General FAQs

Do you shoot destination weddings?

Yes, and I love it! I'm a travel lover, so I am always very grateful for all the opportunities that have been enabling me to explore other parts of the world. So take me with you to your favorite places! :)

Do you work with a second photographer?

It depends on the amount of people at the event and the program of the day, if there are events that overlap. Normally for weddings and other celebrations with more than 100 guests I suggest booking a second photographer, to guarantee we capture all the important moments.

Can I extend the session on the day of?

It depends on my availability, but generally speaking yes, I am open to that. For each additional hour I charge extra, with the value corresponding to the standard hourly rate of the photo service requested.

Do you also offer wedding albums?

At the moment, I don't offer wedding albums.

How long will it take to get my photos?

This really depends on the type of project and my current schedule. Get in touch with me to receive that information.

How do I get my photos afterwards?

You will receive the photos in digital format through an online gallery, from which you’ll be able to download the files.

In which languages do you work?

English, German, Spanish and Portuguese. I really enjoy being in intercultural environments. :)

How long do you store the files?

For a minimum of 6 months.

Do you give out raw, unedited files?

No. Raw or unedited images do not represent the work of a photographer. I like to use the painter’s metaphor as an explanation - no one would ask a painter to share her/his painting without having finished it. The same applies to the art of photography.

Do you edit all our photographs?

Yes!

Can we see all the images that didn’t make the “final cut”?

No. A part of my job is to create a selection of images from the pile of photos that I took. This gives you a perfect curated selection of final pictures that best tell your story.

Can we provide you a list of certain scenes/ people that we want to have photographed?

Definitely! If you know which moment, people or details you want to have covered it makes my job more effective and gets you what you want.

Do you travel for photoshoots outside of Berlin?

Yes!

Cancellation and booking policy

What is your booking and payment policy?

I try to make the booking process as easy as possible.
After describing your request via email, phone or in person meeting, I’ll send you a personalised offer and a deposit invoice. Once the deposit is paid, your session is booked.

I normally ask for a deposit of 50% the total value upfront, in the moment I share the offer, in order to reserve the date. And the remaining 50% to be paid upon delivery of the final photos.

What if you get sick and can’t document our wedding?

I will make sure to provide a suitable, replacement photographer with a similar photo style.

What happens if we go over the contracted amount of time?

Depending on my availability, we can agree on extending our photo session. For each additional hour I charge an extra value. The amount varies according to the photo service.

What forms of payment do you accept?

You will receive an invoice with my bank details. If a bank transfer is not convenient for you, just let me know and together we will find the best way to make the payment.

How do I book a photoshoot?

Just send me a message to anacftorres@gmail.com with your request!

Do you have a question?

Vix ut utinam feugait. Eu scribentur liberavisse nec. Dico fugit nostro cu pri, no putent nemore mel, ius at minim molestiae

Licensing and social media

Do I own the copyright of my photos once you deliver them to me?

No. Under copyright law, all images remain the property of Ana Torres Photography. As a customer you get the right of use and you can freely use the images for your own social media channels, website and printing materials like photo albums for personal use. However, these images cannot be used for commercial purposes without explicit permission from the photographer.

Will my photos appear on your website?

Potentially yes. As photography is a visual product, people can only get an idea of what I offer if I share my work on my webpage. If you want the exclusive picture rights and don’t want them to be on my webpage, you can purchase an extra license for them.

Can I print the photos that you deliver to me?

Yes! You are free to print all the images for your personal use.
