Where are you based? What kind of photographer are you?
I am a wedding photographer based in both Toronto, Ontario and Kingston, ON. I cover and document weddings from Toronto to Prince Edward County (PEC) to Kingston, ON to Ottawa without travel fees. I will often be galavanting elsewhere in the world too! Special rates apply to certain destinations- just ask! I have a few bucket list locations in mind!
How do you photograph weddings? Do you pose and do family photos during the day as well?
I am a story-teller with a camera! I shoot in a documentary style, trying to be unobtrusive as possible! 100% we set aside time to do posed family photos but other than that, I love shooting as the day unfolds. No awkward, cheesy posing just a lotta cuddly loving! I would love to tell you more about how I work during the wedding day. You can read more here: My Approach or better yet: just get in touch! :)
What is the experience like to work with you?
A good handful of my wedding couples have taken their time to write really sweet reviews of their experience with me. They range from talking about the first time we met to receiving their final photos. All of my reviews on are google —> you can read them here - Kind Words.
How much are your services?
Every wedding has different needs but I would say on average, couples invest $3500+ on a typical wedding day. Additional hours and second shooters can be added on. Custom rates available for shorter days, elopements, intimate weddings (<30 guests) and destination weddings.
What should I wear to the shoot?
First and foremost, wear something you feel yourself and comfortable in! However, I can provide some styling tips and ideas. For some outfit inspiration (&other wedding inspiration), check out my pinterest board here!
How long will it take to receive my wedding photos?
It will take around 5-10 weeks for your photos to be completed and delivered right to your inbox! For lifestyle/portrait shoots, turn around time will be less than 4 weeks.
Do we need to feed you?
If your guests are eating during your dinner reception, yes I love eating so I can have enough energy to keep shooting! We love being able to sit with your guests so that we can shoot and be right where the action is (as opposed to the next room!).
Do you do skin retouching?
The simple answer would be no. Anything super obvious like a big zit can be fixed though! Beyond that will be a charge per photo.
Can I show my family and friends my photos?
Absolutely! You will be provided a link to an online private gallery that you are free to share with others. I’d be thrilled to see you sharing your photos on social media- Facebook, Instagram, etc. It would be so greatly appreciated if the photo was properly credited and linked/tagged back to Fiona Chiu Photography !
Do you offer prints and albums?
Yes, of course! While you're free to print and make albums on your own, I highly suggest going through my professional lab for high, consistent quality and colours. It's an investment but worth it to have an heirloom that would last! If you’re on the fence about printing, we should chat!! Digitals won’t last forever but prints and albums when cared for can last for generations to come!
Do you travel?
Yes! I do! I do lots of travelling in my off season but also travel tons as a wedding photographer. I photograph weddings in Toronto, Ottawa and the PEC but often travel to SW Ontario and other parts of the country and world! Don’t hesitate to ask if I’m willing to travel to where you are :)
Shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org - I'd be more than happy to help you out! :)
