Frequently asked questions
Is this your full time job
Yes, absolutely, that’s all I do. I must say, I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful job, I love it.
How do I book and what is required
Do you work alone
Yes, I work alone. I have photographed hundredths of weddings and I am quite confident in getting all the photographs you need. Prior to the wedding I will run through the schedule of the day with you so that I will prepared and know exactly what needs to happen.
How long after the wedding do, we receive our photographs
What is a sneak peek slideshow
Do I have copyright to my images after the wedding
Yes, you will have full copyright.
How many images do you usually take
I do not cap the number of photographs I take, I am snap happy on the wedding day. Depending on which package you go with, the amount of images ranges from 700 plus.
If I booked the extended package, what extra do I get
The extended packages include coverage from the pre wedding preparations until after the first few dances. I find this takes a lot of pressure off the bride and groom because it gives you time, after the meal to take all those extra photographs you may not had time pre dinner, such as photographs with your aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, work friends, etc. This will also include taking photographs of the speeches, the first few dances, any night time photographs you may want, i.e., outside in the dark with sparkles, bridal suite photographs, etc.
Do you charge a travel charge
No, I do not believe it charging travel, my fee well covers me for travel.
Do I need to pick a specific package on booking
When do we pay the balance
The balance is paid prior to the wedding or on the wedding day, this would be standard industry practice.
Do you have insurance
To use certain public areas for photography it is required to have insurance, so yes, I am fully insured. If you require a copy of my insurance certificate, please do not hesitate to ask.
I would like an album, how does this process work
I see your based in Bantry, do you only cover West Cork
No, I cover all of Munster, people do think Bantry is a long way away from anywhere, but within an hour, I can be in Cork City or Killarney. Annually, I would do 40% West Cork, 30% Cork City, 20% Kerry and 10 other areas. With over 10 years in the business there is very little places I have not been.
Can you cover both the bride and grooms house on the morning of wedding
How would you describe your style of photography
I think my style is a good mix for natural, candid and posed photography. I believe I cover all bases, which helps me create a prefect picture of your day. I am very discrete during the ceremony, where possible, I try not to use flash during the ceremony, you will hardly notice I am there. I believe in putting my couple an ease, making the whole experience as relaxed and as joyful as possible.
