Will you publish my pictures?
I may use your pictures for publication on my photography website and Instagram. If you want to keep your pictures private, 20 % additional fee will apply. Though I don’t publish even a half of the weddings I shot on the website, I still prefer to know that I can use your pictures (it gives an additional drive to a photographer, no artist likes the idea that his work will be somewhere hidden :) By “using” I mean that I will happily display them with pride in my online portfolio for couples that like you, are in search for a wedding photographer, whose work resonates in their hearts. (for me it’s like putting the images in frames and hanging them on the walls! :) I am always happy to come to a compromise and show only those pictures that you previously have approved.
Do you offer hourly wedding coverage or only packages?
In my photography pricing guide I prepared example collections based on hourly coverage. You can hire me starting at 2 hours. As every wedding and couple is unique, I will be happy to make a custom offer based on your needs. Write me please about yourself, your wedding and what you are looking for, and I will come back to you with the offer very soon.
How many images will we get?
I prefer quality over quantity, but I am always attracted by something that is so special at this (or that) very moment, so in the end I do photograph a lot. It’s difficult to give a particular number, you can estimate 50-200 pictures per hour, depending on weather, number of locations and people willing to be photographed!
Can we get pictures in RAW format?
No, they are so heavy, the process of saving raw images will be too slow and complicated, I would prefer to spend this time on something that makes more sense.
Can we select the pictures that we want to be edited?
Theoretically yes, but practically? You will need to come to my place for a couple of hours at least, to look through your wedding pictures. Isn’t it better to have them delivered to you all nicely edited? :)
When is the best time to book?
As most weddings happen on Saturdays, the dates tend to be booked out quickly. I would recommend to reserve the date 6-12 months in advance. Being a person that makes decision in the last moment myself, I understand that there are a lot of people like me in the world. If you read this with wedding plans in the upcoming two months, do not hesitate to send me a message, some days are being kept asked by couples again and again and some are just waiting for you! :) Having a wedding on a different day than Saturday, gives you more freedom in terms of getting the location and photographer you wish.
What is your strongest point?
I think, finding beauty in literally everything around us and being able to show it in the pictures.
What is your weakest point?
I tend to spend too much time on editing the pictures, overthinking the colour nuances, and as I don’t like strong contrasts and filters, I don’t think that people even notice the difference (it’s also one of the reasons, why I love film photography - I simply do not need to change the colours, the scans will arrive perfectly balanced)
Do you require meals during our wedding?
If it’s not a long wedding, I like not to eat at all using it as an opportunity to lose weight :) If it’s a full day wedding, I will appreciate to have some food and water. Thank you for asking!
We are afraid it will be rainy on our wedding day …
Yes, it’s a possibility :) but you should not be afraid of it. Clouds is the best scenario for wedding photography, they act as a huge soft diffuser that takes away harsh and contrasty shadows from people’s shadows. Rain will create atmospheric and moody pictures.
