Second Glance Weddings
Choosing your Wedding photographer is a massive decision and one that we hope we can help you with.
Over the years, we have shot numerous weddings and have developed a style that is relaxed and unobtrusive, capturing the un posed, intimate moments of the day.
Before we get to the Wedding we will of course spend time talking to you, to make sure that you get the very best out of what is of course your day.
By getting to know you, how you met, what is important to, we can be sure to capture those special moments and create some wonderful memories for you, your family and friends.
We do of course have a contract to protect both of us and will go through this in detail when we meet face to face.
All of our images are totally copyright free and are yours to use and share as you please.
Some of the Frequently Asked Questions that we get include;
How do we book you?
To start with use the Contact form on this site, or call on 07808 829900. To secure your booking we need a non-refundable retention fee of £150.
Do you stick rigidly to the advertised packages?
No. We are often asked how much we charge for the services we provide and so the prices on this website are indicative of some common packages that we have used in the past. These are a good starting point for you to understand the likely investment. For example if you would like to add an Engagement shoot to the gold package we would be very happy to do that.
How long will you be with us for on the day?
This depends very much on how long you want us to be there. Our longest day started with the Bride preparation at 8am and finished with the First Dance at 9pm.
Do you copyright your images?
No, we don’t. We feel that you have employed us to take photos for you, so the results ought to be yours to use and share as you please, for your own personal use. No reproduction of images may be made without prior permission for commercial use. We will supply you with two digital copies of your images on either DVD, USB or a cloud solution such as Dropbox. The two versions are one for low resolution images for use on social media sites. The second is high resolution for use in printing. Of course, your photos will also be the website, where they will be available for at least 3 months. This gallery can be secured by password if you require this.
Do you charge for travel?
All travel within the MK postcode area and the South Northants council district is included in the cost.
Can we tell you what photos we want?
Yes. When we meet before the event we will run through a list of popular photos. These will include formal photos for people and of course we will also capture the detail of the day. You will have spent hours making decisions about everything from flowers, rings, menus etc. and we will make sure these special elements are recorded for you to remember forever.
If there is something you want that is not our list, then just let us know.
Do you provide prints or albums?
Because we do not apply any copyright to your images we do not get involved in printing or any reproduction of images. However, for an additional £35 an hour plus the cost of printing +10% we are happy to help you create albums and prepare images for print. We cannot though be responsible for a third party printing for example Boots, Jessops, etc. or any online service such as Photobox.
Do you edit the photos you take?
Yes. As professionals, we review every photo we take and make what we feel are necessary edits to ensure consistency and quality. This may also include making some images Black and White. We will retouch photos where necessary. It is possible that on the day of your Wedding, if the sun us very bright then, moving to a shady corner will be the best thing to do to avoid you all squinting. Sometimes these locations can have drain pipes, street signs etc., in them and we will do our best to remove these.
Will you talk to me about the edits?
Yes. We will edit all photos and then present you with images that we feel are of a professional standard. If you then want to talk about changing the images, for example to Black and White, or cropping in on a certain area we will be happy to do that. We will also supply you with up to 5 very high resolution images for larger wall prints
Will you accept special requests?
Yes. If you have any special requests regarding your shoot we will of course do everything possible, within the confines of the agreed time frames to accommodate these.
What about your obligations to us?
We are a professional organisation and take great pride in the service and quality we offer. We take great care to ensure that the likelihood of anything going wrong is minimised. We have back up equipment with us always, spare cameras, flash guns, lens, batteries and of course the relevant public liability insurance. It has never happened yet but the only time we can foresee us not making it to the ceremony is through serious illness or car crash, although if possible we’d still jump in a taxi.
If for any reasons beyond our control we cannot attend, we will of course refund all monies paid in line with the terms stated in our standard contract.
Do you enjoy what you do?
Love it! Every wedding is different, every couple have something unique about their special day and through working with you before the event we hope that we can capture all of those very special moments. Having photographed numerous Weddings, we have developed a sense of what is likely to be happening at any point in the day and often its only when couples see the photos for the first time that recall a particular moment.
