Wedding Photography


All your wedding photography questions answered by Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer Amber Marie Photography.

Do we need two wedding photographers?

Having two professional wedding photographers capture your day ensures not a moment or angle is missed and that your wedding photography tells a complete story of the day from both perspectives. It also means we can capture parts of the day that wouldn’t be possible as a solo shooter, whilst allowing  us to work as unobtrusively as possible, so you can forget we’re there. This is especially useful if you’d like both side of the morning preparations covered. A second photographer can be arranged for £250. I work with a close community of experienced photographers who also run their own wedding photography businesses.

How far do you travel?

No wedding is too near or far. We’re based in The Cotswolds in Gloucestershire, with so many beautiful wedding venus on our doorstep. But we’ve traveled all over the UK and to destination weddings in the mountains of Spain. Our packages include travel and accommodation anywhere in mainland UK. If you’re planning a destination wedding, please get in touch for a tailor made quote.

How long do you stay for?

Our full day eco friendly wedding photography packages don’t come with a set time limit. We concentrate on telling the full story of your day from getting ready until dad dancing. Typically we find that capturing a couple of hours of getting ready up until an hour after the first dance tells the full story.

Are you insured?

Yes! We’re fully covered with both public liability and public indemnity insurance. Your venue may need to know this.

What Equipment do you use?

I always shoot a wedding with two Canon 5D camera bodies at all times. So if there is a technical glitch, I have another to take it’s place without missing a beat. Each of those cameras uses a dual memory card slot, so every single photo taken is backed up in camera.

Do you have back up equipment?

Yes, yes and more yes!

Do you do albums?

Floppy disks, DVD’s, USB’s with all come and go but a professional wedding album has stood the test of time and is still the best way to present your favourite images. Our albums have the highest eco credentials possible and are a bespoke design and hand made right here is West Yorkshire by a team of professional printers and book binders. Albums are available at a discounted price as a bolt on or can be ordered anytime after the big day. Request our latest brochure for more details.

Should we have a pre wedding/engagement shoot?

Engagement shoots are a great chance for us to get creative before the day as well as chance to get to know each other. Pre wedding shoots are fun, relaxed and natural and give you some beautiful photographs that make great save the dates of invitations, you can see some examples of engagement shoots on my blog.

How long until our images are ready?

A lot of time is spent editing and curating your wedding photographs. Each image is individually edited in my signature style. The week following your wedding you’ll receive lots of lovely sneak peek images. Your full gallery will be ready in 4 – 6 weeks depending on the time of year.

How do we book you to capture our day?

Great! First thing first is to check if we’re available on your date.

We then meet up for a coffee or have a chat on the phone to discuss your plans for the day. From there you just need to complete your booking forms and return it with your deposit of £400. The remaining balance is paid 8 weeks before your wedding day.
