Wedding Photography is the best investment you can make on your wedding day.  It is essential to have a photographer who can capture the memories so you can re-live them.  When the day is over, the details may be forgotten, but your photos will live on.

As every couple is unique; we offer couple of ways to develop the perfect photography collection for your wedding.  You have the option of creating your own collection utilizing our hourly, a-la-carte menu; allowing you to truly tailor the perfect photography package or you can select our all inclusive collection.

Wedding Coverage from Morina Photography

aka Nik

When you choose Morina Photography to capture your wedding day you hire Nik Morina exclusively as your main photographer. If you love my work, and it happens that I am already booked, I am still willing to assist by offering an associate photographer, under my umbrella. My associate photographer would capture your wedding day in the same style and mindset, while I ensure you receive the same quality product.

Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are included in our packages; however, clients are responsible for additional costs such as airfare, baggage fees, hotel accommodations, transportation, and vendor meals the day of the event. The length of our stay is typically three days but may vary based on the length of your event. We customarily arrive a day in advance to allow ample time scout locations and adequately prepare for your important day.

If you would like to use your travel miles/rewards and book those flights on your own, I kindly request itineraries be submitted in advance so that I may review and approve the details.

Elopement

We do offer elopement sessions ranging from 2 to 5 hours where we will capture your ceremony and beautiful portraits. If you are thinking of jet-setting to an exotic location or would prefer to celebrate with an intimate group of loved ones, then our elopement package it the way to go. Out cost is not determined by your guest count but by the duration of your festivities; elopement sessions tend to be lower in cost.

As a fulltime photographer, the weekends tend to be taken by traditional weddings which are booked well in advance; however, feel free to ask as we may have a last-minute weekend available.

FAQ's

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?

The style of my photography is contemporary. My photography incorporates editorial characteristics with innovative techniques to capture the entire story of your wedding day.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR PHOTOGRAPHY OR YOU ONLY SHOOT IN PHILADELPHIA?

Of course! I love to travel and capture love in different parts of the world. Just let me know where and we work all the details out. 

DO YOU WORK ALONE, OR YOU BRING SOMEONE WITH YOU, LIKE AN ASSISTANT OR SECOND SHOOTER?

Almost all the weddings I photograph, include a second photographer. If you prefer to have me as your photographer, we can arrange that too.

CAN WE GIVE YOU A LIST OF PHOTOS THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE, FOR EXAMPLE, SOME INSPIRATIONAL PINTEREST PHOTOS THAT WE HAVE SEEN?

While I am not against this idea, I would say that I don't prefer it. I believe that every wedding is, and should be, unique. Trying to recreate scenarios and poses from someone else’s work will not only limit the creativity but also prevent us from showing the real moments between you and your partner that day. Let us focus on creating new inspirational photos of you and your partner for others to share and try to recreate!

 

HOW DO WE GET THE IMAGES, AND ARE THEY ALL EDITED BEFORE WHEN WE FIRST SEE THEM?

The images are delivered to you after they have all been individually edited. These images will include all of the photos that were taken on your wedding day, with the exclusion only those that were unusable. I will also select a few of my favorites to bring to your attention.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR US TO GET THE IMAGES?

Images will be in an online portfolio section of my website, accessible to only you and those whom you choose to share your link with. These images will be available for you approximately six to seven weeks following the day of the wedding. All printed images and/or digital files are available for you within eight to nine weeks after the event. From here, we work together to choose the photos you would like to feature in your album. Depending on your timeline in choosing the final images, the album can be ready as early as eleven weeks from the day of your wedding.

 

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE GET? 

There are many factors that play a key role in determining the number of images you will receive such as the size of the wedding, the hours of coverage, and the type of event. The minimum number of images that will be delivered is 400 images, although, more often than not, that number is much higher.

 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Of course. Many venues now require a certificate of insurance for outside vendors, and I will gladly give your venue a proof of insurance before your big day.

 

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I use high-end, professional photography equipment by Canon.

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR?

I have been doing photography since December 2005.

 

CAN YOU HOLD THE DATE FOR ME?

Due to a restricted number of the wedding I photograph a year, bookings are done on a first come, first serve basis. The best way to ensure your date will be to sign the contract and submit the deposit fee.

 

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?

If you are interested in me as the photographer for your wedding, I ask that you sign the contract that I have provided. At this time, a down payment of 50% is due to officially book the day of your wedding. The remainder of the payment is then submitted a week before the day of the wedding.

 

IN THE EVENT THAT I WOULD HAVE TO CANCEL MY WEDDING, DO I GET MY RETAINER FEE BACK?

Unfortunately no, all retainers are non-refundable. The retainer is in place as a guarantee to you that the date booked is exclusively yours. This means that very often we do turn down other commissions for that date.

 

WHAT IF You GET VERY SICK OR an accident HAPPENS TO PREVENT FROM ATTENDING my wedding?

Thankfully this has never happened! However, in such a case I have in place a network of high-end professional photographers that is great at helping out in such emergency cases
