Wedding Photography Questions

Planning your wedding photography with Lovepear

Common questions

How many pictures do I get?

This depends on the duration of your booking, opportunities on the day and how co-operative your guests are. For a full day a typical number would be in the region of 400-500.

How can I stop feeling nervous and self-conscious about my wedding photography?

Don’t let this spoil your day, most of your wedding photos will be taken without you even realising. A friendly and confident photographer makes the process relaxed and fun. Your wedding photos will look beautiful becuase you will feel comfortable in front of the camera and the person behind it.

What if it rains during our wedding?

All photography equipment used is rain proof so photography doesn’t need to stop.  Lovepear always make the most of the day and find the best locations in your venue, rather than make excuses. With a few lighting tricks a dull rainy day can be made to look bright and sunny too.

Can you airbrush my pics?

The whole soft focus look is old school.  Lovepear photography aims not to make anyone look fake in their wedding photos in favour of a natural representation of themselves that will not disappoint in years to come.  That said, unsightly spots or blemishes may be removed if obviously unsightly.

Are you able to visit with us before the wedding?

Lovepear may already be familiar with your venue so just ask. Regardless, every shoot is different,  and the day is shot as it happens, rather than looking to regiment the locations and specific spots to shoot in. If you want to meet at the venue then it can be arranged, but don’t feel it is essential.  Lovepear always allocates additional time on the day to arrive early and scout the venue before your event.

How much is it book and how do we go about it?

Head over to the Contact page and get in touch with your requirements. Availability will be checked and confirmed pricing provided for the specific coverage you require.

Can we still plan our wedding without meeting you?

If you are busy person it is not always possible to meet given work and locations. Feel free to discuss your wedding photography over the phone or email.

Do you use special photography equipment?

Lovepear upgrades core photography kit regularly to ensure it is always ahead of the curve. Currently,  the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is the camera of choice along with the discreet Fuji XT-1.  The 5D3 is a proven camera for professional wedding photography together with a range of the best Canon L grade lenses. You can be sure to receive all the benefits of modern photography kit.

Do you shoot photography on film or just digital?

Digital because it provides the flexibility needed by clients, and works better in more situations than a film camera. A film photographer would also charge you a packet in print fees alone – plus there is no real concept of ‘copyright free’.

How long does it take to get my wedding photography or wedding album?

Lovepear will complete production and ship your wedding photography back to you within 2-3 weeks. If you ordered an album, the creation, printing and delivery takes around 3 or 4 weeks after you have chosen your images. Take your time in picking your favorite pictures, there’s no time limit.

In which format do I receive my pictures?

All photography is shot and produced using the professional camera RAW format. You are provided you with the final images in the JPEG format for ease of use. The resolution of each picture is around 23 MegaPixels meaning you can really see huge levels of detail and print to small or large sizes without quality loss.  Duplicate photos in full resolution and lower resolution are also included to enable swift sharing and an easy screen viewing experience.

What areas do you cover in your work?

Lovepear will travel to shoot anywhere in South East England but focus on Kent and Surrey wedding venues. Further travel is possible for an additional reasonable charge.

Do you work on your own or with an assistant on the wedding day?

Another photographer just gets in the way. An advantage to working alone is that Lovepear maintains creative vision right through the process so you can be sure of consistency in the photography provided to you.

What happens if you are sick or can't make it on the wedding day?

Quite simply put, your money would be refunded in full and fellow photographers contacted to help you find someone available.

I've checked out your photography packages but would like to make some changes, can I?

On the pricing page you can find popular packages which would fit 95% of client needs. That said, packages are only there as guides, so if you require a more bespoke package at a great price then that is no problem. Get in touch with what you would like.

When is the best time to book you as my wedding photographer?

Most weddings are at weekends and only one wedding is covered on any date. You need to get in touch as soon as you can to avoid disappointment. Popular dates around August in particular, should be booked well in advance.

My wedding is on a weekday, can I get a discount on pricing?

If your wedding is Mon-Thu you can enjoy a 5% discount on website prices.
