What is a Print Release?

 A print release is a document that you can provide to your photographic lab when ordering prints. It essentially states that your photographer gives the lab permission to print photographs from the digital files for your own use.

Will you hold my wedding date? 

In order to officially book me for a particular event date, I will need a signed copy of my Wedding Photography Agreement and a retainer payment.

When I receive an inquiry, I first look on my calendar to see if the date is open. Then a few days before our scheduled consultation meeting, I check again and confirm my availability. I don’t play games and make up interested parties who “may” be looking to pressure you into booking. I will tell you, however, if you have a really popular booking date. 

I want to keep things fair for everyone and not show favoritism. Therefore, I operate on a first-come first-served basis. If you provide a signed agreement and retainer, we’re official.

How many photographs will we receive?

 Depending on the number of guests and the amount of activity taking place (not a lot of action takes place during a long sermon in church), I typically deliver an average of 100 corrected photos per hour of wedding coverage.

Items that may impact the number of photos include number of guests, traditions, type of venue (simple or elaborate), cultural traditions, wedding details, and/or a second photographer.

I’ve heard some Colorado locations require permits. Are they expensive? How does the permit process work?

 Yes, many locations require permits in Colorado. Often, hefty fines apply if you do not have the appropriate permits required for commercial photography. This applies to portrait, engagement, and wedding sessions.

I work with my clients to complete the permits to ensure compliance. Many times a certificate of insurance is required upon filing an application. The fees vary from free to several hundred dollars depending on the number of people in your group, number of hours, and the types of equipment that will be used.

Permits are used by city and government agencies to understand who will be filming in the area. The fees typically go toward the upkeep of the area.
