FAQs

Do you travel for weddings?

Of course! We have two branches, one in London and one in Bristol and we are happy to travel anywhere in the UK and abroad. In fact, we cover Destination Weddings, if you are thinking to get married in Europe or anywhere else in the world, just get in touch to receive a quote, we will be more than happy to discuss all the details with you.

We chose you, what will be the next step?

It's very simple! We will just ask you to transfer 30% of non refundable deposit to secure the day and to sign our wedding contract.

Do we sign a contract?

Sure! It is essential to protect both parties. You will receive the contract once you have sent a booking confirmation e-mail and paid for the deposit.

Who will be taking pictures at the wedding?

We are a team of two wedding photographers, so it will be both Benni and Carol who will take care of your wedding pictures on your day. We also offer mini packages options and in this case you will have the coverage of only Benni, our senior wedding photographer. In special occasions, we may customise a bespoke package with Benni taking pictures on her own. If this is something you want to discuss about, just get in touch!

Will you take formal group shots?

Yes of course! We normally ask you to provide us with a list of the group photos you would like to have on the day. We ask you to stick to 10 groups max. From our experience, it's best if you nominate a person (usually the best man or maid of honour) that will help us to gather people in order to speed up the process as much as possible, no one is really a big fan of posing for ages!

I don't feel comfortable in front of the camera, how will you deal with it?

This is really not a problem (and probably the most asked question ever!). We are two very easy going persons and we proud ourselves to being very sensitive and able to make everyone feel at ease in front of the camera. There hadn't been a single occasion in which we did not manage to make our couples feel relaxed and enjoy their 20 minutes of pictures, so we are very confident when we say, not a problem, we will all have so much fun! Also, for most of the day you will hardly notice us, we try to be as discreet as possible and to blend in with all the other guests. If you still feel you need a little bit of an ice breaker, we do offer pre wedding photoshoots. You will have the chance to see how we work and you will learn a few tips to stay in front of the camera, but mostly you will see that there is nothing to worry about, it will all come so natural!

Will I be able to purchase an album?

Of course! To keep it as simple as possible, we integrated the option of the album in two of our packages. You can choose either a Coffee Table Album or a Lay Flat album. They are fully customisable and you can choose material and colour of the cover. If you want to purchase an album after you have seen your wedding pictures, that is not a problem, we will provide you with the best quote for your needs.

Do you photoshop the images?

Yes! As you can see from our portfolio, the post production part is a great deal of our job. We adjust colours, exposures, we add that little bit of extra thing that will make your pictures unique, we also may delete objects and disturbing things from the background. What we really do not do, is to make you taller or shorter or slimmer or bigger. We photograph the day as it unfolds naturally in front of our eyes and especially we photograph all the perfections and the imperfections that come with it and that make it uniquely yours. If you like what you see on this website, then we are the right photographers for you. If you are looking for a more staged static look, we may suggest to look around a bit longer.

Do you do wedding videos?

No, but we met along the way so many amazing videographers that we are more than happy to recommend! Recently, we have also started to add a little bit of movements to our pictures by creating some GIFs from the day. If you like the effect, just let us know and we will make sure to add this little extra bit to your day as well.

Will you give us all the unedited photos?

Nope. You will receive up to 800 professionally edited photos of your day, sometimes we end up delivering more, maybe because the wedding has many special events to photograph, the guests are many and there is simply so much going on that we just have to take many pictures. So adding those extra thousands not quite perfect images is unnecessary. Most of them will be almost duplicates, with just the wrong face at the right time or test shots to adjust the settings of our cameras. Be reassured that we spend a lot of time selecting photos and we always make sure to pick up and edit the most perfect ones.

Shall we provide you with some food on the day?

Yes please, that would be very kind of you! We normally take our break while you guys have your meal since people are not big fans of us taking pictures of them while they are just relaxing and wanting to eat in peace. We will of course be always vigilant and usually not far from the wedding breakfast room, so we can supervise the situation and take pictures of whatever is needed. Every venue has its own policy for food, they will be able to let you know how they normally behave with photographers meals.

Is it ok if I send a list of photos I want you to take on the day?

Is it ok if I send a list of photos I want you to take on the day?

Sure it's ok, just bear in mind though, that it will not be a check list. We will use it to be aware of certain shots you would like to have, but we will not stick fully to it if it does not reflect our style of photography. We have a blog that we update almost every week and a Pinterest account and you are more than welcome to send over examples of pictures you have in mind from our personal work. In this way you will be sure we definitely are on the same page!
