COMMON QUESTIONS // PORTRAIT SESSION

I'm not comfortable in front of the camera...

Don't think about that! I want you to be able to relax and to make you trust me more I always want to take a coffee before we start to shoot. Then you can tell me a bit more about who you are and so on. Then we will have a great time during our photo session. I will never force you to do anything that does not feel like you or uncomfortable. No weird poses and if you don't know how to behave I'll give you some tips. I'm already looking forward to met you!

WHY IS IT EXPENSIVE TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?

Believe it or not, this is a question I hear quite often... The answer is actually very simple; a professional photographer who work with photography as their main profession need to have food on their tables just as anyone else. There are a lot of expenses for us just as there are for anyone who has their own company. The conclusion is that if we are going to be able to pay ourselves a monthly salary (a decent one) we need to cover our costs and end up with a positive result. In the end a lot of photographers are way to cheap with their prices, so be happy it's not higher. I always say that you get the service and quality you pay for and that's very true.

WHY SHOULD I NOT HIRE MY FRIEND WHO HAS A CAMERA?

You are so lucky if you have a friend that would take your photos basically for free... That doesn't always mean you get the same quality or experience. A person who work as a professional photographer does that for a reason and want you to have the best possible experience. We are also pretty damn good at making you feel comfortable and just amazing in front of the camera.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

I have chosen not to write my prices on my website, because a photo session is about so much more than just money. My cheapest package starts at 195 € for a portrait session. If you want more information about this you are welcome to contact me at contact@oliviahenningsson.com.

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF VIENNA?

ADDITIONAL COSTS?

Yes! I love to travel! My prices includes travel costs within Vienna and the public transport system. If an additional cost for tickets (train tickets or flight tickets) is needed, that amount will be added on the final invoice and you as a customer pay for that as an addition to the price for the photo session.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT'S BAD WEATHER?

No worries! There is no bad weather, only bad clothes... No, I'm kidding! Of cause I'm not going to force you to pose in the rain or freeze to death in the icy wind. If we are unlucky with the weather forecast there will always be the possibility to reschedule our photo session. I want you to have a pleasant experience and the best possible result!

WHAT IS A GOOD LOCATION FOR OUR PHOTO SESSION?

A good location for your portrait session would be, according to me, one of your favorite locations where you can feel relaxed. It could be in your home, in the nature somewhere or in town. There will always be a spot where we can find good light.

COMMON QUESTIONS // WEDDING

WHY IS IT EXPENSIVE TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WEDDINGPHOTOGRAPHER?

Believe it or not, this is a question I hear quite often... The answer is actually very simple; a professional photographer who work with photography as their main profession need to have food on their tables just as anyone else. There are a lot of expenses for us just as there are for anyone who has their own company. The conclusion is that if we are going to be able to pay ourselves a monthly salary (a decent one) we need to cover our costs and end up with a positive result. In the end a lot of photographers are way to cheap with their prices, so be happy it's not higher. I always say that you get the service and quality you pay for and that's very true. I always like to pay a bit more if I get great service!

WHY SHOULD I NOT HIRE MY FRIEND WHO HAS A CAMERA?

You are so lucky if you have a friend that would take your photos basically for free... That doesn't always mean you get the same quality or experience. A person who work as a professional photographer does that for a reason and want you to have the best possible experience. We are also pretty damn good at making you feel comfortable and just amazing in front of the camera. In case of you are considering this for your wedding, take a moment and think about if you really want to take that risk? What if you can never get those moments back? That's why you should let someone who is a pro make your moments as memorable as possible.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

I have chosen not to write my prices on my website, because a photo session is about so much more than just money. My smallest package starts at 1000 € for a wedding portrait session + ceremony (4 hours). If you want more information about my different packages you are welcome to contact me at contact@oliviahenningsson.com.

Golden Hour

If we have the weather on our side I really really really recommend that we take some minutes to walk outside just before the sun disappears and take some more pictures in the sunset. I can promise you that these pictures will be magical and are the ones you want to hang on your walls at home.

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF VIENNA?

ADDITIONAL COSTS?

Yes, I would travel anywhere for love! My prices includes travel costs within Vienna and the public transport system. If an additional cost for tickets (train tickets, flight tickets or a hotel night) is needed, that amount will be added on the final invoice and you as a customer pay for that as an addition to the price for the photo session.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT'S BAD WEATHER?

No worries! There is no bad weather, only bad clothes... No, I'm kidding! Of cause I'm not going to force you to pose in the rain or freeze to death in the icy wind. If we are unlucky with the weather forecast we will have a plan B location indoor, in a barn or something similar for the wedding portrait session. You always have to be prepared for the worst and we will plan everything together. Using an umbrella can also be a funny twist according to me. I want you to have a pleasant experience and the best possible result!

WHAT IS A GOOD LOCATION FOR OUR Wedding Portrait SESSION?

A good location for a wedding portrait session according to me is a place where we can find variation and shadow. Usually I prefer to photograph the portraits in nature and a magnificent place can make a big difference. I always prefer to travel to the location for your wedding before your day (if it's not to far away) and check out where we can take your wedding portraits. I prefer to have a clean background so all the focus will be on you and your love for each other. A clean background could be in the forest line, by the ocean, a one colored wall or a wall with some texture. We will of cause plan all of this together and agree on a location before your big day.
