Frequently asked questions
What is your style of photography?
It’s probably easier to say what I’m not.
Weddings are a day of romantic moments and joyful experiences, not forced poses and endless staged pictures (You definitely want a few great group shots of family and friends though). I will shoot your wedding in a relaxed photojournalistic style. The shots will be natural and candid leaving you with a record of the true happy day.
I have a genuine passion for Weddings and all that that entails: the emotions, the family bonds and the celebration. It is important for me to ensure you enjoy your big day with your family and friends while I document the day as it naturally unfolds.
Should we do an engagement shoot?
That’s entirely up to you. I offer this service as I feel it’s a great opportunity to get to know one another and to understand the style and vibe you are looking for prior to the big day.
What are you like on the day?
Relaxed, fun, approachable and most importantly, calm. My goal is to bring your wedding story to life but not intrude on the most special of days. With a bit of luck, you won’t even know I’m there.
How long should we have you for?
There are several factors to take into account here, but the key ones are the locations you will be at throughout the day, the travel time between venues and the style of the final images. A simple way to calculate this is to work out the beginning and the end. What is the first image you want recorded? i.e getting ready for the wedding and what is the last image you want? i.e leaving the reception. I find this normally adds up to between 8 to 10 hours and will give you a complete story of the wedding.
Should we do Wedding photos before the ceremony?
This all depends on the season the wedding is being held in and the time of day. If it’s a winter ceremony and later in the day, we may well run out of light, so I would strongly recommend photos before. On the other hand, if it’s a summer celebration where the light (and heat) can be a bit harsh from late morning to late afternoon I would counsel you to have the photos afterward for the improved lighting and the comfort of your guests.
How much time should I set aside for family/portrait photos?
There is no exact science to this. Obviously the larger the family the longer it will take. I try not to rush these important memories, as this tends to give staged and very unnatural pictures. The photos tend to be done between the service and the reception and can take up to one and a half hours, so it’s important to factor this in, especially if you are also planning a receiving line at your reception.
Should we have an unplugged Wedding?
I highly recommend that you have an unplugged wedding. You've already got professional photographers and videographers capturing your day and I'm sure you want your guests to savor the moment.
What is the population of Slovakia?
Well that’s a bit random, but seeing as you asked, about 5.5 million minus 1 because he’s in Bondi.
Are there any famous people named ‘Ludo’?
Not really, but give me time.
Can I get the raw footage?
No, I do not supply the RAW footage. Due to creative style I don’t film a minute by minute record of your day but instead I film many short 5-20 second snippets, moments and details which are then combined together to create your final wedding film.
When will I receive my film?
Post-production and editing generally takes 10-12 weeks to complete, however this can be longer during peak periods.
How long will our highlight film be?
The running time we give are just approximates. The length of the film is dependent on what happens on the actual wedding day.
3-5mins for a wedding up to 8hrs
5-8mins for a full day wedding
Do you offer drone footage?
Yes I love to include aerial footage of the scenery & surrounding area whenever I can, this is dependant on the location & weather on the day though.
