Questions and Answers!
How long have you been in business?
For 20 years now! Hudson Photography Inc. aka "Jason Hudson Photography" was established in 1997!
How many wedding have you photographed?
Over 1,000 weddings! That makes me one of Arkansas's leading experts on wedding photography, no doubt!
Who are the photographers at Hudson Photography?
Jason Hudson, plus at team of very talented and hand-picked second shooters, if you choose to have one.
Do you have backup equipment?
Yes. I bring at least two cameras with me, as well as multiple lenses and flashes.
Can we show you our ideas from Pinterest?
Please know that it is illegal for me to exactly copy another photographer's work, and you hired me for my own unique photography style. I promise your pictures will be much better if you just let me "do my thing!"
Your work is non-traditional. Do you do those "look at the camera" pictures too?
Yes, definitely. I believe it's still important to document who was there within your family and bridal party. And even more important is portrait time with the bride & groom. Don't forget to schedule in bride and groom time on your wedding day!
Do you need a "shot list" like the wedding magazines say I do?
Nope! I actually would rather capture real moments your wedding day as they happen! (Family group lists are nice to have though and makes that time go quicker)!
What is an engagement session?
Months before the wedding, the bride and groom are photographed in street clothes at a location of your choice. Some couples use these pictures for Save the Date cards, invitations, programs, and to decorate their house with. Engagement sessions typically last 60-90 minutes and I show around 50-75 final images.
What is a bridal session?
Once the dress is altered, I can schedule a bridal session, which is just the bride in her dress at the location of her choice. It's often common (here in the south anyways), to display a bridal portrait at the reception. And they are just pretty to have! Bridal sessions last 60-90 minutes and I typically show around 50 final images.
How long until we get to see our engagement and bridal proofs?
Usually 1-2 weeks!
How long until we get to see our wedding proofs?
My goal is 1-2 weeks for the preview gallery, 6-8 weeks for online wedding proofing and digital file delivery. These times are minimums only. They can be slightly longer during peak wedding months.
Do we get digital copies of all our wedding pictures?
Yes! All of my packages include a free digital download of edited (lighting and color) proofs from the wedding day, plus a separate folder of around 20 fully artistically retouched wedding favorites! A permission form for personal use and printing is included!
How many pictures do we get from the wedding day?
Anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand (!) pictures, but that all depends on how many photographers you select to have, how long you have us there, how many events took place, etc. Usually you can guesstimate that I will deliver about 100 pictures per hour of shooting.
