I get asked my fair share of questions, some more than others. Here is a list of the most frequently asked.
If you don’t see the answers you are looking for shoot me a message and I’d be happy to answer your questions.
How do you describe your style?
I shoot in a photojournalistic style and prefer candid photos to posed any day. I aim to capture emotion as it unfolds throughout the day, and will work with you to capture your natural interactions.
We’re not particularly Photogenic and are pretty Camera-shy ! are we doomed for Photo failure ?
Its certainly not unusual for you both to have never had professionally pictures taken together up until now. As most of my work is candid in nature, i get the best images when you are both relaxed and being yourselves. The Portrait part of the day is guided just enough to ensure you will look Amazeballs in your images.
Do you shoot alone or with a second shooter ?
It depends on the service you want to book but I for sure work with them. I have a small group of 3 photographers I use routinely. I love having them along, they give me freedom to capture moments I may have not been able to if it was just me. But i also shoot weddings by myself. This way I retain control on the creative direction of the images. I don’t feel another shooter is necessary unless you are anticipating having a larger wedding with +100 guests . A Second shooter is available has a Add on if you wish.
Do you work outside Portugal?
Yes, I also work outside of Portugal, I love to travel!
Where do you live?
I live between Lisbon and Algarve, in Portugal.
Do you also offer engagement sessions?
Yes, I offer engagement sessions. I highly recommend doing the engagement session, its the perfect way to get to know each others and breaking the ice. It is very important that we meet before the wedding, to create an empathy between us. On the day of the wedding I will know what to expect of you and I already know how to capture you in the best way possible. In addition the engagement session happens at a very beautiful time of your lives and that deserves to be photographed and remembered. These photographs may also be used in your honor book or in your invitation, for example.
How many photos do you deliver?
Normally between 800 to 1000 images for a full day.
Do you edit all the photos?
Yes, every image is fully edited by me.
When will we get our photos?
Full delivery will occur within 10 to 12 weeks in high season and 4 to 5 weeks on low season. You will have access to an online gallery (password protected) After the digital delivery you will get a leather envelope with few prints and USB with all the photos on High resolution.
How many hours are included in the packs?
My wedding pack includes 12-hour and 6-hour service. You can also request extra hours if you feel the need.
How do we book with you?
Before booking I recommend a meeting or Skype, to work out details and clarify other questions. Then to actually book the wedding date I require a deposit payment of 200€. The remaining balance is due to one week before the wedding.
