Frequently asked questions

Weddings are unique and therefore raise a lot of questions with couples. Because of this, we’ve gathered a few frequently asked questions and answers. If your question is not in here, please send us an email.

How long will the photoshoot take?

We advise to take at least 90 minutes for the photoshoot. Any time to travel will have to be added to this. Usually this will mean at least two hours for the shoot.

Making the family formals will take usually between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the combinations you would like.

Do you like detail pictures? Then it’s important that we’re there during the preparations, so we’ll be able to make pictures of the shoes, rings and dress. We need at least 30 minutes to make these kinds of photos, especially because we can’t make them when you’re fully dressed.

Do you Photoshop our pictures?

Ofcourse we’ll edit your photos to be as optimal as possible by changing the color and contrast, but we don’t remove or add anything, or Photoshop you thinner. While taking pictures we try to watch out for distractions and remove them on the spot. We crop the photos and optimize the colors, but we always stay close to the reality. We shoot everything in color and afterwards we’ll convert some in black and white.

Is it possible to take a picture of every guest when they enter, in something like a Photo Booth?

Our style is to capture relaxed and spontaneous moments when your guests are chatting and laughing. This spontaneity is completely gone when we ask them “Could you smile and look into the camera?” Of course we’ll take some group pictures if you’d like, but after that we return to making “real” photographs. If you’d like us to recommend a Photo Booth company, please let us know.

Do you want a “must-have”-list?

We’ll capture everything that passes our camera. If there are items like a unique and handmade ring pillow, please let us know, but must-have lists make us stressed out and we’ll just be busy crossing out the to-do list in stead of capturing what is happening. We’d rather make a picture of grandma that’s smiling and enjoying the day!

We want you to capture our church ceremony and party. Is it possible that you take a break (unpaid) for a few hours?

No sorry, when we capture your day, we reserve the whole day for you. We would like to be like one of the guests and be part of the day. We stay alert the whole time, when we get out of this “rhythm”, we’ll miss too many beautiful moments. Think about all those wonderful speeches, a beautifully decorated table and all those lovely dishes. Or a evening shoot while the sun is setting?

Do you have a back-up camera?

Of course! We both have 2 Canon 5D Mark IV’s to use. If anything goes wrong when have the same camera as a backup.

Questions?

We would love to share our knowledge and network with you guys. If you have any questions, let us know.

What if one of you gets sick?

We don’t get sick that often, but if we have a mild flu we’ll still come. When we break an arm or leg, we’ll be able to arrange a second shooter from a big group of professional wedding photographers.

How long does it take untill we receive our wedding photos?

We work really hard to finish your photos! Within 3 to 6 weeks we’ll have them ready in an online gallery. We send the link and password via email or regular mail. You may share this gallery with all of your friends and family.

We’ll send you a second invoice after your wedding, and after that’s paid we’ll send the package as soon as possible to your address.

Is it possible to get every photo you took during our day?

No, this is not possible. We make a very broad selection of the photos and you’ll get a minimum amount of photos. Often we deliver even more than that.

The downside of getting all photos we took:

  • You’ll have unflattering photos of yourself
  • It’s really boring to look at so many photos
  • We often maken multiple photos of the same setting/subject, to get the best one. You’ll browse through a lot of double photos.
  • We don’t deliver unedited photos, because we strongly believe that you wedding should be a happy memory of a beautiful day. Photos that are unedited don’t contribute to that, A complete, well edited set of images does!

What kind of wedding could we wake you up for in the middle of the night?

Yes, thanks for asking! Mariëlle Jongmans, a very sweet and talented ceremony speaker, gave us the idea to make a list of our wedding photography wishes. Ours are:

  • A Wedding in Downton Abbey-style, with sloping hills, beautiful British or Irish castles and a lot of happiness. (when possible, in Engels, Schotland, Wales and (Northern) Ireland)
  • A wedding in a really chique location, chandeliers a ball room and golden styling.
  • A destination wedding in Sweden, Norway or Finland. Of course with views over a Fjord, natural landscapes and waving flags.
