FAQ

These are some of the frequently asked questions we get from brides-to-be. If you want to get more information on any topic, please telephone us on 087-6799008

“When do you start and finish ?”

We usually get to the brides house or hotel at least two hours before the wedding and finish when you sit down for dinner, usually around six o clock.

“How many pictures do you take ?”

Normally we take over 1,000 pictures on the day, but many are duplicates of the same scene to avoid pictures of people blinking. You will finish up with approximately 500 images from which to choose your album.

“Can I print my own pictures ?”

When you get our Core Wedding Pack, you will get a DVD with 500 images. These are fully colour-corrected and ready for printing, in full size and colour. We also include a folder of the same images ready to put on Facebook, put on your iPod or attach to emails.

“When will my Album be ready ?”

With our core wedding pack, you will also get a proof book of 500 images within 3 weeks and when you pick your favourite images, your album will be ready in another 3 weeks.

“When is the best time to take family pictures ?”

By far the best time is immediately after the church cermony, because everyone is still there and they haven’t had time to head to the bar !

“Do you retouch pictures ?”

Yes, we do. Our aim is to make you look as good as possible, so any close-up picture will get a little “help.” This means taking away any little marks, lines or spots and generally making you look smooth and fresh !

“How far ahead do I need to book ?”

Early Spring is my busiest booking period. Since most weddings are on Fridays and Saturdays and the number of weekends in the year is limited, please give us a call as soon as you set a date. We are unable to hold a date without a deposit, so unfortunately it’s a case of first come, first served.

“My cousin has a great camera, do I need to hire you at all ?”

Yes, you do need to hire us. It takes more than a great camera to make a great wedding album. You can’t afford bad photography on your wedding day.

“Any more advice ?”

The most important thing to remember is to enjoy yourself and have fun. It may sound silly, but some brides get so wrapped up in preparing for the big day, they cannot relax on the day. By the time they are enjoying themselves, it’s almost over. Please don’t make that mistake. Take time to look around you and take in all the details and all the faces. Everyone is there to enjoy themselves and they want to see you enjoying yourself as well. It all happens so quickly, so be sure you soak it all up and make it one of the best days of your life.
