Where are you based? Where will you travel to?

We are based in the North West of England and generally work around this area. We can travel to other locations, however this may incur an additional cost.

What shooting style do you adopt?

We photograph using a natural style with a few ‘posy’ ones thrown in. We use this style as we feel it gives a more interesting feel and enables you to get the best of both styles.

Our images on disc, are they copyrighted?

We allow you to print, copy and share your photos either to friends or family and on social media websites. embee photography holds full copyright to the images, and these may be used for promotion purposes. If you wish to share images via other companies such as your make up artist or hair technician, then please ask us for permission before doing so.

How long have you been a photographer for?

I have 5 years of photographic experience within the wedding industry, but a lifetime of visual arts. I have always been extremely artistic right through School, College and University, where I received my degree in animation. It was from this point that I became more involved in photography. Photography is my main passion within my creative background, where my capabilities also cover website design, illustration and 3D design.

Do we choose our photos for the album?

Once we have selected, edited and given the photos back to you on DVD, you can then pick out your favourites for the album. Before the album is sent for print we will send you a preview of it as a .pdf file just to check if it is as you wished.

DVD disc? DVD Slideshow? What’s the difference?

This can get some people confused. We use DVD discs because they hold more storage to fit your photos on. DVD discs hold all of your chosen wedding day images at full resolution that will open up on a PC or laptop. A DVD slideshow is a personal montage that has been crafted and carefully pieced together to tell the story of your special day. You choose up to 4 song choices that are personal to you as man and wife, so that your DVD slideshow tells the perfect fairytale when you show it to your family and friends.

What are your payment terms?

For wedding photography, we ask for £200 to secure your wedding day. 50% of the remaining balance is due 4 weeks before the wedding date, and 50% is due before the photographs are returned to you. In terms of portrait photography, we ask for £50 to secure your session, and the remaining balance is due either on the day or before the photos are returned.

When can we see our photos?

Wedding photos are usually returned between 6-8 weeks and portraits usually between 2-3 weeks. Keep an eye out on our blog and Facebook page for sneaky little previews of your day.

Why do we need a pre-wedding meeting?

It is vital we have a pre-wedding meeting as it gives you a chance to meet me and allows me the opportunity to explain and show my work to you. Here we can discuss your day in detail and discuss styles/poses that you may fancy.

When do we book?

It is advised that you book with us as soon as your wedding date is confirmed. This ensures that other customers are not likely to ‘steal’ your date. We receive enquiries that are as far as two years away, so it is never too early to pick our brains. No obligation quotes are offered, so feel free to ask away if our packages don’t suit you.

Do you offer free consultations?

Yes, embee come to visit you free of charge.

Do you retouch the photos?

We edit photos accordingly, to make them more pleasing to the eye using unique techniques that are exclusive to embee. We undertake minor skin corrections only if we think necessary or at a customers request.

Do you visit the venue/Church before the wedding?

If we haven’t been to the venue where your wedding is before, and it is within a reasonable distance, then we are happy to take a little trip to your venue to scout locations for the best shots and opportunities possible.

What if we cancel our wedding?

If in the event that you have to cancel your wedding, then you will lose the deposit of £200. If you have paid anything extra off your wedding then this will be returned to you.
