Do you have reviews that we can read? Yes! Check out WeddingWire, The Knot, and the Mike Buscher Photography facebook page. I can also put you in direct contact with previous clients upon request.
Can we customize a package? Yes. Just tell us what you want and we will see what we can do.
How long have you been shooting weddings? Since 2005. We do from 25-35 weddings every year.
Are your prices flexible? In non-peak months we can sometimes be flexible depending on the exact date and location. It never hurts to ask!
Can you suggest vendors for video, photo booth, music, etc? Yes. Some are on my Links page but if you don’t see what you need, just ask.
Will you do a site visit at my venue prior to the wedding day? Yes, even if we have been there many times.
What will you wear to my wedding? Depends on the venue but typically we wear black and blend with the guests as much as possible.
Will there be two photographers at our wedding? The choice is yours. We offer and recommend two photographers at every wedding.
Do you bring back-up gear and do you have insurance? We carry multiple cameras, lenses, and flashes. We are fully insured.
Do you book more than one wedding for the same day? No photographer will shoot more than one wedding on the same day. This allows us to be flexible if your schedule changes at the last minute.
Can we make special requests for photos? Of course. Let’s discuss! We don’t rely on lists (except for group formals) but we always want you to tell us if there is something special that you want. Maybe a special kind of portrait? Or a subtle detail that we otherwise might miss? Please do let us know.
Can you help me with my list of group formals? Yes, and we will give you guidance to make sure there is enough time scheduled to complete all of the group photos you desire.
How long are you present on a typical wedding day, and will you stay till the very end of the reception? Most couples book us for eight hours and this is generally enough time to stay till the end of the reception. We want to stay until the end of the reception if possible. We suggest starting your photographer at least two hours before the ceremony (maybe longer if you’re doing a “first look”). If your ceremony and reception are in the same location and you don’t want coverage of the prep (hair and make-up, etc) it is possible that with 6-7 hours we can still make it to the end of the reception.
How long will it take to see the photos after the wedding? The vast majority of our couples receive a link to their gallery within seven (7) days of their wedding. All of our editing is done in-house (we don’t outsource the editing like many companies do) and every single photo you get will have gone through a post-production process to make it look as great as it can look.
Do we get copyrights of the photos? Yes, absolutely. While we do offer you the option of purchasing prints from us (through your gallery) you are also free to download the files and make prints elsewhere. It is important for you to understand that we are partnered with a very high-quality print lab and we know your prints will look great if you opt to use them. That said, we also don’t want to force you to buy prints from us if you’d rather save money and go elsewhere. However please note that we can not guarantee the quality of your prints if you have them produced elsewhere.
What if we don’t include an album in our contract but decide to add one after we see our photos? People do this all the time. You can add an album at any time, even after you’ve been married for years! For more info on albums please click here.
What do you like most about shooting weddings? We love telling stories with photos and we love meeting new people.
