What style do you specialize in?
Our style has been described as modern, playful, and artistic. We are a blend of editorial fashion and photojournalism. We are there to capture it as it unfolds and tell the story through a series of images. We search out those special moments that make your wedding and family unique.
What is included in your collections?
Although some packages vary, every couple receives the following:
- Russell Snider, primary photographer
- Blog posting within 4 weeks of the wedding
- Online proofing of final edited wedding images*
- Wedding planning session via email/phone
- Additional add-on options: Second shooter, Engagement shoot, Custom Albums, Reception sign-in books, Post Wedding shoot, Custom Prints, and additional services/products.
Will you be available to discuss the wedding day photographs prior to the date of the wedding?
Yes, I love getting together with the bride and groom at least 4 to 2 weeks before the wedding. I’m also always available by phone or email.
Will you be taking the photos at our wedding?
Of course! I don’t have associate shooters. When you book me I’m the lead photographer for your wedding.
Do you have an second shooter?
Yes, most Collections offer a second shooter for your wedding day, and we highly recommend one for Weddings over 5 hours.
Will you accept a list of specific photos to be taken?
I always capture the usual events of every wedding. If there is something unique about your wedding please let me know and I’ll be sure to capture it. The only list that I usually need is who you want in your family photos. Be sure to designate someone who knows your guests to gather them on the day of the wedding.
Approximately how many images will I receive from my Wedding?
Every wedding is different so it varies but I usually deliver 75-100 images for every hour at the wedding with two shooters.
Do you have references?
You can read a collection of some of our reviews here.
How long after the wedding will the proofs be ready?
Your online gallery is posted within 120 days of the wedding date.
If I decide I have to cancel or reschedule my wedding or product orders can I have my retainer refunded?
No, the retainer and all payments are non-refundable, non-transferable. The retainer reserves your date for you and Snider Photo and Design turns down all other bookings for that date. All product orders are custom to our clients and once the order is placed it can not be canceled.
Can you provide/post the proofs online? Are proofs passcode protected?
Yes, all weddings have online proofing that are password protected.
Are you available to design wedding albums?
Yes, you have the option to add a custom designed album to any of our Wedding Collections. This service is exclusive to our Wedding Collections. You can select the images you’d like incorporated into the design in a separate folder within your proof site. All albums are custom made and all sales are final.
Do you have backup equipment available? What kind?
Yes, I come to every wedding with at least 2 of everything. I have three cameras, two flashes, and a variety of different lenses. I also have plenty of extra batteries charged and lots of memory cards.
If our event lasts longer than scheduled, will you stay longer?
Of course! If you decide to keep us longer, Snider Photo and Design will invoice you after your event.
Do you include negatives/digital files?
A DVD of all high resolution, color corrected JPGs is offered with every wedding collections for an additional fee.
Can you refer me to other vendors you’ve worked with and can recommend?
Yes, feel free to ask us for any recommendations and we will gladly assist.
What time should I schedule my ceremony?
A great time is 2 or 3 hours before sunset. Schedule your ceremony so your cocktail hour is the hour before sunset. That’s the best light for formal portraits. See what time the sun will set on your date. Click here
