ABOUT LUXE IMAGES
LUXE Images was created by photographers who have made deep impacts with photography within Oklahoma and across the country.
LUXE Images has supplied photography for countless weddings across the state and our photographers have combined together to form the best team possible to photograph the most important day of people’s lives. Our photographers have worked for companies and organizations such as ESPN, the Oklahoma City Thunder, Feed the Children, United Way, the OKC Dodgers, Bloomberg News, Miss Oklahoma, UPI, and Sports Illustrated. LUXE works with brides to form the best day of shooting for their big day, as well as providing bridal portraits, engagement photos and more. Through having work appear in many national publications, fashion magazines and even the cover of Sports Illustrated, our photographers know not only how to capture the absolute perfect image, but do so regularly as a part of their job; their passion.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
" LUXE Images helped make my day memorable. A year later, I still have the album on my coffee table and EVERYONE loves to look through the album of our love. From the engagement photos to bridal portraits to our wedding day, LUXE helped plan each and every detail to make sure that we were prepared and ready to go. I recommend LUXE to all of my friends and would highly encourage any one else to book with LUXE. "

"Jam Events made my wedding planning very easy! They are the ultimate "one stop shop"!! They provided hot and juicy steaks, salmon, potatoes, green beans, and even a children's menu of mac&cheese and chicken fingers! The catering staff was excellent and very polished! The bar staff was quick to serve very chilled beverages and Jam Events even provided the tall mahogany bar! I also had many guest comment on my "vintage style" photobooth that was equipped with a large sofa, vintage lamp, and props including top hats and parasols! Very classy which fit perfectly in my venue, Hall of Mirrors. They also provided all my hot pink, lace and ivory linens. Not only did I repeatedly hear from my guest how beautifully done my wedding was but how smoothly everything went. JP and staff exceeded this Bride's expectations and of course went above and beyond. All of my videography and photography was done by Jam Events as well. Thank you Jam Events for truly bringing my dream wedding to life!!”

Q: Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A: No, we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.
Q: Does your studio do headshots, individual portraits, family portraits, newborn shoots, commercial photography, or other types of photography?
A: Yes, we have experience in many fields of photography. Feel free to contact us.
Q: Do you shoot Quinceaneras, Debutants, Bah Mitzvahs, or Corporate Events?
A: Yes. These are all considered ‘event photography.’ We have chosen to focus and excel at wedding and event photography, and we would love to cover your celebration.
Q: My venue is very dark. How does your studio handle these situations and can I see samples?
A: We have shot in the darkest of dark chapels and reception halls so no need to worry! If the situation allows, we will set up additional lighting to ensure we get focused pictures. Some chapels do not allow for flash photography; and for that reason, we shoot on camera’s with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures.
Q: Is there a style or quality difference among the photographers?
A: No. We take every measure to ensure consistent style and quality among our photographers. We have developed the unique style you see in our work over the years. Each shoot is reviewed and to ensure our quality and style are consistent. All mistakes, no matter how minor, are scrutinized by the team. We guarantee that the quality and style of photography you receive will be consistent. However, we do tailor our shooting style and techniques to our client requests. For example, some clients may prefer a light and airy look while others may prefer dramatic lighting and shadows.
Q: Do you touch up all the images in our image download?
A: Yes we do. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Many photographers will not post produce any images, or will only post produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography flaws.
Q: What happens if we go over the contracted amount of time?
A: We understand that not everything goes as planned during a wedding. We never pack up before the contracted time, and moreover we’re not leaving on the dot when the contracted time is up. Instead, we will ask you at the end of your contracted time whether or not you would like to extend. If you would like us to stay, we will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 30-minute increment.
Q: Why do we need to charge for additional coverage?
A: We’ve dedicated the entire day to your wedding, so we won’t be racing off to catch other plans that evening. However, we need to charge for additional coverage primarily because there are costs of having the team stay for additional hours. The shooters and lighting assistants all require additional compensation. Furthermore, the additional photos taken will need to be post produced which adds to our overall costs.
Q: When should we do our engagement session?
A: We encourage you to do your engagement session as soon as possible. The latest we suggest is at least ten weeks prior to the wedding date due to the time necessary to post produce each image (4 weeks) and complete your product order(s) (4 weeks).
Q: How many images do you typically deliver from and engagement session? From a wedding?
A: We typically deliver anywhere from 50-100 images per 3-hour engagement shoot and for a wedding, we typically deliver 100 images per hour. Keep in mind these numbers may increase or decrease depending on the flow of the day and the number of events/activities needing to be captured.
Q: How many pages and images do we get in our wedding day album?
A: Our signature LUXE album contains 20 pages and 65+/- images. If you’d like to add more pages and images, each additional page can be added at additional cost and includes the design time/revisions.
Q: Do you back up our images? How can we ensure that our images won’t be lost?
A: We have never lost an image from a wedding due to the following backup workflow for each our events:
During the shoot, we back up on an External Hard Drive after each major event throughout the day. This leaves one copy on the CF cards and creates one copy on the External Hard Drive. After the shoot, we back up the CF card to a local server set up in a RAID 1 configuration. Once the images are completed, we upload the images to an offsite location and burn another copy for our archives. At any given point, there are two copies of the files.
Q: Do you have liability insurance?
A: Yes. Many venues require the photographer to have Liability Insurance. So before hiring Uncle Jimmy, make sure he’s covered.
