If you have any questions that aren’t answered below, please don’t hesitate to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! Whilst many commissions are within Brighton and Sussex, I shoot weddings all over the UK.
Recent weddings destinations have including the Lake District, the Peak District, Lancashire, Yorkshire, the farthest edges of Wales to Somerset, Devon and Cornwall – plus all points in between.
International travel and destination weddings are also welcome – please ask for details.
How do we secure the date?
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?
Bank transfers and credit/debit cards through Paypal.
How many photos do we get?
400-600 for full day wedding coverage. However, there are no limits, so if it takes 700 pictures to tell your story, that’s how many you’ll get!
40-60 for an engagement.
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’ — photos are meant to be printed and enjoyed!
Do you do wedding albums?
Yes! 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 at larger weddings or where dual coverage is required. When she’s not 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.
Can we have group photos?
Absolutely! Whilst I’m predominantly a documentary photographer – group photographs are an important and fun part of the day. If you keep to 8-10 groups it allows us to do them quickly and efficiently, without taking too much time away from your drinks reception.
For more information, there’s a little guide here: Group Photographs.
Fazackarley… it’s pronounced Faz-ack-arr-lee and it’s my surname, business name and it’s an old English word, meaning the clearing in/at the edge of the woods, apparently. Although it seems most old 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 and 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.
What camera gear do you use? Do you bring backups?
The majority of photos are produced with Canon 5d mkIV, Canon 5d mkIII and lenses such as 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.
Also Canon 580EXII flashes, flash triggers, a few handheld video lights, prisms, handheld optical lenses & a ton of other things to unleash creativity.
I’m always looking for ways to improve wedding photography and currently trying out some new flash modifiers – called MagMods, which provide lots of new options for creative lighting. Currently also trying a whole new camera system in the Fuji X Pro-2, which is tiny, rangefinder style camera – It’s far less intrusive than traditional cameras, allowing the capture of the tiniest of moments without intrusion.
Multiple backup cameras and lenses come to every wedding — so should anything happen to the 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.
If you like the sound of what I do & would like me to photograph your wedding, please contact me for more information.
