Which areas do you cover?
We’re primarily based in Edinburgh but we’re happy to travel throughout the UK (hint!). We’ll also travel internationally if our travel expenses are covered.
Who will be my photographer?
Chris is the main photographer and with Liv having a baby she largely acts as an assistant now. We shoot a number of small and large weddings throughout the year and for smaller Registry Office Weddings it will often just be Chris but for larger weddings Liv will often join as well.
How long do you stay on the day?
It depends on the wedding package you book. For Registry Office Weddings we usually photograph for two hours from the time the ceremony starts. Naturally with larger weddings we will stay much longer, typically from just after the morning breakfast up until the first dance.
What can we expect on the day?
The way we work is to provide a mixture of formal and informal photos but we put a real emphasis on having fun. We try to make your photography experience as comfortable as possible and with your wedding day already being stressful enough, the last thing you want is a moody photographer.
How long does the photography take?
We usually recommend no more than 10 group shots. Following group shots we will take the bride and groom away and do some more personal shots. This is our favourite part of the day and from feedback couples favourite part of the day. Generally speaking the personal shots take around 30-45 minutes give or take.
What is your photography style?
Again it’s a mixture of all kinds of photography. We combine reportage with contemporary portraits. We really love capturing emotions close up.
How do we book you?
For all weddings we ask for a 30% retainer which secures our services for your wedding day. Because of our schedules and also receiving multiple booking requests per day our services are secure once we receive the retainer. In return we will send you a contract along with terms and conditions which cover everything about your big day. Please note until the retainer has been received, my calendar stays open for other clients but once paid I’m yours.
We’re interested in wedding albums, how does this work?
For 2012 we’re offering albums from Finao, Graphistudio and Loxley. Finao’s albums are the most elaborate and are simply stunning. There are many different options available and they are a real premium product. Loxley are based here in Scotland and they make really substantial but also really beautiful albums with a more classic twist. Graphistudio on the other hand are more simple (and cheaper) than both Finao and Loxley but are also really beautifully made. Through a consultation I can show you the different albums and from there you can make your choice.
How about turnaround times?
This is something we try to be quite specific about so couples are under no false impressions. For Registry Office Weddings, turnaround for photos is approximately 10-14 days. Every photo is processed individually and while we could batch photos you simply won’t get the same quality. For larger weddings, photo turnaround is 3-4 weeks.
In terms of albums, Chris does everything with regards to the albums and if you order an album he’ll consult with you the number of images that can be provided and then he’ll make an initial preview which will be sent as a PDF by email for approval. Sound complicated? Trust us, ordering albums is very easy. Albums take approximately 8 weeks to produce.
Can you act as witnesses?
For Registry Office Weddings we often get asked if we can act as witnesses. Yes we can but as Chris usually shoots these on his own please give us notice so he can arrange either for Liv or another assistant to act as a witness.
What forms of payment do you take?
We take payment by credit/debit card, bank transfer, payola, cheque or cash.
We hope that most of your questions have been answered here but if you would like to ask anymore questions or make a booking please use either the contact form on the contact page or alternatively send us an email or give Chris a call (available more or on the mobile).
