I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV. I also have a variety of lenses that I bring with me to every wedding and most photo sessions. I also have a variety of flashes I can use, so indoor photos aren't a problem! Back at my studio I have a full indoor studio equipped with multiple backgrounds props and professional studio lights and as for the outdoor studio... 12 acres to rom and play with ponds, meadow grasses and woods galore!
Where are you located?
I am located just south of Melrose MN, just off of I-94. Its super easy to find, here are directions and a short video of our indoor/outdoor studio......turn to go south off I-94, Left at Dairy Queen, go 2 miles, you will see our "ALee Photography" sign on your left. Address: 32343 361st Street Melrose MN 56352. VIDEO: https://video214.com/play/Yqj6kkPDlSbf7RPjYvaqOA/s/dark
What is your turn around time for all photo products?
We will have all your products available approximately 2 weeks after your photoshoot. So weather its an engagement shoot, maternity, graduating senior, or wedding... you will have your proof products within 2 weeks of when you were photographed.
What do you include in your editing?
I includes all basic editing, basic color correction, black and white tones, cropping and sharpening. Retouching is available, but is not included in the price of wedding packages. However, it is complimentary with any wedding album order. An example of retouching would be removing a blemish or taking out an exit sign over a door way.
Do you travel?
For wedding travel ALee Photography is happy to travel 60 miles (total-not one way) for free from 56352. Additional miles are by quote. If you would like us to travel to the location of your choice for your engagement shoot, it will be $2 per mile from the zip code 56352.
Does ALee Photography offer print products?
Yes, ALee photography currently offers high quality prints, gorgeous gallery wrapped canvases, and custom coffee table albums and more. Set up a product meeting for more information.
Once your photos are edited you will be able to access them via online gallery that will allow you to download the photos onto your computer or purchase prints directly from your gallery. Purchasing prints/products/albums are not required but the option is there just in case. Once you have downloaded your photos onto your computer you can print them from wherever you would like, though I would suggest staying away from printing at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc. I would recommend using Mpix.com or printing through your online gallery which uses WHCC and then is mailed right to your home.
How do I know how much coverage I will need on my wedding day?
How many hours of photography do I need? ALee Photography currently offers three collections, 5 hours, 8, hours and 10 hours. All of the collections include engagement sessions and the printing rights to both your engagement and wedding photographs.
When deciding on how many hours you need for your wedding day coverage there are a few things you’ll want to to ask yourself. First, do you want some getting ready photos with your bridesmaids and groomsmen? And do you want those epic detail shots of your dress, the shoes, engagement and wedding rings, flowers and so on. If you do, then you’ll probably want to go with the 8 hour collection for sure and possibly the 10 hour collection.
A typical 8 hour wedding collection is going to get you some detail photographs through the first dances.
