We both hate having our photographs taken (or words to this effect)!
Without doubt the most commonly asked question/statement by a mile! Well you needn’t worry. We are both professionals and ‘peoples people’. We bring with us a sense of calm to ease the panic and smiles to smooth away any nerves. We will meet with you before the wedding day at least once so that on the day you are comfortable with us and vise versa…we build a raport not only with you but also your guests so that everyone is happy and we are often asked if we are friends of the bride and groom!
Who will photograph our wedding and make us feel relaxed in front of the camera?
Both Oli and Jane, we work as a team!
Do we need 2 photographers?
The importance of having 2 photographers on the day is being able to capture different angles. Images taken from the side when a couple are looking out of shot are quite often the favourites. In the morning we divide and conquer while Oli meets up with the Groom and Bestman/Groomsmen, Jane is with the Bride, Bridesmaids and Flowergirls. our cameras are synced so that when viewing the slideshow the day unfolds in chronological order and the Bride can see what the Groom and the Groom can see what the Bride is doing at the same time. Having two photographers also allows greater organisation when it comes to the group shots (having also trained as a stylist Jane makes sure that everyone is looking good, no pigeon toes, slumped shoulders, shirt untucked, button holes on upside down etc….!) We enjoy mingling with the guests and capturing lots of natural relaxed shots and as the time goes so quickly we can cover more ground by being in two places at once!
Do we get all of our images as high res files?
Yes, we provide you with a memory stick with all of the high resolution files in full colour and a second edit with a third of the images changed to Black & White .
How long do you stay?
We stay until you sit down for your wedding breakfast but can stay to document speeches/first dance etc for an extra fee.
Are you digital?
Yes we use Canon 5D Mark 2 and 3 digital cameras.
How long after our wedding do we get to view our images?
We aim to have all your images ready for viewing in three weeks after your wedding. They are then uploaded onto our website and we provide you with your own unique password to access the online slideshow/gallery.
Can our relatives and friends order reprints?
Yes once your images are uploaded your guests can then log onto the Client Area on our website with your chosen password and order reprints online.
How many images do we get?
Approximately 500 finished images depending on the size of your wedding and amount of coverage requested.
What type of albums do you offer?
We offer a range of contemporary printed book albums.
How long do you keep our images for?
We keep all your photographs backed up on our hard drives just in case you ever need them. However we recommend that you do the same.
Do we meet up before the wedding?
Yes. We like to meet up with you a few weeks before to go through timings, and shot lists, thus ensuring everything runs smoothly on the day. This also helps us get to know you before the wedding so that the day runs like a dream!
Where are you based?
We live in Cheltenham with our two daughters Ava and Mimi........and Pickles the Cat!
