Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use a second photographer?

It depends on the size of the wedding and the needs of the bride and groom. Generally, when ordering a la carte, we do not offer the services of a second photographer. Please feel free to bring this up during our meeting so we can provide you with everything you need.

Will we meet you prior to our wedding day?
Yes, I generally meet the Bride & Groom before they book me. Some couples from out of state will book me over the phone if a meeting cannot occur before their wedding date. I try to be flexible when scheduling a meeting so both parties are not inconvenienced.

What size will the images on the DVD be?
Every photograph includes a RAW and High Quality JPEG format.  This allows images to reprinted at any size without compromising the quality of the image, and allows for the printer to fine-tune the color correction on site.

May we increase the size or number of pages in our wedding album?
Yes, I welcome customization to any album.

How many weddings do you photograph each weekend?
During the busy season of May through October I usually photograph one , on rare occasions two, weddings per weekend. I will only photograph ONE wedding per day.

Do you charge extra for editing?
No, all editing is included in your package price. There are no hidden fees.

May we decide to order an album after our wedding?
Yes, some couples will wait to order an album until they’ve seen all of their wedding photos. Other couples will order the base size album and then choose to increase the number of pages to fit more photographs in later on.

How much does it cost for album design?
The cost of editing and album design is already included in the prices of the albums.

How far will you travel for a wedding job?
Most of my weddings are in the New England and New York area. However, I also do Destination Weddings, that may take place anywhere in the world. If you are planning to get married somewhere far from home and would like to take me with you, please get in touch with us via email or phone.

Do you photograph with digital equipment or film?
I shoot all weddings with two digital SLR cameras, and two film SLR cameras for those brides and grooms that want both color and black and white negatives in addition to digital images.

Should we provide our photographer with a meal at our reception?
Yes, please. Generally I sit at the vendor table at the reception, but I am happy to be placed wherever it’s convenient!

What do you do if it rains?
We bring along extremely large umbrellas. We also find spots to photograph that give the illusion of you being outside like on decks and in doorways.

How may our family, friends and wedding guests view and purchase photos from our wedding?
Each wedding we photograph will be posted through a link from our website where you and all of your wedding guests may view your wedding photographs. They can order prints on line from Alison Redlich Photography or they can ask you to make a print for them as you will receive a DVD with all of your photographs and full printing rights.

How long does it usually take to get our photographs after our wedding?
It will take up to two weeks to see your images after the wedding. Once your reprint choices are made for your album(s), it can take up to six to eight weeks to return your wedding album in its finished form.

How do we book a wedding with Alison Redlich Photography?
When one of our clients decide to book us for their wedding date we email them a contract with all of their package information listed as well as the dates and times agreed upon. The Bride and Groom review the contract, print it, fill out any additional information and mail it in along with a  non-refundable 50% deposit. Once both the contract and deposit have been received you are officially booked.

Our church/ceremony official does not allow flash photography during the ceremony, how do you work around that?
I try to use the flash sparingly during the ceremony. I have a variety of lenses on my digital cameras that are very capable in low light situations. Regardless, please ask your church/ceremony official to speak to both of us so we can work out an arrangement that suits everyone.
