FAQ

If you are an adventurous person who doesn’t take yourself too seriously. Doesn’t mind getting a little dirty, and is spontaneous by nature, then I believe we can have a good cooperation. This experience can be fun for both of us, resulting in a photo session in pursuit of magic, without overly posing, capturing the beauty of the moment without pretending to be anything but your authentic self. My best clients love the beauty of the simplicity of somewhat wild locations and the minimalist indoor studio photo-shootings as well. They see photographers and their vision as an investment in their memories that will last forever. As a photographer, I love the ocean, the beauty and effortlessness of the wilderness, nature and its delicate colors, loose hair, and neutral yet sensual apparel. Honesty, raw emotion, authenticity, the innocence of love. That’s what my photography is all about.

Are we a good fit?

I'd like to say that I'm a 'full-range' photographer. I mostly do couple, family, and brand sessions but I also do pre-wedding, engagements, single portraits, and lifestyle photography. If you have a different offer for me, feel free to contact me and I believe I'll come up with something.

What types of sessions do you offer?

Do you shoot weddings?

I only do elopements. If you like my work and think my style would suit you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd love to be a part of your story.

When should I have my photo session?

Outdoor sessions are usually held 2 hours before sunset or midday if it's cloudy. Sunny midday should be avoided. We can also do a photoshoot in the early morning when the sun is still not high. Home sessions are more likely to be held in the morning or midday.

Do you do retouching?

I won't retouch your face, whiten your teeth or make you look slimmer. I will make some simple corrections only if something is extremely obtrusive to the image.

When will I receive my images?

Usually, I send you a few previews within 24 hours, and deliver the full edited gallery three weeks after the session.

How many images do I get after the session?

The number of images depends on the package you choose. The rest of images from your online gallery will be available for purchase at additional prices. You can purchase as many photos as you want.

What should I wear?

I always suggest to wear something neutral. Don't be matchy, but try to be harmonized. Although, the most important thing is to feel comfortable. You should avoid shirts with huge images (logos, characters) as they are often a distraction. I love to talk about outfits! Feel free to send me photos of the clothes you are hesitating about and I'll be more than happy to help you.

What's the difference between printing rights and copyrights?

All my sessions include full printing rights to all edited images. You can print them for personal use, post them on social media, share them with family and friends. What you cannot do is - alter, edit or crop the images in any way, enter competitions for money, sell them. Copyright means that you are the author of the work you produce and have ownership over the things you create.

No. I provide neither RAW nor unedited photos. Editing is a part of the process and something that defines a photographer. So by giving unedited files, one's work will no longer seem to have the meaning it should have had.

Do you provide unedited photos?

Can I bring my dog to the session?

Of course you can! I am an animal lover and, in fact, all animals are welcome to my sessions.
