QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
can you hold our wedding date for us?
We’re really sorry but we are unable to hold dates as we get booked up so quickly!
what do we do if we'd like to book you?
All we need to secure your booking is your booking form to be filled in and returned to us along with your £500 booking fee. Done!
if liam has a long way to travel and requires overnight accommodation who will pay your expenses?
We will cover all travelling and overnight expenses within 100 miles of us (£200 if over this distance). If you are getting married abroad please pop an email through to us as we have a dedicated destination wedding brochure.
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 £350 for the day.
when is our balance due?
Your balance is due to have cleared in our account 28 days on or before your wedding date.
how may photographs will liam take and how many will we see??
We have no fixed number. Liam will often take 1500+ photographs, but it really is dependent on lots of factors like the number of locations throughout the day, the timings of your day and the amount of time between the ceremony and wedding breakfast Most weddings produce over 500 fantastic images. We only delete images that are duplicates, very poor light images, or where we might have caught you at an unflattering angle.
do you take formal groups as well as candid photos?
Yes, and as quickly as possible! We like to limit group shots to a maximum of 20 minutes and work to a pre-arranged list. We’ll also ask an usher to help round up the necessary guests so that we can get everything sorted as quickly as possible for you.
what does liam do about eating on the day?
We’re more than happy to provide our own food ... but of course, we’d never turn down a delicious meal!
when will we be able to see our photographs?
Your highlights will be ready within 6 weeks of your big day. We’ll then uplaod your full set of images to your personal private gallery on our website for yourselves, family and friends to view. You’ll also receive a hard copy of your images on USB through the post.
can we print from our usb?
Most certainly! All we ask is that you only print images for your own personal use, that you don’t use them for any commercial purposes, and that you don’t make any copies (other than a back up copy for yourselves).
would you recommend a pre-wedding shoot?
It’s perfect for anyone who is nervous about being photographed, as once you’ve seen the results from the shoot you’ll have no fears or worries left about the formal photography part of your wedding day. It’s a really informal and fun shoot which by the end of it you will have relaxed in front of the camera and we’ll have learned how best 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!
do you have insurance?
Yes. We have public liability and professional indemnity insurances. We can provide copies of these certificates if required.
what happens if you are ill?
To date in our fifteen years of shooting weddings we have never missed a wedding. However, in the very unlikely situation that this should happen we have a network of incredibly talented photographers that we could call on to stand in for us. And rest assured your wedding photographs would still be edited by Bee in our signature style!
