We love your work and would love to book you. How do we do that?
That’s awesome! Just fill in the contact form to send me your details and we’ll take it from there. We can arrange to meet up for a chat or arrange everything via e-mail. Whichever suits you best.
When do we need to reserve our date?
The sooner the better really. Once you’ve set a date and booked a venue then booking your photographer shouldn’t be too far behind. I only ever book 1 wedding per day and no more than 2 in a week so I work on first come, first served. Once you’ve confirmed you’d like to book I’ll send you a link to an online booking form and payment details for the booking fee. Once they’re sorted you can move on to planning all the other details of your wedding day.
Can we meet up to discuss the plans for our wedding?
With so much information available online a lot of couples are now happy to discuss everything via e-mail without an in-person meeting. I reply to all e-mails as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. However knowing that you’ll get along with your wedding photographer in your big day is very important so if you do want to meet up then I usually suggest a local coffee shop to keep it casual and we can chat about anything you want.
How many photographs will we receive from our wedding day?
It’s impossible to answer with any certainty as every wedding is different however from a full day wedding from bridal preparations through to the first dance it is usual to receive 500+ photos. Busier or larger weddings may receive more but smaller or quieter weddings may receive slightly less. Whatever the quantity of photos, I always aim to deliver the highest quality possible.
Will you be the one shooting the wedding?
Yes!! You are hiring Rob Georgeson Photography to shoot your wedding so it is myself, Rob Georgeson that will be shooting your wedding.
Do you have an assistant or second shooter to work with you?
Over the last few years I have mainly worked alone however from 2018 onwards I am now offering a second shooter as standard with all full day bookings. I have a pool of very accomplished wedding photographers to choose from as my second shooter so if you would prefer either a male or female second shooter to accompany me then feel free to mention it at the time of booking.
Have you shot at my venue before?
Although I have shot weddings at dozens of different churches, registry offices, hotels, restaurants, parks and in marquees, I certainly haven’t covered all venues but I see that as a good thing. Shooting at new venues provides inspiration for more creativity and more motivation to find something new and different. So if I haven’t shot at the venue you are planning to have your wedding at you can be assured that I will still provide complete coverage of your day at the highest quality.
Is it possible to see a full set of wedding photos from start to finish?
Of course it is and rather than me send you my most recent or favourite wedding, if you have a look in the client area of my website and let me know which one(s) you’d like to see then I can send you the password to the full gallery.
What kind camera and other equipment do you use?
I have 2 Canon 5D MkIII cameras as well as several quality prime lenses and flashes as well as back up equipment to cover any accidental loss or damage. Professional photography is certainly more than just having the proper equipment but it doesn’t hurt to have a bag full of expensive toys to play with.
Do you edit all our photographs?
Yes, I do! Every image that you receive has been hand-edited, one at the time, by myself without batching in bulk groups or mass-producing the results. Also I often select a few favourites for special attention above and beyond the individual image editing.
Can you hold the date for me?
As mentioned in the one of the answers above, a date is only secured once the booking fee has been paid and the contract signed. I can pencil in a date for you and let you know if another couple are interested in the same date but booking is on a first come, first served basis.
Can you provide Videography as well as Photography?
I’m afraid I only provide photography. Videography is a very different skillset and not one that I have practiced however I do know a number of very talented videographers if you would like any recommendations.
