ABOUT THE WEDDING PACKAGE
MEETINGS BEFORE WEDDING
Meet us before wedding is more important for be sure to establish immediately a good feeling. Meetings can happen in your home (I always try to meet the future spouses in the case which they have a little child) or in my office in Grosseto. If you live far away or you are impossible at a meeting in person, we can have a video call on Skype or FaceTime.
The first meeting is a generally discussion on the preliminary ideas concerning the day, on the type of photographic style that you prefer and if you have an idea of the day mood. I will explain the kind of album that we can create and you can choose the most pleasant one and convenient for you and if you are not sure on what you want, I can guide and advise you for a best solution.
The second meeting is usually some week or day before the event, here we examine all the details and we refine the time.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WE RECEIVE?
There are not a limits for the shots during the day, generally we take from 1000 to 2000 photos and after the cleaning of wavy shots and out of focus we arrive in a choice from 400 and 900 photos.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL BE POST-PRODUCED?
Generally, I post-produce the selection that will be print on the album, about 80/100 photos. But if there are particular image that you want me to adjust them just ask me.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE IMAGES?
Generally, I delivery all the photos within a few days after the wedding. A mine selection will help you in the choice and evaluation of definitive shots.
HOW DOES COPYRIGHT WORK, WHAT CAN I DO WITH PHOTOS?
You are free of print and share your images in any shape and modality for personal use. No image will present filigrees or watermarks. We will have a joined copyright on the images then I will also be able to use the photos for promotional purposes unless you tell me you do not want this formula. If you want to send the image to a wedding magazine or blog you are welcome, just remember to make sure they accredit “GIUSEPPE ZANONI PHOTOGRAPHY”. Or you can contact me directly for more details in every single case.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION OF YOUR DAY
HOW MUCH TIME WE HAVE TO TAKE PHOTOS BETWEEN THE CEREMONY AND THE RECEPTION?
Generally, I like to spend with the spouses at least one hour between the ceremony and the reception, excluding travel time. This does not mean that if we need to do the shots in half an hour there are absolutely no problems, I will find a way to rebalance the missing shots during the reception.
DO WE HAVE TO ORGANIZE A MEAL FOR YOU?
The photographer, the eventual assistant and the videographer do not necessarily eat the same dishes of the guests at the bridal lunch, but a meal and a drink are important to keep us going on during the day. The ideal is eaten when also the spouses eat, so we can be ready to photograph when it is needed.
HOW TO ORGANIZE FAMILY SHOTS?
My advice is write a list of family photos that you want make and give the list to a family member that knows all and can gather them for us. This allow to save a big quantity of time and remove a lot of stress to the spouses.
HOW TO MAKE THE PAYMENT?
If you decide to book me as a photographer for your wedding, just send me an email. You will then receive the data to make the transfer of a part of the fee (about 30%) and the related invoice. As soon as the invoice of the reservation is paid, the date is blocked, without the payment of this fee it is not possible to book. The second invoice for the remaining amount will be sent one month before the wedding date and payment is due before this date.
IS YOUR WEBSITE CARBON NEUTRAL?
To be honest this is not a very common question but yes, my site is zero emissions. The energy of the servers to which I am connected with my website comes 100% from renewable sources certified by the Guarantee of Origin (GO).
AND IF YOU WANT AN ALBUM?
As for the albums you can see the specifications in the “The Packages” section. The production process is simple, choose your 80/100 favourite photos and I will perform the post-production and layout. I will send you a draft of the project, so you can see the work and suggest any changes before printing. After the approval of the project, the production takes about 4 weeks. If you want different layouts compared to the parents’ albums you need to pay a supplement. The standard albums consist of 80 pages with a format of 30×40 cm but it is possible to have larger or smaller albums.
MAKE WEDDINGS ALSO IN OTHER COUNTRIES BEYOND ITALY?
I am pleased to make transfers for your wedding wherever you reside, contact me and we will find the best solution for expenses. It’s not as expensive as you think, you do not charge anything for the travel time and there are often many convenient offers for airfare.
CAN I SEE A COMPLETE MARRIAGE THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN?
In the Wedding Stories section or at the end of the Wedding Portfolio page you can find a selection of full weddings.
For any other questions or clarifications contact me and I will answer you as soon as possible.
