Wedding Event Reporter Hamburg – Questions and Answers
HOW MUCH COSTS A WEDDING COUVERAGE?
There are different price packages that you can book. The packages start at €1999 for 8 Hour Photo coverage and €2199 for 8 hours video coverage. In the main season you can book my service from 8 hour upwards. I normally charge 30% of the total payment at booking and this is not refundable if you desist later. This is to secure the date as I would not be able to accept other assignments once you have booked me. I then require the next payment the day after the wedding day.
HOW LONG TAKES IT TO MAKE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?
A portrait shooting on your wedding day takes about from half an hour to one hour. We go walking for a while and stop here and there to shoot some photos. Everything is very relaxed. It is important that you feel relaxed and happy about your beautiful wedding day. Let the tension calm down and relax. Enjoy this short time together before the events keep going. If it rains or the weather is too unpleasant, we always try to have a B plan, but we can also make really beautiful photos in the rain.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET AND IN WICH WAY?
In total you will receive, depending on the duration of the coverage, between 360 and 700 photos. You will get all photos in full resolution and without watermark, stored on an USB so that you can print and share with your guests.
Shortly after the wedding day you will get a small selection of photos ready for you. A slide show and an on line gallery are also included in every package.
CAN WE RENT A PHOTOBOOTH FROM YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
Of course you can rent a photobooth for the time of the coverage. When I have finished with my work and ready to go, I take the photo booth with me. You can get the prices for the photo booth via the contact form.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE UNTIL WE GET ALL OUR PHOTOS?
Normally you get a smaller selection of about 5 to 15 photos on the next day after your wedding. The rest of the photos will reach you when you are back from your honeymoon. The complete post processing of your photos takes about 6 weeks.
DO YOU SHOW ALL THE WEDDING COUVERAGES ON YOUR SITE?
No, not all. But it is very important for me as a professional to show my work to potential clients.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR YOU TO DELIVER THE FINAL FILM?
I tend to spend a big amount of time going through the footage and carefully crafting my films. I do understand that you are excited to watch your film. That is why I try my best to deliver first the highlight film within 3 months and then the final film within 4 to 6 months.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VIDEO AND FILM?
I do not make videos. I make films. Essentially videos and films are technically almost the same thing. But the films I produce are something that resemble Hollywood movies, with fast cuts, use of different and interesting angles, close-ups, etc. My Films are also crafted to engage the viewer, making use of pacing, beats, time shifting, appropriate soundtrack and narrative. In the end, a film will play with your emotions; you may laugh, you may cry, it can all change in an instant.
In contrast, a video is without much variation, you get an old fashioned linear story. There is no tension and the emotions are not palpable. This may be all right for some people, but it has no creative potential.
WILL MY FILM FEATURE ON YOUR WEBSITE?
Not all films I create will feature on my website. I do not want to overload the viewer. But some films will be showed on my site, it´s very important for a wedding videographer to be able to show her work.
WEDDING EVENT REPORTER HAMBURG – CAN YOU TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN GERMANY OR ABROAD TO TAKE ON MY ASSIGNMENT?
Yes, definitely. I travel through whole Germany, Europe and worldwide. I would love to hear your plans about destination assignments. I would love to cover a wedding in the mountains, on the beach and anywhere in the world. Please get in touch and I can give you more details about prices and arrangements.
HOW DO YOU DRESS ON WEDDINGS?
I don´t want to attract attention on your wedding day and that is why I will be wearing very discreet clothes. Because I am working at your wedding, I dress myself elegant, but also comfortable.
DO YOU SHOOT ALONE OR DO YOU HAVE AN ASSISTANT OR SECOND SHOOTER?
I normally shoot alone. When you book photo and video coverage, I will take my assistant with me, who makes the mayor part of the photos, while I am shooting video. The portraits of you are always done by me, both photo and video. Normally I start with your portrait photos and then I shoot some footage for the film.
WHEN IS THE BETTER TIME TO BOOK YOU?
You should book your photographer or videographer as soon as you get your confirmed date for your wedding. You should not wait too long, because there are not many Saturdays during the main season and the dates get fast booked out.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BECOME SICK ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
In this case and only if I were really sick, I do have some good professional colleagues, that can attend your wedding. I would surely get the replacement for me.
