Choosing your wedding photographer is a significant investment, both in financial terms and with regards to the preservation of your memories. As such, it’s so important that you learn as much information about your wedding photographer as possible. Feel free to ask questions that are not covered on their websites. Look through wedding galleries, engagement galleries and blogs. Email your wedding photographer and build a rapport. You may also want to check out reviews and testimonials. Whether you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Essex or one from further afield, you’ll find the answers to many relevant questions below in our FAQ. If you’re a photographer you can find more specific information about us on our mentoring page.
We currently live in a town called Chigwell, which is in Essex. Just on the outskirts of London and sitting in Zone 4 of the London central line. However, we cover weddings all over the country.
Most definitely! Up to the eyeballs! We have both indemnity and liability cover, as well as equipment insurance.
Of course. We work with lots of couples who for whatever reason don’t want (or can’t have) their photos published online. This is something we totally respect and we always ask you to confirm in advance what you’re happy with. As it stands, we only blog around ⅓ of our weddings each year and only around 25% go forward for publication on external blogs/magazines anyway.
Our standard “base” wedding package is fully inclusive. There are no additional costs for weddings taking place in England or Wales. Weddings in Scotland and Ireland are priced a little higher to account for increased travel expenditure and the need for a couple of nights of accommodation. Destination wedding coverage is quoted on an individual basis and will be charged at our base rate + expenses.
If you’d like them. We recommend no more than 10 group photos though so there’s still time for all that lovely natural stuff you see in our portfolio.
Indeed, we do! We offer a range of add ons including albums, engagement shoots, additional hours and more. If there’s anything in particular that you’re interested in please just ask. Our albums are all professional standard albums, handmade in the UK and built to last a lifetime.
We give you full printing rights with your wedding photos. This means that you’re able to print, copy and share your images on an unlimited basis, yippee! The only thing you can’t do really is use the images commercially.
This isn’t something we offer typically, but it’s always worth popping us an email just incase. On rare occasions, we may be able to accommodate short coverage bookings or bookings with just one of us shooting. This would usually be for last minute or weekday weddings, weddings taking place very locally or if we’d be providing emergency cover when your previous photographer has fallen through.
Workshops aren’t something that we currently offer, but we are more than happy to discuss training and mentoring with you if it’s something you’re interested in. Mentoring is for photographers and creative professionals with an interest in wedding photography. Training is one on one and focuses on a specific area of your work and skill set, for example, using off camera flash. You can find more information on our mentoring page. Or feel free to swing us an email. Our email address is email@example.com
Canon 5D MK III bodies and a series of Sigma art/ Canon prime lenses are our go to gear. We also have a couple of Canon zooms in the kit bag, but we prefer a prime!
As we work as a duo already, we’re pretty much always covered for the above. It’s always great to know you’re out there though, so if you’re local feel free to drop us a line.
It’s always great to build relationships with other photographers. If we met in person with everyone who asked, every time we were asked though, we’d never have time for our couples (or our work!)
If you’re interested in meeting in a professional capacity (to ask questions about how we work, how we edit, how we got that shot etc) you may be interested in mentoring.
Just want to say hi, or chat non photography stuff? Then feel free to drop us an email or add us on Facebook. We’re especially interested in connecting with other duos around the same price bracket.
