Next Step

Congratulations on taking the 1st step to book with Crane Studio Imaging Wedding Photography.

After filling out our 5 minute planner by clicking here on our pricing page.  We will send you a brochure so you can look through our products and services then decide on which collection fits your wedding.  From there we will communicate back and forth through email then coordinate and schedule a time for a phone consultation to answer any questions you might have.

Typically I like meet with my bride and groom to discuss what the expectations of their wedding day are and to showcase wedding albums from past clients. I recommend meeting with any photographer you are considering to see their portfolio and make sure that they are truly a professional photographer.  I usually will pick a coffee shop nearby.

If you decided to choose us as your photographer we will send you a contract and information page to fill out. At that time we will require a 25% deposit to secure your wedding date.  After the contract is signed and we receive your deposit you are able to set up payment arrangements.  Full payment is required two weeks prior to your wedding day.

Next, you will select a date for your “Get to Know You Session”.  For many couples this is their engagement session.  This session is very important even if you have already had your engagement pictures taken.  Each couple has a unique way of interacting. This session helps me determine what kind of photos you want captured during the wedding.  I always choose a beautiful location and am able to capture stunning photos while getting to know you as a couple.  This really helps all of us feel at ease on the wedding day so I can capture those beautiful intimate moments. I find this session to be very important and that is the reason it is included with all my collections. You can use these photos to announce your engagement, wedding invitations, guest signing books, to display at your wedding or just to show everyone on Facebook how happy you are.

About a month before your wedding you will need to return all the forms that you received with your contract.  Those include the shoot list, wedding information form, and your timeline of the wedding day either provided by you or the DJ.  A schedule is very important it keeps things running smoothly and on time.  Most Vendors have been hired for a specific amount of time.  A DJ generally keeps everything flowing smoothly so you can enjoy the day without wondering what comes next.  If you need DJ recommendations let us know. 

A few days before the wedding we will go over the timeline again to make sure nothing has changed and address any concerns you might have.

On the wedding day we will arrive 30 minutes prior to our contract time to familiarize ourselves with the venue and setup our equipment.  When our allotted time is about up I will ask you if you need us to stay longer. Sometimes weddings get off schedule for one reason or another and we never want to leave before all the important events are complete.  If you need us to stay we bill $150 an hour and will invoice you after the wedding.

Because we take about 1000 photos and color correct each and every one it can take up to a month after the wedding for your proofing gallery to be online. We will contact you when the images are uploaded and you will be able to start picking your photos for your wedding album.  You can give family and friends the information to get into the proofing gallery to look at the photos and to make purchases.  Once you select your photos for your album we will start the album design process which can take about 6 months to finish.  If your collection came with other products such as canvas prints they can be ordered at any time.  We will ship you your DVD with your images and your album as soon as it comes back from the printers.
