Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Blank and white, sepia, edgy toning and textures
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
All types of lighting conditions but we prefer to take advantage of available light. Available light is the type of light that brings the best looking more natural images. We try to get the best out of the light available and use strobes as last resource.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital 100%
How many photographers do you work with?
Depends on the number of guests
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Of course!!!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Absolutely not!!! I am committed to provide personalized attention, to achieve that very few wedding are booked per year. The wedding is probably 10 to 12 hours the most but the post production and enhancement of the images up to our standards take at least 2 weeks of intensive work in front of the computer. We do not provide images without carefully select, color correct, retouch and in many of the images artistically enhance with textures, edgy colors, conversion to black and white, sepia or other techniques. (every image receiving the artistic treatment is carefully edited, which is a craft that takes several minutes if not hours per image. We have before and after available)
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, someone carefully selected up to my standards.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Up to date, last technology Canon digital SLR bodies. Best quality available Canon lenses (zoom and prime). Canon last generation strobes.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We bring one main equipment and one back-up equipment just in case. In weddings there is no second chances.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full day but we have an hourly rate available in case extra coverage is required or budget is an issue (yes, we are flexible)
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes I am available because only one wedding is booked per day. The additional coverage hourly rate is $250. Rehearsal dinner, trash the dress, bridal sessions or boudoir sessions are charged from $350.00 and per event not per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Probably just a small one. Depending on the evolution of the event. I really rather be shooting.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes. Air fare in coach, hotel 3 star or up at least one day before the event (just in case, delays happen), 2 meals per day. Just the bare bone basic. Nothing fancy but we need to be safe and comfortable.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Three weeks. Except when travel abroad could take a couple of days more.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Website on-line through Pictage
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The event is available for 3 months and proofs pictures or proof books are available to order from the website
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. Is not me is the copyright law which says that.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, but only if the couple signs a model release authorizing the exclusive use of the pictures for self promotion purposes
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, we provide the digital negative files as shoot out of the camera and the retouched ones. Please note that we do some intensive enhancement and retouching for printing, album and canvas purposes.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, Pictage offers online gallery format with slideshow capabilities and online ordering of different printed products and DVDs, therefore your family and friend wherever they are can place orders online 24/7 at the best quality with very fair rates.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Leather coffee table style albums(simple but elegant). Italian fine leather albums (very sophisticated). Hand made italian aged leather with hand made paper (very exclusive, really a work of art)
When will the client get the final album?
Our books are a selection of Italian made or hand made albums. That takes time but we are confident that you will have your album in 8 to 10 weeks after you release the final design. Compared with the six months standard of the industry this is an excellent turn around time.

Fabian is simply fantastic. He is so nice, polite, and professional, we really enjoyed all our time spent with him. He took our engagement photos as well, and had a blast doing it!

His photographic eye is very artistic, so you won't end up with the same boring and low quality snapshots that less qualified photographers give you. Also, he prefers to blend into the background, making sure you enjoy your day without too many posed shots, which we felt would be redundant over a while. He captured the moments perfectly, and the emotion and mood can really be felt through his photos.

Needless to say, but we are very picky with our photos and Fabian delivered. We only hope that this review will help not only him, but others wishing to get true value through their photographer.
