FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Here are a few of commonly asked questions about our wedding photography coverage.

If you still have any questions after reading this feel free to contact us anytime at info@crestedlightphotography.com

 

What are your pricing and packages that you offer?

Our rates and packages are not listed on our site for many reasons. Seeing that no two weddings are alike our packages are just a starting point for your individual requirement. If you'd like to obtain our package details and pricing please send us an email or fill out our contact form "here" and we will gladly send you all the information that you request.

I have seen your packages, but can I make changes?

Yes you can. Whilst the packages we’ve sent apply to most of our couples, we totally understand that weddings are unique as each couple getting married. Just let us know your particular needs for that day and we can help create a customized package especially for you.

We would like you to be our wedding photographer, how do we reserve our wedding date?

That's great. The next step would be to email us to let me know your date and, so we can check our availability. Once you have selected the best package for you, we can schedule an appointment to meet. To make a booking requires the signing of our contract and payment of the retainer (i.e. 50% payment of your selected wedding package). A confirmed booking is not made until both the retainer and signed contract are received.

Can you hold the date for me?

Unfortunately we do not hold dates for anyone. To be fair we have a first come, first serve policy, to the couple that presents the signed contract and retainer first.

How soon do we need to book you?

As soon as you're ready. Certain dates are more popular than others and it’s always best to secure our services as early as you can to avoid disappointment. Our calendar fills up at a moment's notice so you should plan to book 8-12 months in advance. If you are planning on a shorter time frame please email us to check availability.

We are working with a budget, are your prices flexible?

Our packages and pricing have been carefully composed and priced according to their value, so the short answer is "No". Many operating costs have been considered when creating our prices. Not only do we consider the purchasing and insurance of critical professional gear, but also the time spent upwards of 25 hours editing images for presentation. Our prices are set forth for a reason.

With that said, however, there are things that do allow us to be flexible. No two weddings are alike and we offer options where we can create custom packages that suits exactly what you need.  Another factor is if it’s close to your wedding date (a month or so) and you need a photographer at short notice, and that date is available, we can usually work something out as well. Never hesitate to ask if we can help!

What happens after the booking?

We’ll then start pre-wedding consultations leading up to the day. If an Engagement session was included in your package this will also be an opportunity for us to get to know a bit more about you. You can also contact us at anytime if you have any questions or think we can help and advise you in any way during your wedding planning process.

Is there an additional cost for weddings in Tobago?

Yes, the additional cost will be to cover our travel expenses and in some cases if the event finishes at unsuitable hours, then reasonable overnight accommodation charges will also be included. Please contact us for more details.

How far do you travel and what does it cost?

We will travel anywhere in the Caribbean for your destination wedding, no problem. Travel and lodging for such weddings will be required. Please talk to us to get specific figures.

What cameras do you use?

We use professional Nikon DSLR cameras, along with several professional lenses, and selected lighting gear.

How long until I can see my photos?

The estimated time it takes to receive your photos is usually within 6-8 weeks, but we always make every effort to be faster.

How many photos will we be getting?

We do not put a limit on the number of photos you will receive. You can estimate 70-100 images per hour of photography coverage. For instance an 8 hour wedding you can expect to receive approximately 560-800 images.

Do you edit all the images we receive?

Yes we do basic editing to all images received. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, and other special effects. Any high level custom retouching/editing will be extra. 

What is  custom retouching and why is it additional?

While we do include basic touch ups (e.g. removal of blemishes, red eyes etc.) in post production on selected images, advanced custom post production, example requiring extensive custom work on multiple photos and for work done in Photoshop such as removing entire objects from the scene, changing size/shape of body parts in the scene, adding or removing objects to a scene etc. We charge hourly for the custom post production as the time required ranges depending on the complexity of the project. Please contact us for a quote for custom retouching.
