SArnold Photo FAQ’s


Do you travel for weddings? 

Yes, absolutely! I love to travel and see other parts of the country (or world, for that matter.) I find one of the most incredible things about photography are the limitless backdrops and locations to create standout versatility and artistry in images. 

What are the first steps to securing you as our wedding photographer? 

After meeting to see if we are the right fit for one another, a signed contract and non-refundable deposit of 50% is due to reserve your wedding day. I will send along details for planning your engagement session and/or wedding day. 

Do we have rights to the images? 

Yes, I include a USB flash drive with all the best digital images to my clients. These photos can also be accessed through the online gallery. Once visiting your gallery, you can click “select” and then download the images you’d like to save to your desktop or mobile device. 

How many images can we expect to receive? 

For graduates and lifestyle portraits somewhere between 90 – 120 images depending on the length of the shoot. Engagement sessions include 100-120 images; weddings between 800 – 1000 images. See investment page for more details.

What type of equipment do you use? 

Canon 6D, Sigma 1.4 35 mm lens, Tamron 2.8 70-200 mm and Tamron 2.8 24-70 mm. My backup camera is a Canon 60D.

I stay away from harsh lights and strobe lights. Not only do I find it cumbersome when I am moving around from outdoor to indoor, but I prefer as natural light as possible. I travel to weddings with a Promaster flash and a small strobe light with a warm yellow/orange filter. It’s incredibly useful for the dance floor at bar and bat mitzvahs and weddings. 

All post-production takes place on my 15″ Macbook Pro with retina display. I use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CS6 for editing. All photos can be found in my gallery www.sarnold.zenfolio.com. There are many gallery programs out there, but I have stuck with Zenfolio for the past seven years because of their terrific customer services, easy navigation, and customization usage. The print quality is also superb! All prints are created on e-surface paper with a matte or glossy finish. Photos are shipped in a timely fashion and arrive in a clear package, making transporting and storing easy. 

What areas of Colorado do you mostly photograph in? 

Colorado Springs, Denver and Vail, however, I am always looking for new places. As I have mentioned before, that mountain backdrop doesn’t get old!
