The first 16 questions are related to wedding and engagement photography. The remaining ones contain issues connected with other kinds of photoshoots we make.
1. What is included in the price of wedding reportage?
The price covers services of a photographer and assistant or two photographers on your wedding day, from 6 to 12 hours of photographing, depending on the chosen package, short photoshoot during the wedding day, online access to the photographs, image processing and selection.
2. What is the price of wedding photos and engagement sessions?
Current prices are to be found in the 'price list' tab.
3. What about transport costs? Are they included?
For weddings in Malta there are no extra costs of transport. For weddings in Gozo there is an extra fee of 50 euros.
4. How many photos will you finally get?
The number of photographs you will receive is dependent on the size of the package you choose. Taking a look at our packages, you can see that the photos from a wedding range from 300 to 600 while in case of a photoshoot you will receive between 20 and 50 ready, processed pictures.
5. How does our work on the wedding day look like?
Our work during church wedding is quite similar to civil one. We always start with details, then go to preparation, through the ceremony and finally at your wedding reception we are with you until the agreed time.
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 photosession 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. Who chooses photographs to the album/photobook?
Employing us means entrusting to us all the issues related. We take photos with a view to your album and we know which pictures will complete the whole story as well as possible. Of course, when you get your online gallery and choose a few other photos which you'd like to put in your wedding album, you can always let us know.
10. 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 before 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 plan. We need to know it earlier to be properly prepared and make the most of every moment to capture as many good photos as possible.
11. The contract.
When you are decided for our services, we meet to sign the contract. We ask you for the required information and prepare the two copies. One copy is for you and the other one for us. Then we ask you for the deposit, the other part of the total amount is paid by the date fixed in the contract, usually shortly before the wedding.
12. You've hired a wedding consultant. What about signing the contract with us?
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 and also on a pendrive.
14. How much time do you need for the photographs with your family members and friends on the wedding day?
The formal photographs (with parents, grandparents, your best man, bridesmaid etc.) take no longer than 10-20 minutes. It depends on how many people there are. We need to know it before the wedding to find the best time for taking these photographs.
15. What about the privacy of your photos?
We publish the photographs on our website. It is important for our clients to have the possibility of seeing the photographs we make as it was important also for you. In addition it serves to promote our services and present our offer. However, if you'd like your photographs to remain just for you, do not hesitate to tell us during our meeting and we'll respect your request.
16. Can I receive RAW files?
We do not share the RAW files with our clients, as they are not ready photographs. The post processing is a big part of our work and creates our style which is presented in the portfolio and accepted by the client at the moment of booking our services.
17. International wedding.
If you organise an international wedding and look for photographers, who are able to communicate and do the photoshoot in other languages, contact us. We speak English, German and Polish.
18. Do I have to be over 18 to have my photoshoot done?
You don't have to be adult, but you have to be at least 15 years old to take part in the photoshoot on your own. In case you are under 18 we also require that you have your legal guardian's written consent.
19. Who is responsible for ensuring a makeup artist for the photoshoot?
This question refers mainly to TFP photoshoots. In this case we usually cooperate with MUAs, recommended either from our or the model's side. In case of other photoshoots (wedding, engagement, family, etc.) we don't ensure the professional make up artists, but we can help and recommend the ones we were happy to cooperate with.
20. Who is responsible for outfits for the photoshoot?
This is also a question related to a TFP shooting. Unless stated otherwise (or TFP including a stylist), this is the model who is responsible for the outfits.

If you have an interesting idea, and are an experienced model/make up artist/stylist, we can arrange a TFP photoshoot.
24. What does the photoshoot look like and how long it lasts?
If we have fixed all the details and have signed the contract, we can meet and work together. The preparations before the photoshoot (makeup, outfit, lighting) can take about an hour, however if the makeup is more demanding, it can last a bit longer. The first 20-30 minutes are usually a warm up to gain more confidence in front of the lens. The remaining time depends on the kind of the photoshoot, the amount of photos we agreed to made, the amount of outfits and ideas. Depending on the agreed rules of cooperation, one or two photographers work during the photoshoot.
25. How long do I have to wait for the photographs?
This time is always set individually. It depends on the kind of a photoshoot and the amount of photos. Usually it takes no more than two weeks.
26. In what form do you give the photographs back?
According to our customer's preferences we can put the photos on a CD, pendrive or other external memory device. We always present them in the form of Google Drive gallery and give you access to it.
27. How many photographs will I get?
The amount of photographs is always fixed individually before a photoshoot. If there are more good photos made, you also get them.
28. Are all photographs published on your website or fanpage?
We usually publish some photos on our fanpage or add them to our portfolio. That's the way people can see what we do and probably also the reason you decided to choose us. However, if you don't agree for publishing some photos, we can discuss it, so that you are comfortable with what is published.
29. Can anyone have a photoshoot?
Of couse, everyone can contact us and we'll talk about what he/she expects. We photograph not only models and wedding couples, but also all people who wish to have a photoshoot.

We love working with animals and have a lot of family photosessions. The prices can be found in the 'price list' section or are fixed individually according to our customers' needs and preferences.
32. I'd like to have a photoshoot but don't have any idea for it - is there a chance to meet you and come up with something interesting together?
As we've already said, we help you from the very beginning to the end of the photoshoot and also a long time before if you wish. We have lots of our own ideas, just let us know and we'll do our best for you to be satisfied.
33. How should I prepare myself for a photoshoot?
If you have a photoshoot with make up artist, come without any makeup, with your hair washed. Take the clothes or other things we were talking about. Take care of your nails and be well rested. That's all we require.
