These are just a few of the most frequently asked questions…
How do I know that your Studio will give me an album to be proud of?
We have photographed weddings for more than 30 years, and many people speak highly of us, including many of the top hotels in the area, such as Chilworth Manor, DeVere Grand Harbour, Botleigh Grange, and many others.
Our display albums will show you photographs from whole weddings, not just the best from different weddings.
On your special day, you will have the undivided attention of our photographer in order to create that unique collection of images of your memories, presented in a beautiful album for you to treasure, and that you will definitely be proud to show your friends.
How are you different from other photographers?
We believe in the friendly and personal service of yesteryear but incorporating the latest in design, product and technology. Therefore, we will guide you, but no high pressure sales. So, you get to choose,
- the number of images you might like to have to cover those memories of your day
- the style of photography, whether journalistic, traditional, contemporary, or a combination of all three – whatever your choice, we’ll help make your day fun!
- the final layout of your images will be available for your approval before finishing, so that any final adjustment can be made to get your album just right.
- the way your photographs are presented, whether you prefer an album or book.
…and we will make it easy to pay for what you want to have with our Interest Free Monthly Payment Scheme.
Can we have black and white, sepia or special effect photographs?
Yes! We’ll photograph everything in colour for maximum flexibility, and then we can adapt the image accordingly. If you have something particular in mind, let us know and we’ll see what can be done.
How many photographs will you take?
We will take an unlimited number to cover every aspect of your day, depending on the coverage you chosen, giving you lots of choice of images for your personal collection.
How long will it take to do the group photographs?
That depends entirely on the number of groups you’d like photographed, but we are renowned for working quickly, so your day is thoroughly enjoyable.
How do my friends and relatives view and order the photographs?
Your photographs will be uploaded to our user-friendly online ordering system for your friends and relatives to view. They will have the password that is unique to your wedding day to enable them to place their order for copies of memories of your special day.
Do we have to guarantee to buy a minimum number of photographs?
You can have as few as 20 photographs in your album, although you may find it difficult to restrict yourselves to that number as we know you’ll be spoilt for choice! Contemporary Albums can easily hold more than 120 photographs, and Designer Albums and Coffee Table Books can hold even more. You choose the combination of coverage, images and album styles that suit you.
How can I get a price list?
You can send us an email or call us on 023 80 579 579 and we’ll be pleased to post it to you.
Are there any travelling charges?
A reasonable distance from the Studio is included in the Deposit, and this includes venues as far afield as Highcliffe, Winchester and Fareham. Even if your venue is outside of our inclusive distance, the travelling charges are very reasonable. We’re happy to go as far as you like, having had enquiries from the South of France, Belgium and Canada, to name a few.
How do we book?
All we need is the completed booking form which you can request via email or telephone, and a deposit of £300. Many weddings are booked up to 2 years in advance, and bookings are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so do it quickly!
When do we pay for our photographs?
Having paid the deposit of £300 at the time of booking, the balance is due 8 weeks before the wedding. Many prefer to set up a standing order payment to spread that over a number of months.
After the wedding, you pay for any additional images you decide to add into the album, and we can offer interest-free payments and longer-term credit for those additional images.
