FAQs

How many photos can we expect from our wedding day?

While it's challenging to specify an exact number, on average, Grand Gala wedding yields around 1,800 photos, intimate weddings yield around 1,000 photos, and elopements approximately 600. This is based on our typical rate of capturing about 300 photos per hour of coverage. However, this number can fluctuate depending on the day's events and conditions. Our utmost priority is delivering top-notch images that meet our high standards, so we focus on providing you with the very best shots from your day. Always remember, our emphasis lies in ensuring quality over sheer quantity.

Can we hire you just for wedding film?

While we typically offer wedding films as an add-on to our photography packages, we understand every wedding is unique. We usually prefer to provide both services for the best experience, but we're open to discussions. If our visions align and the vibe feels right, we might be able to tailor something special for you. Let's connect and chat further!

Do you offer both color and black & white photos?

Absolutely! The artistry of photography lies not just in capturing a moment but in presenting it in a way that evokes emotion. We edit and color grade photos based on the unique vibe and essence of each couple and their chosen setting. As an artist, I deeply believe in the power of color grading to enhance the story behind every image. An outdoor wedding, for instance, may exude a different ambiance compared to a ceremony in a venue with contemporary architecture. Whether it's a vibrant color palette or a classic black & white, our goal is to bring out the best in every moment, aligned with the overall feel and emotion of your special day.

How do you handle couples who feel awkward in front of the camera?

It's not uncommon for couples to feel this way, but here's our perspective: the best photos emerge when everyone is comfortable with one another. That's why we place significant emphasis on getting to know you better. We meet several times before the wedding to build rapport and understand your comfort levels. Moreover, our complimentary engagement session is designed precisely to alleviate such concerns. It provides an opportunity to experience being in front of the camera in a relaxed setting, helping dispel any anxieties. Our guiding principle is that photographs aren't about picture-perfect poses, but genuine emotions and the unique connection between you two. By the time your wedding day arrives, you'll feel more at ease, ensuring that the photos captured are authentically you.
