A: We allow you to have the high resolution files and to print them as well as post them everywhere you like. However, the Copyright Act protects photographers by giving the author (us) of the photograph the exclusive right to copy, edit, and distribute image by sale or transfer. It is very likely that your images will be displayed on our website, social platforms, print, brochures, etc. If you do not wish to have your images used by our company or our affiliates for sale or promotional purpose, please make sure to discuss our “privacy protection plan” with us prior to signing a contract.

Q: Can I upload my photos to Facebook?

A: Yes! It gets even better…we do it for you.

Q: How far in advance should I book you for my event?

A: It does matter whether you like being photographed or not, but we have a very professional attitude and have our ways to make you relaxed and take beautiful photographs of you.

Q: Do you charge for travel?

Q: Do you bring a backup camera to the shoot?

A: We always do!

Q: What do I need to do to guarantee my event booking?

A: You can consider the photography for your event secured, as soon as you have a signed contract and a deposit.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: For events we prefer checks. For smaller photo sessions we can accept credit cards.

Q: Do you bring your own lighting?

A: We sure do. And we have a variety of lighting to use.

Q: Do you work from a shot list?

A: The majority of our clients do not provide us with photo lists. We maintain communication throughout the day and make sure it is all done. We are very organized and have a routine combination list that we follow by memory, but if you would like us to follow your list, no problem. We just have to make sure it doesn’t interfere with our routine. First way to do this is to give a list to a trusted family member or friend and they can keep synchronizing with us and make sure it is all done. Second option is to add an additional assistant to the photography package so they can watch the list while we are photographing. (There is a fee for that).

Q: Can I give you examples of photos I would like to see taken if possible?

A: Yes, you can send us sample photos of what you like, and this will help us determine your style.

Q: Are you flexible in regards to hours of coverage?

A: Yes, we are flexible in regards to extending your package to more hours. (There is a fee for that)

Q: How many photographers will there be?

A: We ensure that the number of photographers listed in your agreement, are there and working hard.

Q: Will you be there the whole time?

A: Yes, the Domino Arts Team will be there as many hours as listed on the agreement.

Q: How many images can I expect to see?

A: We take as many images as we can and we work hard. For example, we expect to take thousands of images at an average wedding with 8-10 hours of coverage. After careful and detailed selection, you can expect to see a few hundred photos as “highlights” in a separate folder, as well as all the rest of the photos except all shots we took while testing. Overall you will receive thousands of images in high resolution. The total number of images we capture depends on the event, and on the number of photographers you have. We also offer “Narrowing Down” of your images. This process will primarily eliminate excessive amount of repetition and will reduce the large number of photos to about 30%

Q: How long does it take to get proofs?

A: Currently we deliver images within one week, but by contract we are allowed to take up to twelve weeks for delivery, depending on our availability and bookings prior to your event.

Q: Will I receive a disk of the images or be able to download them all without incurring additional costs (having the digital files is very important to me!)?

A: Absolutely! We will share the ownership of the photos and will provide you with a Hard Drive (not just a thumb drive) with high resolution of all the chosen images that can be anywhere from several hundred to over a thousand, depending on the event and the number of photographers you have. If a Hard Drive is not included in your package, you are welcome to upgrade. (There is a fee for that)

Q: Will I be asked for permission before using any images on your website, social media, etc.?

A: We offer privacy protection plan where we do not use your images for any purpose and we do not post them on social media. However, by default and as listed in our agreement, we will use images from your event for our marketing, promotion etc and yes, they will go on our social media channels, unless privacy protection plan is purchased prior to posting such photos online.

Q: Do you have back up photographers in case one of them is sick or can't make it on the day?

A: We are crazy about backups and ensuring that your event goes as smooth as possible so we have backup people, backup equipment, sometimes we even travel in separate cars if the shoot is long distance so we avoid trouble and we always arrive early.

Q: Would you let me know if I am becoming a pain in the butt?

A: It depends on the price point of your package.

Q: Do you charge for extra time of coverage?

A: If you would like us to stay longer than we are booked for on the day of your event that is no problem. (There is a fee for that) We will send you an invoice for the difference on the day after your event.

Q: Will the photographer at my wedding be nice with us and the guests?

A: If you would like an asshole at your event, there is an additional charge for that; however, we are out of assholes until year 2178.

Q: If I find a cheaper photographer and I have already booked you, would you discount the difference?

A: If you find a more expensive photographer, would you send us an additional payment?
