General Wedding FAQ

October 10, 2018

Thanks for stopping by. I compiled a list of usual questions I’ve been asked over the years in this general wedding FAQ to help you get some of your doubts out of the way. Please feel free to bring me your own list.


Pre-Wedding Decisions

Do you suggest any vendors?

We have a list of vendors that we suggest to every bride. Please check out my list of the best savannah wedding vendors to view them.


Should I do a first look?

Absolutely. First looks are the very best thing you can do to ensure great wedding photos. It allows us so much more time to get all the photos you need. It also gives us a back up plan in case of rain. We will have more time to capture your wedding photos more calmly before the ceremony. I highly encourage it. You can also read this blog post “How a first look can save your wedding day”. It will show you all the scenarios where a first look can improve your wedding photos tremendously.


Can you help us with the timeline?

Absolutely! You can learn my post about wedding photography checklist and timeline which will help you create an amazing wedding timeline!


Can we do a venue walk-though?

Of course! We can meet you at the venue and go over any questions you have months before the wedding.


Should I do a “fake exit”?

A fake exit is a great way to still capture your sparkler exit but doing it at an earlier part of the evening. Most couples don’t hire us to stay until the end of the wedding day. We normally finish working after the cake is cut so sometimes couples do a fake exit to still capture it on camera. After we capture the fake exit, you and your guests go back inside and continue with the festivities.


Wedding Day Logistics

We are very shy in front of the cameras, can you help us? 

Of course! It is our job to make you feel at ease in front of our cameras and we will do our best to deliver wedding photos that make you look comfortable.


What time will you arrive? 

We normally arrive around 30 minutes before our scheduled time.


In the morning off the wedding, how can I get a hold of you? 

My cellphone, 912-604-1544


What if it rains on my wedding day? 

Under no circumstances can we shoot outdoors in extreme inclement weather, due to the nature of our equipment and/or for the safety of our crew. In the event that the weather takes a turn for the worse, it will be the sole discretion of the lead crew member whether recording/photography can take place, depending upon the amount of moisture getting on the equipment. In the event that there is a borderline situation in heaviness of rain, we ask for your understanding that the final product may consist of less footage/photos than was originally intended. The payments rendered are non-refundable if poor weather or force majeure prevents us from working.


When do you guys eat dinner? 

We require a quality meal during dinner, under no circumstances can we eat sub-standard “vendor-meals,” please relay this to your planner and/or venue, feeding the crew is an often forgotten detail which leads to a hungry and sluggish crew. The crew works very hard for the client during the entire day and it is our policy to ask the client to provide the crew with a quality dinner.


My venue has some restrictions, what do we do? 

It is the responsibility of the client to secure permission of the venue or other officials to photograph the ceremony. The payments rendered are non-refundable if such officials prevent photographing or force us to shoot from really far away. The client understands that if a venue limits our placement and movement of camera then the quality and artistry of the final product can and will be impacted.


Post Wedding Info

When do we receive the wedding photos and/or video?

Delivery is guaranteed to be within 90 days of the wedding. However this depends on the season. Winter and early Spring weddings normally receive their wedding photos and videos earlier.


Why should I purchase an album?

Viewing photos on the computer and flipping through them on an album are two completely different experiences. Let Vitor design your album for you, don’t trust those Groupon deals for low-end album companies who don’t offer design. Most of them deliver albums with poor print quality and will not compare with a professionally designed album printed by a world renowned printing lab in New York. Vitor only uses the best materials and labs in the country. Purchasing an album with Vitor will save you time, money and give you the piece of mind of knowing your wedding photos will be treated with the care they deserve by the artist who created them.


Will you do a blog post about our wedding?

Not all weddings go up on our blog. This depends on the amount of work we have at any given time.


How can we share the wedding photos and/or videos with our friends?

We will upload an online gallery with your photos where you can share with everyone. This gallery will allow them to order prints as well.
