Frequently Asked Questions Answers Anthony Callej

A: My Photo Sessions are base on time and include an SD Card with all of the high-resolution unedited 22-megapixel images right out of the camera. Given at the end of the photo session. Most of my Customers ask... How am I able to offer this? I photograph every Photo Session with a Canon 5D Mark 3 and the Sony A7 3 which have 2 card slots, one card with the Raw files and another with the High-Resolution Jpeg files. I also work with an assortment of Lenses, changing the perspective of the image several times during my Photo Sessions. I pay extra attention to the little details during the Photo Session, which makes a huge difference with the end product. What sets me apart from other Oahu Hawaii Photographers is, I photographed with film for most of my Photography Career, which disciplined me towards getting it right every time, straight out of the camera. Most photographers offer a Disc of some of the Proofs which you will receive in 2 to 3 weeks later. You might be able to find Family Portrait Photographers on Oahu who advertises for less, but I don't think you'll find any Photographer out there who offers a better value. I photograph every photo Session personally and works very hard at every photo session. You will receive a Copyright for Reprinting.

A: Typically, I first exchange questions and answers with each customer to discuss their vision for the photos session. This includes your how many individuals would be present for the session, preferred package, location, date, time. I also encourage my customers to schedule a phone call so I may answer all of their questions. Once the details are ironed out I'll email you an agreement and invoice. From there I'll send you a link with clothing ideas and how to get ready for your photo session.

A: I have been a portrait photographer all of my life. I went to college in the 1980's and studied photography at San Francisco Community College.

Anthony Calleja Frequently Asked Questions Answers

Wedding Day Questions:

A: For a variety of reasons, we have to charge for the time in between events. The fact is, we're never truly resting during the day, whether we're backing up images, setting up for the second venue, traveling to the second location, taking venue shots, or making up for lost photo time because of wedding day delays. In many cases, we use that ""downtime"" to take you and your significant other out for a photo session or more family portraits.

A: We understand that not everything goes as planned during a wedding. We never pack up before the contracted time, and moreover, we're not leaving on the dot when the contracted time is up. Instead, we will ask you at the end of your contracted time whether or not you would like to extend. If you would like us to stay, we will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 15-minute increment.
