Do you take traditional group photo's?
I try to shoot the whole day as natural as possible but everyone has different requests and I always ask if you can prepare a list of any group shots before the day so that we don't miss anything that you have in mind. Its also good to allocate someone who knows the guests at the wedding, maybe an usher or a close family member, to help organise these group shots and it means that we can get through them pretty quickly
How long do you stay on the day?
I usually arrive between an hour and half an hour before I officially start to work so that I can get an idea of the surroundings and light situation etc. Depending on the package that you have booked will depend on how long I am there. If things run over towards the end of the day, I will always stay for the important bits so you don't have to worry that things are late, I won't run away when our contracted time is up!
Do you take pictures right throughout the day or do you have a break?
I will always have my camera with me. Generally, when the wedding party sit down to eat is the time to have a quick break and back up the photos taken so far.
How many pictures do we get?
It all depends on the size of the wedding, weather conditions, number of guests etc. but you can expect no less than 350 fully edited images.
Do we need to meet before we book?
I always like to meet before taking a booking but it is not essential. If you are happy to exchange information and contracts via email/telephone then thats absolutely fine.
How do we secure the booking?
An exchange of contract is required to secure your date and a deposit of 100 pounds.
Do we own the copyrights to the photographs?
Yes. You will own full copyrights to all images.
Can I customise a package based on my needs?
I will always try to design a package to suit any specific requests or requirements so please don't hesitate to ask if there is something missing that you wish to include.
Do you include an engagement shoot in your packages?
The packages don't include pre wedding shoots but they can always be incorporated.
Is it okay if other people take photos when you are taking yours?
The only time that I request that guests don't take photos is when we are taking any pre-planned shots. What tends to happen is that if more than one camera is being pointed at a group of people, you have different people looking at different cameras.
