  • "Wedding Photography"
    This testimonial was entered by Helen Chapman Photography on 18 August 2018

    "Helen Chapman was our wonderful wedding photographer on 15th July 2017 at Escot. She was fantastic at putting us both at our ease before the ceremony and being a really crucial part of our whole day. She was extremely organised yet managed to make everything fun too. She created a beautiful sequence of events from the Groom’s preparation and Bridal preparation, through the service and reception and took all sorts of combinations of group and couple shots, some of which we’d previously discussed with her. She captured both the serious and the fun side of the day really well. I particularly loved the way she wanted to get to know us as a couple prior to the wedding so as to best represent us in the style of photos she took. We highly recommend Helen for your special day, it was so lovely knowing we could trust her to organise everyone, enabling us to enjoy our day all the more. Thank-you so much" Helen. Melanie

    "Helen and Adam were on the case from the moment they walked in. Taking images of me getting ready, my dress, bridesmaids’ dresses and us just doing what we were doing to get ready. The images of the groom which of course I didn’t see get taken were brilliant and fun. Our group photos are lovely and Helen manage to get everyone around for these pics, no hassle! I have an image of everything from make-up to first dance, and am really happy I have these images for years to come! The quality and service was fantastic and should I have another event, I wouldn’t hesitate asking Helen to be my photographer. Thank you Helen and Adam!” Carlie

How far in advance should I contact you?

Most brides contact me between 1 year to 18 months before the wedding, just after they have set the date and organised their venue.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No. You and your partner are the most important people and your wedding day is your chance to show your love and affection for each other to those around you. To ensure you get the attention and service you deserve I never photograph more than one wedding on a wedding day.

Are you able to travel?

Yes, I love to travel and will travel anywhere within the UK, if I am available. I charge just a small fee for wedding outside the South West.

What is the charge for travelling?

My millage rates are 40 p per mile outside of Devon and Somerset.

What style of photos do you take?

My style of photography encompasses dramatic landscape portraiture, photo journalism and formal family portraits. This I find gives you and your family the best range of photos possible in order to tell the story of your wedding day.

What kind of technology do you use?

I keep up to date with the latest technology and have a range of resources available that allow me to produce beautiful photography for you.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I am innovative in that I like to use bare bulb flash in my twilight shoots this lends itself to dramatic wow photos. That said I also will ask my brides to do some unusual things like stand on a wall, lie on the ground to get dramatic shots but only within the limits of your comfort.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use two Nikon Camera bodies with a range of lens and flashes.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

I use Smug mug. Once your photographs are ready they will be placed into an online gallery and you will be given an invitation to view them. You can choose who you would like to see the photos by sending the link to your friends and family. They will then be able to view the photos and decide if they would like to purchase any.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

The delivery time for post processing your images after the wedding is 4 weeks.

Do you send all the photos taken?

On a typical wedding day I will take appropriately 1,500-2,000 photographs. In some of these you might have your eyes shut, or one photo might be very similar to another therefore so I go through all the photos and complete a basic cull in order to get the files that I intend to edit for you. I only send fully edited files for your viewing this is standard across the industry.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I am the main photographer and I have a lighting assistant.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Whilst I might work on my own most of the time, I am part of a network of other local highly qualified photographers who I can call on to take my place in an emergency.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

All photography rights remain with the photographer, this is standard in the industry, however once you have decided on your photos and received the memory stick I give you the rights to print and publish the photos. The only thing I ask is that you do not edit the photographs in anyway and that you credit my work.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

I charge per event.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Yes I can work extra hours. The charge for this is £100 per hour per person.

How do you charge extra time?

You decide on the wedding package you want but if you decide at a later date you would like more time for your photography on your wedding day than you can either up-grade your package, upgrading your package is usually cheaper, or add on the extra time from the A'la carte menu.

What are the forms of payment?

I take £100 pounds holding deposit either via cheque or PayPal, the rest can be paid on a monthly basis if you require with the final payment due two months before the wedding.

How do you work?

My style of working is calm and professional. I see my role as almost like a wedding planner, as I am usually the only vendor who is with you throughout your whole wedding day and you will often find me helping with dresses etc in order that your wedding day goes exactly the way you planned it. My aim is to keep you calm, happy and enjoying your day.
