How would you describe your photography style? What is your approach?
My signature style is a mixture of timeless artistic portraiture and reportage - style images with an editorial flair. I love naturally capturing our couple's stories and try to keep their time in front of my cameras relaxed and comfortable. During some parts of the day I step back to document spontaneous moments, emotional candids and love of a wedding day, and during the other times I prefer to add some curated direction into scenes to artistically tell a story of your wedding day.
Before the day, I will help you create a custom timeline for your wedding day, help with vendor recommendations. With over 10 years of wedding photography experience, I’m here to also make sure that day is as stress-free and smooth as possible. While capturing beautiful portraits of your perfect day I will be there to keep you calm, help you with your dress, keep track of your bouquet, and keep your groomsmen in line.
I love leaving your wedding with a feeling of gaining new friends, while you can relax knowing your memories were documented, and get excited knowing preview photos will be in your inbox soon!
I don't know how to pose....
That’s ok! Your wedding is not a photo shoot, so you have nothing to worry about. I'll guide you during portraits, but the rest of the day all you have to do is relax, let go and have fun.
My main purpose is to make sure you enjoy every moment of your wedding. I’ll be there to create memories of everything that goes down.
WHAT ABOUT GROUP PHOTOS?
There’s no way grandma is leaving without a family photo to put on her fridge. and I’m not one to disappoint a grandmother.
While I don’t post those personal photos on my website, we’ll do it swiftly and take a few group photos so everyone’s happy.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
If you checked most of my photos and you like my work,I will send a contract necessary to be signed by the client. The deadline for advance payment is seven days after signing the contract. To successfully book your date, you are required to pay 30% of the total amount of the chosen package. The payment are bank transfer to my account, written on the contract.
WHAT DOES AN ONLINE GALLERY?
As time flies, technology is more and more developing, so I'm working according to that. I don't deliver photographs on the USB stick because you can download all photos from the gallery on your own devices as many times as you want. That is a private gallery that everyone can't see, just couples and me. The newlyweds get a password for the gallery to check photographs, like them, download, or share them away. If you give the password to others, they can do it, too. The online gallery is not visible on my website.
WHAT ARE YOU SHOOTING THE MOST ON THE WEDDING DAY?
When I take photos, I am focused on the atmosphere of the day and the spontaneous moments with natural light and shadows. I like to photograph the details because they connect the parts of your wedding. My favorite part of the wedding is the ceremony and session. The ceremony is the main part because emotions come to the top, and the session is your intimate moment of the day that you can rarely repeat. The vibe of your session on a wedding day cannot be compared to a session a few days before. Try to find at least half an hour for yourself. I photograph wedding parties with a flash, sometimes without it, to achieve cinematic moments. Long exposures are also something I like to practice. Any guest at a wedding who wants a portrait photo can freely ask me, and I will always take it.
CAN WE SEE THE WHOLE PRIVATE ONLINE GALLERY FROM THE PREVIOUS NEWLYWEDS ?
I have a lot of content and photos on my social networks and website. Because of the GDPR, I have to respect the privacy of the couple's gallery password. Some clients don't want all the photos to be public. On my website in the "BLOG" section, I have some full-day weddings that I photographed, and these are photos approved by the couples. All my images show all parts of the wedding. Details, getting ready moments, the portraits, ceremony, party, and the wedding sessions. If you want me to be your photographer, all the content I showed will be enough to make your final decision.
WHAT DO WE RECEIVE?
I focus on making the experience stellar so you don’t have to worry about anything.
I deliver around 750-1000 photos . You will receive an online gallery with all the edited images, in high resolution, ready to print - which I highly recommend.
It takes me 4 to 6 weeks to deliver the photos. If you're ordering an album I'll prepare a custom design with the best photos of the day and send you the draft before printing so you can make any changes you need.
Do you work with second shooter? Asistants?
I work on my own and with second photographers depending on the details and size of the wedding. Generally with weddings over 150 guests I would recommend a second photographer, for less than, I feel confident photographing on my own. But I will be able to give you my recommendation given your exact plans for your wedding and order of events.
HOW LONG HAS THE ONLINE GALLERY BEEN ACTIVE?
After I send you the gallery with the password, it is active for one year, . That’s enough time for a couple to share a link with guests and download all the photos on several devices.
