Your Questions Answered
When it comes to Wedding Photography there are a number of questions I get asked quite a lot!
It is my aim to try and make your Wedding Photography Journey easy and relaxed from start to finish so here are some answers that might help you to tick a few things off your list!
How long will photography take and how long will you be at the Wedding for?
From your Ceremony until speeches I allow from 4-6 hours depending on the details of your day. If you look at building your photography package you will see the options for me being there for Bridal Prep and staying for the first dance. I can be at your Wedding for 10-12 hours depending on your requirements.
What if it rains?
No problem! I will carry on shooting to the best of my ability! Plus raindrops and an umbrella can make for very beautiful images! As long as you are happy and relaxed I will make sure that we can carry on or use another part of your venue to take the images we need to!
Do we meet you before our Wedding Day?
Yes lets meet! I always think that its such a massive part of my process for clients to feel relaxed and at ease around me. If you want to meet up to discuss your Wedding Plans thats great and I always suggest we meet closer to your Wedding date to finalise details. A Wedding Pre-Shoot is always a great way for us to meet and for you to get used to the way I work!
If your are there for Bridal Prep what time will you arrive?
I can be with you for Bridal Prep from anytime in the morning. It will be completely up to you! Some Brides don't like me to be there before they get their make-up done, others like pre getting ready shots of everyone without hair and make-up done and still in their PJs!
I will normally leave you once you have got your dress on in order to get to the Church to take a few snaps of the Groom, Best Man and Ushers before your arrival.
How long do you stay for on the evening of the Wedding?
I will stay until the speeches. If you look at pricing you can see the options there for me to stay until your first dance approx 8.30pm or after for up to two hours until approx 10.30pm.
What if we don't want loads of group shots?
Thats great! It gives me the chance to be able to get images of your family and friends enjoying themselves, and have really natural candid images. Family is important so it is always good to have a few shots with those people closest to you, but I make this a relaxed and fun time during the day.
We can also discuss these types of requirements in the lead up to your Wedding Date if we get together to go over the final details.
What if I don't like having my photo taken?
A question I get asked all of the time! Don't worry! My aim is to make everyone feel at ease and relaxed on their Wedding Day. We go through your requirements so we can look at different styles and options to suit how you feel. My approach is fun, natural and relaxed so I hope that when it comes to it you wont worry and you will enjoy the moment!
A pre-shoot can be a great idea if you not too fond of the camera, its a great way of having a practise and also getting used to the way I work, so you know more of what to expect on the Wedding Day
Are you insured?
Yes I have Public Liability Insurance
What if you are ill and cant be at the wedding to take pictures?
Firstly I would have to be extremely ill to not make the Wedding Day. I would do my very best to get a replacement Photographer to cover your day.
If your camera or equipment breaks do you have a back up?
Yes. I have two cameras, back up batteries, flashes, lenses and camera cards. I do all that I can to keep my cameras in working order.
How long will it take to see the pictures?
Images are normally edited in 4-6 weeks depending on how busy I am. You will be able to start previewing your images a few days after your wedding via a private online gallery through my website.
Do you offer albums?
Yes I offer Albums, you can find further information in Photography Albums @ the home screen
How do we choose the images for our album?
Once your Wedding Images are edited we will liaise regarding your Album. There are a number of options involved so we can go through this and then finalise picking images to use within it.
What if we want to print images?
Once you have received your final images you have permission to print them. I do not hold copy right.
Please note that some photographers wont allow you to have copyright over their work without paying an extra charge, so always check.
