FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
My photography style of shooting is highly influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. I love using creative lighting, unique perspectives, angles, composition and artistic post-production refining to bring out our clients personalities and beauty while telling their wedding story. I pride myself on not just being photographer, but rather an artist creating unique and expressive imagery. To see examples of my work quality and style, please check my porfolio as well as my blog.
CAN I SEE YOUR PREVIOUS FULL EVENT PHOTOS FROM START TO FINISH?
Absolutely! I am proud to show you the consistency of my work. I understand all photographers post their best shots from each wedding on their websites so it's hard to determine how well he or she performs on the wedding day. That is why I highly recomend that all of our potential clients to view full events from all photographers they meet with to see how well the photographer performs throughout the day.
DO YOU EDIT OF ALL OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
Yes, I do. Every single image that you receive has been hand-edited personally by me. Some pictures that I really love are edited and commodefied many times until I am satified with the final product.
HOW MANY PICTURES WILL WE RECEIVE?
The number of pictures depends in many factors: the number of guests, hours of coverage, type of wedding or event, hours of dancing and so forth. My average for an 8 hours wedding is 800 pictures but this number may vary depending on the day itself.
