q: what makes you stand out?

A: Most photographers show up and shoot—I like to work a little differently and make sure I know you & your fiancee personally. What makes you tick? What are your favorite shots? Basically, my #1 priority is you. As far as our vibe, our sessions (especially your wedding day) will always be candid, relaxed and fun!

 

q: will we get the printing rights to our photos after the wedding? 

A: Yes! Upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release. I definitely have my preferences (your photos will never look as good as when they come from a professional printer!), but you are free to get them printed wherever you'd like.

 

q: how do we know our photos are safe?

A: I am an obsessive photo protector! I shoot on two SD cards at once, so that if one fails, the other is there. I back up to both an external hard drive and my computer, and never delete unedited files (from either the cards or anywhere else) until I have delivered your wedding photos! I know how important this day is, so I take every precaution.

 

q: will we receive every photo you take?

A: I tend to shoot a lot…just to make sure I get that absolutely perfect shot! That being said, I will only give you the best moments from your wedding. If you're half-blinking, blurry, or it's simply just not a flattering photo, I won't include it in your gallery.

Don't worry though—I am always looking for the perfect candids, and fun, in-between-moments shots are some of my favorites to deliver.

 

q: what sort of equipment do you use?

A: My second shooters and I use the latest equipment! We are consistently updating and adding to our collections. Right now, I primarily use a Nikon D750 and Sigma Art-Series lenses. We use a variety of lenses to ensure your day is captured perfectly!

 

q: i love what i'm reading…how can i officially book you?!

A: Shoot me an email at howdy@ariellevalenzuela.com, and I'd love to chat with you more about booking. A retainer and signed contract are both required in order to get officially official! The remaining balance is due three weeks before your wedding, but you can pay it off any time you'd like in as many installments as you'd like.
