Frequently asked Questions
Here is a list of answers to some of the most popular questions I get asked regarding wedding photography. If you have a question that is not covered here on this page, please get in touch and I would be happy to help.
Why should we consider Dale Turner Photography for our wedding?
I am a full time professional photographer. Unlike a lot of people selling themselves as wedding photographers, I don’t have a full time job and ‘do weddings on the side’. I am serious about my work and I consider it a real honour and privilege to be asked to be someones wedding photographer. It is a serious and important role and it should not be undertaken lightly.
I set myself very high standards and from the initial consultation right through to delivering your final product I aim to deliver the best possible customer service. I have over 15 years experience in photographing weddings both large and small so you can be confident that I will be a great investment for your wedding.
Can we view your previous work?
Certainly, I constantly update both my website pictures and my sample wedding albums. You can also book a wedding consultation where you can view the sample albums of some of my previous weddings. To book a free, no obligation consultation please call 07872 067941 or email email@example.com and we can book a date and time to suit you.
What is your style of wedding photography?
Over the years I have developed a very relaxed, informal and fun style of wedding photography. I give all my clients a friendly, professional and unobtrusive service on their wedding day capturing things as they happen which leaves you with a story book feel to your final wedding album.
Why do your photographs look the way they do?
My style of lighting and editing that I have worked to achieve over many years is what helps my wedding photographs stand out from other photographers work.
Can your wedding photography packages be changed to suit our needs?
Absolutely. The ‘set packages’ have been designed based on the most popular options. If you would like to customise any of the wedding photography packages please get in touch for an accurate quotation.
Do we need to provide you with food and drink on our wedding day?
No, I bring my own food and drink so there is no need to organise anything for me.
How many fully edited photographs will there be for us to choose from?
This depends on which package you require, but typically there will be between 300 and 400 final edited photographs for you to view in your private online gallery.
How long will you stay at our wedding?
Depending on which package you choose I will stay for as long as you need. In the summer months if you choose to include my award winning Twilight Wedding Photography then I could be there until 10pm.
Believe it or not, some photographers book more than one wedding per day which means they are in a rush to get from one wedding to the next! I have even heard stories of some photographers taking several bookings for the same wedding date and then subcontracting other photographers to turn up in their place! Rest assured I only ever book one wedding per day, this way I am exclusive to you. It also means that it’s first come first served!
Will you visit the venue beforehand?
Due to the large number of weddings I photograph each year I am extremely familiar with a lot of wedding venues, particularly those in the Yorkshire and North of England area. If you happen to choose a wedding venue I have not had the privilege to photograph as yet, rest assured a site visit will be made prior to your wedding day. I always make sure I have good knowledge of the wedding venue and I spend a lot of time seeking out the best locations for your wedding pictures.
How long before we get to see our wedding pictures?
I aim to have your wedding photographs fully edited and in your private online gallery within 2 weeks of your wedding day, usually much sooner. I also like to treat my clients to a special sneak preview of a few pictures from the big day. This is done via my Facebook page usually within 24 hours of your wedding (with your prior permission of course!).
Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured with public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
I am happy to send any relevant documentation to your wedding venue if they require it, just let me know.
What happens if it rains?
If it does happen to rain on your wedding day, don’t panic I always come prepared. I bring a white umbrella with me to every wedding as the 'Brolly Shot' has become one of the most requested pictures, even if it's not raining!
With some lighting know-how and a good reflection in a puddle I can even make wet weather look pretty fantastic.
How far ahead do we need to book you as our wedding photographer?
I would suggest you book early to avoid disappointment, on average my clients tend to book roughly 18-24 months prior to their wedding date.
I accept a non-refundable deposit of £150 to secure your date, which is then deducted from the total price of your chosen photography package. Once your deposit is paid and your date is confirmed, the final balance is due 28 days before your wedding date.
