Here is a selection of questions to help you with a few basic queries
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 Coverage from £550
Storybook Album Coverage from £1300
Engagement sessions : Are availabe Mon-Friday only and take place withina 10 mile radius off the studio ( further ditances or weekends at dicretion will incur a charge) -
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.
Do you have a second shooter : Generally the answer is no as all the work you are viewing is my own and then you know exactly what you will get, so i have never seen the need for too many cameras ( a second shooter can be added for £250)
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 centrepiece 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 days after the wedding day. This is for you and your friends and family to view and make any selected purchases.
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.
