Explain why I should consider you as my photographer.
Since 2006 we have been honoured to photograph and film 500 weddings across Scotland, with everything from very simple elopements to multi-day Asian weddings. We are one of the highest-rated photographers on Google. Our years of experience and outstanding customer service resulted in being awarded Best Photographer in Scotland South East at the 2020 Scottish Wedding Awards. We also consider it an honour to be an approved photographer at many of Edinburgh and Scotland’s best venues, including being a recommended photographer at fabulous Dunglass Estate. We’re humbled to be trusted by fellow professionals to work at these prestigious venues.
Are you insured, and what does the insurance cover?
We certainly are! Our comprehensive insurance includes public liability, professional indemnity, and equipment insurance. We also have separate drone insurance. You should consider taking out comprehensive wedding insurance. It doesn’t cost much in the big scheme of getting married and can cover you for most mishaps.
Is it better to have two photographers?
If you value the total coverage of your wedding day, then yes, two photographers are better than one. Simply put, a single photographer cannot be in two places simultaneously. For our typical pre-ceremony coverage at Dunglass Estate, Jonathon can be photographing the groom getting ready in the cottages while Claire is photographing her bridal party preparations in Sea View House, Jonathon can photograph the boys getting ready at the cottages. For those once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities, two photographers offer the best coverage; during your ceremony in Dunglass Church, Claire can photograph your family and guest’s reactions while Jonathon captures your first kiss as newlyweds. Claire can photograph candid shots of your family and guests enjoying the champagne reception while Jonathon takes care of the newlywed photos around Dunglass Estate. Two photographers aren’t mandatory or always necessary. However, for the best coverage, we recommend our two photographer wedding packages.
How do we receive the photos?
You receive your photos via two delivery methods. The first is via digital download, where you can download your photos and save them to any device. You can even share the download with family and friends. The second delivery method is via our private and secure online gallery. We stopped supplying photos on DVDs, CDs and USB because these are not as convenient. Our delivery is instant and can be shared with anyone you choose as often as you wish. No waiting for the post. No sharing the same CD, DVD or USB drive then waiting for it to be returned to you. And so many devices no longer have a USB port or CD/DVD drive that these formats quickly become obsolete. We keep your downland link active for a minimum of one year, and your gallery is kept active indefinitely, providing you with a reliable backup of your photos at no extra cost for you. Your web gallery is great; you can also order fantastic prints and wall art of your photos directly from the gallery.
How long after my wedding until I receive my photos?
Delivery times can vary from a few days to several weeks, depending on what time of year you get married. After your wedding day, we’ll keep you updated with the editing schedule and as soon as your photos are ready to view, we’ll email you the login details.
Can you provide me with any additional information about your services?
