Every bride has some questions about her wedding day photography
Here’s a run down of the most frequently asked questions
WHAT CAMERA DO YOU SHOOT WITH
I shoot with a professional full frame Canon 5D body and the professional L series lenses.
You can read more about my kit here
WHEN WILL OUR PHOTOS BE READY
I aim to fully edit all your photo’s within 2-3 weeks from the date of your wedding.
CAN WE ORDER PRINTS
Yes you can order prints directly from your own online gallery. Your friends and family can also order prints directly from the gallery too!
I use a professional printing lab so you can be sure to receive the highest quality prints. Not only can you order standard prints there are also options to order prints on canvas, acrylic block or bamboo frames. You can take a look at what is available here
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU”RE ILL AND CAN’T MAKE THE WEDDING
This is something many brides worry about and thankfully I’ve yet to be ill when I’m schedulled to photograph a wedding. However I have stepped in to help out other wedding photographers and this has resulted in me having a large network of fellow photographers whos work I admire that I can call upon should I need someone to step in. Should this photographer charge more than I do I would cover the extra cost and if they charge less then you would be refunded the difference.
The process that normally happens in these situations is the photographer reaches out and collates a shortlist of available replacements and then should you wish to choose your replacement you can, alternatively I can pick the best available option for you if you prefer.
Please know that I will always do everything I can to make it to my wedding bookings. If you are not getting married locally to me I will aim to arrive the day before to ensure there is no issues with traffic etc on the day.
HOW DO WE ORDER ALBUMS
Once your wedding photos are ready you will receive a link to your own unique gallery. Take time to look over your images and return back after a couple of days to get a real feel for which images are your favourite. If you decide to order an album you will first need to decide which album you prefer as they come in a genuine leather or a coffee table book style.
Once you’ve decided which album you like drop me an email with your album choice and we’ll discuss which images to include. It is nice when designing an album to tell a story of your day which usually mean starting at the beginning and working through the day in the order which it happened. I will guide you in terms of how many images to include from each section of your day and you can guide me in terms of which images you’d like blown up to cover a whole double page and which you’re happy to form a smaller part of your album.
