• Can you hold our wedding date for us?
We really wish we could but I'm afraid we work on a first come first served basis for our award winning wedding photography. We get booked up super quickly and you can secure a date with us by filling in our booking form and making a £500 down payment.
• Can we get a discount for our wedding photography?
Sometimes, depending on the time of year / day of the week. It never hurts to ask!
• What do we do if we'd like to book you to be our wedding photographer?
All you need to secure your booking is your booking form to be filled in and returned to us along with your £500 booking fee. Done!
• When is our balance due for your wedding photography services?
Your balance is due to have cleared in our account 28 days on or before your wedding date.
• Is it possible to have a second shooter?
Of course! Liam prefers to shoot on his own for the consistency of his imagery and storytelling. He covers a lot of ground and moves around a great deal, and quite often a second shooter can easily pop up in the background of images which isn’t ideal. Having said that we completely understand that sometimes you might prefer/it might be necessary to have a second shooter and so we have a number of really talented people that we can call on. A second shooter is charged at £600 for the day.
• How many photographs will we receive for our wedding?
Liam can sometimes shoot up to 3000 images at a wedding, but it really depends on factors like the number of locations used throughout the day, the timings, and the amount of time between the ceremony and meal. Most full day weddings produce over 400 awesome images. We only delete images that are duplicates, very poor light images, or where we might have caught you at a dodgy angle!
• Do you take formal groups as well as creative and documentary wedding photographs?
Absolutely! Liam will always spend around 20 minutes at every wedding shooting a few formal group shots. We like to work super speedily with these so we can get you back to the party as soon as possible!
• When will we be able to see our wedding photographs?
We will aim to create a quick sneak peek of your wedding photographs usually within a few days of your wedding. We'll then continue to work on the full set which will be available around 6 weeks after the big day itself.
• Can we print our own wedding photographs from our usb?
Hell yeah! All we ask is that you don't sell them to O.K magazine ;)
• What does Liam do about eating on our wedding day?
We're more than happy to provide our own food ... but of course, we'd never turn down a delicious meal!
• What if we would like a wedding album?
We love wedding albums and have sourced the very best in the world to showcase your wedding photographs. We have a range of amazing albums which are available to purchase after the wedding.
• Would you recommend a pre-wedding shoot?
A pre-wedding shoot is perfect for anyone who is nervous about being photographed. It's a really informal and fun shoot, which by the end of it you'll have relaxed in front of the camera and we'll have learned best how to photograph you on your wedding day. It's totally up to you though to decide whether this is something you'd like to go for!
