Frequently Asked Questions
The following are questions I answer often. If you don't see your question, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
How long have you been doing wedding photography?
2019 is my 12th season of wedding photography. I pretty know everything there is to know about weddings and wedding photography.
WHat's so special about your photography?
My style spans what is natural, candid, fun, emotion-filled, and authentic. I love the details, the people, the music, the places, but mostly I love finding something special and unique to each couple. This helps me to capture authentic emotion in the midst of wedding commotion.
Do you carry liability insurance?
Yes. I can send a copy of this insurance to your venue if required.
how do you describe your photographic style?
I focus on an organic, fine-art, non-traditional photojournalism - nothing too staged or stiff. I enjoy using beautiful natural surroundings to create a fantastic atmosphere. I make it my goal to keep your day as stress-free as possible by being non-intrusive, (but still super friendly and engaged)!
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, unless there is an emergency in which case a comparable photographer will be provided. Per your photography contract, your wedding will be taken care of no matter what.
Do you have any reviews of your photography service?
Absolutely! View them here.
IF YOU’RE ALREADY BOOKED FOR OUR DAY, DO YOU HAVE AN ASSOCIATE TEAM?
After shooting hundreds and hundreds of weddings and turning away couples because I was already booked or I was out of their budget, I've decided it was time to add an associate program to Sharyn Frenkel Photography. I have carefully and hand-selected my team. They are trained by me, observing and shooting with me as second shooters. They have the same goals, processes, and vision to shoot with the same passion. They build relationships and love with my clients just the way that I do. I promise you are in good hands.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you to our event?
I always bring multiple layers of backup equipment including lenses, camera bodies, flash units, batteries etc.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Images are available to preview 8-12 weeks post-wedding, depending on the season.
In what format are the final proofs presented?
Proofs are offered in an online proofing gallery. A digital download code with high resolution photos in JPEG format will be provided as well.
How long can the couple keep their proofs?
Online proofing gallery will be available for 1 year. You have the rights to reproduce the files, create prints, post the photos online for personal (non-commercial) use. You will also receive a printing release with the digital code once downloaded.
How many final photos are delivered?
For a typical 8 hour wedding I'll deliver between 800-1000 (or more) photos.
For a 60 min engagement shoot I'll typically deliver 50-100 photos.
Do we provide meals for you on the day of?
Yes, 2 please! One for myself and the other for my second photographer. It’ll keep us going strong, getting those amazing images for you guys! We usually eat while the guests are eating, because most people don’t want their pictures taken with their mouths full.
How do we book you for our wedding day?
Please get in touch here. If I have your date available I would love to meet with you either via phone or over coffee (or wine)to see if we are a match. If you decide to book, I'll require 50% of your collection as a non-refundable deposit to hold your date. My booking occurs on a first-come/first-serve basis, so I cannot reserve your date until a deposit has been received. For your convenience, I can accept cash or checks. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the wedding date.
