Wedding Photograhy - Trouwfotografie

Hey guys! So happy to see you are visiting my page. Congratulations on your engagement. I feel honored every time a couple writes an inquiry, that is why all the information is ready on the web and the next step is to start connecting. This is how I can help you, to make the process easier for you. Weddings are about connection, getting together, and make both families A family. This goes beyond the wedding day. 


Follow your own rules, make it your wedding. Meet your vendors, get along with them, put them together, working as a team for you. In the end, your memories are everything that matters, and I am so happy to be in charge of them. Let's grab a coffee, even a virtual one, and talk more about you, me, the wedding, our pets & plants, our drinks, and how you want your memories to be. 


Here I share with you all the information for your Wedding Event, my Frequently Asked Questions, and my current pricing.  I update this once a year in June.


See you soon!

What else? 
Special collections include a "Road to the Wedding". I go with you to document your main events towards the wedding day. It could be sending the invitations, we go together to try your Wedding Dress, another Engagament Session, if they are events around your wedding we can add them here. Even picking your guest from the airport. Think of this as an extended documentary related to your wedding that would be added to your Wedding Album.

Special collections are estimated per day of 12 hours, tell me roughly about your plans and I will send you an approximate investment including what you need. I am always open for a call for discussing this in deep.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? DO YOU CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE FOR WEDDINGS NOT IN YOUR LOCATION? 

I am located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. My travel fees are flat and cover all my basic expenses, and my assistant, while in a different city. I find driving more than 1 hour after an event is not the best idea, so I add a night or 2 if necessary to a place near your event. Don't forget to mention the place when inquiring, to give you the exact rate.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS? HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED AS THE MAIN PHOTOGRAPHER? 

I've been in business as the main wedding photographer for ten years and photographed more than a hundred weddings.

DESCRIBE YOUR "STYLE" OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY.

I do photo documentaries around wedding events: the connection, your important persons, the road to the wedding day, and the details. I go with the flow and follow you along the way. I describe your day, and that goes beyond the wedding event. It's more about the connection, your family, and getting together once more for an important day in your life.

WHAT'S THE TYPICAL WEDDING COVERAGE PACKAGE THAT YOU OFFER? WHAT IS THE PRICE? 

I divide my services into 3: Half Day, Wedding Day, and Complete Coverage (Personalized according to the days you need). This system applies to all my sessions, too, with the same pricing as well. Ask for the complete pricing sending me a message. 

DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO WHERE WE CAN MEET? DO YOU USE SKYPE?

We can meet online through Whatsapp (the best way to connect). As I photograph events and weddings basically I don't need a studio and I work at home which is also my business address and where I edit your fabulous pictures and prepare the final products. I am always open to talking to you on other social platforms too, and you can see my Behind the Scenes and more about my personal life on Instagram. I use my name in all platforms, search for joannapantigoso without spaces.

WHAT ARE YOUR PROFESSIONAL DEGREES, CREDENTIALS, AFFILIATIONS? HAVE YOU TAKEN ANY RECENT EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS OR CLASSES?

My Photography Education is mostly on Photojournalism. I was part of the Photojournalism Workshop in Guatemala (2014). Also, I had an incredible experience at the Foundation Workshop in Mexico. My pictures are a mixture of my past references combined with the story of each couple. I nurture my way to view a wedding with all the information a couple gives me. This way, I use my way to see the light through their eyes.

HOW I AM GOING TO RECEIVE MY IMAGES AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THIS PROCESS?

My usual delivery time is ten days in the case of Half and Full Day weddings. When we have a Multi-Day event, we set this on the contract knowing how many different photographing events.


Keep in mind that you receive image archives on an online gallery in Half Day Events, and I love to give you a present on a personalized keepsake box. You can always ask for shorter events, but boxes are available only for 4 hours or more. On Full Day Weddings, we design an album for you, and design takes time. 


You will receive the design four weeks after the final images and allow us another four weeks to have your album with you after approval. 

DO WE SIGN A CONTRACT? HOW DO WE PAY?

After confirmation that I will be doing your wedding (Thanks a lot!), I send you a Draft of the Wedding Agreement with an Information form (Names, ID, Date, and place of the wedding, time we are starting, and installments we agreed to divide the payment). We meet to sign it in person or send it online to sign and return it. If you have any questions, feel free to send them to me. In the Draft, I stated how I approach postponing. 


On the Draft, there is the bank account and the KvK ID of my business. I prefer you read the contract and agree with it before making any payment. If we need to discuss something, we will do it.


The booking fee is a minimum of 30% of the agreed amount. You will find 30% on your agreement. If you want to make a bigger deposit, please send the correct information on the Factuur and correspondent payment link.



IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT YOURSELF?

I love coffee (flat white), and my cat's name is Gatito. So happy to meet over coffee or a beer. To know more about my daily life, you can see my Behind the Scenes on Instagram stories. The best advice I can give you, no matter who you choose as your wedding photographer, is to look for the one you might get along with. We will spend a day together (maybe more), and sometimes you will give me your phone (for real! this happened!). So meet your photographer if possible in person.

Welcome to my world! And happy to connect with you. I am everyday sharing information on Instagram, which is my preferred platform. You can always DM me to say Hi. In fact, I ask you to do so. Let's talk about how my photography can help you keep those moments in time and send your message through images. If you don't find your desired package here, send me a DM, let's create one for you together :)
