Wallflower Wedding Photography | FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you charge what you do? Our prices reflect the cost of being professional wedding photographers which means professional experience, training, and professional equipment.  We have the experience of photographing over 80 weddings and with each one of them we have learned a lot about weddings and providing a professional product to our clients. While some photographers consist of one photographer, one hobbyist camera, and a few lenses, we are a professional photography team consisting of two photographers, six professional cameras, multiple professional lenses, and lighting equipment.  The other factors in our pricing are as follows:
1) Our Training: We invest in our training so we can provide you images which will last a lifetime. Our lead photographer Shel has been trained by one of the top five wedding photographers in the world, Jerry Ghionis, http://www.jerryghionis.com/ 
To read more about our training please see our training page at: 
2) Our Gear: We believe that we owe our customers to invest in the best photography gear in the world to ensure we get great images. To read more about our gear please see our gear page at: 
3) Our time commitment:  For each wedding we do we meet with each client, have a phone conference, clean and pack our equipment, travel to the location, and spend weeks editing all images.
4) Our advertising: It takes a lot to get the "word out" to ensure great people like you hear about us.
5) Limited number of weddings we can do: Approximately 80% of the weddings we photograph are on Saturday's and we only do one wedding a day. The weather also limits the  number of days per year we can do weddings.
6) Taxes, Licenses, etc: We are licensed, insured, and conduct ourselves as a professional business. We are proud to be accredited members of the BBB with an A+ rating. Also, as a professional business we we pay a large part of all income as taxes to the city, state, and federal government. 

After you take our wedding pictures who has the rights to them?  With the majority of wedding photographers they keep all rights to your images.  With Wallflower we give you all rights to your high-resolution edited images. This allows you and your guests to print them wherever and whenever you want.  Not only that, but you can download them and share them as you like on all social media sites and email. 

How will I and my guests receive the images?  Normally at the reception we will give all guests a business card with a 4 digit password to your personal web gallery. We also explain to them how to access the images 45 days after the wedding. Once your web gallery is ready we notify the Bride and Groom so only you can review the images, prior to us releasing them to your guests. Once you approve them we open the gallery to all guests who have the password. 

Is there a way for me to order more digital images after the wedding?  We give all of our clients 14 days after the wedding to tell us if they would like to purchase more digital images and to pay for them.  Once these 14 days have passed we delete all images that we have not selected to be edited.

Do you offer any discounts? Yes, we say thanks by giving all active duty military, first responders, or retired military $100.00 off of Daisy Wedding Package, $150.00 off of the Tulip Wedding Package, and $200.00 off of the Rose Wedding Package. However, any discounts cannot be combined.   

Do you require a deposit? Yes, all wedding packages require a non-refundable $500.00 deposit which is broken down into a $250.00 initial payment due at the time of signing and an additional $250.00 due by 30 days after the booking.  Or you can just pay us the $500.00 deposit at the time of signing. 

Do you just do engagement sessions? Yes, however, if you book an engagement session, and not our wedding package, our price is $550.00 per two hour session.

Do you have an overtime rate? Yes, if you need us beyond the agreed hourly limit it is $200.00 per hour and it can be arranged when you book us, or if you decide the day of the wedding you need us to stay longer, just tell us, and you can pay us any time prior to the images being released (45 days after the wedding).

What payments do you accept? We accept payment with cash, check, Pay Pal, and all major credit cards.  We have a secured on-line payment site also. Setting up a payment plan is also an option, no interest of course, just as long as it is paid in full by one week prior to the date of your wedding. 

Do you charge travel fees?  All of our package prices are for the Nashville/Clarksville/Hopkinsville area.  Sessions outside a reasonable traveling distance may incur agreed upon travel fees.
