2) HOW LONG WILL YOU BE AVAILABLE?
If you are now calculating if 12h is enough time to capture all important parts of your wedding day, relax and do not do that. You can rest asure, that I never set the alarm on 12h and leave exactly when the time is up. I do not even look at my watch most of the time. If the party is jumping and the celebration is not even close to be ending, we are going to turn on the lights together, trust me.

I arrive with full frame Nikon cameras and Nikon G series lenses. I work with two cameras all the time. One camera is always set with the wide angle lense, whereas the other one Is changed with some prime zoom lenses. Every camera has 2 SD card slots, which makes sure that I always a safe backup. Your movie is filmed with Sony Mirrorless cameras and Zeiss lenses. We also use Manfrotto monopodes, Ronin M and Ronin S gimbal, Glidecam Steadycam and the latest DJI drones.
8) DO YOU USE FLASHES VERY OFTEN OR AVAILABLE LIGHT?
For weddings I prefer available light, but use flashes when the natural light isn’t adequate.

Definitely! In my opinion, engagement shootings are the best way for us to get to know each other and to get comfortable with the camera.
10) HOW FAR SHOULD WE BOOK IN ADVANCE?
Many couples book us more than one year in advance. But there are also some spontaneous requests. So the earlier you contact us, the better the chances are that your date is still available in our calendar. Just tell us as soon as your date is set.

Of course, I love to get to know new people and couples. If you are living outside of BiH and Croatia we can skype/facetime as well.
12) FOR HOW MANY NIGHTS SHOULD WE BOOK YOUR ACCOMODATION?
Usually, it takes two nights: one day before the wedding, for the arrival, and the night after the wedding. If you book our services for an additional photo session, then we need an extra night you have to book for us.
13) WHEN IS IT BEST TO DO A PHOTO SESSION?
A photo session is most successful, when it takes place right before the sun sets (golden hour – 1-2h before the sunset). We get the best results, when we book an additional day for the photo session.

Travel in a radius of 100km around Cologne is included in every wedding package. For every additional kilometer I charge 0,19 EUR. As I work all over the world, cost for overseas weddings are to e discussed personally.

Of course! We are using our drone when we want to visualize the location to the spectator, or to show him the film frame from a perspective he has never seen before, so that he can explore the whole moment. Furthermore, we are using the drone only if it is in agreement with the local regulations and weather conditions.

18) MUSIC SELECTION AND VIDEO EDITING STYLE
Regarding movies, it is essential to choose the right background music. We are open to your suggestions; however, the final selection will be ours. Frequently, it takes much more time to find the right music than to edit the video spot itself. The chemistry between the scenes and the music, its rhythm, its dynamics… We edit the video so that the documentary parts take turns with those parts which have a musical background.
19) WE EXPECT A LOT OF WEDDING GUESTS AT OUR WEDDING, DO WE HAVE TO BOOK AN ADDITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?
An additional photographer is very important, especially in situations like „the getting ready“ moment of the bride and groom, which takes place at two different locations in a short period of time. Furthermore, an addional photographer can always enrich your wedding album with precious pictures, taken from a different perspective spontaneously.
20) DO YOU WORK ON EVERY PHOTOGRAPHY AND HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU INVEST IN THIS PROCESS?
From my perspective, the work that comes after taking the pictures, is the difficult part and most time consuming. My goal is to edit every picture according to my aesthetic standards. Every photo has a stylized look, where special settings are applied, such as light and optimal color.
21) DO YOU OFFER A PHOTO BOOTH?
My photo booth is available for all packages from 2,5 hours upwards. For more info please feel free to contact me. More on our site www.foto-show.com

You can book us for eight hours and more. There is no time limit, you set the time frame. We are also happy to attend your celebration for several days – just according to your wishes. We are creating individual packages for many of our clients and adjust them with their needs and wishes. Your wedding photos will be unique and a unrepeatable memory. For that reason, I warmly encourage you to take pictures of the whole day instead of just couple of hours.
