Derya Engin önderliğinde kurulan ve günümüzde 11 kişiye çıkan, aynı tarihte 3 düğün çekebilecek kapasitede, düğün gününüzü belgesel niteliklere bağlı kalarak doğal bir şekilde belgelemek için çaba gösteren bir fotoğraf ve film ekibiyiz. Bir de; yaptığımız işi çok seviyoruz:)
What are your working details?
We are a team that makes wedding, engagement, Save the Date, Trash the Dress, elopement, destination weddings, concept shots and family shots. We can describe our style as natural and minimal with photojournalistic elements.
We only shoot all-day wedding documentaries on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We do Save the date and similar concept shoots on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
We have the decision to work with only 50 couples throughout the year, as we want to spend time on our own private lives, our families, and to travel and see and nurture our creativity. This also provides the couples who work with us the opportunity to give all our creativity and energy. For this reason, we recommend that you contact us as soon as your wedding date is known.
What do we do before shooting?
After we decide to work together, we first meet at a suitable place and time. Thus, we both meet and determine the details of the shooting day (place, time, concept, etc.) together while sipping our coffees. It is actually very important that the bride and groom who will be shooting with the wedding photographer meet in advance. Thus, you both get to know us - which eliminates the tension of posing for a stranger on this shooting day. Besides, we get to know you, we shape the shooting according to your style and wishes.
How do we shoot?
We meet with you at the time and place we have decided for the wedding day or concept shooting and start shooting. Previous shots of the person who will photograph your most special moments will be a reference in your choice. Depending on the package you bought during the shootings, we become 1 photographer, assistant and if desired a video team. Our assistant usually performs his duties such as holding a reflector during outdoor shooting, preparing the second camera, and sometimes taking the same frame from different angles.
What does all-day shooting and outdoor shooting include?
All-day shooting covers an average of 8 or 12 hours, starting with the hair-make-up preparation of the bride in the morning and ending with the first dance in the evening if you want, or until the end of the night. The couple who shoot all day will also get the outside shot, we go to the decided shooting location at a time allocated during the day and shoot an average of 2 hours.
Outdoor shooting, on the other hand, covers an average of 2 hours of shooting at the shooting location we have previously decided together.
How many photos do we take?
We take an average of 400-500 frames per 2 hours of shooting. We extract some of these photos in the editing phase, usually delete the frames taken in series, and deliver all the remaining frames. This is around 250-400 squares on average.
In all day shootings, we take an average of around 1000 frames, again by eliminating them, we deliver 600-900 photos to you.
What do we do after shooting?
After the shooting is over, you forget us for 30-40 days :) During this time, we sort and organize the photos as mentioned above. Then we shrink all of the photos and send them to you via WeTransfer. You choose an average of 50-60 photos you want to be used in the album and send us their numbers. After you send the photo numbers, we design your photo album within 3-5 days and send both the cover and the inner pages to you via e-mail. Thus, we do not include surprises in your album, we include you in every stage. We think that the color, design and quality of the album as well as the shooting should be intimate with you. After you give your approval, we send your album to the printing house. The printing house delivers it within 10 working days. After printing, color and quality control, we send your album set and your special design photo USB, which includes all your photos, to you by cargo.
