faq domande frequenti dettagli wedding detail

What is your style?

My photographic style is reportage: I shoot in a spontaneous and natural way describing what happens without the use of static poses or creating unreal situations (groom portrait with his jacket on the shoulder or the bride lying on the bed that is too much 80’s style). My presence is always discreet and respectful, I’ll be almost ‘invisible’, letting you enjoy your day with your friends and family. If you wish, we can take together 20-30 minutes after the ceremony for a session of creative shots, preferably inside the location, in order not to stay too much away from your guests.

Where are you from and how far you can travel?

I was born and I live in Liguria, near Cinque Terre and Portofino. I studied photography in Milan at the John Kaverdash Academy specializing in professional image editing, fashion photography and portraits. Later I obtained a Master in Reportage photography at IIF (Italian Institute of Photography, Istituto Italiano di Fotografia). I am available for destination weddings in Europe and abroad, distances are not an obstacle for me: I love to travel for taking photographs!

Do you work alone?

It depends on the package chosen, but usually I work with a photographer of my team. Let’s discuss together this option, I’m at your disposal!

What are your prices?

To tell your wedding my rates start from a base-price for the Collection One (8 hours coverage and delivery of digital files; the price of any album, prints or extra services is calculated separately). Please email or simply fill out the form and I will send you a detailed quote focusing on your requirements.

Have you got any guarantees for your clients/couples?

I am a member of the largest wedding photographer’s association in Italy, ANFM (National Association of Wedding Photographers, Associazione Nazionale Fotografi Matrimonialisti) and for this reason I release all the guarantees given on the official website (ANFM – Scheda personale Simone Primo).

The pictures I saw on the site are made by you?

Every single photo that you see on my website or on my facebook page (here) is taken and processed exclusively by me! My staff helps me during the event but there are no photos taken by them on my website or social media.

Did you offer any additional services?

Of course, do not hesitate to ask me about my extra services such as “Engagement Service”, “Polaroid Guestbook”, “Photobooth”, etc.

How long will you stay at the wedding?

I offer three different packages 8 – 10 – 12 hours of coverage, but also foresee the possibility to work the extra hours! From experience, however this timing allows me to take all the important events of the day without losing anything.
During the week, from Monday to Thursday, for proposals, elopements and honeymoon, I make also shorter hours packages if you wish (2 – 4 – 8 hours). I am at your disposal.

How many photos will you deliver?

I have set no limits on the number of photographs to be done. I deliver all the shots in high resolution (always 400+ files). These will be carefully selected, post-produced and mastered in detail from the point of view of exposure, color and contrast. Delivery will take place on USB/DVD, ready to be printed also by yourself after many years if you’ll want to.

How long will I have to wait for delivery?

The samples will be ready in 60 days after the ceremony, upload, using a special software, on a web gallery where the shots chosen by the photographer will also be reported. From there I will start my work, editing carefully, using post-production and reprocessing. The final delivery of the service will take place no later than three months from the date of marriage.

What kind of albums do you realize?

I realize traditional albums (those with photographs individually printed and applied to the page, for instance) or photo books (where the shots are etched directly onto the album surface) selected from the best manufacturers in the industry made in Italy.
I’ll deliver a completely handmade product with covers that use high-quality materials. For my couples I also suggest a plexiglass pearl that I called “I love you”, that will be the container for your photos (see “info”> “Album”).
The choice of photos and page layout will be agreed and executed together, and not only by me, so that the finished work will exactly meet your expectations.

Can we ask you for a wedding video?

Of course! This work deal with it my esteemed colleagues with whom I usually work and with I share the same working method. Do not forget to write me about this part and I will send you the contacts so that you can accord with them.

We like your photos! How do we fix the date?

Setting the date is easy! Write to me via email and we’ll check together the availability of the date. Once you have chosen the type of service I’ll simply ask you to pay the fee stipulated in the contract as an advance.

If I have forgotten something, or you have any doubt or questions for me, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I am at your disposal.
