Your Frequently Asked Questions

I believe that my pictures should speak about who you are as a person, about your relationship, about your joy of living. My goal is to provide you with an editorial-based representation of your wedding day, with minimal guiding or posing, through candid and well-cared photographs.

My photography is individually tailored to each couple based on the location and some specific requirements.

 

How long will you stay for on the wedding day?

I love to keep the things simple. Full day coverage comes as standard for weddings, and you will receive all of your images edited in high-resolution – complete with personal printing rights. For elopements, the standard coverage is 5 hours, but you can extend the time on request.

How many photos do I get? When?

You will get more than 500 images, individually colour corrected to bring out their full potential and provide harmony to the collection, within 3 months. I’ll do my best to provide 10-15 photos to share with families and friends within a few hours from the event.

Do you take traditional family photos?

Absolutely. I strongly believe in those family images, as they’re records of your entire family at a critical time in their history together. I will be happy to shoot a group photo with all the guests and some more intimate portraits with your families and the wedding party. For the rest of the time, I focus on your families and friends, taking candid photos of them during the reception and making sure all the event is well documented.

Do you shoot video?

I focus only and exclusively on photography. I will be happy to suggest some professional videographers I work regularly with. I reserve the right to cancel my service if your videographer does not keep up with my policies.

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Yes, I do! Please take note that most engagement sessions have to be done Monday-Friday because of the heavy wedding schedule.

When should we book you for our wedding?

ASAP. I work on a first come, first serve basis. I don’t pencil dates on my cal, therefore weddings are booked when the contract has been signed, and the retainer has been paid.

What is your payment schedule?

A booking fee/retainer is due to reserve your date. You’ll have one more payment after the event. I support Paypal and credit cards. All the process is easier than a slice of cake.

Can we meet you before the event?

I would love to do that, but I travel a lot and often it’s impossible. In fact, the majority of the couples hire me without an in-person meeting. However, I would be happy to schedule a Skype video meeting. I am also very quick, and very thorough, with emails and I do answer most questions that way.

Can we see the outtakes and all of the images that didn’t make the “final cut”?

Please know that when “editing” I’m not striving to hit some number of images to deliver and throwing out “good” pictures. That’s why I take out only eyes-closed, flash-didn’t-fire, person-walked-in-front-of-the-lens, real outtakes. The images not selected are deleted, and therefore aren’t available.

Do you provide the RAW files from my wedding day?

My package comes with a full resolution image download. However, I do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from my shoots because I believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, I’m often shooting with the end (post-produced) product in mind.

Will you publish my photos on your website?

Yes, I will. My business comes from my website, that I care of with many photos from many beautiful photo shoots. For me, it’s vital to publish some photos there, and this is what I will do with your photos as well.

Can you recommend us other vendors, such as make-up artist, wedding planners, and caterers?

I would love to do that. I know many great professionals. Just tell me what you need, and I’ll email you a list of the best professionals in the area.
