What is the resolution of the pictures?
Please notice that all the pictures on this website are low resolution so that
they don't take too long to download, especially on slow connections. The actual
prints and photos on CD are of very high quality and resolution. The
cameras we use have a resolution of 8.2 MP. Please email or
call us for a free consultation to show you our portfolio.
We are all about backups! For one, having two photographers not only allows us to provide more coverage
and different angles, but also serves the
additional purpose of each camera acting as a backup for the other. We capture
all the traditional, artistic, and romantic pictures with both cameras. If something
were to happen to a memory card, we would still have all the pictures from the
other camera. We
also carry backup equipment (extra cameras and flashes in case there was a
problem with the equipment during the event). We also archive copies of your
photographs both on-site and off-site for increased reliability. We keep
two separate copies of your files on each location. Finally, we have backup photographers for the extremely
unlikely event that either photographer is too ill to photograph your event.
How many pictures do we take?
don't limit ourselves on how many pictures we take. We will be shooting as long
as we are there. The averages depend on the package naturally. For instance in
the deluxe package we take on average 1500 to 2500 pictures! In the standard package on average we take
anywhere between 1000 and 1800 pictures.
there a time limit?
We'll be there for as long as you want us, including entire day coverage. We
don't overbook ourselves, so we reserve the entire day for your event. See
the price list for the hourly rate.
How about engagement pictures?
We do engagement, rehearsal dinner, getting-ready pictures, portraits, you name
It's your time and you decide how to use it. One hour minimum.
is no problem. A small fee may apply outside the extended Sacramento area.
Is the tax included in the price list?
Tax is not included in the price list. The tax
rate is 7.25%.
What are the advantages of digital over film?
With digital we can check each picture as soon as
we take it and make sure everyone has their eyes open; if not, we can always
retake it right away. With digital we can adjust the speed (light sensitivity)
on a frame- per-frame basis as opposed to film where once we have loaded a film
of a certain speed we have to shoot the entire roll with that particular speed.
Finally with digital we can archive several copies of the pictures on different
locations for increased reliability.
Is digital less expensive for us?
Not really. What we save on film we spend on hard
disk storage for picture archival. Some weddings can take as much as 25GB of
hard disk space, and we keep two copies on-site and two copies off-site for
guaranteed survivability of the photographs.
