KINGA STUDIOS has been around for 15 years, we’ve met with a lot of couples. Here are the most common questions newly engaged couples had about their engagement photography:
A: Our engagement sessions last anywhere from 30min - 2 hours. This may seems like a very large window, but it truly depands on what vision
A: Most couples opt in for an on location shoot.
A: This is the number one question I hear. Have no fear after the pre-shoot prep info, you'll know exactly what to wear (and what not to).
A: Give yourself enough driving time from home to the location you have pre-determined with your photographer. Google map it if you're unsure where it is. It's not every day we get out professional portrait taken so there may be a little bit of jotters. Showing up 10-15 minutes early ensures that you're not stressed or cut into photography time. It'll give you a little bit of time to get ready and have a wonderful engagement session experience.
A: Every couple I met had a different vision for their engagement photos. Some didn't have one at all - as they didn't know what is possible. During the consultation we'll go over various options and let you choose or modify to your choosing. At KINGA STUDIOS we want to exceed ALL of our clients expectations.
A: KINGA STUDIOS is 100% a digital photography business. We do not offer film as a photography option any longer.
A: No. Your engagement pics are not stamped with our studio logo. You can download high-resolution files directly to your computer and print off at any lab of your choosing.
A: The digital choice is a personal preference. I feel that going digital gives us more creative freedom, especially in post processing. Personally, my favorite thing about digital is that I no longer have to change rolls of film every 36 images, this helps to ensure I don’t miss a shot. Secondly, there is no longer a worry about degradation of the chemical negatives and never being able to have them replaced. Digital negatives can be stored in multiple locations. This way, is a hard drive dies you go to your back up. If you lost a roll of film – its lost.
A: The person you meet during your consultation is Kinga Dyrda. Kinga, will be the primary photographer during your engagement session. If Kinga will not be available due to a medical emergency, your engagement session will be reschedualed or a back-up photographer will be arranged (if you wish). Kinga will may have an assistant with her to help with equipment and multiple flash lighting set-ups. A second shooter is available as an additional cost, but is not required.
A: We provide you with an edited selection of everything we shoot. You receive the, ‘best of the best’ images from the engagement session. ALL junk shots removed. You will not be sifting through 100's of photographs that may have closed eyes, an awkward look etc.
A. During the engagement shoot, I use an array of different lighting techniques. Everything from natural light to multiple off camera flash lighting set ups.
A: All the proofing is done online. Once the engagement package is paid in full, you’ll receive a login & password to your private online-gallery. You can share the password with your friends and family if you wish or keep it private.
