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.
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.
Yes - Unlike many other Nottingham photographers who charge extra for an Album, all our Packages (except the Midweek Package ) can 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.
I'm based in Nottingham and typically cover Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and the East Midlands. However I am more than happy to travel, so just give me a call and we can quickly agree any travel costs if necessary.
Not a problem - Sometimes the timings of your special may benefit from an extra hour(s) and can be added to any package if you require. Each additional hour is charged at just £100 an hour.
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.
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 final balance is not payable until you receive your photographs AFTER your wedding.
Example: Bronze Package - Total price £449
a) £99 deposit to secure the booking (leaving £350 outstanding)
b) 75% ~ £270 due 28 days before your wedding
c) £80 final payment on delivery of your wedding album or "Heart USB"
Yes - During the editing stage, we will produce images in black & white or misty surround etc where we feel they are appropriate. These will normally go on your selection slideshow alongside the full colour version. You can then decide which you prefer.
This will vary with each wedding, but for example, a Bronze Package could easily result in 250+ photos for you to choose from from your album.
Whereas a Silver Package (8 hour attendance) will normally produce a selection slideshow containing upwards of 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!
We will certainly try - no problem. Do however note that your "Style" of wedding, venue type, time of year, lighting etc. will have a large bearing on the final look of your photographs.
P.S. Unlike some photographers, ALL the photographs you see on this website were taken by us during REAL weddings, not stylised photo shoots incorporating models, special locations and lighting!
Many photographers will put an upper limit on the number of photos they will provide; but we will provide you with as many usable photos as possible.
However, because a wedding is a "real-time" event, there are inevitably 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.
We only supply edited, high resolution photographs to you; either as prints in your wedding album and / or digital images on DVD or USB. This is no different to a musician or author only wanting you to experience their finished work, not their work in progress.
I love food as much as the next guy and if I am with you all day then a meal would be certainly appreciated, but it is really not essential. I'm there to work not eat your food!
Yes, Parent Wedding Albums are available for just £115 each. The front cover will say either "Our Sons Wedding" or "Our Daughters Wedding". Our GOLD package includes these two albums in the price.
I'm sure you don't really care! but I am actually a Canon Professional, using Full-Frame camera bodies (5d3 and 5d4) plus top of the range Canon "L" series Lens.
Yes, we have a totally FREE "Planning a Wedding Guide" complete with useful hints, tips and advice when "Planning a Wedding" - Click Here. The information in this guide should help you plan a fantastic day of celebration and we would love to be there to tell the story!
