Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve put so much time and effort into planning your wedding and you’ll want every special moment for your photos. But how do you know which photographer is right for you? So you need to do your homework.

Here are the questions you should ask to your photographer who’ve made your short list, to ensure that the one you ultimately choose is a good fit for you and your wedding.

What should I look for when choosing a wedding photographer?

First of all, we would like to see as many wedding photographs and wedding photographers as possible. The human eye can tell the difference right away. The more you examine the portfolio of many photographers, the better.

Second, the breadth of the portfolio of wedding photographers is important. It is not enough to share only a lot of photos, in addition, you have to look at whether there are different photographs from other photographers.

Last and most important is communication. While living one of the most important days of your life, a wedding photographer who would put you and your partner in a strange and disturbing presence would not be nice. The best way to understand this is by looking at the face expressions in the photographs. If the face expressions of Bride, Bridesmaids and Groomsmen are natural, if the smiles are warm and warm, then there is a good communication with the wedding photographer.

What is Wedding Story?

The wedding story is to photograph your special day in the form of a documentary starting from the morning (usually from the hairdresser) until the first dance or your wedding ceremony.

How can we get the information of your packages, prices and all other details?

Very simple. You can contact us directly by sending an email or by filling out our contact form, by phone, or by sending a direct message through the WhatsApp messaging application. You will be returned to us as soon as possible. You can reach us fastest through WhatsApp.

Can we meet with the photographer before the day?

On your first appointment with erhan Boz Photography, you will meet with the photographer. Your initial meeting will include discussions on the date, venue and time of your Wedding. This is also the perfect opportunity to book a pre-wedding shoot, if this is something you might be considering.

How do you make wedding photographs unique to the couple?

Upon several meetings and discussions about what YOU want from the photography, we ensure to gain a through understanding of your expectations. We create unique images to you and your location, we put energy into creating new boundaries to capture emotional images, this enables you to stand out in the crowd on a personal level. We easily adapt to surroundings and change of any unplanned suprises, our importance is to make you happy and find unique shots that are unforgettable.

How many days before should I have to make a reservation?

Every year hundreds of couples getting married in Bodrum, Turkey and they mostly prefer the summer season. The majority of wedding days are Friday - Saturday and Sunday. As a result, popular wedding venues, fine music bands and well-known photographers are very popular at the weekends and are closed before the end of the month.

There were many couples who booked their wedding photographer a year before the wedding. We recommend that you make sure that your wedding photographer is also available when your wedding date is finalized.

There are so many photographers out there. How would you pick?

In the mid-June of 2012, I got married, and went through the same process that you're going through now. Looking through wedding venues, the best wedding photographers, budgeting a million things, gasping at how much rentals cost, etc. Here's the deal. I knew that the photographers I'd be considering would be one of the people I'd be spending the most time with on my wedding day. They'll be close in proximity to me and my wife, so I wanted him to be someone that fits a specific criteria:

Personality:

I have a Type A personality and Type B demeanor. That’s why I provide a detailed timeline to all of my couples within a few days of booking, because I know I’d want one too. I’d also want to make sure that my photographer is someone I can trust, makes me feel important, shares the same enthusiasm about my wedding day, and is genuinely helpful. But most importantly, I’d want my photographer to be someone that I like and am comfortable around. I know that if I like my photographer as a person, it's a great start to receiving photographs I'll love!

Portfolio:

After I know that I can connect with my photographer, I'm looking at their photographs. The way they tell a story. The 'lens' they see through. I’d want to know if their photographs reflect the type of images that I’d want to see on my walls for decades to come and would want to share with my kids and grandkids. I’d look for someone who takes simple, elegant photos that capture the rare and raw emotion of the day with a candid style that won’t be outdated a few years down the road. I’m known for photographing weddings as they unfold without interference, while looking for the best light and composition to make you look your best.

Price:

Wedding photography is like most other things in life- you get what you pay for. A budget photographer would need to take on a part-time job or have to book a large amount of couples to support themselves, which means less time to spend on their craft, and more importantly, less time to focus on you- the ones getting married.

On the other hand, a competitively-priced photographer would be able to support themselves with just wedding photography, which means a photographer who has more time to spend on their craft- ultimately resulting in happy couples with a wonderful experience and beautiful photos.

erhan Boz Photography is a destination wedding photographer based in Bodrum, and has been photographing professionally since 2010. If you're looking for some of the best wedding photography in Bodrum, you're looking in the right place!

Should we have pre-wedding photography or videography before the wedding?

Under different names, pre-wedding photography and video shootings became very popular. I strongly recommend these shots, which I think they are a great opportunity to show both before the knot and the moment in the future.

How many photos do you take on our wedding day?

As far as wedding photography is concerned, it is not quality but quality. The more number of photos, the better your wedding photos will not be. On the contrary, I can even say that there is an inverse proportion.

I do not like to give a definite number, but I can say that we will shoot a minimum of 900-1000 photographs for your wedding day.

Which camera, equipment do you use?

"If the best typewriter had written the most beautiful novel, the best photographer would have taken the most beautiful photograph" (Ara Güler)

but I still answer, I use Nikon Full Frame bodies and top-of-the-range series lenses. (Nikon D7100 + 50 mm Portrait Nikkor + 18-205 mm Nikkor etc.)

When can we receive our wedding photos or videos after our wedding?

All of your wedding photos and videos will be ready after 2-3 weeks of your wedding day at the latest. Your photos and videos are delivered to you with a portable usb drive. If you are not able to be in Bodrum after your wedding, all the photos will be sent to your email addres via wetransfer for you to download all the photos to your computer.

All photos taken on your special day are also sent in their actual size and raw photos as well.

If you are planning to have your wedding album, you should decide which photos to use on the album by choosing from the photos we sent to you. The design and printing period of the wedding album is also determined as maximum 1 month.

We might feel uncomfortable having a photographer with us all day long? What do you think?

In this regard, many of our couples are hesitating before their wedding day. For many years we have taken wedding photos, so you do not see us as photographers because of our experiences. We are like a best man with you as those who have been in so many weddings before.

Do you provide photography and videography services outside of Bodrum and Turkey?

We can travel outside of Bodrum and Turkey for all your photography and videography sessions.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

Because we do not double-book dates, once we are committed to your date, we will reject all future work for that date. Therefore, the deposit fee is considered non-refundable.

Is it okay if other people take photos while you're taking photos?

It is fine for family and friends to photograph during the wedding, but not from the same angle that we will be shooting from. Family and friends are welcome to shoot from either side, but not in front of or behind us.

Because our expert techniques in posing couples and groups are a part of the talents and skills we bring to the table to create his wonderful compositions, we would prefer and appreciate that family and friends do not take photos from our vantage point, and in places that might interfere with our commitment to give you the best wedding photos possible.

Are you available for a face-to-face meeting before our wedding day?

Yes! We prefer to meet with our potential clients before their wedding day, to get a feel for the personal style of each couple, and bring that into play to help them get precisely the wedding photos they’ve always dreamed of. This is a perfect time to ask any and all questions you might have about our work and working style.

How much is the Deposit Fee required to save our wedding date?

We require %50 deposit fee to hold your wedding date.

Will YOU be the photographer at my wedding if I book you?

Yes! My favorite part of being a wedding photographer is photographing. I will not be sending another photographer to be representing erhan Boz Photography, so I’ll see you there!

Can you do the printing for us?

Of course! But I give you the digital files so that you have options. Because you have full rights to use the images, and can work with them in any way you’d like, you can save money. I will also post some edited images in an online gallery that friends and family will be able to purchase prints from, to make things easier for everyone.
