Q. When will we receive our images?
A. I know how exciting it is to get your pictures back, if you are waiting for wedding images I will have them back to you within 6-8 weeks of the day! I won't leave you hanging though, you will get sneak peaks during the wait!
All other sessions will be delivered within 2-4 weeks. Sessions and weddings are delivered on a custom USB!
Q. Do you retouch/edit the images?
A. After a photoshoot is done I spend hours at the computer weeding out the blurry photos, the ones where you blinked, basically all the ones you don't want to see! After I choose only the BEST, I edit and retouch every photo with my signature presets!
Now, that being said, I only do minimal retouching - I believe everyone is beautiful and I won't make you skinnier, or slim out your nose - however, that pesky pimple that just showed up? I'll zap that one out! Don't worry I got your back!
Q. Are we allowed to post photos from our wedding day or session on social media?
A. Absolutely!! All I ask is that you credit Brooke Sawatzky Photography appropriately and do not edit/alter the images.
Q. Would you travel for our wedding/session?
A. ALWAYS! I absolutely love exploring this beautiful Earth, fill out my contact form for a personalized travel quote!
Q. How many photographers will be at my wedding?
A. Packages can include one or two photographers.
Q. We've never had a professional couple's photoshoot done, what should I do to not look awkward or stiff?
A. All I have to say is just relax! Very few people are comfortable right from the get-go! All you have to do is trust me, and have fun! You will laugh, get cozy and love up on each other!
Q. How would you describe your photography style?
A. My photography style is very much unposed! I will be giving you small direction and prompts here and there, but for the most part I will be your third-wheel while you love the crap out of each other and just have FUN.
Q. Where can I find out about your pricing?
A. My starting prices are underneath the info tab! If you would like to learn more about my packages please fill out the contact form and shoot me an email!
Q. How many pictures will we receive?
A. For engagement/couples sessions you will receive anywhere between 100-250 images. I shoot with a story-telling perspective, so it depends on what the session involves and how long the session goes. For weddings, you can expect approximately 75-100 images per hour of shooting. Typically couples receive 800-1500 images. All images are full resolution jpegs for you to print at your leisure.
Q. Can we get all RAW (unedited) pictures from our shoot?
A. Absolutely not. The RAW images are not a representation of my work and under no circumstances will they be released to a client.
Q. How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
A. I recommend booking in the early stages of wedding planning! Prime summer and fall dates are often times booked 12-18 months in advance. So please contact me as soon as possible to check if your date is available!
