ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL, ALSO INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes, I am always willing to follow you wherever you want to celebrate your destination wedding or elopement – be it in nearby European countries such as Italy, Germany, France, or even farther away from Switzerland. Different landscapes, ceremony rituals and traditions are always an enrichment for me as a photographer and as a person.
DO YOU WORK IN A STUDIO?
I do all my shooting on location, that means that I mainly use natural light -because I just love it- but if necessary I can use also artificial light in really dark settings or for creative effects. I do not have a Studio with fixed lights and backgrounds.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A COUPLE, FAMILY, PORTRAIT PHOTOSHOOT?
Depending on the location and the time of the year we can decide when is best to do the photoshoot. During summer for example I usually suggest to have the photoshoot in the evening in order to have the best light possible, sunset hour is always a good choice.
HOW DOES THE BOOKING PROCESS WORK?
Couple, Family, Portraits photoshoots: we will find a date that suit us and we will fix it. I will reserve the time for you. We will also be always in contact to see if there is the need to change the date (for example for weather reasons, etc…) Weddings and elopements: as soon as you confirm that you want to book me as your wedding photographer, I will preliminarily reserve the date for your wedding and send you a booking contract within a few days. The date is officially reserved for your wedding after I receive a small deposit and a signed copy of the contract.
HOW DO YOU DECIDE BETWEEN REQUESTS FOR WEDDINGS ON THE SAME DAY?
While you are still deciding whether you want to book me as your photographer, I will inform you whenever I receive requests for weddings on the same day. My policy is first come first served, which means that I give priority to the first couple that confirms the booking.
DO YOU WORK ALONE?
Yes, I normally take care by myself of the photoshoot and of the photo post-production.
WILL WE MEET IN PERSON BEFORE/AFTER THE WEDDING?
Yes, we will meet several times before and after the wedding day! These are the meetings I normally schedule with my clients:
– A first meeting to get to know each other. This meeting is extremely important, as it allows me to understand your desires and expectations and at the same time it helps you decide whether I am the right person for you!
– An additional meeting normally takes place a few weeks before the ceremony. During this meeting we will discuss in a more precise way the details and the timeline of the wedding day.
– After the photo delivery we will have a wrap up meeting, where we can possibly discuss whether you are interested in a album or a printed product All these meetings and the corresponding travel expenses are included within all wedding packages! In case it is not possible to have face-to-face meetings we can organize online video calls in order to get to know each other before the wedding.
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE THE PICTURES?
You will receive all the post-processed pictures on a USB pen drive and as a password-protected online gallery, which allows you to easily share them with your family and friends. You will have access to the online gallery for at least one year after having received the link. From there, you can download single photos or the entire collection at once and you can choose among different formats: • Web size, ideal for sharing on the Web.
• High resolution, optimized for file transfer. • Full resolution, for prints. I will provide two different passwords for the online gallery, one for you as a client and another one that you can forward to your guests. You can then decide to mark some pictures as private – those pictures will be visible only when entering the client password and will be hidden from your guests. You will be able to download all photos in High resolution and in Full resolution without any watermark. A watermark will be present only on pictures that you download in Web size and on the previews in the online gallery.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE UNTIL WE RECEIVE THE PICTURES?
I typically deliver the pictures about two months after the day of shooting for weddings and in about two weeks for Couple, Family, portraits photoshoots.
CAN WE SHARE SOME PICTURES ON MY SOCIAL MEDIA?
Of course, you are free to share as many photos as you want! I only ask you to share photos with a link to my website or to tag my Facebook page. Thank you!
WILL YOU SHARE PHOTOS ON THE WEB?
As you can guess, sharing nice photos from clients’ is vital for a photographer. Not only does it allow me to show my photography style but it is also the best and most direct way for a couple or a person like you to choose their photographer. Nevertheless, I will always ask for your consent before sharing any photo on my website or on social media.
DO YOU SHOOT ALSO WEDDING VIDEOS?
No, I focus only on wedding photography.
