Do Photographers Have Their Own Insurance to Work at a Wedding?
Make sure they do! All wedding professionals should have their own insurance including Public Liability. This is to ensure if any of your guests get hurt at the fault of the photographer they will be covered by their insurance. If your photographer is very cheap make sure they are investing in insurance. Leoni Heaslip
We Have Children in the Wedding Party, Will It Be Stressful to Get Them to Sit Still for Photographs?
Children in the wedding party just add to the fun! Even if they don't behave 100 % of the time, your guests will appreciate that these little people mean a lot to you - enough for you to have them in your wedding party . The best idea with photos is to get all of the ones involving the kids out of the way as quickly as possible, and have... Read More »
Can I Keep My Pictures Private or You Will Post Them on Your Website?
If I have this request from a couple there is usually a very good reason for it. It could be due to their line of work, family issues or just that they are really private people.

What Happens if We Go Over the Contracted Amount of Time?
There is always a bit of giving in the timeline on a wedding day as things don't always run on time. My job as a photographer is to capture what was agreed upon when we signed the contract and to ensure you love your photos from the day. Obviously, if you want to extend your coverage on the day that is always an option too! Leoni Heaslip
How Many Photos Will We Get after the Wedding?
Great question! This will change for each photographer depending on their packages. It will be different depending on whether you have 1 photographer or 2. Also every wedding is different! If you are having a sit down dinner the photographer won't be able to take photos of people eating (that's just ugly and you don't want it!). You also need to factor in any travel time etc. Some parts of... Read More »
How Many Pictures Will We Receive?
I custom design all of my packages based on whether the couple wants unlimited images or only want a certain amount. With an unlimited package, there is a minimum of 60 per hour of coverage. (1 per minute). The images chosen are left at the photographer's discretion as we only want to provide images that are to our high standards. Leoni Heaslip
Can I Give You a List of Specific Shots We Would Like?
Any wedding photographer that's been doing it a while will know what needs to be covered. If you have anything that is meaningful and sentimental that may be missed make sure you tell your photographer. This could be a special lace hanky that belonged to your grandma or something that commemorates a loved one that is no longer with us. Are you talking about Pinterest? We love to see what...
