QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
YOU’RE FROM LIECHTENSTEIN. IS THAT AN OWN COUNTRY?
First, Liechtenstein is so tiny that even customs officers at airports occasionally don’t know it and accuse us to have a counterfeit passport. So I’m used to the fact that many, many people don’t know Liechtenstein. Here are some short facts about it: It’s one of the smallest countries in the world located in the middle of Europe between Austria and Switzerland. We have only about 37000 inhabitants, no airport and no freeways. So it’s kind of reasonable that people don’t know it.
DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS ABROAD?
Yeah, of course! I love to travel (you can read a few more words under „travel“) and I love to visit new places, meet different cultures and make new experiences. So just drop me a message if you have plans anywhere in the world.
WHEN SHOULD WE INQUIRE YOU?
Ideally you contact me at least one year before the wedding, probably even a little bit earlier, because summer weekends are normally booked out during fall the year before.
NORMALLY YOU’RE AT A WEDDING FOR TEN HOURS. DO YOU ALSO STAY LONGER?
Exactly. And within ten hours I can capture most of what’s happening throughout the day. Beginning with the thrill of anticipation in the morning and ending with some weird dance moves at night. However, if you want me to stay longer I’d stay longer for sure and capture even more moments for you.
HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD WE PLAN FOR PORTRAITS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
Preferably? Zero. Because this is not what matters the most on your wedding day, and even less years after the wedding. Better spend the – already short – time with your families and friends and let me capture all the moments right the way they happen.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET?
Out of a ten hour reportage you normally get something around five hundred photos and some more from the after wedding shoot. But to speak frankly, I don’t really care about fixed amounts of photos and neither do I commit myself to them. Just because every wedding is unique and a limited number of photos wouldn’t live up to that fact. However, you always get largely enough photos to recreate the story of your big day and mostly even more than five hundred.
WHEN DO WE NORMALLY GET OUR PHOTOS?
Normally you can hold your photos in your hands about one month after the wedding. During summer, when it’s quite busy, it can take a little longer though. But I’ll always do my best not only to deliver carefully processed images but also faster than promised.
WE LOVE COLOR BUT BLACK AND WHITE TOO. DO WE GET BOTH?
You always get a mix of colored and black and white images, whereby the colored ones normally are in the majority. However, if you want one of them in color or in black and white afterwards it’s not a problem at all and you will get it.
COULD YOU HELP US WHEN WE LOOSE OUR PHOTOS?
Absolutely! By this time I’ve become kind of a serious backup freak that saves every image two or even three times. So if you loose your photos there’s a really high chance of getting them back from me.
If you have more questions that aren’t listed here, just drop me a message and I’ll answer your questions with pleasure.
