CONTACT

Where are you located?

We are Brooklyn boys, but we are available worldwide! Just pick the time and the place, and we will see you there!

Who will be shooting my wedding day?

We offer packages with the founder and lead photographer, Gui Benites, as well as packages with our awesome associate photographers.

What is your photography and editing style?

Our style consists of a modern journalistic eye with a touch of fashion.

What camera gear do you use?

Here at 98 Wedding Co. we only use high-end full-frame cameras and Prime lenses AKA very expensive stuff!

Do we need a second shooter?

We do like to recommend hiring a second shooter for larger wedding parties to ensure that we will capture all the details, but since every wedding is different, we always approach this during the booking process to make sure that you will have what works best for YOUR wedding.

What if our photographer is sick or unable to shoot our wedding?

This has never happened (knock on wood!), but if it does, we will make every effort to find a photographer (who you agree on), that we trust and shoots the same photography style as us.

Do you have reviews from past couples?

Absolutely, that’s one of the most important tools we have to show how pleased our clients are with the outcome of our work. You can see some reviews here, to visit our reviews page on our website or click here, to go to our The Knot page and see more!

My partner isn't really into taking photos, can you give us directions?

Of course! Most of our clients have never had any experience in front of the camera, and it’s not their job to know how to model. So, we are always going to be sure to guide in a fun and easy-going way to make sure that we get pictures that are not only natural but also flattering for everybody.

I love your candid style but can you also take poses photos?

Sure! Our approach is very photo journalistic and natural, but we always like to make sure we get some portraits that are a little more formal for every wedding. In fact, we request a list of formal family portraits to make sure to get photos that cater to every need.

Do you have any timeline examples?

Yes, we do! You can request a timeline example send us an email, and we will be more than happy to help you out with that if you have any questions or need any help.

How do we book with you and how do we pay?

To lock in your date, we need a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable deposit. All payments can be made via Venmo, Paypal, and  check.

Do you have business insurance?

We sure do! Our insurance covers up to 2 million dollars, and we are always able to provide a custom COI if needed for the venue.

Do you travel and do destination weddings?

Yes! Yes! Yes! We love traveling and shooting weddings all over the world, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you are planning something special in a different city or even a different country!

Do you shoot engagement sessions?

Yes, we love shooting engagement sessions, and we highly recommend doing those! It’s a great way to meet the couple beforehand and help them be more comfortable in front of the camera. Some of our packages already include a complimentary engagement session, but if you book a smaller wedding package, we can offer you an engagement session at a discounted rate.

Where/when do you shoot engagements?

We’ve been obsessed with in-home engagement sessions lately! But, if you’ve got a cute spot, we are always down to shoot them anywhere in the city. Our favorite time to shoot is 1 or two hours before the sunset, but we can always coordinate and find what time works best for both of us.

How will we receive our images and how many photos will you deliver? How long does it usually take to receive our photos?

You will receive an online gallery where you be able to download, print, and share all of your pictures, but we also offer add on albums. The total number of photos depends a lot on how long the wedding day is, but we usually count at least 100 per hour. We will send you a sneak peek the week after the wedding so you can see and share some memories of your exciting day and the full gallery 4 to 6 weeks after the wedding day.

Can I see a full wedding gallery?

Absolutely, we have quite a few galleries available on the website, but you can request to see full client galleries, and we will be more than happy to send you some.

Do you give out the raw files?

We do not give out the raw files for various reasons. Besides the fact that raw files take up A LOT of space on your computer, they do not represent our work completely. Editing and photo selection is a crucial part of our process, and we need to be sure to protect our work, our brand, and the standard for our final images. As we try to capture as much as possible but sometimes, photos come out with closed eyes, blurry focuses, and non-optimal chin positions. The RAW files are a means to an end in photography, and we want to be sure to give you the finished, most beautiful images possible.

Do you shoot video too?

Yes, we do! We have fallen in love with the world of cinematography, and we offer special packages for videos. You can see some of the videos we’ve done here.¬†Please don’t hesitate to inquire for videos!
