FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In this section we answer some common questions concerning our 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 answer all your queries. The 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 needs, location and budget.
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?
At most smaller weddings a single photographer will be sufficient but do consider that having a second shooter does provide additional "insurance" that all the crucial moments are captured. Working as a team also provides extra support during portrait sessions and in making sure everything runs smoothly and without interruption in coverage. When shooting events though it usually requires the presence of just one photographer.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We shoot with Canon and Nikon cameras and use only prime lenses. Depending on specific needs, we also hire specialised equipment.
DO YOU ALSO SHOOT ANALOGUE?
We shoot with digital cameras.
DO YOU DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
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 one of us would also be responsible for taking the portraits themselves. Alternatively, if you would like, 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 my 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 my 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?
Yes, we do 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, also Polish and Czech.
