How many photos will we get from our wedding day?
I don't put a limit on the number of photos I deliver. Having trained back in the days of film, I was taught to think about each and every photo I was going to take before clicking the shutter. Therefor you may find that you get more quality than quantity with my style of shooting. Believe me, that's a good thing!
I've found another photographer who is cheaper. Do you offer discounts?
There are many photographers out there who will be happy to photograph weddings. The results will vary enormously. I will ask that you do your research into their qualifications, experience and most importantly have a look through galleries of full weddings that they have shot recently. Make sure you are happy with the quality of work and that their style is what you are after.
Do you use a second photographer?
Some photographers like to always work in pairs. I prefer to work alone, if possible. That way I know that the work that I will be submitting at the end will all be my own and that it will all be from my own creative mind. However, having said that, there will be a few occasions where the job will require a 2nd shooter, due to larger number of guests, or events taking place in different locations simultaneously. This is why I have trusted associate photographers that I use and can call on them when needed. We can discuss if you really need a 2nd shooter before booking one.
How far in advance do we need to book you?
I am fortunate enough to be fully booked, usually, at least a year in advance. Obviously weekends in the summer and holiday periods go first. So my best advice that as soon as you have your date decided, and most likely venue booked, contact your preferred photographer straight away.
How can we look our best in our wedding photos?
The most important thing is to be relaxed. This is why I don't generally put couples into stiff and awkward poses. I will give you as much direction as I can during an engagement shoot or the couples shoot, but then allow you to do whatever feels natural to you. This is why I offer a complimentary engagement shoot with my full day packages, so that you can get to feel much more at ease with me and also being in front of the camera. It works miracles!
Thank you so much for photographing our wedding. We had the most magical day and your role in capturing that was incredible. We loved seeing the photos in the online gallery and then to receive the photos on the memory stick in the beautiful package was wonderful. You captured the mood, atmosphere and overwhelming sense of love we remember of our day. You have provided a journey of our day, from the emotions of getting ready, to the ceremony and to the super relaxed afternoon in the sunshine. We are so glad we asked you to photograph our special day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you, you were a pleasure to have there on our day.
Mamad was the most fantastic photographer and captured our day perfectly! Such an amazing addition to the day and images to treasure for the rest of our lives! As two people who don't really like being photographed, Mamad made us feel so comfortable and most importantly relaxed! Thank you just isn't a big enough word! If you're going to make sure you get one thing for your wedding make it Twig&Vine!
"We really cannot speak highly enough of Mamad and his photography. We weren’t going to have an official photographer at all for our wedding since neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera. However, when we stumbled across the twig and vine website and saw his more natural approach to wedding photography, we just knew we had to meet the person behind the camera. Within moments of first meeting Mamad we were not only stunned by his beautiful photos, but also warmed by what a thoroughly lovely person he is! Mamad understood exactly how we wanted the day captured and completely empathised with our reluctance to pose for photos we were extremely thankful that Mamad offered to do a engagement shoot, it really did make us feel more comfortable. On the day Mamad was an absolute pleasure to have around. The guests all loved him and he managed to beautifully capture the essence of the day without us even noticing the shots being taken. Needless to say, we would highly recommend Twig and Vine photography to anyone wishing to have their special day captured on camera. Mamad has truly given us some beautiful photographs to remember our perfect day forever."
You were an absolutely incredible at our wedding. You managed to take photos from early in the morning all the way until the dancing at night without anyone really noticing you at all. The photos you took are out of this world and we will cherish them for ever.
Mamad’s photos of our wedding are absolutely stunning, but importantly he fitted in with our day absolutely seamlessly, blending in and capturing moments that we just didn’t notice at the time. We were so pleased with the final photos and would unreservedly recommend Mamad to any couple looking for a fantastic photographer.
