We create a wedding preview on social network just with your approval.
WHO WILL BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF MY WEDDING?
We do not love to let you risk ending up with a photographer you won’t be happy with. Even if we all embrace wedding reportage style every one has his own personality, technique, way to observe . That’s why from the beginning you will know which photographer will come to your wedding, barring serious unforeseen events. In this extremely rare cases (It has never happened) we always guarantee to replace the photographer with another one with the same professional skills.
DO YOU NEED A TIMESCHEDULE OF THE DAY?
Yes, a timeschedule would be welcome! We have a photojournalist style and we do not need a shot list (except for family and friends groups) but if you have special requests please, let us know in advance. You could also have a look to all the shots we take during a marriage on our Real Wedding page. As you will see we never missthe most iconic moment of your day.WILL YOU GIVE US ALL THE UNSELECTED IMAGES?
We do not use to do it. We do not love to enclose your best day in a strict number so we’ll give you our best selection. The unsorted images are often “nothing special”, technically bad or part of a series of which we have chosen the best one.
HOW MANY PICTURES ARE INCLUDED IN THE PHOTO SERVICE?
It depends on the package you choose. During a traditional wedding (9/10 hours of coverage) we will give you our best selection that usually amount at 500/1000 images.WHEN THE PICTURES WILL BE AVAILABLE?
That’s the most frequent question! If the period is not the busiest one (March/April/October/December) the low resolution pictures are usually available 20 days after the wedding ; if we are in the full working season we kindly ask you to wait no more that one month to receive it. If you do not have wedding album we will send you the download link for the high resolution files few days after you received the proofs. The time of the wedding album depends mostly on you. You need to do the first selection, we will do together the final one, we will prepare pictures for the print process and you will receive a web preview that you could confirm or ask us to modify. Once you confirm the print lab takes three weeks before sending us the wedding book.WHAT’S A WEB GALLERY?
A web gallery is a private online space protected by password, where you could visualize all the proofs. From Here you could also download the high resolution files, choose the images for your wedding book and share them with your family or worldwide friends giving link and password. Above all that for us it is a further online backup that is always useful if something breaks or does not work.
WHO WILL CHOOSE THE IMAGES OF MY WEDDING BOOK?
A wedding album could contain almost 110 images. Once you have seen all the proofs on the private web gallery we will select together the pictures that will be part of the book. We will have an extra care during the editing process of the printable pictures. It will be our task to design the layout and if you like it we’ll confirm the order. In about three weeks you will have the product.
DO WE NEED TO PAY THE RETAINER?
Yes, we usually ask to pay the 30% of the whole quote to save the date when you will sign the contract.
