Photography is a HUGE decision, and you probably have A Ton of questions.

So we've have compiled a list of questions that we get asked a lot. If you don’t find your answer here, please feel free to contact our studio. 


There are so many photographers out there. Why should we pick you?

The truth is that there are probably only a handful of photographers that will be a great fit for you.  Things such as personality, photographic style, budget, and experience will all matter to you. So here it is: We are honest. We are great with your friends and family. We are a blast to be around. We are great at what we do. We are not the cheapest nor are we the most expensive. But, there is a reason they say, “You get what you pay for.” Even if we’re not the best fit for you, feel free to contact and ask for advice; we’ve love to get you in contact with some of our great photographer friends!

Can I see a full wedding?

Absolutely!  We actually encourage it. You can check out our featured weddings to see a more curated collection of our wedding photos or you can e-mail us at and we'd love to show you some full wedding galleries. 

How can I book Hi Volt Studios for my wedding?

Please use the “Inquire” page in the menu at the top left of this website to fill out our short form. We will then tell you if we're available for your wedding date and send you additional information on our wedding packages and pricing. Please note that each year we receive several hundred inquiries, and we can only hold these dates with a signed contract and retainer. 

How far in advance should I book you?

You should book your photographer as soon as you know you’ve found the one! In New Orleans the most coveted Saturdays book up 12-18 months in advance!

How does Hi Volt Studios define its style?

The word photojournalistic gets tossed around a lot, but what we live for is those authentic real moments. We try to be as non-obtrusive as possible for most of the wedding day to allow you to live your special day! We do combine those moments with some of our creative couples and bridal portraits that will create a full wedding gallery that is not only authentic, but also beautiful.


Do you travel for weddings? 

Absolutely!  All that is required is airfare and lodging in addition to a package selection. 

How many photos will we get and how long does it take?

We don’t have a set number and it all really depends on the size, length and amount of details of your wedding. Expect anywhere from 500-700 for the average 8 hour wedding. We aim to have your photos in an online gallery ready for download in 4-6 weeks. 

Do I get the copyright for the pictures?

As the creator of the photos we do retain copyright but like most photographers we grant a copyright release which allows you to print at any lab of your choosing and share your photos as much as you want.  

Do I get the RAW files?

Nope. Part of hiring Hi Volt Studios is our curation and editing of your wedding day photos. Documenting the day is only part of what a professional photographer does.  It takes a lot experience in post production to get to just the right look that we intended when we captured the image, not to mention the special software. What you will get is high resolution images of a finished product.

*If you are in a situation where you MUST have the RAW files, we can certainly come up with a custom agreement; Do note that it will be beyond the scope of our regular packages and will come at a significant cost.
