Frequently Asked Questions
Do you photograph more than one wedding per day?
Never, I only take one booking per day.
Will it be you that photographs our wedding?
Yes, I photograph all my own weddings; I don't send assistants out in my place.
Do you travel to photograph weddings?
Yes. I am based in Cheltenham so cover The Cotswolds, Gloucester, Bath, Bristol, Oxford, Cardiff, Birmingham, etc. Travel within a 50-mile radius of Cheltenham is included in all my packages. If your wedding is further away I charge for additional mileage at a reasonable rate. I sometimes ask for B&B accommodation to be provided prior to the wedding day or on the wedding night if it is a long distance to travel. If you are getting married abroad I can give you a quote.
Will you shoot film or digital?
I shoot digitally as it's much more versatile than film and I get great print results. You will be provided with hi-res images for prints and low-res images for emailing to your friends.
Do you bring spare equipment?
Yes. I always carry spare camera bodies, lenses and flashes just in case!
How many pictures will I get?
Every wedding is different and it depends which package you have chosen.
Do you take group shots?
Yes, but I try to keep them to a minimum for everyone's benefit. I ask the bride and groom to provide me with a list of group shots and whom they want in each shot. I then ask a family member or friend to help me collect people together for the shots. The group pictures take less time if they are organised and everyone can get on and enjoy themselves.
How much do you charge for re-prints and enlargements?
I give you all the images on DVD to keep so you can do all your printing yourself if you prefer. I get all my prints made at a professional photographic printers and prices can be found in Album and Prints.
Will my pictures be colour or black and white?
I usually provide all shots in colour but if you have a preference for one or the other I can easily accommodate that choice. All images can be converted to black and white or sepia before printing.
