Choosing the right wedding photographer/ videographer will come with lots of questions as your wedding will be one of the most important days of your life. Here are some of the most common questions that we get asked however if you have any other queries then please get in contact with us.
Questions To Ask When Picking a Wedding Photographer/ Videographer
What is your style?
The most important thing for our team is to capture moments naturally. This creates a timeless memory of your day with the emotions as they happened. We make sure that the team are as discreet as possible, therefore not being obtrusive or ruining the guest experience of the day. The style used is called wedding photojournalism, another common description is reportage or documentary photography.
I found you on Google, how can I be sure it’s safe to use your company?
Our company is completely safe. We are registered on Companies House as a limited company; we have a Trademark to operate as a photo video company and also £5 million public liability insurance. Also, when you book our services we provide a full contract with Terms and Conditions to protect you.
Is it better to have two photographers & two videographers?
Having too many photographers & videographers on the day can block the stage and ruin the whole day for the guests experience as nobody will be able to see the ceremony. Secondly, with multiple teams surrounding the wedding it is most likely that those people with be constantly in and out of the video and photos. Thirdly, the cost element will increase as you will be paying for the additional team (it is never “thrown” in but incorporated in the price). Only certain circumstances require multiple teams. Always remember it’s about quality not quantity.
Do you provide package deals?
All of our photo and video packages are separate. We do this as everyone has different needs and requirements. Whether you go for both or just one of the services we guarantee the best price.
Do you use cranes?
We have an option to use a Jib Crane. We use a Jib Crane instead of larger cranes which other companies use as this is more discreet and doesn’t take away from the guests experience. Larger cranes can also affect the photographer as you cannot hide a crane from your final images and the look of it also ruins the venue and decor as it is very intrusive.
Do I have to take an album?
Absolutely not. Our packages include unlimited photos which we will give back to you. You have the copyrights to do as you please with them. If you wish to take an album later after your function we can still do this for you.
