Wedding FAQ Page
The day your eyes met. The day you kissed. The day they made you laugh harder than you ever have in your life. The day you undoubtably knew they would be your first, your last, your everything. The day you say I do. Each day more unforgettable than the last. Cali | York Photography understands and your day is safe in our hands.
How many pictures are included in our wedding package?
For full day event photography you can expect approximately 50-60 images per hour. The pictures will be a series of images in a flowing sequence of your day's events. Posed portraits as well as a ton of candids will provide you with a full view of your wedding day from every angle. Not a moment is missed.
Will you "retouch" our images?
Yes and no. 20 plus years of photography has enabled me the ability to capture an image precisely the way I intend to. Not every image will need photoshop. I pride my work on capturing the authenticity of the moments keenly. With attention to detail, emotional and raw journalistic delivery. All images are reviewed and corrected for color, framing, focus and lighting. The images that are duplicate or otherwise "oops" shots are discarded. My creative discretion is the only deciding factor on which images best reflect the experience. My goal is to allow you to relive your wedding day in vivid HD. Trust me.
We LOVE black and white photography! Will our gallery include them?
Absolutely! Most photographers charge extra for this. I, however, see it as given. What I do most times is take a frame where two exposures are exactly the same and make one black and white. I typically will make one major moment a black and white image resulting in a whole black and white subset collection. All while maintaining the vibrant color collection we love.
How soon after the ceremony do we see our pictures?
Minimum processing time for any wedding is 2 weeks. At two weeks you are invited to preview your images in an online proofing gallery and choose which to print. This is our opportunity to be creative!! My freestyle approach to creative design considers your unique wedding and makes everything specifically for you! The prints you select for your home or personal gifts and what should not go in to your album is chosen at this time.
Is videography included in our package?
Only Legacy and Traditional Collections include videography. I record several short clips that are later edited into a montage of highlight moments. Video rates for half day and shorter events are charged $600 per hour.
Will you travel to our destination wedding?
Absolutely! Booking Cali | York Photography for your wedding for any location is easy. Destination wedding photography rates vary by location. Package rates are added to travel cost for your total. Done and done. I operate out of NYC and travel where my clients need me.
Who are your partners for prints and albums?
When I am not producing prints personally with my Professional Epson 3880 printer and mounting, matting and framing your prints by hand, I call on Adoramapix. Adoramapix is NYC's premiere custom print lab with the best color replication record to date. Bound photo books with leather or linen covers and lay flat pages, calendars and more. K&M Camera provides in-house print supplies and rental equipment.
Adorama, their parent store is also my go-to place for the albums I assemble as well as all my lighting and Pro support and instruction. Art materials used for your albums and decorative mats are sourced from everywhere. Paper Source, Blick, your closet, the venue...everywhere!!
We have a huge family, where can my family and friends see my pictures?
You will be provided with a unique web address and passcode for your wedding gallery. The password will be generated by me and shared with the paying client. Most times this is the bride and groom, other times it is the parents. I provide passwords to only one set of people to then be distributed by the family at their discretion. Throughout the event I instruct guests to contact the family for images of the event. Once you receive your gallery for reviewing, this is your opportunity to share your images with family and friends.
