As a South Wales Wedding Photographer, I get asked the same questions quite often. So I’ve come up with a list of the most frequently asked questions. If you’ve had a look through, and still can’t get your question answered, feel free to send me an email, I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
This is the order I usually take the group shots, it makes it a lot easier to organise:
- Everyone in the wedding
- Bride and Groom plus bride side of the family
- Bride and Groom plus their children, siblings and bride’s parents
- Bride and Groom plus their children and bride’s parents
- Bride and Groom plus their children
- Bride and Groom plus bride’s parents
- And then the same with the groom side
- Bride and Groom plus bridesmaids and groomsmen
- Any other requests such as friends, work friends, uni friends etc.
I’ve done this list so many times, I can do it in around 30 minutes, but if you give me your list – which I’m more than happy to do – you will need to allow 3 minutes per group.
We have a chat and a laugh! But in-between that, I’ll show you a sample wedding album, some example weddings and talk you through how I photograph your whole day from start to finish.
We will embrace it! I have portable studio lights which i bring with me to every wedding, and we’ll take the photos in the dry. Unless it’s in the evening, then if you’re up for it, we;ll get a magical photo in the rain with you guys!
No problem, I always carry a backup camera with me.
I’ve had a camera club competition, where I had to swap cameras with a fellow wedding photographer, he was Nikon, and I was Canon. I won the competition using his Nikon. It doesn’t matter what camera I’m using, it’s about my vision and creativity.
2x Canon 5D3, Canon 24-70mm 2.8, Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, Sigma 12-24mm 4.5-5.6, Canon 28mm 1.8, Canon 50mm 1.4, Canon 85mm 1.8, Godox AD360 and a whole lot of other speedlights.
I usually post one of my favourite photos from the wedding day on my facebook page www.facebook.com/photographyfirst if you’re not on facebook, that’s fine, you can still see the photos without signing up.
I go through every single photo, deleting the duplicates, correcting the exposure, colour balance and a few other tweeks to make your wedding photos perfect, I don’t like to rush it, as it’s your memories, and they need to be flawless.
Yes, of course you can! Some couples decide a year later for their anniversay, some two years later, as long as you still have the high resolution images, then you’re good to go!
No, but you do have Printing Rights, you can print your own photos, make your own album, canvases etc.. Copyright remains with the photographer, and you’re not allowed to claim as your own work and sell the images.
I deliver low resolution photos too, please use those to post on the internet. I also provide an online gallery, you’re free to send the link to your family and friends.
Yes, all my gear is insured, I also have £5m Public Liability insurance and £2m Personal Indemity Insurance.
