What does your wedding process look like?


Why is The Adrianne Photo so DAMN expensive?

 

Yikes. These are the questions we’ve priced to avoid yet still get asked. You’ve probably heard other photographers talk about the unique experience they’re going to give you, but what we’ve learned in the 5 years we’ve been capturing meaningful moments is

it’s not about us; it’s about you.

Having done this for over 5 years, we’ve asked and observed what clients need the most when it comes to photography. Planning for a big event or wedding is like taking on a second job. The Adrianne Photo provides prospective clients resources that cover a range of key topics

so that planning feels less like a job and more like a collaboration in building your dream Day.

If you check out our packages, you’ll notice that most items typically listed as add-ons that would cost you extra with other photographers are already included with The Adrianne Photo:

  • Access and Download Images of Entire Gallery

    • Can you believe that some photographers charge PER PHOTO?!

  • Leveraging the use of Technology

    • We can email back and forth but, that thing called text, iMessage, WhatsApp, etc, we communicate that way too!

    • Client Management Portal

      • We use HoneyBook so we provide information transparently and so clients can efficiently review proposals, contracts, make debit or credit card payments, view invoices and billing, draft timelines, send out questionnaires, etc. This saves us both time by reducing the back and forth.

    • Mobile Gallery App

      • If you’re on your phone, take this chance to experience the mobile gallery app every client receives. Make sure to only click the link if you’re on mobile: open mobile gallery.

  • Experience + Planning Resources

    • No, not the “unique experience” every photographer tries to sell you. I mean experience in years. Simply opening our ears to hundreds of our clients helped us develop resources to provide you like (ideal timeline, first look, posing guides, how to prep before your session, etc).

    • For weddings, we provide you with a comprehensive 50-page wedding guide. If a wedding planner wasn’t in the budget, you basically just got one for FREE.

    • Mileage

  • Friendship

    • The best thing though? Because of the meaningful moments we’ve captured together, we end up creating meaningful friendships with our clients - I mean friends - too.

Photography. Style. Aesthetic.


What Is your style?

 
 

You know what they say,

a picture paints a thousand words.

I strive to go beyond documentation. My favorite past time? Pushing my camera trigger to meaningful moments. I truly believe in the difference between posing versus guiding. Be prepared for some silly questions. I’ve got them right under my belt, ready to release for some good genuine laughs. We can all admit we’ve been getting so much fake news. The last thing we need are fake smiles.

I can go on and on about my style, but you’re here to hire my as your photographer, not your biographer.

TL;DR: 99 Problems but your photos ain’t one.


Do you give me original raw/unedited copies of the photos?

The short answer is no.

It is not industry standard to provide any kind of unedited, RAW, negative files. If I sent them to you as they came out of the camera, you couldn’t do anything with them without running them through special software.

A RAW photo is a carpenter having a wood shop full of tools and materials to build a table, and the ability to create whatever he wants. A JPEG is buying a table at the store, you either like it as is, or you don’t, but there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s like asking a chef to serve you uncooked food. I can keep serving examples, but I’m sure you get the gist of why professional photographers DO NOT give RAW or unedited images.

Please familiarize yourself with your photographer’s style so you know what to expect for your own images. Digital Negative Proofs are not for the purpose of distribution, posting, sharing, manipulation of any kind. Should you require RAW/Unedited images, a separate contract agreement needs to be signed that stipulates it is not to be publicly displayed and only for archival purposes along with a $1,000 per 100 photos fee.


What is the difference between edited photos and edited + retouched?

All final images are edited for color, saturation, exposure and sharpness ensuring that each image is on its own the best it can be.

For retouched images we take things a step further by clearing up blemishes, smoothing the skin, removing as much interference from the back ground as possible i.e. that scuba diver that pops his head out of the water just as we are capturing the perfect kiss etc.

Retouched images are transformed from great images into pieces of art!


My venue is very dark. How does your studio handle these situations?

We have shot in the darkest of dark chapels and reception halls so no need to worry! If the situation allows, we will set up additional lighting to ensure we get focused pictures. Some chapels do not allow for flash photography; and for that reason, we shoot on camera’s with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures


Have you shot at my venue before?

We have shot at hundreds of venues, so there is a good chance that we have. However, if we have not, we will get to the venue early on the day of and be sure to perform a thorough walk-through to scout out the best photography locations. We also do extensive online research prior to your big day!


What rights do I have to the digital prints?

 
 

If your selected packages includes digital files you will receive reproduction rights to all your images. This gives you the right to reproduce the images for personal use, so you can use them for prints, sharing them on your social media, making canvases, etc. Commercial use is not allowed if not separately agreed on. The copyright of the images will remain with the photographer.


After the Shoot


When and how will my photos be delivered?

Within six weeks from wedding date you’ll be given access to your own private, password protected gallery.

If your balance is paid in full, there will be no watermarks places over your photos, and you’ll immediately have the option to download all photos in the gallery in full-resolution.


Do you deliver every image you shoot?

It depends on what the situation calls for. If there is a meaningful moment happening, those are the shots I live for and strive to capture. If there are specific details you need me for, we will plan this all out and note it during the timeline planning session.

You’re hiring a professional to take quality pictures and to handle your photos professionally too.

We do not cull to meet a certain number of delivered images, so every image that isn’t blurry, redundant, or unflattering is carefully edited and delivered.
