Other questions that you sometimes ask

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.

Trendy and Minimalist weddings

Despite some kind of traditions, not every couple strives for inviting dozens of guests or only intimate friends to an over-the-top wedding show. In case you are a bride who dreams of a careless wedding planning which doesn`t take a lot of time (though the celebration will be elegant, up-to-date and chic), it makes sense reflecting on the minimalist trend.

The minimalist way of life is all about living a clutter-free life, possessing only those things which are significant and useful to you. That is the major reason why the minimalist weddings we may know and actually desire are described as modest, with clean decor and an impeccable atmosphere which concentrates on plainness. For you to be prepared, we’ve assembled 5 ideas for a minimalist wedding which will cover the majority of the details of the whole wedding theme styling.

1. Wedding Invitations

Every couple is aware of that wedding cards are of utmost importance for the earliest positive emotions you`ll get from the guests. There is no necessity for a pretentious presentation. First and foremost, introduce guests to the wedding theme by persisting in being classic. For instance, use only a handwritten stationery suite of one colour.

2. Natural Table Settings

Remember that the minimalist way of living suggests us making good use of space. Thereby make it possible for guests to sit at longer tables so that you will avoid a constrained atmosphere. Neatly decorate tables with white linen and geometrical crockery.

3. Industrial Minimalist Centrepieces

Designers recommend couples to try out different themes. For example, industrial minimalism lets out gentle country accents, while still caring for the modernity of your minimalist wedding.

4. Wedding Cake

Although several years ago a classic all-white wedding cake may seem too plain and even old-fashioned, nowadays it`s a great trend in the minimalistic wedding world. New techniques and cake-decoration stuff are exquisite. What is more, for styling purposes, concentrate on where and how the cake stands instead of trying your best to find lots of unnecessary decorations. One can just attach several dried leaves for a tone of colour.

5. Food and drink stations

You`d better focus on the presentation of the dishes you`d chosen rather than the decor. Uncomplicated adornments such as plants are the ideal organic embellishment.
