Frequently Asked Questions – Weddings
Want to know how this all works? Read on to get the full scoop!
Our photographic style is authentic, true and pure. The most important part of our imagery is letting your natural beauty shine through in every photograph! We use photographic craft and authentic lighting to create images for you that are truly beautiful because they are real. All of the images presented in our portfolio are shot the way you see them straight from our cameras. While we are happy to retouch and finish images in software, we do not use software as a tool for creating images themselves. Amazing images are created in the camera, and it is this authentic style that our clients love so much and that we are best known for. We strive to create imagery that is timeless and will look fabulous (and not dated) for years to come. In addition, Kevin our lead photographer personally works with all of our couples assuring every client the same level of dedication and artistry!
We’ve put together the most commonly asked questions here for you. We hope you find this information very helpful. If you have any questions that are not addressed here, please feel free to phone or email the studio at your convenience. We are always happy to help, and we look forward to speaking with you and meeting soon!

All of your wedding day images are edited individually in studio. We take great care to make sure that each is properly color corrected and balanced and presenting beautifully! We do not use any form of automated process.
- How may photographs will we receive?
We do not limit what we photograph on your day, and our goal is always to provide greatest variety possible. The number of images will vary based on single or two photographer coverage and also the length and complexity of your day. Most two photographer weddings typically provide a minimum of 700 images, and often yield more!

You can also use the gallery system to make your album image selections and send them over to us to begin your album design, making the process truly seamless.
- Do you offer engagement photography?
We love shooting engagement sessions! Wavecrest clients have the advantage of working with Kevin our lead photographer for their engagement session. This gives us a chance to get to know each other, and also to gives you the chance to feel comfortable in front of the camera. One of Kevin’s major strengths as a photographer is helping everyone look their best, and during your engagement shoot he will be able to give you plenty of easy tips that will help you both look and feel great! This also translates directly to your wedding day photography, and you will feel comfortable being photographed from the first minute of your day!
