We are not very comfortable in front of the camera will we be guided during the session?
You’re not alone! Most people haven’t ever had their photos taken professionally and it can seem like a pretty overwhelming ordeal. I’d say that about 95% of couples are nervous about being photographed on their wedding or honeyoon day.
It’s part of our job to guide and direct you, while keeping you looking natural and spontaneous and in adequation with your personality. After years of experiences we ll choose the best angle to make you look at your best 😉 and to make you feel at ease in front of the camera by telling you you exactly where to stand, which way to lean, where to look and what to do with your hands !
How many images do you tipically deliver ?
We typically deliver anywhere from 50-70 images per hour for a wedding, family or honeymoon photoshooting. Keep in mind these numbers may increase or decrease depending on the flow of the day and the number of events/activities needing to be captured.
What the should I wear?!
I highly recommend sticking with plain, solid colors white, light blue, and avoid any distracting or clashing patterns. Solid colors tend to work best and makes you stand out from the background.But most importantly, wear what you feel comfortable AND beautiful in!!
Have you shot on my island/resort before ?
While we are based out of Tahiti, we serve our brides and grooms on all islands of French Polyneisa for more than 10 years now. Helene lived in Bora Bora for 4 years so she knows every single resorts of this islands but also the hidden spots in the nature of each islands.
Our photography and videography packages include the cost of travel and reasonable accommodations Because of our frequent trips to Bora Bora, special, lower rates may apply depending on the specific circumstances.
What if it rains ?
French Polynesia is beautiful in the rain. There is the possibility of making images with reflections, charming photos with a stylish umbrella, and the light is great for pastel tones.
In Tahiti the rain normally don’t last long so, if necessary, we can make a few pauses to wait the rain stop. I’ll not consider the breaks on the time of our photoshoot. However, if you still wish to reschedule, I’ll evaluate the availability of a new date to better serve you. In the unlikely event that the rain is too heavy to work we would have to cancel.
POST PRODUCTION QUESTIONS
Do you deliver every image you shoot ?
We believe in quality over quantity this is why we eliminate duplicate images, missed focused shots or photos with bad expressions and any other images that may dilute the overall product delivery.
For example, during some weddings we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end.
In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment.
With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.FAQ – Tahiti Photographer
Can we select our photos by ourself ?
As professional photographers we think we are the ones in charge of this part. After years of experience we know what is the best for you. We don’t expect you to take the time to do what is our job and to browse towards hundreds of photos and select the one that is the best.
When you go to a good restaurant you choose it because you know its reputation so there is no reason for you end up in the kitchen trying to select the chief ‘s ingredients recipe and do the food yourself 😉
After all your are on holidays your free time and you probably have something else to do than selecting one by one hundreds of pictures ! Enjoy your time and let us delivering high end quality photos.
Do you touch up all images ?
Yes we do. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections.
Do you provide raw files ?
Each of our packages comes with a full resolution image download. However, we typically do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots because we believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, we’re often shooting with the end (post-produced) product in mind.
How and when will the photo will be delivered ?
You’ll receive the pictures from 5 days to 1 month depending on the length of your photoshooting.FAQ – Tahiti Photographer
