Wedding Photography Pricing and FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions (Scroll down for pricing!)
How many photos will we get?
It depends a lot on how many guests and how long I’m there for. Generally I will supply you with 500 photos for a full day.
Would you like a tea or coffee?
No, I’m fine thanks. (Secretly I’d really like a cup of hot water – not boiling – but I don’t want to reveal too much weirdness to you! Even better – hot chocolate!)
Do we need to feed you?
A lot of photographers demand a meal – I don’t. I would enjoy any meal you provided, but I’m also happy to bring my own sarnies and eat them in the car! It gives me chance to phone my hubby and see how he’s coping with the little otters at home.
What’s the difference between hay and straw?
Hay is made from grass and it’s a lot softer, greener, and heavier than straw.
How long does it take for us to get our photos?
One month to 6 weeks. That’s my goal. I don’t like to provide them too soon – once you have your photos the wedding is over. At least waiting one month, you have time to forget bits, and reliving them a month later is really nice.
When do we need to pay you?
I take a £200 deposit to confirm booking, and then the remaining balance is due on or by the wedding day. I’m happy to receive the payment in installments.
What time is it?
It’s 9.05am. But I’m not a clock, so don’t trust me on that.
How do we receive our photos?
I’ll send a USB in the post with fully processed low res (for uploading online) and high res (for printing) files. I’ll also include a slideshow of all your photos set to music of your choice. Plus I’ll send you a link with an online gallery (valid for 6 months). From here, guests can download the files for free and order prints if they wish.
Is there a right way to get rid of sea monkeys?
Oh I wish I knew.
Auntie Claire gave some to Joni for Christmas, and we’ve had a plastic container full of algae and little creatures for months now. How long will this go on? Can we give them back to Auntie Claire? I’m sure we can’t just pour them down the sink – apart from having to explain to Joni where her “pets” have gone, what if they keep breeding and we cause an infestation.
Boiling water seems so cruel. They have grown much bigger than I was expecting.
***Update – the sea monkeys have gone! Simon (my significant otter) managed to remove them from the house (under strict instructions not to tell me of their fate. A full week passed before Joni noticed. Yesterday she ran to “check on her pets” and returned saying “they must have already gone to GG’s” (We’re moving house and have stored some things at my grandma’s house!)***
