5. How does our work on the wedding day look like?
Our work during church wedding is quite similar to civil one. We can also start in hour place during the preparation, all depends on you. We always start with details, then go through the ceremony and finally at your wedding reception we are with you until the agreed time. We are working in reportage natural style. We try to be not visible on your wedding and not bother unnecessary anyone. We are not using flash light in the church to not disrupt the ceremony.
6. What time do we start work on the wedding day?
The time, at which we come to you and start working is dependent on your wedding plan. We usually come about one hour before the bride puts on her dress. We take photographs of details, such as invitations, wedding rings, wedding bouquet. Then there is some time to capture the last moments of getting ready, it is also a good opportunity for other family members to get used to our presence and feel more comfortable.
7. What is the difference between the session on a wedding day and the one arranged later, on an other day?
The second one takes more time. On the wedding day it takes no longer than half an hour, as it is your day which you'd like to spend with your family and friends. 30 minutes is enough as we both work on best photos for you.
8. How much time does the photoshoot take?
The time of every session can be different, as every couple has various plans, wishes and ideas. A photoshoot after wedding day is longer and may last from 2 up to 4 hours, depending on choice and the number of locations. This amount of time will allow us to work in peace and take the best possible shots without any time pressure.
9. You've made the decision. You'd like us to be your photographers on your wedding day. What's the next step?
We're pleased to be your choice on such an important day. The next step after you've decided to choose us is signing the contract. We also take deposit of 30% of the fixed amount. The rest of this sum is paid till the wedding day. All details related to the payment are enclosed to the contract. A few weeks before the wedding day we will contact you to get to know the schedule of the wedding if you would expect to have it. It will be helpful know it earlier to be properly prepared and make the most of every moment to capture as many good photos as possible.

Every single our contract has included Covid-19 insurance for your deposit. If your wedding will be moved to other date due to Covid-19 restrictions we will move the deposit for the new date and we will keep the same price of our service. If you have to cancel your wedding due to Covid-19 restrictions your deposit will be fully refunded.

When you are decided for our services, we meet to sign the contract or we will sign the contract online with electronic signature. We ask you for the required information and prepare the two copies.

We care about the direct contact with our clients because of the personal character of our services. We'd like to meet and get to know you before this important day, that is why we can't agree for the consultant to sign the contract on your behalf.
13. You're after the wedding/photoshoot. What's next?
That's a very good question. A few days after your wedding/photoshoot you get some sample photos. It's kind of foretaste of what you finally get. The whole material is ready two weeks after the wedding/photoshoot in the form of an online gallery. Sometimes it is possible to speak with us about shorter waiting time as all depends on the season.
14. How much time do you need for the photographs with your family members and friends on the wedding day?
