FAQs: Wedding Coverage and Packages

How far in advance are you booking dates?

Sacred Harbor Photography typically books 2 days to 1-2 years in advance. Reach out to inquire if your date is available.

How long have you been photographing weddings?

Our team has been photographing weddings since 2016.

How do you work at weddings? (Candids, comfortable prompting/posing, journalistic)

All of the above! We'll help you pose with suggestions and prompts, capture candid moments, and take photojournalistic photos to tell the story of the whole day.

How would you describe your artistic style?

Bright, colorful, and timeless. We capture the day as it is (we're not going to photoshop in sunshine on a stormy/cloudy day. We love keeping the colors vibrant and true-to-life.

Can you share full wedding galleries with us?

Of course! Please send us an email (sacredharborphoto@Gmail.com) and we'd be happy to send you recent full galleries.

If we hire you for only a part of the day, will you book other events that day?

Weddings over 4 hours are exclusive bookings for that day and photographer/photography team.

What's included in your pricing?

Although it depends on the specific wedding package, the basics included in each package are:

- The duration of coverage for the # of photographers

- Online gallery

- Download of online gallery (as many times as you'd like) of high resolution images

Are there travel fees?

It depends on where the photographer is traveling to. We don't charge for travel within 2 hours of Portland, Oregon. If the celebration/event is in the evening, we may need to account for overnight accommodations.

How many photos can I expect to receive for X # of hours or per hour?

The number of images included in your online gallery will vary based on the duration of the coverage, number of photographers, and the logistics/timeline of the day. For instance, if there's a lot of walking between locations during an hour, you may receive fewer photos that during formals or reception coverage. We typically average 50-75 photos per hour for final gallery delivery.

Do you retouch the photos? To what extent? If I have a favorite photo, will you perfect it before I print it?

We do retouch the photos. The owner, Daniela, is the editor for the entire business, regardless of which photographer provides the coverage, to maintain consistency of the editing style. Basic corrections to lighting and color will be performed before the gallery is delivered. For close-up photos, temporary blemishes may be removed if requested. If you have a favorite photo you'd like to print, we will absolutely perform additional editing if you let us know.

* More extensive editing, like face swaps, removal of people or backgrounds, etc., may require additional time and a surcharge.

Do you have a contract I can read over?

Absolutely. Please send us an email at sacredharborphoto@gmail.com and we'll send you one!

What other services do you offer? Engagement sessions, boudoir sessions, etc.?

All types of photography! We do portraits, parties, boudoir, pets, corporate events, head shots, you name it! We also offer albums as add-ons for wedding packages.

Are rehearsal dinners included in the price?

Rehearsal dinners are typically not included in the wedding packages, but can be added on as a regular portrait session.
