't want those pictures. As your photographer, it's my pleasure to remove such photos from your memory.

I know that some people wonder whether they can own the RAW photos. You certainly can, but it comes with an additional fee. When you own the RAW images, you have complete control over them and can edit them however you'd like. However, it's important to note that these photos can only be viewed in professional photo editing software like Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Also, if you do choose to own the copyrights to your images, I will need your permission to use them for marketing purposes.

Do you give us all the wedding photos?

What is your turnaround time for wedding photos?

I understand that you are eagerly anticipating the photos and I am equally excited to share them with you! I have a great track record of delivering photos promptly, with sneak preview photos available for instant download within a week. The remaining gallery will be released for download and ordering prints within six weeks.

What fees do you charge?

Yes, I have to charge a 6.625% NJ sales tax. My invoices also include a 4% credit card transaction fee, but you can totally avoid this and pay cash app and save 4%!

Which wedding venues do you like photographing at most?

See my list of the top dreamiest & most enchanting New Jersey Venues to get an idea of which ones I had the best experience at and will photograph beautifully.

Do you have a backup plan in case you get sick?

Planning a wedding can be stressful, and it's natural to have concerns about unexpected situations. For your peace of mind, I want to assure you that I have your back. In the event of an emergency, I have built relationships with reliable wedding photographers in NJ and NY who can step in or refer you to. You don't have to worry about a thing. 

If you're still feeling anxious, consider adding a second photographer to your wedding collection. This option provides added insurance & security for your precious memories. I want you to feel confident and at ease on your special day, and I'm here to help make that happen.

Do you have insurance?

Yes I do.

Do you shoot video too?

Oh no, I wish I could have helped with shooting and editing videos, but unfortunately that's not my area of expertise. Don't worry though, I'd love to suggest some really talented vendors who can help you make your wedding day extra special with their video skills!

Will we get featured online?

I understand that your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and I want to ensure that you feel comfortable and happy with my photography service. Before your big day, I always ask for your permission to film some behind-the-scenes footage that could be used for social media content. This helps other photographers learn from my experience and provides inspiration for couples who are searching for a skilled photographer. If you're worried about your privacy or would rather keep your wedding photos private, I completely understand. You have the option to obtain the full copyright release to your images (for a fee), which means I won't use them for marketing purposes. My goal is to make sure that you're happy with every aspect of my photography service, and I'm always here to address any concerns you may have.

Do I have to order prints through you?

To ensure that your wedding photographs are preserved in the best possible quality, ordering prints from the online gallery shop is highly recommended. This way, you can be confident that your photos will be printed with long-lasting and accurate colors that truly represent your special day and skin tones. The difference in paper and print quality is significant compared to other labs and popular drug stores, so you can trust that your prints will look their absolute best.

How do we reserve our wedding date?

I'm so excited to work with you! To secure my services, all I need from you is a signed agreement and a retainer payment of $1,500. You can take your time to pay the remaining 50% - just make sure to do so six months before the wedding. The final balance can be paid on the big day.

We are awkward in front of the camera, can you help us!?

I totally get it – having your photos taken can feel a bit nerve-wracking. But trust me, there's no need to worry. The whole experience is meant to be fun and laid-back! I'll be there to guide you every step of the way, from posing to posture to hand placement. I even share behind the scenes footage of how I do it here. You'll look amazing, and I promise to capture all the love, in between moments, and magic between you two; you'll forget the camera is even there! 

How many wedding photos will i receive?

Every wedding is special in its own way and has a set of unique variables and moments that are captured. Some weddings may have a lot of action and energy, while others may be more relaxed or may be because the wedding required more travel. But if you hire two Suess Moments wedding photographers instead of just one, you'll receive even more photos to cherish forever! The more joy, laughter, tears of happiness, hugs, and fun moments there are, the more memories we'll capture. I want to make sure I don't miss any key moments, so I always do my best to capture everything, sort through the beautiful candid and posed photos, and share the very best ones with you from your dream wedding.

Here is the list of some weddings and the photo count that was delivered:

Do you edit our photos?

At Suess Moments, I believe that every photo should be treasured - that's why I take great care to fully edit each image to match the exceptional quality that you see on the website. With three different photography styles - the photo edits includes adjusting the tone and white balance, exposure, cropping, and straightening the images, as well as converting them to black and white (if necessary) and sharpening them.

For close-up portraits of you and your partner, I will provide special photo retouching treatment to create smoother skin texture.

If you require additional editing, such as body manipulation or removal/addition of objects, I am here to help. Please note, however, that this may result in an additional fee of $30 to $200 per image.

We hope that Suess Moments' commitment to making you satisfied inspires you to trust me with your sweet moments.

How would you describe your working style?

To create the most memorable wedding day for my couples, I work closely with them to prepare a wedding timeline and shot list. This detailed planning helps me capture the key moments that they value the most. I know that each couple's wedding is unique, and my goal is to tell that story through photographs.

As a wedding photographer, I always strive to make my couples feel at ease and comfortable throughout
the entire process. I am grateful to have received positive feedback from past couples for my organization skills, friendly demeanor, and attentiveness. Building good relationships with vendors, families, and wedding parties is essential to me, as it ensures that everyone is on the same page and that the day runs smoothly. You can say I am pretty much an outgoing type, but I also can be a chameleon and chill and provide calmness to the room when necessary.

During the wedding day, I guide posture and posing to make my couples look and feel their best. I use lighting techniques to capture magic in low light settings, get creative when inspired by your wedding vibes. My focus is on capturing 90% of the wedding day candidly to tell a beautiful love story. The other 10% involves posed and guided shots during formal portrait sessions.

I understand that every couple is different, and it can be challenging to describe my working style in words. I have a YouTube channel where I share behind-the-scenes footage and tips for couples planning their wedding. I hope that behind-the-scenes wedding photography content will give you a better sense of the wedding day experience.

Are you excited as I am?! I can't wait to learn more about you, your wedding dreams and photography goals!
