Will I have the same photographer for my session & wedding day?

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

What is your up front retainer, and when is my final payment due? 

We require a 30% retainer at the time of signature. Your final payment is due the day after your wedding, and can be easily set to auto-pay. We accept bank transfer, credit card, or check.

Frequently asked questions

Can I see a sample wedding gallery? 

Yes! View the Our Work page, or request a sample gallery in your contact form. We want to make sure that our style is a perfect fit for what you and your fiance love, both in terms of color grading and capturing style.

How many weddings do you photograph yearly? 

At  CHP, each team member photographs around 12 weddings each year, so that you can receive the most individualized attention possible. We have photographed over 150 weddings to date!
