"So how do we go about booking you if your available on our date?"
You need to pay a non-refundable deposit of £200 to secure a date with us. Preferably via bank transfer. We then send you a receipt and our contract, which you fill out with your basic details and return to us via post or email. Then that is the date booked and we are ready to rock your big day!
"When do you require the final payment to be made?"
We ask for the remaining balance to be paid at the latest a fortnight before your wedding. You can pay in instalments or in one lump sum. Whichever suits you better.
"Whats your shooting style like? Will you pose us a lot?"
Our shooting is style is very relaxed and informal..we prefer more candid/ photojournalistic shots and don't like to be in your face all day or keeping you away from the wedding action too long. We do offer some posing suggestions here and there when we feel its appropriate.
A lot of our past clients have commented on how they barely noticed we were there for a lot of their day, in a positive way and appreciated it.
"Can you come to both the brides & grooms house/locations in the morning?"
Yes we are happy to capture both of you if time and distance allows.
We usually recommend an hour per house or location for preparation shots.
"Can you split up and go to separate locations?"
We prefer to work together and usually travel in 1 car but we can arrange to split up for a while if you want us to cover two locations simultaneously.
"Do you need a list of group/family shots we want taken?"
You can give us a list but we have found it helpful to give your list to a best man or someone in the bridal party who knows your guests better than us. It speeds up the gathering process for everyone.
"How long do you spend on our newlywed & bridal party shots?"
We don't like to keep you away from your guests too long so we take the bridal party shots and then like to go for a little walk with just the 2 of you around your location and grab some relaxed and romantic shots of you both. This usually only take 30 mins to 1 hour max.
"Can we get our newlywed and/or bridal party shots taken at a location other than our wedding venue?"
Yes of course, you just need to leave extra time to get between locations.
"Do you only do cover weddings in Northern Ireland?"
Nope, we are happy to travel.. we often work in the Republic of Ireland too and occasionally travel to the mainland UK. It is just worth noting we add on an extra travel charge for weddings much further than 50 miles from Belfast.
If you have any other questions, please get in touch!
Just so you have a well informed heads up before you contact us, here is all the important info on our services and commonly asked (wedding related) questions and answers.
Our wedding package is £1260 as standard.
It includes full day coverage by 2 photographers.
We will cover your day within the parameters of preparation shots in the morning up to 3-4 songs after you first dance in the evening.
On average you receive 500-600 final edited images in a custom wooden usb package with 30 small prints. We also upload them to a private online gallery for you to share with friends and family so they can download their favourites free of charge.
We send you up to 10 edited images as a preview a couple of days after the wedding. (We also like to share these on our facebook if you give us permission to show you off.)
Our editing style is eclectic and artistic and we give you a good mix of images and styles. Some simple, some arty, some black and white. Very often our edits are inspired by the colours and moods of your day.
Depending on the time of year and how busy we are it can take between 6 weeks to 20 weeks for your final images to be carefully edited and supplied to you. We will keep you informed of your eta and if there are any delays.
An engagement/pre-wedding shoot is complimentary with our wedding packages. It is also optional.
If you just want us to do a engagement shoot but not your wedding it falls under our portrait shoot package.(see below)
Please note: We are based in Dundonald, Northern Ireland so an extra travel charge may be required if your wedding location is over 50 miles from Belfast.
We offer album design as an extra service. This can be paid for and organised after the wedding.
Our hardback albums are printed on lustre photographic paper with lay flat binding.
It costs £260 pounds for our largest album. Its has 90 pages and we recommend selecting 150 images to get best out of the design.
(This price includes £100 for design time.)
You can then also order a smaller version of your album for £85 each. Good for giving to the parents!
We don't just do weddings. We also love doing portraits of lovely folks.
Whether it be a family shoot, a loved up couple or newborn shoot.
The standard cost is £150 for a 1 hour portrait shoot either at your house or at a agreed location.
Portrait shoots are to be paid in full at the time of booking. (Travel charges may apply depending on distance from Belfast.)
You receive on average 50 final edited images via a private online gallery and can download them directly and print away to your hearts content.
