Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When Should I Book?
A. We turn away over many weddings each year simply because we are already booked for a particular date! You should not wait! I have booked weddings as far as 18 months out and some even before the proposal! Its never too soon! If you have not already, fill out the contact form now! or give me a call, 910-665-9801. If there is no answer please leave a message I will get back to you as soon as possible, usually that same day!
Q. What will it be like working with you?
A. I am there for you! Anytime and anyway I can be to help you feel comfortable leading up to the wedding day. I am available via email or phone or in person as much as you need me! Customer service is another one of my top priorities! Want proof? Read my reviews on Wedding Wire. I believe one of the most important things about a stress free lovely wedding process is how you feel when you work with me! Before, during and after your wedding. You are my priority, your comfort and happiness in my presence and with my business is one of the things Theo Milo Photography is grounded on. I am a human being first, business man second. Honesty, professionalism and going the extra mile for you, whatever that looks like, is what I am committed to. Again, read the reviews for proof!
Q. What kind of coverage to you offer?
A. All collections include at least 7hrs of wedding day coverage, online contract completion (this means no snail mail for contracts!), a website for viewing and sharing your images, and the rights to your hi-res images on USB (that means you get all your wedding day images to keep, print ready!). You will have the opportunity to customize your collection to include the the perfect add-ons for your day, like an engagement session, album credits, prints, additional hours of coverage, ect... Custom pricing or collections are welcome also.
Q. How long will it take to see my images after the wedding?
A. On average your images will be ready 4 weeks after the wedding! Sometimes even sooner! It simply depends on the time of year. May and June weddings along with September and October weddings take a little longer to turn around because of the amount of weddings that take place in these months. Getting your images to you in a timely and professional manner is one of my top priorities! We take great care to edit your images in the most flattering way as well. This means we take a little extra time to complete them.
Q. How do I know my images are safe?
A. I take protecting your images VERY seriously!! My camera has two memory cards that backs up every single image automatically. Once your images get back to the studio, they go into a fire proof safe. From there they are imported and backed up again then that hard drive is stored in a fireproof safe. Your memories couldn't be safer!
Q. Do you have back up equipment?
A. Yes. We carry back up cameras, lenses, lighting, batteries, and memory cards to every wedding.
Q. What is required to book my wedding?
A. Depending on your location, a $1,000 or $2,000 deposit and a signed contract. This will officially hold your date!
Q. When are payments due?
A. Your final payment is due 5 days prior to your wedding for the remaining balance. You may send in other payments whenever you want and however you want but the invoice must be paid in full 5 days prior to the wedding date.
Q. Do you shoot on film?
A. Yes! I do offer film coverage! Film coverage consists of a combination of 35mm and medium format. If you have ever held a print that was photographed on medium format film then you know the difference! There is a life to film shots that digital just can't quite capture!
Q. Where can I see more of your work?
A. Simply visit the blog. The blog is designed for you to stay up to date with my current work and see more form each wedding and the locations I have worked. The portfolio section here is a collection of my favorite shots and good gauge on my style. There are many more moments and candid images you can expect form a full wedding day though, there just isn't enough room in the portfolio section to show them all!
