FAQ’s

How many images do you take and how many will I get?
Each wedding varies but during a full days coverage I may take over 2000 photo’s After these have been edited and deleted I will deliver approximately 350 images.  Many are taken to test exposure and framing, oh and you would not believe how many people blink or have their eyes closed. These are deleted during my import process so you and your guests will always look your best!

When do I get my images? 
I always like to send you a quick sample a few days after the wedding as a sneak peak (these may appear on Facebook) a typical wedding takes 6-8 weeks to edit (especially in the busy season) don’t worry I will keep in touch.

When can everyone else see them?
You, of course, will see your images first! I then provide a unique password to your gallery for you to share with your friends and family. Within the gallery, they will be able to share and arrange prints delivered to their door.

Are all my images edited? 
Yup, simply put the nice people that built cameras still don’t do a good enough job and images are not up to my standards and style till they are edited.  Colours will be improved,  white balance corrected, things sharpened, cropped and edited to my bespoke style. This will also mean some get changed to B&W to suite. People worked so hard to make the clothes, flowers, venue, and food so good and your photos should reflect the real day. 

Can I print my images?
Of course! you will be supplied with hi-res images for printing. I love printed images it brings back so many memories from my childhood waiting for the films to come back from boots. You and your guests can order prints straight from the online gallery to the door.

Can I share the images on Facebook? 
Of course! you will be supplied with low-res quick to upload photos for sharing on social media, they will contain a discrete logo please do invite your friends and family to like my page and tag them all in them.

Can I order an album later? 
Of course! you don’t need to purchase an album when you book me, in fact, many people choose to arrange their albums for their 1st anniversary (paper!) 

Can you help us with the planning?
I have seen my fair share of weddings so I’m happy to advise on timings and potential shots. I will discuss this further with you during our meetings and am happy to give guidance. I do recommend at least an hour for bridal prep and 30mins for portrait shots in the evening. Not everyone has lots of formal group shots and you won’t be surprised that the biggest smiles and laughs come when they ‘think’ no one is looking (i’m known as quite the sniper!)

 

The “What if’s”

What if it rains?
Well i cant control the weather , if i could i would be the busiest wedding photographer around! the key here is to talk about it in advance it will be one fo the points i discuss with you about your venue and come up with that ‘Plan B’ for group and couple photos.

What if your equipment stops working?
I shoot with professional camera equipment, i always have at least 4 cameras and should the worst happen im not usually more than 2 foot away from a spare!

What about insurance?
I have full public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance.

What if your ill?
A wise man once said “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” so its an important question to ask. Over the years i have a trusted number of other photographers i’ve worked with so i will do all i can to secure a replacement.
