I’m a wedding photographer capturing destination weddings in Crete and other Greek Islands. Currently I’m living in Crete. Below you can find some information about frequently asked questions. If you have more questions contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org I will replay to you usually in 24hours.
HOW DO YOU WORK ON THE WEDDING DAY? WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
During the wedding day I’m trying to be very discreet. The more invisible I am, the more natural emotions I can catch which is one of my main aim. The style of my work connects all kinds of photography like reportage, portraits, and also documentary photos. I love natural light. On the Wedding day I start with shooting your preparations, later the Wedding ceremony and at the end the reception. When you choose me as your wedding photographer you can be sure I will try to show in the pictures your real emotions, love and happiness, also in some in-between moments to tell the story of Your Day in the most beautiful way.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED IN?
I live in Crete, in Rethymno.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT YOU?
WE DON’T LIVE IN CRETE. HOW CAN WE TALK?
Actually, all the things can be arranged online. We can talk on Skype, we can contact through emails and still have everything discussed.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU WORK ON?
I work on full frame professional Nikon camera with bright lenses.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?
Please, write to me on email@example.com and I will send you a brochure with all the information.
HOW ABOUT NON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
Yes, I do family and also anniversary pictures. In such cases I prefer to photograph you during some activities for example with your family. We can do some little posing but not too much. I believe your natural behaviour and emotions are much better.
DO YOU DO PRE OR AFTER WEDDING SESSIONS?
Yes, of course. It can be a great memory for you and your family. You can also use it for example in your wedding invitations. It’s a great opportunity to get to know each other, and also to get an additional set of pictures. What is important for me to choose a place where you feel comfortable, relaxed and fun.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER?
It depends on the size of the wedding, but from a full day it’s about 400-500 pictures.
DO YOU EDIT ALL PICTURES?
Yes and the time spent on editing is also very important for the final result as it is a part of my vision of you and Your Day.
WILL YOU RETOUCH OUR PICTURES?
I will do professional editing of colours, contrast, white balance, saturation and others but I will not retouch your pictures for example to remove a person out of a picture.
DO YOU OFFER HOURLY WEDDING COVERAGE?
Yes. Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW CAN WE BOOK?
A deposit and signed Wedding agreement are required to save your date. I cannot hold any dates without those two requirements.
WHAT IS THE FORMAT AND RESOLUTION OF THE PICTURES WHICH WE WILL RECEIVE FROM YOU?
You will receive all the pictures prepared for publishing on the Internet (JPG) and also high resolution pictures prepared for printing (JPG, 300dpi, sRGB) – so you can print them in as many sizes as you want!
CAN I HAVE RAW FILES FROM YOU?
I’m afraid no. I never give RAW files. I believe you choose me for your Wedding Photographer in order to have the best final result and have beautiful pictures. You pay me to prepare the pictures for printing, you pay me for the time spent on selection and editing all pictures. I want to give you the comfort that you will get from me an absolutely the best final product.
WILL YOU GIVE US ALL THE PICTURES FROM THE WEDDING?
I will give you the final product, so the best pictures after editing. During the wedding I’m taking lots of pictures in order to choose the best from the best later and give it to you. The process of choosing the best pictures is time consuming but this is also a task which you pay me for. I recommend a nice article about that but if you have more questions, I’m always open and willing to help you!
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR ANY FAILURE OF YOUR EQUIPMENT? HOW?
Yes, of course. I have always a back up camera, lenses and memory cards.
DO YOU MIND IF WE HAD OUR ADDITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER OR WE ASKED OUR UNCLE TO SHOOT ALSO ON THE WEDDING DAY?
Yes, unfortunately it can be a problem, talking about professional photographers and also amateurs. If you choose me for your Wedding photographer, I truly believe you trust me and you decided to document Your Day by me. Any other additional photographer can make my work difficult and make the quality of the pictures lower. These people can destroy by the accident many photos. Such situations are perfectly described by other photographers in some articles, for example here.
HOW ABOUT A VIDEO?
I can recommend you some good videomakers who can create a great video from your wedding. Just let me know.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING DAY?
For preparations pictures, which are a great beginning of the whole wedding story, a bright room with not many things inside is the best. The less things around you, the better. Another good advice and idea is to ask kindly your guests, or at least the closest persons for example bridesmaids, to wear the same colour clothes – it looks really great in the pictures and you will have lots of fun during the session!
