Questions for Your Wedding Photographer

Don’t be afraid to ask these questions to your wedding photographer. An experienced professional will be happy to provide answers.

How many weddings in San Francisco have you photographed?

Sound Originals is one of the largest photography teams in the Bay Area. We’ve photographed hundreds and hundreds of weddings across California. In other words, you can trust us to be reliable.

What equipment do you use?

Our photographers use a variety of professional cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and Fuji. We use prime and zoom lenses, including a 50mm lens for beautiful portraits.

What is your emergency back-up plan in case the photographer gets sick?

We always have an emergency back-up plan. You’ll have a designated back-up photographer. As a result, you’ll never get stranded on your wedding day. We all know how unpredictable the world can be, especially with COVID. That’s why we believe in planning for emergencies.

Do you use dual card slots on your cameras?

Yes, we use two memory cards (or SD Cards). As a result, we’ll take two copies of every image.

How do you safely store images after the wedding is over?

Our photographers back up their images to external hard drives and cloud storage. Your memories are priceless. As a result, we take extreme care to store duplicate copies of the images from your wedding.

Do you have professional liability insurance?

Yes, Sound Originals is fully insured. In other words, we’re covered in unexpected situations.

Is the photographer local to San Francisco, California?

Yes. Sound Originals has a terrific team of wedding photographers who live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area. There is no travel charge for weddings in the city of San Francisco. We are happy to travel to wedding venues in the Bay Area and Northern California.

Will my wedding photos have a watermark?

No, your wedding photos will be delivered in full-resolution without a watermark or logo.

Can I print my wedding photos anywhere I want?

Yes! All of our wedding photography packages come with full print rights. As a result, you can download the full resolution versions of your images. You will receive a print release. A print release, or print rights, means you can order physical products from any lab or store. As a result, you don’t need to order them through the company. This is an important question to ask before booking a San Francisco wedding photographer. Many other photography companies might force you to buy prints through their company. This can be expensive. Sound Originals believes you should have the freedom to order prints where you want.
