Frequently asked questions

Hello. How are you?

I’m great!! Thank you for being here.

Are you the same person behind Ella Photography?

Thank you for noticing. Yes. I am! This website is more for Elopements, destination weddings and lifestyle sessions. It’s a more natural (and raw) style of photography. I’m still the same ol’ bubbly self, however.

Do you travel for weddings?

Absolutely. I already traveled all over the place. I’ve been all over Canada, Costa Rica, Punta Cana, Portugal, Italy and even had a wedding at Disney world! I absolutely love traveling and I reserve it for my weddings. If you are getting married in a place I haven’t been, chances are, you’ll get a pretty good deal on the package.

How many weddings do you book per year

I only take a maximum of 20 weddings per year. This is to make sure that my attention is focused on my brides and grooms. Too many weddings are too much retouching! I also only book 1 wedding per week end. That way it’s about you and only you.

DO YOU RETOUCH ALL THE PICTURES?

Retouching is a complicated word. It often gets mistaken with Color-processing. No. I do not retouch the images from your session/wedding. I do, however, color-correct them. This means that I bring them in Adobe Lightroom and change the color, white balance and retouch a few obvious blemishes that you may have on important photos. But that’s it. All the photos that you see on my website are color-corrected. Unless it’s BOUDOIR. that, I bring into Abode Photoshop and do retouching for you.

DO YOU GIVE COLOR AND BLACK AND WHITE?

No. The reason for this is simple. Black and White photos have a timeless feel to it. Although i loooveee Black and White, I feel like not every photo deserves to be converted. In short, 85% of your photos will be in beautiful color, and you will receive the black and white version of the photos that deserve that classic feel.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT YOU TO RETOUCH MY PHOTOS? WILL MY PRICES BY CHEAPER?

Nop, I do not give out photos that aren’t retouched. Never.

DO WE GET THE HIGH-RESOLUTION FILES?

Yes, the High-Rez digital files in the Gallery are available in all of my packages. Images are selected and edited at my discretion. I reserve the right to edit and release only those images deemed creditable as professional in quality and within my artistic standards. For Portrait and Lifestyle sessions, photos are sold separately. Those sessions have a sitting fee pricing and then, images can be either purchased separately or in bulk.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU END UP WITH ?

For weddings, there’s an average of between 50-70 images per hour – more than a photo per minute! So you don’’t have to worry, your event will be very well documented! Final amount can vary between 500-900 for weddings and 75-200 for Lifestyle sessions. Boudoir are all sold seperately.

WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BOOK YOU ON MY SESSION?

I require a 500$ deposit for small weddings along with a signed contract to book the date. This deposit makes sure that I book your wedding date in my calendar for you. It promises you that all my time will be given to you. The remaining balance due 7 days prior to the wedding date. Please remember that dates are limited. They are first-come, first-serve … booked once I receive the contract and reservation fee.

For sessions, there’s a 100$ deposit and a signed contract to book it. The balance is due on the day of the session and can be paid by Interac E-transfer, personal check or cash.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH NEWBORNS ?

No sorry, I don’t. I feel that to get the best photographs, you need to specialize in something and I choose lifestyle. I feel that it’s very important to find someone who is specialized in Newborns to trust with your little one. It could be dangerous for the baby if not! Newborn photography has to have a studio with the right temperature, has to have safety measures and requires a LOT of retouching. Most of the photos you see online are COMPOSITES. Noone should EVER leave a hand off the baby. If you are looking to getting photos of your little one, let me know and I’ll help you find the perfect photographer for you. Be aware of photographers that don’t use safety as a priority.

WHAT DO WE DO IF IT IS RAINING ON THE DAY OF OUR SESSION?

Generally, if it is just a light mist, we can proceed with the session. We actually shot a few weddings in the rain and the pictures turned out amazing! Bring along a clear umbrella just in case! I take couples inside local coffee shops, under bridges etc. until the rain passes. However, in the case of heavy downpours, we will re-schedule the session for another time. Despite what some people may think, cloudy days are fantastic for photos. Especially with my style of photography, which is much moodier than most.

I HEARD YOU MOSTLY SHOOT AT SUNSETS, IS THAT TRUE?

YES! Photography is very tricky and it doesn’t happen by Magic! If you like my work and want me to photograph you or your family in my style.. we shoot at sunset. Mid-day has very harsh and white lighting and it just doesn’t produce the same type of photos… so… that’s it! Sunset! For more info.. contact me! If you have any other questions, Just contact me using the CONTACT ME button.

Where do you shoot your boudoir sessions?

In your own home! The reason is simple. I want to photograph you in your environment. I want to show you that where you live, and how you live, is amazing. With my other photography company, I photographed people in my bright white studio. It’s was beautiful, however, every photo looked the same. A part of you is lost in that type of situation and my goal is really to photography YOU.

Trust me, you won’t regret it.
