Q. How many hours do you usually set for pictorial before the event proper?
A. We usually arrive at the venue 3 to 4 hours before the event proper/ church ceremony. That is to give time to set up and have the pictorials with the couple and their entourage during the preparation. However, if the event is out of town, we usually leave Legazpi a day before the event proper so we will have ample time to prepare and rest, it is one of the reasons why we usually charge a minimal out-of-town fee.
The client usually provide for accommodation and food for our team of six (6) persons unless it is stipulated otherwise in the contract. We acknowledge the. Client's generosity as always.
Q. How about the permits?
A. With regards to permits, the client is responsible for acquiring all the necessary permits during the photoshoots and events proper. If needed, the client can coordinate with Studiowork Plus to secure the said permits. The permits and the cost of acquiring it will then be charged to the account of the client.
Q: What kind of equipment do you use?
A: We use EOS Canon cameras, prime lenses, (the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II. with battery grip is the new addition to our hardware) , the dependable and fast 1D Mark III Professional Camera. We also use the latest Pocket Wizard FlexTT5 with TT5/TL, flashes, and accessories. If needed; we always have a complete second camera system with us on every session.

Here are some of the available finish of our albums. you can choose from the following custom design and lamination for your taking.
Albums are available in Magnetic and Magazine Type with UV lamination.
The Printing Process:
We usually ask our clients to choose the pictures they want to be included in their Storybook. The lesser the pictures chosen, the bigger the images in the final Storybook will be. We usually submit the initial layout and allowed at least two (2) revisions for free before we print and bind the album. The client reviews the layout, all the details and confirms their approval for us to proceed with the printing process.
Your album can also be custom-made to a special spread book or with a small cut at the center, depending on your taste and style.
Flush Mount Album printed in Metallic paper are also a sure hit to some couples.
Other couples choose a more simple and vintage style for their wedding album.
It is always heartwarming to listen to their love story, their wedding promises and most especially how the couples pronounce their personal Wedding Vows. Here is an example that you may adopt and hopefully will guide you in writing your own affection and love:
( bride's name)________ I been looking forward for this day and that moment has come. I'm so happy to start a new life with you, as husband and wife. I am blessed to have a partner, a wife and most importantly a best friend in you.
(groom's name)________ , Today we begin our great journey together. I promise you these things... I will laugh with you in times of Joy, and comfort you in time of sorrow. I will remain faithful to you, for better or worse , in sickness and in health. You are my best friend. I will always love , honor and respect you.

Engagement shoot on Location:

In keeping with the artistic demands of our clients, we are coming up with a new and exciting layout for this year and the years to come.
Q. What about getting an album?
A. We offer different digital packages to suit your need and budget. each package having a set number of hours, images, and certain number of final pictures in an album. It might be better to get a package that includes an album that the photographer will assemble completely, because most of us never get around to putting our pictures in albums if we have to do it ourselves. Consider ordering parents' albums too. If your parents vision is less than perfect, they would really appreciate getting an album with large photographs so that the faces are easy to see!

The miracle of the expectant mother is one of the most beautiful things in life. Portraits of her during this time can be priceless treasures as they allow the mother to remember the intimate connection she was establishing with her child even before birth. Portraits of all the family members together are a great way to show the love and connection the family has in anticipation of the new arrival. This is a special time for a woman, and I would love to work with you to capture all the love, anticipation, and beauty that you are experiencing during this time in your life.

Q: I am interested in your wedding services and my wedding is out of the country, __________. on __________. Are you available on the said date? We would appreciate if you could give us more information regarding your studio and wedding packages. Do you have the team to give the service requirements for __________ wedding?
A: Through the years, We have been fortunate to document / shoot for fantastic and gorgeous couples from all over the country and I would say we were able to deliver all their requirements we agreed during the pre-production meetings.
Our current projects are couples from different countries and nationalities, from simple wedding ceremonies to the most elaborate wedding receptions. Creating beautiful images usually is the responsibility of the photographer. However, We usually tell our clients that 60-70 percent of the efforts before and during the big event should come from the couple themselves and the rest should come from the suppliers. We truly believed that team spirit could bring the creative minds together and make your wedding day even more special and memorable for everyone who will attend it.
You may choose from the list of packages in our website that would more or less suit your needs and requirements. package E is more or less the most complete and is our best seller and usually would just ADD other options.
Airfare, food and accommodation is also shouldered by the couple. It would be practical to have a photo only or video only package but other couples would insist on taking the photo and video package as it facilitates everything. We can make our team of five or six persons depending on the need and scope of the event.
The mode of payment are as follows:
10,000 Php Resevation fee to block the date (I can send you our bank account later)
50% of the package during the engagement shoot
Full payment a week before the event proper
We usually charge a minimal out of town fee of 10,000 Php
