Frequently asked questions
I'm getting married, when should I contact you?
Congratulations! As soon as you have a date confirmed. While many people start looking for a photographer later on in their planning, we recommend you hiring us immediately after knowing when you are getting married. Planning your day around photography has proved to be much smoother in our experience, not to mention, we love recommending the best venues and vendors in town so it helps save you time and money! Contact us to get started.
WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR PRICING?
Our pricing isn’t online for a reason. We want to ensure we are a good fit for you based on your needs and budget. Simply email us what you are looking for and we will reply to you with more details. Feel free to text or call for a faster response.
How long have you been photographing?
Professionally, for 5 years (since 2012). Prior to getting into wedding photography, Altamish started out photographing community events and landscape while Hannan photographed products and food for advertising. Read more about how we got started here.
HOW CAN I BOOK YOU?
Please email us to find out our availability. If available, we will walk you through our booking process.
DO YOU offer VIDEOGRAPHY?
While photographers use similar equipment there is a different skill set required for videography. We currently do not offer it but can recommend a few good vendors. Feel free to contact us if you need our help.
ARE DIGITAL PRINTS AND ALBUM INCLUDED IN YOUR PACKAGES?
Digital prints are extra while a custom photo album is included in all of our packages. We highly recommend printing your photos using high quality paper and ink to maintain quality.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I GET?
It all depends on how many hours we are scheduled to photograph at a given event. We both average about 60-70 images/hr. With all of our sessions, we edit and deliver the best ones. We don’t have a quantity restriction.
WHO CAN SEE MY PHOTOS?
All rights to images created by Altamish and Hannan Photography will remain with the photographers. We reserve the right to display any photographs made in conjunction with your session/wedding as samples of our work for the purposes of window and showroom exhibit, advertising, promotion on the internet, publication, instruction and professional competition. If for any reason you don’t want your photos published or shown to others, please informs us in writing before you sign the contract.
DO YOU ACCOMMODATE CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS WEDDINGS?
Absolutely, we initially served our Muslim community in our first few years before expanding to other communities so we understand all the intricate details and traditions that go into them. Please let us know how we can best accommodate you and your families throughout the wedding process.
WHAT'S YOUR TURNAROUND TIME FOR PHOTOS?
We try to process images as fast as we can. We typically will deliver wedding images within a month while portraits, engagements and proposals all have a one week turnaround. We understand how excited you are to see the photos right away so we send you 5-10 images within 2 days of the session. Wedding albums design is a 2-4 week process. There’s a rush fee if you wish to have your photos processed and delivered faster. Please let us know upon booking.
What gear do you use?
We are proud Nikon users! Our gear consists of 3 DSLR cameras: 2 D750 and 1 D600. Our lenses include: 70-200mm f/2.8, 105mm f/1.2, 18-5mm, 35mm f/1.8, 50mm f/1.8 and a 85mm f/1.8 in addition to tripods, batteries, flashes, reflectors, diffusers and stands. We use Adobe Lightroom to process and edit photos.
Do you Travel for weddings?
