WEDDINGS

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How much will my wedding/engagement pictures/etc. cost?
Wedding packages begin at $1500, and most of the packages include a complimentary Engagement Session! Additional sessions, such as a boudoir shoot or bridal portrait session are priced upon request. Please contact Cheyenne for a custom quote.

Will you travel if my wedding is outside of Florida? 
Absolutely!  

Will you be the one taking the photos at our wedding?
Yes!

How would you describe your style?
My style is natural and organic, with a hint of photojournalism. My priority is to document the story of your wedding day. These photos are for YOU, and I strive to capture all of the moments and details that will help you to remember this day as clearly and as fondly as possible. I’m relaxed, very creative, and highly visual. I love capturing candid moments.

Will there be backup equipment available?
Yes. I always take at least two camera bodies to every wedding I shoot. As well as many different lenses, memory cards, etc.

How many photos will you deliver?
I deliver an average of 50-100 pictures per hour, and my wedding packages are designed accordingly

Will you accept a list for specific photos to be taken?
Prior to your wedding day, I will provide a form requesting a list of formal family groupings and specific items/details (hand-written vows, family heirlooms, etc.). Other than those groupings I do not accept shot lists - but for a good reason! Following a list takes away from my creativity and my photojournalistic approach to photography. Rather than checking off a to-do list, so to speak, I want to be present and in the moment throughout your wedding day!

How long after the event will the proofs be ready?
Your gallery will be ready 8-10 weeks following your wedding day. 

What type and how much assistance will you provide in planning my album?
I love to design albums! I am a creative and highly visual person, so I will happily give all the assistance you need. I can fully design your album, present it to you, and then make whatever changes you feel are necessary before we send to print.

Will you give a CD with all the pictures or is there an extra charge for that?
You will receive access to an online gallery with all your high-resolution images and print release. You are free to share the link to this gallery with whomever you'd like. However, Cheyenne Alford Photography will still hold copyright over the images.

Do you have liability insurance?
Absolutely!

Is my wedding the only one you will be shooting that day?
Yes.

What happens if you are ill?
I have a network of other photographers who I would turn to to take my place. Most of whom are dear friends and people that I would trust with my own wedding! Heaven forbid I were to fall ill on your wedding day, I would find you a suitable, competent replacement with similar style and price point to mine. I would still be the one to edit all the images taken so the editing style will be consistent with what you see on my website. 

Do you provide a written contract?
Yes, I do! 

Can I take a copy of the contract home with me to read before I sign it?
The contract is delivered online and you will have access to it anytime before and after booking. You are free to take as long as you need and come to me with any questions you might have! I know this is a big decision. :)

Is a retainer required? If so, how much?
Yes. A retainer and signed contract will hold your date. The retainer is $500.00. You can also pay a retainer of 50% of the package price you choose if you’d like. The remaining balance will be due 30 days before your wedding/event. *Payment plans are also available upon request!

Do you charge Sales Tax?
Yes, as required by Florida Law.
