Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
We have a simple style: while being very discreet we take care to document all the moments of your special day most of all in a documentary and artistic way. We use the natural light to emphasize our subjects and to give you a real story of your day. Our photographs and films need to be a sensation.
WHAT PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?
Please send us an email and we will share the packages we offer. We are available to create a customized package that suits your needs. We can provide 5/8/10/12 hours coverage, depending on the date (week ends or week days) and on the season.
DO YOU ALWAYS WORK TOGETHER? CAN WE BOOK JUST ONE PHOTOGRAPHER?
We don’t have any problem to work as a solo photographer and we can also offer a package with just one photographer but we suggest you to consider the benefits you would have with two photographers: a double perspective, a male and female point of view, different sensibilities, the possibility to split us up during the getting ready shots etc.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TRAVEL FOR YOUR WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! We are based in Italy, in the Milan area but we are used to travel all over Italy for our weddings, and abroad. We love that! We may charge travel and reasonable accommodation costs, contact us for a quote.
DO YOU ALSO PHOTOGRAPH AND VIDEOTAPE ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS, ELOPEMENTS, INTIMATE WEDDINGS OR FAMILY PORTRAITS?
Yes we do. We can shoot engagement sessions a few months or just a few days before the wedding (even the day before) and also in different locations. We love intimate weddings and also elopements, we are also fond of family portraits, on holiday or during their daily life. Actually, we can shoot all kind of stories.
HOW MANY EDITED PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER?
We provide edited, high-resolution digital jpg files. For a full day coverage, a wedding day, we typically deliver 500 edited photos. For shorter sessions, like engagements, about 70/100 edited photos. These numbers may increase depending on the flow of the day, of the locations etc.
DO WE HAVE THE COPYRIGHT OF THE IMAGES AND THE VIDEO?
We will always own the copyright because we are the creator of those images and videos but you will be allowed to make unlimited personal reproductions and copies for your friends and family. You will also be free to print your photos by yourself.
HOW DO WE GET OUR PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO?
You will have an online personal gallery, protected with a password, to view and download the edited photos. You can also share that gallery with family and friends and they will also be able to download the photos for free.
We deliver the video with a WeTransfer file.
HOW LONG BEFORE YOU DELIVER THE EDITED PHOTOS AND VIDEO?
We usually deliver wedding photos within 100 days after the wedding. About 30 days for shorter sessions. The editing can be faster, depending on the period of the year, if we are very busy with the shootings or not. If you have particular requests about this, we can discuss a rush edit fee.
Wedding video is delivered by 120 days form the wedding.
We deliver the video with a WeTransfer file.
DO YOU PROVIDE WEDDING ALBUMS?
Yes, we provide different types of album. We create a first layout of the album, we share it with you, you tell us if there is something you would like to change and that’s it, we print it.
DO YOU ALSO SHOOT FILM PHOTOGRAPHS?
No, we don’t. We did in the past but we have now focused on a personal artistic style and we feel that digital photography perfectly suits our projects. We could suggest a great photographer who could come at the wedding to make a parallel film service, and this would be a very interesting work.
DO YOU TAKE FORMAL FAMILY PHOTOS?
Yes, absolutely. We understand the importance of family portraits and the value they have for all families involved in a wedding. You can’t see many of these photos on our website because we prefer to focus on the beauty of the documentary, fine art photography but we take care of every aspect of your wedding day.
DO YOU TAKE POSED PICTURES?
We believe that there is a natural, romantic and intimate way to stay together for each bride and groom. And that is an added value to our work. So, we prefer not to ask particular poses to our couples but during our couple sessions we just suggest them where to stay (because of the light and the background) and we leave them free to enjoy the moment. There are always spontaneous romantic moments… That’s all we need! For a couple session during the wedding day we need about 30 minutes, even less if necessary.
DO YOU DOCUMENT WEDDING DECORATIONS AS WELL?
Yes, we do. Ceremony settings, flowers, table decorations…
HOW WILL WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING OR PORTRAIT DATE?
To reserve a date we ask you to fill and sign a contract with all the conditions we agreed via email. We also ask to pay a deposit via bank transfer or PayPal.
WE LIVE FAR FROM YOU, HOW CAN WE MANAGE OUR CONSULTATIONS?
Our couples are mainly from abroad so we often meet them for the first time on the wedding day. We can arrange everything via email, with a Skype call, or via phone if you prefer! And if we arrange an engagement session before the wedding, that will be a great occasion to get to know a bit more about you!
