Our FAQ, which is not the same as f**k!
Here you have our frequently asked questions that you pretty people normally ask. Is not that we don’t like to say the same things over and over, but just in case you’re ashamed to ask, or maybe you want to know what is normally asked.
By the way, to make things easier we have underlined in yellow the most valuable questions. Like Yahoo Answers!
Here we go:
Does David like gasoline?
Dale más gasoliiiiiiinaaaaaa.
Oh come on, it’s a good one! Although you have to like Daddy Yankee or at least know the reference.
Lets take things serious, please…
Let’s start with the mother of all questions: what’s your rate?
To be honest it depends very much on what you have in mind. For example: if you want to get our packaging with a magazine, a wedding album, video, an intimate couple photo shoot or if you’re doing a ‘get together’ party and you want to get it photography/video covered too.
Anyways, the photography whole day coverage (since you both start getting ready until the evening/night ‘perreo’ -party-) rate is 1.495€ (21% VAT included) covered by two photographers. Anyhow, write us and tell us what kind of crazy day you have in mind so we can give you a tailor-made rate
We don’t know if we should do our wedding in the morning or evening
EVEEEEEEEEEEEEENIIIIIIIIIINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! And give us jaleo-ole-ole-olá.
Much better in the evening. Evening’s light is much more flattering since the sun is not as high we can avoid hard shadows and strong contrast areas.
Also we can take the most of this BEAUTIFUL light called golden and blue hour -that time of the day where the sun is almost hiding already but there’s still natural light available- so we can take 20/30 minutes of pictures of you two alone in the amazing venue and you two looking even more STUNNING (as if it were possible).
By the way! To party is always better at night so connecting the wedding banquet with the party makes people give it all.
Where are you from? Do you work abroad?
We are from Valencia (the land of flowers, light and love) and of course! We love to travel and we can go wherever you want us to go. It doesn’t matter if it’s for your wedding, for a couples session or whatever, we would walk a 500 miles and 500 more just to be the photographers that walks a thousand miles to photograph you at your door (? WTF was that. Damn you The Proclaimers, your amazing song will be in our heads the whole day).
What do you expect from us? We expect you to be yourselves and to let go. It has no mystery, and it’s much easier than you’d think
How far in advance should we hire you?
As soon as possible! We only do a determined number of weddings per year, so to be sure that your date is available contact us as soon as possible.
We freaking love your work. What now?
Then your next step is to contact us. We want to know all the pretty things you have in mind for such a lovely day! When are you getting married? Is it going to be in the morning or the afternoon? Have you hired a wedding planner? What is love? (baby don’t hurt me. REALLY?! ANOTHER CATCHY SONG?! AGAIN?!). We’ll reply as fast as possible -normally before 24h- with a customized quote. Once you have checked it we can schedule a Skype/Zoom/Facetime/whatever videoconference so we can see how pretty you are. By the way, Carla is very pretty too, David not so much, but he is funny, so…
Should we do a couples intimate session before the wedding?
(Ok, lets try again, not so categorical this time)
You should do it for many reason, but there are two of them that we really like to emphasize: first, it’s a perfect way to be comfortable in front of the camera in your wedding day since you already have the experience, but it’s also a perfect intimate moment where you can kiss each other a lot (and we mean it), touch each other, feel each other… With now a days vertiginous rhythm there are certain basic things that we can’t stop to enjoy that much. This is a great opportunity to have some quality couples time, enjoying one another while we photograph you in such a personal and lovely moment.
Are we following the protocol?
Please, no protocols. Really, zero, none, nothing, nada, rien. Nobody cares if you’re on the left and the other on the right or if the bouquet should be grabbed with your left or right hand. Life at natural, improvised, is much much pretty. Why shouldn’t this rule apply in one of your best days in your life as a couple?
We can guarantee what your people -and specially us, since pictures will be much more powerful- really cares for is that you cry in tears with a snot hanging out your nose, laugh until you can’t breathe, jump until your dress rips. What everyone really cares is for you to ENJOY. It’s your wedding, LIVE IT. Nobody has to tell you how to enjoy your day but yourselves. We want to see you have so much energy that if you were a video-game character you’d have unlimited lives.
