F.A.Q. ANSWER TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes, I consider wedding photography as an art of telling a story.
It begins with the getting ready and finishing at the end of the day.
That’s why my smaller package starts with a 10 hour of coverage.

I usually begin when the bride starts her preparation.
During the first part of the getting ready (hair, makeup, etc.) I shoot details, and then I capture you and the bridal party.

That could be very intense memories if you are surrounded by your closest fiends.

Despite I am based in Rochester, MN, I have no objection to travel. Thus, I include travel fees within 60-mile radius of the Twins Cities and Rochester, MN.

Beyond that, I charge $0.50 per miles.

For instance, St. Cloud is located at 65 miles from Minneapolis. So for covering a wedding in St. Cloud, I would charge the 5 miles left.

For a long distance, please ask for a specific quote.

The number of pictures varies depending on the number of hours covered, the number of guests, and, of course, what happened.

For a 10-hour coverage, I can provide 800 to 1200 pictures. For a more complete answer, check the dedicated page on FAQ.

I retouch, by myself, each picture one by one to render the best quality to your image.

Check the retouch page for more information.

I don’t give. Raw files (even if you are a photographer).

I first correct them, then export them in. TIFF for local adjustment.

Finally, I export all pictures in High Definition JPG.
That’s the final files you will receive.

You have a personal use release on your pictures.
You will receive all your image through a web gallery, without watermark in the best quality (HD).

I work with the best professional camera equipment on the market.

I use multiple camera bodies (so back-up equipment), high-quality lenses with a large opening, off camera flash and more.
If you are interesting check a list of my gear page (from the FAQ).

I post the first 10 pictures one week after the marriage.

I upload the remaining images a few weeks later—depending on the total quantity of work—with a contractual maximum of nine weeks after the ceremony.

That said, I usually deliver the pictures 3 weeks after the event.

I am specialized in Wedding photography, but I cover all kinds of photography: portrait, family, products, architecture, interior and corporate photography too.

Besides, I have a personal artistic activity.

Making film and capturing pictures are two completely different jobs. That’s why, in order to ensure a high-quality service, I do only one thing, and I (try to) do it well.

I would be happy to recommend you some videographer.

Of course, I don’t want to be in any trouble for any reason. What’s more, most of the high standard venue requires an insurance certification.

Contract guarantees you to have a photographer covering your wedding in any situation.

I work in partnership with some of the best wedding photographers, so if I’m not able to testify on your special day, one of those will.

Yes, with great pleasure! I love discovering fresh places, new landscapes. All that is very challenging and exciting.

Yes. I will need energy! I don’t ask for gastronomy meal, a burger or simple sandwich will be good! I eat everything and have no allergy.

If there is one or two iconic pictures you hope to replicate, and it’s technically possible, then I am open to find original sources of inspiration.

But if you want me to change my styling to match someone else, then I may not be a good fit for you.

When I work alone, I don’t offer this option.
If you book me with a 2nd shooter, one of us will be in charge to realize a slide show while the other will keep covering the evening.

Yes. I offer a photo-booth. Check at our page!

When I first started photography, I was shooting a lot with flashes to be sure to have a clean light. Now, some years later, with experience and better equipment, I love working with natural light.

That’s great because I don’t like weird posed and cheesy pictures. I know how some people can feel awkward face to the camera lens and finally get a frozen smile (I personally have this problem). We will work on that during the engagement session.

First, send me a message or call me, we will set up a rendezvous. I drive to Minneapolis and St Paul with pleasure. Then you will have a deposit to pay and a contract to sign in order to secure your date.
