THE JOURNAL

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

I am based in Tiny, Ontario and serve Midland, Barrie & Beyond

 

DO YOU HAVE A TRAVEL FEE?

My collections include 90 kilometres of travel (from my address, to the location, back to my address). Any mileage over will be subject to a $0.50/km charge.

 

WHAT TYPE OF WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT?

While I’m open to shooting all types of weddings; with my style of work I specialize in weddings set in an outdoor setting at a Garden or Park, Vineyard/Winery, Farms etc.

 

CAN I BOOK ONLY AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

Because I focus on giving my couples an overall wedding experience from start to finish, I don’t offer these sessions outside of wedding collections. The reason being is that it’s much more valuable to have these sessions done with your wedding photographer since it will benefit the quality of your wedding photos.

 

DO YOU SHOOT ELOPEMENT OR VOW RENEWALS?

If you’re eloping or celebrating a small vow renewal, I would be happy to create a small collection for you.

 

DO YOU TAKE EVERY WEDDING THAT COMES YOUR WAY?

No. The reason being is that in order to give you the best wedding photography experience possible, I need to ensure that we are a good fit for each other and that we connect on a personal level. I understand that my style or approach may not fit the needs of every Bride and Groom, and that’s okay! It’s important that my shooting style compliments your wedding look! If I believe we aren’t a good fit, I would be happy to help find you a photographer that is!

 

DO YOU SHOOT DESTINATION WEDDINGS?

Absolutely! I LOVE to travel! Please e-Mail me for destination collections.

 

DO WE GET ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?

All of the images that I deliver are hand selected and are the best of the BEST. I promise you don’t want every single photo that I take because there will be photos where people’s eyes are closed, blinking, sneezing, anything out of focus, duplicates of the same exact photo, testing the lighting, etc. With that said, I will never deprive anyone of a beautiful photo or restrict the amount of images that I deliver based on a certain amount.

 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE AND LIABILITY?

YES and I would be happy to provide your wedding venue with a copy of my insurance!

 

DO YOU EDIT EVERY IMAGE THAT YOU DELIVER?

Yes! Every image that I deliver to you is custom edited with my editing style regardless of the amount of images!

 

DO YOU DELIVER ANY BLACK & WHITE IMAGES?

I will usually duplicate a handful of images into black and white. However sometimes if your church ceremony has very harsh lighting or your DJ or venue is using lots of laser lights/flashing strobes or spot lights, sometimes I will deliver certain images in black and white in lieu of those situations.

WHO HOLDS THE COPYRIGHT TO MY IMAGES?

You will be granted full-printing rights to your images with your online gallery and you can print them anywhere, as many times as you’d wish, and share your images with whoever you would like. The full copyright does remain with me, which means you CANNOT submit your images for publication to sell them for advertisement/profit (magazine, book, wedding blog, etc.) or re-edit them without my permission and knowledge.

 

WHAT IF MY LOCATION REQUIRES A PHOTO PERMIT OR FEE?

Clients are held solely responsible for any entrance access fees or permits at any of their locations unless otherwise arranged with Michaila Chodur Photography. It is the client’s responsibility to make sure all fees and permits are taken care of prior to their scheduled session.
