Everything you need to know about your Wedding Coverage
How long will you stay at the wedding?
I want to make sure I have time to tell the story of your day properly, the standard package include a minimum of 5 hours photography which will usually cover everything from getting ready up until speeches before the wedding meal. If you’d like me to cover the evening, including cake cutting, first dance, evening location shot or anything else you have planned you can choose the enhanced package that includes this.
Can we have a digital copy of our photographs?
All packages include, free of charge, a DVD with low resolution copies of all your photographs subtly watermarked with my logo for you to use on Facebook etc. High resolution versions suitable for printing are made available in an online gallery for your friends to order and prints fulfilled by a Professional laboratory- Loxleys
How many pictures will we get?
I produce a final edit of around 200 photographs that I feel best tell the story of your day, with all the hard work
done for you. An additional a set of images that didn’t quite make my selection – (you may prefer to add or replace these into the main edit), or just enjoy them yourself are supplied on DVD. The number of these pictures varies depending on how long your day was, how many guests, etc but is usually about 600.
What kind of group shots should we take?
Group photography is a tradition and it is always nice for close relatives to have a more formal shot to remember the day. Shots with parents, close family and the wedding party are a good choice and, if time and location allows, you can also consider a group photo of all your guests.During the course of the day I try to capture capture informal images of your guests that give you natural looking memories of the important people in your life.
How long will we wait for our photographs or album?
My aim is to have the editing and post production of your photographs done in 2-6 weeks. After that, when you have approved the selection of photographs for your album, you should allow another 4 weeks for your album design to be put together and sent to you for approval. After any changes are made your album is sent to production where it will
usually be ready for you within 4 weeks. These times can be shorter during quiet times or longer during the height of the season but I’ll always ensure you wait no longer than you need to.
How do we pay…and when?
You can make payment by cash, cheque or electronic transfer. A deposit of £250 safeguards your wedding date with the balance of your chosen package being due two weeks before your wedding day, less a £300 completion payment not due until your photographs are ready and in your online gallery for you to see.
What areas do you cover?
Most of my work is done in the North East, Fife and the Perthshire but I regularly take work further afield, throughout the UK. I don’t charge for travel time but mileage is charged if exceeding the 100 inclusive miles .
What if none of your packages are what we are looking for?
I’ve created pre-priced packages to help you quickly see the kind of options you can have those are by no means an exhaustive list. I believe every Client is unique and there are various options of what you might include to create your own bespoke package. We can customise your exact requirements and be flexible before during and after the wedding. consultation.
Will we meet before the wedding?
I always encourage meeting not only before you book but also in the run up to the wedding. I find it important to get to know you so I can understand more about your likes and dislikes and Sometimes it is difficult to meet up depending on where you live in which case regular phone calls, e-mails and Skype are the best way to keep in touch and get advice when putting your plans together. The most important part of the process is the final meeting which often takes place at the venue where we will chat about the day and do some pre wedding shots to get you feeling more relaxed about the photography on the day.
Can we see examples of complete weddings?
All the images i use are ‘real people at actual weddings I encourage you to see examples of complete sets of wedding photographs to help you understand how I work and see the kind of quality you can expect from me. I have sample albums which feature the photographs I have produced for clients but if you cannot make it to a meeting to see them, I can arrange for relevant samples to be posted into an online gallery for you to access. you can also look at the portfolio here on my website
