Why Hire Avonné Photography?
I get it, you have looked at SO many wedding photographers who capture the moment, and capture the best moments of your big day. But, what does that really mean? We as photographers capture moments that happen on a wedding day; cake cutting, first dance, first touch, first kiss, etc.. but what about the moments in between? I strive and solely run my business on those in between moments that no one sees. Its raw, its authentic, uninfluenced and just real. Those photos, in my opinion, are those that we remember. I am here to give you an experience. Not just someone who can shoot and edit pretty. I genuinely care about my couples and it is my hearts desire to make you feel as though we have known each-other for years. These photographs must travel in time as you journey in your life and they will eventually replace the memory of your wedding day. This why they are so important. I am a 10 year, experienced destination wedding photographer who has seen so much in my career. My experience in this industry will ensure that you are completely stress free on your wedding day. Let’s take a journey together.
• Do you do Destination Weddings?
A: YES YES YES! While I am based out of North Carolina, I travel anywhere on the globe.
• Do you give us Raw files?
I do not give out raws. You've hired me because of my editing style and I never give out an unfinished product.
• Do you have an assistant/ Second Photographer?
A: Yes! I believe in giving my clients lots of variety and a second set of eyes. I love having a second person there so that while I am getting the formal things, they are capturing all the great moments happening around us.
• Do you edit all of our photographs?
Yes! The editing/ culling process is the fun part for me!. I spend hours culling, hand-editing, and tweaking photos to make them look beautiful, one photo at a time.
• What are Your Travel fees?
My travel fees are $.59/mi for weddings 50 mi outside of Charlotte, NC . If your wedding requires a flight, One round trip ticket, 2 nights at an Air bnb, and car rental (only if needed). Once we figure out that cost, I combine it all together to make it easy!
• What is your usual turnaround time for wedding photo delivery?
I ask my clients to give me 5-7 weeks for wedding photo delivery. I spend time editing and making beautiful photographs for you to last the rest of your lives and these things take time. As a courtesy I love to give my clients a sneak peek gallery within 24 hours of the wedding day.
For portrait session, I ask for a minimum of 2 weeks for photo delivery.
* You can always refer to your contract to refresh your memory*
• How many photos will we receive from our day?
The number of photographs you receive from your day depends on a number of factors- the number of guests, bridal party, hours of coverages, time, weather, and so forth. My wedding packages with second photographers will range from 500-700 photos, but those number are definitely dependent on how the day goes.
For intimate weddings and elopements, they can range from 400-500 images.
• How do we receive our wedding photos?
After we have completed your session, all my photos will be put in an online gallery for you. With that, you will be able to download, share with friends & fam, and even print straight from the gallery.
If opted to in your packages, I also offer custom glass USBs and leather albums for keepsakes to have forever!
• Will You Pose Us?
I love to be free and natural in my approach of “posing”. I just let you be you together. However, I won’t leave you high and dry . I will guide you and give you some prompts to help enhance interaction, however, I shoot the in-between and capture the most natural you.
• Do you require a deposit to secure our wedding date?
Yes! To lock in your date with me, I need a signed contract and a $1500 non -refundable retainer. Once I have those, you're all set!
• Do You Offer Albums?
YES YES and more YES! Print your photos! Albums are a way to look back on your day in print and pass them down to your children's children! More info on my albums at the bottom of this page!
