1. I'm excited Nicola! How do I book?
Firstly, fill out my contact form with as much info as you can think of (especially the date! I need to know the date!) I'll get back to you and let you know if I'm available; I know its important that you're sure you've picked the right person to cover your day so I like to meet up before booking, either in person somewhere in Halifax or over Skype if you're not local! Then when we're all happy and the decision is made, a deposit payment of £200 will secure the date for you.
2. How long do you stay for?
My full day package is 10 hours, this generally covers prep to first dance, up to 9.30pm.
3. How far do you travel?
The price covers travel within a 25 mile radius of Halifax, so I basically cover West Yorkshire, up to Harrogate and down to Manchester, if you're getting married further afield let me know on the contact form, I may need to add on a little bit extra to cover travel or accommodation depending on how far you need me to go!
4. Do I need two photographers?
I provide the option to add on an additional photographer, this will be another professional experienced photographer who will assist me on the day, this way both sets of prep are included, you get fuller ceremony coverage, and you won't miss out on seeing what your guests are up to while you're having your couples shots done! I love working with a second photographer!
5. Couples shots? Will I have to pose with an awkward smile on my face?
No! I am all about the natural moments; I try and keep the posed/formal/granny's mantelpiece shots to a minimum! At some point during the day I'll whisk you off to a quiet corner and we'll spend a few minutes getting some unposed natural photos of just the two of you.
6. What does 'fully edited' mean? Will you get rid of my double chin?
I select the best photos from your day and edit these in my own special way so they look beautiful as a set and flow well to tell the story of your day. I do minimal retouching on the portraits only, this is generally just to remove any flecks of dirt etc and face food if kids are involved :)
Your double chin is lovely!
7. You are insured yes?
Of course - I have professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
8. What can I expect from a bespoke package?
Sometimes you don't want a big wedding, sometimes you just want a small personal ceremony and dinner with friends; but just because your day isn't following tradition doesn't mean your photos shouldn't be epic! I will look at how many hours of coverage you want, how many guests you're having, where your wedding is taking place and whether you want one or two photographers and put together a personalised quote for you.
9. Thankyou Nicola, you are lovely!
No worries! You are also lovely! Any more questions, feel free to bombard me via my contact form!
