FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Choosing a wedding photographer in Mexico for your wedding day can be a daunting task, especially if you don´t speak the language. As a Mexico Destination Wedding Photographer I work in a manner that is 100% transparent to the wedding couple, with no hidden surprises. Ensuring our expectations are aligned with clear communication prior to the wedding.
Occasionally, the bride and/or groom have questions they are too afraid to ask their Mexico Destination Wedding Photographer in person, over the phone or via email. I hope by compiling this list of Frequently Asked Questions, it puts you at ease.
If I have omitted any question you feel is important to you and your special day, please let me know and I will gladly consider adding it.
I consider my wedding photography style to be a combination of editorial and photo-journalistic. It is less intrusive to you, the wedding couple and your guests, and allows me to capture the best moments of your wedding without becoming a burden.
You can email, fill out the contact form on the contact me page or call via WhatsApp or Skype and request the respective information be sent to you. I will need the date and exact location of your destination wedding, and of course, your contact information.
It is very important to provide as much information about your wedding as possible, so I can have a comprehensive understanding of the requirements for your event.
If you are happy and want to proceed with my wedding photography services, a deposit will be required to secure your wedding date. Contact me to discuss Payment Policy and options available to you with no compromise. Alternatively, we can meet in person to discuss, or even have a video Skype chat.
I would recommend you get in touch with me directly and enquire immediately. A delay may result in loss of availability. Besides, if you are confident, you would like me as your wedding photographer, I can provide you with my availability of dates during a period of dates you are considering for your wedding.
For Indian Weddings or multiple day weddings, we generally manage special price lists to accommodate all of your events. We recommend you get in touch to discuss when and the where your Indian Wedding will take place, and then we can swiftly put together a proposal for you to review.
I occasionally offer discounts, but these depend on a number of factors, my availability, travel schedule and/or season.
So, if you any budgetary concerns, feel free to contact me without compromise and we can discuss. Also, we can tailor a wedding photography package that best suits your budget and requirement.
I love to travel, who doesn´t? I am based in Playa del Carmen, but I am always more than happy to travel for your wedding, as long as my schedule allows. Destination weddings are always a breath of fresh air for me and I thoroughly enjoy them! If you are debating having a destination wedding, don´t hesitate to contact me and ask about my availability and pricing.
My work calendar varies considerably, so to avoid disappoint I would recommend booking me 6 months to 1 year in advance. However, occasionally I may be booked for wedding photography 1 month in advance. In a nutshell, the sooner, the better!.
Unfortunately, I am unable to hold a date for your wedding without an initial deposit AND signed contract. As I am sure you can appreciate, I accept bookings on a first come/first served basis. So, if you are considering booking me as your wedding photographer, please let me know at your earliest convenience.
It isn´t essential. But I would highly recommend it! It is different country, different culture and may have different ways of conducting business than what you are used to. Wedding planners will save you money, as they have a list of trusted suppliers they always work with. You both likely have full time jobs, and organising a destination wedding is no easy feat!
It is a question that is very difficult to give a straight answer, as it will depend on so many factors. Your wedding venue, how many guests you are inviting, the vendors you choose, where you are staying, etc. This is another reason I encourage couples to contract a destination wedding planner in Mexico, it will take a huge weight off your shoulders.
Are you going to be having your destination wedding in Cancun? Playa del Carmen? Puerto Vallarta or Los Cabos? Get in touch for a casual chat about your big day.
Once you have paid the deposit, your wedding date is then guaranteed in my diary and I will email you a “Wedding Photography Welcome Pack” along with a receipt, which will acknowledge your payment of the deposit, the amount received, the date and what the next steps are. This, of course, will vary, depending on your event requirements and the service you have booked.
Whilst the oven doesn´t make the chef, I am occasionally asked about the equipment I use. Which includes a heavy investment in the best Canon professional cameras, Canon prime lenses, as well as a diverse range of lighting equipment and light modifiers to facilitate the most challenging environments. The quality of my work and that which I deliver to the client is of paramount importance. As such, on any wedding day, I always work with two cameras and backups of piece of gear I carry.
I provide the client with a selection of edited, high quality, high-resolution digital files, from which you can make unlimited prints and use them for non-commercial purposes. I do retain the copyright of the images and rights to use them in my portfolio, promotional purposes, competitions etc.
The number of photographs taken depends on coverage time, size of the wedding, size of the venue, and a number of other factors. My goal is to deliver beautiful high-res images that capture a story of your wedding day. For this reason, I will not provide you with all the images I take on your wedding day (and a lot of photos are taken!), rather only the images meeting my professional, technical and artistic standards. However, as a guide, for full coverage of your Mexico destination wedding day of 8 to 12 hours, you will receive at least 800 high-quality edited images.
Delivery time depends on my work schedule, as all weddings are processed in chronological order. It may take from 30 to 90 days to receive your final collection of wedding photos.
However, I also provide my clients with a selection of edited images within 7 days after their wedding.
Once your photos are ready, you will be sent a link to your own private client gallery where you will be able to view, share and download the high-resolution files, and even buy prints on a diverse number of high quality materials such as, canvas, acrylic, wooden blocks, glycée, amongst others.
If you have included a printed album in your wedding photography collection, we will work on the album design and photo selection together to ensure it meets your standards.
Please note, no photos or printed wedding album will be provided until payment has been liquidated in full.
No, I don´t. However, I can certainly make suggestions on videographers I have worked with and trust. If you are considering video for your wedding, please make this known when you contact me.
If I work 5 hours or more, I would really appreciate it if you did! Because at the end of the day, I am usually as hungry and thirsty as everyone else. And feeding my appetite will allow me to continue working with the same energy and enthusiasm throughout the day.
The meal does not have to be as your guest menu, as I comprehend you want to keep costs to a minimum. Many caterers offer “vendor meals” as an option.
However, it is very important to inform the caterer or the venue providing the meals that I should be served as early as possible, so that I finish my meal before the guests and can continue shooting.
