Wedding and Event Photography:

Can we meet you before our wedding or event?
Absolutely!  Let’s schedule an in-person FREE Wedding Photography Consult!  It’s a great opportunity for you to meet with your photographer face-to-face.  You can see their portfolio of weddings, talk about your timeline of events, and go over some of your photo ideas!
How far do you travel?
We travel for weddings and events all over the Twin Cities, central and western Minnesota, northern Iowa, and western Wisconsin.  Contact us for a quote if your event is further than a 20 mile radius of Minneapolis, MN.

How many hours is a photographer booked for a typical wedding?
It really does depend on how large your wedding is, and what your timeline of events include.  Do you want us there to capture you getting ready?  Do you want us there for the garter/bouquet toss?  We will talk in depth with you about your timeline of events, and make a suggestion so that you get the best coverage, all while sticking to your budget.

Our most popular package with couples is our 8 hour package. If you’d like additional coverage, you can also add an hour or two, or add a 2nd photographer to your package!

What is included in retouching services?
Images are color corrected, exposure corrected and cropped.  Retouching includes blemish removal, teeth and eye whitening-if needed, eye sharpening and brightening, skin smoothing, fly-away hairs, and skin redness removal.  Please let us know ahead of time if you have any birth or beauty marks that you would like us to keep.

If you would like an image in black and white, sepia, or a color selection, just let Danielle know!

Above and beyond our normal retouching, extra retouching services are only $7/image, and can include:

  • Tan line removal
  • Tattoo removal
  • Digital “liposuction”
  • Removal of items/people in background
  • Facial and/or head swaps
  • Other retouching services

*We do recommend using a professional makeup artist.  If doing your own makeup, we recommend steering clear of makeups with a sheen or sparkle to them (look for matte finishes).  Sheen reflects light, and can make skin look shiny or sweaty.

How are images delivered?
Images are uploaded to a private, password protected, online photo gallery (if you would like public access-please let Danielle know!).  Downloads are FREE!  (Free downloads are web resolution)

You can access your photo gallery here.  Feel free to share your gallery link and password with friends and family!

*For weddings and engagement sessions images will also be delivered on USB in high-resolution.

What happens if I lose my wedding USB?
We’d like to remind couples to back up their files, but we know life happens… don’t worry, we have you covered.

We keep your wedding on file indefinitely.  Simply email or call Danielle and we can send you another copy of your wedding.  There is a $49 fee (and it includes high-resolution images on USB, packaging and shipping-tracking and insurance is included). 

Do you offer any discounts?
Yes!  We often work with DJ Joe Albrecht (and Joe’s Pros) and offer $25 off any event, if Joe is booked as your wedding or event DJ/MC.

We also have a 10% Off-Season Wedding discount, for weddings between November 1st – March 31st!

What about gratuity?
It is not figured into our photography packages.  Although gratuity is not expected, it is greatly appreciated!
Is there tax?
All photography packages are subject to MN Sales Tax.  MN Sales Tax is calculated based on the location of your event or wedding. 
When is payment due?
Your balance is due by the date of your event.  We will email your final invoice prior to your event.  Check is preferred payable to “Studio Delphianblue, LLC.  We also accept credit cards and Paypal.  There is a 3% processing fee for all credit card and Paypal transactions.  (This fee does NOT apply to online photo orders within your photo gallery)
