Weddings & Elopements
your wedding day
Where are you based?
I’m based in Porto, Portugal.
What is the investment we’d have to take into account to have you on our wedding day?
My full day wedding coverage starts at a min. of 8 hours, with me and another photographer on location at your wedding. This base collection is currently priced at 1000 EUR.
Can we book you for our Civil Ceremony?
Yes. Take a look at my Elopement Collection. Ceremonies with less than 30 people are considered Elopement.
How long in advance should we go ahead and send you a request?
As soon as you know your wedding date, you can contact me. I´m receiving requests up to 1.5 years in advance, so it is always a good idea to save your date with us as soon as it is possible for you.
Do you travel / photograph weddings abroad?
I l o v e traveling for your Destination Wedding. I’m easy going person and my equipment is wisely picked to travel with. Most of the times i’m lodging at low budget options like small B&Bs or AirBnB places. Being located not far from two of the biggest International Airports in Europe, I’m able to find affordable air fare to go pretty much anywhere in the world.
Are you only offering photos, or do you offer video too?
I do love my photography and this is what I primarily offer. However, I believe that every wedding should be captured in some motion frames too, so I started producing little Films, what i call Moving Portraits (2 – 3 minutes length) that can be saved onto your smart phones and be carried close to your heart at all times. It is a perfect addition to your photos if the investment of hiring a full time videographer is not what you are looking for. I do however say, that my work does not replace someone who takes care of only the videography on your wedding day.
When do we receive our Photos/Videos and how many photos will we get?
The delivery time of your photos / video is maximum 6 weeks, but most of the time it’s a lot sooner. You will receive a selected amount of photos and the minimum amount of pictures depends on the coverage time you choose to book with us ( 500 pictures at an 8h wedding coverage) Your photos will all be edited in our signature style and will be delivered in full resolution without any watermarks for your own personal use.
What about copyrights and publishing rights?
With my Collections you receive shared copyright of your wedding photos for private use. I retain the right to use the photos for my marketing purposes which include my own Website & Blog, Wedding Blogs, Wedding Magazines, ect. If you prefer your photos to stay private, you can purchase exclusive rights. If you would like to share your photos online on your Social Media Channels, I would be super happy if you add a link to my Facebook Page, Instagram or Website.
When do we have to pay you?
Finances are an important point during your wedding planning. I do charge a reservation fee of 50% of your order value upon a contract signature. The final payment will then be due 7 days after your wedding day. If you are traveling and will not be able to process payments during that time, we kindly ask you to send the payment in advance in order to avoid delayed payments.
Your website is in English, Do you speak other languages too?
My mother tongue is Portuguese but i can perfectly communicate in English.
I understand and speak a little bit of Spanish, French and Italian.
How do you work on a Wedding Day?
Most of the time I work with a second photographer.
We are always out there as a team on your wedding day. We may split up on certain sections of the day, i.e. the Getting Ready, if the logistics of your day allow it. In general we prefer to stick to our teamwork routine as this was proven to works best for us. We don’t really take formal breaks as we don’t want to miss anything important throughout the day. We do ask you to include a warm meal for us during dinner time, if we cover your wedding day for 8h or more. We will most likely not be sitting at our table very much and be back and forth photographing, backing up data, setting up stuff, so it is perfectly fine if we don’t sit right by your side.
What about Engagement Sessions & Bridal Portraits?
I provide complimentary engagement sessions for all of my wedding clients. These sessions are a great way for us to get to know one another & discover how to make you comfortable in front of the camera. Think of your engagement session as less of a planned outing to pose on a bench and more of a date that I just happen to crash. I’ll give you enough direction to not feel awkward but enough distance to enjoy each others’ company.
