Frequently Asked Questions
What primary photographic style do you identify with? Our style is a fusion of photojournalistic along with a modern casually posed flair. We approach each wedding as a love story waiting to be captured. We believe in preserving all the beautiful details of your wedding to complete your story. We love to photograph everyone having the time of their lives celebrating your love as a married couple. We also understand there is a time during the day to direct and lightly pose you both, along with the family for those must have family formals. We would not want any upset parents and we stay true to the immediate family portraits; that we all have come to love over the years. Our images are authentic and timeless.
Do you offer Video? We sure do! Check out our video website: https://www.palmbeachweddingfilms.com
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations? Yes, we are experienced photographers and can work in all types of lighting situations. Whether rain or shine, day or night a wedding must go on and we pride ourselves in the ability to capture amazing images regardless of the elements presented to us.
Can we see an entire wedding from start to finish? Absolutely! This is one of the most important things you can ask your photographer. Wedding photographers need to work fast and be able to shoot in any type of lighting situation. We are seasoned, experienced wedding photographers and know the ins and outs of the unpredictable moment driven nature of weddings. We love it and are happy to showcase any love story you would like to see.
What do the wedding collections include? Our wedding collections are à la carte, which gives you the freedom to custom design the collection that will best suit your needs.
Do you provide the digital files to the client? The high-resolution files (the digital equivalent of negatives) are included in all wedding overage. The files are delivered via a private online gallery that is viewable worldwide and compatible with PC’s, MAC and smartphones.
Do you have liability insurance? Yes, we do and we’ll be happy to provide your venue with a proof of coverage if needed.
Do you Travel? We do! We are based in Palm Beach, FL and Tennessee. Although many of our weddings are in Florida and Tennessee, we love to travel wherever you would like to take us. We have photographed weddings in Maine, Cape Cod, The Bahamas, The Keys, and our most favorite magical location Disney World Wedding Pavilion. Please contact Stacey for more details.
Have you photographed at my venue? We have photographed at many venues over the past 9 years so there is a good chance we have. However, if not, we always arrive extra early on your wedding day to do a walk through to find the best locations based on backdrop and lighting. We also research your venue online prior to your wedding day.
Do you travel to meet clients? Due to our busy wedding schedule, I am unable to travel to meet with clients. If you would like to set up a meeting, I am available for a video chat and/or phone call. Please text me at 561.801.3201 or email me a time that is best for you. I am looking forward to discussing all of your wedding details.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of? We carry over $20,000 in professional camera equipment to every event we photograph. We have multiple lenses and camera bodies as backups in case of a malfunction.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? Of course, we are. All wedding coverage begins with 8 hours. This coverage fits us best to properly capture your wedding and not miss any priceless moments. We offer a hands-on approach to photography and work with you very closely to design a perfect schedule for your wedding day. If more wedding day coverage is needed we will be happy to add it on for an additional fee.
Who will be photographing my wedding? The photographers are always Stacey or Brandon Poirier.
Can I send you photos from Pinterest or any other websites? We prefer not. The only photo list we work from is for the family photos. We approach each wedding photographically as it naturally unfolds. We will miss too many priceless and unique moments if we are photographing from a list. We do not copy other photographers’ work. The photos you will receive on your wedding day will be consistent with our portfolio. Please visit our blog to view our most recent work.
Do you require that the client provide your meal? We are so grateful when our clients feed us. This ensures we stay alert, happy, and do not get weak and tired from hunger. We prefer to be feed while you are eating and not after, because once you are finished the party continues and we do not want to miss any moment. Plus, you are not your most photogenic while eating.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos? Yes, for promotional purposes we may feature your wedding on our blog or the business social media. The links can be found on our website. We are respectful with the images we select to feature. As the artist, we do hold the copyright because we are the creators of the images. We do include a release with the high-resolution files. This will give you permission to make reprints by any lab you prefer to use. The release will give you the ability to share your images with whomever you choose as well.
Do you blog every wedding and engagement session? We would love to showcase every wedding and engagement shoot on our blog, but due to our high volume it just is not possible.
Do we need a wedding album and what kind of albums do you offer? There is something about holding a photograph in your hands. It connects you physically to the feelings of a time and place that an image on a screen cannot. Your wedding album is important because it is a tangible link to your wedding day. Yes, digital files are a must have but a beautifully handcrafted album is a permanent heirloom you will enjoy and pass down. You will cherish it more and more with each passing year. We carry top of the line handcrafted Italian wedding albums with options of covers, paper, and coordinating accessories for you to choose from.
What do you do for photos if it rains on our wedding day? First, we grab the umbrella to capture some really cool images of you both. Then we search for a location inside your venue that will make for a beautiful backdrop for your wedding images.
