|ABOUT "PASSION" and other things!|
| The dictionary defines the word "Passion" as "A strong feeling or emotion" and that's precisely what I capture every time I cover a Wedding. I love what I do; other wise, I would stop doing it. My passion for weddings is expressed in each and every image I record. From photographing the couple as they see each other before the ceremony to capturing the exhilaration of their first dance, I love the feeling and emotion expressed by this special once in a life time moment. I also am overwhelmed by the beauty of even the smallest of details. When you allow me to cover your day, I promise to capture every special, passionate moment, every emotion, every detail with sensitivity and artistry. I also have several associate partners with degrees that work aside me in their own quest for "passion". |
My "passion" for beautiful images is backed up by my professional equipment. I use an array of Nikon 2.8 lenses which all truly professionals carry in their bags. I recently updated my camera bodies to include 2 Nikon D800s which photograph images at an unbelievable 36 megs. I also carry a D700 as a backup which means We have three camera bodies with us at all times. We carry three Nikon SB 800 flashes and over a dozen memory cards. I also carry a backup device that permits me to leave every wedding with TWO copies of every image I have shot. This means your memories are protected "Just incase" a mishap should occur.The company also carries Liability Insurance incase you or your guests are hurt by our equipment by accident.
You can plan on recieving 700-1200 full resolution photo images on your image DVD. You will be able to use these files to print up to 11x14 straight from the disk. Your corrected images will be seen on our password protected upload site within a week of your wedding event. The Bride and Groom and their guests will recieve a password to be used to see the images on our site useing the "Client Access" tab located here on our site. Your DVD with your images will follow by mail soon afterwards.
I believe that shooting in "Raw" delivers the absolute best image quality, even if this means I double my work load. I spend an average of 20 hours on correcting your images only stopping when every image is corrected perfectly.This is why every image is shot in "Raw" uncompressed mode, corrected, recropped and saved in Jpeg. Then the Jpeg file is further corrected and saved on your DVD. We also apply our own brand of specialty editing which includes sepia, black & white, vintage, and distressed effects which is included in all of our packages.
All of our standard packages come with two photographers and we recommend these packages for weddings with 150 or more guests. This way, you get two points of view and you get "double" the coverage. We also offer a more economical single photographer package for weddings with less than 100 guests. You can be assured that I book one photographic team per day providing a totally focused creative team.
We also pride ourselves in making sure we have a connection. It's this "connection" where the photo team learns the expectations of our clients have for our service. That is why we offer a free engagement shoot ("rights to reproduce" not included) with every wedding package. By doing this, we spend the necessary time together needed for us to get to "know each other'. You can also use this photo shoot as "practice" for your wedding day.
We offer hourly rate packages of 4 or 6 hours, as well as an almost unlimited hourly package- which includes up to 12 hours of coverage. This allows us to cover your event sun up to sun down.
To secure your wedding date we must recieve a non-refundable retainer fee for 1/3 of your total package price along with your signed contract. We do offer on-line booking for your convinience allowing destination brides to books us from their home. Just let us know if you are interested in receiving an emailed proposal. Once you, the client, sign the online propsal, you call us with your credit card for the retainer fee and you have contracted us for your wedding. If you prefer to meet with us in the studio first, please call at 603-969-9918 to make a non-obligation appointment. Please go to my Contact page and send us a request for information.
The company offers many services including custom prints. We use a professional quality lab offering sizes from wallets all the way to 24x36 and beyond in glossy as well as matted prints. We even offer the new metallic paper printed by many pros. We also offer canvas prints, framed prints, Rennaissance Album coffee table books, and parent albums. These can be written as part of the contract with substantial savings or can be ordered from our client access page.
We don't require a shooting list for formals for smaller weddings and prefer capturing the event "on the fly". In this way, we can present your wedding day in story form, as it happens through out the day.This will allow the finished product to have an updated and natural feel for you and your guest to enjoy for a lifetime. For doing formals of wedding parties bigger than six, we do recommend a reasonable wedding list with names and the titles of all your important people. This assures us we are familiar with them and helps us organize our shooting day. We have found that following a big name list interferes with capturing the natural documentary feel of your wedding pictures so please make this list REASONABLE in size.. It is recommended that for larger wedding parties that the client give us an assigned person to help us with the photo list who may know your guests by name. This will speed up the shooting process and help with the flow of the day.
All of our packages give clients "the right to reproduce" for personal use. This includes allowing any lab to print images for your own personal use. You can use any lab of your choice although using our Custom Lab will ensure the quality photographed is quality printed. Many drugstore labs will not reproduce the subtle colors captured by your pro photographer. We also allow you to use the images on Facebook provided our company Logo is not removed from any of the images. Robert Ortiz Photography still retains full copyright for any commercial use. Images may not be copied, scanned, or reproduced in any fashion with out the written permission of Robert Ortiz Photography.