Will you be with us the whole day?
Oh yeah! Since you’re both getting ready until one hour of party. Aaaaaaaalllll daaaaaaay looooong.
Our wedding it’s going to last more than one day… Would you endure it?
Are you testing us?! Is this a test?! Of course we would! Some food every now and then, a bit of water, and keep photographing. The topic is true: the wedding day goes by really fast and what’s better to extend it for 2, 3, 4 or 10 days? You will enjoy it longer!
Maybe you want to celebrate it in different days; maybe you have in mind to do a pool party with your friends before/after the wedding day and you want to have memories of those days too; maybe you want a more intimate celebration first and then a big one with everyone around.
Tell us what you have in mind and we will send you a customized quote.
How many people will be photographing at our wedding?
The two of us: Tom and Jerry, Timon and Pumba, Carla and David. It’s all done by us two: we are the ones that will reply your e-mail, we are the ones that will photograph you the day of your wedding, we are the ones that will cull and edit your pictures, and we are the ones that will deliver them to you. The whole process will be done by us two. If you also want a video another videographer will come with us, which normally is Guillem
How many pictures we’ll receive? Will they be edited?
A lot. Really, like A LOT. It’s hard to put a number on it because it depends on every wedding, but we never heard a complain about the amount of pictures delivered. If you want an estimate number: you’ll receive at least 800-900 pictures for a full day wedding. All of them edited one by one (adjusting exposure, color, white balance, high lights, shadows, color uniformity…), in high resolution JPG with no watermarks. We don’t do Photoshop retouches, we like reality as it is.
If you want to you can ask us for a whole wedding private gallery link, so you can take a look at a whole wedding and not a sum up like our galleries are.
How long until we receive the pictures?
You’ll get the party pictures, some random pictures of you two, and some random picture with your family in less than 7 days. They will be uploaded to your password protected private gallery. We know you need to see how awesome your wedding was, how beautiful you look, and also stuff for Instagram. The rest of the photographic report will be available between 6 and 8 weeks at most, which is less than 60 days. Comee oooon, is not that much!
How do you deliver the pictures?
We’ll give you a link to your online password protected private gallery. You can download the pictures from that gallery at the highest resolution, from any place in the world using any device with Internet connection. You could (and should) also share that link with your family and friends so they can all see how f***ing awesome your wedding was and how f***ing beautiful everyone looked.
If you want something to be touched you can also ask for a personalized box hand drawn by Carla with beautiful hand made things inside, a wedding photo book, a USB pendrive with all the pictures in it and much more.
Will we do a mini-session at some time on the wedding day?
Does the sun rise in the morning? Is it summer in Spain hot? Does Carla sleep a lot? Yes. Why? Because everybody says so. Sigh… Of course we will! Beautiful as you both are, beautiful as everything looks, and beautiful as the day is, we must take some pictures, right?!
Don’t worry, we recommend you to do a small 20/30 minutes mini-session after the ceremony, but we understand you want to have fun and be with your people, so we can do it whenever you want in the day.
Do you take group shots?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! As many as stars are in the sky (well… maybe not that much). Since they are more personal pictures and not as artistic we don’t show many of them, but yes, you’ll get group shots. In fact we are kinda getting used to take big group shots before we leave, like this one we did in Casa Santonja
Aside of weddings, do you do anything else?
Oui. David is also a portrait and architecture photographer. Among many others he has portrayed the Spanish journalist Jordi Évole, IZAL’s lead singer Mikel Izal, Valencia’s Mayor Joan Ribó, the adult films actor Nacho Vidal or the well known Pedro Cavadas a.k.a. Dr. Miracle. He has also been photographing the whole Valencian Community for 8 months: from Pilar de la Horadada (south bottom) to Vinarós (north top). It was awesome.
Carla is also an illustrator and a tattoo artist (her tatoo work can be seen at @grisaceos.ink), having exhibited her work many times around Spain. Recently she has been assigned to illustrate the Atomic Art 2019 festival poster. The tattoo thing started in 2021 and she’s already freaking good. In case you want to have something in your skin forever you can count with her needles and ink.
