Frequently asked questions
Do you travel?
Whilst I predominantly cover Manchester & Liverpool city centres, I also cover the Greater Manchester area, Ribble Vally & Lancashire, Lake District, Cheshire, and the Wirral.
How do we book you for our wedding?
First, check if I’m available! I’m more than happy to meet couples for a consultation so I can find out more about your plans for your day, and I can show you some of my gorgeous wedding albums. To book me, it’s just a case of completing the e-contract; pay the booking fee & it’s all done. Date secured. (Please note, I don’t hold dates without a deposit). The remaining balance is due one month before the wedding. The booking fee amount varies depending which collection you choose.
How do we pay?
My preference is electronic payment, so bank transfers or credit/debit cards though PayPal are great. Please note, I don’t accept cash payments. Cheques can be made payable to ‘Karen Julia Photography’.
How many photos do we get?
There’s no limit, but as a rough guide approx 500 photos for a full day coverage wedding (depending on guest numbers, the duration of coverage & structure of your day)
Approx 30 ish for an engagement shoot. (These are supplied electronically, you can download these directly from the www.viewourpictures.com website.
When do we get our photos?
You’re wedding pictures will be online within 6 weeks of your wedding, with the USB drive delivered alongside your soft cover photo book. Time for this can vary depending on when you choose your cover photos & whether it’s peak season.
What's the timescale for albums?
Timescale for both design and production varies depending on the time of year. Orders taken during my busy Summer months will take longer than orders over the Winter months. When I put a design together, this will be uploaded so it can be either approved, or alterations requested. The duration of this process varies depending on number of changes etc.
Are you insured?
Yep, my gear is fully insured and in addition I also have public liability and indemnity insurance. If you need proof of insurance let me know.
What's digital editing?
Each of your photos is individually digitally edited and enhanced in my style. Digital editing includes cropping, straightening, colour correction, adjusting tone and contrast, adding vignettes where applicable and on key photos like portraits it also includes retouching work in the form of skin smoothing and removal of temporary skin imperfections.
If you’d like additional retouching services to remove tattoos, blemishes or objects from a photo, this is available for an additional charge. As all my couples are supplied with the high resolution JPEGs, you’re more than welcome to shop around for any additional retouching that you require. If you’d like me to arrange this for you, please advise me of photo numbers so that I can provide you with a quote. I sub contract the more specialist retouching work, so the timescale for this is usually around 2-3 weeks.
What do you do about food on the wedding day?
Don’t worry about providing a meal for me. 🙂 I use the time during the wedding breakfast to back up the pictures, so will eat during that time. If it’s a venue where I can access my car at that time, I bring a packed lunch. If not, I’ll make alternative arrangements directly with the venue.
Julia’s my surname… (it does occasionally confuse people), so whilst I do sometimes work with an assistant or other wedding photographers, there’s just the one of me! 🙂
