Here is a list of frequently asked questions asked by brides before they hire me as their wedding photographer

 

Q : I would like you to shoot my wedding . How do I start the process ?

A: Reach me via my contact form along with your wedding date and venue, if secured. I can respond by email or phone.

Once you’ve decided to choose me as your photographer, I will send a contract for you to sign and and return with a deposit. After that, you can check “find a photographer” off your wedding to-do list. hire a wedding photographer

 

Q: How much do I need to deposit

A: I require a £100 initial deposit  and the rest of the fee to be paid not less than 28 days before the wedding day. (bookings taken within 28 days of the wedding date require full balance to be paid upon booking)

 

Q : Where are you based ?

A: I am based in Torrishome, Morecambe, Lancashire and cover all the North West of England

 

Q: Do I need to sign a contract ?

A: Yes. You must sign a contract before you can hire me as your wedding photographer

 

Q: Do you take getting ready shots ?

A: Yes I do if requested. These are some of my favorite photographs to capture. The energy and excitement of everyone moving about is there, but I can also capture the calm and solemn moments when the bride and groom think about their wedding vows, the friends and family around them, and everything leading up to and away from this moment.

 

Q: Do you shoot black and white ?

A: I love B&W photographs. There is something so timeless about them. Since I shoot digital, this allows me to decide after the fact whether I want to process the image in B&W or Colour. However, I generally shoot the image with a colour preference in mind based on what I am seeing.

 

A: There are countless ways to edit a photo. Some may appeal to one couple, while not to another. If you see a particular style you like, please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate.

 

Q: Do you offer albums? 

A: Yes. I offer custom-designed very high quality handmade albums

 

Q: Who chooses the photographs in the album?

A: I offer you a chance to pick a selection of photos that you must have in the album. This can be anywhere from 0 to the entire album. However, I do advise that you let me choose the majority of the photos for the album since I will use my best judgment to select the best and more relevant photos to tell the story of your wedding day. One of the top reasons, couples often times say they haven’t ordered the albums from their photographers is because they haven’t got around to choosing the pictures for the album.

 

Q: Do I get my pictures on a disk or USB or other ?

A: All collections include either a beautiful heart shaped USB in boutiqe packaging with hi res print ready images of your wedding or are supplied as digital downloads . Full Printing rights are included.

 

A: Yes, all packages include an online gallery which has a direct print purchase facility and social media sharing facility. Gallery remains online for 6 months.

 

Q: When will I get to see my wedding photos?

A: Your photos will generally be ready within 2-4 weeks following the wedding. I go through a careful process of choosing the best images from the day and processing each of them with individual attention.

 

Q: Are prints and canvas wall art available ?

A: Yes, they can be ordered directly online via your online gallery by you or your guests and delivered straight to your door.  Products are of the highest quality and produced by a leading Pro Lab.....not to be confused with high street  labs.
