Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find some questions you should ask your potential photographer before you make that important decision.
Have a read and if there is anything you need answering that I’ve missed, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE / APPROACH TO DOCUMENTING MY SPECIAL DAY??
We tell a story of your day in pictures.
DO YOU TAKE GROUP SHOTS?
Yes of course we do, but we recommend you have no more than ten group shots and with aid we will achieve these very quickly and professionally.
WILL THE PERSON WE MEET AT THE INITIAL CONSULTATION BE THE PERSON TAKING OUR PICTURES ON OUR DAY?
This is an easy one, yes, I’m your photographer for the whole day.
DO YOU SHOOT DIGITALLY OR ON FILM?
I shoot digitally on Sony professional grade cameras.
DO YOU OFFER PRE-WEDDING SHOOTS/ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS?
Yes I do for an additional fee.
HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED PREVIOUSLY AT OUR VENUE?
If we haven’t taken pictures at your chosen venue, we always try (dependent on distance) to attend the location, prior to your special day.
I’D LIKE TO SEE TESTIMONIALS AND PHOTOGRAPHS FROM YOUR RECENT WEDDINGS?
Testimonials & recent pictures are shown on the website.
I WOULD LIKE BLACK & WHITE AS WELL AS COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?
The great thing about digital photography is that it allows us to provide to you, either colour or black & white in post-processing.
DO YOU OFFER PACKAGES?
We offer 1 simple package, which hopefully covers everyone’s budget, this keeps things simple and transparent
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
We don’t offer albums as it’s much cheaper for you to have the copyrighted pictures and put one together using an online company, thus keeping your wedding day cost down.
HOW LONG WILL MY PHOTOGRAPHERS STAY ON THE DAY?
From getting ready pictures to speeches and evening photography.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRANSPORT?
75 miles (75 miles return) included for free, anything over that requires additional expenditure.
DO YOU REQUIRE REFRESHMENTS
That would be nice, but it’s your call, as we are working in excess on 10-12hrs.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR WEEKDAY WEDDINGS?
We can offer a personalised quote for shorter weddings?
ARE YOU HAPPY TO WORK ALONGSIDE A VIDEOGRAPHER?
It’s your special day, we will work alongside anyone.
HOW WILL THE FINAL SET OF PHOTOGRAPHS BE PRESENTED?
Your pictures will be sent to you via email in form of a link and personal online gallery.
ARE YOU INSURED AGAINST MISHAPS?
It’s a must and we are fully covered by insurance and documents can be provided.
WHEN WILL I NEED TO PAY?
You will need to pay a booking fee on signing the contract “£250″ and the outstanding monies 7 days prior to your wedding day. (Overseas assignments differ)
WHEN WILL WE SEE THE PICTURES?
Approximately 14 days via email link and personal online gallery.
DO WE HAVE TO SIGN A CONTRACT?
We have a detailed contract, covering all aspects of the day and requirements required by you and your photographer.
ALBUM DESIGN & PRODUCTION, HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT?
It can take up to 6 weeks, the album is designed, then you will receive a link to approve or alter things. Once agreed and ordered, the albums are printed and built in Italy.
DO WE STORE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
We store your pictures for 6 months, but allow you to download the pictures as soon as they become available, they will be stored on that link for 6 months after the event
DO YOU PLACE OUR PICTURES ALL OVER THE INTERNET?
We place a selection of photographs on the site to show updated work, but if this is something you wouldn’t like, just let us know and we won’t.
HOW DO WE BOOK
Call or email me at any time and we can arrange a meeting this can be at yours or a local coffee shop to your location. I would then require a completed and signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee of £250 to secure my services for your wedding day. The retainer fee can be paid by bank transfer or cheque. Sadly I cannot confirm your booking until the form and fees have been paid, although I will hold the requested date for a short period until this requirement has been met. The remainder of the balance is due 28 days before the wedding date.
