FAQ: Elopement Edition / Elopement Photographer Colorado

What does a typical ELOPEMENT look like?

First off, their is no “typical” elopement. You tailor it entirely you to you. If you want to get married in an urban environment, then celebrate by visiting some amazing craft breweries, do that. If you want to get away to a remote mountain location, do that.
Regardless of what you choose, I will document it all with incredible images for you to cherish and pass on to future generations.

How do we decide on a location?

I can help you a little with this, but it’s ultimately up to you. Where was your first date? Is there somewhere that is important in the story of you? What do you love to do together?

What is documentary and lifestyle photography, exactly?

To put it simply, documentary and lifestyle photography isn’t about cute poses and great backdrops, although it still uses some amazing locations. It’s about capturing every day life, real emotion, real moments.
I’ve explained it more fully through these blog posts.

Will you ‘Photoshop’ the pictures to make us look better?

Oooof. Nope. That’s a hard no. Photoshop is something that I just don’t do. I will do minor edits (i.e. acne removal), but it is the policy of Laura Glen Photography not to alter the appearances of my clients.

When will we get our pictures back?

I want to ensure I provide you with my best work, so your full gallery will be delivered to you in 5-7 weeks. At that time you may purchase prints and products through my professional lab and download your images.

Can we just have the RAW files and edit them ourselves?

This is another thing that is a hard no. Here’s why.
