Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most frequently asked questions I get, take a minute to read through all the lists and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions!

Before the Photoshoot

We have gone to great lengths to make sure our booking process is easy and convenient. A retainer of 50% of your chosen package due in order to secure your date. The retainer fee is non-refundable. For the wedding, the remaining balance will need to be finalized 2 weeks prior to your wedding date, for family or engagement the final payment should be made on the day of the photoshoot by cash.

We accept payment via Paypal or direct bank transfer. We’ll send all the details along with the invoice when you have confirm the booking.

The best time for photo session is during the golden hours sunset/sunrise (6AM-10AM or 3PM-7PM) to avoid harsh light as Bali is a tropical island which close to the horizon.

Bali has a wet season during the month of November to February. However even in the wet monsoon, in this tropical paradise, it is still likely it will be sunny for a good part of the day.

I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it’s just light rain we will wait until the rain stop. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot and I can reschedule (or ruin my gear), then we totally will!

We can also be creative with the rains! Our camera is water-sealed, and so are we, so we are happy to shoot in the rain and it won’t affect how many photos you receive. We pretty much have it covered, the rest is up to you!

For most of wedding photoshoot, we are booked a year in advance. For engagement or prewedding 3 months in advance is still possible. But the best timing is as soon as possible! Chances are there other couples interested in your date as well I’d hate not to available on your chosen date.

After the Photoshoot

A common question that quickly follows after the photoshoot day is an email or message asking where your photos are and when will you get to see them. Of course, the excitement of seeing your beautiful photos makes us impatient and question what the hell we are waiting for.

At each session we captured around 3000 – 7000 shots and each image needs to be carefully selected to tell the story of your day. Then there is the editing, cropping photos, adjusting the color balance to create beautiful light and airy result. There is a lot more work to be done once the photos are captured. This whole process will take from 2 weeks for a short session and 4 – 6 weeks for a longer session. Once completed, your collection of images will become available in your personal gallery and will include a mixture of color and black and white images.

If you chose the package that covers more than 8 hours session, full-resolution images (300dpi) are delivered on a custom made USB drive approximately 2 weeks after your gallery is made available. This includes about 6000 digital negative images.

If you purchased our album with your package then this will take additional time too. Once the photos edited, we will design the layout to fit into an album that telling a story of your day. We pick the best selection of photos highlighting the key moments. Once done we will send the layout for your approval. When everything is done then it needs to be sent away for printing. It will need around 2 weeks to print the album.

We only do a basic exposure, brightness-contrast, cropping, color correction, and toning. We are unable to do advance digital imaging editing, for example, changing the shape of the body.

Yes! Of course, we’d love to feature your wedding or love stories on our blog!
