SOME HANDY INFORMATION
IT’S GOING TO BE FUN!
Let your guard down, we are all in this together. I will not make you pose in uncomfortable positions, I will not make you do anything you are 100% happy with, and most importantly, I will try not be the awkward third wheel.
I DO NOT SHOW YOU OR GIVE YOU UN-EDITED IMAGES
Some photographers will be happy to give you all the RAW (and rough) images of your big day. I do not like to give them for the simple reason that I like to apply the best lighting, bring out the best editing to only show you the best images.
I supply high-res images that you’re able to print and share online. You will be able to print the images up to 11”x14” (approx A3 size). And I will also provide you with web-friendly images so you can share them wherever you want. You will be granted a usage license of images to be used for personal use only.
I do not watermark the images Your images are meant for printing and they are yours. So they will not be watermarked.
There is no limit to the number of images that you will receive, but to give you a general idea it will a minimum of 300 edited photos for weddings, 130 for family sessions, 100 for commercial. But I usually exceed that number by the double!
Your gallery will be available online for up to 12 months (with a reminder sent to your email before it expires), and I keep the raw images for up to two years on three different hard drives (I would have 5 hard drives if I could! – yes, I’ve got attachment issues when it concerns your photos/videos). With that said, you’ll also receive a USB with all images that I strongly suggest you keep (and remember) in a safe place!
I charge 1/3 of the total fee as a booking fee / deposit. This ensures that your date is booked (so I won’t be taking any other bookings that day). Once this booking fee is paid, it is deduced from the total amount (it is NOT an extra fee). The booking fee are un-refundable.
TURN AROUND TIMES
The times between your event and when you receive your photos/video vary depending on how busy the month is. At the busiest times, you may have to count about 6-8 weeks to have your photos/videos back to you. Count 3 weeks extra if you also ordered an album – but in that case, you will receive the online gallery before hand. In the least busy times, count 2-3 weeks.
I am afraid of heights (my mum says that’s why she made me petite…), so if you want a group photo showing off your awesome and snazzy guests, please provide a stable ladder – and someone to hold that said ladder. I will not try to climb on dangling hamoc or something; sorry!
