Asked Questions and Wedding Photography Information
Very personalized, full wedding day coverage. Coverage options are linked
to our various pricing and packages. I am very liberal with time frames
and open to creating customized packages specifically to match your
schedule on your wedding day. I arrive on site well ahead of scheduled
times just to make sure that ample time is available for the optimal
placement and set up of equipment. I utilize an assistant at most weddings.
Once set up and the shooting of the formal portraits begins my assistant
maintains the flow by having the subjects ready for the various groupings
and is quick with any last minute hair or make up retouching. Our packages
are structured to allow ample time for posed formal shots before your
actual wedding service, coverage during the service, finalize remaining
posed portraits, and complete reception coverage, highlighting all of
the special moments and capturing even the small details of flowers,
food and decorations.
goal is to make you feel comfortable about our presence with cameras
and lighting equipment. Many couples are not fully at ease and confidant
while being photographed. Our style and manner will naturally put you
and your families at ease while being photographed and you will soon
be enjoying the attention. After all, this is your day and you are the
star. Weddings and families go together, we mix patience and persistence
to get the poses and family groupings that are important to you.
What options are offered for Proof Photographs?
are representations of finished prints. Proofing options are based on
the various package options. A typical wedding will generate 300 or
more proof photographs.
Web Hosting and On-line Print Ordering of
Your Wedding Pictures.
NPT Imaging will host the proof images of your wedding on-line. The
reaction to having your wedding pictures on-line has been so positive
that all of our options include this feature. Imagine…your own wedding
picture web site! Easy to access by your family and friends this is
an excellent way to share your wedding memories with distant relatives
and friends. In addition your family and friends can order their own
prints through our web-hosting feature. This relieves you of the responsibility
as well as providing the convenience so that your family and friends
can order directly from home or work. Proofs will be available on-line
for 120 days after your wedding date.
Who will be the Actual Photographer and What about Backup Equipment?
We arrive at your event location fully prepared and utilize professional
equipment with backup of everything. Thomas Nance will be your photographer.
I do have alliances with several other professional photographers and
assistants that will be utilized in an emergency situation.
Bridal Portrait Sessions
This is a portrait session in a studio or environmental setting or even
at the actual wedding location or Chapel. There are so many time constraints
placed on the bride and Groom on the actual wedding day that even when
time is allotted for formal portraits prior to your wedding, there will
almost always be a rush or interruptions as family and friends arrive
for the wedding ceremony, or perhaps the facility imposes time limitations.
When shooting the posed formal shots after the wedding there is always
the stress of knowing that 200 guests are waiting for the Bride and
Groom to arrive at the reception. A bridal portrait session does not
totally replace the posed formal shots taken at a wedding. There will
still be groupings with the bridal and groom's parties and family groupings
that will be taken at the wedding. The real benefit of a separate session
such as this is that there is so much more time that can be spent on
these very important portraits, you will look your best with out the
distractions. Total attention is focused on you the Bride and the Groom
only in a relaxed atmosphere with out a rush. These are the ultimate
prints that will adorn your walls and mantle and will be the showcase
of your wedding prints. You will not have the stress and excitement
of your wedding day during these portraits, we will be completely able
to apply creative options and techniques, maybe you even want to try
out different hair styles, time is a relaxing luxury during these bridal
sessions. This also serves as a trial run for make up, hair, dress,
Travel and Destimation Weddings
I am available for travel to your wedding. I have photographed several
out of state events both through ground transportation and air travel.
Expenses for travel out side of the Greater Louisville, KY area are
evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Basic package prices apply to weddings
in the Louisville area only.
I like what I have seen, what would be the first step in booking
Saturdays are the prime days for Weddings; the first step is to make
sure that we are not yet booked for your date. Call 502-592-4203 to
check available dates. Date are not held or confirmed until a signed
contract and retainer fee is received.
An important note: Often I hear concerns from prospective brides
about photographers that book weddings back to back on the same day.
I feel that this would lead to potential problems in my workflow and
this does not fit the model of personal attention that we strive to
provide. We book one wedding per day, which allows us to fully concentrate
on your event.
Are Engagement Portraits Available?
An Engagement Portrait Session includes prints from your Engagement
Session as well as a digital image file for newspaper submission. Engagement
Session proofs are provided via Internet Proofing. Engagement sessions
have proven to be a great way to provide you with great pictures for
newspaper submissions and allow a wonderful opportunity for interaction
with the wedding couple.
What Types of Wedding Albums does NPT Imaging Offer?
Having done extensive research into Wedding Albums I explored both what
I liked and also what I did not like. Current modern album design is
more exciting than ever with the use of digital techniques, album pages
can be created and reviewed via Internet viewing so that you are assured
that the look, style and design is exactly what you want. Plus, you
can review proposed layouts from the comfort of home or work. I have
found the methods and materials of Zookbinders® Photo Albums to be more
pleasing than all others. These albums are very unique, distinctive,
and artistic and definitely not you’re Grandmother's Photo Album. Nearly
all-handmade construction, the glove leather cover can only be described
as sensuous. Photographs are hand mounted onto pages, then protected
from abrasion and fingerprints by a protective laminate. With prints
sealed into the pages this album with certainly become a family heirloom.
Each page with photographs mounted on both sides becomes nearly 1/8"
thick. Page edges are gilded in gold, silver, white or black. Several
choices are available in cover colors. Each side of each page can be
creatively comprised of a single print or up to 12 smaller prints and
just about anything in-between is creatively possible. Other size albums
are also available.
How much of a retainer fee does NPT Imaging Require?
To definitely confirm the date a signed contract along with a retainer
fee of $500 is required. Dates are not held on a tentative basis. The
retainer fee amount applies to the balance of your overall wedding coverage
package. Full payment of any balance is due one week before the wedding

can be created with your pictures, poem or phrase also the newlywed's
address change, phone numbers, e-mail address basically what ever will
fit on this 2.5" x 3.5" card. This provides a special keepsake, take-home
memento for your guests as well as passing along the important details
