WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM ALL THE OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS?

First and foremost wedding photography is a passion for us. We absolutely love capturing the biggest moments of people's lives, and when you are super passionate about something I believe it is shows through your work. We love to work with people which translates into very natural and relaxed photo sessions.We love to capture images with available light, also use additional lighting when needed to capture great images! Photography is light, light, light and great expression!



WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE AS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

How many weddings have you photographed? Have you done many that were similar to mine in size and style?
I have been a full-time photographer since 2004 and have documented quite a few weddings since then.I started my photography carrier at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, than I become the house photographer at the 5 -star, 5-diamond Venetian Resort, where I stayed for almost 3 years. I photographed hundreds of weddings and special events during this years and since.Meantime I was running my own business. Than I decided it was time to go to my own and here I am!I am not exclusively a wedding photographer –I am also an event and portrait photographer– but I have found that documenting the joy and love of weddings is a great source of joy for me too, and look forward documenting you day!



ARE YOU THE ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHER WHO WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHING MY WEDDING DAY?

Yes! I am the primary photographer for my business, unless if its otherwise agreed. The benefit of hiring me is that you will know who is with you before, during, and after the wedding making sure you have an awesome experience!
DO YOU BRING AN ASSISTANT?I bring an assistant with me if you book one of our Main Photography Collections to help with camera,reflector, second lighting and making the day go smoothly. (our MIDI Collections doesn't include an assistant)
DO YOU BRING A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?If you would like another pair of eyes for a different perspective on your wedding, you may add a second photographer or a student photographer. Some of our Photography Collections include second photographers.



WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE AS MUCH INFORMATION AS WE CAN ABOUT OUR WEDDING DAY?

We ask questions about your big day (how many people did you invite for your wedding, how big is your wedding party, did you pick your wedding location already...) to make sure we provide you with the right photography collections to choose from.You have different needs if you invited 250 people on your wedding or just the two of you, planning to tie the knot in a golf course or in a downtown wedding chapel.



HOW MANY HOURS OF PHOTOGRAPHY COVERAGE DO WE NEED?

On average of 8 hours is the cozy number of hours that gives enough time in the day to capture the starting points (getting ready) of the day through the last reception event so we can tell your story from start to finish. However, if more than one location is involved or weddings with gaps in the timeline longer hours may be needed - we are always happy to walk through your day with you and figure exactly what package is best for your big day!



SHOULD WE CONSIDER A 1ST LOOK?

Absolutely! There are numerous reasons to do a 1st look but a couple of the biggest reasons are* being able to share that first moment together in a private setting* being able to spend more time with your photographer and a direct result from more photos * being able to enjoy cocktail hour with your wedding guests.



HAVE YOU EVER WORKED WITH MY FLORIST, DJ, VIDEOGRAPHER...?

We had the pleasure of working with many vendors over the years. We have strong connections with videographers, florists and DJ`s in the Las Vegas area.



HAVE YOU EVER PHOTOGRAPHED A WEDDING AT MY WEDDING SITE BEFORE? IF NOT DO YOU PLAN TO CHECK IT OUT IN ADVANCE?

We had the pleasure of working at numerous wedding locations in the Las Vegas Valley. If your location is a place that we did not have the pleasure of working before, we do a scouting of the location, prior to the event.Creativity and spontaneity are also part of being a experienced event photographer! We love visiting new places and returning to places we are familiar with.



CAN I SUBMIT A SHOT LIST?

After hundreds of weddings I guarantee that I instinctively have a list of shots in my head, the "must have" photographs. Before your wedding I discuss the timeline, group photos, and any important moments I should be ready for. You are more than welcome to put together a list for group photos, or any other people who is really important for you, or traveling for long distance and definitely would like to include in the images.On the creative part, your wedding is guaranteed to be different because you are hiring my creative eye.I love Pinterest and I know how much fun it is collecting images so please feel free to send me your inspiration board without expecting replication!



HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK OUR WEDDING?

We require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer to hold your date.We often receive multiple inquiries for the same day so once you decide we are the right fit for you, you should reserve the date for your wedding. It can be as much as 6-18 months before your wedding day, but we may can accommodate you couple of weeks before your wedding! Just drop us an e-mail @ imagesbyedi@gmail.com about our availability! The booking process is easy after you choose your package and sign the contract.
HOW LONG UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?You will have access to your edited wedding photos via an online password protected image gallery as we have completed editing them. Our average turnaround time for images is approximately 2-3 weeks for weddings!



DO YOU OFFER ONLINE PROOFING?

Being able to easily share your photos with family and friends is a plus! And even better, not having to take print orders from your entire extended family and just have them order directly from our password protected website, saves you tons of time and headaches.You will have a password protected online image gallery within 2-3 weeks of your wedding.
HOW MUCH EDITING IS DONE TO THE FINAL PHOTOGRAPHS?First of all we edit the images, take out duplicates, funny faces, blinks.... We like to shoot correctly in camera, but we process all of the images through Lightroom. We add contrast, take out minor blemishes, and pop the color.Our approach is more natural. Than comes the artistic editing, when we personally select 10-15 of your images and turn them into B& W, Sepia and give other special effects.Additional retouching can be added for a fee.
WHY SHOULD WE GET A WEDDING ALBUM?Beautiful photographs of your special day deserve to be showcased in the best possible manner!Digital files are great, but we have no idea where they will be in 5years!Having a physical reminder of your wedding day for you, your kids, and your grandkids is priceless. I still love looking at the photos form my grandparents and parents album. We like to make the choice simple for our clients, by offering 3 choice of storybooks. Playbooks, Bijou Albums and Costume-made, costume designed high quality Wedding albums. We offer the finest products on the market to showcase these special moments.We put together a custom design for your album as well as work hand in hand with you to make it perfect.



DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH DESTINATION WEDDINGS?

Yes!! We love to travel to photograph weddings in different locations. It is our dream to photograph weddings in different states and more international venues! I have had the honor of being a Destination Photographer in Europe for clients in the past.
ARE THERE ANY TRAVEL FEES?Travel fees apply for my destination weddings and when I am going to a location farther then 60 miles from Las Vegas.Fees also vary depending on length of stay, distance of travel, and amount of coverage. We will discuss all fees in advance and I always as economical as possible for you
WHAT TYPE OF CAMERA EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU CARRY BACKUP EQUIPMENT?We use Nikon digital SLR cameras and a range of Nikon professional lenses. We can capture great images even in low-light chapels, churches and it allows to provide our clients high quality enlargements and prints. We also carry backup equipment to all our photo sessions..
