Wedding FAQ's

Wedding Frequently Asked Questions

 

We get a lot of the same questions asked to us about the wedding day and how it all works. So on this page we have tried to answer these questions for you. But if we didn’t answer your question here, just send us an email and we will answer the questions right away.

 

Will you be the actual photographer on the day?

Yes.

****

Will you hold a date while we decide?

Yes, inform us of the date and we will hold it until we get another enquiry for the same date.

****

Are you a full time photographer?

Yes.

****

Do you shoot family photos at the wedding?

Yes we do. Allocate a mininium of about 30 minutes to this.

If you have a list of family photos you want taken, we find it’s best to give this list to an extroverted (loud) family member who knows who every one is and can round them up.

****

Can we give you a shot list of photos we want?

You can, but we don’t work off a shot list throughout the day. It really hampers our creativity and we would most probably miss important moments as we would be looking at the list all day instead of what is happening in front of us. We work very candidly throughout the day so working off a list is not really our style. But if there is a certain photo you want with someone, definitely let us know.

****

How much time do we need for location photography on the wedding day?

A mininum of 30 to 40 minutes. Just remember to factor in travel time. For a more detailed shoot, a seperate day of location photography is advised. This way we all have more time to get some really special shots and choose more exotic locations.

****

At the reception, do you do ‘table shots’ of people?

If you’d like photos of each guest at their table at the reception then just let us know and we’ll do our best to photograph them. But we cannot guarantee it… especially if you have a lot of guests or the tables are really cramped and we cannot get around. And just remember that if we’re taking posed photos of your guests all night we can miss some of the really awesome candid moments at a wedding.

****

How many photos do we get?

You get between 600 – 800 images from the day depending on what sort of coverage you have for the day.

****

Do we get every single photo that you take on the day?

Pretty much. Some photos are deleted… blurred, test shots, bad exposure, people blinking… basically the crap shots :)

****

Do you include high resolution images on custom USB in your package?

Yes. With the custom USB pen you will receive the full collection of photographs, all in high resolution and without watermark. Print, share, copy, distribute to friends as much as you want.

****

Do you retouch all the photos that we get?

Yes. The photos you see on the website are what you get. They are given overall tonal, colour, lighting adjustments, some are converted to black & white etc. We apply a certain amount of additional editing like removing an intrusive object in the background etc. but fine detailing like thinning and skin softening is only applied to the prime shots.

All photos that go into the album are given a little more work to make them look perfect.

****

Can we tell you how we want the photos retouched?

Generally the style of photos you see on the website is what you get and this is our interpretation of how that image should look. This is what you hired us for.

****

Do you include prints of all the images in your package?

No. This idea of giving you prints of your images came from the film days when your only option to see your photos was to actually see photos. This is the digital age, so this is not something we include but can print on request.

Just make sure you do get some prints made through AlgarvePhotography or do it yourself. remember, prints like the album, are the precious memories preserved and cherished for the rest of your lives.

****

Do you do engagement photography?

Yes we do. Please contact us for rates.

****

We don’t want full wedding coverage.  We are only after a few hours. Are you able to taylor something to suit are needs?

Yes, there are various packages available, a custom package can even be made to suit your needs..

****

Have you shot weddings from other cultures?

Yes. We’ve shot a huge variety of weddings: Irish, English, Scottish, South African, American, Polish, Russian, Italian, Greek, Indian, Irianian, Indian Sikh. And hopefully many more as we love experiencing different cultures.

****

How do we book you?

We just need you to fill out a reservation form and we require a €200 non-refundable deposit to secure your date.

****

Should we provide you with a meal at the reception?

Wedding days are very long days, so a service meal at the reception is greatly appreciated. Otherwise we would have to leave the location and search nearby. A meal is not required on the shorter packages.

****

How long before we get our photos from the wedding?

The turnaround time is approximately six to eight weeks. Earlier on the quieter periods.

****

How does the album design work if we want an album?

Once you pick the style of album you want we will pre-design the album for you. You get to proof the design online and then we just make changes till you are totally happy with the design.

****

How long before we get our album?

Once the album has been designed and approved by you, the album will take approximately six weeks to be made.

****

Do you offer videography?

We specialise in photography but can reccommend a good videographer.
