WHERE ARE YOU GUYS BASED?
We shoot all over the place (we’re from Western Australia after all, a 4+ hour drive is pretty much the norm) but we call Bristol home. It’s an awesome place with lots going on – not that we go to any of those things… but you know, they’re there if we want them.
WHO SHOOTS ON THE DAY?
Us. Glenn and Lauren. That’s one of our main things we stress – you don’t get just one of us, or one of us and a ‘second photographer’ – you get the two of us that have shot a ton of weddings together (like, around 300). You’re literally getting two full-time wedding photogs for the price of one… it’s a terrible business model.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
For SEO purposes I guess we’ll call it reportage, photojournalistic, documentary, natural, candid… is that all of them? Really though the main photos that we love are the ones that make you smile or laugh. That sounds super fucking lame, but it’s a cool feeling when we’re going through the images to make your blog and smiling at our own (your) images. Cos really, if we’re not making peeps feel happy when they look at their wedding images… what’s the point?
WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH ON THE DAY?
I mean, we’re Australian, so you’re gonna know in advance it’s going to be super chilled (well, technically Lauren’s a Kiwi, but she doesn’t have the awesome accent so I don’t count it). I’d say we’re a hard-to-put-into-words mix of “Just ignore us and do your thing” and “Hey we’ll keep you chilled out and calm and let’s make fun of the people who are bugging you on the day and can we get you anything?”
HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET?
We say 650+ for a normal full wedding day, but that’s not a capped amount, we pick all the good ones we like out of the ~10,000 we take (yup, you read that right). In 2018 we averaged around 850 delivered photos per wedding, and obviously those are all fully edited like you see us blog & post online.
WHAT’S YOUR PRICING LIKE?
Hit us up on our Contact Page and we’ll send all our Pricing Info over to you (we’ll even send you over our Photo Tips For Couples PDF to make it worth your while!)
HOW DO WE GET THE IMAGES?
We bust out an awesome little blog with about 15 images within a week of the wedding, then we go through the ~10k photos, cull them a couple of times, edit them (Lauren’s a meticulous editor, whereas I’m so bad at it I had to learn how to cook instead to even up our workload), and we get you the epic final blog of about 100 images (like you’ve seen on our site) around week 8; then straight after that send out the full 650+ all parcelled up on USB in the highest resolution for printing and a smaller resolution for your socials, plus a couple of parent-copy DVD’s, and some bonus prints & what-not to make it look all awesome. And we’ll stick the whole gallery online too in case you want to send them to family to look at or download.
DO YOU GUYS DO ALBUMS?
Heck yes: we love a good wedding album – especially our ones because we get them from Vision Art who make the *best* albums. But you don’t have to decide now – you can add an album on after the wedding if you want once you know how much money you have left over post-honeymoon / post-buying-new-furniture-to-fill-the-void-of-wedding-planning.
DO YOU HAVE ANY PHOTO TIPS FOR COUPLES?
We have the hottest tips! Well, we have some tips. A PDF we super-creatively called “Photo Tips For Couples” to be precise – we’ll send a copy over when you hit us up for pricing & availability.
DO WE HAVE TO BE GOOD AT HAVING OUR PHOTO TAKEN?
Nope. Not at all. You just have to be able to get a bit close to the person you’re marrying and enjoy the day. If you can do those two things, you’re set! And yes, pretty much everyone that enquires with us says they hate having their photo taken. I think we attract a lot of introverts, and we’re okay with that. I mean, it can’t *just* be Lauren who’s doing the super awkward do-we-shake-hands-or-hug-hello thing, right?
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU GUYS?
Once you decide to book, to lock us in for your date it’s a £500 deposit and a signed contract and we’re all yours!
