How do we know you’re the right photographer for us?
I think it is very important to do your research. What type of wedding photography do you like? What type of editing do you want to have with your images? Shortlist 3-5 photographers you LOVE and meet with some of them. Make sure you can view their work and products, talk to them about your wedding day and ask questions about their experience. You will spend more time with your photographer than any other vendor on the day, so you want to be sure that not only do you love their work and style, but also that you enjoy their personality. You have to be able to put your trust into this person to capture your day and give you images you will love years from now.
How many weddings a year do you shoot?
I generally book 10-15 weddings a year to ensure I can give my couples my full attention.
Can we meet with you to talk about our wedding and see if we’re a good fit?
I would love to! In my home studio in Orbais or directly at your home is where I meet with couples to go over their plans for the big day and also to share products and additional work with you. Use the contact page and we will arrange a day and time!
We do not live locally. Can we book you without meeting? Can we talk over Skype/Phone?
I have many couples book me after only talking through email. While I’d love to meet all my couples before, I understand that sometimes that just isn’t possible because we live in different countries. If you decide that you would like to chat over the phone or via Skype about your wedding plans, I’d be happy to arrange a day/time with you.
If you decide to book with me, everything can be done digitally online without the need for paper or mailing.
What payment forms do you accept?
I am happy to accept cash, or money transfer. Payment through credit card is not currently offered, but Paypal can be discussed if needed.
Do you shoot in RAW? Can we have the RAW files?
I shoot entirely in RAW. Unfortunately, RAW files are not for sale, as I want you to have beautiful finished images edited to my style.
Do you have a second photographer you work with?
I have a wedding package that include a second photographer (*subject to change for future bookings). I try to work with a select few only, however, this depends on availability. I will always ensure I am working with another professional with a similar skill level.
I’m having a destination wedding. Do you photograph those?
You bet I do! I love to travel and thanks to this amazing job, I have been able to capture destination weddings around the world. For more information, please visit the Destination Wedding FAQ page.
My wedding is outside of Brussels. Are there travel fees?
I am quite often shooting all over Belgium and love to visit and photograph new venues and locations. There are no travel fees for weddings within a 200km radius of Brussels*. If you are outside this area, I’d be happy to discuss the fees based on your specific venue.
*Certain restrictions may apply based on total distance or timing/coverage of the wedding day
Do you recommend we have an Engagement session?
Engagement sessions are fun! I do recommend that every couple should have one, mainly because it gets you used to being in front of the camera and it’s great preparation for the wedding day. Most couples have never had professional photos taken before, so having some fun, laid-back photos of you in non-wedding attire is wonderful to have. You can also use these photos for invitations, save-the-dates, or as a guest-book/print at your reception.
Do you offer video coverage?
I am pleased to offer video coverage through a friend’s company, Amodio Studios. Visit the website to view the portfolio and get in touch with them for more details.
We are having a very small wedding with only 50 or less guests. Do you offer a discount for this?
No matter the size of your wedding, the same amount of time, effort, creativity and talent goes into photographing and editing. I’d be happy to discuss your wedding plans and see what would best suit your wedding. Some discounts may be available based on the date of your wedding, or the location.
Do you offer discounts for weddings Monday-Thursday?
I do offer a discounted pricing for weddings during these days of the week, as long as it does not fall on a holiday.
How long do we need for photos on the day?
I recommend having at least 2 hours to capture all your main formals and creatives. This will allow us time to capture your important family photos, as well as images with your wedding party and of course, the newly married couple! The more time we have, the more variety we can capture.
