Wedding Photography FAQ

Do you have insurance ?

Yes we have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance

 

Have you been CRB checked?

Yes my wife and I have an "Enhanced Disclosure" CRB form.

 

Do you accept debit and credit cards?

We accept credit and debit cards as well as personal cheque and cash. We can process Visa, MasterCard, Solo, JCB cards, Maestro and Visa Electron using a mobile chip and pin terminal.

 

How do we book?

For a wedding booking a non-returnable booking fee of £150.00 will be required to secure the services of GeatPhoto. The balance will be payable four weeks prior to the date of your wedding. There is also a booking form that needs to be completed and signed.

 

Can you provide video photography?

No, this is a different area of expertise, we only supply photographs. We often work alongside video photographers and I can provide you with contact details of somebody that can provide this service.

 

What happens if you camera equipment fails?

I always work with three camera bodies, several lenses, multiple memory cards, duplicated lighting equipment and so if any equipment does fail, I will have a backup.

 

How far will you travel?

Our wedding bookings are normally within Essex however I am happy to travel further. When we provide you with a price it will always include any traveling costs that we might incur and thus will be an all-inclusive price.

 

When will we see our photographs?

After the wedding I colour correct and enhance the images. Once this has been completed I upload them onto your password protected gallery and email you or a wedding coordinator to advise you of this. I also produce a slide show set to music which I will post to you on a DVD, this can also be made available as a download. I normally complete this process within one week of the wedding.

 

We don't want an album can you supply a disk of images?

For a small charge we are happy to provide a DVD of all of the high resolution images that have been uploaded onto the web gallery and a personal usage licence. (This charge would be included in the wedding price if requested as part of the initial service.) However your wedding day is very special and the cost of an album is a very small percentage of the overall wedding day cost. A printed album will long outlast all other elements of the wedding day, flowers, cake, wedding dress etc. When looking back in thirty years’ time an album will be a treasured possession, a disk of images may not even be readable by then. For this reason we would always encourage you to have an album as well. It need not be an expensive Bellissimo album our photo books are very reasonably priced.

 

When and how is the design of the wedding album finalised?

You select the pictures you would like to see in your album and advise if there are any particular layout requirements. I then make an initial proof for you to view. This is normally via a PDF document. From this first set of layouts you can then decide on any changes you would like to have made and another set of proofs will be produced with your changes. This process continues until you are happy with the layout.

 

What if you are unfamiliar with the church or venue?

I will always visit your church and venue prior to the wedding day perhaps meeting with yourselves or your wedding coordinator. This helps me plan how the shots will be taken and helps me understand if any special equipment will be needed on the day.
