These are my answers to the 8 Questions.
1. What exactly is included in the price?
All of our packages and pricesare set out in detail on this website, but our main packages include:-
  • Unlimited photographs taken
  • A high quality finished wedding album or coffee table storybook album to display your photographs.
  • All of your images as high-res files on a printable DVD.
  • No copyright protection on your photographs so you are free to print, email etc.
  • Two photographers for the daytime coverage of your wedding.
  • Pre-wedding consultations at my home studio or at your venue.
  • Password protected online gallery for friends and family to view your wedding photographs.
  • Free A3 poster print of your favourite image from the day.
2. Will I get the copyright for my photographs?
Yes. All of the images on our DVDs are stored at very high resolution and the discs are copyright-free and printable. Also, copies of your DVD can easily be made on your home PC, giving you CDs of all of your photographs to share with friends and family for only the price of a blank CD!
3. Are you the photographer who will be covering our wedding?
All of our weddings are covered by Steve (accompanied by a second photographer - usually his wife Elaine - on our main packages). High quality and dedication is of the utmost importance to us and is what we have built our business on.

We do not employ any other photographers (except in the unprecedented event that one of us is too ill to attend). As business owners, it is vital to us that you are happy with your results. Two photographers working at your wedding will ensure a wide range of photographs.

We aim to be as unobtrusive as possible, unless you need us to organise people for group shots etc (which we are well practised in doing without appearing bossy!) but often the shots being captured will be unposed, natural and much more flattering as a result.

Even when Steve is creating beautiful, romantic shots of the couple away from their guests, Elaine can be in the background capturing the intimate moments in between the structured shots - the loving glances and playful giggles between the two of you!
4. Will we have the chance to get to know you before the wedding?
We always meet wedding couples several times before their day. The initial meeting and any further chats taking place at our home studio, followed by a venue walk-around approximately two to four weeks before your day.

We can even combine this venue visit with an informal "warm-up" shoot of the two of you if required, to get you used to being in front of the lens!
5. Have you photographed a wedding at our venue before?
We photograph on average 35-40 weddings per year and have worked at a huge variety of venues in Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire, London, Essex and beyond.

It is likely that we have worked at your venue before but if we haven't, we always make sure we spend considerable time on a visit to your venue(s) to explore the grounds, view where the ceremony will take place and generally get a feel for the place.
6. Do you have a back-up camera in case of a technical malfunction?
We always bring three top of the range digital cameras with us to a wedding (Canon EOS 5D Mk II's & III's). We have a wide range of lenses and several flashguns complete with numerous memory cards and battery packs with us at all times!
7. How long have you been a wedding photographer?
Steve has been photographing weddings since 1992. Having started as a trainee shadowing an existing professional, he progressed to assistant photographer before moving on to start up his own business in 1998. Elaine has been assisting him since 2005.
8. What type of photographs will be taken on the day?
We always make sure we discuss each couple's individual requirements in detail to get a good idea of what sort of photographs you would like to see. We have a huge range of portfolios and albums to look through if you are in need of some inspiration!

Alternatively, if you are unsure or undecided what you would like then we will happily provide advice and guidance to ensure that you are delighted with your finished results.
