Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you photograph weddings from other cultures and faiths?

Yes, we absolutely do! We have both grown up in a melting pot of vast religious and cultural diversity and love working with multi-cultural clients or clients that have a different background to us. We gladly entertain enquiries from interested couples that do not happen to be Muslim.

2. How much interaction and influence can I expect from you on my wedding day?

This is a very common question asked by a lot of our clients who really care about having an honest reflection of their wedding rather than a wedding dictated by their photographer or videographer. We expect that up to 90% of your wedding day will go uninterrupted or influenced by us. This ensures that your wedding and the moments we capture for you are a reflection of all the hard work you put into your planning rather a generic formula applied by your photographer. The final 10% is mostly related to taking group photos and your photo shoot where we will use our experience and expertise to ensure you get the most out of each session. Our approach to the photo shoot itself is covered in the next question below.

3. My fiancé and I are very shy in front of the camera and have never done this before. Will you make us feel comfortable during the photoshoot?

We fully understand that this would be a fairly new experience for most of our couples and that’s why your photoshoot with us is designed to bring out your chemistry as a couple and to capturing your first few moments together as husband & wife. We ensure we go at a pace that is comfortable for you both and we work with you to overcome the initial shyness by giving you subtle hints and tips on how to stand in each other’s presence that is both flattering and allows us to capture you in the beautiful ambience of your venue and grounds. Most importantly we want you to remember your photoshoot with us as a fun experience and for your photographs to reflect that.

4. Do you use second shooters and will you send someone else to photograph my wedding?

Absolutely and unreservedly not. One of the core principles of our work is that we retain full creative control over our photography from the decision to take a photograph to the final edit and delivery. This means that we do not employ or hire anyone else to photograph a wedding on our behalf. For us it is extremely important that a client considering our website and portfolio is 100% confident that every single photograph has been taken by one of us and that they can expect a similar standard and style of wedding photography at their event. This is the primary reason why we do not operate as a ‘Studio’ or provide second shooters to photograph under our name.

5. Can we book either of you alone, to work alongside another wedding photographer?

We require that photographic coverage is exclusively assigned to us as this ensures we are able to photograph the wedding in our unique style of documentary wedding photography without having to tiptoe around another photographer. With respect to wedding videographers and cinematographers, we will happily work alongside another professional videographer or cinematographer. We simply ask that you introduce us to each other a few weeks before your wedding, so we can establish an understanding of how we can cooperate during the wedding.

6. Can we ask for our images not to be used in your portfolio?

Yes, however there is a 30% surcharge. This is to ensure that we treat all clients equally and that we do not unfairly prejudice those clients who have kindly agreed to the use of their wedding photographs in our portfolio. Please ensure you request this at the time of enquiry and booking as this cannot be added later.

7. Do you use presets, plugins or filters?

The simple answer is no. We feel that whilst plugins or filters do have the ability to add certain artistic effects to an image, these effects will all come and go with changes in fashions and trends. Our philosophy first and foremost is to capture moments and create wedding memories that will stand the test of time and will be cherished by our clients and their future generations. We also like to ensure each image we provide to clients will have been edited to our style and standards without any shortcuts made through the use of presets and filters.

8. How many weddings do you photograph each year?

We work exclusively with no more 10-15 couples each year. This allows us to approach each wedding full of energy and enthusiasm so that we can utilise the very best of our skill and talents in capturing lifelong memories for our clients.

9. Will you market your services to my guests during my wedding?

Two words… Yuck! and No! We will never ever leave any marketing material or business cards lying around anywhere at your wedding. We believe this is disrespectful to the time and effort our clients have spent on planning and arranging their wedding décor. Secondly, we ensure that we dress appropriately for the occasion, allowing us to blend in and minimise any intrusion for you or your guests. This also means we won’t be wearing any item of clothing that contains our logo or contact details, no matter how big or small.

10. How long before I receive my images?

Images usually take between 3-4 months from the date of the last event to be fully edited and available for viewing in the online galleries. Your contract will state when you should expect to have your images ready by. We also include a penalty in our contracts if any deadline is missed. The horror stories of waiting a year for your wedding photographs won’t happen with us.

11. What are your payment terms?

We require 30% as a non-refundable booking fee to secure our availability for the date(s) requested. The remainder is payable 28 calendar days before your wedding.
