Is there a minimum number of hours you cover for a wedding?
Yes, the minimum number of hours we cover for the actual wedding day is 6 hours.
When do we get our wedding photos?
We aim to provide all of your edited images on an online gallery within 12 weeks. In peak wedding season this can sometime take a little longer but we would keep you fully updated on progress. We also aim to provide your inital album design at this point.
How many photos do we get?
Our main focus is on the quality rather than the quantity when delivering your photographs. On average we deliver around 100 photographs per hour of photography.
How do we pick images for the wedding album?
The wedding album is the absolute pinnicle of what we produce and is the legacy of your wedding. On the wedding day we always have the album in mind when we are photographing. We visualise potential album spreads and pages as we shoot. For example, when photographing the brides details we would ensure we take a set of images which would potentially make up an album spread. The same with portraits. Spreads will be made up of complimentary images which follow the story of the day. Rather than handing over 1000+ images to you and then asking you to select we would take this onerous task from you and provide an inital design. You will then have the opportunity to work with us to make any changes and refine as we go along.
How many photos will there be in the wedding album?
As a broad indication we calulate 4-6 images per spread. In a 25 spread (50 side) album, there could be around 90-140 photos depnding on the style of design you prefer. Some couples prefer a more arty album with fewer photos and some prefer to have more comprehensive coverage of their wedding.
What is your style of wedding photography?
Timeless, sophisticated documentary images with stylish fashion editorial portraiture.
Do you provide wedding video services?
Although we specialise in photography, we partner with companies who offer high-end video services. We would be happy to put you in touch or liaise on your behalf if you prefer. We would also be more than happy to work alongside a video company you may have booked yourselves.
Do we have full usage of the wedding images?
You have full licence to use the images as you wish. The only restriction is that you are not able to use the images commercially. As the photographers, we hold the copyright to the images and you have the license to use the images as described in the contract apart from commercial use. In short, you can not sell on the images to any other company. This is the standard in the industry.
Where can you travel? Do you do desination weddings?
We can travel anywhere in the world to cover your events. If you have a requirement for a destination wedding we would be most happy to provide you with a bespoke wedding collection which will accommodate your recquirement.
How do we finalise the wedding booking?
To finalise a booking and have your dates confirmed we would require a 50% booking fee and a signed contract. This will secure your dates.
What is the payment plan?
Our usual payment plan would be 50% of the total on booking, 25% 90 days before your first event and the final 25% 4 weeks before your first event.
