I would say it's all about capturing the day as it all unfolds and documenting the story in a creative way. Capturing moments, details and people are what make weddings so special and unique. I am drawn to those unguarded and candid scenes. I attempt to capture these moments with an artistic feel that reveals feelings of emotion onto the viewer.
What best describes your style of photography?
I will capture your wedding day, with a mixture of dramatic portraits and clean light photography. I love using natural light, and shadows in some of my images to create mood, drama and romance. I fully understand that style isn’t something that is necessarily best for an entire day.
We were wondering if most of the the photos we would receive back be darker and moodier, or will there be some that are lighter?
Can we see an entire wedding gallery(s) to see how you capture the day?
I do not post full galleries on this site out of respect and privacy for my clients. Access to a full gallery can be made available by request. You will see a partial gallery on this site from weddings and couples sessions I have photographed.
How many photos should we expect to receive back after our wedding?
I deliver between 75 – 90 photos per hour. Quality over quantity of photos is what is important I feel. Also depends on the flow of day and the amount of hours of coverage desired.
Do you offer destination weddings?
Yes, custom packages can be made for any destination.
How long do we wait to get our photos?
Turnaround time varies by season and usually takes between 30-45 days to get delivery of your wedding photos. Within 7-10 days of your wedding you will receive link via email to a small sneak peek online gallery. Soon after that you will receive delivery of all your images from your wedding via an online gallery where you can download, share, and even orders prints. A copy of these images will also be mailed in a USB.
Do you have backup equipment? Are you insured?
Yes to both questions. I have plenty of equipment and am fully insured.
Do you offer video services?
I only do photography but would be happy to suggest vendors who provide this service
Will we get photo rights to our images you deliver to us?
You will receive a signed print release form from Jose Almeida Photography which will provide you with full rights to all your images for to you to use or print your jpgs files as much as you want.
