WEDDING ENGAGEMENT FAMILY FAQ BLOG CONTACT
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 makes you different as a wedding and portrait photographer?First and foremost I love what I do! Furthermore, I have over 30 years of experience and during the last 9 years I've worked full-time as a professional wedding and portrait photographer. My mission is to "Capture loving moments in sophisticated art." I'm continually pushing myself to improve.
What is your specialty?Wedding Photography. My favorite is an intimate wedding where the bride and groom want to artistically capture the story of their special day. I also enjoy creative on-location engagement portraiture.
Where are you located?In Bucks County, 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.
Will we meet you to talk about our photography?Yes, you will meet with me from the very start. And you will work with me from start to finish. Personal rapport and communication with your photographer makes a huge difference in your photography and in your special day. You will have my direct cell-phone number. You will not be burdened with sales planners, photo-consultants, telemarketing or office staff.
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.
Our wedding is on a weekday. Are you available on weekdays?Certainly! As long as my calendar is open.
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 recent weddings.
What's the soonest we can see our photographs?In about one week your on-line gallery will be your first look at selected images from your wedding. 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!
Can we get all of the images from our wedding photography?Yes. You can order a complete collection of digital images from the camera. Your image collection will be provided as full-size jpg files. 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 full-size digital 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 Camera Image. First, a proprietary 25 step process is applied to the Camera Image to create the rich beauty of an Artistically Enhanced Image. Then, a special effect can optionally be added such as black/white, sepia, spot-color or much more. Finally, retouching is done before a photo lab, chosen after years of research, renders an Artistically Enhanced Print on real photographic paper, not inkjet. Your Artistically Enhanced Print is a rich photography heirloom ready to be mounted and framed!
Will our Storybook Wedding Album be custom designed?Yes. Our work together continues into the design of your Journalistic Storybook album. You will be invited to select your favorite images for your album. You will see your creative artistic design in online proofs as it transpires. And, you will have input as your custom album takes shape!
Do we get the Storybook Album and Artistically Enhanced Print files?Sorry, no. I shamelessly admit that I do not share the Photoshop files that I create for your Storybook Albums and Artistically Enhanced Prints. I create those files to hopefully provide Storybook Albums and Artistically Enhanced Prints to 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, and quick. My equipment and methods are less obtrusive. My lenses and cameras are both professional grade, which is superior to the consumer grade that is most often seen.
Can my guests take pictures?Yes. I enjoy the interaction with 'guest photographers', usually. Please just think over how you'll manage them ... as they often invent amazing new ways to intrude into moments. Further, they might not understand your wishes. In one example, to the bride's dismay, a dozen guests continually used flashes during her traditional ceremony.
Do you use digital or film cameras?I have 30+ years of photography experience and in the past have captured weddings on film. During 2006 I moved from film to all digital equipment. Professional digital cameras meet my requirements for capturing outstanding image quality.
Do you have backup equipment?Yes. I have three or more of all important equipment. My cameras capture images simultaneously to two different memory cards for added reliability.
Do you offer discounts and bonuses, and do you take credit cards?Yes. While options are 'haggle free', discounts and bonuses are offered and are openly published for everyone to see here Wedding Photography Options and Packages Credit cards are accepted.
Are you a full-time professional wedding photographer?Yes. Photography is my full-time and only profession: weekdays, weekends, day and night. Please consider Because You Love studio whether your plan is to host a 200 guest ceremony on a Saturday, or an intimate family ceremony on a Tuesday morning.
How long have you been in business as a professional wedding photographer?I have been in business, registered and insured in Pennsylvania, as a full-time professional wedding photographer since May of 2005. I plan to be doing this for many more years!
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 my direct cell phone number.
