6What is your wedding photography style?
I would describe my wedding photography as natural and relaxed, but I am also customer-led, meaning I want to capture the images the way you visualize as well. I like to include a good mixture of reportage photography, couples portraits, group shots and detail images. Giving you a collection of images best representing your wedding day.
7Who owns the copyright to the wedding photographs, can I print my own?
With the images I provide you can share and print or reproduce however you wish. You are not limited or restricted to have to buy prints directly from me. I provide high res digital copies so you can print them up as large as you like using the printer of your choice. Legally the photographer of any image always retains the original copyright. However within the contract I give restricted usage rights: this means you can print and share however you like with friends and family, you just cant sell the images on, or license them for use in other media.
8What if my family and friends want prints from the wedding day?
You can share and print images for them from your USB for free or they can also view and/or purchase prints directly from the online gallery that I supply as part of your wedding package. Whatever is easiest for them (and you!).
9What happens if it rains on the wedding day?
Not a problem, I have photographed lots of weddings where it has rained. I actually carry umbrellas and wellies for the Bride so we can still have fun shots outside if needed. During the summer months it is usually just a short shower anyway. We will also discuss alternative indoor options when we meet for the venue visit, which I do with all my couples before the wedding to discuss their finalised wedding itinerary.
10What albums/books do you have available?
I have a beautiful selection of coffee table books and British made albums, in a superb range of colours and styles, with soft leathers and plush fabrics with optional embossing. The books are available in hardback or softbound with optional picture wraps. All albums and books are purely optional and available as an addition to my packages. Please contact me for more information and pricing.
11How many wedding photographs would I receive on the USB?
We do happily snap away throughout the day, and for a full day you can expect between 600-800 photographs on the USB, all high-resolution and fully edited.
12Can we adjust the timings of the wedding package you offer?
Yes! If you would like to book me for a shorter or longer day that’s no problem at all. Just let me know the details and I can send you a quote.
13Can we buy vouchers?
Of course just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can provide vouchers for you, or your friends and family.
