Frequently asked questions
How far are you willing to travel?
I travel throughout the UK and undertake destination weddings abroad.
Do you charge travel costs?
No, not for UK weddings. Whichever Wedding Photography Collection you have chosen, there will not be any additional costs unless we have explicitly agreed these beforehand. If I choose to travel to your wedding day location the day before, or stay close to the location when you celebrations have finished, any accommodation or meals will be at my cost. For destination weddings overseas then travel and accommodation apply by agreement.
What packages do you offer?
My three Wedding Photography Collections are designed to suit a range of requirements and budgets. I would advise calling me direct to discuss a package that is perfect for you. If you prefer, complete the contact form on my website and I will send you my Pricing Brochure.
How many photographs will I receive?
Typically, at a wedding I will shoot over 2000 photographs. I then spend time selecting and editing the best images. There is no limit to the number of photos I deliver to you but you can expect at least 500 edited hi-resolution images. Generally it’s more. The number increases depending on the flow of the day and how many events and activities need to be captured.
Do you work alone or with a second photographer?
The choice is yours! You can hire just me or I can be assisted by a second photographer. Either way, your day will be fully captured.
How long have you been a photographer?
I started taking photographs on a SLR camera before I was a teenager but became a professional photographer in 2006 after studying photography at university. The first wedding I covered was for a friend. Shortly after, I decided wedding photography was what I wanted as a career. Later, I went on to study, both in the UK and abroad, under some of the world’s leading photographers, to perfect my skills. Now I find it hard to describe how much I love my work.
Have you shot at my venue before?
Having shot at numerous venues around the country, there is a good chance I have. If not, I always find time to check out the best photography locations. Usually this is early in the day, or frequently, I will travel to the location the day before the wedding. I will have also done online research prior to your special day!
Can I see a wedding from start to finish?
Of course! I pride myself on consistency and understand wedding photographers are selective when it comes to choosing images for their websites. That is why, when I meet potential clients, I encourage them to view full weddings I have shot.
Do you edit all images before we see them?
Yes. Every image delivered is post-produced. This involves colour correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping and other corrections. Some wedding photographers do not edit any images, or will only post-produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography flaws.
My venue is dark. Can you handle this?
We shoot in gloomy churches and on very dark dance floors all the time! If the situation allows, we will set up professional lighting to ensure we get sharp pictures. Churches, in general and rightly so, do not allow flash photography and so we will shoot on cameras with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures.
What is your wedding photography 'style'?
Whether it is preparing at home for your wedding, the wedding ceremony or reception, my style of wedding photography is best described as authentic and honest. I focus on candid and natural expressions with a hint of direction from me! Please visit My Wedding Photography Style page on my website for more information.
Do you take 'traditional' wedding images?
I do take traditional family pictures in addition to my more natural and candid style. While they may not be as exciting as some of my informal images, I do appreciate the value, and the history, behind traditional family wedding portraits. As each wedding is unique, we will decide between us how much time is spent on traditional group photographs. Please do ask to see our family group images as they demonstrate how we get everyone to relax in front of the camera!
How can I use the hi-resolution images?
The high-resolution images are delivered on a beautifully presented and password protected online gallery and you will also receive them on a USB presented in an attractive wooden box. From the gallery you can download hi-res files, print high quality prints and canvasses, send photos to family and friends, share them on Facebook or use them in any other way you can think of!
Do you have Liability Insurance?
As a professional wedding photographer the answer is yes, both Public and Private Liability Insurance. Many venues require the photographer to have liability insurance. So if you are thinking of hiring Uncle Fred, make sure he’s covered!
How can I set up an appointment to meet you in person and see some of your work?
Call me, send me an email or complete the Contact Form on my website and I will be more than happy to travel to you.
How does the album design process work?
After you have viewed and selected your images, we will design the album layout for you so it accurately reflects the events of your wedding day. This can then be proofed through your password protected online gallery. Once you are happy with the design you can expect to receive your album in around four to five weeks. For more information visit the Luxury Album page on my website.
How do I reserve you for our date?
All dates are reserved once we receive your signed contract and deposit.
About S.R.Urwin Wedding Photography
Hi, I'm Steve, a professional wedding photography. I travel the UK, particularly the Home Counties, Midlands and South, including London. I love travelling abroad and some of my best locations have been in Portugal, Switzerland and the Channel Isles.
I truly believe that to create a good photograph you have to have a real connection with your photographer. In turn, this creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere, leading to a natural result, as you can see from my images. I love meeting new people and photographing them in beautiful, creative and natural ways. I feel lucky to have been able to make this my career. I would love to show you the secret of Good Wedding Photography!
Good photography is more than a fancy camera. I've spent years perfecting my skills and countless hours photographing weddings. I know how to get the shot predictably, every time. I know what makes a great composition and how to capture feelings and show emotions, in a beautiful way. Having photographed many weddings before,l know the flow of the day and so will know exactly where to be positioned for the perfect angle for your first kiss, or when that close family member sheds a tear.
A professional wedding photographer won't be fazed by bad lighting conditions - whether it be a dark church ceremony or an overly bright reception. I will know within seconds where the best light will be and the best spot to stand.
After the flowers have wilted and your guests have gone, the only thing you'll have are your wedding photos. It would be a shame to have them anything less than perfect.
When you book me, we will make time to talk, to get to know each other and plan your special day together. I would love to tell your story!
