for PHOTOGRAPHY CLIENTS
We are looking to book you as a wedding photographer. What’s the process?
Shoot me an e-mail! hello [at] simoneanne [dot] com
Let me know the date, location, approximate number of guests, and any other details you think are important. I’ll send you more portfolio links to look through and pricing information. We can discuss details, meet-up if possible, & more. :)
A signed contract and 50% retainer fee is required to book. The final 50% is due two weeks before your wedding day.
How do you deliver final images?
ALL of my wedding packages include fully edited, high resolution digital images delivered to you. I’m currently sharing them via online cloud storage but I may be transitioning to USB drive. Let’s chat about what I’m currently doing & see what works best for you! Images are generally delivered 3-6 weeks after your wedding date.
We are a couple also looking to hire other professionals for our wedding. Do you have recommendations?
When I work with a vendor I really love, I add them to this list of Resources. You’ll find music, hair, make-up, and more… the list continues to grow as I meet and work with more cool people! :)
about PHOTOGRAPHY / for PHOTOGRAPHERS
Where does your inspiration come from? What photographers do you like?
My favorites places for finding interwebs goodness are: Bonnie Tsang, NYTimes Lens Blog, Jose Villa, Timothy Allen, Jonathan Canlas, Ryan Muirhead, Hilda Grahnat, and many more. I’m always looking at photos online.
What do you shoot with?
Bags: The Bowery Antique Cognac Small Goods Bag & Insert, Lowepro Pro Roller Lite 250AW, Lowepro Pro Roller x300, Lowepro Pro Roller x200, TRKFLD Marty bag in blue and white stripes, for shooting :)
How do you shoot?
I shoot RAW and manually adjust my exposure and color temperature (I use the setting K). I minimally edit in Lightroom 4 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 with VSCO Film Presets and Adobe Camera Raw before batch saving to JPEG.
I am looking to get into photography OR shoot more photographs of my life & family. Can you give me advice on what camera to buy?
Sorry. I really don’t research cameras beyond for my own personal use as it relates to what I need & how much I spend on my business. See above for more on what I shoot with.
