Frequently Asked questions
Q: How much can I expect to pay up-front?
A: All bookings require a minimum 25% deposit.
Q: When do I have to pay by?
A: Unlike a lot of photographers out there, you pay after your pictures are done. That's what the deposit is for. You wouldn't expect to pay for your meal before you ate it, so why would you be expected to pay for your photograper before they've taken any pictures? Once we've agreed on the pictures, and albums if required, we can sort out the balance.
Q: What if I can't afford to pay for it all in one go?
A: Don't worry about it. We can sit down and discuss your options. It makes no sense to work out a payment plan you simply can't afford. You've just gotten married, I know how expensive it is. So relax, we'll work it out.
Q: What if my guests want to 'gift' a contribution to the cost of our photography?
A: Not a problem. If your guests want to contribute toward the cost of your wedding photography as a way of a gift, we can set up a Paypal account and payments will be put toward the cost making it simpler, and cheaper, for you.
Q: I hate having my picture taken...
A: Not really a question, but if I got paid by the number of times I heard that, I'd have no need for photography in my life. OK, nobody really likes to have their picture taken, I hate it. It can feel uncomfortable and some poses are completely un-natural. It's alright. I'll help you. If there's a certain part of your anatomy that you're not too happy about, we can work around it. Honestly, most of the people in the pictures on my website are not professional models. Just normal people who've had a bit of coaching.
Q: What if my guests want to take pictures?
A: We encourage friends and family to get involved. I'll be more than happy to get you set up, and if they want, we'll have friends and family take a few pictures before we do.
Q: We don't really want anything specific, is that OK?
A: That's totally fine, I'm what's known as a 'Creative Photographer', so I'm pretty confident we'll come up with some ideas. I like to talk to parents, close friends or whomever is most important to you beforehand as they always want something specific. We'll get those too.
Q: Are we limited on the number of pictures?
A: Not at all, I'll provide you with a range of 'polished' images that are ready for an album should you wish to get something arranged yourself. If you want us to do your album, we'll work with you to pick out your favourites. Depending on what you're after, you'll get between 50-200 high quality, JPEG (print ready) polished images for yourselves, plus all of the original images from your day.
Q: What's the turn-around time?
A: I don't airbrush images, I'll do a little post processing and tidying up and that's about it, so turnaround time on images is quite reasonable, about a week for proofs, then 2-3 weeks depending on what you want. If you want an album, we'll work as quickly as possible to sort out which ones you want in your album and go from there. Plenty of time to get your honeymoon out of the way.
Q: What if I don't want a 'Package'?
A: That's OK, let us know what kind of thing you want and what your budget is, we'll work the rest out for you. Trust me, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Q: What options do I have?
A: I recommend that all of my clients have a good look around and think about exactly what it is they want on their day. It's up to you what kind of style or how long you book for. If you want specific images or are just happy to leave me to it, it's entirely up to you. If you change your mind along the way, don't worry about it. Just tell me and we'll do everything we can to accommodate your requests. I'd suggest putting a flickr or blogspot account with all of the types of images you want and show it to us. It'll let us know exactly what you want and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Q: What do I do about Albums?
A: From picture books to some of the highest quality albums in the world, we've got you covered. Our range of manufacturers is as wide-ranging and diverse as our clients requests. We'll be more than happy to find you something that suits your needs and your budget. A selection of popular albums can be found HERE
Q: Some of my friends and family took some amazing pictures, can we add them to our album?
A: Of course you can. It's all about you.
Q: What's the catch?
A: There is no catch. What you see is what you get. It's all in writing. For a printable version of our Terms & Conditions please click HERE
Q: How far will you travel?
A: I will travel anywhere in the world. The price for your wedding shoot won't change, however I do ask that you cover fair and reasonable expenses. If you're getting married on the other side of the World, on a remote desert Island, I'll be there, I just ask you pay for me to get there and stay for as long as you require me.
Q: Will you run off in the middle of our day?
A: Nope, I only book one shoot per day. Regardless of what your requirements are, we'll be on time and won't rush off for the next job.
