The full hour is used, however, if you feel that we have already taken a lot of shots, you just let us know when it is okay to end our session
or simply choose the 30 minute mini session.


3. How many places can we shoot at?

We can certainly shoot at 2 locations in 2 hours depending on the distance and number of minutes you booked.  Hour/minutes going over the time booked for will be extra charge.


4.  Will we receive digital copies of these photos?

Absolutely!  The favorite ones that come with your package deal.


5. Are we allowed to post your photos on social media?

Absolutely.  Please don't forget to #alohabugphotography or give AlohaBug Photography credit to any photos posted online.


6.  Will you be the one shooting our wedding or do you have assistants who shoot for you?

I will be the one shooting your wedding!   If I am booked, you will be notified in our initial conversation
and will be able to have another lead photographer capture your wedding day!

7.  Do you have insurance?

Absolutely!  We are a licensed company and we do have equipment and liability insurance.


8.  What equipment do you use and what if it breaks?

We use professional grade Canon camera bodies and Canon L lenses.  
We fully upkeep the maintenance of our equipment regularly.  
We do test shoots before your event date to make sure that everything is fully functional.
We bring two camera bodies for each pro photographer at your event.  If the other camera body ever breaks, you can rest assure that we have another to photograph with.
The same thing goes for our lenses.  We bring two or more.


9.  What is your style of photography?

Our style is photojournalistic, modern, and fun!  We love working with our clients and we make sure they feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera.
We are also unobtrusive as we respect your ceremony, and we know when to take action!
Depending on the style that you are looking for, we normally photograph with a mixture of candid and posed covering the highlights of your event.  

Disclaimer:  Full cooperation is key in executing these shots including being on time.
"Nice and tall, hands in pockets or hold hands to the front, look straight at my camera," is usually what you will hear in formal photos.  
If there is lack of participation for any reason with the wedding party, family members,
or bride and groom, we, AlohaBug Photography, are not responsible for images that client may be unhappy with as the result.
We are not responsible for any changes in weather conditions at the time of your portrait or event.  
See terms of agreement in signed contract.

11.  Do you also offer Videography or have partnerships with Videographers?

Absolutely!  We have partnerships with Videographers.


12.  Do you bring an assistant/2nd Photographer?

Yes, I bring an assistant with me if I am not shooting with a second photographer.
I encourage a second photographer for another camera angle  especially for bigger weddings.
Two things to keep in mind of the difference between an assistant and a second photographer.
1. Assistant - help with equipment, may shoot for another angle when needed.
2. Second Photographer - a trained professional who will be able to cover the groom's prep, candid shots, details of your reception, photos of your guests, etc.


13.  Have you shot weddings at this venue before?

Here is a link of the venues and places we've shot
at http://www.alohabug.com/WeddingVenuesPlacesVendors
and if you don't see your venue listed, please let us know.  We will honestly let you know if we have worked there or maybe you
could be the first one to invite us in!


14.  In case of emergency, something happens to you, do you have back up?

Yes, at the time of signing our agreement, there are emergency contacts that we will provide you. 


15.  How big is a digital image high resolution file?

Please follow the guideline for printing by clicking here provided by Bay Photo Lab.
The image size given to you is about 4 - 10 MB at 300 PPI (pixels per inch) which is big enough for a 30 x 40 print.  
A 30x40 print is 1625 x 2166, while a 5.5 MB is about 4743 × 3162 making you print sizes bigger than 30 x 40.  More helpful information on print sizes etc.
