Questions to ask a Wedding Photographer
Here I answer the most asked questions from couples looking to book a wedding photographer. They come up time and time again so I thought I’d give you the rundown right here. So let’s get started!
What is your style of photography?
I’m a creative photographer and I like to record weddings in the way that is authentic and true. I achieve this by capturing all of those special moments that happen in the blink of an eye. I am there to capture the true emotion of the day. The only time that I intervene is for the Bride and Groom shots. This will help you to just enjoy the magic of your day with your family and friends.
Do you do group photos?
Of course! We’ll take some of your close family photo’s and the Bridal Party. I don’t however work from a huge long list shouting names for an hour! I don’t think that you want to do that either on your wedding day!
What does your coverage include?
Me as your photographer for the day (plus my second photographer), from 2 hours before the ceremony time up until the first dance at 8pm. We will generally be finished for 8.30/9pm.
Do we need to feed you?
Yes please! Working hard for you takes up a lot of energy and a hot meal is very much essential and very much appreciated and a desert will give us the sugar boost that is very much needed by that point! Plus it means that we don’t need to leave the venue to get food so I’ll be around incase we need to capture something fun happening! Usually you will discuss this with your caterer.
When will we get to see our images?
I aim to give you a couple of sneak peeks within a few days of your wedding but the real work happens over the next 4-6 weeks, where I artistically master your images to the highest degree possible.
How many images will we receive?
My goal is to tell your story, the way you want to remember it, beautifully, fully and completely. With this in mind, you will receive approximately 500+ images depending on the nature of your day. You will be able to download your images directly from the website, giving you instant access to them as soon as they are ready.
Can you hold a date for us?
I often get enquiries for the same date so whoever pays the booking fee first gets the date. CONTACT me today to book your date.
What happens if you’re ill on the day?
Only a very serious illness would keep me from being there, but if it were to happen, I would do my very best to sort out a replacement photographer for you. I have a large network of photographers that I know who I could call on should the need arise.
So what happens now?
If you think you want to book me for your wedding but you want to meet me first, then just get in touch and we can arrange a meeting. I usually meet with couples at my home in Trentham, Staffordshire but obviously at the moment we aren’t able to do that so I’ve been having Zoom meetings, or calls over the phone or FaceTime. We can have a long chat about all your plans for your day and what you would want from me.
