Why should we select you as our photographer?
A lot of planning and experience is required by a wedding photographer to get all the shots that are needed to properly tell the story of your day. Make sure you pick a photographer you can trust because he or she will make or break your whole day.
It is very important to shop around and find one that suits your style. It would be a good idea to view more than one so you can see a comparison of styles. The photographer should enlist the help of the best man and bridesmaids to help round up family and friends for photographs on the day. Make sure that they are aware that this is part of their duties.
Make sure to tell all your family in advance that they will be needed for photographs otherwise they’ll go off to the pub. Also don’t let the photographer drag you off to be photographed for two hours, as you will miss much of the day (and remember it is your day). Try and Relax when being photographed. You’ll be smiling a lot on the day, so the secret is to wait until the last moment before that lovely smile – this way you shouldn’t have jaw ache come the end of the day.
If you wear glasses change the lenses to non reflective glass so you can see your eyes in the photographs. A final thought is that your wedding day will most likely be an expensive affair. When all is said and done, it will be left to the wedding album to recount the joyous story of the day. There are no second chances after the day, so the photographer you choose needs to have all eventualities catered for..
Can we have creative input into the design of the album?
Absolutely, whatever it may be. David always welcomes ideas and suggestions regarding the designing of wedding albums, and this is now made very easy through our online proofing tool. We make it very easy for our couples to comment on each page of the album throughout the design stage, until they are very happy with the layout, and all the images are perfectly displayed to their taste.
How many images do you take at a wedding?
Every wedding is different, so it’s hard to say exactly. The size of wedding and weather are key factors, but on average around 1200+ images are taken when David is booked. If a second photographer is requested then figure would rise to well over 2000 images.
What style of shots do you take?
We aim to make your wedding day as relaxed as possible, with a mixture of reportage, group shots and formal. Our emphasis is on capturing the emotion, fun, joy and romance in all locations and all conditions.
Do we require more than one photographer?
The advantages of a 2nd photographer are numerous. Two points of view can provide for fantastic moments to include in the album design. Large wedding’s may have many great moments happening at the same time, and a second photographer will enhance the ability to capture all these.
Can anyone buy Images?
We have a ‘client area’ on our website, which is password protected. When all the images are uploaded, we will email you a password which you can share with all your friends and family wherever they are in the world, allowing them to purchase images.
Where are you based, and do you charge a travel fee?
David is based in Dublin, and all packages include travel within 150 of here. We photograph weddings anywhere in Ireland, and internationally, and outside of our free travel area we add a minimal mileage/ flights, and accommodation charge dependent on distance / package requested.
