QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What's it like shooting with you?
I am trying my best to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I know that this is not a situation you are in daily and that it can feel awkward. I want to keep things casual, make jokes and have a great time with you. Trust me, even when my suggestions and ideas sound a little whacky or weird – I promise, you will love the result as I always want to make you look as good and happy as possible in your images! I encourage you to let your guard down and just be yourselves!
Where are you based? Will you travel?
I am based in Zurich, Switzerland but I absolutely love to travel and cover weddings in all of Europe (and overseas!) and will cover your wedding wherever you want to take me! Travel costs all over Switzerland are included, travel fees for other destination apply.
What can we expect to pay?
Prices start at CHF 650 for civil marriages (up to 2 hours coverage, only digitals) and CHF 2’750 for an 8-hour coverage .
Of course, you can add hours, an engagement or after wedding session or a bridal boudoir session as well as a high-end album to that. Since I think it’s important that you get a perfect package for you, please let me know what you would like to have included, and I’ll send you a customized offer.
How would you describe your style?
I am mostly a documentary wedding photographer, meaning I usually capture what unfolds organically during your wedding day and tell your story as it happens. I also love taking beautiful portraits of the bride and groom while getting ready and the couple photos which require a little more direction. However, I feel it’s essential that the images are still authentic, real, mostly unposed and natural! I will pose you during family formals but let you be your beautiful selves during the rest of the day!
Do you offer custom packages?
Of course! I love people who know what they want and have a special day planned for themselves and their loved ones. Please let me know what exactly you want to include in your package (hours, album, additional sessions etc.), and you will receive a detailed and personalized offer!
How many photos do you deliver?
Of course, this depends on your desired package. I usually deliver approximately 500 images for an 8-hour coverage and up to 900 images for a 12-hour coverage. This amount can vary due to every wedding day being unique. For couple sessions, I usually deliver ca. 65 images.
Can we get to know you before booking?
Absolutely! Since I genuinely believe that good chemistry is one of the most 8-hour factors in getting great wedding images, I love to meet you before your wedding! We can talk about all your ideas for your big day, go over your timeline, you can have a look at and feel of the albums and of course, most importantly, we can see if we are a good fit! If you don’t live in the area, we can also Skype or FaceTime!
What's your turnaround time?
Taking care of your images after the big day is as much a part of my style as is shooting and I want to make sure that all your pictures are carefully edited to complete my vision fully. Couple sessions (engagement and after wedding sessions included) are two week turnaround time, weddings six weeks.
How do we book you?
You can email me via email@example.com, or you can fill out the form on the CONTACT page (I appreciate all the extra info!!). It only takes a minute to complete it. I work on a first come, first served basis. To reserve your wedding date, I require a retainer fee and a signed agreement, which we will discuss in detail at the in-person meeting.
Will you post our images online? Can we opt out?
Yes, and yes. I proudly tell the stories of the people who I get to capture on such an important day and love being able to bridge the gap of those who celebrated and cried with you, but also those who couldn’t be there in person. Also, this is how my business continues to grow, and more and more people see what we create together. So, I am incredibly grateful in case you allow me to use your photos to show future couples how I work.
Will you cry at our wedding?
Probably yes. If you have personal vows – definitely yes!
