Seattle Elopement Photography Pricing Q and A:
How many hours of Elopement Photography is best for my elopement? Factor in travel to your desired photography locations and length of your vows - my recommendation is to book 1.5 hours of photography per portrait location and 1.5 hours for your vows or ceremony plus wedding details, which is why I offer elopements starting from a 3 hour minimum. Elopement packages can range from 3 hours to a full day of love and photos - which is perfect for adventure elopements!
Do elopement photography packages include travel? 80 miles of round trip travel are included in your photography package price, meaning 40 miles each way from Seattle, WA. Locations further than 40 miles of Seattle cost $0.50/mile starting at 41 miles. Elopements requiring travel via plane are subject to Destination wedding pricing.
How many images are included in an elopement package? All images that meet my professional quality standard are included, in high resolution JPEG format, on your personalized wooden USB drive. Typically 40-60 images/hour or more.
Seattle Wedding Photography Pricing Q and A:
Do you offer off-season or cash discounts? Although most weddings occur in the spring and summer months, which means that demand is higher, each wedding client receives the same level of service and care, which is why Entwined Weddings offers the same photography package pricing year-round. As a licensed business, we pay the same amount of tax on every form of payment, so pricing remains the same for cash, check, and credit card payments.
What is a retainer and is it refundable if I change or cancel my wedding date? A retainer of 1/3 of your photography package price, along with a signed contract is required to secure your wedding date to the exclusion of other bookings. This means that if your wedding date is moved or cancelled, the retainer is non-refundable, except in the case of extenuating circumstances, which will be determined on a case by case basis, at the discretion of Entwined Weddings. The reason for this policy is to ensure that our clients get the benefit of committed service on their scheduled date and that our future schedule is consistent for our prospective clients.
What if we decide we want to add more hours of photography on our wedding day? Absolutely, Entwined Weddings will keep in communication with our couples from the first meeting through to the delivery of your beautiful images and products - including on your wedding day when we will ask you before packing up if you would like any additional photography. Additional hours can be added to your invoice after the fact, and will be billed the day after the wedding. Please note that if additional coverage is requested, your images will not be released to you until your invoice has been paid in full.
Seattle Engagement Photography Pricing Q and A:
What is the best time to book an engagement session? If your couples session is before your wedding, allow at least 4 weeks in case you want to print or use your images in your wedding stationary, or even longer if you plan on using them in your invitations.
Can I exchange my complimentary engagement session for another hour of wedding photography? As a general rule, no. Complimentary engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other a little better before your big day - and for you to feel more comfortable in front of the camera without all of the other pressures of your wedding day, which is why they are an important part of your wedding photography package, and why Entwined Weddings offers them free of charge to couples who book for their wedding. As such, they aren't exchangeable for other services or products. If your circumstances prevent you from being able to use an engagement session (such as living in separate cities), an Anniversary session may be substituted.
