frequently asked questions

HELPFUL INFORMATION

WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE?

We both studied to Degree level in photography & Art at Edinburgh School of Art and Napier University for a total of 9 years years and then went on to work in wedding photography, teaching and coaching. Brian has worked as a wedding photographer for over 20 years specialising in a natural, relaxed reportage style . Paula teamed up with Brian as a second shooter 7 years ago when they got married and they haven’t looked back since!

HOW DO YOU COVER YOUR WEDDINGS?

We shoot as a team on wedding days, starting the day with Paula meeting the girls to cover their getting ready preparations and Brian meets the boys for a pre-ceremony shoot. Our approach is natural, light-filled and contemporary to tell the story of your day without being intrusive. You will hardly know that we are around for most of the day, but we will give you a little direction during the taking of your ‘couple photos’ if you feel you need to be offered a few suggestions. We will always use what natural natural light is available whether that be in the mountains of Perthshire or a City Centre, even if your wedding is in the depths of a Scottish Winter!

DO YOU TAKE MORE FORMAL FAMILY & GROUP PHOTOS?

Yes, of course we do but we suggest that you limit these to 10 to 12 group photos as we don’t want to keep you away from your other guests for any longer than is necessary !

HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL FOR A WEDDING?

We travel all over the country and overseas! But, you will understand that we do have to charge for travel/time expenses if your wedding is further than 50 miles from Crieff.

WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING DURATION ON A WEDDING DAY?

Our full day packages includes 9 hours of coverage from 2 hours before the ceremony to usually include up to the 2nd dance in the evening. We can also offer you extended evening coverage if you would like lots of photos of your evening celebrations too.

DO YOU TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS DURING THE MEAL?

Not usually, as we like to give you and your guests a break from the cameras and allow you to have your meal without any distractions. Understandably, we also need a break for dinner too as well as to prepare a few ‘rush’ photos for you which we will let you see on our ipad Pro while you and your guests are enjoying your coffee after your meal.

IF PAULA IS CAPTURING THE GIRLS GETTING READY DOES BRIAN PHOTOGRAPH THE BOYS DOING THE SAME?

He can do, usually though Brian only photographs the boys getting ready if they are at the same location as the girls. Otherwise Brian will meet the boys at the wedding venue for a pre-ceremony photoshoot and to capture photos of the guests arriving.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes, we are fully insured by one of the largest photographers insurance companies in the UK.

WHAT DO WE DO IF WE WOULD LIKE TO ENQUIRE FURTHER?

That’s easy, all you have to do is to complete our contact form and submit it to us. We can then arrange to meet you, treat you to coffee & cakes then give you loads more information about how we cover our weddings (and show you lots of our other work which we don’t have enough room for on our website!).

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR PACKAGES?

2 photographers all day.

Pre-wedding photoshoot.

As you will see from our Prices page we have a number of options that you can choose from. But, to give you an idea of what is included in our most popular digital package we provide you with 400-500 high-resolution photographs on a bespoke USB (these are little glass bottles with the cork as the USB, have a look on our Facebook page for examples!). Each USB is shared with you in a hand packaged wooden box, along with a selection of exhibition quality prints from your wedding gallery.

Your photos will also be available to you and your guests in a secure online gallery, so you can easily share them with your friends and family! We will also enable the online gallery to allow your guest to order any prints that they would like (which saves you from becoming either a ‘digital photo file’ or ‘print distribution service’ as loads of your guests will want these from you after your wedding!).

We also hand re-touch each and every photo in your gallery, this allows us to provide you with the most natural looking photographs.

HOW LONG AFTER OUR WEDDING WILL I BE ABLE TO VIEW MY GALLERY?

As we take great care to hand re-touch all of the photos in your gallery it does take us a few weeks to get the final gallery to you. Although we only accept a limited number of weddings each year, during the Summer months it may take 4-6 weeks to let you share your full gallery with you. But, we always provide you with a few ‘rush’ photos the day after your wedding day so that you can share these with all your guest and possibly some of your friends & relatives that maybe couldn’t make it to you big day!

DO YOU OFFER WEDDING ALBUMS?

Yes, we design wedding albums and these can be chosen separately either at the time of booking (we will bring some examples with us when we meet you), or after your big day once the dust has settled! We only supply the very highest quality albums which are prepared by our European multi-award winning design team.

Hope all this helps…!
