This is a completely new and unique way of displaying your entire wedding in one large frame. All your photographs are arranged to create one big picture!
Unlike conventional signing frames, this is made up after your wedding. Your guest's messages are copied from your guest book, wedding cards etc. They're then superimposed over or around your favourite image in a variety of colours.
How many pictures will we receive?
Do you do airbrushing/Photoshop?
I've seen a lovely photograph in my bridal magazine, could you do something similar?
How far do you travel?
What happens if you're ill on our day?
Are you insured?
What happens if the camera breaks?
Do we get copyright?
How many photographers will come to our wedding?
The simple answer is, "As many as I take". I don't like to limit the amount of photographs as I want to feel free to record your day in in full without restriction. I do edit out some images.
Yes, unlike many photographers, I'm highly qualified and very skilled in image manipulation. All the images you receive after your wedding are processed to ensure they look natural and you are able to relive your day in every detail and see everything as it was captured. Further processing, such as opening eyes, adding confetti, removing tattoos, vignetting, black and white conversions etc. is all available and is usually included in the price of albums, prints and wall art.
Probably. I love to experiment and try new ideas and I'm completely open to suggestions, in fact it's important that I get to know what you like and don't like. Many wedding photographs used in the media are staged using models, special constructed sets which wouldn't be practical to set up at a real wedding.
Most weddings are in North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley but I've often travelled to Cumbria, York, Durham, Newcastle and Scotland. There may be a small charge to cover expenses for traveling more than 40 miles from Northallerton.
Firstly it would have to be something very serious that prevent me from making it to your wedding. If such an event occurred I have several backup plans that would help to ensure that your wedding is covered. I'm a member of a local network of other professional wedding photographers that have agreed to cover for each other in an emergency. I'm also a member of both the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP). Both BIPP and the SWPP would help find a replacement.
Yes, of course! I'm covered for both public liability and professional indemnity. I'd also recommend that you take out wedding insurance, it's inexpensive and maybe a lifeline if something unexpected happens.
Simple. I switch to another one! As well as several backup cameras, I carry backups for pretty much everything else too. The cameras I use store images on two memory cards, so even if one fails, there's still a contingency.
Almost but not quite. You will be licensed to use the images pretty much as you wish. The only restriction is that I ask that you not to use them comercially without checking with me first. This is because I'd like to ensure any images displayed publically look there very best. If you would like me to send any images to your other wedding suppliers or to the local paper, just let me know and I would be happy to arrange this.
Usually just me, but I'm able to bring in other qualified photographers if required. Working alone ensures that I remain unubtrusive and more able to capture natural images as they happen without assistants, second shooters and their equipment getting into the background. I believe your photographs should tell the story of your day without intrusion.
