Wedding photography – Your Questions Answered!

What’s your approach to wedding photography?

We love to capture genuine, fun and relaxed portraits and moments to create a story of your day. We love natural light, which is a quick and easy way to capture people, and we also like using lighting, where possible, to create a few memorable ‘art pieces’ from your day.

How much does it cost?

We have one standard wedding collection package that costs £1695. This includes two of us capturing your day, up to 8 hours coverage (additional hours can be added @ £130 for both photographers) and either a high resolution USB of the photographs for your personal use, or a 10×10” album with 60 photographs.

Our fees include travel within a 40 mile radius of BS3; if your wedding is further afield we can give you an accurate cost for travel and accommodation, if required.

All of our prices are vat inclusive.

How many photographs do we receive?

With our standard collection, you receive around 450-500 photographs. If we’re staying at your wedding longer, the number will increase and is often 500-600 for up to 10 hours. Every single photograph is finished to a high standard, and will be ‘print-ready’.

What about planning the wedding photography?

We really value having some time with you before your wedding to get to know you both, understand the kind of day you’re planning and to familiarise ourselves with the details. After your planning consultation, we put together a shoot list so that, on the day, we remember details like what group photos you would like, what time you’re sitting for the wedding breakfast, and so on. We love having your ideas and input during the planning and getting to know you and your style a little!

Do you shoot formal photographs?

Yes we do, but we like to keep proceedings fun and spontaneous, so we recommend a maximum of ten group shots that we know we can achieve in 20-30 minutes. As there are two of us, one of us can focus on capturing the more informal moments in between the formal shots, so you get a wonderfully diverse selection of images.

What happens if one or both of you falls ill on the day?

We have captured over 350 weddings together and this has never happened yet – however, we like to be prepared! We’re a part of a big network of photographers so would find a substitute, who shoots in a similar style, to capture your day.

How long until we receive our wedding photographs?

Our typical turnaround is 3-4 weeks, although this may be less during the off peak season and more during super busy times. For us, it’s not about the speed, but the quality of the end result.

Do you offer wedding albums?

We have searched high and low to find two album suppliers whom we love working with, and who supply beautifully finished albums that are built to last. You can choose between a more classic matted Traditional album or a Fine Art album, with the images printed directly onto the pages. Either option comes in different sizes and shapes. If you book the collection with an album, this includes a 10×10” album in either style with 60 photographs. We can show you some examples.

How do we book you as our photographers?

To secure a date, we just need a signed booking form and a non-refundable deposit of £400. Once that’s done, the date goes in the diary!

Can our guests view and order photos?

We add your photos to our online gallery that is passworded and easy to use. They can also order prints via the gallery.

Do we own copyright of the photographs?

Copyright remains with us as the authors of the images but you have a licence to print and share your photographs depending on the collection you purchase. This just means you can’t re-sell the images commercially, or modify them.

Do we need to feed you on the day?

A hot meal or some sandwiches during the wedding breakfast goes down really well and keeps our energy levels high to capture the evening celebrations!

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we have public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

If we’ve missed any burning questions, we’d love to hear from you – you can drop us a line here!
