Before a booking, it is important to get to know each other and discuss mutual ideas, expectations, and costs. The best solution to achieve this seems for us to be a brief meeting. If you decide to book us as photographers, the next step will be a test shooting at the location, where you plan to get married. During this shooting we will further get to know you, get an impression of the location as well as of the lighting conditions. The pictures made during the test shooting will serve us for guidance and preparation. Usually, they won’t be given to the bridal couple. On your big day, we will work as much as possible from the background. Our approach to a photo-journalistic documentation of the event requires us to work maximally inconspicuously and influence the events as little as possible, except for the portrait shooting. This is the only way we can create an authentic and natural photographic coverage.
After the wedding – typically one week later – you will get a digital contact sheet of your photos. This way you can select pictures for ‘Thank you’ and greeting cards quickly. These photos will be edited promptly and, in high resolution, will be sent to you or provided via download. Most of the time families are already pretty excited:-) For the complete coverage of your wedding and the photos from the bridal couple’s shooting, we will need approximately four to six weeks after that. You are welcome to visit us in order to discuss pictures and express wishes. At the end, you will get our photo coverage of your wedding – appr. 20 to 40 photos –, the pictures of the bridal shooting – appr. 10 photos – as high-resolution JPG files on DVD as well as our invoice. Furthermore, we will provide you with all the photos of the day pre-selected (non-relevant and test pictures already excluded) on DVD or via download.
If desired, we are happy to offer the photographic printing of the pictures on high-quality photographic paper or in form of a photobook. The corresponding costs will be discussed individually.
We will charge 75.– € per hour (billing in intervals of 15 minutes) for preparing the photos and creating the print templates/photobooks. Depending on the extent, we will need, for example, two to four hours for a photobook. Photos that are supposed to be developed additionally, i.e., that have not been included in the actual coverage, can be finished afterwards without a problem. Typically, we require approximately 15 minutes for each photo. If you have a favorite online print service, you are welcome to let us know. You will then get the ready-to-print pictures or photobooks and will be able to order them at the print service yourselves.
We are looking forward to many festive moments and great photos with and of you.
Many greetings from Bad Vilbel, the town of mineral springs!
