How long have you been doing photography?
I have always enjoyed taking photos of family and friends from an early age. I started shooting weddings in 2014. I enjoy getting to know couples and capture their days. Each wedding is unique and I love being able to capture their moments, through photos that they can look back on for a lifetime!
What describes your style?
My style tends to be described as: classic, natural, and leans to the light and airy than a darker, moody style.
How are you different from other photographers?
I get to know my couples on a personal level, from the initial consultation (whether it be via Skype, in person), engagement session and throughout their wedding day. Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make when planing your wedding. You want to make sure it is someone you connect with, they will be by your side most of your wedding day.
What areas do you shoot in?
I am based out of Palm Coast, Florida but service all of Florida including: Jacksonville, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa and South Florida. I also travel to North and South Carolina frequently as we just moved back home to Florida but have friends and family in that area. Travel fees may apply.
How much are your packages?
Our wedding packages start at $1,000 for 4 hours of coverage, This includes 2 photographers and the edited photos on a client gallery link for you to be able to share with family and friends.
Why are there limits on different packages?
Every wedding day timeline is different. In order to provide proper coverage, we set up different packages that you are able to choose from. Packages have post processing factored into the packages as well. A wedding that has 4 hours of coverage will not take as many hours to process, compared to a wedding that has 8 hours of coverage.
How much time do you recommend?
Each wedding is different, depending on the type of photos you want to be covered. Some brides want getting ready photos and lots of reception photos, so their packages would have more hours than a couple who wants to focus on ceremony and family/bridal photos
8 hours-This is usually enough time to capture your day. It includes getting ready shots, details, the ceremony, family & bridals, fun pictures of the wedding party, first dances, toasts, cake cutting, bouquet toss and garter throw and reception. I have sample timelines to share with you, to help make a choice for coverage.
What happens if we go over the hours of coverage in our contract?
Sometimes things happens, and the couple wants us to stay an extra hour or so and extra fees will apply. Additional information is provided in the initial consultation and when the contract is signed for your reference.
How can we arrange for a consultation?
We can set up to meet in person, email, phone or Skype/Chat.
How do I book you for our wedding?
We will set up a consultation and get to know one another. We will go over your wedding day and the timeline to know which package best fits your needs. $300 is due when signing the contract. The balance is due 10 days before the wedding. Payment plans are available as well.
Do packages include tax?
No, all packages are subject to sales tax for your wedding package.
Do packages include a 2nd shooter?
Any packages 4 hours or over include a 2nd shooter. This will allow us to help capture more perspectives and more images for you.
Do you stay during the entire reception?
This would depend on the coverage/package that you selected. Most of the time, we are at the reception for the first 2-3 hours to capture key moments (first dance, toast, garter toss/bouquet toss, and cake cutting). Before coverage ends, I will ask you if there is anything you else you want photographed before we leave.
Do you Photoshop images?
We make adjustments to lighting or color to make your images look consistent and natural. Sometimes we will fix blemishes, acne, etc. Additional extensive editing is per photo.
How many images can I expect from my wedding?
It varies on the package you selected for your wedding day. Other factors are: size of bridal party, family groupings, amount of hours of coverage etc. An average wedding with all of the key elements included have between 300-500 images.
How long does it take to receive my photos?
I will provide you with a sneak peek within 48 hours. It takes about 4-6 weeks for the full gallery to be delivered.
Do you provide Raw or unedited photos?
My camera shoots in RAW and JPEG. I convert Raw into JPEG for the best quality. We do not release any RAW images for any reason.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, I carry insurance for my protection, as well as my client's protection.

Tracy is an incredible photographer and such a sweet, down to earth person! From the minute we first met, I knew Tracy would be the perfect person to photograph our engagement and wedding photos. She gets to know her clients and treats them like family rather then just clients!
I received so many compliments on how professional Tracy and her assistants were throughout the wedding. They paid attention to every little detail.
The pictures of both my engagement and wedding are phenomenal! Again, we have received so many compliments on how beautiful the photos are. I am looking forward to putting together my wedding album and being able to show it off to family and friends.
Thank you Tracy for capturing our special day!

No words can express how happy we are with Tracy Townsend Photography. She captured every moment of my daughters wedding. She captured every moment as well as candid pictures of our guests. We had special requests as well as our guests requests and Tracy didn't take just one picture but several so we/they could choose our favorite! Tracy has also taken the milestone pictures of my granddaughter and captured her personality perfectly! We will use Tracy Townsend for all of our special occasions! Thank you Tracy!
