Two things are needed in order to secure your wedding date, a retainer of 30% and a signed agreement. Both are completed electronically and payment is available via credit card – Visa and Mastercard. Until both of those are received the date is not secure. Limited spots each year due to availability.
With weddings 6 hours and over I include a complimentary engagement session. As it is added at no cost I do not then offer a reduction in rate if it is not used. It’s an extra that I add on to help to get to know and work with my clients beforehand. Some clients do use it instead for rehearsal coverage with is perfectly fine with me!
Yes, every image is professionally colour corrected and balanced for a consistent look. All editing work is done in house for full control. The images on the Blog are exactly what you can expect, vibrant, sharp and contrasty images. Black and white treatment availble upon request.
From Friday through Sunday I require a minimum 4 hour booking, coverage 4 hours and longer means that I can provide the type of service and coverage to give a well rounded and complete experience for my clients. Weekday coverage is available from 1 hour and up.
Of course, I get one or two couples a year who ask for privacy and this is never a problem simply let me know and I can amend the agreement to reflect the request (there is no fee associated with this).
If you are a resident then a local bank transfer is the easiest but of course cash and cheque’s are always welcome. Credit cards are also no problem, Mastercard or Visa. PayPal is also an option. If you are overseas and would like to wire the funds contact me for the details.
The Bermuda sun can be harsh up until later afternoon, generally I tell couples the later the better. During peak summer it is still light past 8pm which allows for a later ceremony if desired. Do bear in mind though that at 4pm in the summer months the sun is still very high and hot, nice why a 6pm ceremony can work better! In the Spring and Autumn months the ceremony can be easily coordinated with a lovely crisp evening in the final hour of daylight.
You sure can, all wedding clients receive an image release granting them permission to make prints and use the images for personal use.
Keeping things simple is key. It’s not always an easy thing to do but it helps so much in the planning and execution. Limiting travel and locations goes a long way to helping the day flow and maximizing my time with you. Ensuring plenty of rest and a good lunch on the day is also very important!
Prints purchased through the online gallery are always going to be superior to typical consumer labs, here’s why:
- Print orders are received by me and placed through my US partner lab. It is a professional lab with a very high quality output. Their equipment is closely calibrated to ensure consistency and color accuracy. Guaranteed quality!
- Superior Fuji or Kodak papers with several choices in paper types – lustre, metallic etc.
- Convenience, with a simple ordering process your order is placed and delivered to you within a couple of weeks, anywhere in the world.
- Free retouching.
- Numerous mounting, backing and framing options along with protective coatings that aren’t available in local labs.
Absolutely, anywhere in the world. No problem.
Second shooters can be a great addition for larger more complex wedding plans. When there are multiple locations involved and maximum coverage is needed then a second shooter is perfect to ensure everything is captured for your special day! That said I very rarely work with a second shooter and unless specifically noted everything on the Blog is by just me.
