Great Question! We love to start each journey by meeting with you and your fiancé during a little meet-and-greet at our studio. If you decide 3 Cord is the best company for your wedding, we’ll send out contracts, invoices, and our awesome questionnaire for you and your fiancé to fill out. We’ll schedule, shoot, and deliver your engagement pictures. We have a few planning meetings to nail in the details of the wedding, and we execute them with precision on the wedding day. Afterward, we deliver digital files for you to keep. We love to invite couples back to the studio to learn about printing options, though it’s not required.
Congratulations! I know how awesome it feels crossing out those items on the “To-Do” list. 3 Cord Weddings is a husband & wife team. We started our business so we could work together, and provide simple stress-free options for couples. Since we’re a team, we usually do not split our services. There are a few exceptions, but they are rare.
No one is required to take their engagement photos with us and if you’re happy with the photos you’ve already taken, we’re happy for you! However, we use the free engagement session to learn more about your personality and photography style. This gives us a chance to understand who you are, what you like, and what you dislike, so we can be completely prepared for the wedding day!
As many as you’d like! Keep in mind, that we try to stick to 1 hour of shooting during the engagement session. The more outfits you bring, the less time we have for poses. We recommend an average of 1-2 outfits for your engagement session.
Great question! If you’re having a hard time coordinating an outfit, email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to give our advice on what outfits work with photography, and what outfits you might want to avoid.
Great question! We have a super detailed information sheet that you and your fiancé can fill out as you have time. Inside are questions about your favorite songs, pictures you want, and more. We’ll also discuss these details at one of our planning meetings. If you have a Pinterest page, feel free to share it!
Of course! You’re welcome to make changes on your online client portal until 24 hours before the wedding. Just make sure to notify us that you’ve made a change so we don’t miss it!
Yes. Our deposit is a non-refundable retainer of $700. We understand that that can be a lot of money to come up with to reserve our services. If you require, we have the option to split it into two payments – $200 due with a signed contract and $500 due within 30 days.
This is a very hard question to answer easily. The timeline of the day heavily depends on the schedule of your day. It depends on if you’re having a first look, when will the hair appointment start, how large is your wedding party, what time the ceremony is, what time the reception begins, if you’re having a receiving line, etc. Talk with us about your specific event for a proper answer.
We know it can be hard to wait for your wedding photos. Even we had a hard time waiting for ours! Please remember that on average we’re working 3 weddings a month and we need to cull through thousands of photos. We contract 75 days, but in most cases, we have photos finished much much sooner.
Yes! Erin loves in-home sessions. If you’re not able to make it to our studio, or prefer shooting in the comfort of your own home, we’re happy to come to you!
