Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Questions and Answers

Before you hire a wedding photographer, you need to know if their style of taking pictures works with what you envision for your wedding. Here are some important questions to ask any wedding photographer:

Client.-What's your primary style? Posed and formal, relaxed, photojournalistic, creative, artistic, candid, traditional?

Jorge. As a wedding photographer, I cannot say I have a unique style. A wedding photographer must mix photojournalism photography, traditional portraiture for formals, and also artistic photography that is created in post-production.

Client -Do you shoot in color or black and white? Do you shoot in a digital format that can create both color and B&W versions of the same picture?

Jorge. I shoot all the time in a format called RAW. Electronic files can be converted to black and white, sephia, BW & color. Also, we can add some filters in post-production .

Client -What kind of input can we have on the direction of the shoots? Can we give you a shooting list to work from?

Jorge. As a professional photographer, I can lead you about the pictures you may have as well as a list of wedding photographs. You also can provide a list of the pictures you want.


Client -Are you the wedding photographer who will actually take our pictures? If not, can we meet the person who will be?

Jorge. Yes, I am the wedding photographer.


Client-Can we meet any assistants who will also be present during our photography session?

Jorge - Yes, you can meet Amparo, she is my assistant and wife. We work together and she helps not only me but the bride, groom, and the whole wedding party.


Client -How many times have you worked specifically as a wedding photographer? How many were similar to the size and formality of our wedding?

Jorge - I have shot dozens of weddings in different sizes, from very private to big ones with more than 400 guests.


Client -How many other events do you photograph per day?

Jorge - I shoot just one event per day.


Client -What kind of equipment will you bring with you? How intrusive lighting, tripods, and other equipment will be?

Jorge - I handle only Nikon Cameras and lenses: Nikon D3s, Nikon D700 and Nikon D200; lens Nikon 17-55MM f/2.8, Nikon 70-200MM f/2.8, Nikon 24-70MM F/2.8, Nikon 50MM f/1.4; Nikon 18-55MM f/3.5, Nikon 55-200 f/3.5; Flash Nikon B-900 and Flash Nikon B-910. I use two cameras on me most of the time and I do not use tripods, strobes or lights at your wedding, unless it is too dark in which case we have a video light. When the customer request photo-journalistic style, we are imperceptible.


Client -Do you process your own pictures?

Customer- Yes. All pictures are processed and retouched in photoshop.


Client.-Can we buy digital pictures from you?

Jorge - Yes, you can buy digital pictures on-line through your private gallery, by email or by telephone.
