What, When & How ?
Your Big Day is coming and you might have a few questions for me . Please go through this . I hope you will find the answers to the most commonly asked questions here.
I will also ask you to complete an online Wedding Day Details form which will help me to plan the day .
1. What time we will arrive at your place and what time we will go ?
You have all this information displayed in your contract as well. We will be with you 2-2,5 hrs prior to the ceremony and we will leave after 2-3 songs after your first dance , however not later than 10pm.
2. What should you get ready for your photographer/videographer ?
Prep time can be stressful, and it can be twice as stressful when you’re being crowded by a lot of (well-meaning) people. Try to cut the crowd down, so you can relax a bit, and so that your makeup artist and photographer can do their work. Please remember we need extra time (30min) to setup our video gear in the venue/church. You should also consider the travel time to your ceremony place.
3. Preparing all the details you want us to take photos/videos of. Wedding Dress , shoes , flowers, jewellery ,charms etc. will help me a lot. Thank you
4. Consider banning phones / cameras etc . at the ceremony.
Your beloved and favourite uncle with his own camera might be a nightmare for your photographer/videographer ... but also any camera/phone, held up in the air during the ceremony – particularly at inopportune times – are an anathema to wedding photographers. It’s not too much to ask of guests that they hold off from taking their own photos during the ceremony, and instead simply enjoy the occasion.
5. Write a list of family formals, and keep your photographer abreast of any family issues that might crop up.
We do not know your family, so it helps a great deal if we have a list to work with when taking family photos. Let us know about divorces and/or deaths – this could help avoid some embarrassing moments. I will ask for this information prior to the day, but it pays to be ready if I don’t. It would be best if your best man or groom's man who is familiar with your family has the copy and will help us gather the people for desired photos. This will help to make everything much quicker.
7.Ceremony & Speeches
Every Wedding is different. Depending on type of the wedding ceremony many different things might be involved or not. ( Sand ceremony/ readings/ hand fasting etc) So please let us know if there is anything we should be aware of. We just want to be prepared and capture those moments for you. We wish to know how long approximately the speeches will take. This is important as we have to get our gear ready. If you are going to present flowers to mothers or anybody, please let us know. We do not want to miss that moment.
8. Enjoy your day – your photos depend on it.
Weddings are stressful, and probably just like other brides, you have planned for this occasion for many months . But when the day arrives, don’t sweat the details. Things will go wrong – they always do. Your task now is not to stress over minutiae, but to enjoy the day as it unfolds.
Be happy. Smile. Slow things down and enjoy all the moments. But mostly, enjoy the company of your new husband/wife. This is the first day of the rest of your life. Happiness = radiance = beautiful wedding photos.
We usually start with family and friends photos , following with bridal party and Bride & Groom Session. During the session I wish for you to be relaxed .We won't force you to do anything you do not want or does not feel OK for you. I will do my best to get great photos but I do remember that it is your day and must go the way you wish. If you need a little break or you have had enough please let me know. We do understand that Weddings are not about spending all day with your photographer but to be with your family and friends, so I always do my best to get all done asap and let you join your guests.
9.When will you get your Photos /Video ?
Your photos should be ready within 3 month (depending on season )
Couple of days after your wedding ( depending on season ) few photos might be ready and you will be able to view them in your private online Sneak Peek Gallery.
The link will be sent to your email or Facebook msg.
When all photos will be ready you will receive the link to your full online Wedding Photo Gallery.
Your gallery photos are in low res and size for website purpose , so not very good for print but good enough for social media sharing.
High Res printable digital version album you will receive on your USB (with your Video if the video is included in your Package).
10.How can you order your album ?
If you have Photo Book album in your package please do the selection of 60 images you want me to use to create the layout for your photo book album and for final print.
It is simple.
Every photo on your gallery or images on your USB has unique own code number.
Usually starts from letter S or E ...followed by numbers .
You might have one image edited in a few versions , so it is crucial to not skip any number or letter. This simply allows me to identify the image you have chosen . That is why it is so important.
As soon as I get the list from you, the layout will be created and sent for print to the Print Lab .
All your photos will be in chronological order, kind of your Big Day Story order.
It usually take approximately 30-40 days before your album arrives at your door.
Your full video along with your highlights video ( depending on your package) will be created and edited after the photos and will be available under the private link on my YouTube Channel.
Final version will be delivered on USB with your Photos via AnPost.

Looking forward to your Big Day...
