Essex Wedding Photographer Questions come along quite often. Here’s my attempt at answering some of the more common questions I get asked.
We’ve just filled out your enquiry form, what happens now?
Firstly thanks! Your enquiry is making its way over to me and my studio management software which syncs up with my calendar to ensure my availability. Once I can confirm if I’m still available or not I’ll be in touch via email.
Do we meet up?
I always like to meet with couples before taking any booking as it’s a great opportunity to share your vision for the day and to also ensure we’re a good fit.
Shall we do confetti?
Yes, just yes. It’s a great shot and one of my favourite images to take.
What time do you stay until?
I don’t set any sort of time constraints or hours for a wedding day. Every wedding is different and I want to ensure I’m there to capture everything I need to tell the full story. I like to arrive early to capture the bridal and grooms preparation all the way up until the dancing in the evening. Some of my favourite images come from late night dance-floor action!
Can you hold a date?
A non-refundable booking retainer of £495.00 is required at the time of booking, together with a signed contract. Dates are reserved only when this booking retainer is paid by bank transfer or credit/debit card.
What comes with your Full Day Package?
I never like to promise a certain number of photos, however, in 2018 the average number of final images I delivered to each couple was well over 500. Fully Edited, High Resolution Images, All Travel and Accommodation in the UK, a Password-Protected Online Gallery, Unlimited downloads for you and all your guests, a mixture of colour and black & white images and perfectly sized images to share on social media.
Are you insured?
Yes, by the UK’s leading photographic insurance company Policybee. I have Public Liability insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance for every eventuality.
Is there a contract?
Yes, I use the leading Studio Management Software from which you’re given your own portal. From here you can make payments, sign the contract, answer questionnaires that I send and add files and photos. Everything in one easy place.
Do you take formal/family group photos?
Yes, in fact I recommend you take a few. You may not be that keen on taking them at the time but you’ll be glad afterwards, and your family certainly will. To ensure the smooth running of this I ask for a list of thew images you want in one of the questionnaires I send out nearer the wedding.
Do you also do videography?
No, but I recommend some of the best there are over at my ‘Recommended Wedding Suppliers’ page.
Do you take Credit/Debit Cards
Yes, payment can be made via Credit & Debit Cards or via Direct Bank Transfer
Are you good with Photoshop?
