Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book?
Please email me at Jacobcabral.firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a contact form on Jacobcabral.com and I will get back to you ASAP!
Are there any requirements before booking with you?
Before booking a date with me, we set up an in-person consultation to ensure that it’s a great match, let’s get some coffee/tea and some brunch or just hang out!
Do you require a retainer deposit?
Yes, in order to save the date, I require a 30% retainer non- refundable deposit.
What payment methods do you accept?
I accept credit card, Paypal, checks and cash! Credit card is accepted through the invoice that I will send right before booking. Note that credit card and Paypal are subject to a 4% fee.
Do you offer any discounts?
During this rough time I am offering a 10% discount to any first responders and vets and 20% off albums.
So I booked my wedding date with you, what is next?
Great!!! Now we will talk about a date for the engagement shoot and will set up another small meeting to talk about the wedding schedule!
What is the typical turn-around for full-day weddings?
2-3 months. If it’s a smaller wedding, 1-2 months (City-hall, elopement).
If I ordered an album how long does it take to receive?
It usually takes about a month after you finish choosing the photos from the finished gallery.
What is the process for an album?
After you receive your gallery, you will choose the photos that you’d want in the album. I will then arrange and lay them out on a mock album (pdf). After your approval, I will send it out for printing! It’s super easy and engaging process you can do with your newlywed!
What is the turnaround for an engagement session?
How would you describe your style of shooting?
Aside from getting posed pics, I like getting a lot of detailed or documentary type pics as well! I’m into street photography and fashion, so sometimes I like getting pics of things that would catch those editorial-like vibes.
How would you describe your editing style?
I like going for more of a crisp, almost film-like edit. I like it this way because the colors are more true to what happens that day. If I see a picture that looks very dramatic and moody, I tend to edit it as a black and white.
How many pictures will be delivered for my full-day wedding?
So, at first I used to edit A LOT. but after awhile I realize that maybe clients don’t need 5 pictures of the same thing. To keep it brief, it’s based on situation, but you will for sure get a minimum of 400 edits.
Can I get the RAW files?
Unfortunately no. When I deliver, I want it to be the best of the best!
Do you have a second-shooter?
Yes. I use a second shooter for full-day weddings! His name is Kevin Reber (@kevin.reber)
Do you use flash?
It depends on the situation. But yes, I use off-camera flash for most receptions if lighting is insubstantial.
I’m not good at posing, will you direct us?
YES. I find this to be one of the best experiences with my couples!
Do you require a retainer deposit?
Yes, in order to save your date you must pay a retainer.
Can I buy an album even though I already had my wedding?
Do you print?
I personally do not print, but I outsource to Bay Photo. If you would like to purchase prints from your session or wedding you can do so through my delivery site!
I would like to have a destination wedding, are you able to travel?
no.. jk wth, HELL YEAH!
Do you prefer meat or fish?
Hmm both! jk, I am fine with either 😛
