If after reading this and the answer is "YES, I want IMAGES by Alexander to photograph my wedding!", please contact us to start the booking process now!
Do you travel?
YES! I’m based on the island of Exuma, but I’ll go wherever you need me. I’ve photographed weddings on Abaco, Eleuthera, and Nassau, in addition to Exuma and the Exuma Cays. There is an additional fee when booking a wedding outside of mainland Exuma.
Are there any special requirements to marry in the Bahamas?
There are a few, but not many Check out our link here to get all the info you need.
Do you offer packages and what’s included?
I do have several packages for you to choose from. All packages include the following:
• Coverage by Nelson Alexander
• Digital Negatives – all of your wedding photos on a custom USB flash drive
• 90 day access to your online gallery so you can view, share, and order photos
• Custom coffee table-style album
If my packages aren't quite what you are looking for, I will work with you to create a custom photography package that fits both your photography needs and your budget! Please contact me for more information, so we can work together to create a package that is perfect for you!
Do you accept credit cards or payment plans?
Yes, I accept credit cards. For your convenience and privacy, I use PayPal to process credit card payments. A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking a wedding. If you would like to pay your remaining balance in installments, please let me know and a payment plan can be arranged.
Do we need to meet in person before the wedding?
While I would love to meet every bride and groom before a wedding, it’s not always possible, especially destination wedding couples. When possible, I encourage it, but it’s not a requirement to work with me. If you are unable to meet in person, a phone call or even a video chat online would be great. I have Skype, gmail/gtalk, or if you prefer a different instant-messaging system – just ask me to chat and I will be there!
Who will photograph my wedding?
It’s always me. Some photographers hire out weddings to other contract/associate photographers. I am not one of them. When you book me, you will have me as your photographer.
What is your photography style?
The best way to experience by photography style is to view my online gallery. I’m a mix of a few different styles. I like to capture those candid sweet moments between bride and groom, the fun shots with your bridal party and wedding guests, and the traditional posed photos that every bride wants. No matter how you describe my style, I make sure I cover you wedding from start to finish!
Do you provide digital images with copyright?
Yes! All of your images will be given to you on a custom thumb drive. I provide a “personal use” license with your high-resolution digital images so that you may share or print at your leisure. However, copyright and ownership of the photos remains with me, as per international copyright law.
How long until I see my wedding photos?
On average, it’s about 4-6 weeks before the photos are available online for viewing, and may be quicker depending on the volume of weddings being photographed at the time. But I know how anxious you will be to see your wedding photos, so I do post sneak previews of some of the photos in the immediate days following the wedding.
Can I submit my photos to wedding websites to be featured?
Yes, and I encourage it. Why not show off one of the best days of your life? Please be sure to contact me when submitting so that I can make sure that IMAGES by Alexander (Bahamas) is given full credit as your photographer. Note that some sites like Style Me Pretty or The Knot requires that your submission be an exclusive - which means you cannot submit your wedding to more than one site.
What is your feeling about guests and personal cameras and camera phones at weddings?
Your wedding day is exciting for not only the bride and groom, but for the family and friends that are attending it. We live in a digital age in which anyone and everyone wants to capture their memories as quickly as they happen. I have no problem with cameras and camera phones at weddings; however, I would like it to be made clear to guests that you have hired me for my services. I want to make sure I am able to take clear shots when necessary without having to move guests out of pictures. These are your memories, and I want them to be everything you dreamed of.
Are you a member of any associations?
Yes. I am a member of the Bahamas Bridal Association. All members are endorsed by the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.
I have a few more questions to ask, what should I do?
No worries, I will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Contact me to set up a complimentary consultation and we can go over the details.
