Questions are good – it’s how you can be sure we’re a fit for each other! If you don’t see what you’re looking for below, just send me an email at cara [dot] rufenacht [at] gmail.com.
Q: I think I might want you to be my photographer. Is there a way to make sure before I commit?
A: I want you to be sure, too! I love this work most when I’m able to connect with your vision – I would assume you feel the same way! Before you book, let’s meet to talk about your life and what you value most about your upcoming wedding. I hope that we click, but if you don’t feel that spark, you’re not tied down. I can even recommend some other local photographers who you might like to work with.
Q: I’m ready to book! What should I do next?
A: Awesome! If you haven’t already done so, fill out the contact form on this site and I’ll send you my pricing information. Once you’ve selected the type of coverage you want for your day shoot me an email and I’ll send you a copy of my contract. Once I have a signed contract and a deposit to hold your date, you are officially booked on my calendar!
Q: Do you sell prints, albums, and canvas wraps?
A: Yep! You can have as much control as you want when it comes to your images. I sell prints, albums and canvas warps, so you can pick your favorites and let me do the running-around-town part. If you’re looking for total control or the option to print just the photos that you love (today) or maybe a full album (when you’ve had some R&R after the big celebration): I also sell a Digital Download.
Q: Speaking of Digital Download, what does that mean?
A: The digital download means you’ll be able to download all the high resolution images directly from your online gallery. No waiting for me to send you a DVD. It also comes with a photo release so you can print as many and as often as you wish.
Q: Will my guests be able to see images online?
A: Of course. I’ll create a blog post of some of my favorite images for everyone to see, and you’ll also have a gallery of all the images for family and friends to view.
Q: I’m not getting married in Pittsburgh, can I still hire you for my wedding?
A: Definitely. I love traveling! Please include these details in the comments section of the contact form so I know where I’m going.
Q: Do you have a studio?
A: Nope, not right now. Most of my sessions are on location, so I come to you. If you have a favorite place you’d like photos taken I’d love to hear about it.
