Great! Whenever you`re ready, we require a signed contract and a retainer fee.



As soon as possible. I shoot only one event per day, so I work on a first-come, first-served basis. After you are absolutely sure I am the photographer for your big day, I will send you an agreement for you to sign and return with a deposit. After that you can count on me to be there with my cameras for the most anticipated day of your life.



The majority couples actually hire me without an in-person meeting. I am very quick and very thorough with emails and able to answer most questions that way. If you are not much of a typing person, I would be happy to talk to you on the phone or schedule a Skype video meeting.



The number of photographs taken depends on many things – the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events. From a typical 4 hour wedding you should expect no less than 3-400 images, but usually the number is much higher.



Yes. You are hiring me to shoot the wedding, not another photographer working under my name.



Usually no. I work alone but if you would like to have two different perspectives of your special day, I will gladly arrange that. I have an assistant  coming on weddings with me. The assistant is in charge of everything I might need and a great second-hand, both for me and the couple.



I have shot at hundreds of venues so there is a good chance that we have. If I have not however I will be sure to perform a thorough walkthrough with you prior to your wedding day.



Of course you may! I pride myself on the consistency of my work. I understand all photographers put up their best shots from each wedding on their websites so it’s hard to determine how well he or she will perform on the wedding day. That is why I encourage all of our potential clients to view full events from all photographers they meet with to see how well the photographer performs throughout the day.



I use top of the line professional Canon equipment and really extensive backups. I believe, and I will always believe, that there is so much more to wedding photography than just nice equipment. However, that is not to say your wedding photographer shouldn’t have nice equipment.



Yes, I do! Every image that you receive has been hand-edited, one at the time, without batching in bulk groups or mass-producing the results. Also I often select a few favorites for special attention above and beyond the individual image editing.



Of course I do! There is nothing more excited than shooting a wedding on a new gorgeous location. If you are planning your wedding outside of Cyprus, just e-mail me all information I might need.



Travel expenses for weddings and photo shootings within 20 kilometers from Limassol will be covered within the package fee. Minor travel expenses apply if it is required to travel to any other city from Cyprus.



Sorry, unfortunately I cannot hold the date or pencil you in. To be fair to everyone I can’t “hold” a date without a retainer and a signed contract.



I am focused exclusively on photography. However, I will be happy to refer you to a few selected cinematographers.
