AS YOU CAN IMAGINE I GET ASKED PLENTY OF QUESTION BY THE PEOPLE THAT HIRE ME. HERE IS WHERE I ANSWER MOST OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I GET ASKED MOST FREQUENTLY…
Where are you based and do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! I am situated in Pembrokeshire, South Wales and I love to travel whether that be in the UK, EUROPE or further afield. There will be a fee for fuel when travelling further than 100 miles and an overall travel & accommodation fee when appropriate.
We definitely want to go ahead, What do you need from us?
Thats awesome, just send me an email at KATIEDESILVAPHOTOGRAPHY@OUTLOOK.COM or call me on 07519992587 and I will send you a confirmation letter with a request for a 25% booking fee to secure your date along with the completed contracts. I will also send you a link to my online booking guide that will take you through the nuts & bolts of what to expect in the weeks and months leading up to your wedding and beyond.
Can we call you for a chat to discuss a few details from our wedding?
Of course you can! I am here to help you as much as I can and I would love to hear from you. You can call me at your leisure on +44 (0)7519 992587
Do you have a contract?
Yes, I do. It protects both parties. You have part copyright included with your photographs so you can do as you wish with them. The contracts will be sent to you via email along with a few other bits from me. Only once you have read and feel 100% happy to proceed, you can sign and send them back to me easily and I can book your wedding date in! <3
Will we meet before the wedding day?
Your wedding is perhaps the biggest & best day of your lives and it is an honour for me to be part of it. My intention is always to create a great relationship with all of my couples which will also play a part in the photographs I capture. So yes I insist we meet up before the big day. The pre wedding shoot is a great way to to meet for the first time.
A Pre wedding shoot…what is that?
The pre wedding shoot is a super cool, fun photo shoot in an amazing location, which helps to break the ice and put you totally at ease in front of the camera. You will absolutely love both the shoot and the photos you will receive after! By doing your pre wedding shoot, my goal is to make you feel totally comfortable and having fun when it comes to taking your pictures on your wedding day <3
I don’t like having my picture taken…How will you deal with this?
The pre wedding shoot is the perfect way! It’s the ideal opportunity to share that time with me in front of the camera and share with me any ways I can help you get the most out of your pictures. If you feel uncomfortable with having your photo taken, well, that’s fine. Most people do. I invite you take take a look at the photo shoots on my website. Pretty much every single couple I have photographed has had the consideration that they do not like having their photograph taken. It’s fine to feel a little discomfort. I promise that a) it will not show in the shots and b) you won’t feel uncomfortable for long. So don’t worry about being a little apprehensive. Allow yourself to feel however you feel. I’ll take care of the rest.My goal is to make sure we are having so much fun just hanging out together that you don’t even notice I’m clicking!
Do you take formal photographs and how do you approach it?
I do several formal group shots. The way that I shoot is to capture moments rather than to shoot for coverage i.e. I don’t shoot to capture everybody at the wedding. I feel that formal shots bridges the gap somewhat and allows for everyone who is at the wedding to be in the photographs at least once…and also gives your parents and grandparents their perfect mantlepiece pictures to treasure!
Will you photograph everybody at our wedding?
Possibly not. As mentioned earlier I do not shoot to capture photographs of everyone at the wedding. If I did this it would compromise my approach which would in turn inform the finished collection. It is absolutely essential that there is clarity around this. I am not a traditional wedding photographer. I consider the way I shoot weddings to be an art form, however pretentious that may sound, and for me to produce for you the kind of work you have seen on my website it is important that I am allowed total direction of all aspects of the photographic process.
Can we get our collection sooner than expected?
I will always endeavour to get your images to you at the earliest possible opportunity that I can, which is 4 weeks. So if at all possible I will then yes they will be delivered sooner. This being said the date that I send to my couples is a realistic time frame for me to edit you collection, especially during busy times so please be patient.
Save the date!
