FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you based?
How many photographs will we receive?
How long do you stay on the day?
I’ve seen some photos that I like on Pinterest. Can you recreate them?
I’ll look and consider the style you like, but I’m not one for recreating other people’s work down to a T. I’ll use Pinterest as a guide, but I don’t want to recreate a fashion shoot! Hopefully, you’ll like my work enough to trust that I’ll get the shots you like! Take a look at my blog posts to see whether you really like my work.
Do you retouch your photos?
What happens if you’re ill or can’t make it on the day?
What happens if your camera breaks?
Although it’s only happened once before (again, touch wood), I do have three top of the range cameras that I carry everywhere. So if one fails, I’ve always got backup
What happens if it rains?
Can I give you a list of group shots that I want?
Can we buy an album?
What happens if you die?
I was asked this question twice in one weekend! Apparently, this has happened to other couples and they have been left without any wedding photos. Let’s pretend a herd of cows trampled on me whilst walking the dogs and I’m pronounced dead at the scene. Once you’ve had chance to grieve for me, you’ll be wanting to know how to get hold of your wedding photos that I was in the process of editing before the unfortunate incident. All of your memory cards will be kept in a pot underneath my computer screen with your name clearly written on. Just come and knock on the door (providing the whole family hasn’t been wiped out) and ask for your pot. You can then take all the raw images off to another professional to edit. If you need to get in touch with anyone, my family have a different surname to me which may cause problems if you’re searching the web for an alive relative. My youngest daughter Alice Mcmullen will be your best point of contact, you can find her via social media @alicemaewho. Good luck!
Can we print the photos ourselves?
Yes! You can access your photos online and either download them and use any online or local high street printing shop.
You can also use the shop that comes with your online gallery, these prints are professional quality on archival papers. I recommend this method for the best quality and colours.
Your friends and family can also download and print the photos via the online gallery.
Do you backup the photos?
Yes, I wouldn’t dare not to! Your photos will also stay on the online gallery for one year after the wedding so please download them all. I do still keep backups myself.
Do we need to feed you on the day?
Well, if you do – I’m not going to grumble. But just to warn you, I am a gluten-free, dairy-free vegetarian so you may not want to. On more of a serious note, I’m happy to order food at the venue if they offer it. If not, I can bring my own packed lunch.
Are you insured?
Yes, I have public liability insurance with Photosheild upto the value of £5,000,000
When will we receive our photos?
There is a four week turnaround after the wedding day.
When do we pay?
The £300 booking fee is due at the time of booking and the remainder is due four weeks before your wedding day.
Can we pay in installments?
Do you use a second photographer?
I can provide one if you have a particularly large wedding or if you want full coverage of the groom prep. However, if you choose a place where you can both get ready in close proximity, I can cover both the bride and groom by going from A to B myself. We can chat when we meet and I’ll decide if it would be beneficial for a second photographer to come along to get some extra shots at different vantage points.
Do you do engagement shoots?
How do we book?
Before I take bookings, I love to meet my clients! Preferably I’d like to meet you face to face and get to know you, but if you live too far away, we can always Zoom. After our meeting, I like to give you time to go away and think about it. It is a big decision after all. If you’re sure that you want to book me, firstly thank you, and secondly, I’ll send you an online form, there’s a contract to sign and a £300 booking fee which will secure your date.
MY DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE & APPROACH
I believe that you must have a good relationship with your wedding photographer in order to get the photographs that you want. This is why I thought I’d write this section, to tell you about my style of photography and how I
Now you know my style and what I aim to achieve, I want you to know a bit about my approach. Going full circle, the first stage in my creative process is to build a relationship with my client. I want us to understand one another. This way, you’ll be comfortable being around me on your big day, and I’ll know exactly what you’re looking for and what is important to you. The next stage in my process takes place on the big day: working closely with people. I won’t be a shady figure in black standing at the back of the room with a humongous lens. I’ll be in with the crowd, I’ll be up close and personal. That’s how I can capture the important things that I’d otherwise miss. This is why it’s important that you’re comfortable with my presence! Despite this method of shooting, I don’t stick out like a sore thumb. I blend in. A lot of people just think I’m just a guest with a big camera. At all times I’m friendly. I smile. I wink. I sit at the old ladies table next to your Grandma and I follow the kids playing outside. I’m there to capture the whole day, everyone’s day. I follow the light, love and laughter. Wherever it is, I’m not far behind.
