We typically provide around 10-12 hours of coverage throughout the day. From bridal prep all the way to dancing the night away. But don't worry, we don't have a stop watch! We always stay until we feel like we've documented your day fully, we don't want to miss a moment! Some couples have specifically requested us to capture their sparkler send off, which we were more than happy to do. If you have important moments, we'll be there.
Will you both be there on our day?
Definitely! You'll always have the two of us. Some people even say we're inseparable! We both have our own nuanced way of shooting which makes for some great photos! Always having 2 different perspectives means that one of those precious candid moments won't be missed. It also allows one of us to be with each of you as you get ready; it's his day too (I guess)!
How far are you willing to travel?
We're willing to travel anywhere in the UK for your day. We can also travel to destination abroad if the UK isn't the place for you! No mountain high enough or valley low enough! Travel costs for up to 50 miles around the Liverpool/Manchester area is covered in our price.
How do we book you?
Contact us via the contact page above and we'll get back to you! To confirm your date we require a £100 deposit and for you to sign our agreement and the date is 100% yours. But typically, if you specify a date to us and we're available, we try and keep that date pencilled out for as long as we can for you.
When do we pay you?
As we've just mentioned above, we require a £100 deposit to book your date. The rest of the money we will need anytime up to 4 weeks before your wedding.
Do we have to meet you before our day?
Not necessarily, but we do advise it. It is one of the best ways to get to know you as a couple which really helps on the day. We want you to be as relaxed as possible to capture those candid & spontaneous moments, and it helps if it's a friend behind the camera rather than a total stranger! It also enables us to talk through what's most important to you on your unique day. If for some reason it's not practical to do this in person, we can do this via a Skype/FaceTime/phone call instead, which ever is the most convenient for you.
I’m anxious about having my photograph taken...
You're certainly not alone! In our experience, this is how most couples feel, we're just not used to being that much the centre of attention! But have no fear, our candid and unobtrusive style means that you can carry on your day like we're not even there. As for those more posed shots, if this is you, we recommend an engagement shoot and meet up beforehand so we can get to know each other. It really helps that relaxed vibe on the day.
How many photographs will we get?
We are very much quality over quantity types of people. But that being said, we typically provide 350-600+ photos of your day. Certainly enough to plaster your home with!
Do you edit the photos?
Yep! Every single one. We spend several hours (more than you can know) giving each photo our signature style and ensuring that every photo you receive is absolutely perfect. Our standard of work is very important to us.
How will we receive our photos?
You'll receive your top quality photos on a nicely presented USB complete in a presentation box. We even get our wives to put a bow on top. To give it that feminine touch ;)
When will we receive our photos?
We like to give our couples something to look at in just the first 1-2 weeks after your special day, as we know the wait can be excruciating! So we give you 20-30 photos (via Dropbox) of some of the highlights throughout the day to tide you through until you receive your complete set of photos, on USB, 6-8 weeks after your day. If we're delayed (for whatever reason; it's not happened before!) we'll let you know, we'd rather take the time to make sure every photo is perfect than rush things.
Will we own the copyright of our photos?
Sort of. For the most part, yes. You have fullprinting rights, but not the full copyrights. Please print away to your heart's content. Post to social media, print a billboard, hand out fliers, anything! The photos are yours. Though we do require if other suppliers/commercial partners ask you for photos to redirect them to us so that we can converse with them directly.
Do you require a meal on the day?
Being on your feet all day is pretty tiring and, like most people, we can get pretty hungry! We would love some food, but it's certainly not required if it's too much hassle. It can even be a cheap Tesco's meal deal, we don't mind! Just something to keep us going through the night would be very much appreciated.
Can you take traditional photos? If so, do we need a list of photographs we want before the day?
Whilst we very much try to keep to the documentarian/journalistic style of photographs, we understand that Auntie's, Uncles, Grandmas, and Grandads sometimes like the more traditional photos. We are more than happy to accommodate this but require a list of these various groups prior to the day, with your most organised groomsman (or bridesmaid!) ready to direct! We strongly recommend that, if this is what you would like, to keep the amount of groups to a minimum. These types of shots can take a rather long time whilst Uncle Boris is off in the bathroom and no one can find Auntie Gladys. And I'm sure your guests would prefer having a drink/chatting with people than standing around waiting.
Do you do packages for both engagement shoots and wedding shoots?
Short answer; yes. Long answer; we have various packages with different add ons and extras that you can pick and choose from. Please use the contact page above and we'll send them out to you!
