Creating art that connects people with their memories
— R. Dennis Crawford

Style & Background

What photography styles do you specialize in; are there any styles you don’t do?

Most wedding photographers are highly skilled at capturing a variety of styles and shots. The Visual Artist Studios primary focus is a delicate blend of Artistic - Classic - Dramtic.

·         These are the more common “styles” of wedding photography:

  • Artistic

  • Classic

  • Documentary

  • Dramatic

  • Lifestyle

Will the photographs be retouched?

·         All photographs presented will be retouched, edited or color corrected (as needed)

Do you shoot both digital and film?

No, I shoot only digital. Although my training started in film, before digital. I still have an affinity for the mood and texture that film produces. On select Signature Portraits I can produce a film-like quality.

What is included in your packages?

All packages include a Signature Print. Depending on the Collection chosen the following is available… (see Pricing page - link below).

How many hours of coverage do we get? What’s the charge for overtime in case we need you longer?

You’ll receive what I call: Full Day Coverage. That usually includes coverage from the Bridal Preparation to the cake cutting.

What’s the deposit and total fee?

The non-refundable retainer is 50% of your total investment (depending upon the collections selected), with the remainder due 14 days before the event. Once a signed contract and retainer are received, your date is secure and on calendar.

Shooters & Assistants

Will you be the actual Photographer or will one of your associates shoot our wedding?

I am the Primary Photographer and will be providing coverage on your wedding day.

Do you have backup Photographers who will shoot the wedding if you’re sick?

Yes. I have a Team of Photographers, Videopgraphers, DJ’s and Makeup Artist who assist me directly and in case of an unforeseen event.

Will there be any second shooters or assistants?

Yes, if we coordinate that at the time of scheduling. I normally bring with me a make-up artist for the Bride and a “Day of Wedding” coordinator/assistant. A second shooter/photography assistant is an additional cost.

Logistics

How long after the wedding do we get to see the photographs?

Final presentation (excluding Album) can be up to 8 weeks – additional time is needed if an Album is included in your package.

How do you coordinate with my videographer?

I arrive early on purpose in order to introduce myself to the vendors of the day. My coordination with the videographer is to make sure we don’t cross each others shot angles.

How many weddings do you shoot a weekend?

No more than 2 weddings per weekend.

Will you be following a shot list? Or do you prefer to have free reign to capture the festivities how you see fit?

Free reign primarily. I offer my couples the traditional wedding party portraits with a bit of Artistic posing as well as a wealth of candid shots that document the day and tell your Story.

What will you wear to shoot our wedding?

I always dress Professionally. I love fashion and style, and it’s reflected in my work attire.
