Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions we get at Greg Lumley photography.
Choosing the right photographer, it's a big deal.
Connection connection connection!
Obviously you have to like my style and pictures but it is so important that we have a connection. As your photographer I will spend more time with you on your wedding day than anyone. You need to like me and I need to like you. I’m wonderful by the way 😉
Consistency of work…
Everyone can produce a good picture now and again. The question is can they do it consistently? With this in mind it’s important to check out the the blog or even a full wedding, this will give you an excellent idea of what you’re going to get start to finish.
Do you do documentary photography?
For me doing documentary photography is like turning up for work on time. It’s not going above and beyond, it’s expected. Capturing little moments inbetween are one of the things that will make it so special.
Will you take some family pictures?
YES absolutely, while the trend is to move away from these “boring” pictures I believe they have a place. Some people will never be in each others presence ever again, why would you not huddle them together for a snap?? If you don’t like it delete it… after the day is gone so is the opportunity. I’ve taken pictures of family that haven’t seen each other in decades…
What if we're not very comfortable on camera
MORE than anything I aim to help you to feel comfortable and I’m good at doing that. If you are at ease it shows in the pictures. Don’t worry about a thing! I’ll never leave you standing there like an twit wondering what you should be doing. I guarantee you’ll enjoy working with me and even have fun on the way.
Do we get high res images WE can print?
Deifnitely I supply the high res photos for personal use. Images are supplied on a flash drive or via online download or both if you like. Make prints as you please. Share on all the social media platforms, go nuts!
Can we have the RAW photos?
Can you move the Eiffel tower 3 meters to the left?
Can we have all the photos you didn't edit?
Can you move the Eiffel tower 3 meters to the Right?
What if you get sick or injured on our day?
I’ve been shooting since 2005 and to date I’ve never missed a single job. I would have to be dead or in hospital not to get there. That being said I have a massive network of professoinal photographers that I could arrange of it came to the worst.
How long before we get our pictures?
Aproximagely 4-6 weeks after the wedding day.
How do we book you?
I work off a 30% booking fee to secure the date. Please note no date is secured until I have a booking fee confirmed.
