Who will photograpah our wedding?
Generally I will work on my own to capture all you wedding photographs, however if you would like to chose the second photographer option then I can arrange another wedding photographer to shoot more images from your wedding day. The extra cost will be added to your wedding package.
How long will it take to get our wedding photographs?
I work hard to ensure that your images are of the highest quality and are ready as soon as possible. I usually have a few 'Teaser' shots on line the next day both on my blog and on Facebook. I use both platform so that you can share your wedding photography with as many friends and family as possible. Even the ones with out Facebook. I also suggest that clients 'friend me' on Facebook so I can tag you in posts etc. Click her to like my wedding photography page on Facebook
I aim to have your images finished and uploaded on my site within 6 weeks, although it is often before that. I will then send to you a USB drive with all of your edited photographs from your wedding day.
How can we use the photographs from our wedding day?
The High resolution digital files, that you will receive both in colour and black and white, you can use the files to print high quality prints & canvases, send photos to your friends, add them to facebook or use any other way you can think of, although mouse mats and mugs are quite cheesy! There are no usage rites applied to your images in your contract so you are able to use your wedding photographs in any way you choose. I keep the copyright and ask your permission to use the images for my marketing material. The images you see here is generally how I might use some of your images.
Can our family buy albums and prints?
I am happy for you to share your photos with your friends and family straight from the USB. I don't believe in charging extra for additional photographs, I offer great value for your the photographs of your wedding and like to think I am being fair with the pricing for the quality and quantity. If your family would like to order albums I am happy to quote them for this. Package two, our most popular package, which includes small parent albums in the package is ideal if you would like to have an album for your self and for two parent albums.
How many photographs from our wedding day do we get?
At a wedding I usually take over 2000 photographs. I then edit the photos, picking out all the best images, removing photos where you may be blinking or mid sentence! I don’t limit the number of wedding photographs that I give to you, but the contract states that I will deliver over 500 photographs. I typically deliver over 650 in colour then you also receive a black and white copy too! So as you are probably becoming aware I offer great value for money. If you took the 100 images from your pre wedding shoot and the 1500 or so from your wedding and the 50 from your anniversary shoot; that would equate to 50p an image. Told you I was great value!
Can we get a pre wedding shoot?
Of course! All my packages come with a pre wedding shoot included in the price. I really enjoy these as they are great for getting to know us better and for you to get used to the camera. I can take pre wedding photographs at any location of your choice. If the location is more than 30 miles from my address, an additional charge of .45p per mile will be added to your final invoice. A nice park, a city centre, even your wedding venue. You can find out more about pre wedding photo sessions here. Some amazing space that I have done pre wedding shoots at are, Stowe, Wrest Park, Waddesdon Manor, Stoke Woods, Farringdon Folly. Obviously we can also wander around Oxford or a village in the Cotswolds too.
Got to love the party shots!
How do we book you ?
First of all, please get in touch, sending me an email is the easiest way to start the process. You can do that here. It’s great for me to meet before you book us, so we can get to know you a little better. If you are a little further away, we can talk over skype or factime. If you can’t meet us though, it’s no problem, we will meet you one day!. To secure a date we require a £150 booking fee and the balance is payable one month before the wedding date. You can make payments at any time if that is more suitable to your budget.
What kit do you have?
As a pro photographer, I have two professional level Canon 5d mark 4 cameras and a back up body too, I use only professional level Sandisk memory cards and make two copies of each photograph each time I press the shutter. All my lenses are Canon L series. I have a full back up section in the office which makes a further three copies of your photographs when I upload them. I always do this as soon as I get back from your wedding, I like to have as much back up as possible. Back in the office I use Adobe and Nik software to create the images you can see on the site. I keep the original files for 1 year on my servers, just incase you have a mishap with yours.
Are you insured?
Yep I have professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance should your venue require it. Risk assessments are also available for venues and locations that require them, there is a fee of £150 per risk assessment.
