Q: What kind of camera do you use?
A: I shoot with a Nikon D800 and D4, and I use primarily prime lenses.
Q: How many final images will we receive? Do we choose which final images we get?
A: When you hire your wedding photographer, you are entrusting him/her to tell the story of your day. And so usually the final images are chosen by the photographer. That being said we provide an online gallery where all the picture are uploaded and our clients can choose their favourite pictures. For a wedding day of 8 to 10 hours, on average our clients will receive between 350 – 550 final images. That said, these numbers are an approximation only. We believe in quality over quantity and we will provide you with as many photos as it takes to tell your story.
Q: Are the images we receive edited? And what kind of post processing do you do?
A: Certainly, all the images you receive will be edited. You will receive ready-to-print, high-resolution JPEG files. The post processing we do includes but is not limited to exposure, white balance, colour, contrast, and saturation.
Q: What about black and white photos? Will we get any?
A: Yes there will be various black & white photos from your wedding day and. For any black and white photo you receive, you will receive the colour version as well.
Q: Will the final images we receive have watermarks?
A: No the final images won’t have any watermarks on them. We know some photographers may opt to do that, but it’s not something we do.
Q: When will we get our photos?
A: Within 4 – 6 weeks after your wedding. Or 2 – 3 weeks for an engagement session.
Q: Do you have back up gear?
A: Yes we do. We have a back up camera body, various lenses and lots of memory cards.
Q: Do we have to have a second photographer at the wedding?
A: No you don’t have to! We offer solo coverage for smaller, more intimate weddings. However, a second photographer is essential for a complete narrative of your day if you have a wedding with more guests. One would photograph the groom’s prep while the other would photograph the bride’s prep (sometimes we photograph them together, in which case they’d provide a different perspective still). They would cover different angles during portrait time, candids, and guests’ reactions during the ceremony and reception. And generally catching things that one may miss.
Q: What is the best way to inquire?
Q: Do you work internationally?
A: Yes we do! We love to travel and are a big fan of destination weddings. Send us an email for more inquiry.
Q: Do we have to do engagement photos?
A: No you don’t. Though an engagement session is a great way for the couple to get comfortable with us and great for us to get to know each other. They are also especially helpful for the camera shy.
Q: How do we book?
A: Send us an email at info[at]digitalstudiolucca.com or fill out the contact form and we’ll go from there. To secure a date, we require a signed agreement and a deposit. We can’t hold any dates without those two things.
Q: Do you charge for travel?
A: Our photography coverage includes travel for up to a 100km radius from where we're based. There is a small charge for additional km’s. For out of province and destination weddings, send us an email and we can respond accordingly!
Q: Can I purchase a session as a gift?
A: Most definitely. Email us and we can work out the details.
