Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve put together a list of questions that come up when meeting with couples and here are some of the common ones. If you have other questions, please feel free to email me at syphotodesign@gmail.com. I would also love to meet with you in person and grab some coffee and hear more about your upcoming wedding!

GENERAL QUESTIONS

  • What’s your wedding photography style?

    • My style can best be described as candid and artistic. When you look back at your wedding photos in the future, I want you to be able to remember and feel your wedding just the way it happened! I try my best to capture real emotion, love, and the little details that make it YOUR WEDDING. I try to make sure you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible with me as well as in front of the camera, in order to get those genuine looks and expressions. I also love to get creative, so i’ll make sure to take advantage of the surrounding locations, venue, people, lighting, and emotions to get you artistic photos that you can hang in your living room!

  • How long have you been shooting weddings?

    • I shot my first wedding in the fall of 2015. That fall, I shot a wedding in August, September, and October, and after that it took off and has been growing ever since! I couldn’t have asked for more amazing clients throughout my years of wedding photography!!

  • What is a “Second Day Bridal Shoot”?

    • A second day shoot is just what it sounds like—it’s another day in your wedding dress and suit, but with less stress, more time, perfect lighting, and your dream location! This shoot doesn’t have to be the day after your wedding. Some couples prefer two days after the wedding, after they come back from their honeymoon, or even half a year later—as long as I don’t have anything booked on the day, I’m very flexible with these! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS.

  • Who is your second photographer?

    • I have a few photographers that second-shoot with me! They all have a similar style to mine, and they are photographers that I know and/or trust. Based on their availability, I’ll only have a set photographer a month before your wedding date, and I won’t disclose their personal information.

LOCATIONS + TRAVEL

  • Where do you live?

    • I live in Sacramento, CA, but I spend an equal amount of time serving couples in the SF-Bay Area and Tahoe areas.

  • Do you charge extra for traveling outside of Sacramento?

    • Yes and No. I don’t charge anything extra for travel within most of the Bay Area, Tahoe area, Stockton, and Sacramento. Anything besides that, I’ll charge a very minimum fee just to cover traveling costs.

ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

  • Where can we take our engagement photos?

    • ANYWHERE! Literally anywhere. I don’t charge anything to travel within the Bay Area, Lake Tahoe, or Sacramento, and I don’t charge much at all to travel outside of that, so I love getting creative with new locations, and if you need help finding a spot, I’d love to help you chose one!

  • How long do engagement sessions last?

    • My average engagement sessions lasts about two to three hours.

  • Can I have one or two outfit changes for my engagement session?

    • Yes! You can have a few outfit changes. I would recommend having one more formal or “dressy” outfit, and one casual, fun outfit. I wouldn’t recommend more than two outfits!

  • How long will it take to receive our edited engagement photos?

    • Engagement photos will be ready and edited within 2-3 weeks.

POST WEDDING

  • How long does it take to get our edited wedding photos back?

    • You will receive your edited photos no later than three months after your wedding!

  • Can I get the un-edited (RAW) photos on a separate flash drive

    • I’m sorry, I only provide JPEG photos that have been post processed to my style, and do not give out the RAW photos.
