Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Uddhav Naik offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


Should we have a "first look"?

Weddings are very personal and just like most events that occur on the day it is something that only you can decide. You can't go wrong either way. 'First look' prior to the ceremony can create a beautiful moment but does the 'first look' as you walk down the aisle. 

Looking for candid/natural wedding photographers in Adelaide area?

If this sounds like you, please drop a comment and I'll check out your portfolio x

Hi!

I would definitely be keen to photograph your wedding! I'm Melbourne based but I am available across Australia. My style is documentary / fine art would perfectly align with your vision. I also have a Summer Special running right now.

I am looking for a Photographer between 1000-2000?

Could someone please help me regarding photography. I am looking for a photographer in the price range of 1000-2000. I am not after a wedding album. I would ideally like the HD edited photos on USB. Thank you :)

Hi!

I would love to help you with this! I'd love to offer you a photography package. It'll be great if I could sit / chat with you both to understand your day. I would like to know a few more details of your wedding to ensure that the package is perfect for you.

Thanks :)

How do I ask my photographer for a partial refund if she was late on the day of the wedding?

Prior to asking for a refund, consider a few things. 

Yes, ask for a partial refund if:

- they missed a crucial moment

- caused you stress due to their lack of punctuality

- if it had a follow on effect on other events of the day

No, don't ask for a partial refund if:

- if they give a great collection of photos for your wedding day which captures the memories in its entirety

- they offered to stay back longer beyond the original agreement

- they offered other discount or a compensation through other means (printing / frames / etc)

Generally, a good photographer would proactively mention how they felt for being late and what they can do to compensate for it. 

Now, after considering the above, if you have decided to ask for a refund, mention it to them in a positive manner. If you go hard and heavy, they may go into a shell and disagree. It's best to have an honest and polite conversation and hear what they have to say. I would then follow it up with an email to make sure you have captured the face to face conversation. If the photographer doesn't align himself with your views, then do consider if the amount of refund you are asking for is worth the staining the entire wedding photo collection with that memory. 

If they behave in an unprofessional manner, definitely do leave a review and let the world know. 

Keep in mind, don't spoil your memories of the day because of this, it would be a real shame. :)

Any tips on what to ask a photographer before booking?

There are many things you could ask a photographer prior to boooking them. Although you might initially contact them via email or mobile, make sure to meet with them personally and ideally with your partner... to make sure they are the right person for you. So... what are the things that you could ask them... ? A few of them I have listed below, in no particular order:

- What is their pricing? This may result in the photographer asking a few questions back. They may not get back with a price to you immediately but it'll set expectations. 

- How many hours would they be present during  the wedding day? Make sure you know when they are going to arrive and leave.

- Who will be doing the wedding day photography? Often enough, in a larger business, the person you meet may not be the one who turns for the wedding photography. So make sure you meet the person who will be capturing your wedding. 

- Do they mind showing an entire final collection of couple of their wedding shoots? Remember, anyone can produce a handful of amazing shots, the trick is to ensure that the quality is prevalent through the entire package. It's no good having 20-30 amazing shots and 400 others which are unedited or unsatisfactory. 

- How many photos would I expect to get? When would I get them? How many would be edited? I would expect all the photos to be edited. The final number could be a range.. generally expect 300-700 for a day and it depends on a number of factors but at least it'll help you understand. Remembering, quality over quantity will go a long way. 

- What do they think of the wedding day itinerary? Get their help and suggestion, although this one is most likely going to be asked after you have selected the photographer. They have photographed many weddings and can definitely help you plan your day. 

- Ask them about their backups / equipment / and process. This one is for your piece of mind more than anything else. If they are happy to be transparent, that's always a good sign. 

These should really help set the conversation and get a guage of  the them as a person and what they have to offer. There are many more questions you can ask.

Have a good day :)
