1. Can you tell me more about you?
My name is Paolo and I am a professional photographer. Photography is my greatest passion and for this reason I am able to catch through photographs your extraordinary love story.
2. Are you the right photographer for us?
There is not a rational answer. Just feel your heart. Of course you should like my pictures and my style in order to capture every single moment of your special day.
3. How do you operate during the ceremony?
I am very discreet because I don’t want to interfere both in the church and at the banquet hall. Bride and groom should only focus on enjoying their moment. I prefer adopting reportage style but I am open to other options. I love portraits and I am available to satisfy all requests.
4. What is the “wedding reportage”?
It is a “spontaneous” way to photograph (this style was born in the USA about 20 years ago). The photographer tells the event without building it. He respects the environment and he is not intrusive. Pictures are natural, spontaneous and not standard. No forced smiles, no artificial poses, no performance anxiety.
5. Will a second photographer be helping you?
Usually yes. He will be my personal assistant. The second photographer will provide new and further framing, creating a captivating and detailed story (above all in the key moments).
6. What kind of equipment do you use?
I use only professional reflex cameras, high quality lenses and accessories. If necessary, I use flash and artificial lights.
7. Will you be following us step by step?
Yes, without doubt. My work starts when you contact me and it finishes on the wedding photo book delivery. I will provide continued support both via email and by phone. I am at your disposal for any questions.
8. By when do we have to book our wedding photo shoot?
The sooner the better. For organizational reasons, I advise you to contact me as soon as possible (several months before your wedding).
9. How does the pictures selection and the book printing work?
Initially you will receive the pictures I selected. You may choose and show them to your friends and relatives. Once you choose your favourite pictures, I deal with the printing of your wedding photo book.
10. Will you give us all the files?
Not all actually. During the wedding day, we take thousands of pictures. After I make a first selection of the best pictures, I will exclude the technically and aesthetically not valid ones. My main purpose is the quality and not the quantity.
11. Will you use our photographs for your website, facebook and social networks?
Usually yes. It is a pleasure to share your wedding pictures and my photographic work on my website www.paoloferrera.it and on social networks like facebook. If you don’t agree, I will not share them on my website and on social networks.
12. How can we share online our wedding pictures?
I perfectly know that both you and your guests can’t wait to live again the magic atmosphere of that extraordinary event. Within two weeks from the event you can share some previews on my Facebook page “Paolo Ferrera studio fotografico”.
13. How long should we wait for our pictures and photo book?
It doesn’t take long time! Waiting time for the delivery (only photographs) is about two or three months but I will do my best to be more efficient. Delivery times can vary according to the type of photo book you choose, its design and printing. I will keep you regularly updated about delivery times.
14. Do you carry out photographic prenuptial sessions?
Of course! Prenuptial session is a good way to know each other and get ready for the wedding.
15. Do you produce also videos?
Absolutely yes. I cooperate with professional videomakers that will provide you with a video as a memory of your ceremony.
16. Is a deposit required? How to pay?
The contract confirms and assures my availability. At the signature of the contract, you will be required to pay a deposit. The remaining amount will be split in two equal payments. The deadlines are: test strips choice and final delivery. I accept cash, bank transfer or credit card. Details will be fixed by the contract.
17. Where do you work?
My working area are Frosinone and Rome but I am also available to move all over Italy and abroad.
