FAQ

What can we do prepare for the photo session?

Looking at couple photography pictures helps. To see poses, portraits, stance. How and where to stand. Where to put your hands! We could start by looking at our couple photo session board in our pinterest account to see some sample photos we have taken in the past. Also to get a sense of the effect that can be achieved. And get inspiration to find a pose you like that we can use in different settings. If you have a pinterest account you can pin some of the picture you like and send them over so that we can work on those images as inspiration for the Amalfi photoshoot.

Do you have any tips as to what to wear?

The Amalfi coast is a popular southern Italy holiday destination with steep cliffs and rocky shorelines scattered with narrow beaches and pastel colored fishing towns. Up above you have large villas, terraced vineyards and cliff side lemon groves. And all around the azure color of the sea.

So I would favor pastel color dresses for the girls. Red, blue, green, yellow. White linen clothing for the guys to withstand the heat and to play well in the bright sunlight of your Amalfi photoshoot.

What if it rains on the day of the session?

Rescheduling for rain is possible provided that the request is send in by email at least 24 hrs before the start of the photo shoot. If it is not possible to reschedule for rain then the studio will return 90% of the payment.  A few days prior to the photo session we will be on the lookout for bad weather. And should rain be in the forecast we will contact you ahead of time to decide together what to do.

Apart from the rain. Sometimes a cloudy sky condition make for some great photo opportunities. Sure a clear blue sky is looks great in pictures. But an overcast day can highlight other elements which work well in photography like contrast. Making the photography more dramatic and poetic. An excellent opportunity to turn pictures into black and white for a fantastic photographic effect.

When does the photo session start? When we meet or when we shoot?

The Amalfi photoshoot begins when you meet with the assigned photographer.
Where we can discuss the details of the photo session. What are your expectations and what you are looking for. Heading over to the first photo shoot location together. Probably on foot but also possibly by car or taxi service.

Are travelling times to reach the different coastal town accounted for in the photography times? Yes once the photographer is engaged in the session the times continues through the session whether we are shooting or travelling.

Can we change clothing during the session?

Including more than one attire during the session is possible. And it is also nice to see different clothing set which can add dynamism to the Amalfi photoshoot. If your accommodation is in the nearby it is also convenient. Alternatively we can use a restroom for change. If we are going to multiple locations than changing in the minivan or car service can also be an option.

How does payment work?

Prices are visible on our instant price quote page which can also be used to move forward with the booking. Allowing you to reserve a date/time slot for the photo session.

Amalfi photoshoot pictures are delivered online as digital files through cloud server. Delivery times are normally in around 1 month from the date of the photo shoot. Unless expedient image delivery is selected which will decrease the delivery times to within 2 weeks. Once the pictures are ready we will send you a download link.

What is the 'Retrieve All Picture file' option?

If you include the retrieve all picture file in the post processing options. With your 40 pictures/hr inclusive of post production processing, all the other shot pictures in high resolution with no post processing. Please read more on this on the FAQ section of this page.
Let’s do an example taking a 2 hr couple photo session as sample. Let’s say the photographer shot 252 photos. We selected 104 photos for post processing touch up (yes the 40 pictures/hr count is a minimum number of receivable pictures). If there are more deliverable pictures we are more than happy to include them with processing included in the price. By selecting the ‘Retrieve all pictures file’ option you will also receive all the shot pictures that is the 252 photo files shot as is with no post processing.

Does the black and white option come with the color pictures as well?

Yes the black and white conversion is an add on option that comes together with the color picture equivalents.

Do the pictures that we will receive for a 1 hr photo session include photo retouch?

Yes all the pictures we deliver include post processing touchup. The retouching that work that we do includes fixing the picture frame if it needed. We improve and optimize light, color and contrast. Fixing the white balance if needed. We try to make the picture focus sharper. However it does not include changing a person appearance in any way. Altering a person shape. Adding or removing objects or people.

What is the best time to shoot?

The best time to shoot in the Amalfi coast depends on the locations. Often we imagine that shooting at sunset is best. But this may not be case for all locations. Sometimes the sun may be setting behind a cliff or a hill creating large shadow areas which are ideal to get the best colors out of the picture. Good lighting result depend on how the light shines in a certain spot. Generally if I had to choose a time frame however. I would normally select 1-2 hours before sunset to get the best soft golden hour light.

How long before we get the photos?

We work on a first in first out basis. So depending on the season. It may take up to 1 month to receive the photos. But if you wish to move thing much faster. You can select the expedient image delivery option. Which includes a 5 picture selection to be received right then and there within the day’s end in low resolution shot as is with no post processing. With all the photos delivered within 2 weeks if not earlier in both high and low resolution with +photo retouching service.

Can we take couple photos in any other part in Italy?

Yes we can also do Rome photoshoot and Venice photoshoot sessions, as well as Tuscany and Florence photographer sessions.
