Wedding Info | Frequently Asked Questions

Having once been a bride myself, I know that selecting a wedding photographer can be quite the to-do with so many choices and options out there.  You want to make sure you’re asking all the right questions to help you pick the photographer that is the best for you and your day.  I strive to make this experience as easy as possible by keeping my wedding collections simple and also being there every step of the way to answer any questions you may have about the wedding day.

Below are some of the most commons questions I get asked. If you don’t see your question here, feel free to contact me.

How would you describe your wedding photography style?

I would describe my style in 3 words –  Natural, Modern and Elegant.  I take a documentary approach for a majority of the wedding day.  I love capturing the details, moments, and the emotions that help tell the story of your day as organically as possible.  When it comes to portraits, the same philosophy applies, while we will get the traditional and necessary formals that parents and grandparents want, I also want to capture the unique chemistry and love between my couples in a very natural and relaxed way.

What is your wedding day pricing?

Wedding collections begin at $3,950. Every wedding is unique so custom packages are also available. I suggest we set up a one-on-one consultation over the phone or in person so that I may better understand your needs for the day and recommend the best collection for you.  Feel free to send me a note via the contact form or donna@donnacheung.com.  I’d love to hear from you!

Do you collections include a second photographer?

Yes, in fact all my collections include a second photographer. With my experience, I’ve found that especially with weddings having guest counts of 100+,  it is in the couple’s best interest to have a second photographer to ensure we’re capturing every beautiful facet of your wedding day.

Will I get the hi-resolution images after the wedding?

Yes, all my wedding photography packages include all hi-resolution images with no watermarks and rights to print.

How many images do you provide?

This varies depending on how the wedding day progresses and number of coverage hours booked but generally between 50-100 images per hour.

Do you edit/retouch our images?

All final images delivered will be hand-retouched and toned for color treatment consistent with what you see across my portfolio. Light skin retouching is also included for portrait formals if necessary. Additional retouching and edits may be requested at an additional charge.

Do you edit in black & white?

Approximately 5-10% of your final delivered images will be in black & white.

How long after the wedding will my photographs be ready?

You can expect your wedding photos to be ready approximately 6-8 weeks after your wedding day.

Do you offer wedding albums?

Yes, I offer collections that includes an album or you have the option to purchase a la carte.  I offer premium, handcrafted heirloom quality flush mount albums.  I bring sample albums to all consultations so that you can see exactly what the end product looks like. Contact me to set up your consultation.

Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely! In the event your venue requires it, just let me know and I can forward a copy of my insurance along to them.

What is required to lock in my wedding day?

A non-refundable 25% retainer is required to lock in your wedding date.

How far can you travel for weddings?

I am based in Fairfield County, CT but service all of  Connecticut and the Tri-State (CT, NY, NJ ) area.  I am also available for destination weddings and offer custom rates based on location.
