Frequently
Asked Questions

WILL MARTIN SEDACCA GO TO MY WEDDING OR WILL HE JUST SEND ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER?

I attend every wedding. I don’t send any other photographer in my place.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE YOU AND WHAT'S INCLUDED?

All my packages are “All Inclusive” for what you are needing, I like having the bride and groom enjoy the process of wedding planning that’s the cutest part and try to help them solve what they need. No buts, no surprises, no delays. What’s included varies depending on the package you choose. everything will be specified in the contract we’ll sign before the first payment.

I have different packages. If none conforms to your needs then we can build one. If you want to receive packages request them here:



HOW FAR IN ADVANCE WE NEED TO HIRE YOUR SERVICES?

The further in advance the better, you ensure my availability to capture your wedding day. Out of respect for my work, I do not send other photographers and do not perform more than 25 weddings per year. You can ask without commitment if I’m free the day of your wedding.



WILL YOU HAVE ALL DAY AVAILABLE FOR OUR WEDDING?

Yes. My packages are per hour, and even if you hire 2, 5 or 10 hours, the whole day will be for you. I only take one wedding per day.

HOW DOES A WEDDING DAY DEVELOPS?

All weddings are different, and I’ll be there at all times to cover what happens in yours. If your wedding is on the beach it won’t be the same as the rest of the weddings on the beach. There will be a lot of situations, emotions and moments that will make it different from the others, and you will see that in the pictures.

I DON'T LIKE TO POSE, WILL I HAVE TO?

No. Not at all. The idea is that you enjoy your wedding, I don’t like rigid poses and forced expressions. The only time it would be “necessary” to pose are for the portraits of the couple, and because of my way of working, we will make it super-relaxed, nothing rigid, you’ll see, we’ll have a good time for the wedding to flow naturally, for you to be relaxed and for the photos to express it perfectly.

AT WHAT TIME SHOULD THE CEREMONY BE HELD TO HAVE PRETTY LIGHT AND MAKE THE MOST OUT OF IT?

In the Riviera Maya it’s best to start at 5 pm in order to have the sunset during the ceremony and later portraits. If you already have the timing confirmed and it doesn’t match, don’t worry, you’ll have amazing photos at any time. It’s the advantage of hiring an experienced professional.

WHAT IS TRASH THE DRESS?

Trash of dress is a couple session that takes place at another time and not at the wedding, either the next day, several days later or even days before the wedding. Why should we do these sessions? To take pictures without rushing because of the wedding schedule and without worrying about getting the dress dirty, in fact, brides often bring a second dress, especially for TTD.

TTD varies depending on what the couple wants, it can be on the beach, in a natural well or any city of interest. Lasts between 1 and 3 hours.

HOW MANY PICTURES DO I GET?

It depends on the length of the wedding. But don’t worry, the way I work is directly related to quality, not quantity. I won’t give you any boring photos to fill a quota; all photos will be great! For reference, I’m getting between 30 and 60 great pictures every hour or more.

WHAT PHOTO QUALITY WILL I GET?

High quality, with no watermark and ready to print in any format.

HOW LONG DO YOU TAKE IN DELIVERING THE WEDDING PHOTOS?

Between 1 and 2 months depending on the wedding. All photos require a color correction process, better to make it right than make it fast. Think that you will keep these photos for the rest of your life.

HOW CAN WE SHARE OUR PHOTOS WITH GUESTS?

The photos are delivered through a software hosted on the Internet, with username and password. The bride and groom can share all the photos with their guests by giving them the username and password.

CAN I ASK YOU FOR PRINTED PHOTOS AND AN ALBUM?

Of course! You can ask me for whatever you need, I am in touch with suppliers from all around the world. I will get anything you order to the door of your house.

MY WEDDING VENUE OFFERS ITS OWN PHOTOGRAPHER, CAN I HIRE MY OWN?

Yes! My packages of 5+ hours include vendor fee. That means you should not worry about that. I will handle that with the hotel.

HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS? WHY SHOULD WE CHOOSE YOU?

You just have to choose me if you like my photos and want to have a photographer 110% worried about your photos as if it was his own wedding. I do my best in every wedding and I am aware that your wedding day will be unique and unrepeatable. Your wedding photos will be saved for generations and it’s a great responsibility that can’t be left to anyone. It’s gonna be an amazing experience and the least you can expect is amazing photos.

CAN I PAY FOR EXTRA HOURS ASIDE OF THE ONES CONTRACTED?

Of course, though I don’t like to have you thinking about that.  Before hiring me, we are going to talk to find the right package for your wedding so you won’t have to add any extra time.

DO YOU DO TRADITIONAL PORTRAITS?

Of course! I define my style as wedding photojournalism, and I believe that family photos are a super important part of the story. And even more in destination weddings as your guests make a great effort to be there with you. It’s important and nice for you to have them keep that memory. We will arrange a schedule in timing for taking that photos, with all the guests who wish to take part so the rest of the time is devoted solely to enjoy the wedding.

IN WHAT CITIES DO YOU DO WEDDINGS?

In all of them! I live in Playa del Carmen, Mexico but I do weddings all over the world. Don’t hesitate to contact me, I have packages with “everything included” and all you will have to worry about is enjoying your big day!

CAN YOU RECOMMEND US SOME VENDORS AND HELP US WITH TIPS FOR THE WEDDING?
Yes! I can recommend some vendors if needed. I even know how difficult it is to organize a destination wedding in the distance, I’ll have a section in my blog with useful tips to help you enjoy this experience. It’ will be online on June 17.
