General FAQ

What is your cancellation and refund policy?

If you decide to cancel your session or wedding, your initial payment (reservation fee) will not be refunded. However, any other payments you made will be returned to you (the remaining 75%).

Are there benefits when referring you?

Well of course there are benefits! You can earn discounts, special prints, gift cards, or a free photo shoot!

The reason Gabriel Dupon Photography exists is because of people like you! In return I want to show my appreciation of you by providing benefits when you refer to people in need of excellent photos!

Are you a natural light photographer?

I love taking pictures with natural light when it's available! However, when it's not, I will create my own light by using flashes, continuous lights, and other lighting methods.

Please note that I will never use any flashes during a wedding ceremony.

Should I hire you as my photographer?

That is totally up to you, but unlike many other photographers, I have a unique artistic philosophy that is different compared to a lot of other imaging creatives. I promise to not just take high quality photos, but capture the authentic, timeless, and meaningful images of what you love in a clean, organic, and fresh style!

What if you have an equipment failure?

I take serious measures to make sure equipment failure never happens. However, if it ever does happen, I am prepared! Please read my

When will my photos be delivered?

Usually photos are delivered within two weeks after your wedding or photo shoot concludes. During this time, all photos are carefully inspected, edited, retouched, and uploaded in a high resolution format to an online gallery, then sent to you with access. Prints ordered through the online gallery can take about a week depending on the shipping method. If an album or book comes with your package, please allow four to six weeks for the designing, construction, and shipping process. Read the "delivery of photos" page in "service details" to learn more.

How many photos will I receive?

Usually, you will receive 50 photos each hour depending on your wedding or photo shoot. You may receive less if you have any special requests that take extra time. I know that quantity is important, but I value quality photos and great experiences with you above all else! Read the "photography coverage" page in "service details" to learn more.

What is most rewarding to you?

Being able to inspire clients with my best possible effort that encourages them to embrace how beautiful and amazing they are! Read more on my "about Gabriel" page and my "artistic philosophy" page.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Definitely! As with any professional service, a legal agreement is important to protect both parties from any liabilities. An agreement also includes a model release to provide Gabriel Dupon Photography LLC the option to market with these photos as well. As a bonus, I provide you a free printing and sharing release!

I am pretty strict with the contract, but if this makes you uncomfortable, contact me and I will go over everything with you.

What equipment do you use?

I use a wide range of professional full frame cameras and superb lenses from Nikon to capture your precious moments. Of course the talent does not come from the equipment that is used, but I want to make sure I capture the best possible image for you!

What if I lose my pictures?

If you lose or somehow delete your pictures after your wedding or photo shoot, don't worry! Contact me and you will receive all of your original pictures back! I take great responsibility in my data system for permanently keeping all photographs I capture. I do this by constantly backing them up and keeping them in secure hard drives.

Please read the "image archive backup" page in "service details"to learn more!

Are my pictures edited?

Heck yeah! All of your pictures are professionally edited and retouched! This includes selection of the best pictures, color corrections, exposure adjustments, cropping, etc. Please read my "image editing" page in "service details" to learn more!

How do I get prints?

You can order prints through the online store when your photos are delivered. If your package comes with print credits, you can redeem them at checkout.

Of course you are not obligated to order prints from me. You're allowed to order prints from wherever you would like! However, it is recommended to order prints and albums through me as I design everything to perfection and use some of the best professional printing labs in the country to ensure your satisfaction!

What is your style?

My visual photography style is described as clean, organic, and fresh! Read more on "my style" page in "service details" to learn more.

Additionally, I have an artistic philosophy, which is what I believe photos should make you feel. I describe this as authentic, meaningful, and timeless. Read more on my "artistic philosophy" page in "service details" to learn more.

Wedding Specific FAQ

What if you become unable to photograph my wedding?

If you have already booked me and I somehow become ill or severely hurt that renders me impossible to photograph your wedding, I will find a replacement for you. The replacement will be of same or a higher skilled photographer than me. If I am unable to find a replacement or you don't like the replacement that I find, then I will give you a 100% refund.

Do you only photograph outdoor weddings?

You need me to photograph your indoor wedding? I can do that! Just keep in mind that my speciality and experience is specifically for outdoor weddings.

