How many images will we get?
On average we provide anywhere from 500 to 900 fully edited images.
When can we see the photos of our Wedding Day?
We turn around your images in 6 - 10 weeks depending on our workflow at the time.
But this can be slightly longer in peak wedding season and a good deal quicker at certain times of the year.
Here's a rough guide
January > April : 4-6 weeks
May > July : 6-8 weeks
August > December : 8-10 weeks
when is the final balance due?
The balance is due at least a week before the wedding day and can be paid by Bank Transfer or Cheque or bankdraft, If paying cash please let me know and we can arrange it for the pre wedding meeting if that suits or we can make alternative arrangements.
Will there be an online gallery to share with family and friends?
Absolutely, we provide your own private gallery which is password protected.
It’s the easiest way to share your photos with family and friends.
You will also get a online Slideshow.
I live abroad and can’t meet to discuss Wedding Plans, Is that ok?
No problem at all, I can provide all information via email and we can chat via phone, or skype to have face to face meetings at your convenience.
Do you offer images in colour and black and white?
Yes I do, you will receive a mix of black + white and colour images.
Do you take formal family photographs on the day also?
Yes I do, I like to make this as quick and fun as possible, I usually try to get all family combinations photographed in under 10 minutes depending on family sizes.
Will we be a long time taking photographs?
Not at all, I believe it’s so important that the Wedding Couple get back to the party and enjoy quality time with their guests, the photo shoot can be as long or as short as you guys want. I won’t expect you to perform or spend hours posing. Maybe just a short walk around the location.
Do you take photographs of the guests?
Yes I love to capture all those poignant moments, my documentary approach will blend into the events and celebration of your day and you’ll receive a cache of candid shots of your guests.
Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured.
Do we get copyright of our images?
Copyright is complicated but in a nutshell Memento Photography keeps copyright but grants clients the right to do practically anything with their photos with the exception of commercial use, this is standard practice within the Wedding Industry.
DO YOU REQUIRE DINNER?
If coverage continues until the first dance, we would really appreciate some nibbles. When you are eating, we will not be taking photographs, so a quick bite would keep our energy levels up for all the evening dancing.
If we choose an Album how long would we have to wait to receive it?
Albums take an additional 6-8 weeks once your images are chosen. I use suppliers from all over the world so some lead time is necessary. If you want your Album for a particular date, in order to avoid disappointment I advise couples to add 3 weeks on especially if you’re looking for your album prior to Christmas.
