First, you will be asked to fill in a short but sweet questionnaire to help us understand your vision of your event.
Next, you will be greeted in our studio to go over your wedding day details over our signature mango cocktails (wink, wink).
During your visit, you will meet your event coordinator and photography team. At MANGO you have a dedicated event coordinator (who has a background in wedding planning!) who will be there with you every step of the way, guiding you and making sure your experience with us is as flawless as your wedding photographs!
Once the wedding day is over, we will invite you to your photo reveal which is essentially another great excuse for your family to get together and relive the magic. The design team takes over here, and helps you create beautiful books and printed artwork.
Some of our clients simply don’t have time for coming into the studio or live abroad, and we completely understand. You can also do all of the above quickly and easily over the phone or Skype.
How many images will I get at the end and how long does it take to get them?
It depends on the size of your wedding, but on average you will receive 700-1000 colour and black and white, retouched images in high resolution. It will take approximately 4-6 weeks.
What if something happens to my photographer?
There are no what if’s, coulda’s or shoulda’s! However, in the unlikely event of emergency, one of our other talented, studio team photographers will fill in.
How do you pick a photographer / Who will be shooting our wedding?
This is the easy part.
We have found that working with your Mango event coordinator is the BEST way to choose the RIGHT photographer for your event. This way you’re making an informed and non-biased decision vs. meeting one single photographer.
We’re a small team, so when you meet us you will review all available team members portfolios for your date.
You can choose a photographer or allow your event coordinator to pair up the right photographer with you.
Each photographer has their own unique personality, but we all share the same vision and approach to event photography. So often the pairing is based on a personality fit.
When you hire MANGO, you’re guaranteed the best team in the business. This approach has worked for us for the last 11 years. We’re ranked as the top photography studio because of our tireless pursuit of the highest quality photography. We achieve this through the magic of teamwork!
Are you able to send some pricing packages? Will they include an engagement session? Add ons?
We shoot a lot of different and unique weddings – not one is the same. Our packages are highly customizable based on your needs and so we encourage you to come into the studio, meet the team, and walk us through what you have in mind for the day. Alternatively, we love a good phone call or skype session to get the ball rolling. Get a starter quote for your wedding here.
What if it rains?
Embrace the rain. It can make for stunning photos.
We suggest purchasing pretty umbrellas like these.
Discuss alternate locations and rain locations with your photographer. If you have any preferred locations let us know and we’ll work them into the plan. We will also help make suggestions for great back-up options.
We have a destination wedding – how do you handle travel?
There is a fixed rate package price (this rate includes the additional time incurred with the travel portion.) Travel expenses, flights, accommodations, meals, and transportation are in addition.
We have made destination wedding photography easy to book at MANGO. Most destinations have fixed rate packages that include flexibility with hours specifically for destination weddings.
Keep in mind when booking us for a destination wedding, we’re traveling for work. We take this very seriously, while we do enjoy some of the downtime, there are many moving parts in orchestrating an event like location scouting and file management.
We LOVE to travel. We’ve been to almost every continent, all over the globe. We’ll give you the in’s and out’s of making the most of your wedding away. Connect with our team here for more info and a customized quote.
Do you edit all the images?
We sure do. You will receive a full set of colour and black and white, high resolution images.
What do we actually get?
You will receive a high quality selection of your wedding images as well as an online gallery to share with family and friends. There’s also a hand-crafted Mango USB with colour, black and white high resolution images. You own the rights to these photos and can reproduce them as you wish. We also include a selection of web-sized photographs because we know some will end up on your social media accounts.
Do you do cultural weddings, Indian, Jewish, Chinese, etc. ?
A decade of experience in the wedding industry has taught us a lot of things and we’re ready for more. We are very well versed in all types of religious and cultural ceremonies and operate in a very respectful and courteous manor.
My fiance doesn’t like being in front of a camera.
It happens a lot and that’s why there are engagement shoots! They are a great opportunity to get to know your wedding photographer and get used to being photographed. After the session, we will show you exactly how you photograph together professionally and you can give us feedback about what you like / don’t like. We’ll then personalize the approach to get the best possible photos on the wedding day.
Do you have a photobooth?
Yes, we do! They make for a fun addition to your wedding day! See your photo booth options here and see why they’re such a blast to have around.
Do you shoot anything else other than weddings?
Yes, we do! Our photographers are well-experienced and shoot anything from baby showers to corporate events. Learn more about them here and here.
Do you create photo albums?
Did I mention my grandfather had his own printing shop? At Mango, we take HUGE pride in printed photos as they are a tangible token of your memories. See why and how we print here.
Have you shot at our wedding venue before?
We’ve been there and done it all. You can simply search your venue name in our search box on our blog and see for yourself. We also have a trusted network of wedding vendors we love working with, which you can check out here.
Wait! I have more questions. Can I call you?
Absolutely. Our phone number is 416-366-4723 and you can also send us an email here.
