FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a number of commonly asked questions about photography coverage. If after reading you still have an unanswered question, please feel free to call or send me email .
Can you tell us about the pre-wedding shoot, do we need to have it?
A pre-wedding portrait shoot is included in all my packages, it’s a fun and relaxed session that is a great way for us all to get to know each other, and for you both to get used to having your photograph taken. This can be done whilst we meet up to have a look around your venue or at a location that is special to you, usually about a month before the wedding day. This is also a great time to go through the plans for the day and to talk over the photographs that you want me to take. Usually this is a month before the wedding day.
How long will you stay for on the wedding day?
I believe in capturing the whole story of your day, so I will be with you from the morning preparations (as early as needed) to after the first dance. However, the fee is corresponds to shooting time. Call me and let’s talk about what do you want.
How many photographs will we receive?
The quantity taken is dependent on a range of factors (how many guests there are, the number of locations used throughout the day etc). I don’t set a maximum limit, I’ll shoot all the time I’m there. You can also order two photographers to capture your wedding day. Ask more, send me email or call.
Will you take photos of the groom as well as the bride before the wedding?
I usually try to visit both the bride as well as the groom before the ceremony, if ordered. Normally I will first visit the bride whilst she has her hair and make up done, and capture details such as the dress and shoes and some informal photos with her bridesmaids etc. If the guys are getting ready nearby or at the wedding venue then I’ll aim to get shots of them getting ready too. If the guys are getting ready far away at a separate location and you want their part of the day capturing too, you can add on a second photographer for an additional fee. It also means that you will get photos from different angles which might not be possible with just one photographer, such as during the ceremony.
Do you take group photos as well as candids?
I’m happy to take a limited amount of group photos of family and important guests, this can be discussed at the pre-wedding meeting.
Do you charge travel expenses?
Travel expenses for weddings within 20 km of Kuopio will be covered within the package fee. Expenses for travel and accommodation for further afield will be added.
When will we be able to see our photographs?
I aim to have the photographs available to view online within 2 weeks. I use DropBox. Some of the photos may be used in my websites.
What camera do you use?
I use professional Nikon digital SLR cameras, currently the D800, D3s and D700 models. My lenses are by Nikon (Nikkor) and Sigma Art series. These are highly capable for weddings as they are well renowned for their low light capabilities and quick focusing systems, ideal for catching those important moments, even in the darkest of venues. I always carry 2 cameras with me to each wedding and a range of lenses, plus another back up in the car. This means that not only do I have a spare camera in case one breaks during the day, but also that I don’t have to stop taking photos if I need to change from a wide to a zoom lens for example, and can carry on taking photos and not miss any important moments throughout the day.
What’s included in the wedding photography package?
All of my packages include a pre-wedding meeting, wedding photography as ordered, fully edited high resolution images online and a secure gallery on my DropBox.
Are you professional?
Photography is my main work. I have Further Qualification in Photography, FQP ( ISCED 3 ). Yes, I am professional.
How do we book you?
Once we have had chance to meet up, and you have made the decision to go ahead with the booking, I will post a contract and booking form to sign and return.
