When hiring your wedding photographer, it’s so important to look for someone who is passionate about what they do. Rachel Dornquast of Distinction Studio has the passion, experience, and vision to capture your dream wedding (and more!) Rachel is sharing more about her packages, style, and exactly what you should look for when hiring a wedding photographer!
What is something that makes your photography unique?
Unique photography doesn’t just start and end with the photograph… it goes beyond that! Distinction Studio strives to go above and beyond by getting to know the couple. I give clients a personalized experience where we are able to have a good time and laugh together… I mean the best photographs come when people are comfortable together and having fun! I whole heartedly LOVE what I do and I am blessed to be able to celebrate a couple’s most important day with them! I have the honor of creating the images that will stay with them forever and I wouldn’t have it any other way! When you have Distinction Studio photograph your wedding you get wonderful photographs you will be proud to share!
What is included in your packages? What is your price range?
By developing a friendship and getting to know each other, we will capture the moments that make YOUR special day unforgettable. We deliver high-quality photography at an affordable price, and look forward to being a part of your wedding day!
No wedding is the same so why should your photography package be the same? Distinction Studio is proud to create individualized packages for each wedding so you get exactly what you want! All weddings include a minimum of the following…
- Photographs give to you (with print release)
- Online password protected viewing/sharing/ordering gallery
- In person and/or phone meetings to discuss details
- Individualized timeline/schedule for your wedding day that we create together
Now if that’s not enough, don’t worry! Distinction Studio offers SO much more for example…
- Engagement session(s)
- Prints of all shapes and size on different mediums/materials
- Custom wall art
- So much more!
Being that each wedding is unique Distinction Studio strives to have a place for every budget so don’t let price be the reason to not contact us! That being said the average wedding package ranges between $2,000-$3,500. Are you a Bride on a budget? Not a problem… contact us and ask about budget friendly packages! We look forward to hearing from you!!!
How would you describe your style?
I would say the photography style is more or less all-inclusive… Think fun-loving, photojournalistic, and tastefully modern photographs that give you a timeless look you are sure to love!
My own personal style is basically… work hard and play hard. I am extremely blessed to have my business and being a photographer is absolutely, hands down, a dream come true! I work hard to create photographs you are proud to share with friends and family; all along the way having a great time!
What should brides and grooms look for in their photographer?
Make sure your photographer has knowledge about photography and even more specifically wedding photography. Photographing a wedding is a whole new world. Weddings are a one time deal and you can’t re-do certain things, your photographer should be able to capture those special moments that only happen once. Your photographer should know how to manage a “hiccup” on the wedding day and be confident in their ability to handle any situation. Make sure your photographer knows how to plan out your wedding timeline, the important moments to capture, and the typical flow of a wedding. I always want my couples to feel confident in having Distinction Studio as their wedding photographer; getting great photos starts with being confident in your photographer!
Make sure you and your wedding photographer are compatible. When choosing your wedding photographer, make sure you understand each other and get along. Trusting your photographer is also highly important. Your wedding photographer is someone who is going to be with you almost all day on your wedding day, it is best to have someone who you will enjoy being with and will make your wedding day picture perfect! I strive to get to know my couples so by the time your wedding comes we are already friends… that way on your wedding day we can have a great time and create wonderful photographs together!
Any tips or advice for wedding planning?
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Planning a wedding is fun but can also be stressful! At Distinction Studio I want to help make it as fun and stress-free as possible… I am in the wedding industry; I have a lot of experience and know a lot of various vendors… need advice or help… don’t be afraid to ask for it! Also don’t be afraid to ask friends and family for help; typically your friends and family want to help, all you have to do is ASK!
Remember why you are planning this big, special day! This day is to celebrate the marriage of you and the love of your life! When everything seems to be out of control and overwhelming, take a step back… take a deep breath and relax. In the end, you will be married to the person of your dreams! Cheers!!!
