Frequent Questions

It’s very natural for people to have a lot of questions when getting married as it’s not something you do every day. If you’ve got a burning question that isn’t answered here – no worries – drop me a line. I’m more than happy to help with no sales pitch, I promise.

As early as you know your date!  Especially if you are planning a wedding for March/April/May or September/October/November as these dates book out.  We take bookings as far as 2 years in advance. Around 1 year in advance is when most people book, 6 months or less is getting a little risky but still give it a shot.

I love it when people ask this and the answer is a resounding YES. I specialise in drawing out natural emotion, and I have a few tricks for cracking those macho-men or shy-girls that hate posing for photos (it’s very much a less-is-more approach). This is why we include a free engagement shoot with our photo packages – It gets us all relaxed with each other.

Me (Kevin). I’ve actually been using Photoshop since 2000. I now use Lightroom most of the time and Photoshop for those tricky edits. By doing the editing myself, I can control the image from start to finish. I know the capabilities and limitations of my gear and software right the way through, which means I have more confidence even in tricky situations.

This depends on the time of year, how many other weddings I am covering etc. I share a sneak peek on social media within a few days and then once all the images are edited (usually 7-10 days) I’ll upload your online gallery. From there you pick your faves and then I design your album which takes approx 2 weeks at the printers. 

The final image count will depend on the package you select – the general rule: the longer we shoot, the more photos you receive. I choose the images you receive and I don’t limit the amount to any predetermined number – nor do I make you purchase more for an extra fee. You receive all the images from the day that turned out how I anticipated and all of those are edited to be their best. Remember – it’s best to have quality not quantity.

Images that are not included are just the ‘duds’. They’re either double-ups (I can get trigger happy sometimes) or were technically poor images (too dark, too light, someone pulling an unflattering face, eyes closed, food in teeth etc, etc, etc). These shots aren’t worth viewing and are deleted from my computer so they don’t take up disc space.

In the final album you’ll receive a mix of colour and black and white images. It’s about 90/10 colour to b&w by my estimates. Sometimes images just look better in b&w and these are selected at my discretion..

In order to secure our services for your day, a non-refundable retainer fee of 25% of total price (deducted from the chosen package) secures your date. We take no other bookings that day so we can completely concentrate on you. This is to be paid when you sign your contract.
