You have questions: I have answers.
Have a question that isn't answered here - let us know via our Contact Form.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Three Region is based in Raleigh, North Carolina - but don't think I only shoot wedding's here. I've booked sessions in Boston, New York, Charleston, Atlanta, Seattle, and more. I love to meet new clients in person but have also utilized Skype and Facetime to schedule consultations for out of town couples.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING WEDDINGS?
I created this company in May of 2015 and have been shooting wedding's ever since. In our first year we shot 5 weddings, then 27. (WHEW) We know what we are doing, with over 5 years in the wedding industry and a background in Film Production we make sure to bring professionalism and an artistic eye to your wedding.
why do you RECOMMEND an engagement session?
I believe that an engagement session helps us get to know each other a little better, gets you familiar with being in front of the camera, and lets you have a little fun before the big day. Plus who doesn't want fun photos to show off.
CAN I SWAP MY ENGAGEMENT SESSION FOR SOMETHING ELSE?
You know what - you do you! If you want to swap an engagements session for a bridal session, morning after session, or something else let me know. I will work with you to make sure your package works for you.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes. As mentioned above I LOVE to travel. I have quite a few out of state wedding's booked each year. If you're out of state or even out of the country all I ask is that you pay for my plane ticket and lodging fee's and I'll be there at our normal rate.
DO YOU SHOOT LGBTq WEDDINGS?
You bet your ass I do!
We do not discriminate at Three Region and believe love is love. We are happy to shoot any wedding within the LGBTQ community.
HOW SOON WILL I GET MY PHOTOS?
Industry standard is 6 weeks - however I've been known to get them to you a little sooner. Your photos will arrive via email with High-Res, Digital Copies, and you will receive a USB within two weeks of digital delivery in the mail.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?
I believe in quality over quantity which means you will receive somewhere between 50-100 photos per hour of coverage. My main mission is storytelling and creativity so your album is curated to reflect your special day.
WHAT IF I WANT THOSE AWESOME ADVENTUROUS PHOTOS?
Just go for it! If you want to climb that waterfall, sneak into that abandoned building, run in the rain, or fly on a small plane, we are game - just remember you may get that dress a little dirty but it will be worth it.
What should I wear for our engagement session?
Comfortability is key. These photos display your personality and I've found that when you wear those heels they hinder your ability to walk, run, and have fun! So ditch them for cute sandals or sneakers. Also make sure you leave the graphic tee's at home and choose something plain, with a nice texture or pattern, or a dress with movement. But hey - if you wear heels everyday I'm not going to stop you. You do you - and I will capture it!
HOW CAN I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING?
First send us an inquiry here. If your date is available we will schedule a consultation to meet with you & your partner to discuss all the wedding details. Once you sign a contract I ask for a 1/3 deposit and then it's time to start planning!
HOW far in advance should i book?
Most couples book within 6-12 months in advance. May/October bookings are sometimes even longer than that (its the busiest months in NC). When you send me an inquiry I will let you know ASAP if the date is available.
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
Great question. You know I believe my favorite image might not be your favorite image so we let couples create their own albums. We recommend Social Print Studio - they have quite a few album designs to choose from, they are amazing, and nothing is over $60. Win/Win am I right?
