Wedding photography in Bolton
At Claret and Blue Photography, I capture moments that you don’t want to forget.
My favourite part of my job is providing you with beautiful memories which will, in time, become family heirlooms. If you would like to discuss your event and requirements with me, please get in touch.
Below are some of the answers to some frequently asked questions, particularly regarding wedding photography packages.
Can we meet up before booking you?
Absolutely! I currently live in Bolton, Greater Manchester so please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can arrange to meet up and go over your ideas. Weekends are normally busy, but we can squeeze something in if I’m not shooting.
My friend's photographer lost all the photos, how do I know you won't lose mine?
I shoot on professional cameras that write to 2 memory cards. The cards are separated on the day to minimise the risk. I back up whenever and wherever possible and to date have never lost any photos. I do all that I can to minimise this risk.
Do you offer discounts?
Things like mid-week, non public holidays and weddings in off peak months might be eligible for discounts. Full payments upfront, long before the wedding date may also reward you with a discount. There’s no exact rule, so please get in touch and we can discuss this further.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Can I request specific photos from your website or from other inspiration?
I can't decide on a package! Help?
What do you need from us before the wedding day?
Do you really need a place to sit at the reception?
How will you give me the photos?
Do you provide black and white images of all the photos?
Your photos are really high quality. Could you please give me lower quality photos for Facebook?
Can I share my photos with other people or make prints?
Are my photos going to look like the ones on your website?
At the heart of shooting in a ‘photo journalistic’ style is a sense of telling the story honestly without manipulating or interfering with what you are documenting. I try to do this throughout the day and shooting at a decent location at the optimal time of the day is important.
How does travel and accommodation work?
Destinations over 2 hours outside of Bolton may require 1 nights’ accommodation. Destinations over 3 hours may require 2 nights’ accommodation, but only if it’s a late finish.
Do you require a deposit?
Can I get a refund if I cancel my wedding?
We live on the other side of the world, or work really strange hours. Meeting up is not an option, what should we do?
Do you need to see the ceremony / reception venue before the day?
Do I need to feed you?
How long does it take to get my photos?
Do you edit all the pictures?
Are you finished with the photos yet?
Can I collect my photos?
How long do you keep the photos for?
