Beach Wedding Photography

Your Questions Answered...

Will we get every photo that you take during the day/session?

You will get every edited image from your event / session. This is not every image that’s taken. I often take several shots in order to get one or two deliverable images for a pose or setting. The best will be selected and any duplicates will be left to one side.
Your quoted price includes my time and expertise at selecting, processing and editing the images. We’ll discuss the project beforehand and you’ll have an idea of how many images to expect depending on your requirements and time frame.
The reason you don’t get every single image taken is because of the time involved to process each one. All images are shot in RAW format and each one is custom processed to bring out the best possible results.

What format are the images in?

All images are shot in RAW. This offers a higher degree of manipulation during processing to help bring out the best from each photo. The final images I deliver to you will be high resolution JPEG.
You won’t be given the RAW images as they’re not a true representation of the final images, and the processing is a large part of adding my own style to the photos.

What equipment do you use?

A full frame Nikon DSLR with 2 memory card slots for extra security in case a card malfunctions.
For weddings i’ll be carrying 2 Nikons so no time is lost changing lenses and i’ll be better prepared to catch those moments that need a quick response.
One camera is usually equipped with a 24-70mm (f/2.8) which is a great versatile professional lens which is a pleasure to work with. The second camera will have a 70-200mm (f/2.8) which is invaluable for candid close up shots and moments when a longer zoom is necessary.
In the bag there’ll always be a back up camera just in case, and a couple of more specific lenses if needed.

Do you shoot in Black and White?

I’ll be shooting in RAW. As it’s digital photography any of the images can be processed as black and white. Some photos are shown at their best in black and white rather than colour, so at my discretion you’ll receive extra copies of some images.
Please note that this is a process that is individual to all photos rather than a quick click. For this reason you won’t receive black and white copies of every single image - just the ones which merit it. Any additional images can always be supplied if requested.

Do you supply the RAW files?

I don’t provide the RAW files. But of course if you’d like an image editing in a specific style or retouched in a particular way then please let me know and i’ll be happy to discuss it with you.

What if a child is poorly for a portrait shoot, or it's going to rain for an outdoor shoot? 

Please contact me as early as possible to reschedule. Kids do get ill - it happens and unfortunately photoshop doesn’t have a feature to take away that “I feel sick” look on a child’s face. Adults can often put on a brave face and complete the session when not feeling at their best but I wouldn’t expect it of a child.

Fortunately in Spain we’re in a climate where it doesn’t rain too often so bad weather isn’t too much of an issue. I try to be as flexible as possible, particularly in winter, and can always change the day a few days in advance if the forecast doesn’t look good. Or move a shoot from the morning to the afternoon.
And if it’s not clear blue sky and we have the odd cloud or moments when it’s overcast then it can actually improve the photos - it’s like having the biggest natural filter possible to remove the problem of harsh shadows on your portrait shoot. A few clouds in the sky can really enhance a final image.
If it’s a ski shoot in the French Alps then the weather is crucial, and it’s always a case of keeping an eye on the forecast.

If the weather is ever going to be detrimental to the results of a photoshoot then i’d never expect to carry on regardless.

The legal side….

When is payment due?

Wedding reservations and corporate events can be secured with a 30% deposit. The remainder can be paid in advance or on the day. For portrait sessions payment is due at the time of booking.

Payments can be via bank transfer, PayPal or cash.

Can we post the images in the internet, Facebook etc?

Yes, please do. And if you tag tonywilkinsonphotography i’d be grateful.

Who owns the images after the event?

Every photographer owns the photos that are taken by him/her. The print release gives the client(s) permission to use and print the photos for personal use. Obviously every photo supplied to you has full print release.
I will never publish an image for commercial benefit unless previously agreed with you the client. Some images may be used on my own website or promotional material to display examples of my work for other clients.

We had the most incredible day and now we get to relive it with these beautiful photos.

I can not thank you enough :-)

Cosmetics…

I have a pimple / my baby scratched their face / I have a bruise on my arm… should I reschedule our portrait session?

Minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches on a face can happen. These can easily be taken care of during post processing and editing of the photos so the session will not have to be rescheduled.

However for larger items like black eyes the session should be rescheduled.

Since this may be the first time we shoot please mention visible moles or birthmarks that should be removed, especially on babies and little children where it can be hard to distinguish.

Should i get a haircut or change the style right before a portrait session? 

No. For men and boys the best time to get a haircut is a week or two before the photo session. Women and girls should not try out a new hairstyle for photos unless they are confident they’ll be happy with the results.
