The first 19 questions are related to wedding and engagement photography. The remaining ones contain issues connected with other kinds of photoshoots we make.
1. What is included in the price of wedding reportage?
The price covers services of two photographers on your wedding day, 10 hours of photographing, photoshoot during the wedding day, online gallery, image processing and selection.
2. What is the price of wedding photos and engagement sessions?
Current prices are to be found in the 'price list' tab.
3. If you'd like our reportage to be longer than 10 hours...
10 hours is our standard time on a wedding day. We know that from our experience, that in most cases there is enough time to capture your important day from every possible perspective. As we've said - in most cases, that is why if you have on mind something extraordinary or make special plans, some additional time may be necessary. Don't worry, we can always meet or talk on Skype and fix all details.
4. What about travel costs? Are they included?
First of all, it's not a problem for us to get to any part of the country. Travel costs to 200 km are included in the price of our services. If there is more than 200 km we add fuel costs to the whole price, which means that if we have to travel 400 km to you, the first 200 km are free and you pay only for the remaining 200 km. However, these are never big amounts of money, so don't be afraid.
5. How many photos will you finally get?
We can't tell you any certain number of photos you'll find in your wedding album after processing. It's dependent on the album's size you choose, there may be about 60-120 (wedding reportage) or 30-60 (wedding and engagement session) photos. Of course, we take great amount of photos on your wedding day and all of them which are not chosen to be in your album (usually about 500-600), are put in an online gallery. As soon as we finish working on processing the photos, you'll get those of high resolution on a memory storage. To sum up, it is not possible to tell you in advance how many images you'll get. To be honest, we always give to our customers more photos, than we expected, so you can keep calm and we'll cope with it.
6. How does our work on the wedding day look like?
Our work during church wedding is quite similar to civil one. We always start with details, then go to preparation, through the ceremony and finally at your wedding reception we are with you until midnight.
7. What time do we start work on the wedding day?
The time, at which we come to you and start working is dependent on your wedding plan. We usually come about one hour before the bride puts on her dress. We take photographs of details, such as invitations, wedding rings, wedding bouquet. Then there is some time to capture the last moments of getting ready, it is also a good opportunity for other family memers to get used to our presence and feel more comfortable.
8. What is the difference between the session on a wedding day and the one arranged later, on an other day?
The second one takes more time. On the wedding day it takes no longer than half an hour, as it is your day which you'd like to spend with your family and friends. 30 minutes is enough as we both work on best photos for you.
9. How much time does the photoshoot take?
The time of every session can be different, as every couple has various plans, wishes and ideas. A photosession after wedding day is longer and may last about 1,5 hour. We can work in peace and there is no need to hurry. If you'd like to see earlier what it looks like, we may meet on your engagement session, which usually takes about 1 hour.
10. Who chooses photographs to the album?
Employing us means entrusting to us all the issues related. We take photos with a view to your album and we know which pictures will complete the whole story as well as possible. Of course, when you get your online gallery and choose a few other photos which you'd like to put in your wedding album, you can always let us know.
11. How can you make use of your engagement photoshoow?
Engagement photoshoot is a great opportunity for you to make yourselves feel comfortable in front of the camera. What is more, you can use the photos to make your wedding reception more attractive. A great idea are albums which you can give to your parents as a symbol of gratitude. Those pictures can also be used in your wedding invitations or decorations. Engagement session is a bit shorter than a wedding one. Such album usually consists of 30 pictures.
12. You've made the decision. You'd like us to be your photographers on your wedding day. What's the next step?
We're pleased to be your choice on such an important day. The next step after you've decided to choose us is signing the contract. We also take deposit of 30% of the fixed amount. The rest of this sum is paid before the wedding day. All details connected with the payment such as bank account number etc. are enclosed to the contract. A few weeks before the wedding day we contact you to get to know the plan. We need to know it earlier to be properly prepared and make the most of every moment to capture as many interesting photos as possible.
13. The contract: wedding and engagement photoshoot.
When you are decided for our services, we sign the contract. We ask you for the required information and the contract is sent to you by post. One copy is for you and the second one you sign and send back to us. Then we ask you for the deposit and the second part of it is paid by the date fixed in the contract.
14. Do you have to be decided for particular albums before signing the contract?
We've reduced the options to the minimum. We offer two kinds of albums that differ in thickness and covers. The decision which one you choose you can made before the wedding or later. If you make the choice before the wedding, you can be certain that the price of the printing won't go up.
15. You've hired a wedding consultant. What about signing the contract with us?
We care about the direct contact with our clients because of the personal character of our services. We'd like to meet and get to know you before this important day, that is why we can't agree for the consultant to sign the contract on your behalf.
16. You're after the wedding/engagement session. What's next?
That's a very good question. A few days after your wedding/photoshoot you get some photos with music background. It's kind of foretaste of what you finally get. The whole material is ready two weeks after the wedding/photoshoot in the form of an album and online gallery. The next two weeks are for designing your album. Then comes printing, what takes about one week and finally after five weeks we send an album and high-resolution photos saved on a memory storage.
17. How much time do you need for the photographs with your family members and friends on the wedding day?
The formal photographs (with parents, grandparents, your best man, bridesmaid etc.) take no longer than 10-20 minutes. It depends on how many people there are. We need to know it before the wedding to find the best time for taking these photographs.
18. What about the privacy of your photos?
We show the photographs on our website. It is important for our clients to have the possibility of assessing our work. It also serves to promote our services and present our offer. However, if you'd like to remain anonymous, just tell us during our meeting and we'll respect your request.

The first 20-30 minutes are usually a warm up to gain more confidence in front of the lens.

Depending on the agreed rules of cooperation, one or two photographers work during the photoshoot.
