Our Process

Consultation

A consultation is an informal meeting to discuss your wedding, ideas, budget, and expectations. Meet the photographers that will photograph your wedding, see our works, and our sample albums. With the consultation, we aim to get to know more about you, the styles that you prefer, and to see how we can serve you best. Most of all, feel free to ask us any questions and concerns that you may have about your wedding photography.

For other clients who are in different states or countries, we normally just exchange emails and they book us online.

RAW

We shoot in RAW format. What is RAW? It is the rawest, unprocessed form of images. Because it is RAW, it contains maximum color and detail information. It has a bigger file size than JPEGs. RAW gives photographers enough data to post-process the images according to our vision. Although it has maximum detail, a RAW file looks flat on the screen. As photographers, we apply our processing skills to bring out the diamond from the RAW. RAW files cannot be printed right away and it requires special softwaresfor viewing. Once we do preliminary processing, we convert the RAW file to JPEG for easy viewing and printing.

Color Correction

Color Correction refers to the enhancements we perform to a photo. This includes enhancements on brightness, contrast, cropping, vignetting, black and white processing, and other adjustments. This enhancement is based on our artistic taste and judgment.

Completion Schedule

One month after your wedding – we deliver all your photos, color corrected and in high resolution ready for printing. This is stored in DVD’s or if you prefer, provide us a portable hard drive to which we save your photos.

If you purchase a wedding album, then select 80 photos from your DVD  we delivered to you, and we will layout the album. Layout takes 6 to 8 weeks. Then we present to you the album layout online. Before we send the layout to Italy for album production, you have to sign off and approve the layout. Then expect another 6 weeks for album delivery.

For engagement sessions – please allow 2 to 4 weeks for the color corrected high resolution images to be delivered to you.

For post-wedding/trash the dress sessions – please allow 2 to 4 weeks for the color corrected high resolution images to be delivered to you.
