QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
everything you need to know
Where are you located?
I am based in Verona, very close to Lake Garda. I can easily travel from my home to Venice, Lake Como, or any other destination in Northern Italy. I am a couple of hours away from Tuscany by car, and the Amalfi Coast or Puglia by plane.
Do you like to travel?
Yes! I love to travel throughout Europe and anywhere else my photography services are desired.
How long will you stay with us?
Normally, I will stay with you from the getting ready until the first dance, and a little more. I have studied and implemented different solutions to meet all of my client’s needs, therefore I can offer various packages. Please, ask for the Investment Guide to receive a complete list of my services.
Do you shoot formal portraits?
Yes, upon your request.
How many photographs will you deliver?
With the full day wedding package, I will deliver a selection containing a minimum of 550 photographs which are perfectly post-produced and delivered at full resolution through an elegant and convenient online service called Pixieset, so you may print them independently with exceptional results. Also, you will receive all the photos of the pre-selection at a resolution of 2048 pixels, suitable for HD monitors and small prints.
Do you use Photoshop?
Normally, I don't: I want my photographs to be beautiful straight out of camera, so I don’t perform extreme post production. I provide some color adjustments with Adobe Lightroom to enhance the natural atmosphere of my images. If there are any special requests, they can be evaluated along with thier cost.
How long does the delivery take?
I normally deliver the digital files within 9 – 12 weeks. If you need them faster, you can purchase the Quick Delivery service (6 weeks) separately.
What’s the average price of your services?
The price of the photo service is €350,00 per hour, à la carte (tax included). I also offer 6, 8 or up-to-11 hours packages, at more competitive prices. Please, feel free to ask for a customized offer.
Do you shoot weddings only?
I offer a variety of services, such as elopements, engagements and family portraits. If you are interested in receiving a quote, please feel free to contact me.
Do you provide video service?
Yes. I work with a team of amazing videographers who use the same approach and style as I do. You can watch some samples on my Vimeo profile.
How can we reserve your services?
I work on a first come, first serve basis. Some couples book my services 18 months or more in advance. Therefore a deposit of min. €500,00 is necessary in order to secure the date. The balance is normally due a couple of weeks before the wedding date.
Are you covered by insurance?
Do you offer training courses for other photographers?
I periodically offer training workshops on lighting, composition, and marketing. I also provide mentoring or private sessions in person or via Skype. If you would like to improve and help your photography style to grow please do not hesitate to contact me!
I am available for a Skype call at anytime, it’s the best way to “break the ice” and to discuss every single detail together. My Skype name is: sergio.photography
