frequently asked questions

How many photos will I receive?

For Weddings the amount typically ranges from 800 to 1200 photos. Or about 100 per hour of coverage. Keep in mind, the longer we are there to shoot, the more photos you will receive! For Portrait Sessions, the amount is kind of completely unpredictable, but typically range from 50-150ish!

When do I get my photos?

If you are a Wedding client, you will receive your photos approximately 90 days after your wedding day. You will then have the option to purchase wedding books and prints. If you are a Portrait Session client, you will receive your photos in approximately 3 weeks.

What is a shot list?

For Weddings we ask for a simple list of the family photos that need to be captured after the ceremony. For example: bride + MOB, bride + groom + MOB +FOB. This ensures that we don’t leave anybody out! For Portraits Sessions, no need for this! We got you!

Do we need to provide a meal for you during the wedding reception?

Yes! We take time to eat when you eat so that we are finished when you are. We don’t want to miss any important moments or details!

Do you do body or massive edits in photoshop?

We don’t. We are real life photographers. We take photos of things the way they are 🙂 If want a truck in your photos – bring a truck. If you want snow on a mountain – we better go hiking! HAHA

Can we have the raw files?

We do not offer raw or unedited files to our clients. But don’t worry you will get all the best of the best in your gallery!!

Send us an email and we will share our packages with you. After reviewing the packages, let us know what best suits your business needs. Need a custom package and proposal?

Humble brag – it is never too early to get on our calendar! We ask that clients book us at least a month to two months before they want to begin the branding and/or rebranding process. The process can take two to four months depending on your business needs.

For example, if you want to launch your website in the new year, we should begin the process in the fall.

During the design process we will meet a total of (4) times – (1) meeting will be held over a Zoom Conference call and (3) meetings will be in person. The Zoom Conference Call will be the initial consultation call to see if The Malicote Team is a good fit for you. From there we will build a proposal and get to work on your project!

What's the difference between a Brand Guide vs. a Style Guide?

A Brand Guide is like a rule book on how to communicate your brand. It lays out your logos, secondary logos, logo marks, color palette, and typography! A Brand Guide also defines your target audience, voice, and obstacles you may face…it reminds you of your mission especially on the hard days when you need reminding. A Style Guide includes logos, secondary logos, logo marks, color palette, and typography. It’s basically the same as a Brand Guide without the feeling (i.e. the target audience, voice, obstacles, and mission) attached. We offer both to suit whatever is best for you and your business!
