I don't think I've come across a couple who have ever said "heck yes! We love having our photo taken!" But all our couples just enjoy just hanging out + they're not afraid to make fools of themselves. The way I work is probably a lot different to what you imagine. A lot of our portrait work isn't posed, it's simply us interacting with you + shooting whatever happens during that time.
We love your work but we don't really consider ourselves as pretty "crazy people?!"
I feel REALLY passionate about this so brace yourself. There's a misconception by a lot of people that our work is only for super extrovert, camera confident couples that have super quirky weddings.
I think that's down to how comfortable + natural our couples seem in the pictures on our website + blog. Most of our couples aren't super confident + "crazy", in fact, a lot of them are introverts + tell us that they genuinely HATE having their picture taken but it really doesn't show in any of the images.
Most introverts I know are only shy at first + eventually open once they feel comfortable around people. So in short - we work damn hard to get natural expressions by genuinely getting to know every couple we shoot.
The images you see are who they are as a couple. We'd never dream of asking a couple to do something that wasn't an accurate representation of who they are. Quite often, these things happen naturally as a result of interacting with you as a normal human person - not a "client"
Hopefully nobody is gonna get struck by lightning. We live in a country which is blessed with a mixture of amazing weather regardless of season, which is not-so-fun on your wedding day, right? Good news is that we're more than ready to deal with all the elements + have plenty of experience of getting amazing photos regardless of the weather.
Well duh. it's chocolate... in the shape of a frog?!?! A. CHOCOLATE. FROG. What a concept!
We shoot around 2000 images per wedding. We'll always shoot multiple frames of each image to avoid blinkers + focus issues. We then save you a lot of the hard work by picking the best of the bunch. This is usually around 350 images, but it totally varies from wedding to wedding.
ERR YEAH! I actually wouldn't be able to sleep if I didn't have your images backed up. The entire raw selection (before they are narrowed down) are imported + backed up onto a separate hard drive. The final selection of images is also backed up to DVD + to an external hard drive which is then stored off site (incase of fire/act of god/Chuck Norris)
Be assured that we're insured *cheesey grin + two thumbs up*
