Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you been doing this?

I've had a camera in my hand since 2005. I got my first paid gig in 2009 - a birthday party for a friend of my mom's. I started photographing weddings in 2013 and have almost always had a job where a camera is in my hand.

How do you photograph candid events?

I photograph candid events the way it sounds - candidly. I'll float through your event to capture significant details and moments, as well as guests enjoying themselves and any posed photographs you'd like. There is a minimum of two hours when you book me for an event and I'll deliver all images in an online gallery for you and guests to view and download.

What sort of events do you photograph?

I have photographed everything from wedding and baby showers to proms and pre-prom events, to memorial services.

My favorite candid event was several years ago at the World Poker Championships in Atlantic City, NJ.

How far will you travel?

Most commonly, I work in the Greater Philadelphia Area.

I've photographed as far north as Rhode Island and as far south as lower Delaware. I've gone as far east as the New Jersey shore, and as far west as Lancaster, PA.

For any travel outside of 60 miles round trip, I include a travel fee of $0.57 per mile.

How many images do we get from our event?

Approximately 50-75 images per hour of coverage, but really it depends on what's happening. If you have a lot of meaningful details or traditions during your event, you'll end up with more photos than if you have a simple event with mostly candid photos.

When will we get our photos?

Galleries are delivered two weeks after the event.

Can we print our photos?

PLEASE print your photos. I can't stress it enough. Hang them on your walls, hold them in your hands. Give them to your friends and family, use them for holiday cards. Your hard drives and flash drives will fail eventually, and your cloud storage will fill up in time. I could talk for a long time about the importance of printing your photos. You can order prints directly through your online gallery or through any professional printing service you'd like. If you need recommendations, I'm happy to offer suggestions.

Can I post my pictures online?

Absolutely. Please post your pictures online - and please tag me! The best advertising is word of mouth and sharing your photos online helps new clients find me.

You can find me online on Instagram at @cassondrawoodphoto, on Facebook under Cassondra Wood Photography, and on TikTok under @ohsnapcass.

Can you retouch my images?

All images delivered receive what we call global edits - color correction, cropping, exposure correction and general adjustments. In addition to this, I go in further and correct blemishes and skin tone to ensure you look your best on your wedding day.

Extensive retouching includes face swapping, background editing, and advanced skin retouching and can be done for $20/image.

Do we need a second photographer?

For candid events of less than 100 people, the answer is usually no. If you have a larger event with more things happening, I may suggest hiring a second photographer just so we don't miss anything important while photographing something else.

You can add a second photographer to your event for $60/hour.

What kind of retainer do I need to pay upfront?

All events require a 25% retainer to hold your date up front. Full payment is due two weeks before your event and funds are always held in a separate account until your event is complete.

Payments can be made by credit card through your client invoice. I can also accept cash, check and informal methods such as Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, and CashApp.

How far will you travel for my event?

I've traveled up to 6 hours away for events and sessions.

One hour of travel is included in all bookings. Outside of that, I charge the IRS rate for all other mileage.

Should I tip?

This is tricky. You can absolutely tip if you'd like to. Is it expected? No. Is it appreciated? Always. If you're satisfied with the service you received and you'd like to give a tip, please do. If you don't want to tip but you're still happy with your service, a great review is always appreciated too.

Uncomfortable tipping in cash? That's okay! A tip can be anything unexpected - a handwritten note, a to-go bag of dessert, a bottle of wine, or a gift card. The options are endless and anything thoughtful is appreciated.
