Hi there! I would always prefer to meet you in person over a coffee or GnT if you're in Nürnberg (or over Skype if not!) to chat about your plans and expectations for your wedding photography, but maybe you have some burning questions. So scroll down for some answers to a few questions that I am often asked, I hope it is helpful!
What are your prices?
The most popular package I offer is the full day wedding for €1900, head over to my pricing page for more information on what is included. Every wedding is different though of course and the best way for me to discuss rates with you is by going to my contact page and sending me a message! I would love to hear from you!
Can we book you just for the ceremony?
I really love to document the whole of your wedding day so I can provide for you the whole story; the anticipation and excitement whilst getting ready, and the party atmosphere after dinner are very integral to that! However, that said, in the off season or on weekdays, shorter bookings are possible. Simply contact me for an estimate.
How far will you travel?
Based in Nürnberg, Germany I am well located to travel throughout Europe, and especially back to the UK. The only added costs within Germany would be my transportation at €0.30 per km and lodgings if more than 1.5 hours drive from my home. For overseas weddings please contact me for an individual estimate, I can’t wait to hear your plans!
Will all of our photos be edited?
Yes, I love this part of the process! I curate a narrative of your day by selecting the best of the best photos that I took, and then I edit each individually for framing, colour, contrast and exposure to match my style. When you receive the images they will be exactly as I intend them to be, my editing process is a pivotal part of my style and photographic process.
Can you get rid of unexpected skin blemishes?
I prefer to leave the magazine look to full time photoshop professionals, and I don’t offer beauty retouching. However, if a pimple or anything else that wasn’t intended to be in the frame is distracting I can get rid of it yep!
How do we receive our photos?
I will send you an online gallery with all of your images laid out beautifully and categorised into the chronological sections of the day. They will be available to download as soon as I have finished working on them. For full day weddings I also provide a USB. You will receive all images in High Resolution, at least 4000px on the long edge, 300dpi which is large enough to print at 1m.
How long will it take for us to receive our photos?
Weddings will take me 4 to 6 weeks to deliver, engagement or other portrait shoots 2 to 3 weeks.
Will I have printing rights to my photographs?
Yes, you will be free to print your images in any way that you like, and you will have full access to the high resolution files so that you have the highest available quality.
Will you be posting our images on your website and social media?
I ask that I am able to display any photograph taken at your wedding on social media and in advertising, sample albums etc. in order to promote my business. If this is something you would prefer not to agree to, no worries, just let me know and we can discuss it.
How do you work on the day, what’s the process?
I have written some more detailed information about this, including how much time I would recommend for all photography related bits and how I approach your wedding day, here!
Do you photograph LGBTQ+ weddings?
Yes please! no question!
Do you speak german?
I do! Not perfectly, but enough to get by and chat to your guests. I have been living in Germany for 4 years now and I did an intensive course for 6 months at the beginning so it should be good right! Apologies though if my email replies are a bit strange! :)
I am super awkward in photos and don’t like posing AT all..
Perfect! Me too, and I know how you feel. I won’t be asking you to do anything that doesn’t feel comfortable, and my relaxed and natural shooting style means you just have to be you, maybe a little more flirtatious than usual and simply try and forget the camera! I will see and bring out the awesome.
Do you offer family, maternity or baby photography?
My main expertise is in wedding and couples photography, but I do enjoy photographing families and babies when someone enquires who shares the same vision as me. My lifestyle documentary type style focusses on finding the connection between people, so I treat these sessions much like my couple shoots really as they all have the same premise of course, to capture the spark that makes you you! I use only natural light, and usually an outdoors location (although with babies it is usually a home session). Please contact me for an estimate and I will be glad to show you some examples!
We want to book, what’s next?
Great news!! Please send me a message to check my availability, and after we have had a chat and you are certain, I will send you an invoice for a 20% deposit to secure the date. By paying the deposit you also agree to the terms and conditions so please have a read through. The final balance will then be due 2 weeks before the wedding, but we will be in touch many times before then!
