Wedding FAQs

 

Wedding Day Coverage:

Massafelli Photography begins with the preparations images and captures the moments through the day. We start 2 hours before the ceremony up to 4 songs after The first dance of photography by Wanderley Massafelli. We have different coverages packages, however, for the full day coverage, the most popular among brides, they don’t have to think about limits of hours during the day and the still getting an amazing wedding StoryBook, ( 20×30 cm or 30x20cm) or (25×35 or 35x25cm) with 20 spreads/40pages up with 30 spreads/60pages depending on the package you choose.
Please feel free to email us on all types of wedding coverage.

-All packages include the following:

– A pre-wedding meeting to discuss the details and the itinerary of the day.

– An assistant with professional gear will be at the wedding helping throughout the event.

– A web gallery to choose your pictures and album layout.

– All images must be processed for colour correction and contrast or they would be flat and lifeless.
Additionally, we give extra attention to our images to add our own custom enhancements to represent our artistic style.

– All the packages include the same attention and professional services.

Enquiries and Appointments?

We have a range of display work and products which you’re welcome to view. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.

Can we give you a list of the images we want?

Other than the family groupings, no. It is very helpful to know what important relatives and friends are coming to your day, and if any events bear special significance, but repeated requests for posed images and having Wanderley work “from a checklist” is counterproductive to the work you’ve seen here on his website. but please understand that Wanderley generally will capture those images naturally.
Providing a very long list of groupings or high school friends or extended family at the reception will result in a lesser amount of documentary coverage and more time spent rounding up guests to check the groupings off of a list.

Confirming Your Booking?

Our services are confirmed upon receipt of your booking deposit and signed a contract.

Forms of Payment?

We accept cash or bank transfer.

How far in advance should I book?

Do remember that Fridays and Saturdays are the most popular wedding days throughout the year, so it’s advisable to inquire early. Additionally, for the peak seasons (May through to October) we receive many bookings more than 12 months in advance. As we cannot hold a date without a booking confirmation, we recommend that you inquire as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Turn around Times?

Your collection of proof images will be available within 2-4 weeks of your wedding date.

Once you have signed off on your final album design, production is approximately 4 weeks from our supplier.

Equipment?

We use professional Canon series digital SLR camera bodies and lenses, including backup equipment.

 How many images do you take?

Minimum of 300 up to  700 images it depends on the coverage you choose.

Do you retouch your images?

All images must be processed for colour correction and contrast or they would be flat and lifeless. Additionally, we give extra attention to our images to add our own custom enhancements to represent our artistic style.                                                                                       I’m a photographer, not a retoucher. Photoshop only when really necessary due problems with dirty locations, although very minimal.
we are all beautiful in our own ways. Let’s be ourselves!

Wedding Jargon: Sides, Leaves, Spreads, Pages..?!

When enquiring with potential wedding photographers, be sure to get clarification on the inclusions in any albums or books, as the language can be unintentionally misleading.

Do you travel?

Yes, we regularly travel to Ireland and Europe for photographic work. We aim to keep all costs associated with travel and accommodation as reasonable as possible.

Whether you’re enquiring from outside of Ireland or are an Irish couple wishing us to travel to your destination wedding, please contact us to discuss your needs.

Family group pictures.
We recommend doing immediate family only right after the ceremony (parents, siblings, grandparents, wedding party). If you have bigger groups, do them at the reception right after the cake cutting. Just have the DJ or band make an announcement.
You will have the traditional and the funny ones depending on each couple.
