You’ll probably have some questions to ask your potential wedding photographers, some of my answers will be on this page but if you can’t find what you’re looking for just send me an email via the contact page
Do you have insurance?
Yes, I have public liability insurance up to £1,000,000, professional indemnity insurance and, of course, equipment insurance.
What kind of cameras do you use?
I use professional quality Fuji X cameras with prime Fuji X lenses. All high end super duper stuff to make sure the images are clear and crisp. I always bring backup equipment, just in case.
Do you only shoot weddings in Scotland?
The majority of my weddings are in Scotland but I’ve been as far afield as Norway and Northern Spain to cover them. I will happily travel to Timbuktu to photograph your wedding!
How many weddings do you cover every year?
Between 15 and 20. I do other photography (and video) work over the course of a year to keep my creative muscles well exercised and to avoid burning out in one single area of photography.
Will you have an assistant photographer with you?
I usually work alone at weddings but do have a few awesome second-shooters available if you’d like two of us at your wedding.
Can we do some group shots?
We certainly can. Most of my couples want a few group shots and as a rough guide 10 different groups can take up to 40 minutes depending on how well behaved everyone is 🙂
How do we pay our deposit?
I use a snazzy (and totally secure) online client management system that lets me take card payments. And good old bank transfers are also great. Someone once gave me an envelope of cash on the day of the wedding which I wasn’t expecting and stressed me out quite a bit! Electronic is harder to drop and lose.
Do we get all of the images to use?
As part of your package you will get a USB stick with the final selection of high resolution images on it to do whatever you want with. All I ask is if you share them on social media that you credit me as the photographer and link to my website/ social media profile. Cheers!
How many pictures do we get on our USB?
It varies from wedding to wedding depending on number of guests, length of day, etc but generally it can be anywhere between 300 and 700 high resolution images. This final selection will have been edited down from everything shot on the day. You won’t get to see the ones where people have their eyes closed or mouths open mid-conversation.
When will we get our pictures?
All my couples get their images around 4-6 weeks after their wedding, and if I can turn them round quicker than that then I will. It’s the magic of the digital age!
Do you print our photos for us?
I create photo books (a modern alternative to traditional wedding albums) using a Scottish company who produce the books by hand in Edinburgh. These are the main albums that I give to my couples. And if you’re hungry for more hard copies of your images, you and your family can order prints from me through your personal online print shop.
Do we need to feed you?
I don’t expect to be fed at your wedding and always have a packed meal to eat while you and your guests dine. I don’t photograph guests during the meal and instead use this time to do a quick check of the day’s shooting, recharge batteries, backup your images, etc so don’t worry if you don’t see me while you’re eating.
