Heyy guys! 🙂 Howsiee!
Since the wedding seasons is in full swing, most of you are visiting me to view my portfolio and to discuss your venue and how you would prefer your event photography.
Since I don’t have a FAQ section as yet, I decided to include some of the frequently asked questions here.
Q. Where are you based?
I’m based in Islamabad, F-11. Once the client confirms her visit, she gets a mail/ text from me containing my address.
Q. Do you have your own studio?
I do have a studio, which is at my home. I’m furnishing it at the moment and Insha’Allah would be ready by the start of Nov.
Q. Can you facilitate bride-groom session at their bridal suite or at the hotel?
As a matter of fact, Yes! I carry my studio equipment to the hotel and have shot many sessions in the bridal suite. Sometimes clients prefer a shoot at the hotel because it seems like an easier option to them.
Q. Do you offer event coverage services?
Yes, I do. Infact I love covering events! =) People are slowly moving towards a new trend in event coverage, which is called “Photo journalism’. They prefer a mix of it as well as the traditional coverage.
Q. What is photo-journalism?
Photo-journalism simply means story telling in images, mostly candids. Weddings are not about photographs, its how one wants to remember their big day in a photograph, not about the moment but the moments in between. Covering every minor detail of the wedding, let it be the decor of the hall/ venue, raw emotions or those timeless moments! 🙂 People often want a fusion of both the Traditional event coverage & Photojournalism though. Traditional coverage along becomes a bit boring because its the usual change of places of different families on the stage where the bride and groom are sitting.
Q. How do I book a date? Can I book a date 4 months in advance?
To book a date, the client needs to visit me in person. She can then have a look at my portfolio and if she likes my style of work, book me by making an advance payment of 50%. That actually makes it a lot easier for me since I then mark their date as *SAVED* on my calender with their name + location. ( Ya, I’m a bit old school. lol) Yes, I’m up for advance bookings.
Q. Do you prints the pics yourself?
I have made an agreement with Fuji Lab, to let *ME* handle printing pics of females who observe ‘Parda’ and do not want males to do that for them. That way *I* would be sending the print command, making minor adjustments on their Fuji software and getting prints – no male member of Fuji Lab would be allowed in until I get done.
So yaa pretty much – its a YES! 🙂
Q. Do you get fed up of replying to mails again and again? 😀
I don’t care how many times a client calls, emails or inboxes me. I know its a high involvement project and requires a lot of research/ questions, so I’m willing to answer anything related to the project until you are fully satisfied.
I guess this is all for now, if you have any other queries..
