Absolutely! We love creating printed memories.
Can we expect a lot of flash use during our wedding?
At Tonia & Theodore, we believe in using the natural light to create the most beautiful and timeless images for you. If necessary, we may use our flash in a subtle and unobtrusive manner, typically during the reception. This approach allows us to capture the atmosphere and emotions of the day without detracting from the experience for you and your guests.
Do you provide cinematography services for weddings?
As dedicated fine art photographers, Tonia and Theodore do not offer videography services on their own. However, we have built a close partnership with skilled and talented cinematographers to bring you a comprehensive range of videography options for your big day if requested.
What is the best time to plan my wedding?
The ideal time to plan your wedding depends on the time of year and location. We generally recommend scheduling your wedding 2 or more hours before sunset. For instance, in May, the best time would be around 6 PM or earlier, while in June it would be around 6:30 PM. The optimal time in July would be around 6 PM, in August around 5:30 PM, and in September around 5 PM. We'd be delighted to offer tailored advice based on your wedding venue.
Have you received any award for your work?
While accolades and awards are not the focus of our photography style, Tonia and Theodore have received recognition for their work from various prestigious organizations, including SWPP, Fearless Photographers, Greek photography competitions, and in 2019 we received the Best Wedding Inspiration Award from Ellwed, a singular honor. Our priority is capturing real emotions and every precious detail of your special day.
