Questions To Ask Your Photographer
Weddings Frequently Asked Questions We all want amazing photographs from our wedding day and we all know that after the confetti has blown away, the cake has been eaten and the honeymoon is long forgotten your wedding photographs will help you to keep re-living your wonderful wedding day for many years to come.
So with this in mind, I have compiled a list of Questions to ask your Wedding Photographer. I want to share with you the many reasons of why I think you should consider me to capture your big day.
Please click on any of the questions below
Yes. I’ve been a full-time photographer since 2006. My working week is dedicated to developing my craft but also when I say “I’m available” it really means I’m available and I’m not having to work around some other job
A maximum 25. This allows me to spend more time after your wedding to work on your photographs and wedding album. This also means however that I am not able to photograph the wedding of every couple that I meet
For the smaller mid-week weddings I’ll be with you for up to 4 hours. For the Full-Day weddings, I’ll be with you from the Bridal Prep session all the way through to the first dance. Additional coverage is available if required
Haha! I’ve noticed too that lots of “new-to-the-profession” photographers tend to use models dressed as brides to fill their website, blogs etc with those photographs (but hey, everyone has to start somewhere). I can assure you that all the photographs on my website, blog, wedding albums etc are from real weddings with real people, just like you.
Based in Essex I travel throughout all the UK and overseas to photograph weddings
I’m pleased to say that I’m very hardy, however I do have a backup plan in place in case of emergencies. Being part of the The Master Photographers Association means that I have a network of other qualified photographers that I can call upon. So you can rest assured
I don’t have one particular style as each wedding is different. My couples tell me I’m great at really capturing the spirit of their day by providing, fresh, creative, fun and vibrant photography. I’m unobtrusive where necessary but will slightly direct some of the photographs to ensure that we get the most amazing photographs of you
Yes, no problem at all. I love photography and know that many of your guests will too. I just ask that if you have any “super enthusiastic” photographer guests, that you mention to them not to get in our way too much
As your wedding will be unique, various packages are available depending on your individual requirements and budget. For more information please do visit the Wedding Photography Page
Upon receipt of your signed booking form I take just £250 as a booking fee with the remaining balance only being required 6 weeks before your wedding day
No, not at all. We can easily bring along a packed lunch. If you would like to provide us something then sandwiches or a bar meal would be great but there is no need to go to expense of providing us the same meal as your guests.
The engagement shoot is a great opportunity to get used to being photographed by me and for us to cover some poses we’ll do on your day. From the session you will choose your favourite photo and I will make it into a large signature board for your friends & family to sign on the day.
In this digital age many people like to have their images this way. I have Digital collections available and also you can buy these along with any of the album collection. You’ll also receive a reproduction licence allowing you to arrange your own printing should you wish.
If you have a particular style in mind please let me know. As a creative photographer I tend not to follow the crowd but instead work hard at creating the best photographs that fully capture the essence of the day without them looking like another couple’s wedding photographs.
If it’s a smaller mid-week then it’s likely that it will just be me. With the full day weddings I usually have my assistant with me.
I carry extensive Public Liability and Public Indemnity Insurance
Being a member of The Master Photographers Association means that I follow a strict code of conduct and practice and that I have gone through a challenging qualification process to ensure that you will receive the best photographs possible
The process is fairly simple and details can be found on the Wedding Photography Page.
