Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you based and where do you shoot?
We are based in Birmingham, AL, though we have offices/homes in Auburn and Mobile, so we serve the entire state. We shoot 75% of our weddings in Alabama, and we do not charge any additional fees for Alabama weddings; however, we’ll go anywhere to capture your special day.
How long will you stay at our wedding?
As long as you need us. All our packages include 10 hours of coverage, and you can expand them up to 14 hours should you desire.
Do you charge extra for travel?
Weddings in Alabama never have additional fees for travel.
Weddings outside of Alabama but within 100 miles of one of our locations also do not have additional fees for travel. This would include some locations in Georgia and Mississippi. If you are more than 100 miles from one of our locations, we add the cost of travel and accommodations if required. We’ll do our best to keep expenses to a minimum.
How many photographers will there be?
How many would you like? Bryan is our lead photographer; all the pictures you see on this site are him doing his thing. However, we have four additional photographers so you can build your package with as many photographers as you like. Also, every one of our photographers is trained by Bryan and have their equipment certified by him.
How many images will I receive?
We will give you all the images from your wedding, individually edited to the Eleven 11 Release Standard (you can see a live example what and how we edit at the blog post here) - minus doubles and the ones of you blinking or looking weird. There is no set quantity of images but when I look at our historical evidence the smallest number of pictures a couple has gotten with one photographer is 506 (very small wedding), and the largest number was 1,362 (very large wedding and 12 hours of coverage).
How will I receive my photographs?
First, we'll send you a sneak peek gallery with up to 40 pictures that contain all the highlights of your day. You can post and share this wherever you like. This gallery is digital, and we add the gallery to the same website you’ve been using to interact with us. It’s fully password protected. After that, we'll send you your full gallery - also online and password protected. All your images are high resolution with print rights, and you can download them directly from the gallery once you’ve met any outstanding obligations to us.
You can also add a thumb drive deliver to any package and we will send your images on a thumb drive.
When will I receive my images?
If we don’t have a wedding the day after your wedding then your sneak peek gallery will be posted the next morning. Otherwise, it will be delivered within 48 hours of your wedding. We like you to be able to go through some of the pictures with your friends and family before they head home. The rest of your pictures will be delivered within 14 days of your wedding, at least that is what the contract requires.
The truth is since 2016 we’ve done over 100 weddings, and every one of them has had all their images completed in 48 hours.
Will my pictures be edited?
Absolutely. You can read about our exact editing standard and how it works here.
Do I have to decide on an album right now?
Nope. If you prefer you can book a digital-only package now and decide on albums later – even after the wedding. However, there is a 25% discount on albums booked with the wedding package because it’s less work to do it all together.
How do I make a booking?
Just use our contact form to drop us a quick note. Alternatively, make an appointment to meet with us if you would like – we’d love that. Or we can just chat on Skype. It’s really whatever form of contact you prefer. To confirm a booking we ask for a signed contract and a retainer of $500.
