Frequently Asked Questions
There’s so many photographers out there, why should we hire YOU?
True, there’s thousands and thousands of wedding photographers out there, some that we even look up to and that inspire us every single day. Each wedding photographer will bring something to the table. But what we can guarantee you most of all is that you wont be just any pay check to us, that we will actually care about you and get to know you because we know what those photos represent for you and how big of a commitment this is. We promise to not be the kind of photographer that just want to check boxes off his list without caring about the composition, light and how you look. We promise to not be the kind of photographer that comes to you at 11:31 when his contract end at 11:31. In other words we promise that you wont be a simple contract to us, but dear friends inviting us to the greatest day of their life.
We will be present every step of the way and make sure no stress is added to your wedding planning when it comes to our services. This is our commitment to you.
We will also add that choosing a wedding photographer is something really personal, you have to “click” and be comfortable sharing this day with someone you didn’t knew before. So let’s meet, let’s chat and let us prove you we’re up to the task! And if you end up choosing another photographer, it’s ok, not every wedding photographer is meant for you and we encourage everyone to follow their instinct and find the best fit for them, even if it’s not us.
What’s your work process?
When first contacting us, you’ll get a fully detail answer to that question but for a shorter version here is the steps to our collaboration:
1. We meet, face to face or skype, see if we “click” and discuss wedding details and packages
2. You come back to us with the package of your choosing and we lay down a contract specific to your needs. We meet again and we all sign it (possibility to do that online)
3. We send you our rarely made questionary, which will give us all the tools to concrete wonderful photos.
4. We meet on location for your big day, we’ll be your shadow and follow you everywhere (except maybe to the bathroom ahah), we’ll drool at your beautiful outfit and all the personalised details you’d have put into your wedding. We’ll cry, we’ll laugh and most of all we’ll click just at the right times!
When can we expect to get our photos?
We make sure to deliver the photos to you in a month, it can seem like a long time but don’t worry, you’ll get some occasional photos while you wait!
No matter the package chosen you’ll receive them on a personalised engraved USB drive in full resolution.
What equipment do you have?
Good gear will never make a good photographer. But as professionals having the best tools to create our art is very important to us.
We have 3 Canon Bodies ( 5d Mark IV, 6D Mark II, 6D Mark I) but also tons of magical Lens ( Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 70-200mm 2.8, Tokina Macro 100mm 2.8, Canon 16-35mm 2.8, Sigma Art 50mm 1.4 and several others)
We also have flashes, tripods, monopods, reflectors... Well you get it, we’re totally covered!
How would you describe your style?
Our style is a romantic documentary style with a renaissance feeling. We consider ourselves to be part of the dramatic/cinematic wedding photography style.
Do you always shoot together?
Mostly. We really love working together and we really feel like we are two sides of one coin. We totally complete each other in our photography approach/ style and knowledge. Thought it can happen that on smaller weddings such as elopements and engagement sessions that only one of us is in attendance.
Do you travel?
Hell yes ! Definitely! Both of our fathers worked for airlines, so we spent most of our childhood traveling across the globe (well Lance beats me by far but he has few years ahead so I think that's cheating, haha). For us, traveling has always been a part of our life and always will be! We can grab a coffee and tell you all about some of our great adventures and help you plan yours, life is all about that after all. Send us your dream location for a shoot and let’s make it happen!
Do you give us all the Raw unedited files?
Ok so we get that it’s something that can be frustrating, knowing someone as thousands of pictures of you and to never see them, but trust us. It’s for a good cause.
Raw files are just like an unfinished painting, like someone just drew the layout and that’s it. How good of a painter would I be to just deliver that to you?
With our editing we put colours, highlights, contrasts etc all at the right places making the painting come to life. And rest assured, we can guarantee you we know what makes a good photo and the ones that don’t get delivered are just not worth it. We truly believe in quality over quantity, so put your trust in us, relax, and we promise you wont be feeling like you're missing out on anything.
How many photos will we get?
The number of photos that will be provided directly depends on the time of coverage and guest.
For every package made you chose you’ll have a number of insured photos but we never really count them. We will give you as many photos as we feel like they are really worth it. Again, quality over quantity, but with what our couples created so far we tend to notice that we get quality in big quantity!
Will you use our photos to promote yourself on social media and website?
Yes ! We are very proud of every wedding, family and couple we photographed. But of course if some photos makes you uncomfortable for any reason you have the right to let us know and we’ll take care of it!
Do you have any special deals we should know about?
Yes! We offer some discounts for certain elopements and destination wedding if they take place in Europe.
I’m really not photogenic, what if I don’t like myself on the photos?
Aaaaah. Be reassured, no one really thinks they’re photogenic (except models maybe), simply because we’ve mainly seen our face in the mirror all our life and seeing it on a photo is completely different! But you know what helps? A photographer! We often tell our clients that even us had family members who tried taking good photos of us, we say “hey can you take a photo of us? We never get some with the two of us” so they take our camera, with the exact same settings we were using and… well it’s not really working. Because non professional photographers just don’t know what a good frame is, they don’t know when to click and they don’t really see which angles would be flattering and good for the light. So you look at it and … well…disappointment.
Often people think everyone can take good photos, that it’s just because you have a nice camera. But no. You have to have a trained eye and the good instinct and just know what you’re doing! So let us do the work and you’ll think “ maybe I AM photogenic!”
Posing in front of a camera seems really awkward, how do you make us more comfortable?
Of course. Don’t you worry you’re in good hands. In our training at Speos Photographic Institute, we had to pose for our classmates to practice studio and outdoor shoots, so we both really understand what it’s like to be in front of the camera. So let’s put some music, tell us about the first time you met each other let’s takes some photos, show you how good and cute you both look and enjoy our little adventure!
When should we book you?
As soon as possible!
Is it ok if our guests take some photos at the wedding?
Yes. However, we strongly recommend that couples tell their guests to keep their phones put away during the ceremony. You've hired a professional photographer for a reason. Nobody wants to see wedding photos with a bunch of guests staring at the screens on their phones rather than the special moments taking place before them. And you don't want to risk the shot of a lifetime being stolen by an over eager guest jumping in front of the pro photographer to capture that pivotal moment with a subpar iPhone snapshot when the same moment was about to be captured by a trained photographer.
