We want to make certain we empower our clients to make a informed decision when choosing a professional photographer for their special day. Below are the questions we are often asked about. Should you have any specific questions not answered in this FAQ page, please contact us via email or click here.
How do I go about choosing a photographer?
At Costello Photography we understand if you are hiring a professional photographer that you’re doing so for a very special event. Due to the increasing costs of everything, more and more people are electing to use non-professionals for everyday events and hire a photographer only for weddings, 50th anniversaries or other life-milestone events. Hiring a photographer is a very personal choice and you should interview potential photographers as well as review their work before you hire one.
How do I know I am getting the best work?

How soon do we have to book a reservation?
Like many other photographers, dates do tend to fill up fast, especially during wedding season. You are encouraged to book as soon as you are comfortable and you find the option you are searching for in a photography package
Can others at my event take photos while you’re working?
Yes, although we do ask that friends and family avoid taking excessive shots during formal sessions that could delay other events.
Do you provide a CD of photographs from digital sessions?
Yes, we provide you with a CD with all the photographs that are taken with digital equipment if that is the package you elect to purchase. We do maintain a file of high resolution photographs in the event you elect to have additional pictures printed by us.
Do you send more than one person to a photography session?
Yes. There will be 2 photographers at your event. This allows us to gather even more photographs of your special event and allows you a greater selection of candid photos of your special day.
What about equipment malfunctions?
We make certain that before our photographer shows up at your event that they have working equipment and equipment is fully tested. All of our photographers also carry backup equipment in the event of any type of a malfunction so that you never have to worry about not getting your photos due to equipment malfunctions.
Can I tell you if I’m looking for specific poses?
Yes, of course. This is your special event and we will make every possible attempt to satisfy your request for special poses.
