FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you based?
We’re based in Comber, Co. Down but we regularly travel all over Ireland for weddings. We’re happy to go even further abroad if we’re asked as well! Some areas may require travel expenses, but that would be discussed at consultation.
how long are you with us on the day?
We start shooting usually a few hours before the ceremony starts. We love to film the preparations in the morning! Then we’ll be with you all day right through to the first dance. Usually we just stay until we believe we’ve got enough dancing footage of you and your guests - we don’t set a strict time. If you’ve got something special planned for later in the night like fireworks etc, no problem, we have an add-on for staying late into the night.
How do you capture the day?
Whether for photography or video we use multiple cameras ensuring nothing gets missed. For video we have various audio solutions as well for clean recordings of the ceremony and speeches. The rest of the day we’ll be ninja-like holding our cameras hand-held to get those sneaky candids.
can you shoot both of our preparations?
Short answer - yes! Long answer - this is one of those situations that often requires having two shooters instead of just the one. Being in two places at once is remarkably handy! This can be discussed during your consultation to see if a 2nd shooter would be needed.
ARE YOU LGBT+ FRIENDLY?
Heck yes my friend.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU ON THE DAY?
We would really appreciate getting fed a meal on the day, as while you and your guests are partying and celebrating, we will be working a long 8-12 hour day and will definitely need sustenance! Your venue / caterer will probably have an option for feeding the vendors at your wedding. The best time is usually when your guests are eating, as not much will be happening then anyway. We won't sit with your guests, but find a quiet spot somewhere else so we can take a quick break and backup your photos / footage.
WE’RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR PACKAGES, CAN WE DISCUSS OTHER OPTIONS?
We’ve set our packages based on years of experience and research, resulting in what we think would suit both us and yourselves best. However we’re always happy to hear if you have other ideas. Trying something new is always a fun adventure for us!
Can we meet up beforehand?
Yes please! This helps us get to know each other before the big day, and allows us to explain our process in more detail. We can also have a consultation on the phone if you’re not local to Belfast, where we’re based.
When can we expect our package?
We aim to deliver our photography sessions within 15 weeks, and our film sessions within 25. This may seem like a long time but we don’t want to rush your work. We promise it’ll be worth the wait!
Can we pick the music you use for our film?
This question is more complicated than it may seem. For legal / licensing purposes, popular music cannot be used in any online videos. For these online videos, we purchase music through sites like The Music Bed or Soundstripe, which provide beautiful licensed music suitable for this kind of work. But we know music is important, so we’re happy to chat about your particular taste in songs to make sure you get something you like!
DO YOU DO ALBUMS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY?
Yes, we would just ask that you pick 50-70 photos that you like best for us to make the album with.
Are you insured?
We have equipment, public liability and professional indemnity insurance taken out with PolicyBee. If your venue requires proof of our insurance, let us know and we can sort that out for you.
How do we book / pay?
If you’re keen on booking (yay!) we send you a quote through our online booking system. From there you can sign the contract, fill in a quick questionnaire, and pay your retainer all in one place. Easy peasy!
