Wedding Photography Frequently Asked Questions
• How long have you been shooting weddings?
We have been in business for over 6 years. Photographing weddings is primarily what we do at Prophoto by MK, and we absolutely LOVE it.
In past years we have photographed over 200 wedding celebrations, ranging from very intimate (as small as elopement of only 2 people) to multiple day events with over 300 guests.
We have worked at so many beautiful locations in and all around Philadelphia, that most likely YES, we’ve been at your venue before. But if not, again YES, we will be happy to visit the place to scout to best photo spots and just to get familiar with it prior to your wedding day.
Of course, we’d be happy to show you our recent work, from bride preparations all the way to the cake cutting!
On your wedding day we really are a “jack of all trades”. Most of the time we shoot in a contemporary style, combined with a photojournalism to catch those candid moments that everyone loves. However we will be there to help you with posing while capturing shots of family groups, and of course you’ll want some stunning portraits for your wedding album!
We use top of the line Canon and Nikon gear, as well as professional lighting equipment.
Yes, we will be glad to use your list of requested photos on the day of the wedding. If it’s in our power, we’ll make them happen! Of course this does not mean we stop there! We will be creating a lot of other beautiful photographs beyond your “required” ones as your wedding day unfolds.
If your wedding is more than an hour away from 19115 ZIP code, there could be a travel fee charge of $50/hour of travel. Destination weddings or weddings that would require us to stay overnight will be discussed directly with the couple and will be based on the individual situation.
We offer multiple wedding packages that vary by hours (6, 8, 10 etc.) and also to what is included with them. We’ll be happy to customize any option to fit your needs and wishes! Contact us today to request a copy of our wedding packages.
Engagement sessions are lots of fun! Yes, for most packages it is included. However, if you just want to see how we work, and how comfortable and happy we’ll make you feel during the session, you could book the engagement session separately with no strings attached to book the wedding.
Yes, we will be happy to provide you with a slideshow on the day of the wedding, lets talk about this option at your consultation!
Absolutely! You just need to select your favorite photographs (or you could leave it up to us!), and we’ll do everything else. Our album layouts are custom made based on your taste, and we offer a wide variety of covers (genuine leather, glass, photo cover, etc.).
All of our wedding photography packages include color-corrected and enhanced photographs, as well as minor retouching on close-up portraits (when needed).
It takes about 5-6 weeks to process your wedding photographs, and we’ll send you a link to the password-protected online gallery. Once you approve your proofs, we will put your full resolution, watermark-free wedding photos on a thumb drive and mail it to you, along with a print release.
• Will you be posting about our wedding on social media sites (Blogs, Facebook, Instagram, etc.)?
We love to rave about weddings! We will create a super awesome post on Facebook a day after your wedding, or even the same night! You’ll be able to tag all your friends dancing and having fun, and best of all you get to see your photos from your Big Day in no time! We also will put a blog post together with our favorite images from your wedding sometime shorty after as well.
Yes, to protect our clients, we have a contract to sign. It outlines our agreement, and could be referred to if any questions arise.
To reserve your wedding date we ask for a 20% retainer. It is due when you sign your contract. The rest of the balance is due either before or on the day of your wedding.
Yes, we are fully covered by liability insurance, and able add your venue in the contract if need be.
Yes, we always have back-up equipment! If for some unexpected emergency situation your photographer is unable to be at the wedding, we will provide you with another equally experienced photographer.
In our days of technology everyone has a camera, a phone camera or some other gadget. So we are aware that other people will be taking photos, and it is fine, as long as they don’t interfere with our work. However we do request that ProPhoto by MK is the only professional photographer at your event.
The contract that you sign will have all necessary questions to answer, so we can be fully prepared for your wedding day.
Congratulations on making it all the way to the bottom of this page! You have read some boring but important stuff. Good job! Since you spent this much time reading, we are pretty sure you should contact us about your wedding day, and we’ll have a nice chat!
