FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

 

I live in Pleasant Grove, Utah. I love to travel and I travel often for shoots and weddings, both out-of-state and internationally. So if you live far, don’t fret. Jot me a line about you and your session/wedding so we can chat more details. PS. I am always smitten with destination weddings.

ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL?

 

Yes! I travel out-of-state or internationally to 1/5th of my weddings. And I have a soft spot for destination weddings! I love to travel and see new places, and it is the biggest honor and compliment to travel for a bride and groom.

DO WE ARRANGE YOUR TRAVEL/ACCOMMODATIONS?

 

No, you have enough on your plate already. I will arrange my travel/accommodations. Just contact me with your wedding location and (at least) a tentative wedding date; I’ll reply back with a quote after researching the very best deals. Please note that travel fees will apply to sessions and weddings beyond about an hour’s drive.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

 

Easy as pie. To book me for your wedding, jot me a quick memo with your wedding date so we can check availability. After that, a $500 deposit and signed service agreement is required to officially book the day. For a session, we’ll find a date that works best, and a $100 deposit & signed service agreement will seal the deal.

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK/WHEN IS OUR PAYMENT DUE?

 

For an engagement or portrait session, the final payment is due on the session date, before we start shooting. For weddings, the final payment is due two weeks prior to the wedding date or one month prior for international/destination weddings. You can choose to make smaller payments leading up to your wedding day or pay it all in one sum when it’s due (whatever creates less headache for you).

WHAT ARE OUR OPTIONS FOR PAYMENT?

 

You can pay by check or by card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB). You can also pay using PayPal or Venmo.

DO YOU WORK WITH BRIDES ON A BUDGET?

 

Of course! I have been a bride myself and I know how expensive weddings can get. I have a variety of wedding packages, created to compliment a variety of financial situations. But in the end, it’s not about the money. You are making a quality investment for the biggest day of your life. I cherish that fact, and respect it by spending hours in creating your images and/or video for you to always have and love. Long after the food is eaten and the venue is packed up, your wedding photos and video will still be there, so that you can re-live this amazing day over and over. Forever and ever.

HOW DO YOU DELIVER THE EDITED PHOTOS OR VIDEO(S)?

 

I deliver all of your edited images through a personalized online gallery. From the gallery, you’ll be able to download and save all of your edited images. I highly recommend you back them up after downloading, just to dot your I’s and cross your T’s. I can also provide images on flash drive. Depending on your video package, you will receive a flash drive of your digital video file + DVD(s)/blu-rays with a custom menu.

CAN WE PRINT OUR IMAGES, OR DO WE PRINT THROUGH YOU?

 

Depending on the type of session (ie., engagements, wedding, portraits), you may receive the digital files to your edited images & a personal print release with your photography session. This means that should you choose to print on your own, you are welcome to. If you choose to print on your own, though, I do have a list of suggested places to print. You have invested in beautiful professional photos, so you might as well print them where they will come out looking beautiful and professional! And keep in mind that with your photo session, I often include print credit, which you can use on anything from canvas wraps to leather albums. I print through an amazing professional photo lab that will make your images look (and stay looking!) beautiful and wonderful for years and years. And years and years.

DO YOU HAVE WEDDING PHOTO & VIDEO (COMBO) PACKAGES?

 

Heck yes, we have combo wedding packages! In fact, you will save major mula (10% off to be exact) by booking BP Film & Photo for both wedding photography and videography. All-inclusive photo & video packages start at only $5,000–or you can choose to hire on photo or video a-la-cart, by the hour. Please contact me for a full list of options.

IF WE HIRE YOU FOR BOTH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY, HOW DOES THAT WORK?

 

Primarily, it will save you money, time, and headache in booking two separate vendors. If you hire me for your wedding, there will be at least two shooters, one for photo and one for video. More likely, there will be 3-5 shooters, however. I have a team of photographers and videographers who work for BP Film & Photo on wedding gigs and are already experienced in our style and operations.

DO YOU OFFER RAW FOOTAGE WITH WEDDING VIDEOS?

 

Yes, I offer two options for raw footage. The first is a bloopers/deleted scenes video you can add onto your package. This is always a super fun, upbeat video with all the best extra shots edited together. I also offer a raw footage video, where I edit all of your raw footage into one giant video. Some videographers will just give you a flash drive with all your video clips as separate files. I’ve learned, however, that it’s annoying for my couples to click each clip at a time to watch through all the raw footage! Hence why I edit all the footage together into one raw footage video, to easily see everything together. This raw footage video is less polished than the bloopers video and includes all raw footage. Either or both of these options can be added to your wedding videography package for an additional cost (cost varies depending on the length of your wedding).
