HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
We take bookings up to two years in advance of a wedding date, so get in touch with us as soon as possible after your venue etc has been confirmed. We regularly receive enquiries for dates that are already booked, especially May, June & September dates, and we hate to disappoint couples.
WILL THERE BE TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS?
For our standard packages we (Natalie & Robb) will both be there on the day. We are both professional photographers with oodles of experience in photographing weddings. If your package is bespoke – or an elopement – and only requires one photographer then Natalie will be there on the day.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM OUR PICTURES?
Our style is reportage – very natural. We are as unobtrusive as possible so that we can capture images as the day unfolds instead of posing & staging everything. After all, its your day not ours! And of course we’re also happy to photograph formal groups. We are very much bespoke photographers – which is probably why we won the Westcountry Wedding Award for Best Bespoke Photography! Our brand is very important to us and every image you receive will have been individually selected and edited, by us, in our signature style.
We understand that many people get nervous when a camera is pointed at them so our aim is to blend in, then present your finished gallery with a mix of images that tell the story of your day.
WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER?
Travel within Cornwall & Devon is included in our package prices. For weddings outside Cornwall or Devon there will be a small additional mileage charge, and if its quite a big distance we might also require accommodation. But we love travelling further afield – just ask!
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING IN CORNWALL, DEVON OR ANYWHERE ELSE?
Get in touch with your wedding date and details – phone, email or via our contact form. If we’re available (hooray!) and you’d like to meet up for a look at our gorgeous albums, we can arrange an informal meeting over a cup of coffee. If you don’t live locally (and many of our lovely couples don’t) we can skype or just have a good old fashioned chat over the phone.
CAN WE PRINT OUR PICTURES FROM THE USB?
As part of your package from us you will receive a usb with all of your final edited images in jpeg format. And absolutely yes you can print them! The images are print-resolution and don’t have our logo. They are fully licenced for your non-commercial use. Feel free to use them for Facebook and other social media too, but we’d love a credit!
CAN WE HAVE AN ALBUM?
Of course you can! We have carefully selected a handful of manufacturers for their product quality & customer service. These books are only available to professional photographers, and you are under no obligation to order one from us. But if you would like to add a professionally printed album or storybook to your photography package, we have a beautiful range to choose from.
CAN WE HAVE A PRE-WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT?
Absolutely yes! Our pre-wedding photoshoots are a great way to get used to the camera and practise some poses ahead of the big day. We offer a complimentary pre-wedding photoshoot for the bride & groom with our standard full-day package. If you have booked a smaller or special offer package but would like a photoshoot, we can add one on for £150. All sessions are subject to availability – so book them in quick! They usually last around 1 hour and images will be supplied as fully-edited digital jpeg files.
SOMEONE SAID WE NEED THE ‘RAW’ FILES TOO. WHAT ARE THEY AND CAN WE HAVE THEM?
A raw digital file is the modern equivalent of an old-fashioned negative. Unprocessed, unfinished and extremely high-resolution files direct from the image sensor of a digital camera. Raw images are not included with our packages as they are literally our raw material! Instead we provide jpeg files that are fully edited in our style, ready to print and show off. For a more detailed explanation read our blog post here.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes, with Aaduki Multimedia. As full-time professionals this is very important. We are both members of the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and having professional insurance is a vital requirement of our membership.
