FAQ

HOW LONG WILL YOU BE PHOTOGRAPHING AT OUR WEDDING?

Time is relativ. We will agree on the scope in advance, but I will be at the place at least an hour earlier, or a day if it is destination wedding, so that I can lay out my things in peace, take a breather and look at the location.

WE SEE THAT YOU WORK MAINLY IN PRAGUE AND BRATISLAVA, BUT WE ARE HAVING A WEDDING SOMEWHERE ELSE. WILL YOU COME TO US?

Sure, I can be everywhere! From Košice to Reykjavik! I like to travel and even more like to travel for a wedding.

WHEN, HOW AND HOW MANY WEDDING PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?

To be honest, I don't like various strict packages and complex price lists. I believe that every couple and every wedding is unique. Some weddings have 30 guests, others 230. On average, however, I usually upload between 250-800 photos.

As for uploading photos, I will prepare an online gallery for you, from where you can download them at any time, share them, send them to friends and family, or have them printed.

WHEN WILL WE GET THE FINAL PHOTOS FROM THE WEDDING?

The standard waiting time is 4-8 weeks.

DO YOU EDIT OUR PHOTOS?

Sure thing! Every single photo goes through basic adjustments such as exposure correction, white balance, proper cropping, color correction and then color correction. For each wedding, I try to find theme colors and shades that I apply to all the photos you receive from me. I also upload all the photos in a tuned black and white version.

Sometimes when the light doesn't play well and the color variant is unusable unlike black and white, the final photo will be black and white only.

WHAT ABOUT RETOUCHING?

It is important to recognize the difference between retouching and editing a photo. Each photo will undergo correction and color adjustment. Of course, I can also offer photo retouching, i.e. smoothing the skin, removing imperfections, or ironing clothes. Retouching is not included in the basic price, and in case of interest, we will agree on it in advance.

CAN YOU TAKE PHOTOS FROM THE AIR, DO YOU HAVE A DRONE?

I have a drone and if the location of the wedding or portrait shoot is not in a no-fly zone and we have time, I will definitely use it.

WHAT IF WE MANAGE TO LOSE THE PHOTOS WE RECEIVED FROM YOU?

If such an unpleasant thing happens to you within a year of the wedding, nothing happens. I back up the archive of uploaded photos for you on my servers for up to one year.

DO YOU TAKE WEDDING PORTRAITS EVEN OUTSIDE THE WEDDING DAY?

If you want to fully devote your wedding day to your guests and you don't want to miss even an hour, we can arrange a portrait session for another day. Or if you would like portraits in a different, more distant location, we will come up with that too.
Portraiture on a day other than the wedding day is an extra service and the price is negotiable.

WILL WE GET AN ALBUM OR PHOTO BOOK FROM THE WEDDING DAY?

A photo book or an album is not a problem, I work with the highest quality photo book printing company in Slovakia and also in the Czech Republic, and I will be happy to create yours for you. The price of the photobook depends on the number of pages and material and we will agree on it before or after; after the wedding.

DO WE EVEN MEET IN PERSON BEFORE THE PHOTOGRAPH?

Yes, always! I mean...almost always. I work in Prague and Bratislava, so if you are somewhere close to these places, we will definitely meet for a coffee somewhere, we will go over your ideas and I will present to you in detail what I offer and how it all actually goes. However, if you live somewhere that is not easy to get to, we can meet online and have a coffee and a chat from each of our own living rooms.

DO YOU ALSO PHOTOGRAPH SMALL WEDDINGS OF A FEW PEOPLE? FOR EXAMPLE ONLY THE FUTURE MARRIED COUPLE AND TWO WITNESSES?

Yes. I really like small intimate weddings, elopements. They are very personal, always have a great atmosphere, and usually the wedding couple can choose beautiful locations that a hundred-person wedding would never get to.

WE HAVE READ EVERYTHING AND WE WOULD LIKE YOU AT OUR WEDDING WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?

Yesss! Please fill in Contact form or write me an email with basic information about your wedding plans. In written communication, we will arrange a personal meeting or a zoom call and find out if we and our ideas catch each other's eye.
When we are all satisfied, we shake hands and you pay a non-refundable deposit of 1/3 of the final amount for the services (it serves as a date reservation), the rest of the reward is due within a week of the wedding.
And then we just have to look forward to the day.
