This is the bit where I try and shed some light on whats involved and hopefully answer some of the fundamental questions you may have?
Are you available for our wedding?
We are generally booked somewhere in the region of 12-18 months in advance. Please fill in the contact form or call to see if your date is available.
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes we shoot weddings all over Ireland and abroad.
Are there any additional travel charges?
For weddings more than a 80km outside Dublin city centre there is a €120 petrol charge. If the wedding is more than 2 hours drive from Dublin then accommodation is required the day before the wedding - a local b&b will do! For weddings outside Ireland I simply charge for 2 nights accommodation and the cost of the flights. Any other incidentals we can agree on in advance.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes a deposit of €500 will secure your wedding date and the balance is due the week of the wedding or at latest on the day.
Most couples prefer to pay by bank transfer but a cheque or cash will also work. All payments are issued a receipt and are Vat inclusive.
Is there a contract?
Yes under the terms of my insurance we must have a contract with every couple. The booking is not complete until the contact is signed & returned.
Are you insured?
Yes I am fully insured with both public liability and professional indemnity cover.
Do you visit the venue beforehand?
I always photograph locations and venues in advance. We are then able to storyboard the day together and agree on various different locations in advance of the wedding. This allows for a smoother flow to the day! Please feel free to have a look at the venues shot to date on my pinterest page.
Do you work on your own?
I stand over my photography, as no one can do it the way I do! For all packages I offer a second shooter who will be able to cover different angles and locations so you get more coverage from your day. This is really worth considering!
How many photographs do we receive?
I spend quite a considerable amount of time going through all the images and editing them down to a manageable number. There will be a minimum of 400 images on the usb but I usually end up giving in the region of 800. All are hi resolution and watermark free.
Do you include post-production work?
Yes I always include post-production work on the images and there is a mix between black & white and colour.
How long after the wedding will we have to wait to see the photographs?
Generally speaking I will have usb of images ready 6-8 weeks after the wedding. However this may take a little longer over the busier periods of the year.
