When couples are planning to get married I often get asked by them so many common questions. This is very normal because having a professional photographer or videographer is probably only ever happen maybe once in your lifetime. So here a just a few questions I get asked on a regular basis.
(Q) How long have you been doing weddings?
(A) I have been photographing/videoing weddings professionally for 14 years in many locations in the UK and abroad.
(Q) What equipment do you use?
(A) I have 3 main cameras 2 x Sonys and 1 x Panasonic Lumix. and a serious of top-grade lenses. In addition a variety of wireless triggers a DJI gimbal for video work and various other equipment.
(Q) We want a wedding album how do we choose the photos and how many.
(A) I will show you online a selection of beautiful bespoke albums for you to choose. After the wedding, I pre-design all the album pages for you telling the story of the day. This is done to take the stress away from you having to choose from so many lovely photos. Then you can simply take your time to change any around including adding or removing ones you do or don't want.
(Q) How will you photograph/video our wedding?
(A) Each wedding has its own unique style and way of shooting. There are many things to consider like location, lighting, and the weather, etc. However, I have my own format for coverage which I discuss with every couple to ensure it is what they want. This will allow me to give my best on the day.
(Q) How many photos will we have and when will we get to see them or our video?
(A) Your photographs or videos are normally ready for viewing online 6 to 8 weeks after the wedding day. This could be longer or shorter depending on my workload especially during the busy summer months. You will get between 200 and 600 images but this depends on which package you chose and the coverage on the day taking into account, weather, time of years and location etc..including how much time we get to spend with you and your guests. Once your images are ready You will be emailed a secure online galley link. From there you will be able to view them privately online or share with family and friends if you wish. . With all packages, you will now get (as of Sept 2021) a link to be able to download the digital files or if chosen your own DVD or USB. This is usually a few weeks after you have initially seen them in gallery. However If you have an album package and you chose to have images on DVD or USB you will receive your photos or videos with the album when it arrives.
Once you have approved your album designs it will then be ordered and sent off for production and then shipped to myself when it is ready. Please note wedding albums usually take 2/3 weeks to build and deliver to me for inspection from the time of your final approval.
(Q) How will I receive my album
(A) Once your album has been ordered it then goes through a process and built to a high standard. It is then shipped to me for my own final inspection. Once this is done you will be notified and we can then arrange a convenient time for you to come and collect it.
(Q) Can I share my photos/video on Facebook and social media?
(A) Of course yes. Although I do recommend adding a watermark and resizing the images first. Facebook does heavily compress uploaded images which can make the quality look poor. I do offer to do this for my clients free of charge so the images look the best they can.
(Q) What happens if it rains on our wedding day?
(A) Unfortunately, the weather is something we can not control. However, I do take steps just in case which I discuss with clients in advance so we are all prepared.
(Q) How do we book you and what are the payment terms?
(A) Once you are happy with your package option I will immediately book your date on my professional booking system. You will then receive a direct email link to your booking form which needs completing. This will also include your package information, quotation, and relevant terms and conditions. You simply fill in all the details as required and proceed to make the 10% deposit payment. Payment is done by using your debit or credit card. Or you can do it by bank transfer.
Please note: The deposit for combined Photography and Videography is a different amount (please ask for details)
