Frequently Asked Questions
What is Love Me Do Photography, and why are there multiple photographers?
We are a collaborative of three individual photographers. Each of us have spent years working on our own in photography, while sharing resources. We have a common field of interest and photographic taste in style and aesthetic. Thus, we formed Love Me Do Photography! Since there are three of us, we allow you to choose which one you would like to have photograph your wedding, based on your personal tastes and our different styles of shooting.
Why do you photograph weddings?
Weddings are one of the most important days in our clients’ lives. And Photographs keep memories alive forever. We photograph weddings not only because it's a lot of fun to hang out with couples all dressed up and ready to party, but also because we believe it is important to capture those special moments in their lives. Afterwards we get to give couples images that they will look at and share with their families and friends for the rest of their lives!
How do you define your style as a wedding photographer?
Our style draws from traditional training and classic aesthetics. All of us shoot high quality work with a photojournalistic approach and an emphasis on creative portraiture. We do this with an aesthetic that combines vintage, feminine, and classic styles. We stray away from cliché or overused poses and feel each individual is beautiful in their own way. We also let the day unfold naturally and document to course of events as they happen organically.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We use the latest professional digital equipment, which includes Canon Digital SLR cameras with professional grade lenses. We also provide additional flashes and external lighting when necessary. We carry backups of all our equipment in the event of any unexpected malfunction.
How do we secure a date?
Once you confirm your date with us, a signed contract and a retainer will hold the date for you. The remaining balance will be due 30 days prior to your wedding date.
What happens after we book you?
We like to offer the care and consideration that each of our clients deserve. At any point between now and your wedding date, if we are needed to answer any questions or provide suggestions or advice, we are open to any form of communication. We can provide suggestions for photography locations for your wedding day based on your location and aesthetic. We will work with you and your vendors to provide everyone a detailed description and schedule of your wedding day, along with take note of any specific photographic requests you may have for your wedding. We do this so that we can be fully prepared for every detail of the day. We are also happy to help out with any vendor recommendations you may need.
What products and serviced do you offer?
Just like your wedding day, we like to customize your service so you get just what you want. We are always keeping an eye out for the latest products and books to offer you. We offer an array of customizable a la carte items such as albums and engagement shoots. If there's anything you'd like us to look into for your wedding, let us know. We're also open to new ideas! We also provide combination packages which provide discounts if you would like to order multiple items.
Why are the products and services offered a la carte?
Just like your wedding day, we like to customize your service so you get just what you want.
What is the private website that will show our images and how can we order prints?
All the images from your wedding will be uploaded to a private website so you and your guests will be able to view them online. This will allow you to share all your wedding images with friends and family, where they can view and order prints at their own leisure.
How long are you photographing for on the wedding day?
We have packages that begin at 8-9 hours, but you may add on any additional hours if they are needed for your wedding day. This amount of time usually starts while the Bride is getting ready, right before putting on the dress, and extends until after the last item of the night is performed (usually the cake cutting). Before we leave we always make sure check in with you. We also want to say our goodbyes and congratulate you on a wedding well done!
Do you offer destination weddings?
Yes! We love to travel and can work with you on your destination wedding to provide you with the best coverage on your big day.
Do you retouch the images?
Yes. Every image from your wedding is processed according to the following: color balance, density, saturation, and optimized composition. In addition, our favorite images from your wedding are further retouched to present your memories in the most beautiful way possible. If you have an extra special request for retouching, just let us know and we can customize a quote depending on the scale of project involved.
