Yes, of course ANOA Wedding Photographer will take a limited number of group photos for you. We ask for a list of the groups you would like before the wedding day, and a groomsman to help us get the people together. We suggest no more than 10; this way, we get the photos taken in around 20 minutes. You can then get back to enjoying being with your friends and family, and us to our documentary approach.
Whilst most of the images we will take of you both will be as part of our telling the story of the day, we will of course take some (slightly) more formal pictures of the two of you. We usually leave these until later in the day, often after the wedding breakfast. In the summer, the light is lower and less harsh at this time, plus your guests will not miss you if we "borrow you" for 10 minutes or so. However, we don't ask you to pose elaborately, but merely just have some quiet time together whilst we take some relaxed photos. We specialise in non posed wedding photography, but of course want to make sure you have some gorgeous images of just the two of you. We just won’t make taking them a big drama!
Andy of ANOA Wedding Photographer Oxfordshire typically take around 2000 images together at a wedding. We select and edit these down to the best 400 (minimum) that represent the day in total. You will receive your wedding photography on a lovely USB wedding gift You and your guests will also be able to view photos and order prints from a secure, password protected hosting site. With regards to copyright, whilst technically we own and retain the copyright to every image we take, we give you full print and sharing rights to the images we give you. We do ask you not to significantly change them (say with Instagram filters) and share them however, as this then is no longer our work.
Its impossible to be specific on this until we edit your wedding photography. However we do typically provide at least 25% black and white images to our couples. Black and white works especially well where colour would distract from the emotion of the image; joy, tears, laugher. Black and white photography is a particular favourite of Steve's from his film and dark room days, and we would be particularly interested in hearing from couples that would like all black and white images! For a small extra fee, we can provide all your final edited images in both colour AND black and white.
We love photographing couples in love, whether bride and groom, bride and bride or groom and groom! We are happy to show you examples of any of our weddings.
CAN YOU PROVIDE A PHOTO BOOTH?
It's not really our style.....but if you do have one we will for sure take photos of your guests having fun around yours!
CAN YOU RECOMMEND A VENUE, CAKE MAKER, DRESS SHOP, ETC, ETC
We have an extensive network of wedding professionals throughout West Oxfordshire . If you would like us to recommend a supplier, just get in touch through our contact page.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO GET OUR PHOTOS TO US?
This does depend very much on the time of year. At the height of summer, when we are busiest, we may have 4 or 5 weddings we are editing at the same time. Typically we get the images uploaded to the hosting site within 4 weeks.
