Frequently Asked Questions
I’m sure you have loads!
HOW LONG DO YOU SHOOT FOR ON THE DAY?
I start coverage with bridal preparations, and go right through to the evening’s celebrations. This is typically 10-12 hours coverage on the day.
DO WE HAVE THE COPYRIGHT ON THE PHOTOS?
You have a license to print and share your photographs. The full copyright is retained by me. All that means is that you can’t sell, modify or enter the photographs in competitions.
HOW MANY PHOTO’S WILL WE GET?
There is no limit to the amount of shots I would take on your wedding day, but I would estimate to provide you with a minimum of 500 photos of what I believe to be the best representation of your day. Quality over quantity really is the best option!
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Maximum five weeks after your wedding day. I will deliver some highlight photos within 72 hours of your wedding so you have something to share with your friends and family.
DO YOU TAKE FORMAL GROUP PHOTOS?
Absolutely! I believe group photos are such an important way to capture people together who may not find themselves together again. For formal group photos, I take them as quickly and efficiently as possible so that you can enjoy the rest of your day! I like to make group portraits as fun as possible so that everyone is relaxed and this helps to capture natural smiles and laughter!
WHAT CAMERA EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I currently use 2 x Sony A1’s which I argue are the best wedding photography camera on the planet. They give me the opportunity to capture images with so much creativity and handle everything I throw at them! They are Sony’s most high end camera and I feel that all professionals should use the best gear possible especially ona wedding day! I primarily use prime lenses like the Sony 24mm 1.4 GM and 50mm 1.2 GM (hands down the best lens in the world). For couple portraits I love to get my Sigma 105 1.4 out for some stunning portraits and my Sony 16-35 2.8 GM lens comes out for the dance floor.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
Travel is included within a 2 hours drive of Eastbourne. I am very happy to travel further to photograph your wedding either in the UK or abroad but travel expenses may be incurred.
DO YOU SHOOT DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Definitely! I just charge additional travel fees for European weddings to cover flights and accommodation. Outside the EU a bespoke quote can be put together for you.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU ON THE BIG DAY?
I really appreciate it if you can. It’s a long day and some form of warm food goes a long way. However, if it’s not possible I fully understand and I will sort myself out, jsut let me know beforehand!
ARE YOU INSURED?
I sure am! Public liability and professional indemnity.
WHAT IF YOU’RE UNWELL ON THE DAY?
This is every wedding photographers worst nightmare! Ensuring that a wedding day is captured is the most importance to me. To date I have only ever missed one wedding where a week before I broke my collarbone. However, I have a network of awesome photographer friends who helped me out and covered the wedding for me and I would always move heaven and earth to ensure your day is covered. I put great care into my health and well being by staying active and eating well, I would never want this situation ever again however, accidents happen in life, just know your day will absolutely be covered.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
To secure your date, I’ll send you a quote which contains an invoice where you can choose the package you wish to book. At the time of booking I ask for a £300 booking fee and a signed online contract, this secures the date for your wedding. The final balance is due two weeks before the wedding date. Payment can be made by bank transfer or by Debit card. Online orders for photographs and vouchers can be paid for with credit and debit cards.
