Do you have a photo studio?

NOPE! I do not have a traditional photo studio. I don’t like portrait photography in studios. I think it’s kind of boring.

What I prefer, is a natural photo session at your favourite spots. You can choose your own location! My photo sessions are spontaneous and not set up, to preserve real moments and real feelings. I believe that your photo sessions are best captured through a series of images to tell your story…

For your baby, I prefer sessions at home. This is easier for you and your baby and it means less stress.

Nevertheless, I call the room where I edit my photos, meet my clients & spend the most time of the day (& night): studio. Weird... ;)

When & how are we getting our photos?

WHEN: 1-3 weeks after our session, depending on how many work I have at this time :)

HOW: You get an email with a link to your private blog including all edited images. When you scroll down you find your download link with all edited images in HIGH RES.
Please be aware that you have to pay the invoice first, to be able to download your images. When payment is done, please let me know by sending sms or mail to me. :) (Nevertheless, I will check my bank account every now & then)

How many photos?

This is not easy to tell, but I guess between 80 & 200 edited photos. Sometimes a bit more… Depends on many factors ;)

Copyrights

I will always own the copyrights (that's completely normal, since I'm the creator of the photos). You do not have the right to change, modify or in any way manipulate my photos. I spend a lot of time in post production to give all edited images a certain look & style. You are NOT allowed to put any IG filter on my images.

PLEASE, if you share them on Facebook or any other social network, tag me as "ARTHUR & MARY" (not Véronique Kolber).
Here are my common tags: FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM. THANKS!

Weddings

Here are the common answers:

  • “ARTHUR & MARY” is just me, Véro and my cameras. No second photographer.

  • I accept a limited number of weddings a year.

  • I studied Photography and Fine Arts.

  • I’m a Pro-Photographer working with Pro Nikon gear.

  • I shoot RAW and I will need to edit every single image! That means that the post-production will take 6-8 weeks to turn into the incomparable Arthur & Mary style.

  • My photographic approach is nontraditional-artistic-photojournalistic ;)

  • It isn’t about capturing every single person, it’s about telling a story. Your story. I will not stop at tables in the evening and make them pose for “table shots”. I prefer instead to capture them laughing, smiling, dancing, drinking, and having a great time.

  • I would like about an hour (or more!) alone with you both (if possible) sometime during the day to create some images of you (Bride & Groom).

The more freedom you give me, the better the results will be...

Let's meet and have a coffee or tea to talk about your ideas. Looking forward to get to know you! :)

The Big Belly Sessions

simone_127.jpg

When’s the best time for our maternity session?

This is a good question! But as every pregnancy is different, every woman feels different and this means, that there are no rules. But I've learned that between 33th and 36th week, the belly is not to small & not to big and that the mother-to-be is still fit enough to walk for 1 hour. :)

What should you wear?

Well, wear what you love! If you feel best in a t-shirt & blue jeans, then do ahead. If you love your beautiful long summer pregnancy dress, go for it! The most important thing is, that this is YOU in the pictures, not any other pregnant woman whatsoever. BUT (there's always a but), please do NOT wear BLACK (both of you). Your belly will completely vanish in black clothes. NO small stripes: creates fringe. Bright colours are OK, but please not to bright & flashy (NO bright RED please). The light will reflect these colours on your skin and it will be frustrating for you (and for me: hello Photoshop) :)

What about make up and hair?

You saw my photos right? :) I love everything in a natural way. But if you want to go to your hair stylist, just go! No need to, but you can... Do as you please.

Where are we shooting?

I will come to you. I normally begin with a brief session inside. Just you and your naked belly. PS: please put your leggings or tights (1 hour before our session) under your belly, to prevent these "un-pretty" marking stripes on your beautiful belly. We can also do a few photos of you and your partner inside your beautiful home (but these are not naked... don't be scared), and then we go outside for a walk. The first 5 minutes, will be very unusual to you, but then, I will somehow disappear and you completely forget that I'm there... By the way, the perfect location, is a non-location. Just have a look at my portfolio and you'll find out.

How long will the session take?

Normally it takes about 60 - 90 minutes max. (PS: if it rains, we can always shift our appointment to another available day.)


The Portrait & Family Sessions

 

The most frequently asked questions are:

Where ? What ? How? :)

Where?

Choose any location, I'll be there. :) (PS: don't forget your beautiful home and your lovely garden.)

What should you wear?

Well, wear what you love! If you feel best in your fav t-shirt & jeans, then go ahead. If you love your beautiful long summer dress, go for it! The most important thing is, that this is YOU in the pictures. BUT (there's always a but), please do not wear BLACK (both of you). Bright colours are OK, but please not to bright & flashy (NO bright RED, PINK, GREEN, etc). The light will reflect these colours on your skin and it will be unflattering for you (and frustrating for me: hello Photoshop) :)                                 

Just wear natural tones instead of flashy colours...

What about make up and hair?

You saw my photos right? :) I love everything in a natural way. But if you want to go to your hair stylist, just go! No need to, but you can... Do as you please.

How?

Just be natural. Don't stage. Play with your children. No worries, I will help you out... The first 5 minutes are unusual for you and this is normal... But after them, you completely forget that I'm there :)

How long?

Normally it takes about 60 - 90 minutes max. (PS: if it rains, we can always shift our appointment to another available day.)

 

PS: I loooove COFFEE :)

Please mail me, if you have additional questions... THANKS.
