Can you hold one or more dates for us?

Unfortunately not. I can only hold your booking once the contract and booking fee have been secured, and I work on a “first come, first served” basis.

We’d like to book you- what happens now?

Simply sign the mutual contract and transfer the booking fee of CHF750.00 (non-refundable in case of cancellation or change of date). I will then secure your booking and any future enquiries for that date will be declined.

How many photographs do you privide for us?

I will offer you 500+ high-res photos from a full-day wedding. As a rule of thumb, 40 photos per hour is a good estimate. However, I never limit the number of photos I take, and if there is a lot going on, you may well receive more images. Don’t forget, you will receive the images in both colour, and black and white.

Do you edit / colour correct the photos?

Every photo you receive will have been colour-corrected, according to the look I was trying to achieve as I pressed the shutter.

How long do we need to wait for the photos?

You will receive a large, exciting package in your mailbox no later than six weeks after the wedding.

Do you use flash?

My photos should look and feel natural. For that reason, I only take my flash out of my bag at the reception, when it’s absolutely necessary.

Are you available on weekdays?

Absolutely. From Monday until Friday, my coverage packages start from 5 hours’ worth of shooting. Love Sessions are available from Monday until Thursday.

Are you willing to travel?

Absolutely – I am happy to travel to wherever you are getting married! I have shot weddings and Love Sessions in Germany, Austria and England. If you decide to fly me in to shoot your wedding, I simply add a flat travel fee to the normal photography price.

Do you do group shots / photos of the wedding party?

Of course!
But I still believe that the most important and compelling photos are un-staged, so I would ask that you please keep your list of different variations to approximately 8. If you are looking for 25 different group-shot variations, I am probably not the right photographer for you.

How many weddings do you shoot per year?

In order to keep my body and mind fresh as well to ensure a high level of quality in my photography AND excellent customer service, I limit the number of weddings I shoot to 25 during high season.

At what time should we schedule the couple portraits?

In a perfect world, I would schedule the portraits to happen about 45 minutes before sunset. However, in most cases, that is not possible. As a general rule, the light towards the end of the day is better (I’d prefer you to give me 15 minutes of good light than an hour at noon!) I’d recommend that you allow +/- 45 minutes for the portraits, not including transportation time.

If we are unable to take the photos late in the day, we need to find decent shade. Wedding portraits in direct, harsh mid-day sunlight won’t please you – trust me!

What about the copyrights?

Since I produce the photographs, I keep the copyrights (by law). However, you will have all the private usage rights, meaning that you can share the photos with all of your friends, (on Facebook, for instance) or even order prints independently. You won’t be able to give or sell the photos to a third party (i.e. vendors, magazines or otherwise). Likewise, I cannot use your photos without written consent, except via my website and social media accounts.

What if we don’t want you to publish our photos online?

I totaly respect that. I simply ask that you understand that as a wedding photographer, my website is my shop window. It can be difficult to attract new clients if I cannot display my work. If you prefer that I keep your photos off my website, I will charge an additional 15% to the fee to make up for the lost promotion opportunity.

What kind of emquipment do you work with?

I shoot with the newest Nikon DSLR. Fast lenses and a full-frame body help me to capture your story perfectly, even in dark surroundings. I also keep a third and fourth camera in the back of my car, just in case!
