Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find detailed pricing information?

To receive detailed info on our collections please fill our contact form or send an email to info@nancyaidee.com.

How can I reserve my wedding date?

To check availability please fill the contact form or send an email to info@nancyaidee.com. Once your inquiry is received, we will respond with our availability and pricing. If you wish to move forward scheduling a phone chat or a consultation would follow. A phone chat is regularly scheduled with out of town clients or for clients with tight work times; this allows for me to learn more about you, the wedding and your photography needs.

A consultation is always recommended and can be scheduled at my home office for you to look at sample albums and go over payment and contract details. In order to reserve a date a 50% retainer is required along with a signed contract.

How long after the wedding does it take to get our wedding images?

Images are usually ready for proofing in your online gallery within 3-5 weeks af ter the wedding day. For Engagements and Bridal images, you can expect 3-4 weeks.

Do you travel?

Yes, we enjoy traveling with our clients! We often photograph events all around Texas and other US cities. Previous international destinations include Mexico, I taly and South Africa.

Do you have an assistant or work with a second photographer?

Yes. In the case where a second photographer is not needed an assistant will be there to help throughout the day. However, I highly recommend a second photographer when the event will have over 100 guests. This allows for ample coverage of events happening simultaneously in different places and wedding guests.

Do you offer coverage for the rehearsal dinner?

Yes. Rehearsal dinners can be booked along with wedding package at an hourly rate.

How many images do you take on an average 8 hour wedding day?

We do not limit ourselves to shooting specific amount of images on your wedding day. The amount of images taken can vary per event but overall for an average 8 hour wedding we deliver between 600-900 images.

Do you have any vendors you recommend?

Please make sure to check out our list of favorite vendors under info section, these are the best of the best!

Do you edit all photos?

Yes, all of your images will be optimized and enhanced at its best for printing purposes. I like to keep all images consistent and as natural as possible. The main post-production work done on the images includes color correction, saturation and contrast.

Can I have a disc of my wedding images?

All collections include a DVD with your Wedding Day images in High and Low Resolution. A print release document is also included with your DVD. For Engagement, Bridal and Day Af ter sessions a CD with all images in High and Low Resolution can be purchased separately as an A la Carte item.

Do you require a photo list?

Yes. I can not stress enough the importance of providing us with a photo list. Before your wedding day we either meet up or schedule a conference call to go through your wedding itinerary and your photo list. The photo list should include all Pre-Ceremony and Post-Ceremony portraits and any other important details/moments that will be part of your wedding story. If necessary I can provide you with a template for you to fill out.

How much time do you need for portraits?

This can vary depending on how many people you’d like to be captured with as well as the variations of the groups. For both bride and groom’s Pre-Ceremony photos we suggest to leave a minimum of 30 minutes each. Post-Ceremony photos usually range f rom 20-30 mins maximum.

Can friends and family view and buy images?

Yes. Your proofing gallery also serves for your f riends and family to view and purchase prints. You can add them to the gallery with their email addresses or you can send us a list of all email addresses for us to invite them directly when your gallery goes live.

Do you offer albums?

Yes, we love to help our clients with their wedding books. There is nothing like having your wedding images on print and being able to show them around.
Here’s a list of the albums we offer.

How does the album design process work?

All albums are custom designed based on client’s favorite photos. A 20 page book fits a maximum of 90 images and a 30 page book fits a maximum of 130 images. Once the images are posted in the gallery you can start working on your selection by adding them as favorites. After your selection is ready please email us to let us know and we’ll start designing your wedding book.

The design process usually takes 3-4 weeks from the date your final selection is received. We will send you a PDF with the design for you to approve or make any changes. After approval the book is sent out to print and is usually ready for delivery within 4-6 weeks.

How soon should I schedule engagement and bridal sessions?

Engagement sessions are usually scheduled 6-8 months prior to wedding day. If you are wanting to use the photos for Save the Dates I definitely recommend scheduling your session 8-10 months prior to wedding date to allow enough time for images to be ready. Bridal sessions are usually scheduled 3-4 months prior to wedding date. Please note all sessions are usually booked on a weekday unless client lives out of town or work doesn’t allow we will do our best to fit you on a weekend day.

What should I wear for my engagement?

For engagement sessions I always suggest clients to have two different outfits, one casual chic and one dressy. Colors should blend well and also make sure to choose clothes you feel comfortable with. Feel free to check out our engagement portfolio to get more ideas.

How long after the session does it take to get the photos?

All photos are ready in the gallery for proofing within 2-4 weeks after session.

How long do sessions take?

All sessions vary from 1-2.5 hrs., depending on location and outfits.

Our wedding will be out of town, would you be able to do our engagement photos only?

Yes, I can definitely help you with your Engagement photos.

How do we pick a location for our engagement session?

I have a variety of locations I like to take my clients but if you have a special place please let me know, I ‘d love to incorporate this to the shoot. Locations can vary from beautiful greenery scenery to urban or old texas, it all depends on your style and interests.

How do I book a Portrait session?

To check availability please fill the contact form or send an email to info@nancyaidee.com. Please make sure to mention you are inquiring for a portrait session. For maternity and newborn sessions please make sure to include your due date. To reserve a date we require a $150 deposit that will be credited to your final balance. Once you have reserved a date we will schedule with a phone consultation to discuss all final details (cloth ing, location, lighting conditions, weather, etc).

PORTRAITS

How much time should I plan for a Portrait session?

Most portrait sessions last one hour and in some cases like newborn sessions they can go over 2 hours.

What should we wear?

This definitely depends on the style you are going for (formal or casual) and your photos usage. I always suggest to wear colors that go together and coordinate well, but definitely not matching outfits. If you have little ones you definitely want to bring two outfits in case you need to change clothes.

What products do you offer?

We offer a variety of products from loose prints, albums, canvas prints to holiday cards. All of these can be purchased as A la Carte items before or after the session.

Where will the Portrait session be held?

Locations for your portrait session can vary from your favorite park, your home or a favorite family spot. With little ones I always suggest open spaces that will allow for them to have more fun.

Do you offer mini sessions?

Yes, starting this fall we will be offering mini sessions every spring and fall season. Exact date and location will be announced on the blog early August for fall sessions and early January for spring sessions. Make sure to contact us to book your space.
