Package Questions

All B+P photography packages include delivery of high resolution digital files in a beautiful online gallery for proofing, sharing world-wide as well as instant high res digital downloads. All delivered images are  professionally edited in your preference of B+P styles ( Classic, Light & Airy, Golden, Dark & Moody) with a personal use copyright release and print release.

Weddings over 100 guests benefit highly by having a second shooter for candid shots, cocktail hour while the main shooter is capturing family, and more opportunity for creative angles. Second shooters are an absolute MUST have if you have a tight timeline or a split location where you need a photographer at two places at once.

The typical wedding coverage is 8 hours and includes portrait, ceremony and reception coverage. 

As your wedding photography company, B+P will retain copyright of all your wedding images. However, we always provide a limited Copyright and print release allowing unlimited personal use and printing of your wedding photos.

Bushel + Peck is proud to service the DFW Metroplex with no travel fees. For locations on the outskirts OR outside of the Metroplex, there may be a travel fee. 

General Questions

We understand what an exciting time this is, so 2-3 days after your wedding date we will post a few sneak peeks on our social media channels that you may re-share. At 2-3 weeks, we may post a blog of some of our favorite finished images. Your full proofing gallery of edited images will be delivered with 4-6 weeks of your wedding date. Clients are given 14 days to approve images or request any necessary changes. Once you approve the images in your proofing gallery, we will send instructions and a PIN to download your high resolution wedding files.

Yes, B+P carries required liability insurance through PPA. Some venues may even refuse photography companies (or any wedding vendor) without minimum liability insurance.

The Bushel + Peck Team is comprised of 6 primary photographers and 4 second shooters. B+P is proud to offer peace of mind of not only having back-up options for emergencies but that each B+P photographer is thoroughly vetted and able to provide high quality wedding photography to the B+P standard.

Equipment needs vary from one wedding to the next. However B+P photographers, always carry professional camera equipment including lenses, multiple bodies, batteries, lighting equipment and more.

Shooting is fairly continuous during a full wedding day; However, photographers may take a couple of very short breaks during quiet moments to have water or soda and a small snack. If the package is over 6 hours of coverage, a 20-30 minute break to eat is required and a vendor meal is requested for each photographer working.

We hope you’ll agree that your photos are amazing enough to share! However, this is negotiable. We respect our clients privacy and offer fully private package options for a small fee and, upon request include processing and handling of a flash drive. Ask for more details.

All B+P photography packages include professionally retouched images and instant digital downloads of print ready jpeg files. Along, with a personal use release so you can print your photos and/or use them on all your favorite social networks. We do not offer raw, unedited files, or negatives to clients.

Day of Questions

Traditionally, couples would wait to see each other until the ceremony. Couples may alternatively choose to have a “first look” privately. It is just them and the photographer capturing the final quiet moments before they get married and spend the rest of the day with guests. First looks, are an amazing way to pack in some additional time in your day for additional wedding portraits or to even knock them out beforehand.

It is always important to consider your ceremony time in proximity with sunset as well as your timeline in full. Calculate at minimum an hour after your ceremony to capture any family photos, wedding party photos, and your couple’s portraits.

It is a personal choice to have a first look. B+P respects each couple’s choice, while always trying to advocate for couples to get the most out of their wedding photography.

It is not necessary to provide a generic photography shot-list. B+P photographers are there to capture your day and are sure to capture all of major items such as, first kiss, ring exchange family portraits, rings, bouquets, guest shots, etc.

We encourage clients to notify us if there are any specific items you are looking to capture. For instance, special moments, performances, specific people out side of the immediate families or wedding party that you’d like to capture. We send a Day of Questionnaire form, 30 days before the wedding date that will prompt many of these items.

Bushel + Peck offers many resources to help couples from start to finish plan their wedding day. Our team, will include a Day of Questionnaire and a full page on creating timelines. Sample timelines, provided HERE.

Ultimately, it is the clients responsibility to provide a final timeline with requested arrival time. If you have a day of coordinator, they will often provide this service. We are happy to assist with timeline questions to ensure you have enough time built-in for your photography.
