General FAQ

What is your cancellation and refund policy?

If you decide to cancel your session or wedding, your initial payment (reservation fee) will not be refunded. However, any other payments you have made will be returned to you.

What if you have an equipment failure?

Dupon Photography takes serious measures to make sure equipment failure never happens. However, if it ever does happen, Dupon Photography is prepared. Please contact if you have any questions!

How many pieces of art will I receive?

Typically, you will receive an average of 50 to 70 pieces of art per hour.

What this means: you can expect to receive an average of at least 50 pieces of art each hour, but no more than 70 per hour.

Dupon Photography knows quantity is important. However, quality artwork and great experiences are more important than anything else!

Who will be capturing my event?

For all photography and cinematography shoots, I (Gabriel Dupon) will be present as the lead creator. Additional creatives such as second shooters and assistants may also be at your event depending on your package and add-ons.

I love to get to know my clients, so if you want to schedule a call to talk, contact me via email at!

What is most rewarding to you?

Being able to inspire clients by capturing their story. Photos that encourage them to embrace how beautiful and amazing they are!

Should we get event insurance?

It is not required, but it is highly recommended! Many things are outside your control, and getting event insurance is a no-brainer just in case any incidents occur.

Also, making sure your vendors are insured is smart. Dupon Photography is insured for up to $2 million aggregate (up to $1 million per occurrence).

Are you a natural light artist?

Dupon Photography loves taking pictures and videos with natural light when it's available. The look of natural light is beautiful and is prioritized when available. However, when it's not available, Dupon Photography will create light by using flashes, continuous lights, and other lighting methods.

Please note that Dupon Photography will never use any flash device during a wedding ceremony without your permission first.

Do you have backup equipment?

Dupon Photography always carries backup equipment just in case. Dupon Photography invests a lot into having backup equipment to always be ready to capture your precious moments.

Will you drink at our event?

That is a definite no. It is very unprofessional and disrespectful for vendors and venue staff to drink alcohol of any kind. Dupon Photography will never consume any liquor or substances of any type and try to stay away from beverages with sugars.

Any representative of Dupon Photography at your event will just stick with water or an energy drink because we need to stay hydrated, professional, and focused on creating the best artwork for you!

Do I have to sign a contract?

As with any professional service, a legal agreement is important to protect both parties from any liabilities. An agreement also includes a model release to provide Dupon Photography with the option to market with these photos. In return, Dupon Photography provides you with a printing and sharing release license!

Any reputable business professional is strict with contracts. If this makes you uncomfortable, contact Dupon Photography to go over everything with you.

When will I get my artwork?

Usually, the artwork is delivered no later than four weeks after your photographic experience concludes. During this time, all art is carefully: inspected, edited, retouched, uploaded in a high-resolution format to an online gallery, and sent to you with access.

Prints ordered through the online gallery can take about an additional week depending on the shipping method. If an album or book comes with your package, please allow an additional few weeks for the designing, construction, and shipping process.

Please contact Dupon Photography if you have any questions.

What equipment do you use?

Dupon Photography owns a wide range of professional full-frame cameras and the best gold-ring lenses from Nikon to capture your precious moments.

Dupon Photography also owns and rents other equipment from:
Zeiss, Sennheiser, Peak Design, Matthews, Redrock Micro, Spider Holsters, ThinkTank, Canon, Zoom, Sony, Tiffen, Steadicam, Manfrotto, Apple, Glyph, Rode, Zoom, DJI, Atomos, Impact, MagMod, SanDisk, Westcott, Panasonic, Tascam, SanDisk, Steadicam, Focusrite, and many others.

Of course, the talent does not come from the equipment that is used, but Dupon Photography wants to make sure that the best possible art is created for you.

What if I lose my artwork?

If you lose or accidentally delete your artwork after your event, don't worry. Contact Dupon Photography and you will receive all of your original pictures back.

Dupon Photography takes great responsibility in safe data systems for permanently keeping all created artwork. Dupon Photography does this by constantly backing them up and keeping them in secure hard drives.

How much are packages?

Starting package prices can be found on the investment page. Please contact Dupon Photography to schedule a phone consultation.

The needs and budget of each client can be unique, so the price varies.

Dupon Photography also does not provide discounts for any service.

Can we keep copyright?

Generally, all packages do not include full copyright ownership. However, you are granted a license for access to print, share, and use the artwork for private purposes. If you are interested in partial or full copyright ownership, please contact Dupon Photography to receive a commercial package quote.

How can we pay you?

Weddings are expensive and Dupon Photography wants the process of making payments as easy as possible. Dupon Photography accepts online payments (credit/debit cards, ACH, PayPal, Stripe, etc.,) and offline payments (cash & cashiers checks).

If you have financial complications, you can set up a payment plan or set up a way to pay that will be the easiest for you. Contact Dupon Photography for more information.

