Let's get down to the nitty gritty!
A.K.A THE FAQS
Do you charge for travel?
I love to travel. Travel to the mainland UK is included in my prices. You won't get charged per mile with me! If the wedding is over 2.5 hours away I will ask for accommodation to be paid for.
I also work abroad too! Email me for destination wedding costs.
How many photographs do we get?
I don’t limit the number of images I supply. I will take photographs of everything throughout the day, and you’ll receive all of the final edited photographs. From a full day of photography you receive a minimum of 500 photographs.
Do you do group photos?
Yas! I think group photos with family and special ones are super important. I wouldn’t recommend any more than 6-8 groups, which shouldn’t take more than 20-30 minutes.
Who owns the copyright of the images?
The copyright of the images always remains with the photographer, but I do give a personal license to my clients, so they can produce, share and print all their wedding images. The only thing you cannot do with the images is use them for commercial re-sale. I.e. you can't just sell them to O.K. magazine and not give me a cut ;)
We hate posing for photos – think Chandler Bing… help?
Same! Would you believe I’m a photographer, and hate having my photo taken? I can completely relate to the way you’re feeling. Most people aren’t use to having a camera shoved in their face, so I like to keep the photos natural and relaxed. There’s no stiff awkward posing, or cheesy instructions! I like to have a bit of fun with you both, and do things that reflect you guys as a couple.
Can you hold our wedding date?
I’m afraid I can’t hold any wedding dates. I often get enquiries for the same date, so it’s whoever agrees the T&C’s and pays the deposit first. I’ll always let you know if I have another enquiry for the same date. Or the person who buys me the most chocolate ;)
What cameras and kit do you use? Do you have backups and are you insured?
I always shoot with 2 professional Canon DSLR cameras with a collection of Canon L series lenses. I also have an additional back-up camera just in-case and I have a ton of high quality memory cards.
And you bet I'm fully insured! I have public indemnity and public liability insurance, and all of my snazzy camera gear is insured too.
How long after the wedding do we see the images?
I will share a little sneak peek of the day with you about a week after the wedding. In busy periods my lead time is 6-8 weeks. I edit all the images myself. Once your images are ready you will receive your online gallery (with full and free access to download the images). Then you will also receive a USB
and presentation box a couple of weeks after this (it’s a cool little box which is great for keeping wedding keepsakes in).
Sounds great! What’s the booking process/ How does this stuff all work?
After we’ve met or had a Skype chat, you’ve decided I’m the right amount of crazy/weird and you want to book, drop me a line and I can do my happy dance. Once the booking form is completed I will send you through an invoice and contract; A £400 deposit will need to be paid (this comes of the final total) and once the contract is signed and the deposit is paid that’s it, you’re officially booked in the diary!
