Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
1. I do not know nothing about photography, how to choose right photographer for my wedding?
You have found a photographer, you have seen his photos on a website or on a wedding show, and you are happy. Don’t forget, it was selection of photos, probably the best photos. I would recommend to arrange a meeting with a photographer, to talk with him about work, and view full wedding gallery to check his consistency, and discover his personality.
2. How far in advance should I book my wedding photographer?
As soon as it possible. I would like to photograph all weddings which I was asked for… Sometimes you ask me how long I can wait for your decision? My answer is not to long, if another person ask me for the same date, and confirm booking me as a wedding photographer I will go with them.
3. How can we book you?
This is very common question. I would suggest to go to my website, fill the contact form, and wait for reply with my availability. Then I will be more than happy if we can arrange a meeting, where we can talk about your needs, where I can show you what I do, and present all things included in my premium packages. In my opinion it is very important to meet before you will make any decision.
4. How and when can we pay you?
I accapt two methods – cash or bank transfer. During a booking process I will ask you to pay deposit, rest of the amount should be paid up yo your wedding day.
5. Do you need food?
Yes, I need. I will be with you for all day, sometimes less, and I will need a lot of energy but if you can not provide me a meal do not worry. Please inform me about that before the wedding day.
6. I don’t like my photos!
I don’t like too… Don’t worry, we are not professional models, we do not know how to pose etc… I always keep my photo sessions comfortable for you. It will be more “walk in a park” than proper photo session. From time to time I will ask you to stand somewhere, and look in my direction but most of our photo session will be natural and easy for you. I will tell you more on our meeting.
7. What if something happen to you before our wedding?
In summer 2016 I broke my ankle on a wedding, I don’t know how but I finished the wedding. Few days later I had another wedding. I informed my clients about the problem and attended the wedding… in orthopedic boot, and plenty of pain killers in my pocket.
In situation when I really can not attend the wedding I will try to find competitive replacement. If you won’t be happy I will return your deposit back.
