style
What is your approach to photographing weddings? What is your style?

Our style is journalistic and unobtrusive. We shoot unique fashion inspired images nothing too forced or contrived, just super cool natural imagery for you to cherish for the rest of your lives.

We tend to shoot a great deal of natural candid shots of the day capturing all the little details. The discreet way in which we work means that we blend seamlessly into the surroundings instantly making you and your guests feel relaxed and comfortable in our company.

While the majority of the day is shot in a documentary style, we do ask for one hour to spend with the couple alone to shoot some beautiful casually posed images of the bride and groom. These are relaxed pictures of the bride and groom interacting naturally.

Our photos tell a unique story that elegantly captures the sense of love and fun of your day. We document real emotions and authentic moments of the occasion, the result is both timeless and meaningful.




Do you take posed family photos?

Yes, while our style is documentary we think it is important to capture a few formal family portraits. Before the wedding we will send you a questionnaire with suggested family groupings, you can add or subtract from that. Long shot lists are not recommended and take away valuable time from documenting your day. We suggest eleven groupings which are all done very quickly so your family and friends can get back to the party and enjoy a cocktail.




coverage

Please email us at joe@madrigalfilm.com and we will send you a full list of our collections, rates, and availability. We know every wedding is unique and can tailor a custom collection to meet the needs of your day.




Where are you located? Where do you primarily photograph? Are there travel costs?

We live in Brooklyn and often work all over the NYC, Long Island, West Chester, Hudson Valley, Upstate New York, New Jersey, Connecticut & Pennsylvania. We also have homes in Miami & Western New York.

If your wedding takes place in any of the above places there are no travel fees. If your wedding is in South Florida or Western NY there are no travel costs (we always love an excuse to visit our family & friends outside NYC).




Do you travel for out of state or destination weddings? How does that work?

Yes, our work has taken us from Amsterdam to Punta Cana. We have traveled around the world and love shooting out of state and destination weddings.

If air fare, taxis, rental cars, and hotels are necessary you simply reimburse us for the expenses.




Who will be photographing the wedding?

Danielle Terenzio and Jarreau Joseph Weber




Are the final images edited and retouched?

Yes, every image is edited by hand. We do not ‘batch process’ or ‘bulk edit’ — every image gets individual attention.

Retouching is very different from editing and requires greater time and level of skill. We often select a few special images from each wedding to retouch. We do edit & retouch every image that goes into your printed album.




We would like a few images retouched is that possible?

We professionally retouch every image that goes into your printed wedding album. If you would like additional images retouched we charge an additional fee per hour.




How long will it take to get my images and album?

Online galleries are posted within six to eight weeks after the wedding. Wedding albums are delivered within 12 weeks of the final album approval.




Where is the online gallery? How do I access my images?

The online gallery is a private password protected section on our website where you can view and download your images. With the password your family and friends can also view your images. You can also order prints and select album prints directly from this gallery.




How many photographs will I receive?

Every wedding is different and depends on several things such as number of guests and hours of coverage. That said, the minimum amount of photographs delivered is 500 for an seven hour wedding.




Do we get RAW files?

No, RAW files are unprocessed unedited images.




Do you photograph the rehearsal?

Rehearsal coverage is available if you would like to add it to your collection. Otherwise we do not attend the rehearsal.




Where can we get our photos printed?

You can order prints through us. Each print is hand retouched. We will also provide you a list of resources from which to get high quality prints — the choice is yours!




Do you ever shoot film?

No.




How long do you photograph for?

Our collections start at 7 hours (not including travel time). If you are running over time and want us to stay we can absolutely accommodate. We do have an overtime rate that will go in effect only with your permission. We will continue coverage and bill you for the extra hours.




Do you shoot engagement portraits?

Yes, we do. Engagement portraits are a great way for the couple to feel more at ease with being photographed on their wedding day, and its a great way for us to get to know you.

album
What is the album process?

The entire process can be done online and is pretty simple. We will assist you the entire way from photo selection to album details.




What do the wedding albums look like?

Your album is a timeless thing of beauty — seriously, the albums are gorgeous. All albums include top photographic archival paper, uv coating, and flush mount. You can choose from a traditional wedding album with top grain leather or a more modern album with linen cover. You can check out album details and photos on our blog.

business
We would like to book you for our wedding. How do we do that?

It is very easy, we’ll send you a contract, you sign it and send it back to us with a retainer of $1000 and you have officially booked us.




We would like to book you for our wedding. When should we do that?

As soon as possible. Dates can fill up very quickly and we can’t ‘reserve’ or ‘hold’ dates without a signed contract and retainer. We are often commissioned over a year in advance and sometimes as close as one month prior.




What is the payment schedule?

The fee to retain our services is $1,000 to reserve your date. The remainder is due 30 days before the date of your wedding.
Full payment is required before the event.




Can you 'hold' a date?

Unfortunately we can not hold dates without a retainer and signed contract. We accept bookings on a first come first serve basis. The fee to retain our services is $1,000 to reserve your date. The remainder is due 30 days before the date of your wedding.




Are you fully insured?

Yes. We have full liability insurance coverage, often required for large venues and hotels. We can supply certificates upon request. If your venue does requite a certificate of insurance please let us know at least six weeks before the wedding date.




What happens if you get sick before our wedding day?

This has yet to happen but one of our associates would be able to cover. Our associates have shot weddings on their own as well as assisted and trained with us. All of our associates are skilled professional photographers and filmmakers. We would still do the couple’s retouching, printing, and editing.




If we cancel the wedding can we have the retainer back?

No. The retainer/booking fee is non-refundable. The retainer guarantees that we hold the date exclusively for you. Once the contract is signed we turn down all other bookings for that date.




Will you stay if we run overtime?

Absolutely. We do have an overtime rate that will go into effect only with your permission. We will continue coverage and bill you for the extra hours.




Can we pay with a credit card?

To make it easier for the couple, they can use a credit card through Paypal. However, Paypal does charge us a percentage per transaction, which we will have to add to the expenses. We normally take a personal check (four weeks prior to the event) or cash payments.
