Yes we have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance
Yes my wife and I have an "Enhanced Disclosure" CRB form.
We accept credit and debit cards as well as personal cheque and cash. We can process Visa, MasterCard, Solo, JCB cards, Maestro and Visa Electron using a mobile chip and pin terminal.
For a wedding booking a non-returnable booking fee of £150.00 will be required to secure the services of GeatPhoto. The balance will be payable four weeks prior to the date of your wedding. There is also a booking form that needs to be completed and signed.
No, this is a different area of expertise, we only supply photographs. We often work alongside video photographers and I can provide you with contact details of somebody that can provide this service.
I always work with three camera bodies, several lenses, multiple memory cards, duplicated lighting equipment and so if any equipment does fail, I will have a backup.
Our wedding bookings are normally within Essex however I am happy to travel further. When we provide you with a price it will always include any traveling costs that we might incur and thus will be an all-inclusive price.
After the wedding I colour correct and enhance the images. Once this has been completed I upload them onto your password protected gallery and email you or a wedding coordinator to advise you of this. I also produce a slide show set to music which I will post to you on a DVD, this can also be made available as a download. I normally complete this process within one week of the wedding.
For a small charge we are happy to provide a DVD of all of the high resolution images that have been uploaded onto the web gallery and a personal usage licence. (This charge would be included in the wedding price if requested as part of the initial service.) However your wedding day is very special and the cost of an album is a very small percentage of the overall wedding day cost. A printed album will long outlast all other elements of the wedding day, flowers, cake, wedding dress etc. When looking back in thirty years’ time an album will be a treasured possession, a disk of images may not even be readable by then. For this reason we would always encourage you to have an album as well. It need not be an expensive Bellissimo album our photo books are very reasonably priced.
You select the pictures you would like to see in your album and advise if there are any particular layout requirements. I then make an initial proof for you to view. This is normally via a PDF document. From this first set of layouts you can then decide on any changes you would like to have made and another set of proofs will be produced with your changes. This process continues until you are happy with the layout.
I will always visit your church and venue prior to the wedding day perhaps meeting with yourselves or your wedding coordinator. This helps me plan how the shots will be taken and helps me understand if any special equipment will be needed on the day.
