Cornwall wedding photographer FAQS.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?
I like to keep things nice and simple for you with three packages to choose from, starting from £1300. You can see more information here. If you have an unusual request like a destination wedding, elopement or anything else that doesn’t fit within the boundaries of the wedding photography packages I offer then please do get in touch, I don’t bite!
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
The first step is to get in touch with your wedding date. I'll check my availability, and if I'm free then we'll arrange to meet either in person or via Skype to see whether we're a good fit for each other. If you want to go ahead with the booking it's just a case of agreeing to my contract terms and putting down a 50% deposit, with the remainder to be paid by the 1st of the month before the wedding.
WHO COMES TO THE WEDDING?
Ordinarily it's just me, but once we’ve discussed your plans I might suggest a second photographer!
DO YOU DO 'FORMAL PHOTOS'?
Yes! I'm definitely seeing a trend towards couples wanting to forego the group photographs, but I will always allow time for them anyway because even if you're not bothered with them, they're often really important to family members. I keep this part of the day short and sweet, relaxed and as informal as possible, and will discuss groupings with you prior to the wedding so that everything runs smoothly and takes up as little of your time as possible.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR YOU TO TRAVEL TO OUR WEDDING?
It really depends on distance! Sometimes I may need accommodation for the night before the wedding as well as the wedding night, though if you've chosen to get hitched at one of my lovely local wedding venues in Cornwall or Shropshire/Powys then there's no extra charge.
If you've booked me for destination wedding photography then accommodation, flights and car hire may be necessary additional expenses, but this really depends on the circumstances and location. For travel wedding photography it's always worth contacting me to see whether your wedding location is on my bucket list!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE WEDDING?
I will give a sneak peek on social media within a week of the wedding. You will receive access to a password protected online gallery containing all of your images within eight weeks of your wedding day, and a USB stick with all of your high-res images in the post shortly afterwards.
DO YOUR PACKAGES INCLUDE ALBUMS?
Two of them do, yes. Opting for a package that includes an album will save you a bit of money and will mean that you can spread the cost. If you’ve chosen the Crescent Moon package, which doesn’t include an album, you can always add one on at a later date but it will be at full price. I would really strongly encourage you to consider making room in your budget for an album. It's a way to honour the amount of time and effort you've put into your beautiful day, and it would be a crying shame for your photographs to rest on their laurels in an external hard drive for the rest of their days. Remember poring over your mum and dad's wedding album? Give that joy to the next generation!
CAN WE MAKE PRINTS FROM OUR DIGITAL FILES, AND IF SO DO WE OWN THE COPYRIGHT?
Your high-res files include a licence giving permission for you to print. Olivia Moon Photography retains the copyright to all photos which just means that your licence does not include permission to sell, modify or enter the photos into any competitions, but you're free to copy, print and upload them to social media.
DO YOU OFFER A PRINT SERVICE?
Yes - your online gallery offers the option for you and your family to order prints of whichever photographs you would like.
