FAQ’s

Do you travel for weddings? Yes, I do! I live in Eugene, Oregon and most of my weddings for 2017 are out of state. I love traveling and I offer discounted rates for all wedding packages outside of Oregon. I do require my flight & accommodations are taken care of on top of my wedding packages.

Do we get the digital files? Yes, you will receive all of the final edited images on a custom wooden USB for weddings. I also will upload your photos to a online gallery, where you can choose to order prints from.

Do you use a second shooter? A second shooter is included in my largest wedding package. Though I normally shoot weddings alone, I always bring an assistant to help throughout the day. I am completely comfortable photographing a wedding on my own.

What kind of equipment do you use? Do you have a backup? I use 2 Canon 5D Mark iii’s, 35L, 85L, 50L, 100L & 45mm tilt. I have a backup Canon 6D in my gear bag just in case.

Do you offer engagement photos with your wedding collections? Yes! An engagement session is included in all my wedding packages. It’s such a great time for us to get to know each other before the wedding. It’s very important for the bride & groom to feel comfortable with me and the camera. I’ve noticed that after doing an engagement session, the wedding photos seem to go so much smoother & more fun compared to if you had opted out.

Do you backup our images after the wedding day? My camera automatically writes to two cards while shooting, and I backup to two externals + online storage after downloading to my computer.

Should we send you a shot list? Other than a list for family photos, I prefer to shoot without one. I love being able to capture the day as I see it. If there are really specific shots that I wouldn’t have been able to capture without your input, then yes please tell me!

Can we post our photos to social media? OMG yes! Please do. I love seeing what clients decide to post what, it makes my day. I do ask though, if you could refrain from re-editing, cropping, adding filters, I would greatly appreciate that! I’ve worked my butt off to edit your photos, and make them look magical! Ps. I’d love it if you could tag me also!

How far in advance do we need to book? I prefer to book at least 2 months for portraits, but if I have the date free it’s all yours. Most weddings are booked within a few months to over a year!

How do we book!? Go through my contact form on my website, or email me at hello@dawn-photography.com and we can take the rest from there! Cannot wait to work with you!
