Frequently Asked Questions
How many photos do you take?
We don’t put a limit on the numbers of images that we take, and the emphasis is upon quality. Each event has a different flow with its unique moments and we are there to capture them for you. Expect somewhere between 1000 and 2500 + images depending on the duration of your event.
Do you just shoot color pictures?
We capture everything in full color. Any image can be converted into classic black & white or nostalgic sepia tone. Your images can also be treated to other effects like soft glow or light touchup and fashionable grain. Allow us to share some of the effects and the interesting possibilities that can be added to your beautiful images with a full consultation.
How do we reserve you to photograph our wedding?
I am more than happy to meet with you and show you some of our latest work, answer any questions you might have and explore the coverage you’d like. We custom make a package that fits your special day, approve the package, and go over the contract. To reserve a date, clients place a $1000 retainer which is applied to the total cost of your package. Keep in mind at Dylan Dawson Photography we will always provide excellent service to fit your budget.
I love my pictures…now what do we do next? or “Once I select my photos, what is next”?
We offer a variety of albums. Once you have chosen the images you’d like to have in your storybook album, it is designed by our image specialist. You review the designed album layouts, Dylan Dawson Photography covers the first set of changes you might have and once approved, it is sent to the mainland to be set and bound by a leading publishing house.
Are there any added fees?
The 4.712% general excise tax has not been added to any of the original packages. We make sure that all possible added costs such as travel / lodging fees for off Island, or “ala carte” requests will be discussed and agreed upon prior to signing the contract. You will find that a lot of the surprise “add ons” used to pad the final cost in the industry are included in our packages at no extra charge.
