Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is wedding photojournalism?

It is photography that is unobtrusive and focuses primarily on the candid, spontaneous moments of a wedding. We never interrupt, nor do we try to direct or choreograph the wedding.

Q. What is the standard length of time for photography coverage?

That is entirely up to you. The amount you need will depend on your schedule and the events of the day. We recommend a minimum of 7 hours of coverage to ensure that we capture the flow of the day in true photojournalistic style.

Q. When do you begin shooting photos?

Because we use a photojournalistic approach to photographing weddings, we shoot during your whole event. We like to capture the day in its entirety – from the bride getting ready to the cocktail (and optionnaly to the cutting of the cake).

Q. How do you approach formal portraits?

We have a very natural approach to photographing the bride and groom and bridal party portraits. However, we found that everybody’s needs are different in this particular area and we will customize the coverage to your preferences.

Q. What is « team coverage »?

The nature of a wedding is celebratory and often spontaneous, memorable events happen simultaneously at different locations. For this reason we strongly recommend a team coverage, which consists of 2 photographers and an assistant.

Q. What do we receive after the wedding?

You will receive a proof CD and contact-sheets that contains all the images. Depending on your coverage, the amount of images it contains is usually 300 to 600. A customized web site is also created for you so that you may easily share your images with family and friends.

Q. Do you offer Wedding Albums?

Absolutely. We design and produce exquisitely handcrafted, top quality leather , silk or cotton bound albums.

Q. How far in advance do you recommend we book your services?

Generally our photographers are booked 9 to 12 months prior to the wedding date. However, do not hesitate to call about an event that is just around the corner as we may have some last-minute availability.

Q. How do we reserve the date?

Please contact us at the studio and we will send a contract out to you. A 20% deposit is also asked.

Q. Will we meet with you before the wedding?

Of course. Please call the studio and schedule an appointment with one of our photographers. If you cannot make it to the studio you can also book our services over the phone, but it is definitely by meeting your photographer that trust and understanding will come.

Q. What cameras and lenses do you use?

The photographers use only top-grade, professional cameras and lenses with the best optics. We normally work with at least 2 cameras and a variety of lenses from 1,4/24mm , 1,2/50 mm to 2.8/200mm.

Q. How can I print my own print from your DVD ?

If you use our lab services, images are individually corrected for exposure, color balances to optimize the subject’s skin tones,  and adjusted for contrast. All prints are manually printed on Luster paper and can be ordered directly from our Web site ( Prices start at € 6.00).

Q.Do you have a price list?

We usually give a specific quotation during the first meeting. Every wedding is different , so we don’t have standard packages, just have in mind we usually quote between €1500 and €3500.

Q.How far do you travel ?

We travel anywhere in France and sometimes in Europe ( UK , Italy and Germany). We speak english and our wish is to travel more often to UK, Canada and the US.
