Your Questions Answered
1. How long does it take for us to receive our wedding photos?
You will receive a private link to your wedding photo gallery 3 weeks after your wedding. At this point you can download and share them with friends and family.
2. Will our images be edited?
Yes, each image will be hand edited to make it look its best. This includes enhancements, colour correction, cropping etc.
3. Do we get our photos in colour or black and white?
Most of your wedding day images will be provided to you in colour, but we do usually change some of them into black and white if we think it looks better. If you would prefer the colour versions, we are happy to provide those to you.
4. How should I save my photos?
Once you have downloaded your photos it is best to save them onto an external hard drive which you should back up in at least one other place such as a reputable cloud service (we use Dropbox) or a second external hard drive which should be stored in a place other than your home. Also, please note that the lifespan of external hard drives can be limited so it’s a good idea to transfer the photos to a new one every few years.
5. Should we print any of our wedding portraits?
Definitely! If you really want to preserve your wedding portraits we encourage you to print them. Over time digital copies and hard drives may fail and your photos will be lost forever. A printed portrait will last a lifetime!
6. Can we print our own photos or should we get you to do it?
Your portraits are delivered to you ready to print on your own. However, if you choose us to print the portraits for you, each image will receive another level of retouching and will be custom printed on archival paper using the highest quality materials.
7. How much time does it take to do the formal portraits on our wedding day?
We recommend allowing 1.5 - 2 hours for formal portraits. If your timeline allows and you would like to spend more time that’s great! We typically start with the family photos and then proceed to doing photos with your bridal party and then just the two of you.
8. We have some photo ideas for our wedding, are you open to to that?
Yes, we encourage your input so if you have any ideas, just let us know and we’ll do our best.
9. What if it rains or the weather is not cooperating?
We will make a back up plan with you just in case the weather is bad. This would involve either doing the photos at our studio or reserving an indoor location in advance. Other possibilities could include using the ceremony location or hotel/reception area if applicable.
10. Who’s in charge of booking an indoor backup location?
If you decide to book a back up location, we ask that you take care of this. We are always happy to recommend a place.
11. Do you charge for travel outside of Edmonton?
If your wedding is more than 1/2 hour from Edmonton there maybe an additional fee to cover our expenses.
12. How long have you been in business, and are you licensed and insured?
We have been photographing weddings for over 20 years and have been a licensed business with the city of Edmonton since the beginning. We are fully insured including enhanced liability coverage. We are also an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau and the Professional Photographers of Canada.
13. What if you are sick or can’t photograph our wedding at the last minute?
We are happy to say that with the hundreds of weddings we have photographed, we have never missed one! That being said we must always expect the unexpected. We are aligned with other professional photographers and would arrange for an equally qualified photographer to step in to photograph your wedding.
14. What kind of equipment do you use?
We use professional Canon equipment and have extensive backups ready to go in case we need it.
15. What will you be wearing at our wedding?
We pride ourselves on being highly professional at all times and this includes our attire. We typically wear dark coloured dress pants and a dark or neutral coloured dress shirt along with a nice (and comfortable!) pair of shoes.
16. Do we need to provide meals to both of you at the reception?
If we are photographing your reception, it is greatly appreciated but not a requirement.
17. What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, e-transfer, cheque and cash.
We cannot thank you enough for being there on our special day taking pictures of moments that will now last a lifetime. The two of you are an incredible team and your differences in style (and personality!) are what makes Viewpoint Photography a step above all other companies I have seen. So thank you, thank you, thank you! - Leah & Lyndon Hodgins
From the first time we met Chad and Janine we felt very comfortable with them and soon considered them friends. They were open to all of our suggestions and requests and really went out of their way to meet all of our needs. We got wonderful formal shots and many exceptional candid shots that we both love. We look forward to having Chad and Janine take our pictures as our family grows throughout the years! - Nicole & Kevin Kunetzki
I want to thank you for capturing our wedding day. Almost a year has passed and our pictures have become more and more valuable to us. Our memories of that day are kept fresh as we look back at the wonderful photographs that the two of you took. Our pictures show creativity, fun and elegance and are a real reflection of who we are as a couple, with all the love and laughter that we share together. The investment into having a photographer for our wedding was a big decision, we met a lot of photographers and we knew right away that you would be great… and you were! Out of all the time and preparation that went into our wedding our decision to choose Viewpoint Photography to capture a once in a lifetime day was by far the most valuable investment we could have made. We thank you with all our hearts. - Kevin & Lindsay Visser

Thank you! - Lincoln & Shari Hands
