What is your Style?
We have 2 styles of photography. Traditional and Documentary. At most weddings we mix these styles to allow us to catch those special moments with minimal intrusion, but at the same time a communicate when required for official photos if this is part of the day.
Do we receive the images in B&W as well?
Most of our work is a mixture of the two and we make a decision through experience as to which image should be in colour or B&W. This can be reversed or changed if requested.
What equipment do you use?
We use the latest Mirrorless Fujifilm X-T2 professional equipment with a variety of professional grade zoom and prime lenses. You may wonder why not Nikon or Canon like most photographers. We did work with the Nikon DSLR cameras but decided to move to the Fuji Mirrorless system as we felt there were many benefits for the Wedding industry by utilising these cameras extra features. They allow for a live preview of the shot we will get, they also offer a completely silent electronic shutter option where required. We also use a few flash guns and triggers for certain setups when required. We don’t believe in tripod setups, reflectors, soft box rigs etc as this can take up far too much time and can be overpowering. The occasional tripod may be used in low light scenarios but only when we feel a great need for it.
Are you insured?
Yes. we are insured for both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity. This means that we are insured if we have an accident, we cause an accident, damages to your belongings and ours.
What happens if you are ill and can’t make the wedding?
Thankfully this has never happened. In the eventuality that this would happen then we would do our utmost to ensure another photographer is there to record your big day. We would still take responsibility to edit and produce your images.
Do we need to meet you?
There is no requirement to meet. If you feel that you would like to meet to discuss specifics or to just put a face to the name then this is not a problem at all and we can make an arrangement to meet. If not then again this is fine. We know what we are doing in general and any changes or differences in the order of the day can be communicated by email or discussed on the day if necessary. All we really need from you is the date, location, names, official photo list, times etc.
Do I travel?
We mostly work within the Scottish Borders and Lothian area but when required we are willing to travel further including abroad at an additional cost.
Are the photographs copyrighted?
Yes. We own the photographs but you will have a full licence to print, copy and share all images. Our rights include the authorisation to use and share your images when required. The full Copyright to your images can be bought at an additional cost.
How much is the deposit?
The deposit for any of our packages is £200.
How many photos do we get?
We believe that quality is more important than quantity. After much deliberation and feedback we believe that anywhere between 250 – 350 images is a realistic amount to receive. Anything more than this normaly results in close duplicates and it can become a task more than a positive experience looking through your images.
Does the weather affect the day?
Our equipment is fully weather sealed and we can shoot in the rain, snow and wind when required.
Do you have photo albums?
Yes we do provide photo albums. However they are much less common now and most images are presented on a Printed DVD or a bespoke USB and presentation box. If you decide you would like an album we use a professional lab to design, produce and deliver our beautiful albums.
