Frequently asked questions

What is the turn around time to recieve my portraits?


It typically takes 6-8 weeks from the date of your wedding to receive your photos. Any printed products will arrive 30-60 days after you complete your order. For any session besides weddings, like engagement + newborns, you can expect to see your images anywhere from 4-6 weeks from the date of your session.




How many photos should I look forward to?


While there is no set number for a wedding, depending on the package you choose, you'll recieve between 600 and 900.




I'm having a destination wedding, do you do them?


Yes! I love to travel and see new places. I'll go anywhere the job takes me.




Do you deliever every photo you shoot?


No, part of my service to you is culling through the images and selecting only the best for you. During the day, I take test shots; I'm also not perfect so sometimes I might have a blurry image or two. Also, when taking formal group shots (i.e. the wedding party or family groupings), there is bound to be at least one picture with someone blinking or looking away from the camera. You should not have to worry about seeing these pictures every time you look at your wedding photos.




I'm a huge D.I.Y. person, can I just print my own pictures?


Yes, however, common places to have your images printed typically are not set to represent the true colors of your pictures, which can change off the colors severly. In order to get the true colors and pictures that won’t fade or fall apart over time, I recommend printing your images through the professional printing labs I use for all my work.




Do you only do weddings?


We offer a variety of services. Weddings tend to be our focus, but we also offer life-style, family portraits, newborns, maternity, headshots, events, and boudior.




What is your style of photography?


We try to see love stories in every day moments and try to capture the feelings of the moment. With our approach, we try to document the day or session for you to relive each time you look at your photographs.




Do you retouch all the images that I recieve?


All the digital images are hand-editted with general correction (such as exposure) but no alterations will be done to a preron's weight or appearance. Any requests for additional retouching can be made but are subject to additional charges. Many hours are spent by our team to carefully edit your images.




Do you do videography?


No, at this time I do not offer this service - however, if you desire a videographer (which is a great memento to add for your special day), I can get a list of available vendors for that day for you and your significant other to review and pick which one fits your needs the best.




I want engagement pictures, when is the best time to have these done?


No less than 3 months prior to your wedding - so that they will be delievered and you can order your prints in time for any wedding decor you might want. You can book this at any time. It's also a great chance to see how we work and for you to be comfortable with us.




How will I see my final images?


You and your family will be able to download your photos via an online gallery we will send you.




Do I get the RAW files too?


No, I never deliver RAW files. You receive only the best edited images, and only the finished product. Would you ask the baker to just give you the batter for your wedding cake so you can go home and bake and decorate it yourself?




I want an album, how long will it take to recieve it?


Once you pick the images you want to have included in your album, it will take 4-6 weeks to recieve the album.




Do you have liability insurance?


Yes, this information can be made available for venue upon request.




Do I own the copyright to my pictures?


Brittany Harmening Photography is sole owner of the copyright to our images. However, you do receive printing rights with your package. I offer a variety of print packages including a variety of albums, wall art, and prints.
