If you have any questions about my wedding photography (or anything else!), that aren’t answered below, please don’t hesitate to email me: email@example.com
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! While many of my commissions are within Brighton & Sussex, I shoot weddings all over the UK.
Recent weddings have taken me far north to the Lake District, the Peak District, Lancashire & Yorkshire, they’ve taken me to the farthest edges of Wales & along the coast down to Devon & Cornwall – plus all points in between.
I’m also happy to travel internationally, please ask for details.
How do we book you for our wedding?
First, get in touch to check if I’m available. If I am, you’ll just need to complete a booking form & pay the £500 booking fee and that’s it, your date will be secured. The booking fee is applied towards whichever wedding photography package you choose. The remaining balance is due four weeks before your wedding.
How do we pay?
I accept bank transfers & credit/debit cards through Paypal.
How many photos do we get?
400-600 for a wedding. However, I don’t impose limits, so if it takes 700 pictures to tell your story, that’s how many you’ll get!
30-50 for an engagement, but again – I don’t impose limits.
When do we get our wedding photos?
Your completed photos will be ready around 4-6 weeks after your wedding (in peak season it’s likely to be closer to 6 weeks). Engagement session photos are usually available sooner.
Can we print photos?
All the edited photos are provided ‘ready to print’ and I recommend you do — photos are meant to be printed and enjoyed!
Do you do wedding albums?
Yes, I do! For further information see the wedding album page, or get in touch.
Can you provide a second photographer?
My partner Heather is also my associate photographer, & often works with me at larger weddings or where dual coverage is required. When she’s not working with me at weddings Heather is a professional food and lifestyle photographer. You can see some examples of her beautiful photography here. Our styles and working dynamic compliment each other perfectly and for a small additional cost we can offer wedding photography packages including both of us.
Do you do group photos?
Absolutely! Whilst I’m predominantly a documentary photographer – I’m more than happy to do group photographs. I suggest keeping the list down to 8-10 groups, to allow us to do them quickly & efficiently, without taking too much time away from your drinks reception. For more information, I’ve written a little guide here: Group Photographs.
Fazackarley… it’s pronounced Faz-ack-arr-lee and it’s my surname, it’s my business name & it’s an old English word, meaning the clearing in/at the edge of the woods, apparently. Although I’m pretty sure most olde English words mean that!
Can you recommend any venues?
I’ve worked at so many venues & they’re all great for different styles of weddings, I’ve put together a few of my favourite venues from the South of England here: Wedding Venues in the South of England
Have you photographed any religious ceremonies?
I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings over the past 13 years & have had the pleasure of documenting a variety of Jewish weddings, Indian weddings, Greek Weddings & lots of Catholic & CoE Weddings. I always thoroughly research and scout ceremonies of cultures and religions that I haven’t experienced before, to ensure everything runs smoothly & I know exactly what to expect.
Do you photograph anything besides weddings?
I predominately shoot weddings but I also do commercial photography when my schedule allows, mostly lifestyle, product and editorial work.
What camera gear do you use? Do you bring backups?
I’m exclusively a Canon guy. For the cameraphiles my main kit is:
5d mkIII, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 45mm f2.8 TS-E, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L, 135mm f2.0L, 70-200mm f2.8L IS.
I also use Canon 580EXII flashes, flash triggers, a few handheld video lights, prisms, handheld optical lenses & a ton of other stuff that makes me feel important.
I’m always looking for ways to improve my wedding photography & I’m currently trying out some new flash modifiers – called MagMods, which give me lots of new options for creative lighting & a whole new camera system in the Fuji X Pro-2’s, which is tiny, rangefinder style camera – It’s far less intrusive than my main gear, which allows me to blend in even more & capture the tiniest of moments without intruding – they’re also super light, which helps me after a long day!!
I always bring backup cameras and lenses to every wedding — so should anything happen to my main gear, your coverage won’t be affected.
Are you insured?
I don’t like to leave anything to chance, so yes – all my gear is fully insured and I also have public liability insurance. If you need proof of insurance let me know.
