WE’RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. IS THAT OKAY?
Most of our couples feel awkward in front of the camera. So do we! That’s why we prefer to be on this side of the camera. We do know how to get the best out of our couples and after 5 minutes you realise that it is easy as we make it fun.
WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?
Chantal came from a very artistic school in Canada where most have gone on to quite creative careers. Chantal studied photography at school and got her photography and wedding planning diploma in 2009. She then gained her experience through a lot of Italian weddings.
Chantal then taught Scott and ever since they both attend workshops each year to learn.
DO YOU TAKE FORMAL FAMILY GROUP SHOTS?
Yes, we take formal family photos and this is where a great strength of ours lies. We will have organised with your prior to the day on what photos you would like on the day. We normally try to keep this to 30 minutes as to keep the day flowing nicely. We get a lot done in this time as Chantal takes the photos and Scott organises the next one with helpers grabbing the relevant people as they will know faces. We get family photos on both sides, bridal party and friends shots. It’s all kept quite chilled too as this is where some can feel the stress of what feels like herding cats : )
ARE YOU INSURED?
Fully insured with professional indemnity, public & product liability, employer’s liability, property, personal accident, legal protection, the lot! Ideal, and required for the likes of venues that have historic artifacts as most of our venues do being castles, estates and such.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BOOK?
For family sessions a booking fee of £100 is required to book the date then the remaining amount is due by the shoot date itself.
For weddings a booking fee of £600 is required to book the date then a second instalment of £1000 is required 6 months before the wedding date (this helps with our cashflow during the quieter times of year. You can opt out of this if need be) and then remaining is due one month before.
Payments are by BACs/bank transfer but we can also accept payments through Wise. We are also open to trading services or Bitcoin.
All sessions do require you to read and sign an online agreement so we know what we can expect of one another : )
HOW LONG BEFORE WE RECEIVE our photographs?
Both family sessions and weddings can expect a sneak peek within 48 hours.
The remaining images for family sessions is within 4 weeks normally and weddings is 5-7 weeks. Sometimes during the peak season of weddings (April to October) the delivery dates can extend to 5 weeks for family sessions and up to 8 weeks for weddings. We will keep you informed though : )
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO I GET?
We provide all images we can. We typically deliver over 700 images per wedding. We shoot lots on the day but come culling time we take out all the ones where people are blinking or making a funny face or it’s just not a good photo. We will still leave in ones that have a special moment captured even though it’s not technically brilliant it could still be a special moment that you appreciate.
What do we get in our online gallery?
We provide fully processed, edited, and downloadable printable high resolution jpeg images and web size for sharing easily online.
We strive to give you the option of both colour and black & white but some suit black & white and not colour and visa versa.
DO YOU OFFER EXTRAS LIKE ALBUMS, PRINTS OR ARTWORK?
DO YOU DO OTHER PHOTOGRAPHY?
We do business headshots, branding and are open to all sort of other ventures so get in touch.
WE WANT TO TAKE PHOTOS IN A CERTAIN PARK OR CASTLE. DO WE NEED PERMISSION?
Depending on the place and what we are photographing, you may need permission. Any of Glasgow or Edinburgh City’s parks require permission if you are using it for wedding photographs and it is the responsibility of the couple to obtain this from the council.
Castles are much the same so it is always best to check beforehand as if we do not have permission we can be asked to leave. We do not want that to happen.