What is your style?

I am a natural photographer with an authentic and timeless style. I believe that the way I create artwork is the best way a wedding can be cherished for generations.

Dupon Photography makes sure that editors, assistants, and second shooters who may also be working at your event, also follow that style principle.

Are you insured?

Yes, of course! Dupon Photography is insured through PPA (Professional Photographers of America) with Lockton Affinity. Dupon Photography's coverage includes equipment, indemnification, and general liability up $2 million aggregate ($1 million per occurrence).

Wedding Services FAQ

What if you become unable to capture my wedding?

If you have already booked Dupon Photography, and the lead photographer/cinematographer unfortunately becomes ill, severely hurt, or has a family emergency that renders them impossible to photograph/film your wedding, Dupon Photography will find a replacement for you.

The replacement will be of same or a higher skilled photographer/cinematographer. If Dupon Photography is unable to find a replacement or you don't like the replacement that Dupon Photography finds, then you will be granted a 100% refund as soon as possible.

Will you keep my wedding date reservation?


Once Dupon Photography signs the contract and the initial payment (aka- reservation fee) is paid, your date/time is rock solid and it cannot be moved (unless needed because you changed your event date/time for some reason).

How do I know if you're available?

Please fill out the wedding contact form on the contact page or email Dupon Photography directly at

Please note that Dupon Photography has a very limited number of weddings each year as quality artwork and good client experiences are valued above all else!

Dupon Photography will respond to you on a business day (Monday-Friday) as soon as possible. Once Dupon Photography responds, you will be provided with more details about availability and booking information.

Will you travel to my wedding?

Absolutely! Dupon Photography is available as destination wedding photographers/cinematographers. Dupon Photography can travel anywhere in the United States plus most countries internationally.

Dupon Photography does require that you reimburse the team for travel expenses and pay a destination fee (if applicable).

However, any travel within the Northern Colorado area (Wellington, Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, Buckeye, Carr, Nunn, Norfolk, Laporte, Bellvue, Timnath, and Severance) or the Cheyenne Wyoming area will include no travel fee for your wedding.

Do you have a second shooter?

Typically most packages do not include a second shooter, and are photographed entirely by Gabriel Dupon. However, if you would like a second shooter, please contact Dupon Photography to add one to your package!

Cinema Services FAQ

Do you provide both photo & cinema at the same event?

Dupon Photography can only provide either photography or cinematography services at this time. Not both at the same event. If you have questions about photo/video services, feel free to contact via email at Dupon Photography may be able to offer a custom hybrid service for you.

Do you allow any feedback or additional edits?

Once Dupon Photography has produced a Final Cut of your film, you are allowed to make any edit requests. The first round/set of edit requests is free of charge.

Additional rounds of editing will require an extra post-production fee.

What does your cinema packages include?

What cinema packages include depends on what you need. Packages can be put together À La Carte.

For weddings, you can expect to receive a fully edited short film of your special day. This film can vary in duration depending on what you want. Typical lengths are anywhere from 7 to 15 minutes long.

For commercial or film production, please contact Gabriel Dupon at for details.

What is your cinematography approach?

The goal is to capture beautiful moments without interrupting your special day. Dupon Photography finds it embarrassing how many videographers get in the way and become super intrusive on your wedding day.

Dupon Photography's approach on your special day is incognito, professional, and unobtrusive. Remember the moments on your special day, not the videographer.

When will I receive the short film?

Usually, the short film is delivered no later than four weeks after your wedding concludes. During this time, your film is being created, which is a very time-consuming process.

If a motion album or USB drive comes with your package, it will arrive soon after you receive your film. Please contact Dupon Photography if you have any questions.

Can you provide drone coverage?

Yes, Dupon Photography can provide drone coverage when possible! Some locations do not allow drones (such as near airports or national parks), but other than that, drones can fly for you.

Dupon Photography is legally allowed to fly drones commercially in the USA. Gabriel Dupon and all our drone pilots have UAG certificates to fly within part 107 of the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) rules.

What is your filmmaking style?

My style of cinematography is the same as my photography: "Capturing your special moments timelessly & authentically."

I love capturing heartwarming candid moments with a very cinematic & non-intrusive approach. It will be like watching a movie about your special day!

What music can we choose?

Since most music is copyrighted, Dupon Photography has suppliers to source music legally for you. Dupon Photography can send them to you, so you can pick a few songs to go along with your film. If this sounds like a lot to do, I can find a beautiful music track for you.

Tip: I recommend finding a music track that doesn't have any lyrics for a more cinematic & heartfelt film.

Video versus cinema?

Videography is about simply using a device to capture something. There is no creativity involved.

Cinematography is the art and science of putting together a motion picture. There is a lot of creativity involved and the finished product is the same quality as a movie. At Dupon Photography, "cinematic" is the standard.
