Here are some common questions that are asked by our wedding couples. We hope they help you answer any questions you may have, please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about your wedding. Amanda xx
Why do you do wedding photography as a job?
We love everything about weddings! from the dress to the happy couple, guests and the flowers and decorations. Everyone is always so happy and excited! I have sooo much fun on the day! My cheeks are usually so sore from smiling all day. I just love capturing your once in a lifetime moments that you will treasure forever is a real thrill and passion! It is very satisfying to provide high quality images, products and personalised service that will exceed your expectations all the while making the process easy and painless for you.
What is your wedding day approach?
We try as much as we can to blend in with the celebrations and try to let things unfold naturally, especially at the ceremony and reception festivities are on. If your wedding photography is important to you and you want great photos but you don't want to sacrifice your entire day for the sake of the photography, then we are a great choice for your day. We believe the photography should be about your wedding, your wedding shouldn't be about the photography!
Your wedding day shouldn't be ruined by a bossy photographer who keeps you away from your family and friends for hours and hours spending way too much time taking over posed, 'modelling' or cheesy photos; As it is a wedding day, not a modelling photo shoot as some photographers seem to think!
How long have you been a photographer?
I (Amanda) have been capturing weddings for over 18 years… I did my first wedding with my mum at the age of 12! My late mother was an international award winning professional photographer. So photography has been a huge part of my entire life. I was my mother’s assistant photographer for many years and started doing weddings on my own at the age of 21 in 2005.
I have since photographed well over 100 weddings whilst running my own photgraphy business. All of our photographers who work for Sherringham Photography have in excess of 5 years wedding photography experience. This ensures that we have the experience, the knowledge and the skills to capture fantastic photographs throughout your wedding day.
For every wedding booking we donate $10 to Ovarian Cancer Australia in honor of the late Bronwyn Sherringham who passed away from Ovarian cancer in 2005.
Will you make us tacky or cheesy poses in our photographs?
Only if you spontaneously act corny or do cheesy stuff on your wedding day.
We won't make you do embarrassing or awkward poses on your wedding day! Some photographers think the wedding photography isn't complete until they get the whole bridal party to blow kisses to the camera, or laying the bride across a bed in a ‘sexy pose’ surrounded by all of the bouquets of flowers!!!
If you want any of these types of pictures you only have to ask and we will photograph them, but we will not suggest or force you do any awkward posed pictures.
How do you insure that our images don't get destroyed if your computer crashes?
We make a minimum of 2 backup copies of all your images within 24 hours of your event. These copies of the images are stored in two separate buildings in case something unforeseen happens to the studio. Once the backups are made, we begin the editing process. After your USB of edited images is completed, we create another backup just in case you lose or damage yours.
How long do we have to wait to receive our high resolution USB of edited wedding images?
We have a guarantee your wedding photos will be ready 1 month after your wedding date.
This means you can start printing and showing off your beautiful wedding photos soon after you return from your honeymoon!! (We have heard awful stories of photographers making couples wait for months to receive their wedding images!!!)
What type of weddings are NOT suited to Sherringham Photography?
Sherringham photography is not suitable for couples who don’t care at all how their wedding photos turn out or who takes them……should NOT book us for their wedding day. If you are a couple purely making your decision based on price, and are looking for the cheapest deal available, I am so sorry, but Sherringham Photography will not be for you :-(
A cheaper inexperienced photographer will take hundreds of pictures to get a few good ones, We will take hundreds of pictures so you will get hundreds of good ones throughout your wedding day!
Ultimately you will get what you pay for. Quality is always the best value! It is better to pay good money for top-quality with the assurance that you will get your money's worth, rather than gambling on your once-in-a-lifetime event only to ultimately end up disappointed.
Do we get the printable digital images of our wedding photos?
Yes, every wedding package comes with the high resolution files of all the edited photographs.
With your photographs you are able to print enlargements, canvases, make photobooks and create multiple disk copies of the photos for your family etc….
There are also no watermarks or logo's on on your wedding photos.
How many weddings do you photograph a day?
Each photographer/team only captures one wedding per day. This ensures you will have our full attention and commitment to your wedding day. We have a limit also on the number of wedding we do per year, so when you book with us you won't be just another number. We will be here every step of the way to help you plan your day!
What happens if I don’t know what package I want yet?
Never fear, you have plenty of time!
We don't believe in over complicated packages, hidden costs and all that other stuff that can find its way into some pricing. It does my head in when I can't figure out what I ACTUALLY get so I don't do it to you…
Most couples secure their wedding date with us 8-12 months out from their wedding.
We can only secure your wedding date once your $500 booking deposit is paid. This means your date could disappear if you leave it too long to book!
Are you available for my wedding day?
We book out very fast in the peak wedding seasons! So to find out if your date is still available please contact us by filling in this Wedding Enquiry form.
This all sounds great, but I still have a couple of questions. Can I contact you?
Of course! You can contact us anytime! We are more than happy to chat to your wedding day and answer any concerns or questions that you may have.
Every couple has a different idea on how they would like their day to be captured and that includes you!
I would love to understand your vision you have for your wedding day.
A consultation with me is a great way to get clarity on what styles you like, what is important to you when it comes to your day, photo locations that will suit, timing for your day etc.
It also a chance to find out if we are great fit for your day and if you feel comfortable with me because if you don’t feel comfortable with you your photographer it will show in the photos!
