General Questions

 

Q. Will I receive all the images taken at my session or event?

A. No, you will not but this is a good thing! Images are carefully selected so you can enjoy your final gallery. We eliminate duplicates, very unfocused or blurry images, and unflattering shots captured during those candid moments. We take LOTS of images in order to capture and create the ones we feel our clients will love the most. We spend the time looking through all of them so our clients don't have to. Clients receive the average amount and sometimes more!

 

Q. Can I view a full wedding gallery from start to finish?

A. Yes, absolutely! Photographers love to post their best work but consistency is also very important. We have lots of examples from each wedding on our website but love sharing full galleries as well. We want our clients to feel comfortable and excited when they book us for their big day. Let us know and we can send you a sample gallery right away. 

Our photography consists of bright, colorful images, as clients will see in our work! We also love taking a variety of shots (detail, close-ups, portrait, candid, and oh my goodness, we LOVE landscape photography. We strive to deliver images our clients look forward to sharing and decorating their home with. 

 

Q. How many images will I receive?

A. On average clients will receive 50-70 edited high resolution images for a one hr session. For weddings, clients receive 80-120 images per hr of coverage. Please check out packages to learn more about how many images are included. Once again, this is simply an average and most of the time clients receive more than less or sometimes much more than the average. 

 

Q. How are images edited? And how are they delivered?

A. Images are taken in RAW format and then edited using professional editing software. We use Lightroom and Photoshop to adjust the colors, crop, and sometimes remove unwanted objects. Final images are then exported in Jpeg format which is perfect for media sharing and very large prints & wall decor. Images are delivered through a personalized online gallery (We use Pixiset!) and a USB is mailed as well for longer photoshoots and all weddings. 

 

Q. Is a deposit required upon booking? Can I cancel at anytime?

A. Portrait sessions (family, solo, engagement, maternity...) do not require a deposit; however, if a client does cancel and would like to reschedule then a deposit may be requested for the new date and time slot.

 

For Weddings, a deposit is ALWAYS required to officially secure the date and time frame. If a couple has already booked their wedding venue and are confident the date will not change then I recommend placing a deposit right away. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable to another individual or to a different date. Some dates are in high demand so when a deposit is placed I must turn away other potential client which is why deposits are non-refundable.  

 

Wedding Questions

Q. How do we book Charming Colour Photography for our wedding?

A. Contact us today by filling out the "contact section" on our website, call or text us at 619.669.8620, or email us at charmingcolourphoto@yahoo.com. Please include your first name, date and time frame of wedding, location of wedding venue, and how many hours of coverage you are seeking. If you see a package above that works perfectly for your special day let me know. We will respond within 24 hours or sooner. If you do not hear from us please try again. Rarely do emails get sent to spam/trash but it can happen! Once we contact you please let us know if you would like to set up a meeting in person or over the phone. We work with clients all the time who live out-of-state so this optional. Communication and paperwork can take place via email if this is easiest for the client. Then most importantly let us know soon if you are interested and we will put together a contract for you right away. 

 

Q. What is required upon booking?

A. A contract and deposit is ALWAYS required upon booking for all weddings. A contract is often emailed to the client if they are interested or a copy is brought in person for meetings. All pages must be signed and dated and returned with the deposit (usually 15% of the total rate). Then the remaining balance is due the day of the wedding/event. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable to another individual or to a different date. Make sure the date and time frame are accurate upon booking. If you have any questions please let us know before you sign your life away, haha ;). Don't worry, most photography contracts are similar and are meant to protect both the photographer and client. 

 

Q. What can I expect after booking?

A. After receiving a client's contract and deposit we send them a short questionnaire to fill out and return. Normally this does not get returned to us until we get closer to the wedding date. Via email is perfect! On the questionnaire we ask questions which help us prepare better for the event.

 

From the time of booking we are here for our clients and offer as much guidance as we can. We also work well with coordinators and other vendors and will communicate with them if necessary. 

 

Q. Have you photographed at our venue before?

A. We have captured many weddings all over San Diego and as far as LA so there is a great possibility we have captured a wedding at your venue before! If not, don't worry, finding beautiful spots to photograph is our expertise, we do it all the time. We also research new venues beforehand so we are better prepared!

 

Q. What can I expect the day of the wedding/event?

A. One photographer (ME! Susan Otto-Kelly) will arrive on time to the first location you listed on your contract. This may be the venue, hotel, or perhaps your home. You simply provide all locations I will be traveling to for your wedding and I normally arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the start time.

 

If you booked video as well then 1 photographer and 1 videographer will be present for your wedding. We do not bring an assistant unless we feel it is necessary. 

Throughout the day we provide guidance and direction for poses and candid shots. We want to help your wedding go as smooth and stress free as possible so we are here to help every step of the way and to make everyone feel comfortable.
