FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We thought you were based in NYC. Where are you located?
You probably found me because Sincerely, Emelia used to be located in NYC. Although I've moved to Orlando, FL, we'll always be offering our services to the NYC metro area. To view NYC pricing, click here.
Are you available for destination weddings?
I love to travel and we are definitely available for destination weddings! I also offer services in other states. Sincerely, Emelia has been proud to book 2016 weddings in NYC, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Canada.
When should we book our wedding?
I typically book weddings 6-12 months in advance, but if I am available on your date you can book whenever you're ready - even if that's just one week before!
What is your turnaround rate for sessions? How about weddings?
The best part about booking me is knowing you'll have your photos within 2-3 weeks. Even sooner for portrait sessions! Although my contract allows a couple of months (in case a bad event happens), my average turnaround is just 10 days.
What makes your work different from other photographers?
I take all of my photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. My sessions are always candid and fun!
Will we get the print release to our photos after our wedding?
Yes! Upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release.
How many photographers will there be at our wedding?
Depending on the package you book, you'll have just me or me + a second photographer. You'll always be able to add on a second or third to your package.
Is there a required retainer?
In order to hold your date, I require a 50% non-refundable retainer at the time of booking.
Can we create a custom package?
I can definitely work with you to create a custom package that is tailored to your needs! Please keep in mind that this is my livelihood and career, and that I will need to work with a reasonable budget to book your date.
Do you photograph elopements?
Of course! Depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, I have special rates for weekday weddings and elopements. You can find more info here!
Do I have to order prints through you?
We highly recommend ordering printed products through a professional lab, but it is not required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional vendor, so we encourage clients to let us help with prints.
What equipment do you use?
We use updated Canon equipment. I personally always carry two Canon 6D bodies, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lens, among other items. All of our cameras and lenses have backups in the rare event anything should happen to one of our pieces.
