We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions AND ANSWERS for your convenience. If you have other questions, feel free to email US AT NADINE@HEARTANDRAEPHOTO.COM


Q. What is our investment?

A. We offer a selection of wedding photography collections and a la carte services to customize the prefect package for you, including extra hours of coverage, engagement sessions and wedding albums. Lifestyle Sessions including Portraits, Maternity, Newborn and Family are $500.

Please contact us for detailed pricing information about the collections and products we offer.  

Q. How do we book you?

A. We recommend we meet before booking your date, regardless of how we meet whether it be a coffee date, phone conversation, or a video chat.  Shoot us an email, let’s set up a time to chat and get to know one another! 

All wedding dates are available on a first come, first serve basis.  Dates can be reserved with a signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of 50% of your total.  The remainder is due 30 days prior to the wedding.

Q. Do you travel?

A.  Yes, it’s been one of our greatest joys to travel and experience new locations and cultures.  We would love to be a part of your wedding.  Please contact us to create a custom wedding collection for you.

Q. Do you photograph
small, intimate weddings?

A. Yes!  We have photographed many small weddings and specialize in capturing those intimate moments without you even knowing we are there! Please contact us for custom pricing.

Q. Should we do an engagement session or day after session?    

 A.  We recommend having an engagement shoot because it gives us the chance to get to know you a little better and gives you the chance to see how we work.  It’s a great way to capture the real you as a couple.  We also find it makes couples more comfortable with the day-of wedding portraits.  You will have the time to feel at ease in front of the camera in an epic location of your choosing.

Maybe you want to continue your wedding story and do a day after wedding session to create unique, stylized and fine art portraits.   

These photos could be used for save-the-dates or thank you cards. 

Q. Can you photograph our bridal shower,
     rehearsal dinner and day after brunch?  

A. Yes, having those special gatherings captured is a wonderful way to extend the coverage of your wedding experience and get even more pictures of your family and friends.  You can add coverage at an hourly price.

Q. Should we see each other
before the ceremony?  

A. It’s absolute your preference as a couple.  But, we say YES!  We will arrange a private, intimate moment for you to see each other for the first time.  Many times this creates some of the most organic and emotional images of the day of you as a couple.  It’s also a bonus to get all portraits and formal pictures done before your ceremony so you can enjoy the rest of the wedding uninterrupted.

Q. Will we get all the pictures?

A. You will receive all your fully edited and processed Hi-Resolution images. You can easily download all your images from your private online gallery.  This includes license to reproduce and share them for personal use.

Q. Do you edit and process the photos?

A. Yes, we personally go through all the images and edited them down to a collection of images that best tells the story of your wedding day.  Each image is corrected for color, contrast and tonal quality to be print ready.  Selected images will be turned into black and white.  We take great care in making sure your images look perfect.

Q. How do I view my pictures online
and order prints?

A. It’s all in one convenient place!  You can view all your wedding images and order prints and canvases through your private online gallery.  Easily send this link to family and guests to also order prints, canvases and digital files.  We highly recommend ordering prints through our lab
for the high end quality paper and true color.

Q. When will my pictures be ready?

A. Your pictures will be ready up to 4 weeks after your wedding.
