I am often asked questions about my prices, policies, albums, and other wedding coverage details. I’ve compiled the most frequently-asked questions. I hope you find these answers helpful. If you do not find the answer to your question feel free to contact me at any time.
The best way to find out whether you like it or not the photographer to see his picture. In my photo gallery you can see my photography style.
My goal – is to create a maximum of documentary photo essay about this momentous event for the new family shots.
To show the love between the bride and groom – the is a main task of the day.
What is your pricing?
Do you want to know the price of a photo service? I would love to be able to publish it on the page of my web site. But I do not. Why?
Because the price depends on many factors and can vary greatly. Price wedding photo session in Ottawa or Toronto will be higher than in Montreal. Number of guests at the wedding will also affect the price. And a lot of other things that simply do not have space to list. I want to give my customers the real cost of taking into account all factors. And of course I should take into account your wishes and possibilities. I always meet with my clients in order to discuss all the details and to determine the price for my photo service. So contact me and I’ll meet you ASAP at a convenient time for you. I hope that we can always find the best option in order to work together!
Whether all the photos retouched and processed?
Of course yes! Each image will be processed. This process involves croping, color correction and retouching. I do not use automated batch processing. With each photo I work individually.
Do you provide video services?
No, I don’t.
Do you have customers to whom we can contactfor reference?
I do not use this method. There are several reasons.
Firstly, I have great respect for my clients and do not want several times a day they received phone calls potential customers for reference.
Secondly, you have no guarantee that I gave you phone number or email the actual customers. It may be a trick? Think about that.
And thirdly, as I mentioned earlier, the best reference is my real photos. Open my gallery and make your decision. Or do you like my work or you’ll look for another photographer. It is the best way I can recommend you.
After what period of time we can see our photos
Usually I do my job quickly and efficiently. Online galleries are posted within 4-6 days of the wedding date.
After you select the photos for the editing I would take 2-4 weeks (depending on the number of pictures) to complete the job and you will have ready-to-print high resolution photo files in JPEG format
How many pictures will we receive?
I can say so – as much as possible. Number of pictures is highly dependent on many factors – the number of guests, duration of event etc. From my experience, this number may be from 400 to 800. The exact figures are impossible, since each event is very individual.
May I have the raw, unedited files?
No, because the RAW format files not available for viewing.
All images very carefully selected for editing and final delivery. You have to trust the experience and taste of the photographer
whom work with.
What is the “online gallery”?
The online gallery is a private, password protected section on my website where all of your wedding photographs will be placed online for you and your family and friends to view.
You will receive the password to anyone who you want to be able to view the images.
How about engagement sessions?
Engagement photo session is not included in the price of the wedding photo session. But if you are ordering the engagement and wedding photo session in one package you get a discount of 25%.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use top of the line professional Nikon D700 and Nikon D750 DSLR cameras. I use various lenses
such us Nikon 50mm/1.8, Nikon 70-200mm/2.8, Nikon 17-35mm/2.8, Tamron 24-70mm/2.8
How long you’ve been in business?
I’ve been in business since early 80’s.
I began my career as a newspaper photo reporter. Later I worked in various advertising studios. The last 15 years I have been a freelance photographer.
What is your payment schedule?
A booking fee is 25% to reserve your date.
The final balance you have to pay before I start to shoot your event.
If you have a financial difficulties, just let me know and we will
(for sure) solve any problems.
If I will cancel my wedding, is the booking fee refundable?
No. The booking fee are non-refundable. This point is stipulated in the contract of my photo service that we should sign.
What other types of photographs you do for your customers?
I carry out orders in a variety of types of photography. My favorite genre – wedding and a photo portrait. Quite often I serve engagement, family events such as the child’s baptism, birthdays, food and interior photography. With great pleasure to meet new people and do everything possible to make my customers happy with my photos.
