Frequent Questions

Booking Your Photographer

Have you photographed at my venue before?

I am frequently in new locales as a destination wedding photographer. It keeps me – and your photographs – creative. When I am commissioned to photograph an event at a new venue, I scout the ceremony and reception sites in advance. 


Can you recommend a wedding planner?

Yes! I adore wedding planners and highly recommend hiring one for a seamless experience. I am well connected in the wedding industry and I would be happy to refer you to some of the best planners and designers all over the world. 


What makes you worth your fee?

Photographing your wedding is an honor I take very seriously. Many of my clients become like family. 

You are investing in peace of mind and experience. It has taken me 20+ years to hone my craft. That vast experience is showcased in the photographs I create for you. I can work anywhere under any circumstances. 

Beyond photographic expertise, I also offer our extensive knowledge of products, software, equipment, album design, production, and delivery. Above all, I bring a boutique mindset that prioritizes superlative service.

So, stay true to your heart. After all, if you splurge on one service at your wedding, let it be photography because you can never recreate the magic of your wedding day. 


How many years have you been a wedding photographer?

I have been a full-time wedding photographer since 2004. Photography is the only job I've ever had. I worked staff photojournalist at at Athens-Banner Hearald from 2000-2003. I covered news events and community stories. I have personally photographed over 400 weddings. 

 


Working with Cameron

How do I view my photos for the first time?

You will receive a lovely USB drive with a special photo gift from me. You will also have access to a private online gallery to view the comprehensive collection of photos. 

The online gallery will be available for one year from your wedding date to order prints, share with family and friends and review your wedding album.


What's the timeframe for delivery of our photos?

I am committed to delivering your wedding photos in a timely fashion. On average I deliver the image to you online in three weeks but no more than five. 


Do we get a copy of our digital negatives?

Yes! Digital negatives are included with every wedding and engagement service. You may download your images images from your gallery. Additionally with larger events I will mail you a USB drive with your images. Please backup your digital files. 

In my experience, clients who order printed photos from me are thrilled with my expert adjustments, which I call Level II retouching. All photos need a little Photoshop "love" to meet my standards of excellence.

I also offer digital negatives from family portraits and weekday intimate weddings. Inquire with me for information. 


Do you sell albums?

Yes. Most of my clients choose to order an album through me. An album is so much more than a book – it's an heirloom piece that will be precious to your family for generations. If you could look through your grandmother's wedding album and see her legacy unfold, how much would that be worth to you?  

When you celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary, will you pull out a USB drive and plug it into your laptop, or will you open your beautiful album and pore through it, surrounded by family and friends?


Do you work with a second photographer?

Cameron is the primary photographer at your weding. Cameron has associates and partners all over the world and works with talented, experienced second photographers. The primary and secondary photographer work as a team at your wedding, and we are able to cover your wedding from two perspectives. There are certain circumstances that require an assistant and or third photographer. 


What are your travel fees?

Nearly all of my weddings are destinations and my fee is is custom quoted. Typically I will estimate and  include my travel; however, if clients are hosting their event in a remote destination or resort, we typically stay at the host resort or venue because we view the location as part of the story. 

Our travel concierge books all travel for Cameron and her team.


Will you photograph our rehearsal dinner and welcome party?

Many of my clients commission me to photograph their rehearsal dinner or welcome party and if I am traveling to a destination event, I almost always attend the ceremony rehersal to make sure I understand the venue and the proposed timing at the location. It's a great opportunity for me to meet everyone and it's makes the story of your weekend complete.

Please inquire about rehearsal dinner coverage or full weekend coverage. Most destination events have casual and fun rehearsal dinners planned and they are worth capturing for couple of hours, at a minimum. It gives you an opportunity to be photographed in something other than your wedding day attire and usually offers some fun guest photos. We have photographed everything from sailing, helicopter rides, horseback tours, via ferrata excursions and tennis tournaments. We love an adventure-filled weekend. 


Do you photograph elopements?

I am based in Northern Arizona and Southern Utah and it's an absolutely gorgeous location for elopements, proposals and intimate weddings. Intimate events are quoted based on my demand and availability. 


Portraits/ Non-Event Photography

What is a documentary portrait session?

At this time, I'm taking portraits for former clients and their referrals. I love witnessing our couples as their family grows. My approach to portraits is candid and best suited for clients who understand my approach. 

My documentary sessions usually include 2-3 hours of photography coverage and the digital files. We focus on everyday events that your family experiences. Those "ordinary" moments like taking a walk, baking cookies, dress up and at-home birthday parties are often overlooked as opportunities. They are hard to capture as a parent. It's fun to be 'in' the photos and have someone capture those milestones for you. 

Of course, we will capture some “posed” photos too, but the primary focus of your session is real moments. It's a great experience for young families, as little ones love to show off their toys, tricks and personalities in their home.


Where can I view your editorial or commercial work?

Cameron also works with select few corporate and editiorial clients outside the wedding industry. View our commercial work here: www.cameronclarkphoto.com
