Q: Can you tell me about the packages you offer?
A: We try to make this as simple as possible by offering 5 comprehensive Collections. Please contact our studio to setup a consultation.
Did I say comprehensive? All collections include a pre-wedding consultation, 2 photographers on your wedding day, a dvd of images and custom handmade albums.
Our starting Collection includes:
– complete coverage by two photojournalist on wedding day
– online proofing and ordering
– an online image gallery for sharing images with friends and family
– a drive with high resolution digital files with Reprint Release
Our photo coverage is as unique as our brides. Please contact us with the details of your wedding day and we will custom build coverage specifically for your day. All of our brides have something in common: they realize that photographs are the only things that remain long after their wedding day. Real moments are either captured or they are not. There are no retakes. Anything less than phenomenal photographs will be mediocre for them, their children and their grandchildren.
Q: Tell me about your Wedding Albums.
A: We’ve partnered with the best book makers in the world to bring you custom coffee table books showcasing photos of your choosing. Designs are infinitely customizable- no two are alike. Fine Leather, Glass and Metal (if this is your speed) covers complement your style. Show us your house. Tell us what you want. Draw it on a napkin if you want. We will make it happen.
Q: How do we reserve you if we want to use you?
A: Please make sure we are available. We book on a first come first served basis and many prime dates book over a year in advance. If we are available, a signed Date Reservation Form and a $2000 Retainer are required to block your date and make it unavailable to other brides.
Q: We are not really sure what collection we want/need. Can we pick one and change it later?
A: There is a ton of pressure from everyone else already- no need to have us add to that. It’s simple. You book us and we block your “day.” We will fill out a contract no later than 30 days before your wedding (once all timelines are in place) and we will discuss specifics then. You may decide on 14 hours of coverage or maybe just 6- rest assured that you are our only bride that day.
Q: How will you interact with us on our wedding day?
A: Think of us as very talented guests. We will interact with you and the party during portraits and formals (when things may get awkward). Few of us like to have our picture taken. While the majority of what we do is capture candid, fun, unscripted moments, sometimes it may be you and a camera. We will direct but not orchestrate moments. We will do our best to capture you in your most favorable light. Sometimes it is best to relax you with a joke than ask you to roll your shoulder forward and relax your jaw. Most importantly, we will shoot until we feel we have it. As photographers, we have healthy egos and something to prove.
Q: Can we give you a shot list?
A: We would love a shot list for formals (especially if they include MeeMaw and PawPaw’s real names). It speeds up the process and keeps everybody happy and on schedule. We do not, however, need the shot list from the photo section of you favorite weddings magazine given to us on your wedding day. If you love us and our style, trust that we will get all those shots without prompting.
Q: Do You travel?
Q: I really want you, but you’re out of our price range, what can I do?
A: Some weddings are simple, elegant and intimate and even our first collection offers more than is needed. To address the needs of these brides we have launched our sister company, Simply White Photo. Simply White offers a-la-carte services and pricing while maintaining the same signature style that many seek with Ace Cuervo Photography. No surprises, it is staffed by the same photojournalists that shoot for me here.
Q: Did I hear somewhere that you also make cakes?
A: Nope- wrong Ace.
