FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you located?
I am located in both Ware, Massachusetts and Dallas, Texas. I work with clients in the greater DFW area, in my home state of Massachusetts, throughout New England, and beyond. For pricing and logistics regarding destination weddings, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can chat!
How can we get in touch?
The best way to reach me is via email. I am usually very prompt in responding to email and will most likely respond to your inquiry within the same day. But, please allow up to 24-48 hours for email reply just in case. My direct email is email@example.com.
How do we receive our photos?
I will provide you with an online digital gallery of professionally edited images for you to view and download. You will have access to this private gallery link for 6 months following the date of your wedding. Please be sure to download all files within that time frame. Included in all wedding packages, you will also receive a keepsake USB drive of the professionally edited high-resolution images for you to keep. These are typically mailed to you within about 1 to 2 weeks after receiving your online gallery.
Do you require a wedding deposit?
Yes, a $500.00 retainer is required to secure your wedding date. This will go toward your final balance and is non-refundable. The remaining balance is due one month prior to your wedding date.
What is your most popular wedding package?
Wedding Collection II is the most popular option among my couples. 8 hours tends to be the perfect amount of coverage for most weddings, and many clients like the option of a having a complimentary engagement session included in their package.
How long does it take to receive my images?
For most weddings, the typical turnaround time is 4 to 6 weeks following your wedding date for you to have access to your online gallery. A “sneak peek” gallery of several images will be provided via Facebook within 7-10 days following your wedding date.
What’s your editing style?
I have a vibrant, bright, and bold editing style. My goal is to provide you with photos that reflect the true spirit and look of your wedding day. I do light retouching to make my images “pop”, but I like to keep colors natural. I strive to capture genuine emotion of the day so you can always look back and treasure those beautiful moments. I combine posed family & couple’s portraits with candid and relaxed, natural shots.
Should we do a first look?
First looks are THE BEST. I absolutely love them. Here’s why:
- They give you much more time as a couple on your wedding day. A first look early in the day versus waiting to see each other during the traditional ceremony gives you that many more hours of togetherness on your day.
- They can often be more intimate. Without the distraction of stage fright and parent hand-offs, it can be a very special few minutes of alone time.
- Being able to get family photos done prior to the ceremony gives you so much more time to enjoy the rest of your day with less stress. In my opinion, this is one of the best reasons to consider a first look.
Do you have vendor recommendations?
Yes! I’ve had the pleasure of working with really wonderful people- DJ’s, florists, wedding planners, venue hosts, you name it! I’m happy to provide recommendations should you need them.
How do you accept payment?
I am happy to accept either cash, check, Venmo or credit card for payment. All checks are made payable to Monika Normand.
