Were all the images on your website taken at real weddings?

Yes, all the photographs on my site are real and were taken at weddings I have worked at.

 

 

How much do your wedding photography packages cost?

You can find all the prices for my wedding photo packages, pre and/or post-wedding sessions and albums in the “Prices” section.

 

 

How can we book your services?

As I can only be in one place at a time and I cover a limited number of weddings to ensure the very best quality of work, I am forced to operate on a first come, first served basis. I require a 200€ deposit and a completed booking form to secure my services, after confirming I am available on the proposed date.

 

Will we be able to meet you before we book?

Of course, I will be happy to receive you at my studio to enable me to show you a sample album and provide you with some more information, or we can communicate by telephone or internet if you are further afield.

 

 

Where are you based? How far will you travel?

I live in Seville, Spain. I have photographed weddings in different Spanish cities and as well as some in other European countries. While local travel is included in the basic wedding photography package price, the cost of travel, flights, accommodation, etc has to be added on to the final invoice in the case of more distant weddings or destination weddings. You don’t need to worry about my travel arrangements, I organize these myself.

 

 

How long will you spend photographing our wedding?

To enable me to provide a full story of your wedding for posterity, I aim to begin photographing as you prepare for the day and remain present until I have sufficient material to document the couples’ first dance and the general atmosphere. My discrete methods and way of blending in with the wedding party avoid couples feeling their ceremony and celebrations are invaded by cameras and also allows me to capture spontaneous moments which would otherwise be impossible.

 

 

Do you work alone?

I will attend your wedding personally and alone, unless extreme and unavoidable circumstances make it impossible for me to attend, in which case I will be replaced by another reliable, professional photographer with a similar style to my own.

 

 

How many pictures will be included in our wedding package?

The exact number of images can vary depending on a range of factors, but your wedding photography package will include a minimum of 800 photographs presented in two formats - black and white and color - so at least 1,600 altogether.

 

 

Will we sign a contract?

Yes, the contract is very important for both of us. It clearly establishes and guarantees the services I will provide and the conditions we agree upon.

 

 

Do we get to see the discarded images?

No images are discarded without good reason (for example, somebody walked in front of the lens, the flash failed to fire or eyes were closed). All good photographs will be included in your gallery, however, those not good enough for use will not be archived in any format or available for viewing.

 

 

Will all our photographs be edited?

All the images included in your wedding photography package gallery will have been hand-edited individually. The editing required will vary but all photographs are checked for color, contrast, white balance, exposure, composition and basic sharpening.

 

 

Do you give us the raw files?

No, I do not deliver or sell the raw, unedited files. The images are selected and edited to a high standard and the raw materials are not conserved. 

 

 

How long will it take for our wedding photographs to be ready?

You will receive your gallery by WeTransfer or similar within 20 days of the wedding. 

 

 

Does the package include a wedding album?

The basic wedding photography package includes a private gallery of high resolution, watermark-free digital images, a video slide summary and 30 A4-sized photographs printed on professional photographic paper and presented in a wooden box.

Wedding albums can be provided as an optional extra, please see the price page for further details.

 

 

What equipment do you use?

While not carrying enough paraphernalia to get in the way during your special day, you can be sure I will bring all the professional equipment I require. 

 

 

Would you be able to create something different to your usual work or what we have seen in your portfolio?

I will be happy to discuss your requirements and whether I can work with you to create what you are looking for.

 

 

Are you on social media?

Yes, I am, please see the links on my homepage.
