Wedding FAQ

Q: What should I look for when choosing a wedding photographer?
   
A: When choosing a wedding photographer, look for someone with experience shooting weddings, a portfolio that aligns with your style and preferences, positive reviews from previous clients, and clear communication and organisation skills.
 
Q: How far in advance should I book my wedding photographer?
    
A: It's best to book your wedding photographer as soon as possible, ideally 12-18 months in advance, especially if you're getting married during peak wedding season or on a popular date, as the top photographers will be in demand.
  
 Q: What should I expect from a wedding photography package?
  
 A: A wedding photography package typically includes a certain number of hours of coverage, a specific number of edited images, and the rights to those images. Other possible inclusions are an engagement session, a second photographer, and a wedding album.
 
Q: How many photos should I expect from my wedding photographer?
   
A: The number of photos you receive from your wedding photographer depends on several factors, including how many hours of coverage you book, how many guests you have, and how many memorable moments and details you want to capture. You can expect to receive anywhere from 300-800 edited photos.
 
Q: How long does it take to receive my wedding photos?
    
A: The photographer's turnaround time for wedding photos varies. However, depending on the photographer's workload, you should receive your edited images within 6-10 weeks after your wedding.
  
Q: What happens if my wedding photographer gets sick or has an emergency on my wedding day?
   
A: Professional wedding photographers usually have a backup plan in emergencies, such as having a network of fellow photographers who can step in. Please discuss this with your photographer before booking.
 
Q: Do I need to provide my wedding photographer with a shot list?
   
A: While providing your photographer with a shot list is unnecessary, giving them an idea of the must-have shots you want, such as family group portraits or a specific location where you wish to take your couple portraits. Having the family group list will speed up your photographer and avoid having impatient guests waiting around.
 
Q: Should I have an engagement session with my wedding photographer?
    
A: An engagement session with your wedding photographer can be a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and know your photographer's style and personality. Getting casual and intimate photos with your partner is also a good opportunity.

Q: What should I wear for my engagement session?
    
 A: Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident and coordinates with your partner's outfit. Solid colours and simple patterns usually photograph well, and avoid clothes with large logos or text. Your photographer can also give you more specific advice based on the location and style of your shoot.
  
Q: How much should I budget for wedding photography?
   
A: Wedding photography prices vary greatly depending on the photographer's experience and location, coverage length, and any additional services you want. On average, couples in the UK spend around £1,200-£3,000+ on wedding photography for a full day, but prices can range from £600 to £4,000 or more. But remember, you do pay for what you get, as the lower end tends to be inexperienced photographers.
