Why choose barnyard?
wedding photography faq
We are glad to accept a list of family groups that you would like us to take. We are great photographers, but we do not know the people in your families. We even provide a planning tool that allows you to select which photos you would like, and helps to give you a time estimate for your photography. However, please do not ask us to work from a list that you found on a website or in a magazine. We insist on having the freedom to capture your day as it happens, rather than being limited by a specific list.
We offer an option just for these cases. We offer two versions, planning only, and photo coverage. Should you want either of these options, be sure to choose them when filling out your contract. In the case of rehearsal attendance, make sure to let us know as early as possible; so that we can have the date available.
Of course. It’s not required, but we’re glad to offer it if you’d like to add it to your package. A lot of what we offer is designed to make you comfortable with us and our services. We generally suggest waiting until a few weeks before the wedding, so that things are close enough to be of concrete value. If you don’t opt for a meeting prior, your photographer will reach out to you in the week before your wedding to make final confirmations.
We know you will be excited to see your photos! We concentrate on delivering completed weddings to our couples as quickly as possible.
We do not provide teaser photos, however, we always include a preview set of our favorite images in a mobile gallery around 2-3 weeks after the wedding. Typically you’ll receive 50-100 edited images in a mobile gallery app while we finish up the full set. Mobile galleries are only included with our 7-hour, 9-hour, and 12-hour packages.
We don’t take “table shots” or do “video interviews” for a very good reason… As a rule, guests feel very pressured and awkward in these situations. If you would like “table shot” photographs, we recommend that you visit the tables at your wedding, and have your guests pose with you. They are always more receptive to the couple than a photographer alone. As for “video interviews”… We recommend our Video Booth for this very purpose. It gives your guests privacy and time to prepare themselves without any pressure. It gives a far better result.
Given the option, the best time for outdoor photos is usually about an hour before sunset. Remember, sunset times change by the season. Always plan to have your outdoor photos finished before the sun is down. Although we can shoot them in the dark, they look much better with natural light.
Be mindful of your surroundings. Don’t position yourselves so that you will be “staring into the sun” during your vows. It’s uncomfortable, and you won’t get as many good pictures. Additionally, check your venue in advance for prime photo spots.
Check the sunset times for your wedding day. Although sunset allows for creative and beautiful photos; don’t run late. Sunset waits for no bride.
Always have a backup plan, in case of inclement weather.
We would love to hear from you! Please tell us as much about your event as possible. We answer most messages within a few hours. If you are ready to reserve your date, feel free to BOOK ONLINE at any time.
