Do you have different packages?
Normally I offer a full-day-coverage package. Which includes the day from Getting Ready to Reception. Every Couple has different wishes so all offers can be done individual, based on my full coverage package.
Do you offer 2 to 5 hours wedding packages?
Normally not, because my Philosophy is that I like to cover all day and be with the couple. Like This I Really can tell stories of the weddings.
What is your photography style?
My Photographic Style is Capturing in Pastell Timeless Colors. Wedding photojournalism or documentary photography paired with Fine Art Elements. Capturing things as they unfold with no interference by the photographer while focusing on collecting images that tell a story.
Placing subject(s) in a beautiful environment with the direction to be natural, or act in a manner than inspires or connects them with subtle direction from the photographer.
How far should we book in advance?
Typically 12 months in advance, as soon as you have a date and venue.
Where are you based?
I am based in Austria, but I travel worldwide.
Do you travel?
I love to travel and will generally arrive at least the day before the event to help ensure that unexpected travel delays do not make me late or miss your big day. Let me know where you are and I’ll figure out the best way to get me out to you.
When should we do the wedding portraits?
This is mostly up to you, but usually a couple of hours before the ceremony or immediately following the ceremony. Shooting before the ceremony allows you to check one more thing off the day’s to-do list early on and, more importantly, to afford you and the wedding party a chance to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with your guests. Shooting after the ceremony, depending on the time, could allow you to take advantage of the setting sun and its softer light.
Do you take getting-ready shots?
These are some of my favorite photographs to capture. The energy and excitement of everyone moving about is there, but I can also capture the calm and solemn moments when the bride and groom think about their wedding vows, the friends and family around them, and everything leading up to and away from this moment.
Do you shoot in RAW?
Yes. RAW allows me to get the best quality and image detail when I am processing the photos.
Do you edit photos? What is the difference between editing and retouching?
I shoot all digitals in raw so all my photos will be edited. This means I color correct, adjust exposure, tones, vibrance etc. Retouching, is adding or taking away something from the image that didn’t exist. For example, taking a blemish away, softening the skin, enhance eyes, thinning out arms or legs, adding a plant to cover up a trash can. Those are all things that are much more labor intensive and should be done to the images that you care about most.
Do you shoot in B&W?
I love B&W photographs. There is something so timeless about them.In Digital Age this allows me to decide after the fact whether I want to process the image in B&W or Color.
Is your wedding package flexible?
Yes. My goal is to help you find a wedding package that fits your needs and budget. Please contact me if you have questions about my wedding photography packages/services or don’t see what you’re looking for.
How many photographs will we receive?
Generally around 600-700 will be edited by a full day coverage day.
When is it best to schedule our engagement session?
Engagement portraits can be scheduled anytime in the months before your wedding. I will work with you to design a session that fits your personality and desire.
What kind of equipment do you use?
Since 2019 I did almost all my weddings with the Fuji X System and Prime Lenses.
For Reception and special low light Situation I work with 2 Full Frame Bodies from Nikon and Prime Lenses. Speedlight I use very little, I prefer to capture with available light. I process all of omy photographs on current Apple computers using Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and other professional photography software. I use a color-managed workflow for highly accurate color. I invest regularly to stay current on camera equipment, computer equipment/software and education to insure you receive very high quality photographs..
When will I get to see my wedding photos?
The First 30 Pictures will be ready within the first week after the wedding. All the other photos will generally be ready within 6-8 weeks following the wedding.
How do we get our photos?
All Pictures and Videos will be delivered with a protected Gallery. They can be Downloaded as often as you want and in Full Resolution.
The Photos will be Online 12 Month from Delivering Day. After that I can store them in a cloud for you another 24 month.
Will we meet again before the Wedding?
About one month before your wedding day, I will contact you to schedule a planning meeting. At the meeting we will discuss, plan and outline a photography schedule and locations for your wedding day, which you can pass along to your wedding coordinator and family members. At the conclusion of this meeting, your photography-related responsibilities are complete and I will take care of the rest.
Do you offer albums?
Yes. I offer custom-designed 10×10 and 12 x 12albums. Learn more about my Albums here.
Who chooses the photographs in the album?
You will choose your favorite photos and I will create the album.
Do you charge for travel?
There is no charge for travel within 150km from my Home Office (Ried, Austria). For weddings outside this area, I will work with you to determine the appropriate fee to cover my travel expenses.
Which languages do you speak?
