Frequently asked questions
Here are some frequently asked questions about wedding photography, engagement photography or civil marriage photography, as well as their answers. In choosing the right photographer for your special event there may be some questions that are asked quite often. Here you can find some information that can make your choice easier. Below you can see FAQs for wedding photographers.
HOW CAN WE BOOK YOU?
HOW LONG IN ADVANCE should WE BOOK a photographer for our wedding?
The sooner the better. Most professional wedding photographers are hired even a year before the event. Wedding photographers are booked especially in the summer on Saturdays. If wedding photos matter to you then you should contact a professional wedding photographer as soon as possible.
If you would like to know if we are still available on your wedding date, please contact us, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We book weddings, engagements or editorial shoots only with a retainer and a signed contract. We book a limited amount of weddings a year, and we cannot block dates without a deposit or without signing the contract.
If you decide that we are the perfect wedding photographers for your wedding then you can send us an email with all the details of the wedding day and all your expectations. We will have a meeting via Skype / WhatsApp, or we will meet for a coffee to discuss more details. We will send you the contract online with the complete details, which can be e-signed. Our deposit is 30%, the remaining balance is due 1 week after the day of the event.
Do you travel?
How many hours will you be with us on the wedding day?
In our wedding photography collections we have included photo assistance for 8 hours and photo assistance throughout the whole event. I believe that the wedding day should be fully documented with all the events that follow to create your story. Ideally on the day of the wedding we will be with you from the moment the groom's preparations take place, as well as the bride's preparations, until the end of the party, including the moment when the bouquet is thrown.
In our wedding photography contract you can find the number of hours for photo assistance for any event.
Yes! We are destination wedding photographers in Provence and we photograph weddings all around the world. We are available worldwide for weddings or elopements.
To avoid delays we arrive at the location the day before. This gives us the opportunity to find locations for the best spots for the bridal photo shoot. Our final price will include travel fees and accommodation.
When do we receive our images?
How many photos will we receive?
We understand how important photos from any event are, so we try to edit them as quickly as possible, but paying close attention to each photo. Depending on the event, the duration before the delivery of the photos can be between 4 and 8 weeks. Wedding albums take up to 4 weeks to be ready after the order has been placed. You will also benefit from a password-protected online gallery that you can share with your guests.
You’ll receive all images in high resolution without watermarks, logos or anything similar.
The number of photos differs, depending on the type of event, duration and dynamic. There is not a limited number of photos we can deliver. It all depends on the situation of the wedding day. How many guests you have attending, how much time we have for portraits, how many details there are to photograph.
We assure you that you will get the best photographs from your day. We aim for quality over quantity.
How many photos will be edited?
Do you provide raw files?
Editing is half the process that goes into the final images. As professional wedding photographers we know when to underexpose or overexpose the photos and this won't look pleasant right out of the camera. Raw files also need to be edited in professional editing software.
We consider that our edits make our brand unique, and we love to keep our control on our brand marketing and value, therefore we do not provide raw files.
We will personally edit all the photos that we will deliver. As we believe that all the photos make up your wedding story, so there must be consistency in all the photos you receive. Thus, we will personally edit each photo according to the style you see in our wedding photography portfolio.
All the photos will be edited in a professional photo editing software. All the photos will be delivered in JPEG format at the highest resolution.
What is your Wedding photographing style?
DO YOU PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL Wedding photography SERVICEs?
Our style can be described as a mix of reportage wedding photography and creative portrait. We document the most important moments of marriage with discretion. During the portrait session we give some directions and advices to the couple. In that we want to make the approach with the camera easier and more attractive. We love the natural light, and we like to play with light and shadow contrasts. If possible, we preferably shoot outdoors, taking advantage of what the location offers us, in terms of landscape, light and elements of composition.
See more details about our approach in wedding photography on our dedicated page.
In addition to wedding photography we also provide photo sessions as in engagement sessions (pre-wedding), day after sessions (post-wedding), elopements (exchange of vows), and “Trash The Dress“.
We also work with professional prints who create photo albums for designers and photographers. Contact me for extra photo albums or printed photos.
Do you offer wedding videography as well?
Is it possible to schedule a portrait shoot of the bridal couple on the wedding day?
We dedicate ourselves to wedding photography, but we collaborate with professional wedding videographers that we can recommend. Event photography is more than a passion for us, and we focus 100% on photography at every event we have, whether it's wedding photography or a couple photo-shoot.
We highly recommend scheduling a couple photo session on the wedding day. The couple shoot in the wedding day is an important part and is included in every wedding collection. The estimated time for this shoot is 30 to 60 min. The best time frame for the couple shoot is after the reception or after we arrive at the party's location, when your friends and family are occupied with appetizers and drinks.
What equipment do you use?
Do you consider our personal and individual wishes and ideas for photos?
We will consider all ideas, but we cannot guarantee that we can fulfill them. If you have ideas about photos, I would love to hear them before the wedding day, in order to talk about them and see if they can be done. You can also create a mood-board and show it to me.
We only use professional equipment, two cameras with several interchangeable lenses. In our kit there are flashes that face any dark environments, as well as other things that enhance our creativity for unforgettable photos.
We mainly shoot digital due to the flexibility it offers us, but we also have a wedding collection that includes film fine art wedding photography.
