If there’s a standard question or query you have, perhaps our FAQ section can answer it. freshPhotography has done the best to answer some common questions regarding our wedding photography. However, should your answer not be below, please feel free to also email us at email@example.com or use our contact form.
Can we select the images for the wedding album?
It is your wedding album! When you order an album design from us we will prepare some suggestion pages for your album. We then will go through every photo with you at your appointment making it so easy for you to select and decide on your favourite photos. Should you decide you want more in, or out, we’ll then rework the album, with you, to ensure it’s exactly what you’re after. We will help you create the wedding album of your dreams with a minimum of fuss.
Do we get a contract?
Yes. You will receive a standard photography contract to book our service. We can send out the contract and you just need to send it back signed. As we sometimes have clients from interstate and overseas (which makes it a bit harder to meet – but there is always skype ) we also can send you the contract via email and you just need to send us a scan. Keep it simple!
Do we get all images?
On a wedding day you can shoot a lot of pictures – not all of them turn out great (we shoot sometimes in high speed burst mode which takes up to 7 pictures per second. This helps us to get a perfect shot. We usually give our clients a great selection of more than 500 pictures of the day and a smaller “best of gallery”. You want quality not quantity.
Do you process the images?
All pictures are colour corrected or adjusted for black & white (sometimes they just work better) or any other preferred style … We process and digitally enhance your best pictures. Let us know when you prefer a certain style of processing when you book us.
Do you supply digital images, prints and albums?
We supply you with all the high resolution digital pictures as jpgs. You also get a “best of” gallery on the web which documents your day. You get all the rights of the pictures for your private use with no watermarks. You will receive the pictures all on DVD or USB stick. So you can easily order prints your as you wish. Of course we can also organise you professional prints or design you an album for you or your parents.
Do you travel for our wedding?
We love local Melbourne weddings but we also love to travel within Victoria, interstate or even overseas to capture weddings. Just contact us to discuss your location and travel arrangements. We do not charge travel costs within Melbourne.
Don’t hesitate to contact us for any interesting destination weddings – we even travelled to Europe several times to shoot weddings. Japan, Fiji, Byron Bay, Noosa … we love to see different locations.
How fast can we get our images?
We usually deliver the pictures within 4 to 8 weeks after your wedding day. Need it faster … just ask us.
How long do you stay?
You tell us … there is no time limit. Our wedding package includes already 10 hours which is suitable for most weddings – but we also have an unlimited option to cover longer weddings in Melbourne. We always love to capture your whole day – from getting ready until you leave the reception.
How many photographers will attend our wedding?
You book one main photographer for your wedding. Depending on size and time of your wedding we might assign two photographers (Souri & Andreas) to shoot your wedding – or we could bring an assistant. By doing this freshPhotography can capture multiple angles of each special moment from your day. We will discuss the options with you.
How much time do the formals and creative shots take?
This is totally up to you. Just keep in mind that professional photos take some time – it depends on your location, the weather and the number of photos you want. We always suggest to have a minimum of one hour with us to do some shots between the ceremony and reception. You get the best light the hour before sunset – this is not possible all the time and you can’t plan the weather – but try to aim for it. We are happy to discuss your wishes.
What do you mean by high-resolution?
You always receive the high resolution digital files on USB drive. We use modern digital SLR photo equipment with a picture quality between up to 22 megapixels. You will receive your pictures in 300 dpi for perfect print quality.
What style of photos do you supply?
As wedding photographers, we want to capture your big moments as well as the finer details. We will photograph your day with minimal interruption to your movements. Our style can be described as creative photojournalism. We want every wedding to look like it was shot for a magazine. We want to tell the story of your big day. Have a look at our wedding photography portfolio to get some ideas about our style.
When do we need to pay?
You will need to pay a 30% deposit at the time of booking to secure your day. The rest is payable 1 week before the wedding.
Why should I get an engagement shoot?
This is a great way to get used to a photo shoot in a relaxed atmosphere. They are fun pictures showing your love … when you get them early enough you might want to use them for your invites. Most people never had professional photos of them taken.
