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.

What areas do you service?

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.

What do your wedding packages start at? What do they include?

You can view my list of packages on my investment page. Wedding coverage starts at $1600. Every session includes planning and timeline phone calls, an online gallery with unlimited downloads, and printing rights so you can print photos yourself. Wedding galleries are online for one year, with the option to extend.

How many images do we get from our wedding?

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 ceremony or reception, you'll end up with more photos than if you have a simple wedding with mostly candid photos.

When will we get our photos?

The processing time for engagement and portrait sessions is 2 weeks. For weddings, it's 6 weeks. I usually send out sneak peek photos within 48 hours because I'm so excited for you to see your images.

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?

Honestly, yes. Adding a second photographer allows me to be in two places at once. You'll get multiple angles of important events, both a wide and close-up shot of the kiss at your ceremony, and guest reactions to your speeches. It helps condense your timeline too - both partners can be photographed getting ready at the same time. Two photographers means we can photograph you coming down the aisle AND your partner's reaction to seeing you, the candid dancing shots AND the group photo of your friends from college, the reaction of your parents AND your vows, etc.

Second photographers are included in my top two packages, but you can add a second photographer to any smaller wedding package for $60/hour.

Should we do a first look?

This depends on each couple and how you envision your day going. Want a sneak peek at your fiancée before the ceremony? Do a first look. Want the wow factor of first seeing your partner as they walk down the aisle? Don't.

First looks help ease nerves, give the couple a moment to themselves, and generally help the flow of wedding day timelines. Doing a first look allows the photographer to get most, if not all, of your "formal" photos finished ahead of time, leaving you free to enjoy cocktail hour with your guests. This way, you get to celebrate with your friends and family right after the ceremony rather than have someone chase down your extended family while they've got a cocktail shrimp in their mouth or a beer in their hand. It helps with the flow of the day, with multiple locations, and makes sure we get the photos that are important before anyone has had a few drinks.

Can I add an engagement session to my wedding package?

Yes! Please add an engagement session to your wedding package. Engagement sessions help us get comfortable with each other and see how we work together. This way, on your wedding day, we can hit the ground running and feel like old friends. Plus, you're gonna need something for your save-the-dates.

Engagement sessions are included in my top two packages, but you're welcome to add them on to any other packages as well.

What kind of retainer do I need to pay upfront?

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

Portrait sessions can be paid in advance or at the time of the session.

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.

What can I expect for a family or senior portrait session?

I love to do outdoor sessions, so if at all possible, we'll be outside. You can choose the location - for graduating seniors, it makes sense to be around something school-related, wether that's your campus, a place you like to hang out, or somewhere that's important to you. For family sessions, I have a handful of local parks I like to use, but I'm always open to a place that makes sense for you. Some families choose to have an activity for their session, like getting ice cream or making cookies together, and that can make for some great photographs!

Regardless of your session type, we'll spend about an hour together. I'll make sure to get lots of candid photographs of you laughing and enjoying your time together, but we'll also make sure to get some photos of you looking at the camera and smiling too. If you have anything specific in mind, make sure to let me know ahead of your session so we can do our best to make your vision a reality.

What do I wear for a portrait session?

Family sessions look best when outfits are coordinated, but unique - think a color family. If you're looking for a classic matching vibe, jeans and a solid color top work on pretty much everyone.

For senior sessions, I always suggest bringing your cap and gown with you for a few shots.

At the end of the day, you want to wear something that makes you feel good about yourself. If you're uncomfortable in your clothing, you're going to look uncomfortable in your photos.

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.

Do you photograph extended family sessions?

Yup. A regular family session is limited to one household - meaning whoever lives at home with you can come to the session for the included price. If you'd like to have multiple households added to your family session, I charge $100 per extra household and add 30 extra minutes. Keep in mind that this adds up quickly, but it's a great way to get the family together and create a special moment you'll all remember.

Extended family sessions are subject to an additional fees where significant travel is required.

Can we include our pets in our session?

Absolutely. I'd love to meet and photograph your pets. Just give me a heads up they're attending so I can bring a little something extra to hold their attention.

Can I add my friends to my senior or graduation session?

The more the merrier! My senior session rates are priced for individuals, but you can add friends to your session for $75 each. Senior sessions involving 4 or more people will be lengthened to an hour. This is a great way to split up the cost of a session, but keep in mind that each person will receive less individual photos due to time constraints and the addition of more group shots. Adding friends to your session does not essentially mean we're scheduling four mini-sessions, but that we're scheduling one group session with individual portraits of each included in your gallery.

Should I tip?

If you want to, you absolutely can. 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.
