Thomas Beaman Photography

Frequently Asked Questions

What are you prices?

There are so many variables when it comes to pricing and packages. Is your wedding taking place in The Harrisburg or Lancaster, PA area? Or are you getting married in New York or Washington D.C.? Are you looking for 1 photographer or 2 photographers? Are you looking for 6 hours of coverage or 12 hours of coverage? Photo booth? Album? Because of the many options when it comes to packages and pricing, I have put together a very detailed PDF that goes over everything you would ever want to know. Please fill out the contact form and I will email the PDF right away.

Does Thomas personally photograph each wedding, or does he send other people in his place?

I am always the lead photograph at every wedding. I do not subcontract to other people. I will always be the main photographer at each and every wedding.

Do you carry a backup camera?

I get this question a lot, and simply saying yes does not explain how careful I am about protecting your images. To simply answer the question, yes, I carry multiple backups of my camera bodies. I also carry backup lenses, flashes, memory cards, cables, stands, and batteries.
But just carrying backup equipment is not enough. I take many more steps to ensure that these priceless recorded memories are safe at all times.
For starters, my cameras record onto 2 memory cards simultaneously. That means that in the extremely rare occurrence that a memory card fails or breaks, there is another card recording a copy of everything throughout the entire day. Once I get home from the wedding, all of the digital files are downloaded and backed up onto 3 separate hard drives. One of these drives is taken off site. The entire time that I am working on your digital files, two additional copies of your images are stored in two different different locations.

How many images will we receive?

A typical wedding day ends up being about 800-900 edited digital files

Are all of your digital files edited?

Yes, every single images gets special attention. I color correct each and every image. Other editing steps for each image include adjusting exposure, contrast, sharpening, dodging and burning.

Do we get the rights to our photos?

Yes, you get full rights to print and share all of your images as often as you like, and with as many people as you like. They are your edited files. There is no fine print. There is no need to buy anything afterwards. The images are not watermarked. You can print 1000 4×6’s. You can make giant canvases. You can give copies to your parents and friends. I encourage the couples I work with to print and share as many images as possible.
