Do you travel?
Absolutely! I love the open road. I will drive any open road within 90 miles of Austin, TX at no charge. (small travel fee for anything further)
Do you travel for destination weddings?
Yes I do. I have my passport ready to get stamped! In addition to my normal rates, you would only have to pay for air fair and lodging.
How far in advance do we need to book?
If I am available, I’ll be there tomorrow. However, two weeks gives me time to at least talk with you and get a feel for what you like. Usually couples book a few months in advance.
What is your media preference?
I shoot with Nikon digital cameras (DSLR).
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Within a week or two I will put together a teaser of roughly 50 photos.
The remaining photos will be fully edited and ready to enjoy in 4-8 weeks.
I know that’s killer when you are waiting but the industry standard is 3 months.
Is there an online gallery I can share with friends and family?
Yes. I will email you a link to your private (password protected) gallery with which you can share with whomever you choose.
How long until I can view my photos?
Since I go through each picture individually, the editing process can take up to 4-8 weeks. But I will have a sneak peak of 25-50 photos ready to view within a week or two.
Can I post the photos on Facebook?
You can share all the photos you want on any social media you want! If you do give me a little photo credit in the caption that would be awesome. =]
How would you describe your working style?
When it is time for poses with family/wedding party/etc. I move people around and set things up how I think looks best. During the reception I blend into the background and capture the candid and REAL interactions of you and your wedding guests.
Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?
Yes Please! I love to get a feel of what you are looking for, not just what I usually do. Plus that opens new and exciting adventures I can take with my camera. I’m always looking for those!
Who will be the photographer at my wedding?
The lead photographer will be me, John Mansfield. If you choose a package with a second photographer, I have a handful of photographers in the area that I’ve grown to be friends with and I really love their work so they would be second. I do have a few interns that will assist with equipment and act as a second photographer, but I will always treat you like I’m the only one (so I don’t miss anything).
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I officially started All Heart Photography in the spring of 2013, but I have been photographing weddings since 2010.
