Booking Procedures (Wedding Photos)

Tuesday, December 08, 2009 Posted in Denver Wedding Photography

One of the hardest parts of this job is making sure that we keep our booking procedures fair for everyone.  Some photographers , if they have two couples for a date will pick or take the wedding with the higher dollar amount or better venue.  We don’t ever want to play favorites or get in uncomfortable situations for anyone.  We will never call a client  and tell them someone is looking at their date.  We don’t want to pressure anyone, we want you to get the photographer that is the best fit for you and your wedding.  The reason I post this is sometimes our policy of no pressure and first come first serve isn’t always fair, but its the closest answer we have for two people wanting the same date.

 

Things we have done to help make it fair.  If you ask or call we will tell if you someone else is looking at a date.  Again you can ask, but we will never call and pressure you.

Here is an instance were we feel bad, but there is no way around the problem.

  • Couple 1 calls a month ahead and sets a date to come into the studio.  They choose a Saturday.
  • Three days before the Saturday meeting another Couple II inquires for the same date and makes an appointment for Friday.
  • Couple II goes home and decides they want to book.  They call the morning of Saturday with a deposit.

You wouldn’t think things like this happen very often, but Murphy’s law dictates that it actually happens quit often with every possible set of circumstances.  The best advice, I can give is.  If you are meeting with a bunch of photographers and are not sure which one to go with don’t worry about this , but if you have gone through websites and blogs and you know this is the vendor for you don’t wait.  This advice goes for Wedding Planners, DJ, Cinematographers.  The talented vendors in colorado book up fast.

  • Mike Novelli Great post! I hate when that happens and you don't know what's the 'fair' thing to do. I liked reading your perspective :) 01.01.10, 08:05PM

Wedding Photographer Grant Humphreys Mansion

Tuesday, December 01, 2009 Posted in Denver Wedding Photography

Well the votes are in as you can see below.  I am surprised that only one photographer voted correctly.  The shot has some fill flash added to help brake up the shadows and give detail to the jacket and ground.  The main light was the sun which you can even see in the reflection above the door.

 

Correct answer is: Available Light and Strobe

Baby Portraits Colorado

Tuesday, November 24, 2009 Posted in Denver Wedding Photography

Brian and Allison were blessed with baby Jackson on October 18th. Jackson was born at 1:18 am he was 6.6 pounds. We were able to go to the hospital about 12 hours after he was born to take a few photos. We thought we would share a few of the baby portraits that we loved. Congratulations Brian and Allison, we never thought we would be taking these photos when we took your engagement photo’s 5 years ago. Thank you for your friendship.

  • Lindsay How freakin precious!!! Makes me want to have babies and have andy and angie take photos of me, my husband and my babies. 11.24.09, 06:09PM
  • Klaus Noergaard Awesome Shots. I just love them, but I dont understand why he had to have the cap on... Picture 8, the one with the baby in the foreground, is really good but the cap does not fit in when she has her robe on. Well, if you never see this guy without a hat, then it migth be okay. Am I wrong? 11.25.09, 02:55AM
  • andy Klaus, they had been in labor for 20 hours or so. They only had a few hours of sleep. If they had been formal and not lifestyle type photographs the hat would have been a problem. Its very common to see him wearing a hat. 11.25.09, 04:44AM

Snowy Wedding Photography in Colorado

Wednesday, November 18, 2009 Posted in Denver Wedding Photography

We  had a wedding this last Saturday with an adorable couple here in Colorado at Arrowhead Golf Course.  If you aren’t familiar with it, it is a beautiful venue with lots of red rocks, water, trees and wildlife.  Megan is a friend of another bride whose wedding we did at the same venue last year so we knew we were going to love this couple!  They have a unique story in that they have known each other since they were very young.  They chose to have their wedding in November for personal reasons and knew there would be a chance of snow.  However they didn’t expect an entire snow storm and neither did we!  Luckily we were able to do the bride and groom pictures before the ceremony before the heavy snow fall came.  When we headed back to meet up with their bridal party the weather quickly changed!  The groom’s cousin (Tina) took this photo of us taking pictures with the frozen group and the bride sent it over to us this afternoon.  I thought we would share it because it shows exactly what we do sometimes here in Colorado for our wedding photography  If you look past the wedding party you will even see some deer who didn’t understand what the problem was!

 

We recently did a post on the testimonials from some of our clients  and so I thought I would share this one as well!

Thank you Robert and Megan;  we had a great time, even in the cold!

 

“Hi Andy and Angie!
 
I hope that your week is going well!
 
Rob and I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you on Saturday! With all the chaos that went on that day, I have to admit that my favorite part was getting to spend some quality time with you two in the snow! It was the only part of the day that I actually felt alone with Robert. You two really have a great chemistry and you made me feel so special! I will remember it for the rest of my life. Thank you so much!

 
Talk to you later!
 
Meg”

  • andy We couldn't really do much but wipe them down after we came inside. I could hardly see the viewfinder, and the back was fogged up. 11.19.09, 01:18PM
