FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE ?
Wedding photographers use a number of phrases to describe what style of photography they use, such as, photojournalism, reportage, documentary, alternative, etc... The meaning of these varies, dependent on whom you speak to.
We strive to capture your wedding day whilst being considerate, un-obtrusive and supportive, meaning you will receive beautiful natural imagery that tells your wedding day love story.
The wedding photographs received will be a true reflection of your big day. The joy, ambience, fun, love and laughter will be there for you to share forever.
DO YOU OFFER GROUP OR STAGED SHOTS ON REQUEST?
Yes we generally recommend between 6-8 group shots to our couples, this way we get the essential shots without stealing you and your guests away for too long. When getting those all-important couple shots we generally set aside only up to 20 minutes, this way we can get you back to the party as quickly as possible. This is a day you will only get to experience once so by limiting the time we spend shooting group and couple shots to a minimum we ensure you get the very best out of your wedding day.
DO YOU POSE US DURING THE WEDDING?
The key thing for us is that you relax, if you do not feel relaxed it will show in the photos and film. We want you to have fun, laugh and just be you! it’s so important that we capture your personalities. We do not pose you in the general meaning of the word but if needed position you in a way to help your natural characters shine.
DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS?
Yes! it’s a great fun way to get to know each other and to see first hand how we will shoot on your big day! It can help put our couples at ease ahead of their big day especially if they may be a little nervous.
Our couples love a pre wedding shoot, many of them use the photographs for invitations or save the date cards or some just because they can!
We can arrange to meet at a location central to us both, if you are keen to book an engagement shoot please do so at the earliest opportunity.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE CAMERA BREAKS?
Plan for the worst and hope for the best, they say! Do not worry we are professionals and always bring spare equipment with us on the day. Our main wedding photographer and wedding videographer carry two cameras with them at all times as standard. Our cameras save to two memory cards at the same time so if a card fails we know we will always have a backup.
WHAT IF IT RAINS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
Well we do live in the UK well known for the odd shower or ten! Nearly every single wedding we shoot in the UK experiences periods of wet weather at some point during the day. Sometimes this has no effect at all on the day and other times we just have to either work around it or embrace it for what it is.
We always strive to get you guys outside at some point during the day, so as soon as the rain eases or stops we will seize the moment to grab you for a few couple shots. To be fair some of our favourite photos have been taken in the rain. Group portraits can always be done inside as we have the lighting equipment to ensure you get beautiful sharp images.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, we are covered up to £10,000,000 enabling us to shoot at virtually any venue in the UK and beyond, many venues require a copy of our insurance ahead of your big day as standard . Please check with your photographer before you book as the venue will not allow them to shoot your day without the required cover in place.
HAVE YOU WORKED AT MY VENUE BEFORE?
We get asked this so many times... and the response is generally " We haven’t worked at Buckingham Palace but we know we would make it look amazing!" We have shot at hundreds of locations throughout the UK and beyond. Blenheim Palace is one of the favourite places that we've shot at.
Having worked at your venue isn’t essential, some photographers who shoot at the same venues time and time again can become stagnant and produce the same images over and over again. We want your day to be as unique as you are, fresh eyes often see something new and exciting.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes! We shoot weddings across the UK and abroad. Jamaica being one of our favourite destinations, being lucky enough shot two weddings there.
We actually have a bucket list of destinations where we would like to shoot including, Santorini, Lake Garda, New York and New Zealand.
Lets get talking to see what we can work out!.
Just include the package you want plus additional travel and accommodation costs. A simple bed and breakfast will suffice.
