FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: “How do I get in touch?”

A: I really hope this page was useful but of course, the quickest way to get to know all the answers to the questions you might have is to get in touch via my website here or email me at info@derekbogdanphotography.com, better yet give me a call 204-688-7055, I’d love to chat.

Q: “How do I book you for my wedding?”

A:The first step is to get in touch with me. We will schedule a consult in person or on Skype to hear more about you, your story, your plans and how you want the story of your wedding day told. You’ll get a feel for whether I’m the right individual, the ideal personality and the best photographer for your specific needs and vision.

Q: “Do you help us plan our wedding itinerary?”

A: Of course! Wedding schedule is essential. Together we will create a schedule that will help ensure timing is arranged accurately on your wedding day. Things like formal and backup locations, travel time are discussed prior to your wedding.

Q: “ Do you travel out of town to photograph weddings?”

A: Absolutely, I’m happy to come to your town/city or meet at a destination of your choice. I actively seek out Destination Weddings!

Q: “ How do you charge for destination weddings?”

A: Even for local weddings I charge based on your requirements, so every wedding is different. There are obviously extra costs such as travel and accommodation that must be covered by the clients with a Destination Wedding.

Q: “Are you insured?”

A: Yes, absolutely.

Q: “ What are your basic payment terms?”

A: In addition to a signed contract, I require 50% of the total agreed fee as a non-refundable retainer to secure me for your wedding date. The remaining balance is due week of your wedding.

Q: “How many photos do we get?”

A: attempt to deliver quality over quantity and I would rather give you a smaller collection of photos that you won’t stop looking at rather than a large amount of “pretty good” images. Depending on hours of coverage, my wedding couples will receive 400-1000 images.

Q: “ When do we receive our photos?”

A: My average delivery time for the full gallery of images is 4 to 6 weeks. 

Q: “Are the images you deliver to us edited?”

A: Absolutely, I would never deliver a RAW or un-edited files to my client. After I have selected the final images for delivery, I then edit each file individually before converting to a jpeg file, which you will receive on usb media or via download.

Q: “Do you offer wedding albums?”

A: Yes I offer one of a kind hand crafted custom luxury album. Every album is handmade, with particular care and attention dedicated to every detail. You can view samples of albums at your consult, I’ll even show you a video how these albums are made. You can also see more info HERE.
