Frequently Asked Questions
We hope you like our great packages and stunning photos; but to help in your decision making process please find below some frequently asked questions by wedding couples.
How do you operate on the day?
I've been a guest at weddings where instead of it being the happy couples special day, it almost became the photographers big day!!
My philosophy is simple - this is your day, not mine. We will discuss exactly what you want from your photography. Apart from any formal group shots of family and friends that YOU want, my style is very much of blending into the background, getting those lovely natural looking, candid shots as the day unfolds.
Many people have commented that they had forgotten that I was there, but the results were just brilliant.
Do we get an Album containing the photographs of our choice?
Yes - Unlike many other Nottingham photographers who charge extra for an Album, all our Packages (except Package 1) include an album in the price - All the albums are UK made, book-bound Wedding Albums, containing your choice of professionally printed photographs, all individually mounted.
What area do you cover?
We are based in Nottingham and mainly cover Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and the East Midlands. If you are further away just give us a call and we can quickly agree any travel costs if necessary.
Can we book an extra hours coverage?
Not a problem - extra hours can be added to any package if you require. Each additional hour is charged at just £75 an hour.
How do we make a booking?
To secure the date and book us for your special day, then we just require a £99 deposit. This payment can be made in cash, bank transfer or by cheque. Contact us for more details.
How do the payments work?
Unlike some companies, we do not require large deposits or payment in full up front.
Just £99 deposit secures your booking, we then require 75% of the outstanding balance four weeks before your wedding, the remaining balance is not payable until you receive your wedding album or DVD package after the wedding.
Example: Package 2 - Total price £499
a) £99 deposit to secure the booking (leaving £400 outstanding)
b) 75% ~ £300 due 28 days before your wedding
c) £100 final payment on delivery of your wedding album
Can we have some Black & White, Misty Border, Selective Colour photos?
Yes - During the editing stage, we will produce images in black & white or misty surround etc where we feel they are appropriate. These will go on your selection DVD normally with the full colour version. You can then decide which you prefer.
Can you print from the "Slideshow DVD" that comes with all the packages?
No - this DVD is a movie file set to music and not individual image files. It is intended to be used to help you choose the photos that you would like printed for your album. You do of course keep the DVD, so can watch ALL your wedding photos on your TV or computer at any time.
A printable DVD of all the images IS included with Package 1, Package 3 / Gold as standard and is available as an optional extra with Package 2. This printable DVD contains all your photographs as separate image files, in high resolution, "jpeg" format. These can be re-sized, copied & printed to your hearts content and come with a Copyright Release letter.
How many photographs will we receive?
This will vary with each wedding, but for example, a Package 2 booking could easily result in 200+ photos on your slide show selection DVD.
Whereas a Package 3 booking (8 hour attendance) will normally produce a slide show selection DVD containing upwards of 375~400+ to choose from.
Unlike some photographers, we do not put an upper limit on the number of photographs presented to the client; so the happier you and your guests are to be in-front of the camera, the more photos you will get!
Will we receive every photograph taken on the day?
Unlike many photographers who put an upper limit on the number of photos they provide, we will provide you with as many usable photos as possible.
However, because a wedding is a "real-time" event, there are some photographs that simply don't work for a variety of reasons, e.g. someone walks in between the camera and the subject just as the shutter is released!
In addition, multiple shots of some scenes maybe taken (e.g. multiple shots of the same wedding group), in these cases we may only present the best one to you to avoid unnecessary duplication.
Rest assured you will receive as many photographs as possible, but this will not be every single photograph taken on the day.
Can we have the unedited photographs?
We only supply edited, high resolution photographs to you; either as prints in your wedding album and / or digital images on DVD. This is no different to a musician or author only wanting you to experience their finished work, not their work in progress.
Do you require us to provide you with a meal?
No - I do not expect you to provide me with food - I'm there to work!
Can you supply Parent Albums?
Yes, Parent Wedding Albums are available for just £115. The front cover will say either "Our Sons Wedding" or "Our Daughters Wedding". Package 3 GOLD includes these two albums in the package as standard.
We're just starting the planning process - do you have any practical advice?
Yes, we have a page on our web site devoted to "Planning a Wedding" - Click Here to take you to the practical wedding advice page.
