FAQ

.

Do you shoot destination weddings?

We mostly work within the Scottish Borders, Northumberland and Lothian area but we are willing to travel further, including abroad at an additional cost.

Will there be a second photographer?

We can accommodate a second photographer for you special day, subject to availability. Ask for more information.

What is Hybrid Photography?

This we believe is the future of photography. This is when you can have 2 photographers to capture Phot and video to combine amazing photos and a highlight video of your day in one.

What is your Style?

We have 2 styles of photography. Traditional and Documentary. At most weddings we mix these styles to allow us to catch those special moments with minimal intrusion. For traditional group shots we will organise your guests to ensure we get the photos you have asked for. If you require true documentary style then throughout the day I will be blending in as a guest as much as possible and allowing you to enjoy your day.

What kind of equipment do you use?

We use professional Nikon Z series mirrorless cameras, with a variety of professional grade zoom and prime lenses. You may wonder why not DSLR like most photographers. We did work with the Nikon DSLR cameras but decided to move to the Mirrorless system as we felt there were many benefits for the Wedding industry by utilising these cameras extra features. They allow for a live preview of the shot we will get, they also offer a completely silent electronic shutter option where required. And most importantly they are much lighter to carry about. We also use a few flash guns and triggers for certain setups when required. We don’t often use tripod setups, reflectors, soft boxes etc as this can take up far too much time and can be overpowering. The occasional tripod may be used in low light scenarios but only when we feel a great need for it. We also use Microphones for video highlights and hand gimbal for the dancing.

Do we receive the images in black & white as well?

Most of our work is a mixture of the two and we make a decision through experience as to which image should be in colour or black and white. This can be reversed or changed if requested. You do however have the option to choose an ever growing popular style of black and white only.

Are you insured?

Yes. We are fully insured by both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. This means that we are insured if we have an accident, we cause an accident, damages to your belongings and ours.

What Happens If we Cancel?

Please see your contract for details

What happens if you are ill and can’t make the wedding?

Please see your contract for details

Do we need to meet you?

There is no requirement to meet. If you feel that you would like to meet to discuss specifics or to just put a face to the name then this is not a problem at all and we can make an arrangement to meet. If not, then this is also fine. We know what we are doing and any changes or differences in the order of the day can be communicated by email or discussed on the day if necessary. All we really need from you is the date, location, names of the happy couple, official photo list and order of the day. There will be a contract drawn up which includes the terms and conditions.

Are the photographs copyrighted?

Images remain the property of Howden Photography, however you will have full rights to distribute and print for personal and family use. This in turn allows us to share your images freely without further consent. When sharing publicly, recognition is given to Howden Photography in accordance with ownership rights. The full rights and ownership of the images can be purchased by agreement at an additional cost.

How much is the deposit and when is the final payment?

The deposit for any of our packages is £300. The Final payment is due 1 month before your wedding day. If the final payment is not received within the month before the wedding day then we have the right to cancel the booking with the deposit being non-refundable.

Do you charge for traveling expenses?

If the venue is more than 60 miles then there will be traveling expenses added to the cost.
Hotel arrangements or costs will also be charged extra if required.

How many photos do we get?

We believe that quality is more important than quantity. After much deliberation and feedback we believe that depending on the package, anywhere between 300 – 400 images is a realistic amount to receive with 1 photographer. Anything more than this normaly results in close duplicates and it can become a task more than a positive experience looking through your images. If a second photographer is required then there are normally many more candid shots taken and this in turn would result in more photos being delivered, up to 200 additional images.

Does the weather affect the day?

Our equipment is fully weather sealed and we can shoot in the rain, snow and wind when required. Our Drone however is not, and is dependant on wind and rain factors.

Do you have photo albums?

Yes we do provide photo albums. However they are much less common now and most images are presented on a Printed DVD or a bespoke USB and presentation box. If you decide you would like an album we use a professional lab to design, produce and deliver our beautiful albums.

How soon will we receive our images?

This will vary depending on the package you have chosen and the time of year you are married. We aim to deliver your images on average within 4-6 weeks of your wedding. However if your wedding is in the busiest of months, delivering up to 550 edited images may take longer.
