    CAN I SEE SOME OF YOUR PREVIOUS WORK?

    Absolutely! I actively encourage prospective clients to take a look at my portfolio, to get a good idea of my style of work. A selection of my wedding images are available to view here on my website. I also post regularly to my Facebook and Instagram. If you would like to look at my work, in sample Folio wedding albums, then please do let me know and we can arrange a meeting. 

    DO YOU HAVE A CONTRACT?

    Yes, I give all my clients a photography agreement that confirms your booking and explains exactly what you can expect before, during and after your wedding day.

    DO WE NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT? 

    Yes, a deposit of £75 is payable when you confirm your booking (which reserves your wedding date), this is non refundable. The balance is then due 4 weeks before your wedding day.

    HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

    Once you’ve decided to book with me if its in person i will have it all on paper, it its online I will send you a link to a private booking form, once filled out it will give me most of the information that I’ll need for your contact. Once the deposit has been paid and contract signed you will be all booked in for your wedding date! payments can be made by bank transfer, paypal or cash.

    DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?

    If your having a pre wedding photoshoot then Absolutely!  If your not having a pre wedding photoshoot we could always meet up for a tea and a chat, it isn't always possible and sometimes we can still build up a relationship via messages/emails/video call, whatever works.

    DO WE RETAIN THE COPYRIGHT OF THE IMAGES?

    As photographer, I retain the copyright, but I give you the licence (as stated in the wedding contract) to use the photos as you wish from the USB for personal use only, including making prints. You may use also them on social media if the images are credited. I also ask that I am able to use some on social media and my website but this is wholly dependent on your explicit permission and a privacy form will be sent out to you. this is a opt in or opt out form, It also tells you how i will use the information you give me to.

    WHAT APPROACH DO YOU TAKE IN PHOTOGRAPHING A WEDDING?

    I answer this in more detail ... here...

    ARE YOU INSURED?

    Yes. 

  • ON THE DAY

     

    HOW LONG DO YOU WORK ON THE WEDDING DAY?

    It will all depend on what your having covered, Typically on a full day, I will arrive for the bridal prep halfway through and will stay up until at least 10 minutes after your first dance, which is usually at around 8-9pm. However if you require more time then I am very happy to quote for that.

    DO YOU SHOOT ALONE?

    Yes, unless a second shooter is requested.

    My aim is to be a friend at your wedding whilst also being your photographer. Shooting alone allows me to remain unobtrusive and to go unnoticed for the majority of the day.

    DO YOU NEED FEEDING AT A WEDDING?

    No! I am more than happy to bring along my own lunch. That said, if there is food available for me on your wedding day then I would greatly appreciate it.

    HOW LONG WILL THE GROUP PICTURES TAKE?

    Typically we would try to take all of your group pictures within half an hour. I personally recommend you limit the amount to around 10 group pictures, as any more than that can end up eating into your precious time. It is entirely up to you though, and if you do want more or less group shots then that is absolutely fine.

    DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?

    Yes, I always have additional cameras and lenses, along with extra batteries, memory cards, lighting gear, and anything else I think might come in handy on your wedding day.

     WHAT IF IT’S RAINING ON THE DAY?

     If it’s really throwing it down outside we can find a nice place to light up inside and take any of the formal portraits that you require there instead. Typically at some stage of the day there will be a break in the rain though, so if an opportunity presents itself I may drag you outside for a few quick pictures. Unless of course you don't mind getting wet, as in that case we just carry on taking photographs as normal!

    Don't be to scared of the rain as it can make for beautiful photos.

  • AFTER YOUR WEDDING

     

    ARE ALL OF THE FINAL IMAGES EDITED?

    Yes, following the wedding day I go through all photos ensuring that you have a good variety of quality pictures that tell the story of your day. 

    HOW LONG AFTER OUR WEDDING WILL OUR PHOTOS BE READY?

    I aim to have all your photos ready within 5-6 weeks.

    HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PICTURES?

    I upload your pictures to a private online gallery where you, friends, and family to be able to log in to see your photographs. Once you have viewed the gallery and confirmed you are happy then your USB, ALBUM or any ART WORK that has been order will be posted out to you shortly after.

  • ✰STILL GOT SOME QUESTIONS?

    I fully understand that choosing your wedding photographer is a massive decision, and I want to make sure that you feel secure when making a booking with me, so if you do have any questions then I am always available to chat. Just head over to my contact form here and let me know how I can help. I have only touched on the basic details on this page, so if you like we can arrange a meeting to have a chat about your wedding plans, and we can go over how I work in more detail too.

    Hope to hear from you soon

    Rachael
