Frequently asked Questions
How long will it take after our wedding to receive our photos?
Can we get all the photos you take even ones you do not edit?
No, only because I usually take about 5 photos of the same thing and only choose the best to edit. There is no point in having photos that may be slightly out of focus or if people are blinking when I have captured the same photo and it is good.
Do I need a 2nd photographer?
It depends if you want to capture EVERY single moment as I cannot be in two places at once obviously ! A great example of the benefit of having a second photographer is at the ceremony - 1 photographer can capture the bride walking down the aisle and the 2nd photographer can capture the look on the grooms face. You also get extra photos of course :)
What is an unplugged ceremony?
An unplugged ceremony is where guests are asked not to take photos with their phones or cameras. You will have their full attention and you wont have to look into a sea of ipads or iphones during your wedding ceremony but only their lovely faces. It also means the photographer will get better photos of the bride walking up the aisle, photos of the guests, and the bride and groom walking back up the aisle. Guests can be caught up in the moment and step out into the aisle in front of the photographer with their iphones and ruin really good shots !
What is the first look?
This is a wonderful moment that I cannot encourage my bride and grooms-to-be enough to do this. Every single person who has done the 1st look has raved about it and were thankful they did it, some friends that I have spoken to that didn't do it on their wedding day regret it - myself included. It is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time by themselves. Usually the groom waits (at a location previously decided by the couple or the photographer) and the bride walks up and taps him on the shoulder. The bride and groom get some time to spend together before their ceremony and some beautiful photos at an intimate setting - and its just them (and the photographer lurking in the background!) My personal experience of walking down the aisle there are so many emotions, nerves, anxiety and I actually can't remember it...many agree with me. With the first look you get that special moment with your other half and then you still get to walk down the aisle, no nerves, anxiety - just excitement and joy. You can take everything in and you still get that 'wow' moment of walking down the aisle to your husband to be.
Do you travel ?
Yes absolutely, I do counter in extra charges for travel and/or accommodation but I love getting around the place for photography !
