Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience, and you want to make sure that you are happy and confident with your choice in photographer. Hopefully these Heather Photography FAQs will be able to answer some of your questions. But, if not then you can always contact me and I will be more than happy to help!
How much do you charge for a wedding?
I offer a very flexible approach to pricing wedding photography. You can see information on the services that I provide here
Do you take group shots?
Although I would mainly describe my style as documentary; I am not a full documentary photographer therefore I do take groups shots if requested. Your family and friends are a special part of your day, and so it’s important to keep them involved. I will always ask for a list of proposed group shots before the day (so I can make sure I get everyone in!) but I would suggest that you think carefully when making your list. Group shots can take some time to organise and we want to make sure that their time, and yours, isn’t taken up in front of a camera!
Can we meet you?
If there is a time and date which is convenient for both of us, then I can always meet up for a coffee. However I do find that just having a Skype chat is absolutely fine. It’s nice for us to see each other before the day, so you know who to look out for on the day! I aim to have an online consultation with couples in the last few weeks’ leading up to the wedding so we can go over the finer details of the day.
Where do you work?
Although I live in Devon, and the majority of the weddings that I photograph are within this area, I can (and love to!) travel all over. If you have a wedding which is outside of this area please get in contact and we can discuss what you are after!
Are you insured?
Indeed I am! I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance. If you require a certificate then this can be produced. It is worth noting that I do have a higher limit on my public liability which is required by some venues. Make sure to ask your venue what their limits are!
Will our photographs be used for advertising?
Do you need to see the venue before the day?
It’s not necessary for me to see a venue prior to a wedding date; one of the main reasons for this is because the conditions and light differ so much from day to day that visiting a venue beforehand often doesn’t give me the detail that I need for the day. As a professional wedding photographer, I shoot with the conditions and situations that present themselves on the day itself.
Do we need to provide you with food?
If I am working a long day (6 hours plus) then I do request that food is provided.
Do you do pre-wedding shoots?
Of course! If this is something that you are interested in then just let me know!
How many photos do we get?
I don’t limit the amount of photographs that I take at a wedding; however the total number will depend on various factors. How long I am at the wedding, how may guests there are, and what happens on the day. Obviously you will not receive all of these (there would be thousands!). Photos are culled and then edited so you get the very best of the selection. Generally Speaking you can upwards of 300 photographs from a 6 hour wedding.
