Where are you based?
We are based in Swindon, Wiltshire but we travel extensively all over the UK. There may be a small travel fee for weddings over our 100 mile catchment area but this will be fully discussed during our meeting.
How long do you stay for on a full wedding day?
It really is what it says on the tin. All day! We arrive when you tell us to arrive and we leave typically around 30-40 minutes after your first dance. If the party is poppin' then we are shooting. We also capture any fireworks or sparklers planned for the day in the later evening.
What equipment do you use?
We both shoot on a Canon 5D MKiii and we have a backup 6D MKii for insurance. We shoot with a vast array of lenses including Canon 50mm f1.4, Sigma 24 - 70mm f2.8 ART, Sigma 35mm f1.4 ART, Tamron 70 - 200mm f2.8 G2 and we have a big old bad boy Sigma 150 - 600mm f5-6.3 (not really for weddings!). We come with loads of other bits like camera flashes, OFC, reflectors.
Should we feed you?
We really don’t mind, we have had clients who have and clients who haven’t. It is very much appreciated as often we would be shooting for around 8-10 hours. In all honestly we would much prefer a bit of money behind the bar so we can get drinks as its seriously thirsty business.
Are you insured?
We are indeed - public liability, indemnity and all equipment. We also have very comprehensive AA break down.
Do you require a deposit?
We ask for a £150 booking fee to secure your wedding day and this comes off the final balance. We ask that the final balance be paid no later that 12 weeks before your big day.
Can we meet you before the wedding day?
Yes! 100% providing local and national lockdown rules are adhered too. During the height of the pandemic we have done phone calls and zoom meetings but we have since arrange with couples to do venue walk around to meet in person. We love to do our meetings at a coffee shop with a bit of cake, who doesn't need cake when planning a wedding?
How long does it take for our images to come back to us?
6 - 8 weeks - During our peak season this is most likely to be at the 8 week mark. We always get this question and we will touch upon it in blog but editing it 80% of the work. We spend extra time and care on removing things like ugly fire exit signs and extinguisher. Be patient, we will give you a “sneak peek” 24 hours after your big day to keep you going until the final gallery is done.
These are just some of our most commonly asked questions; obviously if you have any other questions we will be happy to answer them via email or during any consultation...
