What happens before, during and after the photoshoot
Do you require any deposit for booking?
No deposit is required: I use a different system to confirm your attendance.
All details will be sent to you by e-mail after we discuss the date, time, duration & locations.
How much in advance should I book?
For the April-September period the best is to contact me at least 6 weeks in advance.
For the rest of the year 2 weeks is usually enough.
What's the best hour for the photoshoot?
Sunrise photo sessions are the best when the weather is sunny,
however the light should match the location: for example, Eiffel Tower looks much better in the morning light.
With clouds every hour is good with any location cause we have a very soft light.
And if it rains?
Usually a gloomy day is not a problem cause the light is still good (even with a small drizzle).
If it showers we can reschedule later in the day or another date depending on your & my availability..
Could you help me finding a Make-Up artist and a hairstylist?
Sure, there are several MUAHs with whom I usually work.
Let me know what you need and I'll give you the contact of an artist that suits you most after you confirm the photo session.
When do I need to pay the rest of the price?
Within 3 days via Bank Transfer* on in cash just after the photo session.
*Transfer charges are not included. Willl communicate you all necessary details by mail.
It's my first time posing...
No worries: during the photoshoot we don't need to do high-fashion posing.
As you noticed, my approach is to let people be as natural as they are, adding some beautiful backgrounds and the play of light.
I can promise that you'll feel relaxed in front of my camera :)
Can I bring props? Balloons, flowers, champagne, cakes etc.
Yes, any kind of additional stuff is welcome! Even Vespa scooter if you want.
Note: all props should be prepared one day in advance cause shops are usually opened after 10AM only*.
I can give you contacts of services that can bring props to your photo session.
* Sunday is a public holiday, so if you run your photo session on Monday, props should be prepared on Saturday.
What else can I bring along with me during the photo session?
I always suggest to have only essentials that can fit in a small bag: phones, wallets, cosmetics.
This I can put in my back-pack and take care of it during the whole photo session.
You can have a bag with outfit/shoes, changing or props that shouldn't have anything valuable inside.
How do we get around?
Most of the locations are situated nearby, so we usually walk.
If you have not very comfortable high-heels, it's better to have a pair of flat shoes.
For the remote locations we use local taxi or Uber*.
*Transport fees are not included in tarifs
How many outfits can I have? Where can I change it?
One hour = one outfit :)
Along our route there are paid public restrooms that are very clean.
Restaurants work as well if we take a coffee/water/wine/whatever.
In case of urgency we can always change in the street, but I usually don't recommend it cause it attracts attention
and the clothes might be dirtied.
Can we make a break during the photoshoot?
Sure, if your break is no longer than 10min for every hour :)
When and how do I receive the edited photos?
Photos are ready within 1 working week.
You will receive a link containing a code to your online private gallery that is available for 1 month.
You can download the photos in three variants:
Web-format for social nets, High-resolution for printing, Original for big canvas print.
What's the size of the images?
High-resolution images are 3600px the longest side, 300dpi, _IMG format (enough for A3 printing).
Canvas start from 3900px the longest side.
For bigger prints you'll have to change the resolution from 300dpi to a smaller one*.
Please check with your printing company.
Could you please send me the RAW files?
No, I don't send raw files.
What does your post-production include?
Shadows and lights correction, adjusting colour, framing, removing spots where possible.
Every image is edited individually cause the light varies and I need to keep the same style for the whole session.
However, I'm extra attentive to every detail during the photo session, so Photoshop retouching is not required in most of cases.
However, could you please apply some Photoshop?
Every additional retouching as the following:
correcting the skin, body shape, deleting people on the background etc.
costs 5€ per photo.
In you private gallery you can make a selection of items that need extra retouching.
Once the payment is received, retouched photos will be sent within 1 working week.
