About 50+ edited images per hour. These will be a combination of colour and black and white in a JPEG format. Although there will be many more taken, some won’t be worth sharing. I want you to love every image you receive!
I do NOT do entire group shots at weddings. I will do small family group shots if this is something you want documented.
Can I have a copy of the original images?
Short answer, no. I shoot raw not jpeg. I take lots of photos to make a great photo! Most are test shots and never make the cut. I don't just turn up and start shooting every detail for what it is. The photos I select are the very best images from your day. The time is spent on these images to edit them so you get a beautiful product. During the shoot I make real-life adjustments. As a professional I am employed to get rid of the test shots so you’re presented with a collection of images you can immediately share and print. It’s much the same as your wedding cake. The final product is the cake. The baker doesn't hand over the used flour packets or empty egg shells.
When will we receive our photos?
You will receive your images via an online Gallery within 4-8 weeks after your wedding date. In addition to this some packages come with a USB. Delivery time is about 2 weeks for family/couple sessions.
How do we book you?
To confirm your wedding booking I require a signed contract and a 10% non refundable deposit. The remaining balance is due the Monday before your wedding.
You work alone, what happens if you get really sick or injured?
True I do work alone, because my style is documentary and I work hard to capture those candid moments I feel it's important for me to blend in and be seen as another guest. For me that's a minimal footprint. Even if I did work with an assistant they would probably be someone new who is looking to gain experience so I wouldn't feel comfortable asking them to document your wedding day anyway. If the inevitable happened I would work really hard to find a replacement and I would start with my cool ass photographer mates.
Are you insured?
Will our photos be watermarked and can we print them?
Your photos will be clean of watermarks and most definitely you can print them. You can order prints through me or arrange printing yourself. I encourage you to print your photos and suggest that you use a professional print lab rather than a department store. Quality prints last for generations, whereas technology changes and can fail. As systems evolve USBs will most likely become outdated and unreadable.
Do you store our photos long-term?
You are responsible for the safekeeping and storage of your photos. I store them for 12 months after your event then I delete all files.
