Q&A

How do WE BooK Shannon grant photography? 

After we chat about your wedding day dreams (and day of logistics), we’ll send over a custom quote to begin the booking process. Once we receive your signed contract and the retainer fee is paid, your date is officially reserved!

How many weddings do YOU photograph a year? 

Due to the custom nature of wedding photography, we limit our season to only 10 couples per year. This ensures that you’ll receive a great client experience and we can get to know you better, ensuring your images are a true reflection of your personalities.

DO YOU WORK WITH A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER? 

Since I started working weddings solo in ‘07, I’m very comfortable getting all the angles and moments that are important to you. At times when an extra set of eyes is helpful, my assistant will take photos. While I’m covering you walking up the aisle and your love’s reaction, she’s getting your cathedral veil from behind or your Mom wiping away a slow tear!

How many PHOTOS can WE expect? 

You will receive around 50 finished images per hour of wedding day coverage. By employing a quality over quantity approach, we can ensure your image collection retells the story of your day beautifully and you’re not overwhelmed with sifting through a million images.

WILL WE RECEIVE high resOLUTION files? 

Yes, each collection includes high res files delivered via download with rights to make prints. However, please know that the files aren’t the end-game. Your images deserve to see the light of day so whether you order archival pro prints through your gallery or get them made yourself, please do!

WHAT IS YOUR PRICING? 

Pricing for wedding collections varies based on the logistics of your event. The most popular is around $5500 and includes everything you may need. Contact us for a complimentary consultation and to receive a quote.

How can MY family & friends order prints? 

There are bound to be images they would love to have printed from your wedding day, so please, feel free to share your online gallery with them! They can order the same professional prints and more directly through the gallery.

What is THE photo turnaround time? 

Your final collection of edited images will be ready within 8 weeks. Rest assured that there will be sneak peeks in the meantime!

What kind of equipment do YOU use? 

The professional kind! Nikon DSLR bodies with an assortment of lenses and flashes for specific times of the day, along with backups.

What happens if YOU’RE sick? 

We’ll down some Dayquil and get to work because we know there are no sick days! If it’s something very serious and we can’t physically make it (ie: hospitalization), we have an amazing network of other pros who are willing to step in at a moment’s notice.

Do you have insurance? 

Sure do! If your venue needs it, let us know and we can have our people fax your people!
