Yes! Engagement pictures are ALWAYS (except elopements) included in the Wedding Experience! During the engagement session, we provide you with all the guidance you need so that on the wedding day, you both become pros and feel relaxed and comfortable! 

Are engagement photos included with weddings?

FAq

On average we shoot 50-70 photos per hour, depending on detail and timelines.
 All weddings include 8 hours of coverage and proposals can last up to 1 hour.
We provide plenty of pictures to choose from and the cost of the images, preparation, and time are all included.

How many images do we receive?

FAq

The beauty of surprise proposals is that we can make it happen in a number of ways. We have captured proposals in a number of settings; from vineyards to DC memorials. We've hidden as tourists and planned as "marketing/styled shoot" turned into proposal session. We help with finding the right time of the year, the location and planning all the details for you so that you can the moment right. We've helped pull off dozens of proposals!

can you capture my proposal as a surprise?

FAq

We offer a bouquet of flowers complimentary on your proposal date. This helps to mark the spot and make the moment that much more romantic. Depending on the location, we can offer additional setup. Some locations may have restrictions for open flames, signs, etc.
For bigger floral arrangements, candles, signs, etc. an additional cost will be added to the proposal package.

can i add flowers or details to the proposal?

FAq

Most vineyards, venues, or monuments in DC will offer some sort of cover. Virginia typically gets the most rainfall during the months of April and May. We check the weather regularly for outdoor sessions and have a purchased app that gives the most accurate update and timing to show any breaks in the weather. We can adjust the locations or timing if needed within the hour or so. On every session (and wedding) we always have clear umbrellas on hand that happen to photograph well and help keep you dry even if proposals cannot be rescheduled.

What happens if it rains during the proposal?

FAq

Yes! If your wedding is outside of the 60 miles radius, travel costs vary with hotel stay and/or transportation. We arrive 2 days early from the wedding date (to prevent delays and arrive for the wedding rehearsal practice) and depart the morning after your destination wedding. Most hotels offer a discounted cost for wedding guests that can help with travel costs.

do you travel for destination weddings?

FAq

Yes. Elopement packages are very limited and begin at $2,500 that includes 5 hours of coverage (getting ready, details, portraits, ceremony, and formal images), 2 photographers, online gallery of images, timeline preparation, and travel to ceremony (60 miles). Destination elopements are available with additional travel costs. 

Do you offer  elopement Photography packages?

FAq

All wedding packages require a non-refundable retainer fee to secure your wedding date and ensure the date is yours. This entire process is done online for easy convenience. The remaining balance is due 28 days before the wedding date. We do offer payment plan options on a case by case basis. 
All proposal and portrait payments are due in full at the time of signing.

how does Payment work and are payment plans available?

FAq

Unfortunately we do not offer discounts. Just like your career or job helps support your family, our business is our livelihood. Imagine walking into your day job and your boss asks you to work a full week but won't be paying you in full. You'll still do the same amount of work. It's uncommon for your day job to give "discounted" paychecks, so naturally we don't offer discounts. But we can talk about payment plans. 

Do you offer any discounts?

FAq

Yes! A benefit for all of our couples, brides, and grooms, is we offer family and maternity sessions. On case by case basis we take on outside family and maternity depending on availability. Portraits, head shots, or lifestyle sessions are available on request. All newborn sessions are referred out to a specialized photographer. Inquire with us at info@benandsophia.com for your session. 

Do you offer other types of photography?
