Patrick was our wedding photographer for our small wedding out at Paradise trust and Kinloch lodge last week. The photos are absolutely stunning, we are so happy with them, and he sent them to us really quickly....

I would love to just have the one rate for everything, it would make life so much simpler. However, there are 3 very important reasons I charge more for Heli Weddings and Heli Proposals.
- My life insurance doesn't cover me for heli shoots so I charge more to help offset the risk to my family
- The going rate for this kind of photography is way more than I am charging so I would be foolish to charge even less than this!
- Heli shoots like this take a lot more time for a "1 hour shoot" than non-heli photography, due to check-in times, loading, unloading etc.
I aim to provide every client approximately 50 edited images per hour of shooting. This is not a guarantee as sometimes the light or weather won't let us capture images as quickly. Having said that, I normally deliver more than this.
Because I often shoot several variations on the one angle and editing is very time consuming, I pick out the best shots and edit and deliver those. As an example, at a 4 hour wedding I might shoot 1200 images and I would likely deliver around 200 - 250 to the client.
Unfortunately, no. The best I can explain the reason why is this;
Imagine you go to a cake baker and you say to them "I really like your cakes but I'm not sure I like your icing. Can I buy some cake batter from you so I can make my own cake?".
Honestly, if you don't dig my editing, don't book me - book a photographer whose work including editing style you dig. Everybody will be much happier that way.
You can pay your balance after the wedding if you wish. I do ask for payment in full before I deliver the full edit though so don't leave it too long.
You sure can. We accept Visa and Mastercard but not Amex or Diners.
I used to be really uncomfortable shooting at venues or locations I was unfamiliar with. But these days I love it - it allows me to see with fresh eyes! I will also scout any unknown locations if possible before your wedding day. Got a new location or venue for me? Bring it on!
