Photography is a HUGE decision, and you probably have A Ton of questions.

So I have compiled a list of questions that I get asked a lot. If you don’t find your answer here, please feel free to contact me. 


There are so many photographers out there. Why should we pick you?

The truth is that there are probably only a handful of photographers that will be a great fit for you.  Things such as personality, photographic style, budget, and experience will all matter to you. So here it is: I am honest. I am great with your friends and family. I am are great at what I do. I am not the cheapest nor am I the most expensive. But, there is a reason they say, “You get what you pay for.” Even if I am not the best fit for you, feel free to contact and ask for advice; I would love to get you in contact with some of my great photographer friends!

Can I see a full wedding?

Absolutely!  I actually encourage it. You can e-mail me at portraitsbyheather@yahoo.com and I would love to show you some full wedding galleries. 

How can I book Heather Cantrelle Photography for my wedding?

Please use the "contact" page in the menu at the top left of this website to fill out our short form.  I will then tell you if I am available for your wedding date and send you additional information on my wedding collection and pricing. Please note that each year I receive several inquiries, and I can only hold these dates with a signed agreement and retainer. 

How far in advance should I book you?

You should book your photographer as soon as you know you’ve found the one! The most coveted Saturdays book up 12-18 months in advance!

How does Heather Cantrelle Photography define its style?

The word photojournalistic gets tossed around a lot, but what we live for is those authentic real moments. I try to be as non-obtrusive as possible for most of the wedding day to allow you to live your special day! I do combine those moments with some of our creative couples and bridal portraits that will create a full wedding gallery that is not only authentic, but also beautiful.My editing style is sharp and clean with bright vivid colors.  


Do you travel for weddings? 

Absolutely!  All that is required is airfare and lodging in addition to a package selection. 

How many photos will we get and how long does it take?

I don’t have a set number and it all really depends on the size, length and amount of details of your wedding. Expect anywhere from 500-700 for the average 8 hour wedding. I aim to have your photos in an online gallery ready for viewing in 4-6 weeks. 

Do I get the copyright for the pictures?

As the creator of the photos we do retain copyright but like most photographers we grant a print release which allows you to print at any lab of your choosing and share your photos as much as you want.  

Do I get the RAW files?

Nope. Part of hiring me is my curation and editing of your wedding day photos. Documenting the day is only part of what a professional photographer does.  It takes a lot experience in post production to get to just the right look that I intended when I captured the image, not to mention the special software. What you will get is high resolution images of a finished product.
