It's not all "Deep Water" with wedding planning!
It's not all "Deep Water" with wedding planning!
Since no two weddings are ever the same, I’ve designed my wedding packages to be as flexible as possible. All wedding packages can be altered to suit your needs and I’ll work closely with you to ensure all requirements are met ahead of the big day.
So whether it’s just a digital only package or a gorgeous album, you’ll be guaranteed to relive the day, over and over again…
All Wedding Photography Packages includes:
- Wedding Day Consultation
- Photographic coverage of your wedding day either as HALF-DAY (less than 4 hours), UNTIL DINNER (photo coverage until dinner is called at reception venue) or FULL-DAY (until 10pm-ish)
- Your very own password restricted website within 6-8 weeks (usually 4 weeks) from your wedding day.
- HIGH RES PHOTOS are uploaded for immediate download, viewing, sharing and printing.
Your photos will remain online for the lifetime of the business.
*Please understand that taking a photograph is only half the job done. Time consuming post production work is utilized to bring out the best qualities of the final photograph.Once you view your gallery, your favourite photos can then be further edited within reason – unwanted blemishes, objects removed, shirts ironed, stray hairs cut, bruised flowers watered and all converted to black & white too.
How did you get here?
In 2001 I graduated with an M.A in Photography Arts at D.I.T and have been working in the industry since. From Agencies to Printers, I freelanced for 6 years eventually setting up Give us a goo photography in 2007 and photographed over 400 weddings at this stage!
Do you do frames or prints?
Yes, I can offer you a variety of frames from traditional wooden frames to acrylic magnets. From desktop prints to large canvas prints. All of these can be ordered online through the gallery.
Can I have black and white and color images in my coverage?
Yeap, you’ll have the option of having black and white, sepia black and white or color images and for those who have the time to sit down with me, I’m always eager to do something new, something different. I’m also open to new ideas that you might have and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.
How many photographers will be at my wedding?
You will always have me as your main wedding photographer to cover the morning till the dinner. If you would really like another photographer present on the day then a 2nd professional wedding photographer can be made available at an additional cost. Contact me further details.
What’s your style of photography?
To have fun, be calm and to anticipate the moments that arise throughout your wedding day. I supply couples with a mix of group shots, creative staged shots (quirky, fun, romantic, moody) and of course the natural moments captured as the day unfolds.
I’m not a press photographer with a trigger finger blindly shooting you in hope of getting the shot. I’m as discrete as possible. I think of my approach like an old friend, to make you as comfortable as possible and manage family and friends in a positive and efficient manner when it comes to getting the shot.
How many images do you take on the wedding day?
As many as it takes! Usually a Full Day would yield up to 800 images from bridal prep to a few songs after the First Dance. If I stayed from bridal prep until dinner then about 550 photos.
Do you offer internet hosting of my images?
Yes. I will host your images online in a gallery to share with family and friends for as long as I’m in business. It’s also possible to create several other galleries for friends, family and workmates that you’d like to share online. All photos are available to download as high resolution files and can be printed online!
Is there an engagement session included in the package?
If required, I can include an engagement session with certain packages. All engagement photographs will be supplied to you via an online password protected website. Choose an engagement image free of charge to print at whatever size you choose, wherever you choose! For an additional fee, I can print & frame the image. Engagement Shoot locations may incur an additional mileage/travel surcharge. Please contact me for further details.
Do we select the photographs that go into our album?
Couples would choose their photos through the website online features. A draft will then be uploaded and the couple are free to suggest as many changes as they would like at no additional cost. Occasionally I get some couples who are too busy to choose their photos thus trusting me to decide.
Do you require a booking fee and if so, how much?
Please note that a non-refundable booking deposit of €250 must be paid to secure your wedding day. The remaining amount must then be paid before the wedding day or on the day itself. The sooner the deposit is paid then the sooner I can guarantee to cover your wedding on that day. There are only so many weekends I can work and it is in your best interest to secure a wedding date as soon as possible.
Tell us a bit more about the albums?
We've some beautiful albums to relive your wedding day. From contemporary to traditional. We have it all.
What happens if we want to cancel our booking?
I require a letter / email confirming that the booking is to be cancelled. The booking deposit is non-refundable. If you’d like to change your wedding date then it’s subject to availability. To transfer your booking we require written confirmation by letter / email.
What happens if a camera fails on the day?
I have another two on my person. Yup, I carry 2 – 3 cameras on me at all times. Each camera backs up to TWO storage cards. The last thing I want is to halt the day to go and get a 2nd camera from the car.
Yeap I have both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance which can be sent to venues if requested.
