Frequently Asked Questions

What if we don’t know what to do in front of the camera?

During a portrait session, I will absolutely help guide you into poses. My only expectation for you is that you come open to ideas, and are ready to have fun, laugh, and snuggle in front of my camera! While I will give you direction throughout the session, I like to let you fall into a version of the pose that is comfortable for you and keep it fun! There will also be plenty of times when I will let you do your thing, and capture your natural interactions. I may ask you to move, walk, and fake laugh- which coincidentally always results in real laughter!

What should we wear to our engagement session?

I have created a whole portrait style guide to help empower & prepare you on what to wear, what props to bring, how to choose a location and what to expect so that you will love the photos from your session!

How will you edit my pictures?

My editing style is light and bright. I also love the timeless look of black and white photographs and turn some of our standout images into black and white copies. My editing does NOT include extensive editing such as “photoshopping” you to change the color of something or alter your size or shape. If there is something specific that you would like changed in an image, it can be processed by a retoucher for an additional fee.

Can we have the raw/ unedited images too?

Simply, No. After your session, I spend time going through the pictures and sorting them. At this time, I sort out the pictures that have eyes closed, misfires, pictures where people walked in front of the camera, and pictures that for whatever reason do not meet my very high standards or my photographic style. These files are discarded. While I will never hold good pictures hostage from you, my job is to curate the most beautiful way to tell your story. I also spend time editing to make my pictures look a certain way. Just as I hate leaving the house without makeup, I will not release my images without a little editing.

How will I receive my images? Can I have my pictures on a usb?

Your images will be delivered electronically via an online gallery. The gallery is password protected so any person looking to access the images must have the secured password. This is the quickest way for me to get the images to you. As soon as I finish editing I can load the images to the gallery and send you the link and password. Even if it is at 2 am! No need to wait for items to be shipped and delivered. It also allows you to share your images with guests, friends, and family. From your gallery, you can download all the images directly to your computer. You can save them to a hard drive, USB or CD on your own. However, if you would like a USB of your images made by Leigh Hayward Photography, you can purchase it a' la carte.

When will we receive our images?

Your full gallery will be available within 3 weeks from your event. Rush delivery is available for an additional charge which guarantees your images are delivered within just 3 days!

Will we get the print release to all of our photos after our wedding?

Yes, you will be granted print & social media release to allow you to post, print & love your images endlessly!

Can I print my pictures on my own?

Absolutely! However, I highly recommend ordering prints though my professional vendors, as the difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab. I’d be happy to help you with prints!

What equipment do you use?

I use all of the latest Nikon equipment. I always carry a Nikon D750, a 50mm prime lens, a 85mm prime lens, a 24-120mm lens, and a 70-300mm zoom lens, among other items. All of my cameras and lenses have a backup in the rare event that anything should happen to one of my pieces.

Are the couples on your site models?

Haha! While I am lucky enough to work with gorgeous couples, the images shown on my site and blog are of regular, paying clients.

How do we reserve our wedding date?

A 50% retainer and signed contract is required in order to secure your wedding day on the calendar. Two weeks prior to your wedding, the remainder of your balance is due.

What makes your work different from other photographer’s work?

I take all of my photos in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. My sessions are candid & fun! I’ve had over 18 years of professional photography experience and am to put my clients at ease quickly.

How many photographers will be at our wedding?

Most of my wedding collections come with one photographer, yours truly, although you can always add on a second photographer for an additional cost.

Will we be featured in a magazine or blog?

Although many of my sessions do get featured, this is not something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in colorful, uniquely designed weddings full of details!

Do you photograph elopements?

Of course! Depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, I have special rates for weekday weddings and elopements.

Do you have preferred vendors you use?

I sure do! From wedding coordinators to florists and makeup artists. I have worked with some of the best companies in the industry and would be happy to share their information with you!

We are having a destination wedding. Do you travel?

Yes! I love destination weddings and have been lucky enough to travel all over the world shooting weddings. Send me more information on your travel plans, and I will create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs.
