How far in advance do you book?
Most couples typically book us about 9-15 months in advance. Shoot us an email at any point to check our availability.
Can you book the consultation?
Yes, you can book us upon our consult meeting, but it is not mandatory. Remember, that a consult does not secure your wedding date. The only thing that will secure your wedding date is a signed contract and a retainer. We suggest that you research your photography options then book consults close to the time when you are ready to book your photographer.
How many pictures will I get?
On average a full day wedding with both of us photographing will yield around 600-700 images. An engagement photo session will produce around 50-70 images, depending on the length of the engagement session. Please remember that the number of photos you will receive will depend on several variables: how long we have for photos, the number of details we will capture, travel time, and how agreeable your guests are to have their picture taken during candid moments.
Can I see more photos from our day?
We cannot open or re-cull images from achieves after they are closed. After your wedding, we go through the pictures thoroughly. We remove the blurry shots, test shots, unflattering shots, and any unnecessary duplicate images. We give you all the beautiful images and don’t hold anything back that is good. We don’t cull to meet a specific image number, so every image that meets our high standards.
How many photos do I get?
You will get 50-65 photos edit photos per hour of shooting. That’s about 500-650 photos in total. (that’s about one photo per minute, which is A LOT of photos). The number of photos depends on many things like timing, amount of action and travel time, but we never hold back any great images.
What is your style?
Our style is a mixture of documentary wedding photography meets lifestyle. About 90% of the time we let the day unfold naturally, and we capture creative & candid photos. We do add some artistic and creative touches to the couple’s portraits and overall approach to the day. We don’t ask you do any awkward posing and we don’t work off of a shot list except for family photos.
How do you deal with couples feeling “awkward” couples during photos?
Almost everyone describes themselves as awkward in front of the camera, so it’s normal to feel weird about having a photographer around snapping photos. We will help you through your portrait session, so you don’t feel nervous or awkward in front of the camera.
What is your turnaround time?
Typically our turnaround time is 3-4 weeks for weddings and 7-10 days for engagement photos.
Can I have the Raw files?
The raw files, or digital negatives, aren’t available for viewing or purchasing.
Do we get the copyrights of our wedding images?
The high-resolution images that you receive are yours to print, share and give to family and friends. We retain the copyright of all the photos we take.
How much is the retainer and when is the balance due?
A £200 retainer is needed, with a signed contract, to book & hold your wedding day exclusively. The balance is due 30 days before your wedding day. We offer payment plans to help.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept bank transfer and credit card via online payment portal.
Can we customize our package?
We are open to customizing packages if you need more or less coverage than our current packages have.
