HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?
I have been shooting weddings since 1999. Back then I was shooting film. I used to use 2-3 rolls of film per wedding, around 100 images if you do the math. Patience is a virtue.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE WE CAN SEE OUR PICTURES?
All of your images will usually be online within 3 weeks, but there will be a sneak preview on my blog about a week after the wedding.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am based in Basildon, but I am available for weddings all over Essex, Greater London, and beyond. If your wedding is further than that I’ll charge extra for travel expenses.
DO YOU YOU HAVE AN ASSISTANT?
Normally I work alone, but if you request a second shooter I can arrange that for you. I will be the ‘lead photographer’.
DO YOU STILL DO THE TRADITIONAL GROUP SHOTS?
I am happy to do a few traditional groups, this will take 20 – 30 minutes depending on the size of the groups.
CAN WE PRINT FROM OUR GALLERY?
Yes, please do! Please don’t use them for commercial purposes without my consent (you can’t sell them), and if you’re sending them on to your hairdresser/magazines, just let me know.
CAN MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY BUY PICTURES?
Yes, you will have an online gallery with a password which you can give out to your friends and family.
DO YOU REQUIRE A MEAL AT OUR RECEPTION?
No, I am quite happy to bring my own food and sneak off at the ideal times.
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT?
Once the 1/4 booking fee and a signed copy of the contract have been received I’m completely yours for the day, with the remaining balance due 14 days prior to the wedding.
DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM
I used to shoot film, but now I shoot digital.
I DON’T LIVE NEAR YOU, CAN WE SKYPE/WHATSUP?
Yes! Although it’s a bit nerve-wracking chatting over the net, it’s a great alternative if you live in Rome!
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use Canon DSLRs (mainly 5D MkIIIs), and a range of L lenses (including 16-35 mm 2.8, 24-70 mm 2.8, 700-200 mm 2.8)
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes, I am covered for Professional Indemnity and Public Liability.
DID YOU STUDY PHOTOGRAPHY AT UNI?
No, I am a self-taught photography geek.
DO YOU VIDEO WEDDINGS TOO?
Yes, we do. Check out our latest Wedding Film. We’ve been filming weddings in Europe, Caribean Islands, and the United States and looking forward to filming your wedding next.
DO YOU SHOOT AERIAL IMAGES AND VIDEOS?
At this stage, we don’t have any experience with aerial photography/videography to offer as a service. If you’re looking for an aerial photographer/videographer, check out our friends over at RMC AV LTD.
