FAQ

Do you travel? What about Destination weddings?

We are ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS up for traveling! 

Travel expenses?

Each wedding that is over one hour of driving time will include travel expenses. Every wedding is different, but we are happy to work with you and figure out the best way to make this happen!

Do we get the full rights to our photos?

Every session includes the rights to print your photos wherever and however you'd like however, this does not provide you with the rights to alter the image editing. We do suggest that you order straight from your gallery in order to get the very best quality of prints!

Can we have the RAW files?

We do not provide clients with RAW files. We work extremely hard to give each client our unique style of photography. Unedited files would not represent our brand if someone else would end up editing them.

Can I see a full wedding sample?

Absolutely! If this is something you're interested in, make sure to let us know a few details about your wedding day so we can send you one that is comparable to your dream day! 

What kind of equipment do you have?

We shoot with Canon 5D Mark IIIs, and use only prime lenses. Steph's go-to lenses are the 50mm 1.2 & 35mm 1.4 alongside her beloved 100mm macro lens. We prefer natural light, but will also always be prepared with additional lighting if necessary.

How long WILL IT take for you to edit my photos?

In our contract it states that you will have your wedding photos back within eight weeks of your wedding. Sometimes we can get them back a little early depending on the time of year and how many weddings we are shooting. We want to edit and sort each wedding to the best of our abilities and take pride in the quality of photos we deliver. We won’t compromise the quality of the photos we provide to deliver them sooner.

Will you photoshop my images?

Every image is specially edited, and we will remove blemishes or anything that is not natural to your face or body. We do not remove tattoos, or liquify bodies to make you look different. We believe that each person is created beautifully and we will not take it upon ourselves to change that!

can we read your contract before we book?

Yes! Just let us know that you're interested in reading over our contract when you inquire! If there are any specific areas you are wondering about, feel free to ask!

do you blog every session or wedding?

Unfortunately, will the high volume of sessions throughout the year we are unable to feature every wedding. This is not to say that your wedding was not an amazing day. It could very well be one that we blog down the road.

How will I receive my photos?

For engagement & portrait sessions you will receive your images on a secure online gallery for downloading and ordering. Starting in 2018, weddings will also be delivered through a gallery, and you can purchase a thumb-drive of your wedding day al la carte!

Do you make wedding albums?

SURE DO! We design and print albums for you and cater to your very favorite photos from your day. We have a few sample albums here in the office and would love to show you if you're interested! 

Have you ever shot at MY venue?

We have had the pleasure to shoot at many local venues, but our creativity is sparked when we arrive at a location that we have not yet shot at. We love being able to individualize your photographs based on your wedding style and you venue is a huge part of that! We don't feel that it is a downfall when we haven't shot a specific location or venue before!

How long have you been shooting?

Steph's first wedding was in 2011, & Hazel Lining launched in 2013. Although she had been second shooting for years before doing it on her own! Each second shooter has their own set of talents and experiences, but have all been personally trained under HLP.

Did you go to school for photography?

Steph graduated from Antonelli Institute of Art & Photography in 2013.

Do you offer mentorships?

Absolutely. Most of our second-shooters started out by just be mentored and pushed by Steph to pursue their goals in photography.
