Weddings & Engagements

Your wedding day comes once in a lifetime, and it is an event so significant that most people hire a professional photographer to capture the experience so that it can be relived time and again with family and friends. If you are considering hiring a photographer to document your wedding day, please consider the following reasons for choosing our studio:

 

The Personal Touch
It is our goal to record the day’s events in a journalistic nature, unobtrusively capturing the excitement, the wonder, the magic…and yes, occasionally the chaos of the day. Your wedding day belongs to you, and we will not attempt to micro-manage your wedding schedule, but rather provide intuitive, natural and thoughtful coverage of this joyous event.

Image Quality
We shoot high quality digital photos with carefully selected equipment to fit your needs. All of your photos will be available in color or black and white (with options for sepia or toned prints) and photos taken are available for review immediately.

Value
Many photographers maintain the copyrights to their wedding photos and charge for additional prints for years to come. With Brightraven Studios, you own all of the original digital prints from your wedding and full reprinting rights. This means that you do not have to pay mark-ups for custom printing and you can make as many prints as you like, any time you wish.

Your 4×6 proofs will be ready for delivery within 30 days of your wedding or event. The proofs are numbered in sequence for your convenience and delivered in a presentation album, along with the original digital photos on flash drive. Enlargements and folio photos will be ready within approximately 10 working days of being notified of your choices for these prints. We recommend that you do not give away your original proofs from the album.

 

Service
We will be there, prepared to shoot at the time and date that we agree upon. This event comes once in a lifetime, and it is an honor and privilege to serve you on this momentous day. In order to serve you better, we do ask that you provide us will all pertinent information to perform our services.

  • Names, addresses, and phone numbers of all principals in the wedding.
  • The date and time of both the wedding and reception as well as the time you would like us to arrive.
  • The names, address, and phone numbers of the wedding and reception locations.
  • The phone numbers where the bride and groom can be reached on the wedding day.
  • The rules for photographers from your church or wedding location.
  • We request that you provide two lists of formal photos that you wish to have taken at the wedding site. Each family should make a list of people you wish to include in the formal photos and give this list to someone who knows these people. These liaison people can highly facilitate the process of getting all the right people in the right place at the right time. It is extremely awkward for a photographer to be calling out through the church, looking for family members whom he does not know.
