FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How far in advance should I make a reservation to secure my Wedding date?
Reservations are accepted up to 2 years in advance so its best to contact me right away to check my availability. I also accept a limited number of Weddings each year to maintain the highest quality possible in both photographs and the all around experience. I believe in not only providing memorable photographs, it is my joy to deliver an unforgettable experience.
2. Will Darryl J. be my Professional Photographer?
Is bacon AWESOME? Of course! I personally photograph each Wedding for my couples. I enjoy sharing in the moments of others and wouldn't miss yours for the world.
3. Do you have liability insurance?
Yes I do. In fact, your venue might already have my certificate of insurance on file. If not, I can provide you with a copy for them.
4. What equipment do you use and do you have back-ups?
PHOTOGRAPHY: I have a collection of high end professional grade Nikon lenses and DSLR cameras. I always keep back-ups. My Assistant keeps me well prepared.
DJ: I use the industries best. A full array of QSC K-Series speakers, Pioneer SX2 and an Apple MacBook. That's just the cake. Wait until you see the frosting.
5. I'm so ready to make you my Wedding Photographer. What's next?
It's all about the experience and what's an experience without being prepared. I'd like to invite you for a consultation to go over ideas and scheduling. It's very important to me that I know your ideas and provide you with mine as well. All couples are unique and your collection should reflect that. After we take care of the details, we'll secure your wedding date with a Wedding Photography Contract and a 50% deposit of the collection you select.
6. I'm having a Destination/Out of State Wedding. Do you travel?
My passport is ready and so am I. In fact I travel quite a bit for Weddings and Fashion Editorials, so its never a problem.
7. Do you have an Assistant?
Yes I do. My Assistant is professional, awesome and very sweet. They help keep us on track throughout the day and makes sure my equipment is always ready for the perfect moment.
8. When is the final payment due and what methods of payment do you accept?
Final payments are due prior to your Wedding day. Most couples satisfy the balance a week prior. Cash and all major credit cards are currently accepted. Unfortunately, checks are not accepted at this time.
9. If I wanted you to bring a second photographer, do you have one available?
Yes. My associate second photographer has undergone a mentor-ship with me personally. It's the closest thing I have to a clone LOL. A second shooter is an A La Carte option that we can add to your package.
10. I want your Photo Booth. Is there an attendant and do they set it up/break it down?
Awesome. Our Photo Booth is full service and has a professional Concierge. The Concierge takes care of everything before, during and after your coverage. As I mentioned, your experience is very important to me. We'll do all we can to ensure your day is fantastic and your guests have a blast.
11. How many photographs will I receive for my Wedding?
Great question, I never limit my clients and I don't stop capturing their special moments when I hit a magic number. You will experience an unlimited number of shots during your coverage. Typically for a 8 hour Collection, you will receive 700 - 1,000 high resolution unedited photographs (I'm one of the rare photographers confident enough to give unedited photographs). After your Wedding day, my work continues as I go back to my office and edit a compilation of about 200 beautifully light edited high resolution photographs for your final wedding collection. Your wedding collection of edited photographs will be hand picked to tell your story personally by Darryl J.
12. How many photographs will I receive for my Engagement session?
You will enjoy a compilation of up to 20 of the best gorgeous light edited high resolution photographs to share your once in a lifetime moment.
13. When will I receive my photographs?
Although, I ask for 60 days to complete all collections, I typically turn them around in less than 1 month after your special moment.
