 Frequently Asked Questions

 

We’d Like To Book You. What Happens Now?

I’ll check that your date is available and we can arrange to have a chat either over the phone or in person. I’m based in Sherwood in Nottingham and I’m happy to come to meet you if you live near. Evenings or weekends are usually best for people and that’s fine for me as well; although I am around during the day if that’s more convenient.

 

If you then decide to book you complete a booking form and you send it back along with the non-refundable deposit of £100 and then I’m all yours.

 

When Is The Remaining Balance Due?

The remaining balance is due one calendar month before your wedding. I’ll email you with an invoice a few weeks before. CDs and albums can be paid for before or after your wedding.

 

Who Comes To The Wedding?

Just me and my cameras.

 

Do You Take Group Shots?

I am happy to take some group shots if that’s what you’d like. I suggest about 8 group shots and like to keep them relaxed, informal and not too long!

 

You need to forward a list of your groups to me before the day with the names of the guests in each shot – as this makes it so much easier and quicker for the people who are gathering your groups together.

 

It’s also a good idea to nominate a few people who know your guests, to gather the groups together for you.

You need to allow approximately 30 minutes to have these taken.

 

Do You Charge For Travelling Expenses?

My prices include travel within a 50 mile radius of Nottingham for weddings and 25 miles for family and engagement shoots. For further distances I charge 40p per mile to cover the cost of my fuel.

 

Do You Need Fed?

I usually leave that entirely up to you – I’m happy to bring along some food to eat while you and your guests are eating, but I’ll never say no to the offer of some yummy wedding food!

 

Do You Need A Bed?

Depending on distance from Nottingham, accommodation is sometimes needed. We can chat about this before you make your booking.

 

 

What Happens After The Wedding?

I start editing your photos straight away. You should be able to see your images in your online gallery within 4 – 6 weeks of your wedding.

 

Will Our Photos Appear On Your Blog?

Yes, I try to blog at least a few images from each wedding or photo-shoot, so this is where you will see a preview of your images first. I’ll send you a link when it’s ready to view.

 

How Many Photos Do We Get?

It’s difficult to say an exact number, but for an all day wedding package you will receive at least 400. In most cases there will be a lot more!

 

Can Our Guests Order Photos After The Wedding?

You and your guests are able to purchase prints or download images instantly from your online gallery.

 

Can We Print Our Images From The Disc?

Yes, you have full printing rights to print any of your photos and I include a Printing and Sharing license. I retain copyright to all your photos which means that your images can’t be sold, edited or used commercially without my permission and I have the right, if I wish, to use your images to advertise, enter competitions and promote my services (on my blog, website, Facebook, marketing material etc.)

 

Can We Share Our Photos On Facebook?

I include a folder of web-sized images on your Disc. I’m happy for you to display these online for personal use. These web-sized images display a logo, and I ask that you do not crop out or otherwise remove the logo. I also ask that you do not edit the images in Photoshop or other image editing software.

 

We Are Getting Married Abroad. Would You Come And Take Our Photos?

I’d love to! Just get in touch and we can discuss your plans

 

If I have forgotten anything please drop me an email so that I can help you out.
