Questions to ask at wedding photograher, things do you know (FAQ)
WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
I’m based in Trento, but I’m available worldwide.
WHAT’S 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.
REAL WEDDING – WHY CHOOSE TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS (optional)
Real Wedding, is reportage pure and simple!
Two photographers, two ways of seeing, that tell together any emotional moment from different points of view (the rings exchange and at the same time the emotion of the parents). Working together allows us to document in a best, spontaneous and natural way your wedding, without any directions, you just have to be yourself. Contact me for more information and price of a Real Wedding service: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 reccommend a very good videographer that is perfect for you: http://origamivideography.it/
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?
Throughout a wedding I take a lot of photos, but only (150-200 photos) allow me to tell a story. Other photos are just a bonus.
My job isn’t to shoot many photos as possible, my work is to tell the intimate story through my eyes, with some accurate photos.
HOW LOGN WILL YOU STAY AT THE WEDDING?
I’m available for the whole day, from the bride preparation at the evening (12h). For more coverage contact me.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERAS DO YOU USE?
I use Nikon Cameras with professional lens.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK THE SERVICE?
It’s always best to book the service about 8 months before the wedding .
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)?
Photobook: 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.
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.
DO YOU PHOTOSHOP THE PICTURES AND EDIT THEM?
The photos that i deliver are always post producted 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.
