Ash & Rich are the owners and principal photographers; they are available for bookings individually or as a dynamic duo. The Pizzutis have been trained at Brooks Institute of Photography and have spent years creating a distinct style. Associate photographers are available for extra coverage or on their own. All associates have been carefully selected and trained to give that superior experience that the Pizzutis are known for delivering. Whoever you choose to shoot your wedding will be available for phone and face to face consultations, so rest assured that a stranger is not going to show up at your wedding.
Do I get the rights to the Digital Files?
Unless noted, the sale of digital files comes with a limited usage license. Basically, you'll have the rights to print and make copies for unlimited personal use and we'll supply you with a PDF, with your license written out, for you to print and take with you to your lab.
What do you mean limited? Although you will have the rights to print and reproduce these images, the ownership of the images (copyright) remains with the studio. This means that the studio is allowed to use the images for publication, advertisement and display promotions. It also means, you, as the client, are not allowed to sell the images, submit them for publication (without our consent), or distribute them to ANY third parties. If a wedding vendor would like copies, we'd be happy to prepare files for their use. Furthermore, you cannot claim them as your own work and we ask that you not upload them to third party sites to sell them to your guests.
In regards to your use of the images on the web, we just ask that ONLY the web/watermarked images are posted to any social media outlet. This is to protect our business and our your privacy from people who would use them unlawfully.
What is the turn around time?
As fast as humanly possible while achieving superior results. We want you to still be in wedding bliss when you experience your photos. It's also important that we work our post production to give you the best product possible. That means editing the work to finished viewing gallery. A two week turn around is set for the first preview of images. The complete set come about a week later and your USB drive is usually sent out about a month from your wedding date.
Do you have backups in place?
OF COURSE! All of our photographers arrive with multiple cameras, lenses and lighting gear to get the job done under any circumstances. We belong to an AMAZING network of photographers who can help in an emergency situation. Having two photographers at your wedding is an automatic backup, so when both carry backups of their gear, well that's like a quadruple backup system, no?
My wedding is in ... Do you Travel?
Heck ya! We love destination weddings. If you are ok with reasonable travel costs, we are there!
What is your Booking Policy
In order to lock us in for the date, we'll need a signed contract and retainer and then we're all yours!
The Retainer is 1/3rd of initial order, with 2 more scheduled payments; the last being 15 days prior to the event.
