What should we wear?

 WC Imagery recommends you have two (2) looks.  One look should be casual, the other dressy.  Your outfits do not have to match or be coordinated, but it does look nice if you choose to do so. 

How long should we expect our session to be?

You should expect your session to be approximately an hour to an hour and a half.  WC

Imagery will not end the session until we feel we have the impact shots we are looking for. 

Can we do our session on the weekend?

90% of the sessions are done Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Depending on the availability of the photographer. Friday-Sunday are rare because we are photographing events, but please ask and we can tell you if its even possible depending on the time you would like to shoot.

Uh, Oh!! We’re running late!

WC Imagery wants to make sure you do not miss a minute of your shoot.  We often have more than 1 shoot per day, and we want to be sure each of our clients get all the time they need to get great shots.  Running late will cut into your shoot time, which means less pictures; this is no different from your wedding day.  We also understand that sometimes situations happen that cause us to run late.  Whether it’s your fault, the makeup/hair team, traffic, or any other situation, please let us know at least 45 minutes before your shoot so we can plan accordingly.  We may need to adjust our meeting point to accommodate for lighting issues.

What if we need to cancel/reschedule?

If you need to cancel or reschedule, please do so more than one week in advance.  Any cancellation or rescheduling done within 7 days of the shoot will incur a fee of $350. (Regardless if the engagement session  was included in your collection/Package.)

What if  bad weather is predicted?

We are not responsible for bad weather.  The shoot will be honored unless weather is causing extreme danger to travel (i.e. roads closed due to snow storm).  Keep in mind, this is just like your wedding day...we can't reschedule that due to a little rain! We always recommend you choose a location that has some option for indoor/under cover area, but it is not necessary (even thou you ask us to suggest a location, its still your responsibility to look into the location). If you choose to reschedule your shoot because of the weather, or any other reason, please see above, "What if we need to cancel/reschedule?"

Where should we do our shoot?

We can do your shoot wherever you would like.  Below is a list of popular places for engagement shoots.  Please keep in mind that some of these places have fees and/or restrictions.  It is YOUR responsibility to obtain any permits, reservations etc. prior to the soot.  Be sure to tell them it is a PERSONAL shoot, not commercial. 

Parking Fees
