W E D D I N G INFO
Wedding info and FAQ’s
I shoot in a creative documentary style, which means that most of the photographs are captured as they happen, these are real and spontaneous moments- no posing, and no staring at the camera required. I’m all about great vibe, fun and capturing emotive moments in a relaxed manner. I know how much planning goes into a wedding, so I make sure that all those little things that make your day so unique are photographed creatively too. When photographing a wedding I am always looking to capture the best of the day and create a story that looks even better from what you remember.
HOW I WORK
I’ll start the day from your morning prep and follow your timeline as the day unfolds up until the first three dances at night. While I never like posing anything I am always very happy to spend a little time with the couple somewhere pretty and away from the crowd. These photos are always romantic and very relaxed. Or they could be totally crazy, with a trip to the beach or hopping a fence or two to get to a nearby field. I just let you and your partner interact with one another ( with very little guidance given when needed) and capture the results! I keep it simple and the photos are always beautiful!
If you’re interested in booking and would like to check my availability, discuss your special day in depth and request my detailed pricing guide, please head over to my CONTACT form. My collections are not fixed and if you’d like to tweak a thing or two – that won’t be a problem at all. Hourly rates for evening receptions and romantic elopements are available too.
Q: WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
A: I’m based in Perthshire, Scotland, but I am available for weddings all over Scotland, and sometimes beyond. For full-day weddings, travel within 100 miles return is included, but if your wedding is further than that additional charges may apply depending on travel distance, accommodation expenses, etc.
Q: WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU NEED FROM ME BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?
A: At first, I will e-mail you my booking form to get some basic info. And that’s how we get the ball rolling! Another questionnaire is sent to you, four weeks prior to the wedding (for the finer details).
Q: IS HAVING TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS BETTER THAN HAVING JUST ONE?
A: There are a few positives if there is two of us. We can be in different places at the same time, photographing your day from different perspectives and capturing unique moments simultaneously.
Q: WHO ARE YOUR SECOND SHOOTERS?
A: My second shooters are other wedding photographers with similar style to mine, who I frequently work with and are available to cover your date.
Q: HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER?
A: I select the best photographs from the day, edit them individually in my signature style, create a photo-story and ensure that each photo that goes into your album is the best it can be and tells a story. I don’t keep photos for myself. If the photo is good – it gets included in the final batch! For my full-day weddings, the minimum you will get is 600+ photographs.
Q: HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
A: With my full-day collections you’ll get your high res ready to print files on USB, Wooden USB box + selection of prints and in addition all files will be uploaded to a private online gallery, with options to view, share and download.
Q: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY WEDDING PHOTOS?
A: My aim is to hit the 4 week mark in the Spring and Winter, but during peak season (May – October), my turnaround time is usually between 4-6 weeks.
Q: CAN I PURCHASE ALBUMS AFTER THE WEDDING DAY?
A: Of course.
Q: WE DON’T LIKE HAVING OUR PICTURE TAKEN, WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT THIS?
A: Please don’t worry about this. Very few people like their picture taken, but my job is to make you feel at ease in front of the camera and remember, I’m only trying to take the most flattering photos of you, the ones that you’ll be proud to show to your friends and family!
Q: DO I HAVE TO ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
A: The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through different printing vendors, so I encourage clients to let me help with prints or order my Kraft print boxes.
Q: HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?
A: A deposit payment of £300 and signed contract is required in order to get your date on my calendar. The remaining balance of your wedding day collection is due 30 days prior to your wedding.
Q: DO WE HAVE TO MEET WITH YOU AT THE VENUE PRIOR TO WEDDING TO DISCUSS THE LOCATION AND LIGHTING
A: It’s not necessary. In general, I prefer the element of surprise as it is good for creativity. Where I take photos on the day is also light and weather dependent.
Q: DO YOU HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE?
