Wedding Photography FAQs
Which area do you cover?
Are you fully insured?
Do you shoot in B&W or colour?
How do we book you?
I always like to meet the couple and get to know each other a little – even it that is on skype if you live abroad or lead very busy lives. I’m interested in your story – how you met, the proposal, the venue, the details. Truth is I love weddings. I like to be able to show you examples of my work and sample albums from previous weddings. If you do make the decision to book me I ask for a completed and signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee of £500 which can be paid by bank transfer or cheque. Unfortunately, I can’t hold dates without the form and fee because in peak season I often have many enquiries for the same day. The balance will be due one month before your wedding date.
Do we sign a contract?
Should we book an engagement shoot?
Some couples really want to experience what it’s like being in front of my camera before the wedding day. If you do decide to book a shoot then I suggest we make a plan to do something fun and different. Location is very important to the final photos so we can chat about the kind of styling you would like. The imagery is always different to your wedding day and some couples have used their engagement images for wedding stationery, guest books and signing boards. You can see a selection of engagement shoot photos here.
Can you provide prints for the guests?
Do you retain the copyright?
Yes I do because it is essential that every photographer does. I do grant you a full lifetime usage license which is exactly what you need.
