Wedding Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge to photograph weddings?
But to give you a rough idea, on average my packages span from about $1,200 – $3,500. But I offer services that cater from the bride-on-a-budget to all out destination wedding extravaganzas! Contact me now to inquire about your own custom package today!
Where do you primarily photograph weddings?
However, outside of a certain range I have to consider your event as a “destination wedding”. And for more information on that, see the next question!
Do you photograph destination weddings?
Say the word and I’ll start packing my bags to travel to your exotic getaway wedding! However, travel fees may apply. Typically this is just travel to/from your location and lodging (if needed), and I’ll work with you to make sure this is an expense that stays as low as I can help it.
What is your style?
If you want a purely photojournalistic look for your wedding with absolutely no posed photos, I can do that. But if you want to get a nice portrait with grandma, I’m not going to look down my nose at you! I want to cover your day in a way that will provide images that make you happy!
Outside of that, I typically like to use a lot of color and tend to favor portrait (vertical) images over landscape (horizontal). I like my photographs to *pop* and spend a lot of time during the wedding and in post making sure each photo does just that!
What do you do with my photos after the wedding and what do I get when you’re done?
What you will receive depends on the options you select when building your wedding package. You or any of your friends & family can purchase prints and other merchandise with your photos quickly and easily from your proof gallery. Soon your photos will be printed by a professional printing house I have partnered with, and delivered right to your door!
If you opt for a digital download of all your photos, they will be delivered via email links which you can use to download everything right to your home computer’s desktop. With personal printing and sharing copyrights you can choose any printer you like to fulfill print orders, or simply post away on Facebook.
I’m just looking for engagement photos right now, is that OK?
Will you capture my proposal?
And before you ask, I am a veritable James Bond when it comes to snapping those photos without being too obtrusive. “Don’t mind me, I’m just some guy taking a few photos of these lovely flowers/birds/people who are not you.” As soon as you get down on your knee, I swing into action and catch that look of shock on her face so you can re-live it all over again! (Ladies, you are more than welcome to contact me about proposing to him too, it’s more typically been the other way around though!)
What other types of photo sessions do you offer besides engagement and wedding photography?
Day After, like it sounds, usually takes place on or about the day after your wedding. Frazzled nerves aside we can relax and capture some nice photos of you and your sweetie either in full wedding garb or something more casual.
Rock/Wreck the Dress is great for capturing some really fun and interesting photos after your wedding. You’ve spent maybe thousands of dollars on a dress you’re not intending to wear again and no longer care if it gets a little dirty! Let’s go to the beach or your favorite field of flowers! Heck, let’s go to the most gritty, industrial, urban area you can find! Sky’s the limit!
It may seem crazy to even think about your first anniversary if your wedding day isn’t even here yet, but if you’re the type to plan ahead, an Anniversary photo session can be a great gift to yourself. Squeeze back into your gown and tux and relive the happiest day of your life. Or show how far you’ve come in a year! Got a new furry friend or bouncing baby? Bring them along and make it a family affair!
Do you offer any additional services?
As you’ll see I cover everything from printing services to special effects, slide shows to albums and a little sprinkling of everything else in between. I could really go into a lot more detail about the various services, but it’s probably just easier to call or send an e-mail and I can answer any questions you may have.
Do you require a minimum amount of hours?
However, if you are looking to have a shorter wedding, or maybe skipping a formal reception, contact me and we can try to work something out.
What do you do when you’re not photographing weddings?
Believe it or not, I am a photographer who specializes in several other areas besides weddings. Some of my work includes commercial, portrait, headshot, family and pet photography. You can see examples of some of that in my portfolio.
The other wing of my business, the “Media” in Pete Labrozzi Media and Photography, covers graphic and web design, animation, video services and audio editing. A couple of words that don’t do much to describe the variety of the work!
When I’m not working, I’m usually doing a lot of the same out of personal taste. I enjoy landscape and travel photography, and am working on putting together a photography book from my travels in my ancestral country, Italy.
I am also an avid gamer, cyclist, skier and enjoy kicking back outside with my Kindle! One of my favorite pastimes is collecting passport stamps as I travel the globe. My wife and I celebrated our 8th anniversary this past year, we have a beautiful daughter Zoey, and a wonderful fuzzy child (read: dog) named Gus.
