frequently asked questions.
Do you travel?
Yes! We are based in Nashville, Tennessee but are more than willing to travel for weddings and even engagements! We actually love it when our couples ask us to photograph or film them in a location that means something special to them!
We do charge for any airfare and locations over 60 miles away. Please contact me for more information!
How far in advance do I need to book?
The earlier the better for everyone! While I prefer to book weddings at least 6 months in advance and engagements a month in advance, I am flexible as long as your requested date is available. Reach out ASAP to make sure your day is still open!
Do you deliver digital files?
For sessions, we let our clients choose their favorite images from a gallery. For weddings, we give our clients all the best files. Anything less would be disappointing for you and for us! We want to you to enjoy all your images, which is why we deliver our clients' digital files quickly and easily via an online gallery.
You will have the ability to print, share, and download your images as much as you want until the album expires (after 60 days).
We also deliver our images always in high resolution with no watermark. We believe in freely sharing our work because that is what we would want if we were in your shoes!
What is your shooting style?
We love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when we will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything on schedule. There will also be moments when we fade into the background to allow the day to unfold naturally. (The ceremony, during the dances and toasts, etc.) We shoot very photojournalistic/documentary style weddings with a little taste of classic portraiture mixed in. You can expect a few traditional poses for grandma's photo album, but we ADORE natural posing and candids!
How long will it take to get my photos/film?
While it generally depends on the amount of weddings and sessions I have in the queue, I usually deliver wedding photos anywhere from 4-8 weeks from the date. Engagements and lifestyle sessions take about 2-4 weeks. And any filmwork takes about 4-10 weeks to be delivered.
Do you OFFER A PAYMENT PLAN?
YES. Thank you for asking! I understand that weddings can be stressful and expensive! That's why Adelaide Street couples can hop on an easy, straightforward payment plan to fit their needs. We can split payments up in whatever way is easiest for you as long as all of the fees are settled 2 weeks before the wedding.
Why should I bother with albums and/or prints?
We live in a digital age where sharing and creating are easier than ever, and we certainly want to celebrate that. But this is also an age where it is easier than ever to lose your precious files in computer crashes, flash drive corruptions, and outdated equipment.
What's more, we don't want your GORGEOUS images to sit on a flash drive to be forgotten, and we are sure you don't either!
Our heirloom albums are handcrafted in the U.S. with the finest materials, and Adelaide Street partners with the best pro businesses to negotiate the most affordable price. The albums and prints are beautiful keepsake pieces that you will want to show off on your walls and coffee tables. And they are guaranteed to never fall prey to cyber accidents!
Can you really cover a wedding in just 8 hours?
We are often asked if eight hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story, and the answer is yes! But if you need to, you can always add additional coverage at an hourly rate.
Okay, I want to book you! Now what?
YAY. I'm so excited you want to work with me! I'd love to welcome you into the Adelaide Street family! The next step would be contacting me with some information about you and your photo needs. Then we can meet or have a phone consultation to see if we are a good fit! If we are (and I'm sure we are!) then I will send you a contract and an invoice for your retainer fee.
