As a wedding photographer, I frequently receive questions from couples who want to ensure that they are getting the best possible service for their special day. I understand that every wedding is unique, and I welcome any and all questions from couples to ensure that I am providing them with the best possible service and that their wedding day is captured in the most beautiful and meaningful way possible. There are several important questions that wedding couples ask me before they book my services. Here are some of the most important ones:
The wedding is over: What happens next?
When the sun rises after your wedding day, and you wake up as (possibly hungover) newlyweds in your room along with an empty champagne bottle, a soiled wedding dress and an inexplicable hairdo, your wedding photos are already safely stored and multiple-back-upped on my computer and hard drives. After that, the fun starts. From the thousands of photos I’ve shot during your big day, I make a selection of the images that tell your story in the best possible. After that, I start with the most time-consuming part: The editing. cue dramatic sound effect.
The selected photos are corrected in terms of light, colour, contrast and other adjustments, making the best of every single one and making for an aesthetically consistent photo series.
How do you deliver photos?
After I finalized the editing, your photos will be uploaded onto a beautiful online photo gallery in which you can view, download, print and share the images. Because who uses USB flash drives nowadays, right?
Do you provide wedding albums and prints?
Of course I do! I provide amazing Folio albums and also for prints I’d be happy to provide you with high-quality physical versions of your favourite images that you can order directly from your gallery.
How many photos do you deliver per wedding?
It varies between 300 for a 5 hours wedding to 600 for a 10 hours wedding. Sometimes I go nut and deliver around 700-800 photos just because you had an awesome day!
How long it takes for us to have our wedding photos?
You will get all the edited photos within 6-9 weeks from your wedding date.
Do you have the copyright of our wedding photos? Are we going to have watermarked photos?
In short answer yes I do have the copyright of your wedding photos, but this is a bit confusing subject so let me explain a bit.
Copyright is the legal right to own something, specifically the originator. It gives the owner control over the way something is used or distributed. At the moment I take one photo, I own the right over that art material.
You as a client have usage rights which means you can print and share your gallery, and also display the photographs on your personal social media accounts, but you can’t sell your photos for any purpose or use it commercially on your own business or make changes on the photos.
And no you won’t get any watermarked photos
