A: First things first - lets check if I'm available on your date! If I’m free, I find it great to hold a bit of a Skype chat or good old phone call to get to know you guys, answer any questions and find out if we’re the right fit for each other.
A: Getting booked in is really easy, once we’ve had a chat/skype and you want me to be a part of it all, I’ll send you a link over to complete the online booking form. Theres no contract to sign, at the bottom of the booking form are my terms and conditions of sale (which you will receive a copy of on booking) and by submitting the form, you’re accepting the t’s&c’s which are there to protect both you guys and me.
A: Once you’re all booked in you’ve secured me! Sadly, dates can not be held without a completed booking form and deposit. I’m more than happy to pencil your name on your wedding date but this does not secure it for you, sorry.
A: The booking fee is £95. This secures me for your date and is payable at when completing the online booking form. It can be paid by Debit or Credit Card or by Paypal. The balance for the photography is due around a month before and is payable by bank transfer.
A: Depending on the venue and any client requests I like to split up my shots with the Bride and Groom, in the afternoon we’ll get a few shots but usually in mid summer the light is awful, so I might suggest to do some shots in the evening. Magic things happen to light later on in the day and its great to use it. If you want some group photos thats cool too, I’m really efficient with these, all guests and then the VIP’s is good but do recommend no more than 10 line ups, that way you can be free to enjoy the day with your family and friends, which in my book is the way it should be!
A: It’s entirely up to you but it is great to have a second camera there on the day! They can provide an additional edge to the photography from different viewpoints, spend time with the groomsmen in the morning and capture more of the guests enjoyment and candid shots. They can also help in speeding up the proceedings of the group shots and provide assistance in the portraits.
A: I currently shoot with Nikon Professional camera equipment. I have several modern professional DSLR bodies (5 at the moment) and an array of lenses, gizmos, professional memory cards.
A: Depending on your chosen coverage, I'll be taking hundreds and hundreds capturing the essence and story of your day, it depends on a few factors but most notably the number of guests, a wedding with 20 people will most likely have less than a wedding 200!
A: No, you do not need to worry about copyright. Your images are fully licensed for personal use which means you can print or share them socially. I’ll even help you find some great labs if you want prints.
A: Post production is a massive part of the photography process and as a guide for every hour spent at a wedding there are three to four more spent making them look as good as they do. This is all part of the digital manner in which photos are edited. I always aim to ensure your photos are classy and timeless. I never use tacky or dated techniques such as selective colouring, sepia or cyanotype. If you like that, I’m sorry but I’m probably not the right photographer for you, I’m passionate about my style and in 50 years your images should look just as great as the day you got them.
A: No. Part of the creative process you invest in is the preparation your images, its a huge part of it all.
A: No. The price for each level of coverage is all inclusive and the price you book at is the price you will pay on your wedding. The only time additional cost may arise is if any additional travel will be required for the wedding or midweek pre wedding shoot or if you would like to upgrade or add extra products like albums and frames.
A: You’ll have all your digital images around 4+6 weeks after your wedding but I'll always aim to have the turnaround as short as possible for you.
A: Don’t worry, I have never had this problem. However, to plan for the worst, I am a member of a bank of professional experienced photographers who will take over.
A: I am fully insured and should a venue ever require it, copies of my insurance certificates are available on request. You should really get wedding insurance too!
