Q&A


WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

I live in the beautiful county town of Taunton, Somerset but absolutely love to travel. Distance is no challenge so please contact me with your location details. If you are planning a wedding outside of the U.K. and are looking for a photographer to travel with you then this can be catered for.

HOW CAN WE CHECK AVAILABILITY?

Simply telephone or SMS text on 07786 236022 or email me at weddings@tinadownham.com with your date options and I’ll be delighted to let you know.   

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE?

My service provides me as the primary photographer with a second photographer there to capture alternative images and assist. We are skilled at blending into the background and perfectly charming & fun with your guests:)

 

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

My passion is for romantic imagery which captures the very essence of both the wedding couple and their friends and loved ones. ‘Reportage’ photography is undoubtedly at the core of the portfolio, however I am always conscious that large family gatherings are a rare event and I love to ensure  we create photos which mark a moment in personal family history for the generations to come.

DO YOU PROVIDE AN ALBUM?

An album is provided as part of my service - see the price section for full details of everything you enjoy as my clients. For the ultimate luxury we are partnered with Queensberry for those wishing to have the finest album options for their treasured images.

HOW DO YOU SUPPLY IMAGES?

My service allows for images to be supplied in any format you require. A full electronic version is available (memory stick, DVD or download). Couples will be provided with a personal, private website where you can view, select and purchase a full range of products. All guests can be given access to an online gallery where they can admire & select as required. Delivery is worldwide so friends across the globe can share in the magic of your occasion.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept all the usual forms of payment including major credit cards.

WHO OWNS THE IMAGES?

The images are yours forever. I am thrilled when clients wish to share my work on social media...there can be no greater compliment for an artist:)

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I am a Nikon professional user - their attention to technical excellence is world renown. My top end cameras shoot twin copies on separate extreme professional memory cards for total client assurance. For the informal shots we use the remarkable and discreet Fuji system which delivers stunning colour and tone. My preference for natural light is supported by portable studio flash equipment when the occasion demands.

ARE YOU INSURED?

I carry full £5 million public and employers liability insurance. Copies of certificates are available for venues if required.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS AWFUL?

Then we work even harder to ensure that your portfolio is just as stunning! With creativity and experience the rain, wind and dark skies will not prevent our clients enjoying a fine album.

CAN WE REQUEST SPECIFIC SHOTS?

Prior to the big day we jointly prepare a plan which emcompases all of the special requests you have.

WILL MY PHOTOGRAPHY BE COLOUR OR BLACK & WHITE?

The best and most memorable wedding portfolios contain a mix of romantic washed tones juxtaposed against punchy vibrant colour, partnered with classic monotone. If you require purely black & white then I interject dusky greys with film noir to strike a pleasing balance.

HOW DO WE MAKE A BOOKING?

Firstly check that I have the date free. Then typically we meet at the earliest opportunity so you can get to ask me any questions - often the venue makes a great location for this. Then you simply complete the booking form and pay the 25% deposit to secure your date.
