What's a pre-shoot? It's a fancy word for an engagement shoot really! But it is a great opportunity to get together before your wedding day and have some fun. We can take some photos of you together as a couple in a relaxed outdoor setting in or around Cirencester. It's great if your feeling nervous about being in front of the camera. It's also a fabulous way to get to know me and try out my photography style before you book.
How long do you stay for? Every wedding day is different so I don't limit the amount of time I spend with you. If you choose my full day wedding photography package I'll be with your right from your bridal preparations early in the morning until everyones dancing and we have the whole story. It is a long day for me so while your eating I'll recharge and take some time out. Most people don't really want their photograph taken while eating...
Do we need to provide you with a meal? No, you don't have to. But if there's some going spare I'm not going to say no!
How far will you travel? For full day packages I'll travel anywhere in the UK.
How many photos will we get? It's difficult to provide an exact amount for many reasons... The number of guests and of course the weather conditions can effect these numbers. But do expect at least 350 beautifully edited images. I'm a story teller, so if it plays apart of the story and I'm happy with the quality, it's on your USB.
Why don't we get all the photos you take? Lots of photographs are taken, some are duplicates. Some you will have your eyes shut in, others you'll be pulling a face you'd rather not see! Some will be out of focus others will be under or over exposed (the day is so fast moving its impossible for this not to happen) My job as a photographer is to sift through these and give you the absolute best memories of your day. The files that I choose not to use are deleted once I have made my final selection and the edited photographs are moved onto an external hard drive and kept safe for the next year.
Are the images edited? They are indeed. I colour correct all my digital images in a way I see suitable, reflecting my style you see here on my website. Some will be in colour while others will be in black and white. I use a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop to do this. They are then put onto your USB in both high and low resolution. You can use the high resolution images for making prints and the low resolution ones are for sharing on social media. I do not put my name all over them. They are for you to enjoy.
Do you take formal photos? Yes, unless you really don't want me too! Although I work in a documentary style I do feel these shots are important. They are often requested by mums and dads as they expect a more traditional style of photography. They are also a nice keepsake as its not very often that you are all together as a family. I do suggest that you keep your list to around ten must haves, this stops the whole day revolving around them.
How long until we see our Wedding Photographs? I'll send you a sneak peek within the first week of being newly weds. Follwed by a link to your online gallery around 8-10 weeks after your big day.
Can you provide prints? Yes! Once your images are edited I'll send you a link to a secure online gallery within six weeks of your big day. This gives you access to a professional lab to order a variety of prints or framed prints.
We'd love an album... If you decide you'd like an album made then we can work together on this. I offer two different sized fine art albums with 15 spreads (30 pages) and the option to add on parents albums. If you'd like to order one I'll sit down with you over a coffee and we can pick out all your Favorites. I'll then send you a proof of your album and once your happy I'll send it off to be printed and delivered to you within six weeks. Read all about them HERE
Are there any hidden costs? No! Absolutely not, the prices you see are the prices you pay.
Are you insured? Yup! I most certainly am. I have both public liability and public indemnity insurance.
Do you have backup equipment? I most defiantly do. I'm a canon girl. I mainly shoot with my 5D Mark iii, but I do have two other cameras, spare lenses, extra batteries, more than enough memory cards, a tripod, light stand and a couple of flash guns. My bag is pretty heavy and full to the brim!
Will you use our photographs on your website? More than likely, yes! I'm pretty proud of what I create and I love to show it off on my Facebook page and blog. But I also understand that not everyone wants there faces all over the Internet, if you'd like to keep your images private just let me know and I will not post them.
How/when do we book you? 2018 is filling up fast, I also have lots of enquiries for 2019. So if you like what you see and are intreasted in my services do get in touch soon to find out if your wedding date is available.
Do you need a booking fee? To secure you wedding date I do require a non refundable booking fee of £300 within 7 days of booking. The outstanding balance is then due a minimum of 14 days before the big day.
We have more questions... That's not a problem, fire away! I'm more than happy to help in any way I can.
