DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SHOOTS OR WEDDINGS?
Although Maciej is primarily a wedding photographer in Costa Rica, we absolutely love to travel. Nothing is more exciting than heading off to another country to shoot abroad. We absolutely love experiencing new places and cultures.
WE’RE PLANNING THINGS FAR IN ADVANCE. HOW SOON CAN WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR SHOOT?
We prefer to limit bookings to one year in advance in order to ensure accuracy with pricing and availability. We do make exceptions every now and then. The sooner you book, the better, as we have limited availability and our calendar fills up quickly.
HOW DO WE SECURE THE DATE WITH YOU?
To secure the date with us, we require our booking fee and a signed copy of the Photography Contract. It does take a while to fill out all the forms so we accept the booking fee as the same binding.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU GIVE US ON THE USB DRIVE?
We do not limit the amount of images that we give you on the USB Drive. We will always give you the most photos possible.
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU NEED FOR PHOTOS?
Reception Decor: 30 minutes. Its best to do the decor shots before we start with the brides and grooms preparations so that your guest wont have to wait to enter the reception. You just need to make sure that your decor company is finished with the reception when our coverage starts.
Grooms Preparations: 60 minutes. We ask our gents to make sure they aren’t dressed when we arrive as we will love photographing the “getting ready” process.
Brides Preparations: 90 minutes. We ask our brides to time their makeup artist finishes their makeup about 20 minutes after we arrive, as then we can maximise time spent with the bride.
Family & Group Shots: 30 minutes. This depends on the size of your family and the number of guests.
Creative Shoot: 60-90 minutes. We do shoot quite quickly, but it is nice to have more than hour so we can spend some time making some truly memorable photos.
Reception: This is completely up to our couples – we just need the times of the formalities before the wedding.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
We are based in San Jose, Costa Rica and are available Worldwide for shoots.
WHAT TIME SHOULD WE SCHEDULE OUR WEDDING CEREMONY?
If you want to get the best creative photos, its a great idea to schedule your wedding ceremony to finish about an hour and a half to two hours before sunset on your wedding day. You can refer to http://www.timeanddate.com to check sunset times on the day of your wedding. Or you can just ask us!
CAN YOU RECOMMEND A VIDEOGRAPHER?
Yes, we can! We’ve worked many times with our friends, videographers in Costa Rica and we just love them. They produce amazing work and are such a pleasure to work with.