However, If your wedding is in space or on a different planet... Maybe Mars? That might be a stretch too far!

Will you keep my wedding date reservation?

YES, YES, AND A THOUSAND TIMES YES!!! Once you and I sign the contract and the initial payment (aka- reservation fee) is paid, your date/time is rock solid and I cannot move it (unless you need me to because you changed your event date/time for some reason).

How do I know if you're available?

Please fill out the wedding contact form on the contact page and I will respond to you on a business day (Monday-Friday) as soon as possible. Once I respond, you will be provided with more details about availability and booking information.

Please note that I have a limited number of weddings each year as I value quality and good client experiences above all else!

How much are wedding packages?

All pricing for wedding packages and add-ons can be found on the "Investment" page.

Will you travel to my wedding?

Absolutely! I am available as a destination wedding photographer and I can travel anywhere in the United States plus some countries internationally. I do require that you reimburse me for my travel expenses and pay a destination fee.

However, any travel within the Northern Colorado area (Wellington, Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, Buckeye, Carr, Nunn, Norfolk, Laporte, Bellvue, Timnath, and Severance) or the Cheyenne Wyoming area will include no travel fee for your wedding. Any area not too far away from those areas have minimal expenses for my traveling.

Read my "areas served" page in "service details" to learn more.

Do you have a second shooter?

I do not use a second shooter when photographing weddings. To learn more of why I don't have a second shooter, read my independent photographer page under "service details", which describes in detail why I find it unnecessary.

Will you dance at my wedding?

I may groove a little bit when taking some pictures, but you're paying me to do a job, so the answer is no. My job as a professional is to take pictures. Lots and lots of high quality pictures. After all, this is what you're paying me to do! It would be very unprofessional if I wasn't doing my job.

Will you drink at my wedding?

That is a definite no no no. I will never consume any alcohol of any type and I try to stay away from beverages with sugars. I just stick with water or unsweetened coconut water because I need to stay hydrated, professional, and focus on capturing the best images for you!

What should I tell my guests?

If you would like to get the best pictures at your wedding, I would suggest that you tell your guests (or put up an unplugged sign) at your ceremony for guests to limit taking pictures with their smart phones or cameras.

You don't want an uncle bob moment where someone stands up right in front of me as I'm taking the picture of your ceremonial Kiss! This is just a suggestion and I will always be able to work around and be gracious to all of your wedding guests.

Do you provide discounts?

Because I feel that I already provide an affordable wedding photography service, I do not provide any discounts. However, I do provide discounts and benefits to clients that refer me!

Portrait Specific FAQ

What portrait sessions do you offer?

I usually only do weddings, but I sometimes do portrait sessions according to the following:

Engagements - Offered exclusively to wedding clients ONLY.

Seniors - Depends on the time of year with limited availability.

Lifestyle - Depends on the time of year with limited availability

Adventure portrait sessions - Contact me for more details.

Please contact me for more information if you're interested in a portrait session!

Do you travel to portrait sessions?

Unlike my wedding photography service, I am not available for long distance travel to do portrait sessions.

I usually like to keep my portrait sessions within the Northern Colorado area (Wellington, Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, Buckeye, Carr, Nunn, Norfolk, Laporte, Bellvue, Timnath, and Severance) or Cheyenne Wyoming.

If you're interested in doing a portrait session and are not in my service area, I do require you to travel to the Northern Colorado or the Cheyenne Wyoming area.

How much are portrait sessions?

Please contact me for availability and to receive a quote. Please note that I am very limited with my portrait session availability (especially during the summer).

Do I need to practice posing?

That isn't necessary. My job as a photographer is to guide and direct you for a perfect pose! There is no need for practice or training. The only thing you need to practice is saying to yourself "I am beautiful, I am amazing, I will be awesome!". Don't worry, you totally got this!

Will you hold my date/time?

Once you and I sign the contract and the initial payment (aka, reservation fee) is paid, your date/time is rock solid and I cannot move it (unless you need me to because of weather or a personal emergency).

Do you have a question?

Vix ut utinam feugait. Eu scribentur liberavisse nec. Dico fugit nostro cu pri, no putent nemore mel, ius at minim molestiae
