Other Important Contact Information:

Annex “B”
The Wedding Photographer agrees to provide the following services:

a. Pre-Wedding Services:
The pre-planning stage is when we get together 1-2 times before the wedding to plan out the shots you’d like me to take and where to be and when.
We will go over the photos you absolutely want list and photos you’re okay with having but don’t really need list. We would also go over the timeline of your wedding in one of those meetings. Another note to go over in one of those meetings is to know if you’d want to go to a different destination for glamor shots.

b. Wedding Rehearsal Services:
As you are partaking of the rehearsal, I will be in the background taking mental notes of where I can be at. I will ask questions when appropriate to have a good understanding of the ability that I have to move around.

c. Wedding Day Services:
I will be using each list as a guideline to what you’d like from me. I will be there with you for the amount of time that it takes for me to complete the list. I will not stay past 10 pm though. This is dependent on when the day actually starts.

d. Editing Services:
I will be giving you 10 photos that I choose the day after your wedding for social media purposes. The others will also be chosen from the list of what you’d want from the pre-planning meeting and be sent to you the no later than 7 days after the wedding.

e. Additional Information and/or Services Requested:
The camera I have and will be using is a Sony Alpha 6500 that has a 24.2 MP sensor with great autofocus.
