WEDDING ENGAGEMENT FAMILY FAQ BLOG CONTACT LOCATIONS
What is your style of wedding photography?Journalistic with added dimensions in artistic composition and classic portraiture. I am unobtrusive and focus on artistically capturing the emotional story of your wedding day.
What is your specialty?Wedding Photography and Portrait Photography. A favorite is a wedding where the bride and groom want to artistically capture the story of their special day. Another favorite is a creative on-location romantic or family portraiture session.
What makes you different as a wedding and portrait photographer?First and foremost I love what I do! My mission is to "Capture loving moments in sophisticated art." I have over 40 years of in-depth study and experience in photography. During the last 10 years I have been working full-time as a professional wedding and portrait photographer, and still am. I'm constantly pushing myself to improve.
Where are you located?My service is centered in Bucks County, PA. I work from a home office in North Wales, PA and have a second office in Jim Thorpe, PA. This area in Southeastern Pennsylvania is convenient to locations such as Allentown, Doylestown, Bethlehem, The Poconos, Reading, Lancaster, Pottstown, New Hope, Philadelphia PA, and many more. A two hour drive is a normal travel for my weddings.
How many weddings do you book in one day?Only one - exclusively yours. This enables me to arrive early, to get mentally centered, and to be free of time pressure. And, this provides you with greater flexibility in planning your wedding day. Want to change your starting time? No problem.
Will you be our actual wedding photographer?Yes. I will be your photographer at your wedding.
How long have you been in business as a professional wedding photographer?In the past, I captured weddings on a part time weekend basis since the early 1980's. Since May 2005 I have been capturing weddings as my full time and only job. I plan to be doing this for many more years!
Our wedding is on a weekday. Are you available on weekdays?Yes!
Are all of the photos on this website captured by you, personally?Yes. BecauseYouLove.com is my website, and it only displays photographs that were captured personally by Robert Winton. All of the wedding images that you see here on my website were captured during real weddings. All of the engagement and family portraits were captured from real portrait sessions. The images are from real weddings, real people, real moments, real emotion!
Do you have examples of your work?Yes. Several. My gallery of journalistic wedding photography features images from weddings.
What's the soonest we can see our photographs?In about one week your beautiful on-line gallery will feature selected images from your wedding or portrait session. You could visit it from an internet cafe anywhere in the world. Too busy after your honeymoon to email images to your family and friends? Then simply email them a link to your gallery!
Will we get all of the images from our wedding photography?Yes. You will receive the complete collection of the original full-size digital jpg images from the camera. They are gently and individually hand optimized for brightness, color and clarity. They remain full-size as captured in the camera and in the original colors so that you will enjoy the maximum creative potential of every image for the future. You will have rights to keep and print all of your wedding photography images for your personal use. I call them hostage free!
Will our complete camera image collection be available promptly?Yes, in about 2 weeks after your wedding.
Are Artistically Enhanced Prints professionally retouched?Yes. Every Artistically Enhanced image begins with the original camera image. A proprietary 25 step process is then used to bring out the subtle differences in fine shades and variations inside your image. Additional special effects, such as black/white, sepia, spot-color and much more, may be used to express a nuance in expression. Finally this artistically enhanced image is developed onto real photographic print paper (not ink jet). Your Artistically Enhanced Print is a rich photography heirloom that deserves to be displayed on a wall in your new home!
Will our Storybook Wedding Album be custom designed?Yes. Our work together continues into Robert's Signature Design of your Journalistic Storybook album. You will be invited to select your favorite images for your album and you will see your creative artistic design transpire. And, you will have input in every stage of the process as your custom album takes shape!
Do we get the Photoshop files used to create the Online Gallery, Storybook Album and Artistically Enhanced Prints?Sorry, no. I shamelessly admit that I do not share my Photoshop files. Many of my techniques are proprietary. They are created to hopefully provide your Online Gallery, Storybook Albums, and Artistically Enhanced Prints for you and your family -- if that's your wish.
What type of photographic equipment will you use during our wedding?Professional level Nikon digital SLR cameras, lenses, and lighting: like those you often see used by magazine photo-journalists. My cameras are extremely high quality, light, unobtrusive and quick. My lenses and cameras are superior to the common consumer grades.
Can my guests take pictures?Yes. I actually do enjoy the interaction with guest photographers, most often. Please just consider how you'll manage their number and behavior ... as they can invent surprising ways to intrude into your moments and to damage my lighting. Further, they might not understand your wishes.
Do you use digital or film cameras?Digital. I have 40+ years of total photography experience, and began capturing my first part-time 'weekend weddings' about 30 years ago. So, long ago, I captured weddings on film. I transitioned from film to digital during the year 2006. Today is all digital.
Do you have backup equipment?Yes. I have three or more of all important equipment. All of my cameras capture images simultaneously to two different memory cards for added reliability. Back at the office, multiple image backups are made with error checking software, and secured inside a heavy floor safe. I will take care of your priceless digital files so that they get safely into your hands.
Do you offer discounts and bonuses, and do you take credit cards?Yes. Discounts and bonuses are offered. Options are 'haggle free' and they are openly published for everyone to see here Wedding Photography Options and Packages Credit cards are accepted.
Are you a full-time photographer?Yes.
Can we chat with you while we plan our wedding?Yes. You will have direct contact with me as your wedding photographer. You will have my direct email address and cell phone number.
