Can you hold the date for me?

How do you require payment?

A retainer of 40% is required to reserve your date and book our photography services. Final payment is due seven days prior to your wedding day

Can we substitute our engagement shoot for more hours on the wedding day?

We offer the engagement shoot as a complimentary part of your wedding package, and we feel that it’s an essential part of our process. Many of our clients book us online without meeting in person. The engagement shoot allows us to meet and get to know you before photographing you on one of the most important days of your life. It allows you get comfortable with having your pictures taken and breaks that ice.

Where do you live? Do you travel?

We live in Toronto (downtown), Canada – we LOVE to travel and are happy to travel to other destinations for weddings. All that is required is flights for 2 (Anthony and Angela) and a small travel fee that covers our incidentals and hotel for at least 3 nights typically the night we arrive, the night of the wedding and the night after.

Can family and friends take pictures with their cameras?

For sure! It’s your wedding. If your family members would like a duplicate of the formal photographs, we will gladly step aside for them after we have ensured we’ve captured a photo with all eyes on us. We do ask to be the only photographer present during bridal party and couple portrait sessions.

Do we need to feed you at the reception?

It would be a nice gesture but is not required. It does not have to be the same as your sit-down meal. Many caterers offer “vendor meals” as an option. We’d prefer to be fed when you are fed, not afterwards. We do not take pictures while you are eating and not at your most photogenic. When you’re finished eating, we want to be done as well to continue your coverage.

Do you offer discounts for off-season or non-saturday events?

Please contact us and let us know if you have specific budgetary needs.

If we run overtime, will you stay?

Absolutely, if you would like us to stay overtime with your permission we will continue covering your wedding and bill for those hour when return from your honeymoon. Our additional hourly rate is $300

If we decide to commission Damion Rae Photography for our wedding, when should we book?

A.S.A.P. because we cannot “hold” dates or “pencil you in” – dates are booked when the deposit is received. Most of our commissions contact us a full calendar year or more in advance.

Can we give you a shot list of photographs we want you to take?

It would be helpful to have family groupings written down for us in advance for the family photos, however we will not work from a “check list” or repeated requests for posed images. It is very helpful to know which important relatives and friends are coming to your wedding and if any events bear special significance, but a “shot lists” is counterproductive. Please understand that we will generally capture all those images without prompting.
