Will I have rights to the photos and am I able to print them?
Yes! You will receive a copyright print release document with your images. You may download, print, and share your photos however you wish. They are yours. However, if you choose to share anywhere online, you must give credit to "Holly Von Lanken Photography"
Will all the images be edited/ completed?
I wouldn't have it any other way. I enjoy the editing process. It allows me to put the finishing touches and style to your photos so that they bring the whole wedding story together.
I don't see many posed/ formal photos on your website. Do you still do those?
Absolutely! I always designate time during the wedding day to capture family portraits. Gotta keep mama happy :)
I already had a friend take my engagement photos. Can we get a discount if I opt out of an engagement session?
No. Your engagement session is complimentary in your wedding package. It's an opportunity for us to work together and get to know each other before your wedding date. I get the opportunity to see how the two of you interact with one another and we can work out any nerves so that you are extra comfortable on your wedding day! Think of it as a trial run.
Do you have back up equipment?
Of course! Back up cameras, back up lenses, back up flash, back up memory cards etc. Hopefully I won't need to use them, but I am packed and ready to go for any event. Holly Von Lanken Photography is also backed by the Professional Photographers of America.
Do you travel?
I LOVE to travel. If you're planning a destination wedding, count me in! We may even be able to work out a deal if its to somewhere tropical ;) I am based in Atlanta, Georgia and there is a small travel fee to any destination 30+ miles outside the perimeter of Atlanta. In other words, the first 60 miles round trip are on me.
How do I book my date?
The retainer fee of half the total amount and your signed contracted are needed in order to book your date.
What does "full day" of coverage mean?
Full day means that I arrive when you are almost finished with your hair and make up to get those last getting ready shots before you get your dress on and I leave when you do! This is usually about a 10 hour day.
Can I post my pictures to Facebook?
Sure thing! Just as long as you give photo credit per the COPYRIGHT document.
What should we wear to an engagement session?
What ever makes your feel like a million bucks. You want to look like you, but on a really really good day. I recommend 2-3 outfits. One casual. One dressy.
Should I bring props?
That's completely up to you. I'm good either way. If there's a something that you'd like to incorporate into your shoot because it's special to you and your love, then sure! But, I also really love the simplicity of a clean photo. The focus is completely on you.
What camera do you use?
I use all professional Nikon equipment.
How long will it take to get our photos back?
On average, it takes about month to receive your photos.
How many photos will I get?
approximately 50-75 photos per hour of coverage
