How would you best describe your style?
I am very unintrusive and like to observe from a certain distance to avoid manipulating natural situations with the presence of my camera. But at the same time I am very close to the scene. The result is a candid style which documents the events in an honest and natural way. Others often describe my work as very romantic and emotional.
How much coverage do we need and what are your rates?
In order to adequately capture the whole day with its flow – with all its little details, the anticipation and excitement before the ceremony, the tears of joy and the high spirits afterwards – I have a minimum coverage of 8 hours.
For small, intimate or offseason weddings and elopements, please contact me to talk about lower rates.
Will we meet you beforehand?
If time and distance allow, absolutely! To me it is very important that we get to know each other before your wedding day. A meeting in person beforehand gives us a chance to talk about the details of your wedding and all your desires and ideas. And I will be happy to answer all your questions. A personal meeting is also a good opportunity for a little pre-wedding or even engagement shoot. That way you can make sure you feel comfortable being photographed by me and that you are happy with the results.
If a personal meeting is not possible, we should set an appointment for a phone/skype session.
Can we book you anywhere in the world?
Absolutely! I love to travel and I am usually happy to take any chance to do so. So please take me wherever you need to go in this world for your wedding day. 🙂
How long does the portrait shoot take?
An hour would be great, or even longer if you wish for something great and individual that requires more time. More time gives us more possibilities. Of course, I realize it is not always easy to leave the guests behind for a couple of hours to go take pictures. And I’ve gotten great results in less than 30 minutes. So, it’s really up to you and much time you want to spend. It is also possible to do the couple shoot before the ceremony, if that is more convenient for you and fits your schedule.
How many images will we get?
That depends on the time you booked me for. A coverage of 8 hours usually results in a selection of 600 images. In any case, I will ensure you the photos will be carefully selected so that all moments are adequately covered and your story is well told.
What about copyrights? Do we have to pay for every single print?
Of course not. You will get the carefully selected images in full resolution on a USB stick and you are allowed to print the images as many times as you want.
When will we see our photos?
After your wedding day I will carefully review all images and make a selection. The selected images will be individually processed, meaning optimized in color, brightness, saturation etc., some in color, some in black and white. Processing the images takes up quite some time, therefore it may take up to 5 weeks until you will see your photos. I will also set up an online gallery for you. That way even guests who travelled from far away will be able to see the photos online.
