FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions About Emotional Wedding Photography

What is your style?

My style is a combination of fine art fashion photography and documentary style; and best illustrated as fresh, romantic and fashionable. Paying close attention to the details, the mood and composition allow me to provide you with the unique artistic imagery. I am aware that a wedding is a fast-paced event, and documenting it from different angles is best.

I want my couples to choose me based on the style and quality of my work; and that is why I do not have a street studio, because we are not for everyone.

Do you offer engagement/pre-wedding sessions, anniversary sessions and destination wedding coverage as well?

Of course, I do! I love engagement sessions because I can spend more time with you, the couple, in a relaxed atmosphere before the wedding to know you better. Anniversary sessions are great because your feelings are mature, and it is a clear joy to refresh your feelings from the wedding day.

Destination weddings and overseas pre-wedding sessions are also my goal for this year, and if you are planning your wedding or pre-wedding session in Thailand, Maldives, South Korea, Japan, Bali or any worldwide location, I will be very delighted to be a part of this!

For the destination weddings, I need to arrive at least one day before to scout the location and take some street imagery, which I will use in your album later. Travel expenses + package, with at least 10 hrs of the coverage apply to destination weddings.

When shall we contact you to book you for our wedding?

The earlier the better, if you know a date of your wedding, please contact me ASAP, and then I can book your date.

 

Do you shoot with a second photographer?

I shoot solo and I am the only photographer with the Emotional Wedding Photography; I might bring an assistant if the situation requires me to, this to help me to set-up lighting, etc.

How much do you charge?

I hear this question a lot! I do have three different collections to suit your needs, which are based on the number of images and the amount of hours of the coverage of your wedding. Every collection includes at least 8 hours of photography coverage, full resolution images and a password protected online gallery. The collections start from GBP 800. If the situation requires, additional wedding photography coverage is also possible at one flat rate per hour.

Do you make albums? What products can you offer to us? What does the process look like?

Yes, I do! Emotional Wedding Photography albums are hand-made in New York; the quality is by far superior, especially when you hold this piece of art at your hands. I have chosen these albums because I think about the quality of the service and products for my clients. 

I also offer quality prints. Framed wood prints offer the beauty of a large wood print, finished with unique framing options including pine, hard wood cherry, dark walnut or even rustic wood frames.

The albums are designed in around 4 weeks after the wedding and you will get the digital version of the album, as proof, and to make changes in the next two weeks. You could expect a finished product in 2-3 months after the wedding, which depends on the delivery time from USA. Engagement albums are made locally and this makes logistics easier.

If I need to cancel my wedding or change the date, is the retainer refundable?

The retainer fee paid is non-refundable. This retainer allows me to hold the date entirely for you and based on this, I have to decline all other bookings for this date. 

 

I see the name “Slawomir Maj” on my photography contract, why is it like that?

Thank you for this question, the answer is simple; this is my full name when I was born. I use Gregory Kowalski as my Artistic Alias, such as: Marilyn Monroe was born as Norma Jeane Mortenson. Additionally, it became a second part of me while I enrolled for the theatre school, but Idid not succeed.Thisis cool,as I am fulfilling myself as a photographer!
