You probably have some questions and hopefully they will be answered below, if not then you may contact me with any questions HERE where I will be happy to answer them all.
Booking fees and Payments
For weddings there is a £200 none refundable booking fee which will secure your required date. Your booking fee is taken from your final balance. Example: If your package price was £1595 then after paying your booking fee, this would leave an outstanding balance of £1395
Your balance will be due THREE calendar month before your wedding date. I like to make things easy so you may pay anytime before this and you may also pay in instalments as much as you like.
All other photo shoot services is payable is full at the time of booking.
How long do you stay at a wedding?
My coverage is typically 8-10 hours (depending upon package) which is perfect to capture the morning preparations and also gives me plenty of time to capture the dress, shoes, flowers, hair, makeup and of course the mayhem of the morning. All the bits that no one would never have seen.
Depending on where your getting ready I will then set off to either the church or venue and capture the grooms men and arrival of the guests. Your church and or venue will also be photographed while I await the arrival of the bridesmaids and bride.
Following your ceremony any family group photos required will be captured, including a beautiful private but relaxed photo session of the couple themselves. Just leave the magic to me and I will capture some beautiful images of you both.
Guests mingling drinking pre-drinks and enjoying canopies will all be captured along with all the detailed shots of your venue such as the place names, seating plans, cake, table centre pieces and decor in general. Of course there is also the speeches, Cutting of the cake, maybe the tossing of a bouquet and everything else in between.
My day will end shortly after the first dance.
Can you stay longer?
Of course, I charge £120 per additional hour, however if you have also booked the Photo Kiosk or the All-Inclusive Package which includes the Kiosk then you do get me for an extra 2 hours until 10pm. This may work out as better value.
Can I have you for just half a day?
Of course you can, just contact me with your details and I will be able to supply a bespoke quote for you.
What is the Consultation Visit?
Once your date is booked I will arrange with you a suitable time for me to visit you both, this will allow me to ask all about your plans. With over a 1,000 weddings under my belt I will be able to draw up a wedding plan time line for you to give you some structure to the day, no one wants a day of chaos not knowing what is happening and when!. I will also be able to show you some physical samples of the products you will receive. During the meeting you will also be provided with your contract which I will also go through with you.
The meeting will be quite in depth and will cover all and any questions you may have. Please allow 2 hours for this meeting.
You may be getting ready at Home, Then getting married at Church before then going onto your venue for your reception. This is all covered and no additional fees are charged.
Do we get all the images or just a selection?
With my self as your wedding photographer, you will receive every image I have taken. Some photographers will only give you the very best which may only be 200. I will give you all images including any silly ones. If I have taken 800 then you will receive 800 With the exception of multiple shots which are of the same. Foe example I may take 4 shots of a family group and I will supply the best (the one where everyone is actually looking and have eyes open)
Are all the photos edited?
Yes, Many photographers will only edit the ones that are going to be going into your wedding album. I will deliver every image fully edited.
What resolution will the images be?
This is a question that many couples do not to ask. You may be promised will all the photos etc. but when you get them, they may only be suitable for printing at 6x4 or large enough for a facebook profile picture.
I give you full size full resolution images which you can you to print banner sized photos and canvases should you wish.
It is an automatic right that whoever takes a photo owns the rights to that image. You will receive full copyright rights to use your delivered images as you wish. You may print them and even give them to family members and share them as you wish.
You may not however supply any images to other professionals such as makeup artists, florists or anyone else who has supplied services for your wedding. You must point these people to myself, I will never refuse their requests for images, I just put my logo at the bottom that is all.
Are you Insured?
Absolutely, This is a full time business and so insurance is a must. Did you know that venues can refuse anyone you hire in if they do not have insurance. The general requirement is £5 Million liability insurance cover. I am covered for Liability and professional indemnity. Any electrical equipment I may bring on the day is also PAT safety tested annually and I am happy to provide certificates for all if required.
Oh wow! I could go on a lot about these. These are truly designer hand made albums from the finest designers in Italy. The possibilities are truly endless, If you want something totally unique and bespoke then you can have it. Pretty much any material any colour in any combination. When I show you these albums and possibilities your mind will open up to a whole new world. Every album comes with a lifetime guarantee. Now that is craftsmanship.
