Frequently Asked Questions
A wedding is more than just a ceremony. It’s a day full of emotions and require months of planning and preparing every single detail to make it happen!
Knowing that these images will have a place in your home and last for a lifetime is such an honor to me.
I've done weddings as my full time job since 2016 - with some rest times while I rebrand my wedding photography website and also when I move from Chile to New Zealand - but it doesn't matter where the couples are from in the world, I get some similar questions along the way.
That's why to make it easy for you while are you scouting your wedding photography and decide to click on my website I wrote below some of those questions and answers.
Where are you located? Do you travel?
I have a traveler heart, so is always a pleasure to travel anywhere in the world for a wedding.
Im based in Auckland, New Zealand. But I move around a lot, specially during June - August, you can find me anywhere in the world because I like to travel haha. So I'm available worldwide just get in touch for a special quote.
How we can book you? When is the full payment due?
I ask 20% deposit to book your wedding date and also you read and sign my contract. The full payment is due 2 weeks before the wedding.
Do you offer elopement packages?
Yes, absolutely, and also if you have a small celebration and you don't require the minimum 4 hours package on my website, we can have a chat about it and we can sort out something according to your requirements! just send me an email and Im happy to talk about your wedding plans.
Im happy to edit your photos in my natural and warm style. You can see the style of my editing on my page. Some pictures will be black and white – when it fits to the motive. Some of the photos will look bright and colourful and some of them dark and moody, this is depending on the lighting available as if is a sunny day or a cloudy day, the color you've choose for your wedding style, the landscape, even the side of the world you are in! , Im also happy to hear about your vision and help you with some guidance to get the photos you want!
How many pictures of our wedding will we get?
You will receive the best photos of your wedding day. Usually I deliver between 400 – 1000 images, depending on the booked time frame.
Do you use flashes very often or available light?
For weddings I prefer available light, but I use flashes when the natural light isn’t adequate. (I had lots of experience with flash from Chilean weddings, yeah... a whole big party until 5am! )
When will we get the photos after our wedding?
I deliver your photos within four to six weeks after the wedding. A preview within 48 hours after the wedding is included too.
You mentioned an online gallery. How does this work?
Your personal online gallery is launched within four weeks after your wedding. These pictures will be ready for download without watermarks, without extra costs. And its an easy way to share your photos with your family and friends so they can download their own!
when do you eat on our wedding day?
It’s great if you have one serving for me, but I don't extra seat in the guest tables. If you want to give me a seat, take one where I can be flexible. I always eat at the same time as the wedding guests so I don't miss any important part and also no one likes to be photographed while eating isn't? hehe.
I want to book but I am worried if things go over time on the day it won’t be enough, can I add more hours on the day?
Yes if things are running late on the day I can usually stay longer and just charge per hour if time exceeds the package you chose. The price per extra hour is $400.
Do you do engagement sessions?
Yes! I love them because is a good way for couples to get use to be in front of the camera, I can easy say that at least 90% of the couples never had done a photoshoot before so most of the couples you see in my website, is the first time in front of a camera and they look like models!!!
Let me know if you’d like to book one in! You can have a look to some of them in this link Engagement Photoshoots
Also I do Maternity photoshoots, events, festivals, branding photography for the same price.
What camera do you use?
I use Canon R6 and Canon 5D Mark IV, and different lenses : 24mm , 35mm, 50mm, 85mm.
