Frequently Asked Questions
What is the price of your service?
Prices from £795
What services do you offer?
From 3 hours to full day coverage. Shorter coverage available for small mid-week weddings.
What does the wedding package include?
Packages range from digital only to all inclusive album & digital.
How far in advance should I contact you?
A difficult one to answer in the terms of months/years! Some weddings are booked 2 years in advance, others booked as late as a few months, & very occasionally only weeks! Only one wedding is covered on any particular day, so first come, first served.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Are you able to travel?
Based in Burnham, Bucks, coverage nationwide.
What is the charge for travelling?
Mileage may be charged for locations more than 40 miles from the studio in Burnham SL1 8ND.
What style of photos do you take?
Our pre-wedding meeting will determine the ratio of groups/fun/casual photos.
I like to spend a minimum 15-20 minutes with the bride and groom creating those special images.
What kind of equipment do you use?
All equipment is high-end professional kit, including the backup equipment. All cameras have dual card slots so images are saved on two cards simultaneously.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
All weddings include an online gallery for 6 months.
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
Images are usually ready for viewing as a slideshow in the studio when you return from honeymoon, or within 2 weeks if you are not going away.
Do you send all the photos taken?
When taking candid photos, there can sometimes be some unflattering captures, or an unsuspecting guest walks infront of the camera at the click moment. These shots, along with 'blinks' or images deemed below standard, will not be included in the final cut.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
Chris prefers to work alone, but an assistant or 2nd photographer can be provided (at extra cost) if requested.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
We work within a small group (some are actually our rivals!) but can call upon each other should the need arise.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
We retain copyright of all images we take, but if requested prior to the wedding, we will not use photos from your wedding on social media, website or advertising.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
We have options for either. Shorter bookings may be more suited to an hourly rate, and longer coverage better value as an event rate/package.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Normally this will not be a problem if it is an extension to evening coverage. If the initial booking is due to conclude at the start of the wedding breakfast, it may not be possible to extend beyond this if requested on the day. Naturally, we will be flexible where we can.
How do you charge extra time?
With 'per hour' bookings, additonal coverage added on the day is charged at £50 per half hour. This fee includes the extra editing plus the images taken within this period. Additional coverage on 'per event' may be negotiable, dependant on the initial package booked.
What are the forms of payment?
All major credit cards accepted. £250 deposit is required to secure a booking. Four months prior to the wedding, a 2nd instalment is due, 50% of the outstanding balance. The final balance is due at the pre-wedding meeting, not less than 14 days prior to the wedding.
How long have you been photographing weddings professionally?
Almost 30 years! But don't let that lead you to believe you will have a stuffy old codger turn up at your wedding!
