Questions and answers
How many photos do you include?
For a full day of photography around 800 photos is about my average, although depending on the structure of the day this can vary. I like to only deliver photos that will really tell your story in the best way.
How do I get my photos?
All of your photos come on a USB with a gift box of images. Then you also get a password-protected online gallery which makes it super easy to share with other people. It saves a lot of hassle with people asking you for photos!
How long until we get our photos?
4 weeks is my turnaround time but I always try to get a few over to you before soon after the wedding.
Do you use a second photographer?
Mostly no, it’s just me on your wedding day. To be honest, if you want an unobtrusive approach I find this works best. But if you want someone to cover your partner getting ready or you’re having a large wedding (150+ guests) then I’ve got other people that I work with, just let me know when you book.
Do you do traditional, group photos?
I actually think these are really important, and I know in years to come you’ll treasure these. But I do keep these relaxed, no yelling at your guests! And I always recommend you limit these to about 5-6 combinations which takes around 30 minutes. Much more than this and you’re probably going to be quite fed up! I’m pretty efficient at rounding people up but I can promise you they always take longer than you might think!
Do you have back-up equipment?
Yes! I always work with two professional-grade cameras, lenses and flashes. All images are written to 2 memory cards at a time and then I back-up externally as soon as I leave the wedding and online as soon as I’m back in the office.
What happens if you’re ill?
It would take a lot for me to miss a wedding. Luckily it’s not happened yet! But if the worst happened I have a network of other photographers I can call on as back-up. I know how important this day is to you and I’d try everything in my power to make sure you don’t miss out.
Are you insured?
Yes. I have full Professional and Public Liability insurance
Should we feed you?
Yes please! As you can imagine it’s a long day with a lot of physical work and I get pretty bloody hungry. A well fed photographer means better photos for you! I don’t need the full meal though, or a table space, if you let your caterers know it’s for the photographer they can often sort something out. If it’s a problem, just let me know, the priority is your wedding, not me!
