Wedding Photography FAQ

How far in advance should I book a photographer for my wedding?

Most couples reserve their wedding photographers one year in advance. However, some have less time to plan, so feel free to contact us to see if we are available on your date.


What's required to reserve my date?

To officially book us, you'll sign our online contract and pay a non-refundable retainer fee. The contact and retainer fee are required to reserve your wedding date.


Can I make payments?

Yes! We require a $1000 retainer (cash or check) and a signed contract to save your date. You can make monthly payments but the balance is due 30 days before your wedding day.


Can I pay with a credit card?

Other than the retainer - the rest can go on your card if you need to. Get those miles!


Who do I make checks out to and where should I send them?

Gilmore Studios, 2390 Redlands Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660


We have a break between the ceremony and reception. Can we break up the wedding hours?

Our package includes consecutive hours of coverage. Additional hours can be added to your package for $500 per hour.

Do I get to keep the digital files after the wedding?

Yes. All of our wedding packages include digital negatives from the wedding day.


I saw one of your weddings on YouTube, do you guys also do a video?

We make slideshow videos for our couples that include short video clips throughout. We call these photo/video hybrids. We are not videographers, but we use our cameras to record short video clips to help tell the story of the wedding. This is included with every wedding package. We do not film continuously- if you want a wedding video with audio of the ceremony and toasts, we recommend hiring a videographer. We have a few we work with closely and would be happy to refer you.


Do you mind if our family members take photos at the wedding?

Of course not, we will never tell your family to put the cameras away. However, we DO recommend having a photo-free ceremony to keep your important ceremony images free of phones and iPads covering the heads and faces of the perfect moment.


Do you guys have a photo booth?

We don’t personally have a photobooth but we work with a lot of great companies and are happy to refer you.
