As a professional wedding photographer I get often get asked the same question, so I thought I would try and answer some. Have a read through and if you have any other questions or simply want to have an informal chat about your wedding then please do get in touch.
Do you do group shots?
In Short, Yes. I tend to suggest around 10 group shots for the wedding, anymore and it can quite a drawn out affair for the couple – and the guests. By keeping it around 10 means I get to do what I get hired for, natural, unposed wedding photography documenting you, your family and guests enjoying your special day.
How long will you be at the wedding?
My coverage 3 hours before the ceremony starts, and then I finish just after the first dance. Of course, I can stay later, for £150 I can stay and capture the evening entertainment until 10.30pm.
Can you supply a second photographer for the day?
Yes – I only work with trusted photographers who have worked with me in the past. I am happy to discuss this further with you.
How long does it take to receive our photos after our wedding day?
I normally allow 6-10 weeks – but will be in constant communication with you if anything out of the blue happened.
How many photos do we get?
Although I wouldn’t put a limit on the amount of images you will get, I can assure you that you will receive a minimum of 300, all fully edited and beautiful images.
Do we get a USB*?
I decided to stop supplying USB’s as like other pieces of technology, USB’s will soon be non existent. So instead you get your images in a personalised online gallery – perfect to view, share and download your stunning wedding images.
What if we don’t like getting our photo taken?
Welcome to my world. I hear this often, but my style and personality will be a good fit. Of course there may be some guidance on the day but very little.
I also suggest an engagement shoot, this gives us an opportunity to spend sometime together before the big day, it also gives you both the opportunity for you to be comfortable in front of the camera.
How do I book you?
To begin with get in touch, have a look at this – Contact Me. It would then be great to meet up and have a chat in person or chat on the phone. On receipt of a contract and a £350 deposit, I am officially yours for the day and will turn down all other requests.
What happen’s if your camera breaks, do you have back up equipment?
Yes! I tend to always have a Nikon D750 and a Nikon D850 with me, various lenses, four speed lights, ample memory cards, batteries and more. It would be very very unlikely that something would ever happen to both cameras.
How far will you travel?
Anywhere! Although I am a Lancashire based wedding photographer, I am happy to travel anywhere for your wedding. Please get in touch to discuss further, I would love to hear more about your day.
Are you Insured?
Definitely. I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
What happens if you are ill?
I would honestly say I would have to be bed bound not to make a wedding, however if this was to happen, I am lucky that I know some fantastic wedding photographers who would be able to stand in.
You say you’re a natural wedding photographer, does that mean we won’t get couple photos of just us two?
Of course you do. What’s important to me is that you enjoy your day with your friends, family and new spouse. So, I say I will only take you away for between 20-30 minutes. This is where you will have some alone time, we will go for a walk or find a suitable location near by. I will capture you in a natural, unposed and relaxed way. Just you being you without the awkwardness, silly poses or cheesy moments.
