Olivia J Photography

What is your photography style?

I like to focus on a more candid and natural style photography which is perfect for those out there who are a bit camera shy. I will always capture those classic family line up portraits (if you want them!) plus gorgeous couples shots, but beyond that I will be wandering about getting all of the moments you would normally miss. I won't orchestrate or coordinate fake moments for the camera, it's all about the real stuff!

How long will you stay on the day?

My full day package is for up to 10 hours of coverage. Full day coverage usually starts a couple of hours before the ceremony for bride and/or groom prep, and finishes just after the first dance. For any additional hours coverage beyond the standard 10 hours, a £100 charge will be applied per hour.

How long will it take for us to receive our images after the wedding?

Approximately 8-10 weeks after the wedding (can be subject to change), your full private online gallery will be ready and delivered to you via email. You will be able to share your gallery with friends and family, create favourites lists, mark certain images as private and more. A copy of these high resolution images will also be sent to your address on a USB. Your online gallery will be available for 12 months, so do be sure to back up your gallery to multiple locations before the expiry date.

How many images will we receive?

I will always edit as many as possible after carefully culling the 1000s of photos I takeout through the day. For a full day wedding you can expect a minimum of 500 edited images, but usually more, and for a half day a minimum of 300.

How far will you travel for a wedding?

I am based between my current home in Manchester and my childhood home in the Lake District, and cover these North West areas for no extra charge. I offer coverage nationwide and have shot weddings across Scotland, Wales and England so far, and am more than willing to travel abroad for your wedding! Any bookings outside of the North West of England, be it in the UK or a destination wedding, require the coverage of expenses (travel, accommodation, visas if necessary etc) which will be discussed on a case by case basis.

Do we pay you before or after the wedding?

All bookings require a £150 deposit upon confirmation. This is non-refundable and is included in your total fee. The remaining balance must be paid no later than 30 days before the wedding. Payment plans can be arranged upon discussion.

Do you have insurance?

Yes! All of my equipment is insured and I have full Public Liablity and Professional Indemnity Insurance. If your venue require my insurance documents please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to provide them.
