How can I see more of your portfolio?
On our website you will see some of our favorite photos from weddings, engagements, and bridal portraits we have shot. Our blog has our latest and most recent sessions. If you want to see a real wedding, from start to finish, definitely take a look at the blog!
How can I find out your availability?
Give us a call at 713.961.2840 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most couples book us for their wedding about 6-9 months in advance, so keep that in mind when calling us for availability.
How can I book?
First, contact us directly, either by phone, or by filling out the form on our contact page. We will then check to make sure we have your wedding day available, then set up a time for you to come in for a consultation. We really prefer to sit down and meet with a couple before we officially book anything. This gives us the opportunity to get to know you and for you to get to know us. This will ensure that you are comfortable with us and with our style of photography. This will also give us a chance to discuss exactly what you are looking for as far as wedding photography, so that we can customize a package specifically for you.
What does it take to book our date, officially?
If you’ve met with us and have decided that you would like to officially book us for your wedding, we will draw up a contract for you to sign. With the signed contract we require a deposit in the amount of 1/3 of your contract. Once you know for sure that you want to book us, let us know as soon as possible so we can get all of this taken care of before your date becomes unavailable.
Do I own the copyright to my images?
Select Studios holds the copyright to all images taken. Your DVD of wedding images will include the rights to print the photos. This gives you permission to make prints or to post them on your Facebook page, etc. This release of rights is specific to you only and it cannot be sold or transferred to anyone else.
Will you travel?
We love to travel and have done so many times to shoot destination weddings. Some places we have shot include New Orleans, California, Greece, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Cabo San Lucas, and The Bahamas. No destination is too far for us!
How many photographers will my Wedding have?
You have the option of adding a second photographer to each of our wedding packages. However, if you choose to go with just one photographer, he will most likely bring an assistant with him.
How many images do you usually take at Weddings?
We average about 1000-1500 images at the wedding. After editing and picking out the best images, you’ll end up with somewhere between 600-800 images. The amount of images taken will depend greatly on the circumstances and the amount of coverage. You will definitely end up with all of the best ones!
How long will it take to get my prints once I've ordered them?
Our turn around time for print orders is usually about 7-10 days.
What should we wear for our engagement session?
First and foremost, be yourself! Everyone has their own unique style, and your engagement photos should show your personal style. Secondly, don’t try too hard to match. You can coordinate with your fiancé, but you don’t want to be too “matchy matchy”. Also, be sure to wear items that are functional, comfortable and fit your personality well. Layers are always a good thing, as well as accessories such as necklaces, scarves or cute heels for the ladies, and hats or jackets for the guys. Don’t be afraid to incorporate a little color into your outfits, but stay away from any patterns that might clash with each other. If you want, you can bring a few different outfits and we can help narrow it down to the best looks. Your engagement session will usually consist of 2-3 outfits, and one is normally a bit more formal than the other. And please bring any props you may want to incorporate into your session! Anything that might add a personal touch to your photos, something that is unique to you as a couple, or maybe something that’s just fun! If you have any ideas, let us know and we might be able to help find some fun props for you to use.If you can’t think of anything specific, don’t worry about it, we will get some great shots whether you have props or not.

How long after our Wedding should I expect to see my photos?
We will send you a sneak peek of your photos about 2-3 weeks after your wedding. About 4-5 weeks after your wedding we will contact you to set up a time for you to come in, along with your family, to view your wedding photos. You will be able to browse through them at your own pace on our big screen TV. We’ll also take this opportunity to discuss album options, as well as any prints you might want to have made. Your photos will also be added to Pictage, where your family and friends will be able to browse through them and order prints if they’d like.
Where should we have our engagement session?
We have a few favorite locations to shoot, but if you have somewhere specific in mind or a spot that is special to you, we are always up to trying something new.
