Q: Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A: No, we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.
Q: What is Same Day Edit or SDE? and Why You Should Consider it?
A: For those of you who may not be familiar with them, a same-day edit (or SDE for short) is a cinematic mini-documentary that tells the story of the wedding day as it unfolds from the bride and groom's perspective. It includes footage from all of the intimate moments of your event, including the pre-ceremony preparations, ceremony, post-ceremony and first dance.
"A same-day edit is a great way to 'wow' guests who were unable to attend the ceremony portion of the day. People are always in disbelief after seeing one of our same-day edits — they can't believe how something so amazing was completed in such a short time."
Q: What time you arriving on the day?
A: We normally to bridal prep venue about 3-4 hours before the ceremony time. we'll try to capture the general atmosphere, the laughter,jokes and tears, we also photograph the dress and accessories, and then the bridal portrait session.
Q: How does the album design process work?
A: After you viewed and picked your images, we do the design the album layout, to ensure that it accurately reflects the events of your special day. this can then be proofed through the online gallery password protected. Once you're happy with the design. this process takes about five to six weeks.

Should you wish to book, just complete a booking form and return it with £300 deposit.
Q: We're not getting married for a few years but like your work, should we wait until nearer the event?
A: We wouldn’t recommend it. Most clients book us between 12 and 18 months in advance, and some have signed us up two years in advance. Remember we can only ever shoot one wedding a day and once we are booked we are booked, so don’t miss out. By booking early you also make yourself immune from any price rises, as we always honour your original quote. Saying this, do always check your date, even if it is only a few months away as you never know!
Q: Do we need to feed you on the day?
A: If we are with you past the wedding breakfast, then yes please. It’s a very long day for us, and we’d rather not have to think about where we are getting our lunch/dinner from, or retreat to the car to eat some warm sandwiches and expect them to fuel us until into the evening. Saying that, we don’t expect wedding food just anything hot and filling, but when you are eating it is good if we can eat too. We don’t take pictures of people eating, no-one looks good doing it, and we want you and your guests to enjoy your food and not feel self-conscious.
