What are the steps to book us at AO Studios?

First, you will need to send us a quick note via email or on our contact page to give us an idea of the event date, budget, and a quick idea of what your vision and goal is for your special day.

Once received, we will set up a quick coffee chat to go over your wedding day details. If you don’t drink coffee, no worries, there’s always a drink for you!

We’ll have a consultation, go over how we fit into the picture, provide recommendations, show you our past work, work with you to reach your goals, and work on a plan for your experience moving forward.

We will set up virtual touchpoints leading to the day of your wedding to align ourselves to your needs and keep communication open even after your wedding day to answer any additional questions you have.

*Due to COVID-19, we are currently having virtual chats, not to worry, it’ll be fun!

How many photos do we get?

This depends on the size of your wedding. On average you can expect to get 700 and above pictures for a full day wedding. This will include color, black and white, retouched/ edited images in high resolution.

For your engagement session, you can expect to receive between 50 to 80 edited color, black and white images.

How long will it take to get the photos?

It will take approximately 7 – 10 weeks to get the final images. However, we will send you a sneak peek online within a few days of your event to share with your friends and family.

We know you want to share your special day as soon as you can and we are here for it! Our final images include editing and color-correcting so that we provide the best out of your engagement.

I am not the best at being in front of a camera. Is this a problem?

That is okay. We have a consultation initially to get to know you better and understand your personality. We’ll discuss all of our processes with you to help you feel comfortable working together. We also offer engagement shoots in all our wedding packages to give you a feel of what to expect from working with a photographer and work on an approach that suits your preference.

Since we shoot in a candid style/ documentary manner, you’ll barely notice you are being photographed, and when we need to, we can direct and pose you as needed.
