INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Absolutely! Whether it's low light or too much light, we are able to work with what we get... Light is what makes a picture and instead of "finding locations", we tend to "find the light" and this approach is what helps us produce award winning images :-)
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
How many photographers do you work with?
Up to three in addition to an assistant.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes! All photography coverage is lead by our creative lead, Raheel Gauba.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We only book a single wedding per day. There is a rare chance that we may accept two weddings on a single weekend but never on a single day!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have a fantastic network of photographers that we can call upon in case of an emergency.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
As professional photographers in Charleston, we invest in the best possible equipment available to wedding photographers - Multiple Canon 5d Mark III's, a collection of L series lenses, over 200Gb of memory cards, the latest radio triggered speedlites, diffusers, reflectors etc. etc.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We offer both types of coverage options to suit our brides needs!
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Unless you hired us on an hourly basis, which is rare, there are NO extra charges with full day coverages! The peace of mind for our couples is what we aim for.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We ask that our couples provide our team with a meal for the event. Feeding us ensures that we stay active, charged up with plenty of energy for the dance floor :-) After an entire day of non-stop coverage, there is a slight chance of us collapsing of starvation by the end of the day :-)
 
 We prefer to be fed when you and your guests are eating, not afterwards, because when you and your guests are eating, you probably don't want to be photographed. And when you're done, we want to be done as well to continue your coverage!
Do you charge for travel?
We do not charge any fees for travel, however, we ask our clients to cover mileage/air-fare, meals and accommodations for non-local weddings.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We retain the rights as well as grant our couple shared rights!
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
From time to time we submit our work in major online and print publications and chances are your wedding may get featured in popular online or print publications!
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes we do!
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes!
What kind of albums do you offer?
All books are thoughtfully designed by Raheel Gauba and are manufactured by hand in Italy. We use Graphistudio as our album manufacturer.

We set out to find the best photographer in Charleston- period. We planned a very small and exclusive wedding, but didn't want to compromise at all on the pictures. My wife is an amateur photographer and really notices the difference between "good" pictures and the sort of images that capture true emotion, tell a story, and are artistic.

When we met with Raheel from Fia Forever we immediately hit it off. He is a very friendly soul with a big heart and instant likeability. He brought wedding albums that he had done for others and we were blown away with his artistic talent and creativity displayed in these books. We both agreed that his pictures were the best that we had seen and knew we wanted him to document our ceremony.
Raheel spent all day with us on our wedding day and was full of creative ideas for photos. Our pictures turned out AMAZING. We couldn't be happier with the results.

We are both happy that Raheel was our photographer and now a friend!

Fia Forever is absolutely amazing! BOOK THEM NOW!!! Photography is so important, because your special day will go by SO quick, trust me! I feel in love with Fia Forever's photography before I even met my husband! Two and a half years later, we are now happily married and have such wonderful pictures from our engagement sessions and wedding. I wanted unique, artistic photos that capture the emotions throughout our engagement session and our special day, and that's exactly what we received!

Fia Forever Photography has the best wedding photographers that you can ever find! Seriously. We signed a contract with them even before we decided on the date, venue, wedding planner, etc. because we were so impressed with their work. We never regretted this decision. They are very creative, and they are also very personable. Raheel is nice, respectful, and professional - he was able to coordinate our multilingual wedding in the best way. We had so many people telling us that we had the best wedding photographer they had ever seen!

My husband and I were married February 22, 2013 in Charleston and we were blown away by the quality of service we received from Fia Forever! Our pictures are completely amazing, they look like something out of a magazine. From the first time we spoke to Raheel it felt like we were instant friends. He was always so quick to get back to us if we had any questions about anything. On the day of the wedding his professionalism was top-notch and he was also just a joy to have around to share our day with! Our pictures though... I cannot say enough about them. We've probably looked through them a hundred times and each time we are equally as blown away as the first time we saw them. I couldn't imagine having anyone else shoot our wedding. I would recommend Fia Forever to everyone!

We asked Fia Forever to travel with us to Tuscany to capture our wedding and all of the events leading up to it. We had seen their past work and thought it was exceptional, so the decision was an easy one for us. Fortunately, Raheel agreed to join us and did not disappoint! The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and we honestly could not have asked for anything better. Raheel captured so many special and beautiful moments - he is truly a passionate, gifted professional and such a joy to work with!

We are happy to be a reference, as well as talk with anyone who is planning a destination wedding.

Being an artist myself, I had very high expectations for my photographer. After seeing Fia Forever's website and portfolio, I knew I wanted to hire them immediately for their incredible skill. Throughout the course of the past year, however, I have been consistently impressed with their courtesy, responsiveness, warmth, and kindness. They were unobtrusive during the event yet managed to get so many incredible shots that I was completely unaware of them taking. I was really hoping for a very photojournalistic style - candids, candids, candids - and they undoubtedly delivered more than I could have ever hoped for. I cannot rave about Raheel and Maryam enough!
