Photography Service in Switzerland

Every photographic assignment is different. I like to send you a specific offer for your event. There are many things to be taken into consideration when determining a fair price. The number of hours; location and travel costs; etc. My prices are normally lower because I have no studio, assistant, to pay for and I keep my income below the sales tax threshold. So, no added sales tax!

The weather can be a problem! However, I’m flexible on the dates and we can move the date of the photo shoot if necessary or cancel if the weather is really bad (at no cost to you or me)!

Get in contact and we can discuss your project – the contact form is here.

Post Production

It’s the age of the digital camera! Images will require some basic adjustments like the color and contrast. Adding a vignette or cropping for the “wow” effect. Photographing a wedding for 8 hours will produce over 1,000 images. They require editing. This will take several days and will be included in my offer. Normally I do the editing in stages (eg. “church”, “cocktail hour” “groups” etc.) and will send you a link when each stage is completed. You start to see pictures after 36 hours!

Pre wedding meeting

We can meet before your wedding day. However, time and costs can be saved by corresponding by e-mail and the telephone. We can combine a meeting with a pre wedding photo shoot. This can be beneficial for both the photographer and the couple. I’m a very easy going person and you will quickly see how easy it is to be relaxed and be natural in front of my camera. You can practice some poses and we can share ideas. This normally lasts an hour but can be longer if we take a coffee break.

Ceremony at the Registry Office

The wedding ceremony at the Registry Office is the only legal way to be married in Switzerland. It is open only Monday to Friday. Some prefer to be married elsewhere and celebrate their wedding with a religious service on another date – normally a Saturday. But it isn’t legal!  (More information here.). I offer a fair price for a two hours assignment covering the official ceremony and aperitif afterwards.

Surprise Marriage Proposal

I have photographed several surprise marriage proposals. There are many spectacular areas in and around Interlaken, or elsewhere in Switzerland. Visit my blog for ideas.

Pre- or post wedding photo shoot

Many prefer to have their official pictures taken before or after the wedding when there is more time and less stress. I can organize a make-up artist but not a wedding dress.


Photo Shoot in London or Venice

A pre-wedding or bridal photo shoot with the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, St. Pauls Cathedral and Tower Bridge in the background. See pictures here.  An engagement session in and around St. Marks Square, Venice. I have lots of special locations. I can give you a very reasonable offer for a six hour photo shoot.

Wedding Book

It isn’t a picture until it’s printed. I work with Graphistudio who are probably the best in the world. Based in northern Italy, that work with all the famous wedding photographers worldwide. They offer a quality product that will not fall to pieces after one month. Infact the binding has a lifetinme  guarantee.

 

Your photo book will become a part of your family heritage and handed on to your children and their children. I wonder how long a USB flash drive will last? More information here. The price for a 30 page wedding book start at CHF. 350.-.
