Questions to Ask a Wedding Photographer
FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions!
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
My style is mainly reportage with some poses. I try to tell, in a natural way all aspects of your day.
I want to remind at my client that my job is to document and tell the day… it’s impossible for me to guarantee the presence of all the people in my photos, so if you want the photo with relatives/parents/grandmother … ask me without any problems.
DO YOU TAKE DETAILS AND FAMILY PHOTOS?
Yes! A wedding reportage isn’t complete without details and family/parents photos! i take all the photographs of all details that will be present at your wedding.
If you have any particular details/things that you want having photos, please communicate to me in time.
REAL WEDDING – IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Would like to having more photos of your guests? Do you like the idea of having the photos for both of your preparations (bride and groom)? or Do you want a wedding reportage without poses? In these cases (and not only) you need a second photographer.
Working together allows us to document your wedding in a more complete and spontaneous way: two photographers, two ways of seeing, which tell together an exciting moment from different points of view. Just think of the rings exchange, first photographer can focus on the couple, while the second capture the emotion of the parents. With two photographers you just be yourself.

COULD YOU SUGGEST ME A VIDEOGRAPHER?
Sure! I don’t make video, however I give you some advice. Usually wedding video are very boring, because are too long and show fully the ceremony. I would recommend a very good videographer that is perfect for you:
If you already have a videographer, remember that i can’t work with “old style videographers” with spotlights and lights which disturb the atmosphere and my work.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL YOU TAKE?
In a wedding I take a lot of photos, once selected and processed you will have (300-400 photos) of your wedding day. Other photos are just a bonus.
My job is not to take and deliver as many pictures as possible, is to tell with my sensitivity and through some photos your wedding.
HOW LOGN WILL YOU STAY AT THE WEDDING?
I’m available for the whole day, from the bride preparation at the evening (12h). If you request more coverage over 12h will be charged an hourly fee extra.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERAS DO YOU USE?
I use Nikon Cameras with professional lens.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK THE SERVICE?
If your weddig will be on Saturday it’s always best to book the service about 8 months before the wedding . While for midweek services at least 4-6 months before.
HOW DO I BOOK THE SERVICE?
It’s possible to book the service by email and after verifying my availability I need that you making a deposit to book your wedding.
WHO WILL SELECT THE PHOTOS FOR THE ALBUM (optional)?
Photo book: I will prepare a layout with your photos that I think are a best choice for tell your wedding. After this it will be possible to change/replace some photos of layout.
Traditional Album: I will recommend the photos that I think should be part of your album, the choice is typically 50% mine and 50% yours. In every case it will be decided together with the bride and the groom.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
I’m based in Trento, but I’m available worldwide.
WHAT ABOUT THE TRIP COST?
The trip is free up to 100Km from trento. In addition for Real Wedding service there is a second photographer trip cost (only fuel, highway fees and possible accommodation). Contact me with the location of your wedding for personalized price.
WHEN WILL THE PHOTOS BE READY?
To satisfy the newly wed’s curiosity, within a few weeks from the wedding the photos will be put on my website/facebook.
For the delivery of all of the work it will take between 4-7 months.
BOTHERING YOU OTHER PEOPLE THAT MAKE PHOTOS?
Absolutely not! But, i must be free to perform my job.
WHAT KIND OF ALBUMS DO YOU OFFER?
DO YOU PHOTOSHOP THE PICTURES AND EDIT THEM?
The photos that i deliver are always post produced only color/contrast (like you see on my website). But i don’t edit other things because reportage pictures are a mirror of your wedding day. Then it’s also impossible for me to take your “best side”. Your wedding is not a fashion shooting!
If you have any request tell me without problem… relatives, friends with whom you want a picture?? or a special moment? Let me know!
I will also need to eat something, i’m didn’t need of the whole launch/dinner… just something to not fall while working.
