Transcript of Lyn Ismael

  • Seize the moments youll hold dear.

  • Your wedding is going to be one of the most important events in your life. Its going to be a day of happiness full of celebration, love, and merriment. And no doubt, its going to be full of emotions.

    My goal as your photographer is to capture photos that tell your story. Not just how your wedding looked like. But how it felt to you and the people you cared about. Because in life, its not just the material things that matter. Its how you share your life with the people you love.

  • My favourite part by far was how laid back and natural we felt during

    our engagement session. Lyn basically just let us laugh and cuddle and

    dream about our future together, and the photos capture that perfect-

    ly. Nothing felt staged or uncomfortable, and that makes us even more

    excited for our wedding day!

  • ENGAGEMENTSWhy have an engagement session? An Engagement Session allows you to have beautiful pictures together and to express what makes you unique as a couple.

    For example, maybe youre both Foodies. Why not have an Engagement Session at your favourite restaurant? Or in your kitchen, working on a gourmet dish? Or maybe you both love camping. We can pick a spot in the woods, build a campfire and make smores! The possibilities are endless!

    Aside from getting beautiful, professionally done photos of both of you, its also a way for us to get to know each other. The Engagement Session serves as a practice photo shoot so you know what its like to work with me, to prepare you for the big day. To be honest, having a big lens directed at you might be a little intimidating at first. Its my job to make you feel comfortable as much as I can. And the first step towards that is having an Engagement Session.

  • You name an attribute of a fabulous photographer and Lyn has it! From the first instant my husband and I met Lyn we loved her. Lyn has a bubbly personality that really sets you at ease when working with her (especially if you are camera shy like my husband). The attention to detail and creativity that she puts into every ounce of her work is evident in the final product.

    We love how the images tell a story when they are put together- our coffee table book is a story of our wedding day, it is a true work of art and will be cherished for years to come. We are proud to show everyone the images that Lyn created for us; and our family and friends rave about her work. We intend to use Lyn in the future to capture our most im-portant lifetime events- let that be a testament to how much we enjoyed working with her.

    Do not hesitate to book Lyn to document your most cherished memories- you will NOT be disappointed!

  • 1.) How long have you been a wedding photographer?

    Ive been a wedding photographer since 2009. At that time, my wedding brand is under Pink Bliss. I have since re-branded the wedding side of my business to Lyn Ismael.

    2.) What do you mean by Full Day Coverage?

    A Full Day Coverage allows me to fully cover your wedding starting at the getting ready stage and ending later in the night during your wedding recep-tion. As a result, the images you receive from a Full Day Coverage tell a com-plete story of your wedding day. The start time of your coverage depends on when your wedding ceremony is scheduled, and where you are getting ready in relation to your wedding ceremony location. In most cases, bridal coverage starts 3 hours before the ceremony.

    3.) Do you offer engagement sessions too?

    Absolutely! I believe that having an engagement session is a great way to celebrate this milestone in your lives. Its also a fantastic way for me to get to know you as a couple and for you to get used to having your photos taken professionally. Its going to be a little intimidating at first to have a giant lens pointed at you. Thats why its good to have some practice done before your wedding day.

    4.) What is your turnaround time?

    For engagement sessions, my turnaround time is usually 3 weeks. For wed-dings, its 8-10 weeks.

    5.) How do we go about choosing photos for our wedding album?

    After Ive delivered your wedding photos, I will go ahead and design the spreads for your album. Once the spreads are done (usually within 4 weeks), Ill review the spreads with you and you can then let me know what changes you would like. I find this way easier than have you choose all the photos from the start because sometimes, life gets in the way and you may not be able to get back to me with your choices until much later.

    6.) How much time should we schedule for the wedding portraits?

    For family formals, it usually takes 3-5 minutes to photograph each group. So for 10 groups, you are looking at a minimum of 30 minutes if you are organized, or 50 minutes at the most. As for the portraits of you as a couple and the ones with your wedding party, I suggest 1.5-2 hours. The good thing about having a Full Day Coverage is you dont have to worry about paying for enough time. What you only need to do is SCHEDULE YOUR WEDDING TIMELINE realistically.

    7) What happens if you get sick and unable to shoot our wedding?

    I would have to be blind and cripple to stop me from shooting a wedding. But if something unfortunate does happen, I am lucky enough to belong to a network of talented photographers that I can call to cover your wedding. I will do my best not to leave you hanging on your wedding day.

    8.) Do we get the digital negatives from our wedding?

    You have an option to include your digital negatives from the a la carte menu as part of your personalized wedding collection. All digital images will be provided to you in a USB stick, edited, and in hi-res.

    9.) Can we print the images ourselves if we get the digital negatives?

    Yes, you may. I would highly recommend however to order your prints from me if you want your images printed in a high-quality archival paper with accu-rate colour rendition. Prints from a professional lab lasts a lot longer compared to prints from a consumer lab.

    10.) How do we reserve our date?

    Once youve decided that my style of photography is what youre looking for and that I feel that were a great fit for each other, the next thing to do would be to secure your date. To secure your date, I would need a signed copy of the contract plus a 30% retainer fee.

    11.) What is the payment schedule?

    The first 30%, which is the retainer fee, is due when you book your wedding date. The next 40% is due a month before the wedding. The last 30% is due on your wedding day.
