Do you have backup gear when shooting weddings?
Yes, of course. I carry two cameras with me, several lenses, backup batteries, chargers and memory cards, and as I’m shooting my cameras are saving simultaneously onto two memory cards (using dual in-camera card slots) in case something goes wrong with one of the cards.
After your wedding I also backup your photos onto at least two hard drives as I’m editing them.
I understand how precious and fleeting these moments are and I take great precaution to ensure your photos are safe.
How long in advance should we book?
There’s not really a set guideline, but I’d say 6 months in advance is good for an engagement or family session to ensure availability, although a month or less in advance *may* sometimes work, especially during ‘off-season’/colder months. For weddings, you’ll want to book further in advance – most couples book a year in advance to help ensure their date is secured. (Some couples book a year and a half in advance! Get in touch ASAP to make sure you can secure your date!)
What should I wear to my engagement/family session?
The absolute most important thing is that you’re comfortable. Wear what you feel good in, as that will usually show through in the photos. Clothes with texture and colour are great – think about what would look interesting, and try to co-ordinate styles a bit if you’re doing a couple or family shoot. (You don’t have to wear the same colours, but co-ordinate outfits that compliment each other.)
Depending on what kind of shoot it is, we may need to budget time for wardrobe or location changes, which are absolutely welcomed.
Very important: Consider the weather during your shoot date, and make sure you’ll be warm/cool enough in whatever you wear!
How long does it take to get my photos back?
It depends on the kind of shoot we’re doing.
Engagement/Family sessions are delivered within 3 weeks.
Weddings will take longer as there are *many* more photos to sift through, select the best & edit – typically the turnaround time will be within 3-6 weeks for weddings (might be a bit shorter, or a bit longer). Don’t worry, though – I’ll share some sneak peak photos as I edit.
How many photos do we get?
You get a selection of the best shots on a downloadable web gallery or USB – the ones you look the best in, and the ones that make the most impact. I’ll provide these to you fully edited. Email me for more details!
Can you design albums for engagement and family sessions?
Definitely! There are several options, ranging from high-end heirloom albums to memento albums that can double as guest signing books.
