Philippa Davies is the professional photographer behind Pink Elephant Photography specialising in weddings across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and the Cotswolds. She captures the emotion of the day as well as those all-important finer details. We caught up with her to ask what questions couples should be asking their wedding photographers before confirming a booking.
Philippa says, "I get asked a variety of questions by my clients – here are some of the most popular ones:
Can we meet you before we book?
Absolutely! I love meeting clients and always like to hear about their wedding plans and any good photographer should say the same.
How long after the wedding will I receive my images?
The maximum time frame is four weeks but usually it's sooner and I can post a sneak peek of around 20 images on my Facebook page within 48 hours of your day.
I'm awkward in front of the camera so will we be able to achieve the type of images shown on your website?
Please don't worry! I have photographed many couples who feel the same as you! We have fun with the couple portraits which help you relax that's then reflected in the images being very natural. This should be the aim of any decent wedding photographer.
Should we reserve you a place for dinner on the day?
If I am with you all day then yes, please! I don't require a three-course meal with your guests but a light bite or sandwich is fine and allows me to have a small break.
Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured and if you require a copy of the policy just ask. This is a vital question to be asking and all good wedding photographers should be insured.
Do you have back-up equipment?
Yes, I have several lenses, flashes and cameras all ready to go.
How long do you store the images for after our day?
I store the images for one year after they have been delivered to you, but I do recommend that you back up your images as soon as you receive them.
What happens if you're taken ill on our wedding day?
I have never missed a wedding to date, and have worked through flu, colds and even food poisoning! I will be at your wedding unless the worst happens, in which case I belong to a fantastic network of photographers that all help each other out in these circumstances."
