The importance of professional wedding photography


The importance of professional wedding photography


Through the years we have heard a number of stories about wedding photography... Couples being disappointed with bad results that friends or family members have produced. You will be saving money by not hiring a professional photographer, but in the long run you will be disappointed. Your photos are the only lasting memory you will have of your wedding day, and if they don’t turn out good, those memories will fade.

How we work


How we work


We think it is important that we have a personal interview with the wedding couple prior to their wedding. The interview is for both familiarization and consultation. Familiarization is important for both parties, if both, couple and photographer feel at ease and trust each other it will result in better pictures. During this interview we like to discover what photography styles you like. We offer various styles of photography, for instance (but not limited to) black and white, modern color or nostalgic styles. We have a comprehensive portfolio available at our store for you to look at. Styles that you like can be discussed, and of course we also need to know what you don’t like.

Location, location, location?


Location, location, location?


There are many beautiful locations on Bonaire and most couples want their wedding ceremony to be outside. Good lighting is very important to get good photos. However a beautiful beach is not so great when we have to shoot into the sun. The time of day is very important when choosing a location. We know all the locations on Bonaire that are suitable for wedding ceremonies at the right time of day. We can advise you with choosing the best ceremony location to get good photography results.
Besides the wedding ceremony location we like to consult about locations that are great for photo shoots. Content of landscapes are equally important as the light as a good photo stands or falls with the content in the background. Another important thing to consider is temperature. As you probably know Bonaire has a hot tropical climate. For both wedding couple and photographer it can be very unpleasant if you choose a location that is extremely hot due to lack of wind or shadow, especially when clothes (dress and tuxedo) are not adapted to this climate. If you are not familiar with Bonaire, no worries, we know the best spots on the island.

Quality & quantity


Quality & quantity


One thing we know is that quantity does not make up for quality. Photographers who claim that quantity is unlimited apparently need to take many pictures to produce one good photo. Not very professional indeed? During a wedding we do shoot more photos than you will receive, but this is because human expression changes by the second, not to mention closed eyes etc. After photographing your wedding we go to work by starting to make a selection out of the best photos. These pictures will be edited to perfection in post processing. The amount of photos you will receive depend on the activities of the day, the amount of people present and locations. The average amount of photos we issue to wedding couples are between 50 and 150 photos. All photos issued come in the highest resolution and are free for you to use anyway you like, there are no restrictions for private use. All images you receive are archived on our own storage servers in case you need to request the images later.

Pricing


Pricing


No wedding is the same, every couple has specific demands, and therefore we have no fixed prices. We will give you a quote after the interview when we know what you want. Scroll down to the contact section to get in touch.

How and when do we get our photos?


How and when do we get our photos?


The image selection and editing of your wedding photos takes time. We shoot in a RAW file format (which is more or less a digital negative) that must be processed to a usable image. Every image is processed and will be corrected for color, contrast, lighting and effects. This process will take a minimum of two weeks before we have all your photos ready. All images will be issued on a USB memory stick in both high and low resolution. High resolution is intended for printing, low resolution is good for electronical use. If you depart from Bonaire before we have all your photos ready we will upload them to you.
