Q. Are you insured?
Yes we are. We have full public liability insurance and are happy to provide copies of the relevant documents.
Q. How do we contact you?
To contact us you can either phone 07926 575 581 or send us an email at [email protected].
Q. Do you have an assistant?
Yes, on your wedding day I am ably assisted by either Emma or Pauline. Both have developed excellent people skills during their careers in the teaching sector.
Q. Is a contract really necessary?
We consider a contract to be vital because it gives you peace of mind and clearly explains our obligations to you.
Q. Do you keep back-up copies of our images?
Yes, we keep two back-up copies of your images. As soon as I return to the office your images are uploaded to my computer and then backed-up onto an external hard drive. Your images are then backed-up onto CDs during the following day and stored off site.
Q. Do you have back-up equipment?
At Shared Earth Photography we bring spare equipment such as an additional camera body, lenses and flashgun to cover all eventualities. All of our equipment is also insured.
Q. What happens if you fall ill on the day of our wedding, your car breaks down etc.?
Shared Earth Photography has a list of local photographers who can be called upon in the unlikely event that something unforeseen occurs. One of these photographers will be available to cover your wedding and are of the same professional standard as ourselves. If your wedding package includes a second photographer, or you chose this as an optional extra, then you are already at an advantage. We will be happy to provide links to the websites of our reserve photographers upon request.
Q. What is a guest photography information sheet?
I must thank Ian Jardine of Ian Jardine Photography for this little gem. Basically, the information sheet divides your guests into groups so that the formal shots take place with the minimum amount of fuss. We are happy to show you an example sheet during your initial meeting.
Q. Do you offer a pre-wedding portrait session?
All of our wedding packages include a free pre-wedding portrait session which we like to call the Engagement Portrait Session (EPS). The EPS allows us to get to know one another and make you feel comfortable being photographed. For more details please see the EPS page.
Q. Do you photograph other special occasions?
Yes we do and are delighted to photograph events such as christenings, anniversaries, birthdays, renewal of wedding vows etc. Please contact us for more details.
