Frequently Asked Questions
It is truly important that I work with the right couples who value photography and my creative skills and because of this I do not take every wedding that I am approached about. You deserve the absolute best! That is why it is so important that you make sure Iryna Shostak Photography is the right choice for you.
I capture magic of your wedding day and commit to preserve memories that can be seen, touched and felt, every day as you relive them on your walls, in your hands, and in your heart.
I offer only the best wedding albums and wall art in the industry, at a variety of price points. I help you to choose elegant design for your family heirlooms and my selection ease you into gorgeous, decorative art that will remain a joy for years to come.
You want to look your best and I want to capture it. Surely you wouldn't plan such an important day with so much attention to details without allowing quality photography time.
I recommend at least two hours for couple's and bridal party portraits. Family portraits can be done during the getting ready time and it takes 1,5-2 hours. You can read more about my tips for creating the wedding timeline here.
You can see my retouching process and what it includes here.
When you wake up after your wedding you’ll be able to view this photo as you start your new life together.
We get an album design session after two weeks after the wedding where I show your wedding book and wall art.
Your full gallery of all your wedding photos will be available after the wedding album is approved.

Even though I am perfectly capable of photographing the wedding by myself and shoot many weddings solo, I prefer to work with a second photographer.
A second photographer is the same level photographer as I am and they have their own business. I always work with the same team of wedding photographers who knows my requirements and match my style of photography. I am very picky about hiring people so I don't hire newbies.
If you are getting ready at two different locations, I can't be at two places at the same time. Of course, if the groom wants to get ready two hours earlier than he planned, I would love to photograph it from the beginning till the end by myself.
During multicultural weddings, there are religious ceremonies happening at the same time and I do need a second photographer to help me to photograph it.
A second shooter also gives more variety in photography while working from different angles.
A second photographer helps with covering the cocktail hour, taking pictures of the guests while the main photographer sets up the light for the reception and takes decor photos.
I believe that you are a person of quality! You buy quality, love quality, wear quality, and know that quality costs more than other products.
You saw my portfolio and compared it with other photographers, right? I guarantee you that my prices are even lower than the value I provide.
I’m happy to work with a budget and I offer three collections to choose from and a la carte pricing if you don't have a budget for all those items I included in the collections.
To be fair to all of my clients I do not offer discounts or work gratis for wedding photography.
