What would you like to know?
How many hours do we get you for?
The Packages on my site are simply what is often asked for. Everything can be adjusted to fit your day.
The half-day package is based on 4 hours and a full day is based on up to 8 hours. Extra time can be added to a full-day package if necessary.
You decide when your time starts and ends. We can advise on what we believe will work best. Additional time can be added at £100 before the day or £150 on the day.
Bespoke packages can also be agreed if you would like something different from the above.
How many images will we receive?
Every wedding is unique, much depends on the size of your wedding and the photography package you choose but we usually supply between 400-800 edited hi-res images.
How long after the wedding until we receive the pictures?
Your online gallery will usually be sent to you within 28 days, though it may be a little longer in busy periods. I will keep you updated and I send a preview over within a few days of your wedding. A preview will be sent over usually within 48 hours after your wedding!
Can we print images from our USB?
Yes – you can make prints from your digital copies and friends and family can order prints and other products through the online gallery.
Do you require some food & drink on the day?
Yes please, for bookings of more than 4hours we would like some refreshments during the day to keep us at peak performance.
Are you covered by professional insurance?
Yes, we make our living from Wedding Photography and have public liability and professional indemnity insurance. We use professional cameras and lenses and have spares of everything should any of our equipment fail.
Are there any additional costs?
Travel costs may apply – please ask for details. There is no VAT to be paid on any products.
How do we book you?
Popular dates are often booked 18 months in advance, so please get in touch as soon as possible so we are more likely to be available for your special day. To secure your date please fill in and return our booking form together with payment of the £350 non-refundable deposit.
When do we need to pay?
A non-refundable deposit of £350 is needed to secure your booking and the rest of your balance must be paid eight weeks before your wedding day. The total balance is non transferable & non refundable.
Do you need to meet us?
If you feel that this would be useful, we would be happy to arrange to meet before your wedding. However, if this isn’t possible, because of time or distance, a phone call works just a well. We meet only about 20% of our clients before the day. Meeting before hand makes no difference to the quality of images taken.
What if the weather is bad on our wedding day?
You are still gong to be getting married, wearing your special outfit & surrounded by your favourite people so come rain or shine its going to be a great day and the photos will capture all the emotions and special moments giving you lovely memories whatever the weather! On a practical note I am happy to go out in the rain to take pictures if you are, having some spare shoes / umbrellas with you this makes it a lot easier & If you don’t fancy going outside we will find a covered area or space with lovely light inside your venue.
What if you are ill ?
Thankfully this has never happened. However, we know that it can occur l (we once covered a wedding for a photographer who was ill). For your peace of mind, if one of us is unable to attend your wedding, we have a network of highly-capable wedding photographers who can assist.
Equally we would recommended that you take wedding insurance should you have to cancel the day at the last minute for any reason.
Do you give us our images in colour or B&W?
You received a mixture of colour & B&W unless requested in advance. Some photographs suit colour best and others really work best in black and white. Each photograph is individually edited & I try my very best to ensure every images is edited to looks its best.
If you have a particular preference ( for example you don’t want any B&W images) please request this before we do your edit, after your edited photos are supplied you can request further editing at an additional cost.
Can we have the Raw Files ?
Short answer – not really – Take a look at the blog post about this here for more info. https://www.bethanyclarkeweddingphotography.com/can-we-have-the-raw-files/
Can we have some groups shots? we don't see many in your portfolio
Absolutely! You can have group shots of the special people in your life. Parents and grandparents like to have these! Generally, on such an exciting day, people do not like waiting or posing for longer than necessary so we make this element as relaxed and quick we are able so you have as much time as possible to enjoy yourselves. Every family is different so we ask you to decide in advance what group shots you want. You can fill this out on our booking form.
Will we own the copyright ?
Copyright is a complicated and frequently misunderstood phrase.
The Photographer always owns the copyright – but you have rights too use the images freely for personal use. So you can make prints, share with family, make an album for you mum, share on social media etc
-Basically you cannot sell any of the images for profit – for example if one your other suppliers wanted to use one of my images for an advert you would not be able sell It to them (for profit)- however because its a private event I would have to get permission from you before agreeing to sell or use any image other than for my own website / marketing. Im usually happy for any other suppliers to us my images free of charge but with appropriate credit.
If you have a google you will find some stuff to read about this …
Can we share the images on social media?
Yes please do share away – we love for your friend and family to be able to enjoy the images too but please do credit us with a link to our website or social media accounts.
