[one_half]We love your photography and want you to be our wedding photographer. How do we book you?
Simply contact me via the contact form on my website or directly via my email account firstname.lastname@example.orgI will get back to you within 48 hours, will check my availability and answer all your questions.After we find a package which suits you, we will sign an Agreement form and I will ask a reasonable deposit. The balance is due on the wedding day or the day after, which is standard industry practice.
We love the portrait pictures you make for the couples…can we also have pictures like that?
Before I started wedding photography I worked in the fashion photography (and still do), so I love to do some editorial shots with my couples and I think they love me for these shots too ; )Of course we are gonna do them for you as well, but we need to point out a few things here:
-if you have a wedding with many guests, we will probably need to arrange this photo shooting for the day after your wedding. We need a minimum of 2 hours to get the best results. If the next day photo shooting seems impossible for you, we can do it on the wedding day, but for that you will need to leave your guests for a while, not for 2 hours of course, but for at least 45 min.
-if your wedding won’t have many guests, or it will be just two of you (like most weddings in Santorini) we will do this photo shooting during the day.
The best rule to get super high end result in such photo sessions is not to depend on time and not to worry about anything ; )
Can we plan our wedding coverage without meeting up with you?
Of course you can. This is very common: I often meet my lovely couples on the actual wedding day, but it doesn’t mean that we didn’t exchange tons of emails before;) We can use e-mail, skype or phone line to discuss all needed details and get to know each other better!
Do you shoot wedding photography on film or digital?
I have chosen digital, mostly because it gives many more opportunities in post production: skin retouching, color correction etc, which I believe are necessary tools for enhancing photography.
How many pictures you will shoot at my wedding day?
The amount of pictures depends directly on how long I am booked for. But I try to follow the rule: better quality than quantity. Anyway you will get coverage in all important moments of your wedding day and more. Of course if you are planning on having a big wedding we will need an assistant (second photographer), so the amount of total pictures will increase. All these details are mentioned in the contract we sign.
[/one_half][one_half_last]In which format will I receive my pictures?
All photography is shot and managed in professional camera RAW format. After processed by me they will be converted into JPEG format. You will receive all pictures on DVDs in high JPEG quality for future printing. You will receive low resolution images as well for fast sharing and screen viewing.Please note: I don’t give to my clients original RAW images. Why? Because for me it would be like a painter selling an unfinished portrait to his client.
Do you work with assistants?
Yes I do work with assistants, when necessary. Bigger weddings require larger teams.
I have a family member who is a keen photographer, do you mind if he will be taking pictures together with you?
Honestly, I am not a big fan of it for many reasons. First, the other person just gets in the way, distorts the image when using his flash, causes distractions and confusion. I have experienced this a few times and can tell you that most likely it will affect our final results not in the best way. Better let your friends relax and have fun and we will do all the job!
Do you provide video coverage?
Of course we do! We provide video wedding coverage and we love it as much as photography. My main speciality is TV directing, and all my cameramen have very good experience in wedding production, documentaries and commercials. You can be sure that you will get an unforgettable video, with taste and style, with all those beautiful details that you should never forget!Please notice that we don’t shoot video non-stop and you won’t get 5 hours of original materials. What you will have is short length professionally edited wedding video which you will be proud to share with your family and friends and show to your grandchildren!We use high definition equipment, which allows us to get fantastic quality.We always prepare a little script (together with the couple), choosing locations and concept. Very often we shoot the wedding day and also the day after (or before ). You can see samples of our work in the VIDEO section of the gallery of this web site, or on our Vimeo Channel.
When do you suggest one starts booking a photographer?
As early as possible. First of all, all good photographers are booked in advance. Bookings can be arranged even a year or more in advance, which is very common with my clients. Photography and Videography are your only memories from the wedding day, so you understand the importance to book very early. Another reason: everybody wants to get married on Saturday, so if you are one of them, better book me earlier, otherwise there is a very high chance that I will already be booked. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t have last minute bookings – I have a lot! So in any case, don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to assist you. [/one_half_last]
