Top Wedding Photography Questions - FAQs I

Allebach Photography's FAQs

What is up with 2 photographers or an assistant?
Just as we backup our equipment we also back ourselves up. When there are two photographers at your wedding you will get more creative photos & different angles. Plus, we belong to a network of professional wedding photographers who are available to back each other up in case of emergency.

Where do you find your second photographers?
They are usually friends who own a wedding photography business with your wedding date open.

I love your photography. Are you looking for an assistant?
Sorry, we currently have more assistant requests than we can handle.

My uncle bob has a $3,000 camera. Why should we hire a professional wedding photographer?
Good question! We have experience + knowlege + talent + creativity + equipment. Equipment is just part of the formula for good photos. Plus, we have photographed dozens and dozens more weddings than uncle bob. We also carry tons of backup equipment (2-4 cameras, 6-8 lenses, lighting gear, multiple flashes). Not to mention we are legal, insured against liability and pay taxes. Also we've dealt with strict priests, crying children and stressed mother-in-laws.

Do megapixels matter?
If you see a photographer's work at 20x30 and you like it, then megapixel does not matter. End of discussion.

Do camera brands matter?

Why do you photograph weddings?

I don't plan to put my engagement announcement in the newspaper, why do I need an engagement photography session?
People ask about our engagement photo sessions all the time. Do we need one? What do the e-sessions cost? Well to our wedding clients they are FREE! This time as a get to know you time. Over the years we have found that the engagement sessions let us know how comfortable in front of a camera a couple is and how to best communicate with the Bride and Groom on the wedding day.

I'm getting married in Jamaica, can you shoot a Trash the Dress or Engagement photo session for me?
Sure just shoot us an email at weddings@allebachphotography.com

Do makeup artists matter?
Besides you, your soon to be husband/wife and the pastor/officiant...the makeup artist is the most important person. They make the photograph or videographer look like a hero.
