Wedding Photography FAQ

Wedding Photographers come in all shapes & sizes.   Some of us do things in similar matter, others differ day and night.   This is the beauty of being an artist and having your own business; you can truly follow your heart and let your philosophy shine.   Thus attracting clients that are just the right kind for us.     We believe in simplicity & quality.   We believe in being honest & straight forward.    Our business is our life.   Here are some Frequently Asked Questions to help you determine if we’re just the right fit for you.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

  • We call our style “Fine Art Documentary”; it is based on creative photojournalism.  The most important things to us are real moments, emotions and people; the connection between the two of you and your family and friends. Capturing those moments in artistic way is what we’re all about. We want you to be floored when you see your photos, we want your family and friends to be beyond amazed at your own pieces of art.

WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN?

  • Our specialty are people in love.   We shot many different weddings but we ONLY shoot weddings.  That’s right.  We photograph life around us, but our bread&butter are weddings.  We do not offer videography services (although we have a killer list of cinematographers from all over US, to refer you to!).   We are wedding photographers and very proud of it!

WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES & PACKAGES?

  • Fill out our contact form with your wedding info/location and we’ll send you a detailed price and options. Our pricing is simple. We start with coverage & files, and then you can add products/prints either at the time of booking in a package or purchase them any time after the wedding. We give you few options to best suit your needs & style.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH FAMILY FORMALS & WEDDING DAY DETAILS?

  • We sure do!  We believe family portraits are important and we can take as few or as many as you wish. Same goes for wedding details. We photograph it all and love stylish, unique & beautiful wedding details!

SHOULD I PREPARE SHOT LIST FOR YOU?

  • We don’t work form must have lists. Prior to the wedding, we send you a comprehensive on-line questionnaire where we ask everything we need to know; who’s VIP, what’s important for you, what you’re looking towards the most, what unique/different things are happening during your wedding. The only list we do take is family/bridal party formal list. We give you about 10 basic family combination photos and you can subtract or add to that list. We are also happy to send you a full wedding gallery or two so you can see exactly each and every photo our clients get from us.
  • PINTEREST, we love it, we have it.   However, don’t pinterest photos and want to replicate them.   We can follow you on pinterest boards to learn of your style, but we don’t replicate photos. They end up mare replicas, and, frankly, replicas are NEVER as good as the original.  You don’t want your photos to be lesser replicas of someone else’s photos….right?  We suggest picking photographer that you trust completely and embracing their style and make beautiful, original art together.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT MY WEDDING?

  • aga & marcin are always the principal photographers at all weddings shot by Storytellers & Co.

WHAT IS YOUR TRAVEL FEE?

  • Travel fee is included in our prices. For weddings requiring accommodations or/and airfare we quote on individual basis and make all travel arrangements ourselves.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU HAVE?

  • We use Canon equipment,  5d ii and iii as well as an arsenal of prime lenses, flashes & video lights.  We keep things light; so we can move fast and take many beautiful photos during your wedding day.  If you’d like get more technical check out our equipment feature at Shotkit.

DO YOU HAVE BACKUP?  INSURANCE?

  • Yes & Yes.  We have plenty of equipment with us and full liability insurance.

WHAT IF YOU GET SICK?

  • We have yet to be so sick we weren’t able to get to a wedding.  However, life happens. One of us will be there for sure {very unlikely we’d both wouldn’t be able to make it} and we have a wonderful, supportive and talented network of photographers all over the US and abroad.

WE ARE SUPER SHY AND DON’T LIKE PORTRAITS, WILL YOU HELP & DIRECT US?

  • Most of our couples are like that; so no worries, we understand {since we’re similar!}, during the wedding day we quietly blend in with your family and guests; never interrupting or arranging things. We let you enjoy your day and do our thing. For portraits of the two of you; we go for creative and relaxed feel. While there will be lots closeness between the two of you since showing your connection is very important and comes out beautiful but we won’t make it awkward or forced. We will direct you enough so you’ll know what to do but not too much that it won’t look/feel like you.

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET?

  • We deliver about 70-100 photos per hour but everything depends on your wedding and how many hours we shoot.  We concentrate on the quality rather than quantity.

HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING DO WE GET THE PHOTOS?  CAN YOU GIVE US A TIMELINE?

  • The first thing after the wedding you will see are one or few sneak peaks on our FACEBOOK/INSTAGRAM page.  This will happen within few days after the wedding.   After about 6 weeks, we will send you a beautiful internet highlight slide-show with our favorite 90-110 photos telling a story of the day, set to music. We advise you to grab a glass of wine or hot tea; cuddle up and watch it together for the first time. Then share it away with family and friends.   About 2 weeks after that you will have your full on-line gallery. At that time we also send you the USB with images. If you have a book or album, that’s when we’ll start working on the design of it.

WHAT TYPE OF POST WORK DO YOU DO TO THE IMAGES?   ARE THEY ONLY PROOFS OR FINISHED, RETOUCHED, ENHANCED PIECES OF ART?

  • We do go through each and every image individually. Yup, that’s right.  We enhance the colors or change photos to black&white; then we darken/lighten parts of photos by hand.   We don’t, however, retouch, change or move things. We keep our images organic.  We might smooth skin for prints or albums, if necessary but don’t do plastic, unreal photoshop work.  Depending on the wedding {light} about 70% of photos are in color and the rest are in black & white. Everything you see on our website/blog is processed in the matter your photos will be.

WILL WE HAVE RIGHTS TO OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?   WILL THE PHOTOS BE WATERMARKED?

  • The images you will get will NOT be watermarked, and will be highest quality jpgs suitable for large size printing and you will have unlimited print/usage rights! So, print away, just do it please!!!  Everyone asks for the files and then have them sit on their hard drives. Those pretty memories aren’t meant to do that.  Seriously, ask us about our books, albums and fine art prints.  Splurge on them.

HOW DO WE SCHEDULE A CONSULT?

  • Once we send you the price sheet, answer any further questions we schedule a SKYPE date. Many of our couples are very busy; we understand that and are happy to accommodate day/time best suitable for the both of you. We like to see you via the video chat and get to know you both.  This meeting isn’t about selling our services or upgrading your package, it is simply to see how you like us, get to know you and your vision and see if we’re a good fit.  We want you to be beyond sure we’re the right photographers for you and we want you to feel completely at ease with us. Trust is big, the more you trust us, the more you will be able to ignore us on your wedding day and be completely and utterly in each and every moment.

DO YOU OFFER ANY SPECIAL PRICING FOR ELOPEMENT WEDDINGS?

  • Since they usually happen on weekdays we do have shorter coverage package for them.  We adore elopements.  Just let us know your vision, location of your elopement and we’ll get back to you with options.

HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT EACH YEAR

  • We shoot about 25-30 weddings a year.

HOW DO WE HIRE YOU?

  • After we send you our pricing and brochure, after we chat about your wedding either via Emial or skype. Once you’re ready to book; we’ll send you a contract and once we get the contract and a retainer check back we will officially be your photographers.
