HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK OUT?
I book out 1.5 - 2 years in advance for weddings and more so for summer weekend dates. Getting in touch sooner than later is advisable and will avoid disappointment. It is only when a deposit is paid that my availability will be secured.
WHAT DEPOSIT DO YOU REQUIRE?
For weddings in the same year as the booking I require 50% deposit. For weddings, the following year or later a 30% deposit is required. The remaining balance is then to paid 5 days after the wedding.
DO YOU SHOOT UNUSUAL WEDDINGS? SAME SEX WEDDINGS? TATTOOS WEDDINGS? ANYTHING IN BETWEEN WEDDINGS?
DO YOU NEED TO VISIT THE VENUE BEFORE THE WEDDING?
It is not necessary for me to view the venue before the wedding. I have filmed at hundreds of locations so I am familiar with how the day will run. If you are having a videography package, depending on the time of the year, my availability and location I may sometimes visit the venue in order to capture some video with the drone in good weather!
WILL YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER ATTEND?
Usually not, if your wish is to have one, I can provide one as an extra although. I am completely confident shooting weddings solo. However, that said I sometimes may bring with me an assistant on the day.
WILL YOU HELP US MAKE DECISIONS IF NECESSARY?
Yes, it is my responsibility to educate you in how I can help you help me. Simple decisions made early can help improve filming on the day.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, fully insured for all aspects.
ARE YOU BRINGING BACK UP GEAR?
Always. I have back up camera gear and back up audio gear.
WILL YOU PROVIDE RAW FILES?
No, sorry. For photographs, all images go through the editing processes and are converted into jpeg files so you can view them anywhere. However, all the unedited video files recorded on the day I make available on a hard drive.
WE STILL WANT A COUPLE OF FORMALS AT OUR WEDDING ALTHOUGH WE DO NOT BELIEVE IT TO BE PARTICULARLY TRADITIONAL IN GENERAL. IS THIS OK?
Yes of course it is :) I will advise with genuine appreciation for you and your guests. If you can provide a shot list and designate someone to gather the guest’s formal shots will run more smoothly.
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS, PRINTS AND OTHER PRODUCTS?
No, I do not provide albums. All images will be delivered on a USB or via file sharing.
