‘There”s probably a lot of questions you would want to ask but didn”t have the time to send me an email? Well, I”ve listed a few below just to help get you started. Feel free to contact me if you have other questions other than the ones below.
How would you identify your photographic style?
We shoot mostly photojournalistic and a little bit of traditional. We have been called “ninja” photographers as we are rarely seen hovering around the bride & groom. It”s their day so we make sure the friends and relatives get to see them instead of us.
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We rarely do any Photoshop retouching. We do enhance the colors a bit and also conversions to B&W/Sepia depending on the overall style and feel.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We are experienced in all types of lighting although we prefer not to use flash as much as possible.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We are all digital. Go Green!
How many photographers do you work with?
We have two photographers: One for small weddings, Two for larger weddings Of course additional fees would apply for the second photographer.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Why of course.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one wedding in a day? Weekend?
No. We can book only one wedding in a day or a weekend. We want to capture the bride & groom as much as possible.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the wedding day?
Yes. The replacement photographer will be chosen and reviewed by me prior to the actual event.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
The prices include the full day (8 hours) as well as the consultation prior to making the final booking. This also include time & equipment spent during the whole process such as edits to the final delivery of your product(s).
Do you require a meal break? If yes, do you require that the wedding party provide your meal?
We normally don”t ask for a meal break but we”ll try to take a short break if necessary.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes. The charges will only be for the travel expenses such as transportation, etc.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
