1.Whats your experience as wedding photographer? How many weddings do you have in your portfolio?
I have been shooting weddings since 2004, mostly in Stockholm but also quite a few destinations weddings. I shoot 12-14 weddings per year but some years ago there were in the 20-25 range per year. Family life and my teenage boys needs some time with me during the weekend and I rather shoot few and well selected rather than many. In total I have photographed over 250+ weddings
2. How would you describe your photography style?
I do both photojournalistic as well as guided posing to create the right atmosphere for strong impact images. Photography is a vast field and there are many different types of photography styles. Wedding photography in particular has developed into a more photojournalistic style where the photographer documents the events of the day without a lot of posing. But I do guide my couples to feel comfortable in directing and posing some of the shots and make sure that everything feels natural and looks authentic. Have a look at the portfolio, you will get the same style at your wedding when hiring me
3.Do you bring your own lighting equipment?
I shoot with prime high quality lenses with the newest set of cameras (Canon fullframe DSLRs) allowing low light situations without additional light. But I do bring along lightning equipment that is not bulky or obtrusive in the case I would need to kick in additional light for some special effects or simply add light because in darn black dark!
4.What type of equipment do you use? Do you shoot with digital, film or both?
I use state of the art top class professional-quality equipment and I have spare/backup cameras and lenses in case something happens to the primary ones. The overall quality of digital photos versus film photos is very similar and there is no need to worry that digital pictures won’t be as good as film. They are in many cases superior, I shoot with digital DSLR (Canon fullframes) at highest resolution and apply emulated film looks in the postprocess to all images that will be delivered to you
5.Will you retouch photos? If so, how many?
In all the delivered photographs in the packages I have manually reviewed and enhanced every image to looks its best. Task such cropping for best photographic composition, adjusting the colors and sharpening the images when needed, all this is included in the standard package. I also offer more advanced retouching services if you would specifically need a change or more sophisticated enhancements. However, this is a very time-consuming process and in the end, it may not be worth the extra cost that it may be.
6.Do you have a list of references?
You make look at some references and if you need I can provide you with al list from former clients what they thought of the professionalism, photo quality, personality and deliverables received
7.What will you wear as a Photographer?
Mostly I will dress up with a white shirt and wear a jacket and look proper and representative, just like all other guests is at their finest I will reflect that as well. Should you have any wished to match your clothing style just let me know and I will adapt to your preferred style
8.How many pictures will you take, and when will I receive them? Will they be negatives, CD or online only?
In the pricing section, you can see the range of who you can expect to get from each package. They will be delivered through an USB file and I store the photographs for one year so make sure you take several backups! You will also get a digital gallery that will be hosted on my site for three months. Guests would be able to download low. Resolution files if given the login credentials by you. Otherwise they can ask you for the high-resolution files when you get them. To a surcharge I can maintain an entire high resolution download area for as long time as you prefer, this is an additional option to the standard package
9.How much does it cost and what exactly is included? What about overtime?
all prices are outlined in the pricelist including VAT ( moms) Extra charge for transport/parking may apply but these will be communicated and you have to accept to the extra cost. Overtime charges is 1250:- Sek/hour in the cases we need more time that the package withholds
10.Do you have backup photographers who will shoot the wedding if you get sick?
Should it ever occur I have direct access to a network consisting of several well reputated wedding photographers and will pass over the assignment to someone in the same price range and picture style
11.Will I be able to choose some poses and shots, or will you be guiding all the poses?
I will at some cases direct and posed family/group, with the bridal party, specific detail photos, etc. If you and your partner would like specific poses, locations and shots, make sure to tell me about those in advance so I can prepare, I love when you have your own ideas and will do my best to fulfil your needs
12.When will I receive a written contract? What is your refund/cancellation policy?
Although this is your special wonderful day, your relationship with me as your photographer is still a business one. A written contract will outline all of the expectations for both you and me and will help prevent any nasty surprises on the actual day. Once you have decided to book a non-refundable fee apply on 1500 Sek which is deducted from the final amount. The transaction follow the principle that 50% will be including the booking fee the week before the wedding date and the last 50% when you will receive the postprocessed images when published on the private gallery approximately but no later than 10 days after your wedding. You will the sign-off the delivery and pay the outstanding 50%
13.What is the difference between a photo book and a wedding album?
Photo books and photo albums essentially both achieve the same purpose – they display your favorite moments from your wedding in a beautiful book format. However, the difference between the two can be instantly felt in terms of quality and durability. A photo book is printed on regular, double-sided paper similar to a business brochure and there are a variety of options for covers and pages. A photo album is printed by a photographic process onto professional photo paper and is generally flush mount, which means that each page is printed as a single photo and then mounted onto a thick, durable cardstock that does not fold. Photo albums also have the option for different covers and pages. I use as a professional wedding photographers a flush mount wedding albums and I have selected the Portuguese high quality firm http://www.floricolor.pt/ as the vendor of choice. I can design the wedding album for you as an additional option to the standard package. I have chosen not to include these albums since they are very pricey at the production stage, they are handcrafted, custom built. It may not be something you would like to pay for in a Standard package. Learn more about the differences between photo books and photo albums.
