Information

What is your style of photography?

Modern, beautiful, candid, romantic, stylish and creative. Every member of the team have a style is a blend of documentary-style photojournalism and traditional portraiture so you have a diverse collection of images you will love for years to come.

What gear do you use?

Gina and Jaran use Canon 5d Mark IIs and a range of Canon lenses with 2-3 cameras on-hand during weddings. Mambo uses top of the range Nikon gear.

Are your packages flexible?

Yes, totally. Packages (and prices) can be customized depending on your needs. The number of photos included is just a guideline and you will get a lot more photos than the guaranteed number. If you have an idea for props or destinations for your photo shoot please let me know. I will do my best to make your vision happen.

Photo shoots are casual and relaxed and I will help with poses if this is your first professional photo shoot. I don’t watch the clock so if your package is up to 3 hours and you need me for a little longer I am perfectly happy. Extra coverage at receptions is the only time I charge overtime.

What post-production do you do?

All images are fine-tuned for color and brightness and cropped if needed. Many images are artistically edited and retouched. A selected number of images are processed in black & white with color duplicates. Your DVD will contain large files for printing and duplicate small files for email/blogging.

Is hair and make-up included?

I prefer to work with Lisa Allen who is an amazing MUA, hair designer and fashion stylist from England. We have separate businesses so please contact her for a price. She’s very busy so be sure to book in advance. If Lisa is already booked come back to me and I will arrange a good Thai make-up artist for you.

When can I get the photos?

I will deliver your photos to your resort if time allows. Otherwise photos will be posted via registered mail within 2-3 weeks. I will send you a sample of 3-4 photos within a few days because I know you can’t wait! And as soon as your online gallery is ready I will send you an email.

FAQ FOR BRIDES AND GROOMS

Do I need to pay a deposit?

A deposit of 10,000 baht is required to secure the date for weddings and bridal shoots and can be paid with credit card, Pay Pal or bank transfer. Full payment is due at the pre-wedding day meeting or on the wedding day.

As the deposit is to secure the date and services it isn’t refundable.

Do you use a second photographer?

Yes, we often work in teams of 2-3 depending on factors such as guest numbers, venue and if you have a video team there also.

Can we rent gowns and suits from you?

I have a small collection of wedding gowns or I can take you to Phuket Town to find a rental dress and suit. The cost starts at about 6,000 baht for the bride.

Do you organize weddings?

Yes, Gina is also a wedding planner and you can pop over to The Romance Planners if you need help coordinating your wedding day.

Can we have traditional portraits taken at our wedding?

After the ceremony I suggest the following: group shot, all family, bride’s family, groom’s family, all friends, bride and groom with parents. Then we go off for bridal party photos. There is plenty of time at the reception for other combinations but we can do more after the ceremony if you wish. If you have a large group please supply me with a list of the group shots you require.

Do you photograph weddings around Thailand and overseas?

Yes, we take bookings for destination weddings. We have travelled to Bali, Singapore, Korea, New Zealand and Vietnam for destination weddings.

We are available for destination weddings anywhere in the world. Please contact info@ginasmithphotography.com with details for a customized quote.
