LHP stands for Luis Herrera Photography, it is the shortest way to refer to our company.
Of course, it can be really important to let me know if there are particular shots you would like to see in your selection.
Of course! Bring them on. I'm sure you want an album full of everyone you care about. You can tell me more about when we meet.
There is no problem, I always say that what matters are the photos. I recommend the customized package.
I am a photojournalist and documentary photographer, so my job is to catch things on the fly. This is the key to making your wedding photos are unique and not like the other couples. Moreover, this is how I enjoy. You just have to give you a look at my blog (where I publish some of the work I'm doing) to give note of it. However, through the years we have learned to work different photographic styles in order to satisfy your wishes. Some of this styles are: Portraiture, High Fashion, Natural Light, Illustrative Photography, Traditional, Classic.
Yes, all of our photography is doing using the RAW file format. Files are then processed in Adobe Suit to adjust the image for optimal color balance and density as well as cropping and other adjustments.
Not at all. Anyway, remember that for 7-10 hours usually takes a wedding, the session "poses" takes approximately 20 minutes. But we do this only if you want. Anyway, I recommend doing: the poses that I do are not old, cheesy and humorless, and I think it's worth that little "effort" to get some good photos` of you where I can control the lighting, background, etc .
Of course. But photos of you two together, it is more difficult. I recommend doing those 20 minutes of kisses and hugs after the ceremony and before the appetizer. But I want at that time you have to give everything!
Between 1,000 and 8,000. I go with two cameras on their backs, and in 7 or 15 hours lot of things happen. Also, if I see "something", I have to photograph it. Although later I spent hours selecting. It's our work and I Love it!
I do lots of photos of the guests at the wedding. As I said, if I see something, I take a photo. But it is also true that the protagonists of the film are you two. And above all I am aware of people who are related to you. Most guests come in wedding photos are the ones that have been with you at the wedding: trustworthy!
We work with a variety of professional equipment. The canon 5D Mark III is our default camera body for any event, however, we have different cameras more professionals for a better quality that you can upgrade in your package for an extra price. You can view here our full equipment.
It will depend on the package you choose
In some weddings yes, sometimes not. There are weddings in the dance gradually encouraged, and for the first hour does not come much has happened. Instead, there are weddings in the dance starts racing. Anyway, if you want me to hunt times like these, better stay at least two or three hours!
I think I make many photos, many, and I see many things, maybe too! but unfortunately I can not be in two places at once. A second photographer, whether it is good and work as a team, always good. Now: is the second photographer required? No, never, but I consider it highly recommended from 150 wedding guests.
I have over a year as professional wedding photographer, during which I photographed over 10 weddings. My team and me are constantly updating on everything related to wedding. Also I work in other projects unrelated with weddings, for this reason I have a special team who is working hard everyday to be the best in this area. I want to invite you to try our services, I'm pretty sure you will love it.
Of course, I think is great that people can take pictures, the only thing is that I don't want they use flash.

This is basically for three reasons:
1- If during the wedding day "see" a picture (albeit in principle irrelevant, as a guest staring off or anything that catches my attention), I do it. You may not be interested in that picture too, but if the guest happens to be your best friend ... bingo! so I have to do it.
2- When there is a lot of action scenes, I do burst shooting (6 photos per second), and then I select which of the elements fit them, come out better or more beautiful. So there are many pictures"repeated". A typical case is the "exit" after the ceremony.
3- I work the hard scene, and I'm insisting until I'm satisfied with the photo or until the scene fades.
