1. Introduction: What's your story?

We're Will and Ilaria, the creatives behind the camera at 4Karma. Together we make a great team and would love to meet with you and capture your moment! We have over six years of experience in the wedding industry and more than 12 years with videography and photography for private and corporate events, live music and commercial. Because of this, we’re able to be confident and familiar with a very wide range of wedding styles and sizes. With an adventurous spirit and a taste for the theatrical, we aim to not just capture a wedding day but produce a quality piece of cinema that stuns our couples and their families every time they watch it. We focus on making our couples at ease in front of our lenses so that they can put in no effort and just be themselves.

2. How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?

We have over six years of experience in the wedding industry and more than 12 years with videography and photography for private and corporate events, live music, and commercials. We photographed at least 35 weddings per year.

3. How would you describe your photography style?

All our styles are focused on you, your family, and the most important day of your life.

7. Do you charge a travel fee? For what distance? What does that cover?

Usually, we do not charge a travel fee, we prefer to book more weddings in the same area, but sometimes it's not possible and in that case, we need to add some expenses. Our travel fees are very low and flexible, and we'd like to keep them within our clients' budget if we can.

We hand edit every single picture that we deliver. We also create some signature photos for each client based on your theme wedding, colors, and location. Usually we deliver in 2/3 weeks in Jan, Feb, March, Oct, Nov, and Dec. 5/6 weeks in Apr, May, June, July, Aug, and Sept.

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

We understand things happen, we always appreciate as much notice as possible! If our clients reschedule to a day we still have available there's no extra charge. We require a non-refundable deposit, so if our clients cancel they can transfer that to another shoot, otherwise we won't be giving a refund on that portion.
