F.A.Q.

frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions ENG

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

Documentary. Capturing moments among people with minimal intervention and maximum emotional commitment. My style is very laid back and casual.

I love capturing real emotion. It means that I take wedding photographs without intervening or suggesting anything to the subjects of my photos which enables me to avoid changing the course of events. I try to capture every emotional moment so people on my photographs are very important to me. People exhibit their true emotions only when they feel relaxed, that means that I try to be as inconspicuous as possible.

You have probably noticed in my portfolio that the way I take wedding photos varies a lot.That is because I use an individual approach and I adapt to the people who hire me. Outgoing people want silly photos, romantics get romantic photos. Only sky is the limit and I am here to listen to your wishes, not the other way around.

 

WHERE ARE YOU BASED? DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

I am based in Zabok, Croatia, Europe. And big yes! I love to travel. There is no place too far. I love elopement weddings on mountains or by the sea, intimate weddings, industrial wedding locations, messy hair and dirty shoes, wild and romantic couples. My journey through wedding photography has brought me to many amazing places so far, including Spain, Malta, Italia, Slovenia, Dominican Republic and more.

ARE THERE ANY EXTRA COSTS FOR WEDDINGS OUTSIDE YOUR BASE?

For traveling outside of my base, I usually require an extra fee for a trip, toll tickets, accommodation and a rental car. Just let me know where your wedding will take place, and I’d be happy to provide you with all the details!

In other words

– Croatia- within the area of 30 kilometers from Zagreb there is no charge, outside of that area I charge o.30€ per kilometer plus the toll (Zabok should be used as the starting point for calculating the distance needed to travel). If the event is being organized farther than 100 kilometers from Zabok accommodations should be provided as well.

– On planet Earth –payment by arrangement.

WHAT KIND OF WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT AND HOW LONG IS YOUR PHOTO ENGAGEMENT?

Elopement, Rehearsal dinner, Pizza Party, Wedding Day, After Wedding, Pre-Wedding, Engagement, Couple Shooting, Vow Renewal, Travel, Intimate weddings, Wedding proposal, Honeymoon, Elopement wedding, Intimate session.

Normally weddings engagement last 10 – 12 hours. If you need photographer longer then 12 hours extra fee will be charged (100 Eur per hour).

ARE ALL THE DELIVERED PHOTOS EDITED?

In my book, style and editing cannot exist one without the other. By editing my photographs I project my emotions to the medium. I combine colored as well as black and white photographs.

DO YOU RETOUCH?

Definitely no – I like all things natural!

Ofcourse, I will remove that one pimple which decided to make your “big day” a bit difficult.

DO YOU TAKE THE STANDARD FAMILY PHOTOS?

Yes.
I am mostly a documentary style photographer which makes the photography experience an effortless and enjoyable one. However, I know that family photos are important to most couples so I take great care
when doing them.

ARE THERE ANY SNEAKY EXTRAS?

No.
I believe in total transparency. I commit 100% to every wedding I book and want to do my job with integrity and build a great working relationship with every couple. I wouldn’t jeopardize that by not being open and honest from the start.

What you see and pay is  what you get!

DO YOU DO THIS FULL TIME AND ARE YOU INSURED?

Yes.

Im doing this full time since 2013 so I am now in my sixth season. I have shot over 150 weddings. I am fully insured.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO YOU DELIVER ON AVERAGE?

I edit and deliver 700 to 1500 photographs on average. I don’t provide unedited photos!

HOW LONG BEFORE WE GET OUR PHOTOS?

I am aim to have your digitally edited photos ready anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks. During very busy periods this may extend to 8 weeks but never longer than this.

if you decide upon one of the wedding books, this process will take longer because of printing service, anywhere between 8 to 12 weeks maximum.

HOW DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS?

When your photos are ready I upload them to a private online gallery. From here you can download all the photos. They are all high resolution so perfect for printing at any size. Images are not watermarked.

Week later you will get WOODEN BOX with 16GB USB and 50 FINE ART PRINT photos.

HOW DOES THE ALBUM DESIGN WORK?

When I have the design ready I will send you a link to an e-book so that you can look through the design online and give comments on any picture you would like to change (10 changes permitted). It’s a very user friendly process. There is around 150-200 (maximum) images on an average in it.

My books are minimalist, without unnecessary photos. Story telling and very light. I do not like books with a thousand photos.

This is one example of book design. click here!

DO YOU WORK ALONE? OR DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER ASSISTING YOU?

I usually work alone, but every wedding is unique so I recommend ordering an extra photographer depending on the number of your wedding guests. I work only with carefully chosen photographers.

WHAT ABOUT VIDEO?

I can provide a number of cameramen with whom I regularly work. You can choose one of them after viewing their work by following this link.

If you, newlyweds, do not want my cameraman than you can find your own cameraman that is more suitable for you (price, quality etc.).

I will let my former clients answer this one. Please take a look at the feedback I have received on google, my facebook page, my blog posts, online forums and in the Testimonials section on the homepage.

WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT TO HEAR BACK FROM YOU AFTER I’VE CONTACTED YOU?

I will get back to you within 36hrs. If you don’t hear from me, please check your spam folder or send me an a regular e-mail instead contact form. Or just call me.

WE DECIDED TO ENTRUST IN YOUR TALENTED HANDS AND EYES OUR WEDDING DAY! WHAT’S NEXT? HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
