FAQ

ENGAGEMENTS

Where should I propose?

The best place to propose is at your hotel. It can be on the beach, a romantic dinner, or you can ask the concierge for alternatives. It can also be in a nice restaurant or on another beach (you can ask me for the best beaches in the area).

What time do you recommend having the photo session?

We recommend having the photo session in the morning, 1-2 hours after sunrise, or in the evening, one hour before sunset. However, anytime is possible.

How long does a photo session last?

Normally, one hour is sufficient. If it lasts longer, we can add an extra hour (at an additional cost).

For a one-hour photo session, we deliver 60 photos selected and edited. For a two-hour photo session, we deliver 120 photos selected and edited, plus the best 8 photos edited in Photoshop.

How can I prepare for the photo session?

We recommend that our clients look for photo inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram and share them with us. That way, we’ll know what kind of photos you’d like.

I’ve never had a professional photography session! How do I pose?

We prefer to take natural photographs and let you be yourself! We allow couples to flow in the moment and leave it up to us to capture your true essence. However, we will also show you some examples of poses, and provide instructions to capture different moments. Little by little, you will feel very comfortable in front of the camera!

How will you capture the proposal?

We provide a couple of different options. (1) Surprise photoshoot: We can capture the moment hidden in the distance with a zoom lens, and then have a session with the remainder of the time. (2) Planned photoshoot: The most recommended is to schedule a photo session so he/she can prepare for the session. At some point in the session, you can make the proposal and then continue with the photoshoot.

The pre-wedding meeting is very important for us. We want to connect with the couple and understand their needs and wants. It’s also a time to discuss important details of the wedding day.

What is your photography style?

We consider ourselves wedding photojournalists. We capture candid moments, which are unique and full of emotion. For example, the first time the father sees his daughter dressed as a bride, or the first look between the bride and groom. We are invisible (you wont even notice we are there!) yet we capture every single sincere and intimate moment. We also take portrait photos, with the bride and groom, parents, siblings, and friends. As photographic storytellers, we tell the beautiful story of your wedding day.

We do not deliver unedited pictures. We prefer light editing to maintain the organic moments. We sharpen focus, framing, colors, contrast, light, and shadows in editing.

How do you edit in Photoshop?

We choose the best 10-20 photos to edit in Photoshop. We do a meticulous job of spending 30-60 minutes on each photo. We remove background objects, adjust lighting, and improve aesthetics. The possibilities are endless, yet we always try to maintain the natural beauty of the photograph.

What equipment do you use?

We work with 4 lenses: a 70-300 telephoto zoom to capture moments at a distance, a 16-35mm wide angle lens to take large group and panoramic photos, a 24-105mm lens to capture everything, and a 50mm lens for portraits.
