Photography Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the most common questions we get about wedding photography, family portraits and other photography services.
We never subcontract out our weddings. Most of the time we book only one wedding on any given day. Your photographer will be Edward Morgan, owner of Spring Hill Photography Service.
We use both Nikon and Sony digital cameras, Nikon and Sony lens, Nikon and a few other brands of flash systems for on camera and off camera flash.
Most of the time YES
for weddings we charge a flat $200 a hour for any extra hours of coverage.
For other photography projects the price will be based on the current project
This will depend on how many group shots you’d like.
For the most poplar 6 portraits, we suggest 20min.
The Bride, The Groom, The Bride and Groom together
The Bridal Party, The Bride’s immediate family
The Groom’s immediate family
You should expect each group shot on average to take around 3 minutes each so if you want 30 different group shots then you need to set aside an hour and a half just for the 30 group shots.
We will take many bride and groom photos and they can take up to 45 minutes
Most churches do have some kind of rule that they want the photographer to abide by. We have been doing this a long time and over the years i think we have run into just about every church rule around.
We are well equipped to handle any church regulations that need to be followed. We use low light lens and can shoot from the back of the church with no problem. We can use flash or not use flash as needed.
Many churches (and other venues) have set time restrictions.
Unfortunately this may cut into to the time for taking the in church formal photos.
If your venue has a time restriction please let us know so we can work with you to make other arrangements for taking the photos that the time will not allow.
If the time is short we suggest that we take all the portraits for the bride then bride and groom first before moving on the the large group shots.
Most weddings are booked with a non refundable 50% retainer to hold your wedding date with us.
The balance amount is due one week before the wedding date. Our small one hour wedding packages are due in full at the time of booking.
We can accept cash, checks, Visa, Master Card and Paypal
This will depend on the amount of time included in the wedding package you have and on the wedding day events. If the bride and groom are having a lot of fun and dancing then we will take more photo then if the wedding has no dancing.
Most larger weddings of 5 to 6 hours we shoot from 800 to 1200 images.
Many photos we take are what we call background images. A background image is a image we may use as the canvas background on one of your wedding album pages we design.
We also many times shoot two or three of the same shot so we can pick the best one so everyone looks their best.
We maintain a professional appearance at your wedding.
Black or light brown pants and white or black shirts. For beach weddings in the hot summer months we may dress in dress shorts it can be 100 degrees or more out on the beach.
Travel fees will be different from location to location and we love to travel. Please Call for a price quote. If its more then a few hours driving time we will drive over or fly over the day before and spend the night in a hotel and then be fresh for your wedding day. We will then stay the night on the wedding day and drive back or fly back the day after the wedding.
