What to expect for Wedding Photography
From the bridal preparation to the cake, I'll catch spontaneous instants, the decoration and the action, in a photojournalistic way.
From our first contact to the delivery of your images, you will discover a unique experience of high quality service based on professionalism, trust & fun!
Your wedding day is about happiness, beauty & love connections. I definitely think that we need also to be connected before I photograph such a special day.
So our first meeting will take place as soon as you know the wedding venue and a time-scale for the various stages of the wedding. If you don’t live in Istanbul, we can use Skype.
Our second meeting will take place around two weeks before the wedding. We will review the order of proceedings to make sure that I will be in the right position to document all the special moments of a day you will want to remember for a lifetime.
I do ask for 30% of the global amount, as a non-refundable deposit. This deposit is the only way to book me as your wedding photographer. The date will be booked for your wedding day as soon as I receive this deposit. Messages or emails are not valid to book your wedding. Ideally, it will be done one or 2 weeks after our 1st meeting. The remaining balance will be paid on your wedding day.
During the wedding
Depending on the collection you choose, I will capture your wedding day during 6-7 hours up to 12 hours.
Here is an idea of what I photograph during the wedding day in a documentary style:
Preparation of the bride : make-up, hair, dress, shoes, rings…
Preparation of the groom : the suit, cufflinks…
The reception room & the wedding venue (decoration, details)
The photos of the newly-weds, family and friends (non-posed & posed), the welcome cocktail for the guests
The official ceremony & the signing of the official registers
Speeches & guests
Part of diner & party
If there is anything you absolutely want me to capture during your wedding day & be sure it’s , please let me know!
After the wedding, I save your images (and I keep the memory cards untouched until my job for you is done).
Then I edit them, making the best selection of images.
Then I process your images in the most natural way possible, which means I rework the original photo to create my artistic vision. I work in colors, contrast, re-framing and custom-made black & white versions.
I do not manipulate the images (I don’t make legs longer or noses shorter for example).
For the 6-7-hour collection, we can expect 400+ pictures.
For the 8-9-hour collection, we can expect 500+ pictures.
For the 12-hour collection, we can expect 600+ pictures.
When the images are ready, I create a beautiful online gallery & I send you a special message with the link to discover your images.
Thanks to that gallery, you’ll be able to:
- download the images in medium resolution
- share the link to the gallery to your family and friends
- select your favorite images
- order prints.
Then, I will send you the DVD with these same images in high resolution & gift prints if included in the package you chose.
If you’d like extra prints, larger framed images or photo albums, just let me know & I’ll give you a quotation.
