Here is a quick run-down of the most frequent questions and answers for wedding photographers in Montreal. If you have any other questions that are not listed here, do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail or phone!

  • Can I pick and choose what is in my wedding photography package?

Of course! We offer our basic packages, and we will gladly customize any of our packages to suit your photography and video needs.

  • Who will be taking the photos at my wedding?

Alesya, Phil, Vera and Huy are the lead photographers. We can arrange meetings so you have an opportunity to meet the wedding photographer who will be capturing the images for your event.

  • Should your event last longer than scheduled, will you stay?

If you know your event will be longer than our standard 8 hour photography package, we offer extended reception coverage at a special booking price. We will always come see you before coverage time ends to check if you want extra coverage; at which point extra hours are charged at normal rate.

  • How many photos do you take?

There is no limit to the pictures that we take. In case you are having a very quite wedding and nobody dances like crazy you will have at least 1000 images from the event.

  • What is your payment schedule?

Three equal parts:  one to reserve the day, one at the wedding, the last one when you get the pictures 3-4 weeks after.

  • How long in advance should we book you as our wedding photographer?

To make sure you get to have the photographer you want, you should book more than a year in advance. During the peak wedding season most high quality studios are booked.
La V image accepts booking up to 2 years in advance, please contact us for specific availability.

  • What are the advantages of having two photographers?

We always include two photographers in every package to be able to capture all of the important moments. Also, the photographers work as a team – holding lights, fixing the details, holding the ladder, parking the car.

  • The Ceremony is late in the day, can we arrange to do the couples photos earlier in the day?

Absolutely! It is a very good idea. It will save time and you will be less stressed during the day.

  • Will the wedding photographer travel to my wedding?  How much does that cost?

Yes, we travel anywhere in the world.
Destinations within 1 hour from Montreal are included in our standard rate packages. We will do our best to make the traveling cost as reasonable as possible.

  • If I want to make prints on my own of my pictures, who owns the copyright? 

You can purchase the USB with HD resolution of all your photos or per photo basis. It comes with all the image rights.

  • Is it possible to have both color and black/white photos in my package?

Yes of course!!! It’s very important to have a good variety of color and b&w.  We offer it with every package.

  • How long will it take to get our photos back?

3-4 weeks after the event you get all the images on the USB, 100 retouched prints and the slide show. It will take longer for our albums; the sooner you send us the selection of the photos, the faster it will be!

  • How long will it take to get our video back?

Many of the steps in developing your film lie in your hands. The sooner the team has your music selections and video credits the quicker your film goes into full production.
We aim to have a completed and approved film in 6 months from your event.
