FAQ

We are asked all sorts of questions via email from our future bride & grooms, so we thought that this list of FAQ’s might be helpful.

1. WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

Ana Studios is a Toronto registered company. Although based in Toronto, Anna travels regularly throughout the year for destination and elopement photography.

2. DO YOU ONLY SHOOT WEDDINGS IN TORONTO?

No, Anna photographs weddings across the world. It just so happens that many of our couples are getting hitched in Toronto and GTA, local areas. We loved having the opportunity to photograph other couple ethnicities and be part of their journey.

4. WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?

Our Heirloom packages for 2019 begin at $3,500 for 6 hour coverage. Recommended for half-day small weddings. Heirloom Packages include Engagement Sessions, edited images, and timeline assistance in each package ranging in different goodies. For couples how are on a budget are still interested in working together, I take a limited amount of wedding locally to still deliver a wonderful bridal experience with timeless keepsake memories. These Custom Packages start at $1999 for 4 Hours+ for digital work.

3. CAN WE HAVE ALL THE PHOTOS IN HIGH RESOLUTION?

Yes! We include full resolution copies of all the best photos from your wedding day or photo shoot in each and every one of our price packages. These photos, loaded onto one of our bespoke USB keys, are carefully colour corrected and individually tweaked to bring out their full potential.

5. ARE THERE EXTRA COSTS FOR YOUR TRAVEL EXPENSES TO OUR DESTINATION WEDDING?

In the Canada we may sometimes need to cover expenses for travel to weddings that are some distance from Toronto. For events further afield there are additional costs for flights, transfers and accommodation. We always aim to keep these to the bare minimum fixed rate by booking well in advance.

6. DO YOU OFFER PRE-WEDDING / ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS?

Yes! We love the opportunity to meet and take photos of our couples in advance of the big day so we also offer engagement & anniversary photo sessions. These sessions are best shot on location & are a great way for us to get to know each other & for you to generally begin to feel more comfortable in front of the camera. The photos might also be perfect for your wedding day guest book or even the invitations. Prices begin at $450. Ania Studios offer COMPLIMENTARY 1- hour engagement sessions when booking when booking the studios’s Wedding Collection!

7. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY OF DISCUSSING OUR WEDDING PLANS WITH YOU?

Initially the best thing to do is fill in our contact form with as much information as possible. If we are available then we’ll provide you with a quote via email. If then you’d like to discuss things further over the phone or in person that’s great. If we’re not in the same country at the time, then
we’re usually available for a Skype chat instead!

8. CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?

Whenever possible we like to meet you in advance of your wedding. If there’s no pre-wedding shoot, then usually a chat over a coffee in Toronto a few weeks before the day is a great opportunity to go over any last minute details, discuss the schedule of the day and generally get to know each other a little.

9. HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

Once you’re happy to go ahead and confirm a booking with us, we’ll send you over our contract for e-signing which details the terms of booking and conditions of payment. We require a deposit of 50% of the full amount to secure the date. For weddings that require us to book flights or travel in advance, we ask for a deposit of 35%.

10. HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING WILL OUR PHOTOS BE READY?

We’ll send you a link of your gallery and editing completed within 90 days of the date of your wedding. On most occasions the wait is considerably shorter than this! The USB key and prints will follow in the post

11. ARE YOU INSURED?

Yes, we are fully covered for public liability and have comprehensive equipment and travel insurance.
