Do we get some black and white images?
Yes, I make a professional judgement whether they will look their best in either colour or black and white. Every image is taken in the highest resolution in colour so we can always change a favourite image to black and white.
Can you explain your style?
I document your wedding in a reportage style with many candid moments. I am unobtrusive capturing those precious moments as the day unfolds.
Can we have some family groups as well as portraits?
Yes, of course. I would capture a few groups of your choice of key people at your wedding. Most couples choose between 6 and 8 groups, so the guests have time to enjoy the wedding day. You will need to schedule time for couple portraits to ensure you have some stunning images.
Will you do detail shots?
Yes, these will be a treasured memory of your day, which will want to be remembered.
Can you design an album for us?
Yes, I use Graphistudio
Do you visit the venue before the wedding?
Yes, I always visit the venue to check the surroundings and locate best backdrops and favourable spaces to take groups and formal portraits.
What kit do you use and what happens if it fails?
I use a Canon 5D Mark 4 and Mark 3, I always carry a spare body.I have a variety of lenses, ranging from wide angle, macro, zoom and prime portrait lenses.I use Canon flashes and carry a back up.
Are you a member of any professional bodies?
I am a member of SWPP, (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers)
Can we meet before the wedding?
Yes, I like to chat through the detail of the day and your expectations. I like to know as much as possible about your day, so am happy to receive emails and phone calls with any plans, concerns, etc.
What happens after the wedding?
I am a perfectionist and would normally delivery the edited images between 4-6 weeks after your wedding. Each image is optismed in the editing process.
You will be sent a private link to an online gallery. Once you have approved the images, the gallery will have a password which you may share with your guests.
I will also provide a 5-6 minute slideshow set to music which you can easily share with family and friends.
If you have an album as part of your package, I will personally design the album with your chosen images, then you will be able to proof check it electronically.
At this stage I will show you album examples and materials so you can have a bespoke product.
Would you do a digital package without an album?
My simple answer is yes I would. These images are ready to print, share on Facebook, iPad or on your TV screen or computer. You have full control of the high resolution images, copyright free with no watermarks. However I would recommend an album.
