Here is compilation of frequently asked questions for your convenience. If your question has not been answered in the following list, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ideal Wedding Day is based in London, but we do serve clients all around the world. We only charge cost of travel plus reasonable accommodation charges (if we are staying overnight) on the top of our standard package for coverage outside London.
The photographer you meet during introductory meeting will be the main photographer for your engagement/ wedding. You may request a specific photographer from our team to cover your big day and we would try our best to send him/her, otherwise we’ll make the decision based on availability, and language abilities, but of course after discussing with you.
We do not provide partial day coverage on weekends normally but on the week days, yes.
Yes, we do.
Yes, we do.
We have shot at hundreds of venues so there is a bright chance that we have. If we have not, we will make sure to perform a thorough walk through with you prior to your wedding day.
We believe that in hiring a professional wedding photographer, customers deserve a professional who is able to use his or her technological expertise and creative vision to create a product that clients and amateur photographers could not on their own. With digital SLR cameras being quite affordable, there are many amateur photographers out there posing as professionals. We aim to educate our clients on the differences, and provide artistic imagery that far surpasses other top knotch wedding photography studios. Therefore, our wedding photography philosophy has three main parts as follows: Wedding photographers are artists and they must have a deep understanding of artistic theory including concepts on composition, lighting, colour, design, balance, etc. Wedding photographers must be using professional grade camera and lighting equipment. Wedding photographers are constantly in unusual lighting situations with significant time constraints, thus wedding photographers must be experts of their equipment. Photographer should be able to quickly adjust camera settings, anticipate lenses needed for each scene, use on and off-camera lighting techniques. The elements mentioned are crucial to being able to create a professional product.
Ideal Wedding Day Photography crew is acclaimed for developing a unique style of wedding photography that is deeply rooted in wedding photo journalism while influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. We love to use creative lighting, unique perspectives, angles, compositions and artistic post production refining to bring out our clients personalities and beauty while telling their wedding story. We are proud of ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery. To see examples of our quality and style, please visit our Portfolio.
We have shot in the darkest of dark chapels and reception halls, so there is no need to worry. If the situation allows, we will set up additional lighting to make sure we get bright crisp pictures. Some venues do not allow for flash photography; and for that reason, we shoot on cameras with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures .
No. We take every measure to make sure consistent style and quality among our master photographers. First off, all our master photographers started their training at the exact same time under the same mentors. We’ve all been in business ever since, developing our unique style you see in our work; and once a week, our studio gets together and reviews images together to ensure that our quality and style are consistent. If one person learns a new trick or technique, he shares it with the others; and on the other hand, all mistakes, whether major or minor are scrutinised by the whole team in our frequent review sessions. We guarantee you that the quality and style of photography you receive will be consistent.
Yes we do. Every image we provide is post produced with our unique style of basic post production. This involves colour correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and many other corrections.
We shoot most of our images in Large Raw but do others as well. It depends what our customers prefer.
Touching up” in our studio is just as signature (basic) post production. Please see the question below for clarification.
Digital photography does not end when camera shutter clicks shut. Similar to the days of the darkroom, each digital negative must go through post production development in order to arrive at a final professional-quality product. Furthermore, post production is not just correcting and slightly enhancing images. When done with care and expertise, the right post production technique can add more character and life to an image. In some cases, it can turn a basic image and transform it into a real work of art. In others, it can take a certain emotion in a scene and enhance that emotion to create a more powerful image. With this understanding, our photo company has developed a unique style of post production that is done in-house by trained professionals and not shipped off to a batch processing company. We give following touches to our photography.
Advanced post production includes touch ups such as removal of blemishes, removal of bags under eyes, removal of fly-away hairs, etc. On the other hand, custom post production is anything that requires extensive, custom work in Photoshop such as removing entire objects from the scene, changing the size and shape of body parts or other objects in the scene, adding objects to a scene, and other custom work. We charge hourly for the custom post production, as the time required ranges depending on the complexity of the project. Please contact our studio manager for a quote for custom post production.
The amount of time we suggest you set aside for photos depends on the time of day.
Ideally we would have 45 minutes for the girls and 45 minutes with the guys.
We highly suggest doing this before the ceremony because the makeup and hair are still fresh. Please make sure to give us at least a good full hour, so we can capture the amazing shots you see in our portfolio.
Have a list of pictures that you want with your family/friends right after the ceremony. Also, have at least one person from each side of the family who are really organized (and loud) to move people in and out of photos.
This is where we take the bridal party out for some amazing shots. This is also nice to handle before the ceremony so that you can rest and enjoy your day afterwards.
For a variety of reasons, we have to charge for the time in between those events. The fact is, we’re never truly resting during the day, either we’re backing up images, setting up for the second venue, traveling to the second location, taking venue shots, or making up for lost photo time because of wedding day delays. In many cases, we use that ‘downtime’ to take you and your significant others out for a photo session or more family portraits.
