Questions and Answers!
How long have you been in business?
2018 will be my 21st year of photographing weddings! I crossed the 1,000 wedding mark several years ago!
Who are the photographers at Jason Hudson Photography?
Jason Hudson, plus several very talented and hand-picked second shooters, if you choose to have one. But yes, I will personally be at your wedding!
Do you have backup equipment?
Oh yes. I bring at least two cameras with me, as well as multiple lenses and flashes.
Your pictures are modern and 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 DAYLIGHT bride and groom time on your wedding day!
Do you need a "shot list" like the wedding magazines say I do?
Family group lists are nice to have and it makes those pictures go much quicker. For the rest of the day, I enjoy capturing real moments as they happen!
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, or to decorate their house with. Engagement sessions typically last 60-90 minutes and I show around 50-60 final images.
What is a bridal session?
Once the dress is altered, we can schedule a bridal session, which is (usually 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 for your memories, too! Bridal sessions last 60-90 minutes and I typically show around 40-50 final images.
Can we show you our ideas from Pinterest?
Sure! But please know that it is illegal for me to 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 let me just do my thing!
How long until we get to see and download our engagement and bridal proofs?
About a week!
How long until we get to see our wedding proofs?
My goal is 1-2 weeks for the preview gallery and 2-4 weeks for digital delivery of all edited wedding day photos. This can be quicker in the off-season and longer during peak booking months.
Do you edit the wedding day pictures?
Yes! Every image you receive will be individually edited for the best lighting and color possible! Individual retouch requests such as blemish removal, tattoo removal, face swaps, background object removal, braces removal, etc. will be outsourced for a fee and quoted on a case by case basis.
Do we get digital copies of all our engagement, bridal and wedding pictures?
Yes! Every package includes a print release and a link to your digital download of high resolution photos edited images, plus a separate folder of around 20-30 of my favorite pictures that are artistically retouched and in a mixture of color and black & white. A permission form for personal use and printing is included, so that you can have prints or albums made anywhere you'd like. I can help you with suggestions on where to go for that!
How many pictures do we get from the wedding day?
It really all depends on how many photographers you select to have, how long you have us there, how many events took place, etc. Usually though you can guesstimate that I will deliver about 100 or more pictures per hour of shooting.
