Frequently Asked Questions
How many weddings do you cover per day?
We are fully committed to one wedding per day so that we can be truly focused on the individual needs of each wedding and give the respective bride and groom all our energy for their special day.
Are you flexible in your packages so that you will cover a wedding for longer or shorter periods?
We are very flexible about where and when you want us to be focussing our efforts. We are more than happy to split up so that we capture both the bridal party getting ready and the groom and his friends having a pre wedding drink. We will discuss all preferences with you beforehand and agree an itinterary of where we will be throughout the day so that you do not have to be making decisions on the day itself.
Will you visit our venue before the Wedding Day?
We are familiar with many venues of different styles and sizes across Portsmouth and Hampshire area but we would always make sure that we have visited a venue we did not know before the wedding. We often arrange to have the pre wedding consultation with the bride and groom at the venue so that we can discuss their favourite places as well as ours and so they feel relaxed that we have a plan in place if the weather is bad on the day.
What style of wedding photography do you use?
We believe that if you can enjoy having your wedding photographs taken then the result will be the best you could imagine. That is why we take great care to spend time getting to know our clients and understanding who the really important people at their wedding are. This way you can relax and be truly absorbed in the emotions of the day and we can capture the moments as they unfold without intruding on precious and often private moments. In this way we can shoot in a style often referred to as reportage or lifestyle photography which is relaxed and personal but also takes control of important shots that you may request such as artistic portrait shots of the bride and groom.
Can we have traditional group photographs taken?
The answer to this of course you can. Your wedding is likley to be one of the few times you will have all of your friends and family together in one place and it would be a tragedy to not have records of this captured in a professional way. We will discuss your preferred options for the group photos and where these can best be captured at the pre consultation. We usually recommend that this list has a reasonable limit so that it takes no more than 20 to 30 minutes.
How do we get to see our proofs?
We aim to upload all your images onto our website gallery within 2 weeks of your wedding and usually before this so that you can view online on your honeymoon ( work commitments permitting). You will be given your own password so you can view these images privately first and then offer it to your family and friends so that they can share it with you and buy any images they wish to for themselves.
Once you are ready you can select the images you want to be displayed in your chosen album and we will design it and deliver it to you.
How many photographs will we get?
We will usually upload between 300-500 proof images and depending on the album you choose you will get between 60 and 200 images to put in your album.
Can we order extra prints or purchase all the images on cd?
You can order as many prints as you like and we have a range of print sizes and Canvas prints options as well as lovely smaller albums for parents and guests. We have recently started offering clients the opportunity to purchase all of the images on a high resolution cd which will allow you to print your images at your own leisure as many times as you wish . The digital equivalent of having your negatives for life! Please see optional extras on the package page for details.
