As a wedding photographer, I get asked a lot of questions, I often hear "this may be a silly question but..."
There is no such thing as a silly question for any wedding photographer if you need to know something just ask, I'm always happy to answer anything. A wedding is not something you organise every day. There will naturally be many questions that you may have regarding your wedding photography, so I have listed some of these on this page. I'm sure other questions are running through your mind that I haven't answered, but I hope to answer most of them and for the other things, well we can chat about them just contact me, I don't bite I promise. So if you do have specific questions then please just drop me a line!
Q: Where are you based, and would you be able to be our photographer our wedding is...
Firstly Let me say, I Travel Everywhere!
I live in Stockton-on-Tess, in the North East of England, if you haven't heard of my little town it's near, Middlesbrough, Thirsk, not too far from me we have Newcastle slightly north of me and York slightly south. However, I travel the whole of the UK and further, so yes I can be your wedding photographer at...
Q: Do you have insurance?
Yes, I have business insurance which includes public liability.
Q: What equipment do you have/use?
I have just about 2 of everything just in case, A Canon R6 Mii, Canon 5D IV (DSLR, full-frame sensor x3), off-camera flashes x3, and an endless amount of batteries to keep me going a full day, light stands and the list does go on but those are the most important ones.
Q: How many photos can I expect?
This, depends on a few factors, first of all, how many hours you would like me to cover for your wedding and also how many guests and details do you have? For 5-hour coverage, you can expect 300-600 photos, for 7-hour coverage 400-700 and for 10 hours 600-1200
Q: When and how do we book?
As soon as you have the date for your wedding to avoid losing out to someone else, you should think about booking me sooner rather than later, to make sure your date is available. Once you pay your deposit (£300) the date is yours. I sometimes get booked up to 2 years in advance. Your deposit also secures the current prices which may increase later.
Q: Can we meet up before we book?
I always like to meet all couples, I think it's important too. Where? I have a lovely little office attached to a cool little Restaurant Bar, so coffee and treats are on me. If you prefer a Video call that's okay too!
Q: Where else can I see your work?
I have social media accounts that you can see more of my work and reviews, Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest and Google, and my review pages
Q: Is it just you?
Yes, but if you would like another photographer too I work closely with other professional wedding photographers that would be happy to do this, this can be arranged as an additional option.
Q: Do we need/get a contract?
Yes this is very important for both you and I, this is to reassure you exactly what you can expect from me and as all weddings are different they need to be made specifically for you.
Q: How long till we have our photograph's?
You will receive a sneak peek within 72 hours of your wedding day. All photos are ready between 3-5 weeks (out of peek wedding season) after your wedding you will receive a link to your password-protected online wedding gallery. It can take 4-8 weeks during the busy season. I do offer an express service which means your images will be ready within 5 days of your wedding (subject to availability) see my wedding packages for more details.
Q: Who / How does the album process work?
I will personally design the album layout to ensure it tells the story of your day the way it unfolded. I would then send you a copy and this would be your opportunity to make any alterations with the choice of picture or layout. Once you are happy with the design production takes 2-4 weeks.
