Locations: You are based in Warrington. Are you prepared to travel?

Yes, of course. We are prepared to travel to your location. An additional charge may be added for distances over 60 miles. 

Preparations: What is the process prior to our wedding day?

  1. Initial Consultation – at our first meeting we will discuss the style of photographs that you want, and we will talk about the timings and locations for your wedding.

  2. Visit to Wedding Venue(s) – We always visit your wedding venue(s) before your special day to ensure that we are familiar with the best places for your photographs on the day. 

  3. Pre-wedding shoot – if you opt to have a pre-wedding shoot or if it is included in your package, we will meet at your chosen location for this.

  4. Final preparations – A few weeks before your wedding we will make contact with you again to make sure there have not been any changes to your wedding day and to get your final shortlist of desired formal photographs from you so that we can ensure that we minimise the interruption to the celebrations on the day. 

Booking: How do we book you for our wedding?

Just get in touch with us through Facebook, Instagram, our Contact Us page, call 07745130707 or email.

We will arrange the Initial Consultation with you to talk you through our services and we will check our availability for your wedding date. At the initial consultation we will talk you through the terms of our contract. To confirm your booking you will need to sign a copy of our contract and pay a non-refundable deposit. 

Weather: What happens if it rains?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the weather, as much as we would love to. Rain is good sometimes if you know how to make the most of it especially if you're prepared to step outside briefly. We will always try to have a contingency plan though with an alternative indoor location to get the best photographs available on the day. We always carry umbrellas in case of an unexpected downpour! 

Photographs: What photographs do we get?

You get fully edited high and low resolution digital images presented on a USB stick. You will also be able to access your photographs in a private, password protected, online client gallery on our website. 

Any additional prints, canvases or albums are at an additional cost. 

Guests: Can our guests take photographs too?

Of course! We don’t want to get in the way of your guests enjoying your day as much as you. As your paid professional photographer for the day however, we want to make sure you get the full benefit of our services and so there may be moments when we need your full attention, especially when we are doing your newly wed “couple shots” where we may need some greater privacy.

Insurance: Are you fully insured?

Yes. Dean Standring Photography is fully insured for professional indemnity and public liability insurance. 

Illness: What happens if you fall ill?

Illness does happen occasionally. We take every step possible to ensure that we are there on your special day. In the event that illness interferes with us attending, we have a network of other photographers with a similar style who we can ask to step in at the last minute. One way or another you will get photographs of your wedding!

Contract Terms: A summary of our key terms

Our photography services are subject to the terms and conditions set out in our contract, which we require to be signed to confirm your booking.

  1. Deposit – a non-refundable deposit is required to secure your booking.

  2. Balance – the deposit is due one calendar month prior to your wedding date.

  3. Coverage – there may be restrictions placed on the photography services by the minister or official in charge of the venue. We will endeavour to work around any restrictions to ensure that you get the photos you want.

  4. Copyright – copyright in the photographs will be owned by Dean Standring Photography but you are free to use the supplied images as you wish.

Post wedding: What happens after the wedding?

After the wedding we will present you with your photographs and will carry out the post wedding consultation to ensure that you are happy with your images and ensure that everything went smoothly. At this stage, we can discuss your desires for additional prints and albums. If you would like an album, contact us directly and we will work with you to design your album. Check out examples of our wedding albums here.

Post wedding: When do we get our photographs?

We know you're excited to see your photographs but after the wedding is when the work really starts for us. Taking the photographs on the day is almost the easy part! After the wedding there are various steps we must take. All our photographs are taken in a raw format, which is almost akin to the old negative. We therefore have to process the images. There is a lot of work that goes into this. A usual turnaround time is approximately six to eight weeks. However, this can vary based on the number of pictures that are taken on the day. We will always try to get you a couple of your beautiful images within a few days so you can enjoy them in the meantime.
