FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In this section we answer some common questions concerning our pricing, conditions and methods of work. In case there is a question that we haven't answered below please feel free to contact us; we will be happy to get back to you.
Our contact details are available on the CONTACT page.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?
Please contact us for a specific quote so we can adjust our pricing to your requirements, location and budget. We have hourly rates giving you the most flexibility.
HOW LONG DO WE NEED TO WAIT FOR PHOTOS?
Up to two months for wedding photos. It sounds like a long time but the necessary image adjustments on hundreds of photos take time and we want to be sure we provide you with the best possible end result. However we will do all we can to deliver the images as soon as possible and just to make the wait a bit more bearable we will send you 3-5 photographs within 48hours of the wedding to share with your friends or family.
DO YOU WORK ALONE OR WITH A SECOND SHOOTER?
It is possible to hire a single photographer for your wedding but we strongly recommend to have a second shooter as well, as only with two people on board can we be certain that all crucial moments are captured. Working as a team also provides extra support during portrait sessions and in making sure everything runs smoothly. When shooting events though it usually requires the presence of just one photographer.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We mostly shoot with Canon cameras and we use prime lenses. Depending on specific needs, we also hire specialised equipment for example extra lighting, lenses, battery packs and so forth.
DO YOU ALSO SHOOT ANALOGUE?
We shoot primarily with digital cameras, however we are open to discussing analogue options.
DO YOU DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Engagement, trash the dress or family sessions - we do them all.
CAN YOU ORGANISE A PHOTO BOOTH?
Most of the couples we are hired by choose to create their own DIY photo booth, by which we mean a spot where the guests can be photographed with a nice background. This is a cheaper option for the couple and allows for their creative spirit to be unleashed. In this case only the lighting would be set up by us and we would also be responsible for taking the portraits themselves. Alternatively, if you would like us to, we could set up a booth from scratch, in the style of your choosing. If an automatic photo booth is what you are after, we will be happy to provide you with addresses of some of the companies that supply them for events.
No matter what your preference is, a photo booth is a great way to photograph all your friends and family and improve the fun factor in general, so you should definitely consider having one. For more details like fees, please don't hesitate to contact us.
WILL WE BE ABLE TO RECEIVE THE ORIGINAL RAW FILES?
Raw files are like raw ingredients that are used to create a wonderful meal and on their own do not give you the full taste of the final dish. They are a base on which we form our images and once they serve their purpose they are like an element that has been blended into the mix and cannot be separated. So to keep up with our standards we will provide you with the final, tasty selection of photographs that will leave you satisfied and happy and keep the raw files in our pantry.
DO YOU RETOUCH YOUR IMAGES?
Sometimes we make minor adjustments to bring out the natural beauty in the portrayed persons. However our goal is always to capture a true and honest portrait of the couples we work with.
COULD WE APPLY OUR OWN CHANGES TO THE IMAGES ONCE WE RECEIVE THE HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHS?
The images you will receive will be the final version of the photos and are not intended to be altered. You can always contact us with a specific request to make adjustments to the images after they have been delivered to you.
DO YOU ALSO CREATE WEDDING ALBUMS?
Currently it is not part of our standard service but we will be happy to create a printed album for an additional fee or alternatively recommend websites which make the creation of your own perfect photo album a simple and fun process.
HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL PORTRAIT SESSION TAKE?
Anywhere from 30 minutes up to two hours. The portraits can be taken before, after or on the wedding day; it is up to you.
WILL WE BE ABLE TO PRINT THE IMAGES OURSELVES?
Yes. Once you receive the final digital images you will be able to make as many paper prints as you like.
DO YOU SPEAK ANY OTHER LANGUAGES?
Yes. Apart from English and German, Olga speaks Polish and Czech.
