WHO ARE YOU?
I am Daniele Cherenti, a professional photographer specialized in weddings and engagement sessions. I believe that wedding photography, despite being a very demanding job, is the most complete kind of photography since it touches base on all the different kinds of photography.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am from Portoscuso (CI), but for years I have been managing weddings throughout Sardinia, in Italy and abroad (contact me for a quote).
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
My style is mainly story telling. In order for my photos to convey something, my natural instincts and creativity are needed, for this reason I always try to capture not only beautiful images but I try to create them. Every wedding is different, there are usually different spontaneous moments, it depends above all on the spouses but in any case I never force people to pose.
HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT OFFERING YOUR SERVICES?
The service provides coverage of the whole day by me and another photographer, from the preparation of the groom and bride to the end of the reception. Coverage, timing and logistics will be in agreement with the couple.
WHEN WOULD I NEED TO BOOK YOUR SERVICE?
It is always better to book the service at least 6 months before the fixed date. Some dates especially between the months of June and September require two years notice.
HOW DO I BOOK YOUR SERVICES?
After checking my availability for the date you have chosen, you can book the service by phone or email. A deposit of 20% of the cost of the service is needed to secure our services for your date. I always meet the couple before to be able to explain my style, my way of working and show them my products and if possible we can perform a pre-wedding shoot to get to know each other. It is important to understand who I have in front of me, to know their tastes, preferences, their needs, in order to deliver the best personalised service to my clients.
WHO WILL BE CHOOSING THE IMAGES TO BE USED?
Selecting the right images is very important. I will personally be the one who carefully selects the images to be processed, as I believe it should be done by the “writer” of the story to be told, and not by the characters in the story. Usually I deliver a selection of post-produced photos with about 400-600 wedding photos in low resolution, I give you a draft layout, then we can revisit it together.
IF WE DON’T LIKE THE LAYOUT?
Before printing, you will have the opportunity to see a preview of the album. Thus you will first see a replica of what will eventually be your album, where you can write down modifications you would like done such as adding, replacing or deleting some photos. Do however keep in mind, the layout of an album requires not only good taste and creativity, but also experience and graphic design skills, therefore the layout should not be altered too much.
DO YOU WORK ALONE?
Usually I work with a second photographer, especially in the case where the couple get ready in different places. This way also guaranteeing you an excellent service shooting from 2 different directions, leading to a more complete service. By working alone, however, I guarantee an excellent service due to my great level of experience over the years.
DO WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR TRANSPORT EXPENSES?
I am based in Portoscuso. Travel expenses are to be paid by the client only if the distance exceeds 100 km in total. Contact me specifying where the wedding will take place for a quote.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DELIVER?
Delivery times for the service range from 3 to 6 months according to the period of the year, while the album generally does not take longer than 30 days to print. The waiting period is linked to the work to be done in post-production and to the choice of the final photographs, since my way of “story telling” distinguish me, and it being an artistic project, it can never be the same as that of another photographer.
CAN YOU TAKE FORMAL GROUP PHOTOS?
Of course, if required, I can always take “classic” group photos after the ceremony, outside the church or at the restaurant.
DO I NEED TO CONTACT YOU TO HAVE REPRINTS OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS?
The possession of the images remains with me; this means that you will not be able to use the photographs for commercial purposes or modify them. In any case, we always deliver the selected and post-produced photographs in high resolution, without logos or printing limits, together with images with watermarks to be shared on the web.
HOW MUCH IS YOUR SERVICES?
Costs are based on different factors ranging from working hours, to the use of a second photographer, and the creation of your wedding album. On average, a service starts from € 1600 up to € 3000 approximately.
