Here is a selection of questions to help you with a few basic queries
What is a sitting fee : Photographers charge a sitting fee to partially cover the costs involved with any shoot, this fee goes towards the skills of the photographer and their time to create, digitally image the photographs and provide you with a second hour to view the photographs, as well as the equipment, rent, heat & light we use etc.
How do I view the photographs : The preferred option is us to enlarge the images and project them in our cinema room. This way I can help clients design individual pieces that will compliment and enhance their home.
Can I view them online : Yes - however this does have a chargeable fee of £30
Why Simon Clubb Photography ? : I have made photographic art my lifetime career, and I believe I can create something special for you to treasure and display in your home with pride for MANY years to come.
How many weddings do you cover in a day : I only cover one wedding per day, this is the biggest event of your life to date, so we give it the due care and planning it requires.
Booking : Once you have paid our booking fee (£250) - the date is booked exclusively, between that date and the wedding I will invite you for an engagement shoot, this will help you relax in front of the camera ( and you get to know each others personalities and sense of humour , so you are comfortable on the big day ).
Payments for the wedding are made in stages prior to the wedding day.
How would you describe your style : Style and approach is unique to every photographer, personally I love to have lots of laughs with my wedding parties to ensure that the day is remembered as fun, that said we still have to produce the work you desire. My style is a mix of directed and candid - I believe a mix of both will ensure you get exactly what you need.
How much will it cost : Each wedding is tailored made to suit the style and requirements for each and every couple -
Intimate wedding coverages start from £550
Storybook Album Coverages start from £1700
How many images will you shoot : The answer to this is more than enough, it is more about quality than quantity as I always shoot to get the best from your day.
How long with you attend our wedding : I am booked for your entire day - my standard coverage starts from prior to the ceremony preparations until your line up - however I am available by request to cover morning preparations, speeches, dancing and fireworks etc.
Do you Travel : Yes, I am based in Aberdeen but travel across the UK and Internationally by request.
What about my album : I only use the best album manufacturer in the world. Each album is personally designed by me, utilising your choices and my expertise we will design you the perfect album. Each album is proofed for you before printing to ensure you have the optimum result. I offer a range of covers, album styles, paper styles that are second to none in terms of custom made albums. I design your album as a centre-piece to be shown in your home for many years as well as a legacy of this momentous day.
Can I purchase the rights to the photographs on USB : YES you can - although we hold copyright at all times - we can sell you a license to print as many images as you wish.
Why do we charge this - our living as photographers is made from selling images not from the fees we charge to create them.
How long will I have to wait to see my images : My goal is to have each and every wedding online within 7-10 days after the wedding day. This is for you and your friends and family to view and make any selected purchases. Your preview album (yours to keep) will be ready within a further 7 days.
Insurance : As a full time qualified professional photographer with the MASTER PHOTOGRAPHERS ASSOCIATION, I am fully insured for professional indemnity and public liability. Please note most part time photographers do not carry insurance and will NOT be covered by your own wedding insurance in the event of cancellation or equipment failure. WHY DO YOU NEED INSURANCE : Quite simply is is a benefit to you as an extra piece of reassurance.