We do understand that not everything goes as planned during a wedding. We never pack up before the contracted time; and moreover we won’t be leaving on the dot when the contracted time is up. Rather, we will ask you at the end of your contracted time whether or not you would like to extend. If you would like us to stay, we will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 30 minute increment.
We’ve dedicated the entire day to your wedding, so we won’t be racing off to catch other plans that same evening. However, we need to charge for additional coverage, because there are additional costs of having the team stay for additional hours and also the additional photos taken all need to be post produced, adding to our overall costs.
Post production for engagement sessions are completed within 4-6 weeks after the date of the shoot. If you require the images to be completed prior to that time, a rush-process fee of £150.00 will be charged.
We encourage to do your engagement session as soon as possible. The latest we suggest is at least eight weeks prior to the wedding due to the time necessary to post produce each image.
As most weddings occur on weekends, we do not shoot engagement sessions on weekends. If you can only do your engagement session on weekends, we can tentatively schedule your engagement session on a weekend, however, if a wedding is scheduled for that weekend later on, we will have to reschedule your engagement shoot.
We typically deliver anywhere from 200-300 images per 3 hour engagement shoot and for weddings we typically deliver 100 images per hour roughly.
Your engagement session images will be ready to view within 4-6 weeks after the date of the shoot. If you require the images to be completed prior to that, after the date of your shoot, a rush-process fee of £150.00 will be charged, unless other terms were discussed.
Online slideshows are the slideshows you view on our website. These typically include one song and roughly 60 images depending on the length of the song. We choose the images and the song to fit your big day. These are hosted online (on our website) for 5-6 months. DVD slideshows, on the other hand, are DVDs that we create using three songs and the images of your choice. We recommend that you leave the song selection and image selection to us, as this is part of our expertise, but if you do want more control, you can have it with this product.
We have accounts with most of the major printers, but we mostly go with Graphi Studio, Premium Wedding Albums, Vanilla Photo Books, Deluxe Photo Albums, and Heritage Photo Albums.. However, if you prefer the styles of any other album makers, we would be happy to accommodate your request but additional fees may apply depending on the printer you choose.
Once you choose the pictures for your album, your pictures are sent to album editors for the album lay out and the rest. They send us back the digital sample album for the preview. Once the album is finalized in the light of your feedback, your album is ordered.
Product creation time varies, however in general, print orders will be completed within 4-6 weeks after the product order is submitted. Similar to the post production process, if you require rush-processing, a fee of £150.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping may apply as well.
As with our other products, production time varies. However you can expect to receive your album 4-6 weeks after placing your order. The procedure before placing the order varies in duration depending on how quickly you respond to the instructions for the album design as well as the amount of changes you request after the initial designs. Some couples complete this within a month or two, others take over a year. Similar to the post production process, if you require rush-processing, a fee of £150.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping will also apply.
The sign-in book takes around 4-6 weeks to print after the order is placed. As with the album, the time it takes to get the order ready for print depends on how quickly you respond to our instructions and how many alterations you request. Similar to the post production process, if you require rush-processing, a fee of £150.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping will also apply.
Our album contains 11 pages and 125 images. If you’d like to add more pages and images, each additional page can be added at additional cost, and includes the design time/revisions and three retouched images.
Yes, you can. Each additional page can be added for additional cost and includes the design time/revisions and retouched images.
Yes, we do.
Mostly, you can print your photos up to 20×30 without any quality loss. If you’d like to print larger than 20×30, additional post-production will be needed. For pricing on these services, please contact us.
You have the right to reprint images whenever and wherever you want. However you may not sell your images for a profit or publish your images without the written consent of Ideal Wedding Day.
For a 3 hour engagement shoot we typically deliver 200-300 images and for a wedding we deliver 100 images per hour of coverage.
Yes we do. All of our packages come with Full Resolution image DVDs.
If your image DVD arrives in the mail damaged, please contact us and we will immediately send out another copy.
There is a £30 replacement charge for image DVDs. We suggest you make at least one copy of the DVD when you receive it from us.
Each of our packages includes full resolution image DVD. However, we typically do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots as we believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, we’re mostly shooting with the end (post-produced) product in mind. However if you really want your RAW images, we will provide them to you along with our post-produced JPG’s for an additional fee of£100.00.
Yes, we do. Most of the venues require the photographer to have Liability Insurance, So, we have one with plicybee.co.uk.
We have never lost an image from a wedding due to the following backup workflow for each of our events: During the shoot, we back up on an External Hard Drive throughout the day. After the shoot, we back it up to local server set up. Once the images are completed, we upload the images to an offsite location and burn another copy for our archives. At any given point, there are two copies of the files.
Here is the list of our professional equipment. Besides the equipment listed below, we have a variety of tripods, filters, and other accessories as well.
Starting with camera bodies, we use the most current and high-performing wedding photography camera bodies available to date, the Canon 5D Mark II & III. Each of our main photographers is equipped with one of the following primary and backup bodies.
