Services

How are we going to work together through that photo session?

I use different steps and they can be defined as the following:
Initial contact by phone, email or Facebook.
Discussion and research about the desired photo session, including subjects, locations, and pricing, etc.
The photo session itself, and payment is due. I am looking at the results and not at my watch, also I will show you the pictures as we take them. 
Photo editing, every good picture is fully edited. For example, on portraits,  I removed the blemishes on the skin but your skin will still look natural.
Review of the photographs by you and finals edit are being done.
Delivery of the digital pictures without any watermarks via Dropbox.

How many change of clothe?

It does not really matter but in order to make the photo session easier to manage, the limit would be 5.
If you desire more, feel free to contact me.

How many location can we use?

The location is normally planned ahead of time, but if for whatever reason it is not working and the time allows it, we will go to a different place.
If you desire more than one location, it should not be a problem if they are not too far away from each other.
In any case, feel free to contact me if you think there is something specific you would need.

When do I need to pay?

For portraits, you can pay the day of the photo session.
For weddings, you need to pay 50% for registration at least 6 weeks prior and the other 50% the day of the wedding.

Are prints included in the price?

For portraits, I only provide the digital files, though if you desire I can sell you prints from professional printing labs.
For weddings, I include different prints in my different packages as well as the digital files.

What print lab to you recommend?

The lab I use personally that produce great prints at an affordable price is  Adoramapix. They are not sponsoring me but I do use them for personal use.

What equipment do I use?

Depending on the project, I use different types of lens, filters and if required, external lights and diffusers.
I can offer studio work as well to get that the more professional look you are looking for.
For weddings, I rent high-end lens to make sure I capture all the right moments.

For weddings, do you offer a list a possible pictures?

Yes I do, click on this link and print the document.
Make sure to give me this document filled up at our next appointment.
