A few info you might find useful
What is your style?
This, of course, is the most important question as my style will give an imprint to the pictures of your wedding. It isn't easy for me to define my style but let's say that I am a reportage photographer and make stories for magazines. This is how I take pictures: spontaneous, natural and generally not posed. When you will receive the pictures you will re-live the wedding day , from beginning to end. I will take your portrait and the family portrait as I know you want to remember your day with your relatives but I will spend most of the time moving around, unnoticed, looking for gestures, for images that can tell your story. If you have specific needs, during the day, you can call me at any time and I will be there to take the photographs you want.
How many photographs will you give us?
Depending on the package you choose you will receive from 120 to 400 professionally retouched images in high resolution and ready for printing. My retouching isn't strong, I do the same corrections that would have been done a few years ago in the darkroom. I do not soften skin and remove things or people from the images.
How and when will we receive the photos?
I will send you the retouched images ready for printing through a gallery I will put online for you from which you can download (using a password) or share the images. If you want you can send the gallery to your family and friends and they will also be able to download the photos using the pin. If you don't have a professional lab you can have your prints made from mine, which is based in the UK. In order to do so you just need to click on the basket on the top of the print you like and choose the kind of paper, the size and eventually the frame. As retouching in a proper way takes long time and you will receive at least 120 fine art prints I will send you the final images within 60 days from the wedding. I might find the time to retouch them earlier but I can't guarantee beforehand.
What is the cost for the photography of the wedding?
It really depends on the package you choose, please send me an email and I will send you all the options.
Can you make portraits of our guests?
Yes, I can provide a small portrait studio on location. This could be nice to entertain the guests for half an hour, taking a portrait of each of them in a fun way. After the wedding you can send each of them the portrait taken during your wedding. I use three studio flashes which I set up beforehand so that they will be ready once we get on location.
Where are you based?
I am based in Montepulciano, Tuscany, but this doesn't limit my area of action. I would be very happy to move out of my area or even abroad to photograph your wedding.
How can I book and how long can you hold my date?
You can contact me either by phone or email. We can arrange a Skype talk to get to know each other and, if possible, at a later stage it would be great also to meet you in person. Regarding the reservation, from April to November I can hold you a date for about a week, as this is the busiest time of the year. In the winter I can hold it longer. Once you you have decided you wish to have me as your photographer we will sign an agreement and the date will be locked after the payment of a deposit.
How and when will I pay you?
The deposit can be paid either throug PayPal or bank transfer in order to lock the date. The balance will be paid on the wedding day by cash or credit card (not American Express) or a few days before through PayPal. For all payments above 500€ made by PayPal or credit card there is an additional fee of 5%.
Feel free to contact me at any time and I will reply at the soonest.
