Frequently Asked Questions

______________________________________________________________________________

PRE-WEDDING

1. We are interested!  How do we book our wedding with you?

Thank you for your interest in Sophan Theam Photography!  The next step would be to fill out and sign a wedding photography agreement.  Let me know that you are ready to book your wedding and I will email you a pdf file that can either be posted or emailed back to me once it is filled out.  Also, a 30% deposit is required to retain the date.  (No deposits are required for portrait sessions.)

2. What methods of payment do you accept?

A check, paypal, credit card, cash, and money order are all acceptable forms of payment.

3.  When and where should we have our engagement session pictures taken?

One hour before sunrise or sunset is the ideal lighting setting for beautiful, golden hour photography.  This is the magic hour for incredible, majestic natural light.  Of course, if these times won’t work, we can schedule any time during the day, ideally, before it gets dark. However, additional lighting equipment is available for night scenes.  I recommend every couple to choose a setting that best fits their personality.  The beach, park, garden, lake, river, city setting (for example Ybor or Downtown Tampa), or even home setting are some great options.  If you are planning to use the engagement pictures for save the date cards, wedding invitations, or as a part of your wedding decor, then coordinating the engagement session to match a specific theme or location is also a wonderful idea.  This can be done with appropriate clothing style and matching props.

4.  What should we wear for our engagement session?

I believe the best images are a result of  your personality shining through.  I recommend bringing three different outfits to change into: dressy (something you would wear in the evening to a nice restaurant), classy (something you would wear during the day on a fun date), and casual.  The more textures and ruffles, the better.  Dressing in sync with one another is also a great idea.  Ultimately, the decision is up to you.  I recommend getting your hair and makeup done professionally prior to the shoot.  What better time to schedule your trial wedding makeup and hair than during the day of your e-session.

5. My wedding venue requires my photographer to be insured.  Are you insured?

Definitely!  I am insured by PPA.  (Professional Photographers of America)

6. Do you charge for travel?

I do not charge for travel if your wedding is in the Tampa or surrounding area, such as Sarasota and Orlando.  Within the wedding day,  I do not charge additional travel fees from one location to another, such as from the hotel room to the ceremony location.  However, traveling time between locations will be counted as a part of the coverage time.

WEDDING

7.  What is a wedding day timeline?

A wedding timeline plays a vital piece of your big day.  It plays a very large part in helping the wedding day run smoothly. I recommend that a copy of the timeline be emailed to me at least a month in advance. Also, it’s a great idea for all of the vendors involved to have a copy as well.  Here is an example of one:

1:00 pm – Bride gets ready
2:00 pm – Bridal portraits
2:30 pm – Bride and individual bridesmaid portraits
2:45 pm – Groom gets ready
3:00 pm – Groom portraits
3:15 pm – Groom and individual groomsmen portraits
3:30 pm – First look
4:00 pm – Ceremony begins
4:30 pm – Family portraits  / Cocktail hour begins
5:00 pm – Bridal party portraits
5:15 pm – Bride and groom portraits
6:00 pm – Wedding party enters reception
6:15 pm – First dance, followed by bride and father dance, and groom and mother dance
6:30 pm – Salad is served  /  Toasts
7:00 pm – Dinner is served
8:00 pm – Cake cutting
8:30 pm – Bouquet/ Garter Toss
9:00 pm – Open dance floor

8. What is a family portrait shot list?

Please believe me when I say, crowd control during family portraits on a wedding day can be very chaotic. However, a shot list can really help orchestrate the flow of family portraits as well as save everyone a lot of time. Right after the ceremony, when everyone is most attentive, we will gather at the most scenic location nearby and start with a large group picture. The first formal picture can either be the entire guest list, depending on the number of people attending, or the entire family. From there, we will weed out the crowd one by one. Here is an example of a family portrait shot list.

1. Bride, Groom, and All of the Guests
2. Bride, Groom, and All of the Family (those who aren’t family will step out)
3. Bride, Groom, and All of the Bride’s family (everyone else will step out)
4. Bride, Groom, and Bride’s Grandparents
5. Bride, Groom, and Bride’s Parents
6. Bride and Bride’s Parents
7. Bride and Bride’s Mom
8. Bride and Groom and Bride’s Siblings
9. Bride, Groom, and All of the Groom’s family
10. Bride, Groom, and Groom’s Grandparents
11. Bride, Groom, and Groom’s Parents
12. Bride, Groom, and Groom’s Siblings
13. Bride, Groom, and Groom’s Uncle Billy Bob … etc.

I recommend that a close family friend is designated to gather family members around according to this list, as he or she will already be familiar with everyone.

9. What if our wedding is behind schedule and we need you to stay later than we agreed upon?

That shouldn’t be a problem (and believe me, this is a very common circumstance).  If coverage time is suppose to end at 9:00 pm but you need me to stay until 9:30 or 10 pm instead, you will be charged for that extra half hour or hour (however long you need me to stay) after the wedding is over.  An invoice will be sent afterwards via email.

POST-WEDDING

10.  Do you edit all of the images from a wedding?

Absolutely!  Ok, well, aside from any duplicates, out of focus images, funny faces, or blinky eyes, I edit all of the pictures my assistant and I photograph and these are what you will see for your wedding gallery.

11.  What is your turnaround time?

My average turnaround time for weddings and portrait sessions is three weeks.  On a busy month, I may take a little more time, but, I have never exceeded four weeks.  I know you are excited to see your photographs, just as I am excited to show them to you, so I will make sure to work hard to deliver your images as soon as possible.  If you pre-ordered a wedding album, this will take more time, however, you will still have all of your high resolution images no later than 3 – 4 weeks after your wedding day.

12.  Can I get my wedding and engagement photos printed out myself?  Do I have to order the prints through you?

All of my sessions, whether they are weddings, events, engagements, or portrait sessions will come with a copyright release form.  Also, the images provided will be in high resolution and will be printer-ready for any size.  You will be able to print them anywhere you’d like as long as you have this form with you.

13.  Can we post our images on facebook or other social media (like myspace?)?

Absolutely! Although I will send you some pictures that are already re-sized and formatted for facebook, please make sure you do the same before posting. Pictures that are not re-sized for the web will look pixelated and distorted. I would absolutely appreciate it if you would credit the photographer as well. That would mean the world to me! Thank you.
