How will the images be delivered?

Images will be delivered via a password-protected private online gallery which you can choose to share with your friends & family if you wish. Images can be downloaded and saved to your chosen device, but we recommend using USB sticks for easy storage (and great presents!). 


Images will be available in both high-resolution  (perfect for printing), and lower-resolution (optimised & sharpened for sharing on social media). A good selection of the images will be duplicated and edited in B&W as as well.


The images will not be watermarked, and couples are free to make as many prints and copies  as you like. 

How will my film be delivered?

We will upload your wedding film to Vimeo, with password-protected access. You can download the film from there to save and make copies if you wish. 

How long before we receive our wedding photographs?

I always give couples a handful of preview images within a week of the wedding so that you have something to share and use for thank you cards. A full wedding will take up to six weeks, as each image is individually edited by hand. Often it can be much sooner than this, or very rarely it can take a little longer depending on the time of year and whether it's peak wedding season. I never like to rush through the editing process as I know the images are going to be treasured and shared for a lifetime and beyond. 

How far do you travel?

We usually cover weddings in Devon and Cornwall, but we're more than happy to travel further afield when required. Weddings that are over 100 miles away will be charged at 30 pence per additional mile. If the journey is more than 2 1/2 hours then we will require accommodation the night before the wedding to ensure that I won't run into traffic problems on the day.

How do I secure my date, and when is payment due?

We take a deposit of £100 to secure a wedding photography or videography booking. The remaining balance is then due no later than two weeks before the wedding day, but you can pay at an earlier date if it's more convenient.

Do you do engagement shoots?

We usually concentrate solely on the wedding day, but have covered several engagement shoots for wedding couples if time permits in the busy Summer wedding season. Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to find out a bit more.  

What happens if you're ill on the wedding day?

We have photographed nearly 300 weddings, and have never missed one that we've been booked for yet! Sometimes things happen which are out of our control though, which is why its great to have a team to fall back on! :)


Can I post the images on social media sites?

Of course! They are your images to show off and share as you like. We do ask that you don't add filters or make any changes other than mild cropping though. 

What are your photo books like?

They're beautiful! The printing quality from the company we use is exceptional - with deep, rich images. They photo books come with linen hardcovers, and book jackets with your chosen image on the front. The paper is pearl-coated, and they come in a range of sizes - all listed on the Kate Fierek Photography prices page

Can we make our own photo book(s)?

Yes, lots of couples enjoy the process of putting their own photo books together, and I'm happy to offer advice if needed.  High-street photo book companies offer some lovley books at low prices. Quality does differ between vendors though, so do feel free to ask which companies I recommend. 

Can I pay extra to have a super duper luxurious photo album?

We're sure that you'll be delighted with our usual wedding photo books, but if you have had your heart set on a super super luxurious wedding album then we can also provide that. We work with Queensbury - who are widely considered to be the best wedding book makers in the world. They hand make their albums with stunning detail, and prices range from £300 - £2000 per album. 

Can I make prints from the images provided?

Yes, your images won't be watermarked, and you will not be charged extra for a full free license. This means that you will be able to make as many prints, copies, USB copies, and wedding photography related products as you like. You are also free to upload the images to Facebook and other social media sites. The copyright always remains with the photographer, so the only things you're not allowed to do is alter the images (no filters), or reproduce the images for resale.

We live outside of Devon & Cornwall so won't be able to meet you in advance of the wedding. Is that a problem?

Not at all! We've photographed and filmed weddings for tens of couples who live in the London area, or even further afield. We host the pre-wedding meetup via Zoom - even with local couples - so distance isn't an issue. 

How many images will we receive?

We usually take well over 2000 images for a full day's wedding, but typically choose around 400-600 of the very best ones to hand edit and deliver. The amount really does depend on the day and your plans. Any images that don't make the cut are usually because someone is blinking, turning away from the camera etc.

Part-day coverage will usually give you between 200 and 400 images depending on how long I'm booked for. 


Do you use a flash in the church?

No. We've never met a vicar who's happy for us to use a flash, and I absolutely understand why. We use proffessional equipment that is designed to cope in low light situations, so intrusion during the ceremony itself will be at a minimum. We utilise natural light as much as possible in all of the photographs.

What type of wedding photographs do you take?

We will capture all of the big moments of your day, but we also LOVE photographing the natural happy moments between you, your friends, and your family. We are big on storytelling, and will endeavour to capture all of the elements of your day as it unfolds. 

We favour spontaneous shots, but understand that most weddings require a few formal group shots as well ... They're great to give out as presents to relatives after a wedding! These group shots are normally planned in advance to ensure smooth-running, and will generally take around 30 minutes after the ceremony depending on how many groups there are.


We also take the bride and groom away for romantic couple shots after the ceremony, and are happy to guide people with gentle positioning if required here. We find that a laid-back stroll around the venue grounds works well  - so it's nothing too high-pressured, but we can capture a nice variety of photographs. 

We are happy to guide couples as little or as much as they require, and are also more than happy to work with any creative ideas you may have yourselves if asked. 


We mainly edit in colour, but will usually edit about 20 per cent of the images in black and white as well (so you'll have them in both). Certain images jump out as having the potential to look amazing in black and white - so we use judgement as to what will look good.  

What happens after the wedding?

We know how very important wedding photographs are, so Kate spends a long time hand-editing each individual image making sure the composition, colour balance, levels, and the overall feel is fully optimised. 

We provide couples with a gallery of preview images (around fifteen 'sneak peeks') with one week of the wedding. The full-set will be delivered with six weeks. 


We offer a range of professional products such as prints & coffee table boxes, high-end photo books, and thank-you cards, but we're also more than happy to work alongside you (with no charge of course!) to advise on how to make your own products. Most couples opt for the 'digital only' package (starting from £700), because they enjoy creating their own products :)


I don't like being in front of the camera! Will this be a problem?

Not at all. We understand that a lot people are not comfortable in front of the lens. We will strive to make you feel at ease, and we will work out a strategy together in advance of your wedding day. We have a very unobtrusive style of capturing photographs and videography, and if you're worried about posed scenes we can plan to concentrate on the more natural shots if preferred.


It may make you feel better to know that LOADS of brides and grooms have expressed a concern about being in front of the camera in the past, but they all been absolutely fine on the big day itself. There's so much going on, and it's such a whirlwind of joy, that photographs and film are usually the last thing on  couples' minds. You won't even know we're there most of the time :)




Couples are also absolutely more than welcome to get in touch with any questions they may have before the big day. There is no such thing as a silly question, and no limit to the amount of emails you can send us! Also feel free to ask questions that aren't photography related if you need help. I.e. If you're looking for a band then feel free to ask if we know of anyone. We have a host of wedding-related contacts, and am well placed to research on your behalf.
