Frequently Asked Questions
How can you possibly do both photo and dj services?
I am naturally a multitasker in all aspects of my life. If I'm not doing three things at once, I'm bored! The responsibilities of a photographer drop off drastically after the formal photos are done. This allows me also to provide the music. While a song is playing, I can go out into the crowd and snap pictures. My camera equipment sits beside me, ready to go, right until the end of the night. I also utilize remotes to control my playlist and my lights if need be. I have done well over 200 weddings as the photographer and dj, and I am yet to have a disappointed client!
When should I book your services?
I always recommend booking ASAP. There is never any pressure, but I do not consider a date closed until I have a deposit.
How much of a deposit is required?
I always prefer about ¼ of the package value to confirm your booking. However, I am flexible with deposits to help suit your finances. All deposits are non-refundable.
When is the final payment due?
The final payment is due the day of the wedding in the form of etransfer, cash or cheque (made out to Cameron Shaver). You are welcome to pay the final balance at any time once the final contract is drawn up.
How many pictures will I get?
There is no upper or lower limit for the number of pictures that you will get. On average, depending on how many locations we use, I deliver between 800 to 1100 images. You get every great picture that I take! Defining a set limit on the pictures I deliver is silly. I never know how many photos I will take, and why would I eliminate a good picture simply because I hit an arbitrary cap?
Do you offer any print packages?
I could offer print packages, or you could do it cheaper yourself! If you don't want to be bothered, I can do the printing for you, but I am an advocate of clients doing things for themselves and saving big bucks in the process!
Are you insured?
Yes! I have plenty of insurance so that everyone is covered in any unfortunate circumstance.
How long will it take to get my pictures?
First, it depends on the time of year or how late in the season your wedding is. I average approximately 90 days for a turnaround, but I write 120 days, so you have a guaranteed time.
How much experience do you have?
I started as a professional photographer and dj in 2007, and since that time, I have been booked hundreds of times from large corporate events to small private weddings. I have encountered almost every possible venue, setup and hiccup possible, and I have experience dealing with all of them.
