Frequently Asked Questions

Wedding

What does your wedding package include?

News for 2016: I offer one package – full day coverage. Following is included:

  • Meeting before the wedding day, on Skype or in person if possible
  • Full online support before and after the wedding
  • Full day coverage, from preparation to party
  • Online slideshow with all the favourites to share with your family and friends
  • All the best photos from the the day in high resolution
  • Mileage within Stockholm
What do you mean with “unlimited hours”?

Being a wedding photographer is a great privilege that I take very seriously with all of my heart, in order to help you preserve some of the most precious memories of this special day with your friends and family. Telling the story unfold is what excites me and I believe that a few images from selected parts of the day never can give a fair image of such an important and unique occasion like a wedding. I don’t want that neither I nor my clients have to count the hours, therefor I offer one package – “unlimited hours” – for weddings. In practice this means that I reserve the whole day for you, from morning to late evening and I’m with you as long as you desire. Usually the day begins in the morning with the preperations and ends when Uncle Bob hits the dance floor.

Do you do destination weddings?

Yes, I love to travel and do weddings all over Sweden and even abroad. Please see my prices for wedding world wide here.For destination weddings travel fees apply, that included flight, rental car and accommodation, so no surprice fees after the wedding day.

Tell me more about the wedding consultation

In short, this is the time where we get to sit down, learn more about each other and whilst putting the action plan together; so that everyone knows what’s going to happen and when. I will let you know all about my work procedures, what’s good to consider if the weather’s not holding up as expected, how to reduce your stress levels and how to make the most of our time together on the day. More importantly, I want to make sure that I have understood all of your wishes and wants perfectly –and that you feel at ease with the timetable we set. Everything will of course be documented to ensure that not one detail is missed nor overlooked.

How much time should we set aside for the portrait portion of the wedding package?

I recommend that you set aside 2 h, to allow time for scenery changes, unfortunate weather and to not feel pressed for time (makes for better photos!).

Do you work with an assistant shooter?

99% of the time I work alone, during my 8 years in business I’m very comfortable doing so. However, if you are having a big wedding a second shooter can be added to the package at an additional fee.

How will our pictures be delivered?

You will receive a link to a online slideshow featuring selected favourite images to show your nearest and dearest. All the images willbe delivered to your home at a USB, but prints may require you to retrieve them from your nearest post office.

Do you shoot digital or analog film?

I shoot digital only as I prefer its speed, security and the possible to push the ISO in dark churches.

When do we receive our pictures?

I normally deliver within 30 days, but during high season it may take longer.

How many pictures will we receive?

My aim is never quantity, but quality and on average I deliver around 50-100 pictures per hour spent at the wedding. All pictures will be delivered edited (note, not air brushed) and delivered in both low resolution (web use) and high resolution (prints).

What if it rains?

At your wedding we work with what we have, and unforeseen weather sometimes produces the most memorable pictures. We will go through our options at the consultation.

Can we order photo albums and prints from you directly?

Yes, I would love to help you out. My background in graphic design allows me to create beautiful customized photo albums. I have hand picked my suppliers for albums and prints over the years that work exclusively with professional photographers. All products are experienced best live, so please let me know if you’d like me to bring any copies to our meet.

Tell me more about the photo albums

The album is designed with your unique story in mind and you may certainly choose your favorite pictures for me to include, should you wish. When it’s complete you’ll receive a link to a digital version that you’ll be able to view and prove before it goes to print. All albums are produced in Europe and have an estimated delivery time of two months.

Is it possible to order albums and prints ourself?

Absolutely. All pictures are delivered in a high-resolution format, perfect for physical products. I recommend using Crimson (choose a non-glossy paper for better looking prints!). Your pictures are delivered in a 2:3 format, suitable for 10×15 cm, 13×19 cm, 15×23 cm, 20×30 cm prints and so on. Remember that it’s often easier to get the frame first. Should you choose Crimson (which I recommend for users in Sweden, www.crimson.se), choose “More settings”, and under “Special” you tick the boxes for “Don’t touch my image” and “Extend image”.

Do you do boudoir shoots?

I certainly do. It’s so much fun and you’ll receive unbelievably beautiful pictures for yourself to enjoy or to share with someone special. Read more here.

Are you insured?

Yes. I have got both equipment and liability insurance.

Have you got backup equipment?

Yes. I have back up equipment and systems in place to ensure that no malfunction, accident or human error will result in the loss of your pictures.

What if you get sick?

If I should be unable to fulfill my duties at your wedding, I will, if possible depending on the circumstances, arrange for an equally experienced photographer to take my place (through my vast contact net). A new photographer will be selected based on agreement with the contracting party and delivery will, in such circumstances, take place under the terms of the present agreement.

What should we consider regarding backup?

Keep a backup drive in case your computer breaks down and keep both your computer and your drive connected to lightning protection to reduce the risk of electronic fairly due to a nearby lightning strike. Taking it further, it’s not a bad idea to have a separate backup elsewhere, should there be a fire or a break in. Storing your images in a cloud-based service is also an option, just make sure you go with a well-known provider and read up on the pros and cons before you sign up.

How can we make a booking?

Please fill out this form and I’ll contact you asap. I’m looking forward to hear about your big day! For wedding bookings, know that I must have received my contract signed and 50% in deposit before I can save the date.

 

 

Portrait

Before your portrait photography session

Decide whether you want to be photographed outdoors or at the studio, as well as what to wear. If you’re having your kids picture taken, make sure they’ve eaten recently and that you bring clothes to change in to if need be (especially if we take photos in the outdoors). I will happily go through your ideas, thoughts and concerns with you prior to your session.

Please see my prices here and more information here.
