TESTIMONIALS FROM CLIENTS:
Fantastic job yesterday Edgar! You made everyone feel really comfortable with your professionalism and we loved the way you flew under the radar capturing all of those great moments.- BRENT HOUSTON, Wedding photographer and client.
Edgar is an artist in his own right, capturing multiple art shows that I have organized over the years- his photography captured in itself is truly a work of art. – DANIEL BURTON-Artist
Here are some answers to commonly asked questions about my work.
1-Why should we choose you?
We are passionate about delivering exactly what you want and ensure that we have a professional but fun experience while shooting.
Our job is to give you a great experience no matter what you require from us. One that you will remember with photo’s you will always cherish. I strongly believe that when hiring a professional photographer you are hiring not just the photographic ability but also the personality that comes with it. That personality can make or break your photographic session even if the photographer is proficient. We think we excel in both aspects!
2-A Contract: Do we need one?
You should definitely demand a contract when hiring a photographer. It serves as protection for all involved. You get the full information of the services provided, the pricing, all the details, etc. Please don’t hire someone without this in hand. It’s for your own protection.
3-Are you going to take the pictures yourself?
Yes. I am the owner and primary photographer. You are dealing directly with me, and only me! I will be there every step of the way! When a second photographer is required, I can discuss this addition with the you (client).
4-Do you offer photography gift certificates?
Yes, absolutely! They make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, new births, valentines gifts, holiday gifts, and many other special occasions. You can purchase a session package or dollar amounts to be used for sessions or print products. There is nothing better to remember a special occasion than a custom photography session.
5-When will I receive my photos?
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your session, weddings usually 5-10 weeks. I will deliver a custom USB stick or CD complete with the edited photos. Pictures will be professionally edited, color corrected (if needed), some offered in black & white and all in high resolution. I will usually post a sneak peek photo of the session on my website and/or Facebook page within a few days of your session. You will receive a signed release for all of the photos on the USB stick/CD. This allows you the freedom to have the pictures from the day of the shoot, with corrections made, to make prints from anywhere.
6-Do you only offer the photos on USB or do you offer prints?
The price listed includes the price of all of the photos on USB or CD, if you are interested in having prints made I am happy to help you with that. I do order prints from outside professional printers. If you are interested in ordering prints we can discuss sizes and prices that work best for you.
7-Could we meet before I book you?
Absolutely, we actually prefer to meet our potential clients before. We’d love to chat over coffee, show you our beautiful portfolio and discuss more of the details of your session/wedding. Our personalities are such a big part of what makes our sessions go so well. Just contact us and we will schedule a consultation with you. If you live too far away from our coverage area, we could contact via Skype or by phone.
8-What is the purpose of an engagement shoot?
Engagement shoots are a celebration of one of the happiest days of your life, the day you decided to take the big step towards marriage and that can be immortalized in pictures. It also lets us get to know you before the wedding. It’s definitely a great way to start building a relationship. Also it gives you an opportunity to practice being in front of the camera and learning some key tricks before the wedding day. Finally, you can use the engagement photos for the wedding guest book, invitations and even thank you cards.
9-My family loves to communicate in their mother language. Do you speak any other languages?
I’m fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese and can speak conversational French and Italian.
10-Will you travel outside of your area to shoot a photography session?
Yes. I am willing to travel to any destination, including international travel.
I hope that my FAQ page has helped to answer some of your questions. Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to answer any other questions that you might have or set up a time that we could meet personally to discuss your needs.
