What is the booking process?

 

We work on a first come, first serve basis.  We take a limited amount of weddings a year, and weddings are booked only with a retainer and signed contract. Sadly we cannot hold dates for you without booking deposit and signing the contract.

Once you know the wedding package chosen , please send us an email to confirm with all the wedding details. We’ll send over an online Quote and Contract that can be e-signed.
To book us officially we ask  40% as Deposit,  the remaining balance is due 3 weeks before your wedding.

 
 

Do you travel?

 

Yes, We do!…We love traveling! Actually, we are most inspired when we photograph in new locations. Wherever you decide to tie the know, we’re ready and willing to be there with you.

To avoid risking travel delays ect, we will arrive the morning prior to the wedding day and depart the morning after. This also allows us to scout your venue prior to the wedding day.

 
 

When do we receive our images?

 

You will receive your wedding images in 3-4 months. We will proceed to upload all the images on a private password-protected gallery on our Cloud Storage, and a month later we will deliver you with a customized “Made In Italy” box set that includes 100 Fine Art Printed Images & a USB Pen Drive.

 
 

What’s a wedding like with you?

 

Bottega 53 Studio is all about the essence, which means we won't simply capture your images from afar. We love to have fun, and we wish the same for you. We will get to the dance floor, move and mingle with you and your guests. We will remind you to breathe and enjoy when everything else is rushing by. 

We will encourage you to whisper sweet nothings and kiss "just because". 

We do our absolute best for our clients. We may hike, explore, and keep moving, because we wish to make sure that you enjoy every speck of you big day be it on your wedding venue or outside it. You put so much love and time into planning the single most beautiful detail and we wish to do your day justice. As we are not the kind of photographers who will ask you to say "cheese" and smile, you should expect to see all kinds of your emotions encapsulated in your collection of images.

 
 

Do you shoot film or digital?

 

We shoot Digital for the ability it gives your wedding to move freely and naturally, but if you desperately wish for film in your collection you may wish to choose the package One or Two to have us shoot on HASSEMBLAD 500 C.

 
 

Do you provide RAWs?

 

Providing our clients with RAWs would mean only half the work handed over.  Our  edits are what makes our brand unique, therefore we do not provide raw files. Our culling process is simple; we take away all the test shots, duplicates, blinking eyes, anything out of focus out of the collection, then fully edit and hand over our clients with pristine images. 

 
 

Do you Photoshop images? 

 

Although we will definitely proceed to clearing up skin and remove obvious distractions from your images we do not by any means change how you look as we want you to look your best natural self and extolt your true beauty. 

 
 

Do you carry insurance?

 

Yes we do. If your venue needs a certificate of additional insurance, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can provide one.
