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, Jason Hudson will personally be at your wedding!
Do you have backup equipment?
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 that time 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, and 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?
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 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.
Do we get digital copies of all our engagement, bridal and wedding pictures?
Yes! I always include a free digital download of edited (lighting and color) photographs, plus a separate folder of around 10-20 of my favorite pictures that are artistically retouched. 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 that.
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 100-150 pictures per hour of shooting.
