1. WHO WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHING MY WEDDING
David Chrystal plus a 2nd photographer will attend all weddings . Therefore you can be sure that the photography you see throughout the site is representative of our work.
2. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE ILL ON THE DAY OF OUR WEDDING
We are covered by the SWPP to provide a replacement to the professional standard.
3. HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE TAKEN ON THE DAY
It does vary, but somewhere between 250 and 350 is a normal amount for you to look through after the wedding. The variations can be due to the length of time of ceremonies. The time of year with darker colder months, brides will want to spend less time outside and of course the weather, a very wet day can often shorten the time outside and reduce the number of shots taken . The package chosen has no real influence on the number of shots. We approach the photography in exactly the same way, whatever the package.
4. DO WE SEE ALL THE PHOTOGRAPHY FROM OUR WEDDING
All your photographs are subject to editing, this takes a lot of studio time but saves you a significant hassle. Hours can be lost looking through many similar images. Once the blinks and unflatering pictures are removed and a balance of stunning images are storybooked the final number is a more manageable amount. Usually 250 to 350.
5. HOW LONG DO YOU NEED FOR YOU PHOTOGRAPHS
David is extremely efficient and will take the minimum amount of time to get the best results. Having 2 photographers speeds things up as alternative and unusual angles a taken at the same time, by the sencond photographer, while the standard images are taken. We normally take about 50 minutes for our photography at a scenic location so in your plan remember to spend some time with your guests and add on extra time for this. We will give you a timings guide when you recieve your Booking Confirmation, this helps you judge the time of events.
6. WHEN WILL WE SEE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS
We start the editting process usually the night of the wedding. A number of images can be put on our Facebook page fairly soon after the wedding. The priority is getting the selected images editted and sent for printing into the preview book. All this usually takes about 2 weeks and if you have ordered a DVD Slide show this is designed at the same time. Most customers have their images when they return from Honeymoon.
7. HOW DO WE CHOOSE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THE ALBUM
The preview book is your main tool to achieve this, we have a simpe and fun system with coloured spots to help you. Also remember you get about 100 of your wedding photographs in any of our albums, so many of the images are memories forever. You get to keep the preview book which contains all your images, additionally if you have ordered a DVD Slideshow to music this is a great help. Further we give you a small instruction sheet and then book you into the diary to return and discuss your choices.
8. WHEN DO WE GET OUR ALBUM
Option 1 Contemporary albums take about 2 to 3 weeks and the Option 2 Magazine album which are printed in Italy usually 3 to 4 weeks after you return the preview book.
