If I'm really busy it can take up to 4 weeks. With 6 weeks for albums. I aim to deliver them to you within two weeks as I know people are keen to relive the day!
This hasn't happened to me yet! (Touch wood!) But just in case, I am a member of a group that offers short notice replacements, so no need to worry!
Of course! You will receive all useable images in a USB pack. All I ask is that you don't alter them and then publish them anywhere saying that is my image. You can print or share them as much as you like otherwise. If you post them on social media, just tag me in them as taking them. Hopefully I'll get some more business from it!
Not a problem, this happens sometimes. I will honour the cost and move the date as long as I have 14 days notice and the other date is available. If not, then you will receive a refund minus the booking fee and I'll recommend a trusted colleague if they are available.
This really depends on how long I am with you. A full days shooting will generate anywhere between 900 - 1200 delivered images. The least would 300 for a 4 hour plan.
Bring a Brolly! The weather really isn't an issue. It can make for some great images! I always have brollies in my car, my cameras are shower proof as well! Plus my bride brolly has sparkly bits on it! If you're happy to get wet and get some great shots, then I'm game!!
I get this a lot. Honestly, you'll be great! I will direct you as much as you need. I like to capture more naturally when you don't realise I'm there. That way you don't have to worry. I promise, you will look great. All you need to do is enjoy your day and I'll do the rest. I always offer a pre-wedding shoot for all packages, at no extra cost. This way, I can get to understand you both a bit better and we can discuss any posed shots that you want to take. This can be anywhere you like, out doors, at the venue or in your own home.
I use Nikon Full Frame Cameras, with a combination of Nikon and Sigma, prime and zoom lenses. I have flash guns and standalone lighting if it is dark or low light.
All images are colour corrected and adjusted for contrast and exposure. I will remove small blemishes and unsightly or bright fixtures, such as Fire Exit signs or spots! I can offer full Photoshopping services to straighten teeth, replace skies etc for an additional fee.
Sometimes, yes! There is obviously an additional cost to this, along with more images. Almost all the images on my website were taken by me as a single shooter. I have a lovely lad help me who is a photography student. He sorts the logistics for me so I can concentrate or getting the right shots. He occasionally picks up a camera as well, so will get some extra angles.
I wouldn't recommend it as RAW files are negative digital images that require processing to be able to be displayed or printed. All images that I deliver are in Maximum Resolution JPEG format which can be printed up to A1 in size. If you really want RAW images, then we can discuss the reasons and they can be made available under a separate contract and additional fee.
If you agree, then of course I'd use them on my website, social media or for advertising. After all I want to sell myself in the best possible way! I fully understand if this isn't for you and we can add it into the contract and I will keep them off-line. I've had couples in the past ask not be published online due to not wanting their students to know too much about their private lives.
Definitely! I have public liability and if my equipment gets damaged or stolen, I have insurance for that too!
Oh yes! I have two cameras, loads of memory cards and lots of spare batteries!
Yes! I'll work with you to go where ever you wish. Just remember that you have guests waiting to speak to you and celebrate!
Well, a booking fee is required on receipt of the contract, it's 20% of the total cost. The rest is due 14 days before the wedding. You can pay by Bank Transfer, Paypal or in folding money!
Oh yes! I'd hate to lose any memories of the day! My cameras have two memory card slots, so back up automatically. I then keep two copies of all images until they are delivered to you.
Yes please! Cameras are heavy after a while and I'll need to be fed and watered during the day! If needed, this is written into the contract. Plus, people make some funny faces when the are eating which don't look great in a wedding album!!
