Whether your wedding is expecting 15 or 1,500 guests, our #1 priority on that day is you and your soon-to-be spouse. We will commit 100% of our attention, talent, and gear to capture moments that we know you will want to look back and smile/cry/laugh/reminisce. Therefore, the size of your guest list makes very little difference to our work process and pricing.
While many photographers prefer to shoot in “natural light”, we are able to utilize light to our advantage and maximize this all-important tool both during the day and at night. We are extremely skilled at using natural sun light, flashes, LEDs, ICE lights, and even cell phone lights to create amazing photographs. Short answer is, Yes! All you need to do on the day of the wedding is to look fabulous and leave the pretty photos to us!
We hope what you see on our website will answer this question. On a fundamental level, our approach to wedding photography starts with art and style. And we are here to capture your version of the fairytale with our cameras. Our images and service will ensure you and your fiancé a once-in-a-lifetime experience with us. Our clients come to us with a shared appreciation for our image styles and techniques as well as the desire for wedding photos that set them apart.
For starters: fun, laughter, and professionalism. You can expect us to be there at the time we said we’d be there (most likely 1 to 2 hours ahead, even) and focus 100% of our attention on you throughout the day. We will come prepared, over prepared, and document every single moment that you would want to see even decades later.
We typically will deliver between 500-600 final edited images per wedding. Of course, we shoot much more and some of them might be test shots, an uncle that suddenly got in the way, bad lighting, or outtakes. We pay very close attention to details during processing so that only the best images make the cut. And you can bet that every single image you receive in the end is billboard worthy!
No more than 4 weeks on average. Most of time even sooner than that. Believe us, we want to see those gorgeous images just as much as you do. And we typically begin editing the Monday after your wedding.
Our packages start with 8 hours of continuous coverage. If you feel 8 hours is simply not enough, we can add on additional times on top of the package you’ve chosen.
Absolutely! Our print and canvas ordering process is completely self-serve through our client portal.
Our handcrafted Italian leather albums will be made to blow you away. Each album is handcrafted in the finest Italian leather and printed by the best print house in the industry. We also offer parent albums for moms and dads! Remember, 20 years from now when you want to look back on that incredible day, a leather album will always carry indescribable sentiment than images on a CD (if computers can still read CDs then).
Yes! May we suggest an engagement session in the countryside of Beijing? Or perhaps a destination wedding on the beach of Karon, Thailand? No matter where you are we will gladly come with you! There is no difference in pricing for Destination Weddings…so let’s pack our bags and go!
Absolutely not. We create beautiful images with the intention of sharing. We want our clients to share and print them however they like. So please feel free to print, share, love, and archive in any way you please!
Yes. We offer one complimentary pre-wedding consultation prior to signing any paperwork. This can be done either in our home studio or our go-to location downtown. We want to get to know you, your style, and your vision for your wedding so meeting you face to face is very important to us. Don’t be shy, give us a call 🙂
The easiest way to do so is to let us know through email at info[at]davidguophoto.com and we will provide you with a service agreement to sign electronically. A 50% retainer fee is required at the time of signing to ensure your date is reserved.
