  • FAQ

What is your style of photography?

Weddings require different styles of photography as the day progresses. For certain detail shots, I do take the time to lightly stylize them so they look their very best. For your group portraits, we make sure everyone is lightly posed in the most flattering and natural position possible. Your Bride and Groom photos are also lightly posed for an intimate and romantic feel. For most of the day, I prefer to cover your day with a documentary style, capturing real moments and real emotions as the day unfolds, unobtrusively.


Do you include a second photographer?

All our wedding coverage includes a second photographer so we don't miss a thing.  Single photographer coverage can be arranged for smaller and more intimate events.


Do you travel... what are the travel fees?

We proudly offer wedding coverage anywhere within a two hour drive of Richmond VA with no travel fees. We are also glad to photograph weddings outside that area, with minimal fees to cover possible hotel stays to ensure promptness to your event.


Can we get the digital files?

All our wedding coverage includes at least 100 edited images per hour of coverage. Print rights are conveyed with the images.


Do you edit our photographs?

YES. All of the images in your final collection are color corrected, cropped and exposure corrected for a beautiful and cohesive collection. Any photos that are selected for wall art of albums are available to be retouched at no additional cost.


How long does it take to get our images?

We take tons on images at our weddings, and it takes time to work through them all. We are proud to post several "sneak peek" images to social media in 2-3 days, a blog post with highlights from the day in 2-3 weeks, and your entire finished portfolio posted online in 6-8 weeks. Your USB is shipped shortly thereafter.


Do you have packages with videography included?

I do NOT offer videography. I prefer to focus on my talents and creative vision on still photography. I will be happy to recommend some amazing videographers, based on your goals for videography coverage.


What if you get sick and can't photograph our wedding?

First of all, I want to say, I have never missed a wedding in almost 10 years as a wedding photographer... If something crazy does happen and I cannot make it for some reason, Nicole Vance Photography will provide an equally skilled professional to handle your photography services. I have a large network of photog friends and we help and support each other in times of need. 


Do we need to provide a meal for you?

Yes. Any event great than 5 hours requires a vendor meal for each photographer. Feeding us ensures that we are at the top of our game the entire time and able to focus on being creative and present in every moment throughout your day. We prefer to eat when you eat... no one wants pictures of people eating, so it is the best time to take a moment and recharge.


How do we hire you?

We can start by meeting on the phone, or in person at our studio, located at 2405 Westwood Avenue, Suite 201. Once you are ready to book, contracts, payments and questionnaires can all be handled online in your client site. We like to make working with us as easy as possible.
