Q: "What are your prices?"
A: I start my wedding packages at $3,000. If you would like a detail overview of my packages please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q:"What do your wedding photography packages include?"
A:All of my wedding photography packages include an engagement session, some type of book, and high resolution professionally edited digital photos which I send through "We Transfer". Other available options are wedding albums, prints, thank you cards, gallery wraps, metallic prints and more. Feel free to ask for more details or challenge me to make something new. I love a challenge.
Q: “Do you deliver every image you shoot?”
A: No I do not. I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because I shoot with low apertures, sometimes I take a few extra shots to make sure I have the perfect focus. I don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so I spend hours doing that on my end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. I might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure I have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With my expertise in processing hundreds of thousand of images each year, I may eliminate ones that I feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.
Q: “Do you guys do destination weddings? What additional fees are associated with destination weddings?”
A: While Robert Madrid Photography is based out of West Palm Beach, Florida, I serve clients all around the world. My destination wedding photography packages is simply my standard packages plus the cost of travel and reasonable accommodations if necessary. There is no cost for traveling between Jupiter to Miami, Florida. Email email@example.com for details.
Q: “Can I see a full event from start to finish?”
A: Of course you may! I pride myself on the consistency of my work. I understand all photographers put up their best shots from each wedding on their websites so it’s hard to determine how well he or she will perform on the wedding day. That is why I encourage all of our potential clients to view full events from all photographers they meet with to see how well the photographer performs throughout the day.
Q: “Do you touch up all the images in our image download?”
A: Yes I do. Every image I deliver is post produced with my unique style of basic post production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections (blah blah blah). This process is extremely important to me. The retouching process can take up too 1 week to 6 six weeks. I know it sounds crazy, but it is a huge process I will not rush.
Q: "Why do you offer online proofs even though you have given us the high resolution photos?"
A: I get asked this question all the time, and it's a good one to ask. The short answer is, professional quality prints (it's that simple).
The long answer is, even though I have given you the high resolution photos, I can not guarantee the quality of the prints. There are so many places that can easily make prints at such cheap prices, but with that most of these places cut corners which greatly affects you.
Another reason why I offer online proofing is for family and friends. This will give them a way to view and order prints online without having to come and bother you with requests.
Personally, this year I will be making more of an effort on the importance of prints. We all know we live in a digital age where we can place our photos on our smartphones, Facebook, Instagram, making it easier to share. But to touch and hold prints is a completely different experience. By holding onto a print, you must stop and think about what you are looking at and remember that moment.
