frequently asked questions
Having trouble deciding which collection is the perfect fit for your wedding? Take a look at these common questions that real brides ask about our wedding collections.
How many wedding photography hours do I need?
The number of guests you’ll expect at your wedding is a good way to determine the number of photography hours you’ll need. You’ll need approximately one hour of photography per 30 guests at your wedding. If you have more than 60 guests at your wedding, having two photographers is very important to make sure every detail is captured. We charge by the hour to make sure you aren’t paying us to stand around at your wedding. You can ask any former bride, if we are there, we are working our tails off.
Are there any additional charges?
If your engagement session, bridal session or your wedding venue is 25 miles outside of the Russellville, AR we do charge a travel fee. We don’t have a set price list as far as travel fees go because the cost of travel fluctuates so much, so please always ask if your session or venue is not in Russellville. Also, the listed price of each collection does not include AR State Sales Tax of 9.5%.
How do I actually book my wedding?
In order to officially book your wedding on our calendar, you’ll first need to choose a collection. Your total price will then be calculated to include any applicable travel fees and sales tax. To officially reserve your date you will either pay a 550.00 deposit with Collection 1 or a 450.00 deposit with Collections 2 &3. You must submit this along with your contract which can be submitted either digitally or with a paper copy in the mail. You can also pay your deposit online via PayPal (with a 3% added fee) or with check by mail. You will receive an email after we receive it to congratulate you on being an official #SHINGLEURBRIDE! After that, we will divide your total payment into at least 3 separate payments and assign each of them a due date. Then we can start scheduling all the fun stuff like engagements and bridals!
