1. Introduction: What's your story?
Hello, I'm Igor, owner and lead photographer of IGOR Photography. I have been shooting weddings for over 10 years and it's been a joyful and inspiring journey. I'm in love with celebrations and people in love!
I have been a photographer since I could hold a camera, at the beginning I was shooting all the most random things, don't judge me. My wedding photography career started when I was asked by a friend to shoot his wedding, afterwards I started to get more and more inquires from friends and from friends of friends. It took off organically, so I started my own wedding photography business, and I haven't looked back since then.
2. How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?
I have been shooting weddings since 2006, I have shot several hundred weddings under my belt. It never gets old, each wedding is unique, people are unique and enjoy the celebrations and emotions that weddings display. I have been fortunate to shoot all kind of weddings, from small intimate backyard weddings to grand weddings at exotic locations. Most of my weddings are local in Dallas-Fort Worth, but I do occasionally shoot some destination weddings.
3. How would you describe your photography style?
My style is a combination of fashion editorial and photojournalistic. The portraits and my signature wedding scenes are dramatic, romantic and passionate, but the most important part of the actual wedding day is to capture the candid and natural moments of the day as it unfolds. I'm always looking for details and moments that are unique, funny and original.
4. How well in advance should couples book their wedding photographer?
You should always try to book your photographer right after your venue, preferably 6-12 months in advance. I usually book my Saturdays 8-12 months out, so it's definitely smart to book your preferred vendors well in advance.
5. What are the different packages that you offer and which one is your most popular package?
I have several wedding collections to choose between, including photo and video. The advantage of the collections are that they are inclusive and are discounted and offer the best "bang for your buck". I also offer custom collections a la carte to suit each couple's needs and wants.
My most popular collection is my Platinum Collection for $3995, and includes 8 hours, engagement/bridal session, 12x12 wedding album, printing rights, private online gallery, and video discount.
6. Are you the wedding photographer who will be shooting on the wedding day? Who else is there in your team?
Yes, I'm the main wedding photographer, and I have several team members that shoot with me including very experienced second photographers and videographers.
Most of the time, I recommend at least 2 photographers for most weddings, and one videographer if you want a small video production. We will tailor the team to your wedding in order to cover it the best way possible.
7. Do you charge a travel fee? For what distance? What does that cover?
We don't charge any travel fees within 100 miles of the metroplex. We love to shoot destination weddings, just ask us and we will provide you with a custom quote.
8. Are albums or prints included in your packages?
Albums and prints are included depending of the Collection that you choose. You can always add custom albums and print products before or after the wedding. We have many samples available to view in our studio.
9. How long after the wedding will the couple receive the images? How will they be delivered?
Depending of the workload of the season you will receive your photos and video in 1-3 months after the wedding. They will be delivered via your private online gallery, or via a USB Drive.
10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?
You can cancel us up to 6 weeks before the wedding day. You will get back all the paid money except the booking retainer.
All monies shall be refunded and the Agreement become null and void if an act of God or other catastrophe necessitates
cancellation, or in case of death or serious illness to either party or their immediate families up to four days before the wedding.
Such cancellation must be in writing and a registered professional shall attest to the illness or death referenced as the reason.
