Liverpool Wedding Photographers

How far in advance do I need to book with you?

We tend to get booked from 18 months to 2 years in advance! But you never know, some dates aren't as popular as others so always best to enquire here

How would you describe your photography style?

We shoot documentary style so our work is very candid, with very minimal staging and it has a real natural vibe. Our couples love how laid-back and chilled out we are on the day, it really helps to avoid any extra stress on the day.

How would you describe your working style?

Laid-back and fun, we like to enjoy the day too, and like to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed with us. Once you break that ice, it's all smooth sailing!

How many weddings do you photograph in a year?

We limit ourselves to 40 weddings each year, so that we can give our couples the dedication that they need before, during and after their wedding. That way couples get our time and attention, rather than feeling rushed.

Do you use any lighting equipment?

We are primarily natural light photographers, however we do bring with us some flash guns for some creative work in the evening and also during the winter months, and for use in darker venues. We don't angle the flash directly at people, we use diffusers and angle the flash towards the ceiling.

Where are you based?

Merseyside, but we travel across the UK for weddings and even shoot a few abroad each year!

What packages do you offer?

We have four very different packages to choose from. Not every couple want the same thing, so we like to offer a good variety of packages. To access this info, drop us a line here

How much of a deposit do you require and when is it due?

We take a £500 booking fee, which is due at the time of booking along with your contract and booking form. Your remaining balance is then due 6 weeks before the wedding date.

How many images will we receive?

This can vary from wedding to wedding, most of our packages suggest a minimum of 800 images from the day.

Can I see an example of a complete wedding album?

We have images on our blog page located here, however if you wish to see an example of one of the wedding galleries in full, we are more than happy to send you a link with our couple’s consent.

May I contact previous customers for references?

You can, unfortunately, due to GDPR we cannot supply you with past clients information, but if you know someone who's wedding we've shot before, I'm sure they'd be happy to give you the info! We do have a review section on our website which our couples are happy for us to share, which you can view here.

Although you have the copyright, can I print my own photos from the wedding gallery?

Yes! Please do! with all of our images the couple have printing rights, so there are no additional charges from us for printing your own images. We do offer the facility to order prints through your gallery, but you can download them and print them wherever you choose. We always recommend somewhere of a good standard, so that your prints don't fade with time.

What do you think distinguishes your work from that of other photographers?

Our working style is very informal, laid-back and natural, we like to have fun with our couples and their guests. This reflects in our images which are usually filled with laughter or natural emotions which shows that people are comfortable enough with us to be themselves.

Do you have a portfolio I can view?

We have a portfolio page for you to view here

What type of equipment do you use?

We both shoot on Canon cameras, we both shoot with Canon 5D mkiiis. We use prime lenses as they work best with our creative approach and work best in low light conditions!

Do you shoot in colour and black & white?

Our editing style includes a combination of colour images and black & white. Sometimes moments just need the colour removed to really work.

Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?

Our couples are usually happy with us having full creative control of how we shoot. However, if we know in advance of any particular events, we are more than happy to document them. We are also more than happy to capture a few family portraits which we will ask for prior to the wedding.

What information do you need from me before the wedding day?

About 6 weeks before the wedding, we will send you a pre-wedding questionnaire to find out about all of your vendors, timings, locations etc and we will have a chat with you closer to the date to finalise all of details.

Are you the photographers who will shoot my wedding?

Yes, it's always Ant and Kimmy, we are always the two main photographers, we will sometimes bring along assistants or second shooters but we will always discuss this with our couples first.

Do you have backup equipment? What about a backup plan if you (or my scheduled photographer) are unable to shoot my wedding for some reason?

We have backup equipment with us, which we will bring to your wedding. In the incredibly unlikely situation that we are unable to photograph your wedding, we are in a very privileged position to be a part of several large networks of local photographers, who will be more than happy to stand in for either of us.

If my wedding site is out of your area, do you charge a travel fee and what does that cover?

All UK weddings are inclusive of travel costs, however for weddings more than 2 hours from Merseyside, we may request cover for the cheapest local accommodation so we don't have to have a big drive home all tired after the big day.

Are you photographing other events on the same day as mine?

Not at all, once you have paid your booking fee and signed your contract, that day is officially yours and nobody else can book it.

How will you (and your assistants) be dressed?

We both dress smart- casual. Ant tends to wear chinos with a plain shirt/t-shirt, Kim wears tea dresses with tights and flat shoes/boots. Any assistants we have on the day will be dressed similarly.

Is it okay if other people take photos while you're taking photos?

We are happy for guests to take photographs, but we usually ask for us to photograph alone during formal group portraits and couple portraits. We also request that we are the only professional photographers shooting on your day.

What time will you arrive at the site and for how long will you shoot?

We arrive 2 hours before the ceremony to cover preparations and then we are with you until around 9pm.

If my event lasts longer than expected, will you stay? Is there an additional charge?

We are happy to stay longer than expected, however we would prefer to know of this in advance. We understand that wedding days can sometimes run over time. We do charge an additional £200 per hour if our couples request it.

Can I customise a package based on my needs?

We are happy to discuss any customisations you might have, from adding albums to alternative coverage and destination weddings. You're best off contacting us for a proper chat about it. You can do that here

Do you include engagement photos in your packages?

Our two top packages include pre-wedding shoots, if you're booking one of the other two packages, we can add these on at an additional cost of £250.00

What type of album designs do you offer? Do you provide any assistance in creating an album?

Two of our packages package is solely based on photography and digital images, this helps eliminate additional upfront costs. But we do have two packages that include the album cost, as some people like to know the full cost upfront, when they know that they definitely want an album.

You can see album details here

Do you provide retouching, colour adjustment or other corrective services?

We have our own distinctive editing style, this usually includes minimal adjustments to people's physical appearances, but we can remove objects that are distracting from within the image. For more extensive retouching we can offer this at an additional cost by outsourcing to a professional retoucher.
