This is where we have answered the most common questions prospective our clients might have. It’s a good idea to cover things like your delivery policy, quality info, working ethics, Terms and conditions etc. Please check out the questions below.
Do you do destination weddings?
We are addicted to travelling and telling Stories around the globe in exchange of love. Destination weddings are a chance for us to experiment and make magical creative imagery for the wildly in love. We are avid travelers, so we like to hop on a plane whenever we can. So , no place is off our grid. Write to us , and we can work out some awesome deals, to make it happen just for you.
When do the pictures/video get delivered?
We would have you you swooning with a set of ‘sneak peeks’ within a couple of days of your wedding. However, the fruit of patience is always sweeter. Our creative commitment to you extends well beyond your wedding day. It generally takes us about 8 to 12 weeks to artistically master your images, prepare your web gallery, produce your slideshow and design your album (which will arrive, along with your USB drive, 6-8 weeks after final design approval).
What all services do you provide?
We create Candid, Contemporary , Fine-art, Photo journalistic , and Editorial based Bridal shoots, Basic wedding videography and Cinematic wedding films, Creative Pre/Post wedding/Romantic/Lifestyle Portraiture shoots, Premium coffee table books. WOWDINGS is quite talented to serve you with awesomeness.
What is the booking procedure?
The booking procedure is a very simple one which involves:
a) Filling in the booking form , b)Clarifying the costs , c) Paying the 50% deposit to secure the wedding day booking.
Our packages are all mentioned in the Pricing section of this page.
How far in advance should I book your services?
With the wedding season drawing near, our teams availability gets reduced at an exponential rate . Couples who have an eye specifically for our work, thus books us atleast 1 to 2 years before, to ensure , they save a later heartburn.
If you have left things , a little closer to the wire . Please drop us an email with your date and who knows, you might get lucky
Do you charge extra for outstation assignments?
No. Our Photography and Filming charges remain the same . However our travel charges , accomodation , and the meals for the assignment , for which we have been engaged, needs to be paid separately by the clients, which is not included in the photography/filming cost .
How do I hire you for the event?
Easy. Just input
and I’ll arrange an opportunity for the three of us to get to know each other and ensure that we’re a perfect match. For destination weddings, everything can be done online. It takes ten minutes, after which you can count on us to be anywhere in the world, ready to photograph your special day.
Do you shoot alone or you have a team?
We have our complete in-house team, which gives us the freedom for successfully take care of all your wedding reportage needs , through photography and cinematography . WOWDINGS is a one-stop-shop for all you will ever need to create a beautiful single cohesive story of your wedding.
Do you shoot both sides of a wedding?
Yes we do. Infact , we prefer shooting both sides of the wedding , since for you , as a client , to have two separate teams to cover essentially the same thing, will be a waste of resources, and for us , as a team, it is much easier to manage our own crew , rather than co-ordinating with some different team on the wedding day , as our team members have developed a thorough understanding of our workmode over the years , by working together , so that leaves no chance of an internal conflict , or a compromised output anywhere.
Our wedding is spanning over 4 days. Of which the first two days doesn’t have much workload . Will you charge me for half-day , or on a hourly basis , for those two days ?
No, we accept full day’s payment.
The reason being this :
Once we book our date for you , we turn down all queries for that day , just to ensure , we and our equipment are available all the time and we give you the best quality of work possible. Therefore , even if you engage us for a few hours , the rest of the day goes for a waste , for our team .
Do you provide wedding albums with your package?
Wedding album is a crucial and essential final part of a wedding photo project. We have our own custom designed , contemporary and classy digital coffee table photo-books , and specifications and other relevant details pertaining to the album is mentioned in the Pricing section.
Do you offer wedding video /cinematography services ? I need a complete solution under one roof.
Yes we do beautiful cinematic wedding films to go with your unique photostory . Please check them out at , www.wowdings.com/films.
Would you provide me with the complete dump of all the photos taken from the wedding?
We usually do not provide unedited data. That is like providing the broken egg shells from the ingredients , which were used to make a cake. The finished cake provides the true expertise of the chef. Similarly , uncooked data , does not represent a photographer’s true vision, the vision n perspective that you are hiring us for. The amount of edited works that would be part of the final delivery is itself of mammoth proportions for anyone to go through, and cherish for life. As long as a photo is good and is deliverable , theres no reason why we would , not give you the photo.The photos which are rejected are usually , with bad expressions, distracting elements in the frame , poor lighting , duplicates, out of focus ones and so on… such photos are usually an integral part of candid photography. This wouldn’t happen in “posed” photography. Damaged pictures are useless to everyone , and are a huge waste of resources ( 200 to 300 Gigabytes !) to deliver to someone. Whether or not unedited data will be given is therefore something discussed over phone.
Who owns the copyright of the photographs / film?
As the creators , we own the copyright / author rights to the photos and the film. However , you own the full usage rights to the photos , which essentially means you can take more prints of them, share the photos online , and send them to your relatives. However , you cannot sell them .
Is there any hidden cost additional to the total payable amount of the package prices?
The package charges are one time payments , and no hidden costs or other are taxes attached to the lumpsum. All costs of the deliverables are also included in the package value.
Are your wedding photography/cinematography packages negotiable?
Just as this is true for every product in the world that,every price has a value attached to it , outstanding quality of wedding photography also comes for a premium price . If we are expected to maintain the same standard of work profile , as you see in this website , we are afraid the price cannot be negotiated. However , we can always discuss your particular requirement , and see , if we can work out something within your budget , by varying the deliverables etc or taking in consideration the work schedule and our own production cost.
