Have you ever worked at my wedding site before? If not, do you plan to check it out in advance?

We had the pleasure of working at numerous wedding locations in the Bandung and Jakarta area. If your location is a place that we did not had the pleasure of working before at it, we do a scouting of the location, prior to the event to find proper locations for your wedding and find out the equipment that we will require to bring to make sure that we are ready for any situations.

What time will you arrive at the site?

We’ll arrive a few hours before the wedding ceremony to do some preparation and to do a bride make over photo session.

If my event lasts longer than expected, will you stay? Is there an additional charge?

We are not time restricted and we do want to make sure that we capture your day completely and not make you stress about the timeline. In the case that the wedding lasts longer than expected, we will stay and ask for your permission to keep photographing it. There is not a charge for additional time.

Is it okay if other people take photos while you’re taking photo?

That’s okay. Many photographers will not allow this and have strict rules about what photos family or guest take at any stage during the day. We are generally happy to have your guests shoot over our shoulder or take other photos as long as they don’t interfere with our work.

We don’t like posing! Will that be a problem?

Not at all. We love photographing people in fun/silly/romantic poses, but also really thrive on capturing people being their natural selves – laughing, chatting, gettin’ down on the dance floor… We’ll capture the honest moments that happen through your day (that’s the really good stuff, anyway).
