FQA - WEDDING
What are the advantages of hiring a professional photographer?
A professional photographer is experienced in capturing beautiful images despite the often stressful conditions that a wedding can present. They are proficient at organising group shots, creative when looking for good locations in bad weather conditions and technically experienced to take the very best images they can on your day. They are also aware of all the little details the bride and groom may want recorded. The equipment they use is specifically designed to capture perfect images in low light conditions, for example in ceremonies when flash is often prohibited. In addition a professional photographer will carry a full set of back up equipment in case of any problems on the day. Weddings often take years to plan and cost thousands of pounds. After the event the only thing which remains are your images, so it is worth making sure they are the best they can be.
Can you give us a better price?
Please don't ask. Apart from the fact that I don't discount my work, it wouldn't be fair to my other clients. Also, the way I structure my fees makes it easy to divide up the total wedding photography expenditure.
How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
Depending on the details of your wedding I suggest booking as soon as you have set the date and know the amount of coverage you will need. Due to the nature of the wedding season I book on a first come first booking basis. Although I would love to shoot your wedding I can't guarantee your day unless the retainer has been received.
What are the costs of the various levels of coverage?
Just like a bride choosing her dress, we believe a wedding photography package must be tailored to the couple's wants. To ensure I capture your day the way you want it. Some factors include the length of coverage (just the ceremony or all day); various products including wedding albums, gift albums, wall art and more. There are many packages with varied hours of coverage designed to suit your needs and budget.Wedding photography packages start from $1000.
What is required to book my session?
I require 50% down payment along with your signed contract to book your date. The final 50% is due on a post-dated check for the day of your session. If you like, the remaining payment can be made prior to the session.
Do we get a discount on our engagement session?
Yes you certainly do! The large wedding package includes an engagement session free of charge!
Can we have more then one location for our photos?
Yes! If time allows you can have as many as you want (within the city limits).
Do we get the high-resolution files?
Yes! I deliver an edited high resolution DVD with every wedding. All of the images on the DVD have been carefully cropped, color corrected and are ready print. Photos on the DVD can be printed at the lab of your choice.
What if I lose my DVD
Back up, Back up, and Back up. You've heard it all before. I make copies of the DVD's and also store your images on separate hard drives for 5 years.
