Answer
 

How long have you been a photographer?

 

I started when I was 14, shot my first wedding at 18 and now I’m 22 - so almost a decade!

 

How many images do you include?

 

Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives.

 

What is your turnaround time?

 

For sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and 5 weeks or less for weddings. I try to get the images delivered to you as soon as possible, while also taking the time to care for each image.

 

Do you give RAW unedited images?

 

No, as I believe that editing is half the magic that goes into images and without this huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over to you.

 

How do payment schedules work?

 

I require a 50% retainer to secure the date of your session or wedding. For sessions the other remaining 50% is to be paid at least one day prior to the session. For weddings the remaining 50% is to be paid one month prior to the date of your wedding.

 

What do we wear?

 

I have a “What to Wear” guide that covers everything!

 

What happens if you can’t make it to our wedding?

 

If unfortunately this happens, as it would only happen if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc) but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.

 

What if there’s bad weather?

 

I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot and I can reschedule (or ruin my gear), then we totally will!

 

Do you photograph kids?

 

I don’t anymore, unless it’s for couples who I’ve shot in the past. I can help you out with recommendations if you need! I do love shooting maternity though!

 

Do you offer discounts?

 

Nope.

 

What about design?

Every company or individual’s design needs are TOTALLY different. I quote all of my design work based on what you’re looking for and what you need specifically. If you’d like to see samples of my work please shoot me an email with all of the fine details! (emilymsavagedesign@gmail.com)
