WHAT IS THE BEST WAY OF DISCUSSING OUR WEDDING PLANS WITH YOU?
Although it would be great to meet in person for a coffee to talk about your wedding plans, many times due to distance a face-to-face meeting is not possible; but don’t worry. You can have all your questions answered over phone, Skype or e mail. We can talk until we meet.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED OF?
We live in Heraklion, Crete, Greece and spending time in Santorini at summers. This allows us to very easily shoot weddings/Engagements sessions beyond the island of Crete in nearby islands like Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes, while having easy access to Athens allow us to cover everywhere in Greece.
DO YOU COVER DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Absolutely Yes! We love traveling. We cover weddings all over Greece as in many countries too. We love to hear about your wedding plans, so please email us for more information.
DO YOU OFFER PRE WEDDING - ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Pre wedding sessions are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and give us the opportunity to get to know each other. Many couples also use their images for “save the date” cards, wish books and more. We love shooting engagement sessions!
HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU TYPICALLY SHOOT AT THE WEDDING DAY?
Our goal is to catch all the important moments of your wedding. Quite simple we shooting all the time we are working. If you planning a big wedding a second photographer will be necessary, so the total amount of pictures will increase. But after all our purpose is quality, not the quantity.
DO YOU DELIVER HIGH-RESOLUTION DIGITAL IMAGES?
Normally we provide a selection between 500 to 800 images for full day coverage. Double that though, because each image provided in both high-resolution and a reduced one for social-media use! All these details are mentioned in the contract we sign.
WHO OWNS THE EVENTUAL IMAGES?
The photographer will always own the copyright of the images taken, however the client is licensed to reproduce and distribute to friends and family any digital files provided. Copyright details are also mentioned in the contract we sign.
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
Yes, we love the value of a printed album and we offer a variety of high-quality fine art albums. You can gain access to the album section under request.
CAN I ORDER AN ALBUM AFTER MY WEDDING?
Of cource. You can always purchase an album!
DO YOU DESIGN THE ALBUMS?
The way we shoot is 50% of our vision. The other 50% is to present your story the way we saw it. That makes 100% Yes! We are story-tellers; that’s what you pay for!
WE LOVE THE PORTRAIT PICTURES YOU MAKE! CAN WE ALSO HAVE PICTURES LIKE THAT?
Of course! We love to do editorial-style portrait images with our brides and grooms but keep in mind that we need minimum 2 to 3 hours to get the best results. In most cases, during the wedding day is impossible to have this amount of time. For this reason we include in most of our packages an option for a next day photo session!
WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
We are glad to hear that! Send us an email using the contact page and we will answer you within 48 hours.
