Wedding FAQ's

Booking Questions

Why should I choose Amoré Moments?

We believe that we stand out for two reasons. First, the quality of our work. We’ll just leave it at that and invite you to look at the galleries throughout our website so you can make an assessment for yourself.

Second, is our full service photography experience. We go above and beyond throughout our relationship together to ensure that you receive beautiful products of your images to last generations. We are on hand for any questions and to offer our professional guidance at all times.

How far in advance do I need to book?

We advise booking your photography as soon as possible. Generally, we suggest that you try to book all the wedding bookings for vendors that can only provide one service per day as priority, e.g. venue, catering, photographer, entertainment etc.

That being said we do occasionally have last minute availability so it’s always worth contacting us to see if your date is available. If we don’t, we are always happy to suggest other amazing photographers that may be available.

Do you have insurance?

We are fully insured and our policy documents are available on demand.

If your venue requires a copy of these insurance documents, please let us know prior to booking.

How do I book you for my wedding?

We would love to capture your precious moments and memories. To book with us, simply drop us an email or fill in our contact form and we’ll give you a call to book your free no-obligation consultation.

This in-person consultation will be in the comfort of your own home. You will be able to discuss the details of your wedding day, get to know us a bit better and ask any questions you may have.

Following your consultation, if you decide to go with us, you will sign your wedding contract and pay your booking fee.

And then we are set!

How much is the booking fee and what are the payment terms?

Our Booking Fee is £300 (non-refundable), these costs are to cover our administration costs and to hold your wedding date.

We cannot hold any date without a booking fee AND a signed contract under any circumstances.

Every wedding collection has the same booking fee to allow you to upgrade your wedding package before the day if you wish to do so.

The remaining balance can be paid at any time up to 6 weeks before the wedding.

Do I have to use the wedding time coverage consecutively?

Yes. Unless otherwise arranged, discussed and agreed in writing with us.

How long have you been photographing weddings?

We tend to do 15 to 20 weddings per year to ensure that we can provide a fully supportive photography service from beginning to end. Our lead photographer has been a professional photographer for about 9+ years and has been capturing weddings for 6+ years now, shooting over 100 weddings in total.

Before the Wedding

What happens after I book my wedding?

Sit back and relax in anticipation of your wedding.

We will look forward to arranging your engagement session for the time of year that suits the type of images you would like. So if you want some cosy style images (think coats, scarves, cuddles etc) – we would arrange a date for autumn or winter. Or a smart casual style image would suit spring or summer.

We’ll plan to meet up for your portrait planning consultation roughly 2-6 weeks before your wedding date. We leave it until then to ensure we get all the up to date information, as a lot of things can change in the months leading up to the wedding.

That being said, we are available throughout your wedding planning to assist with any questions you may have, to talk about the logistics of the day or even just a general chat.

What is an Engagement Session? Is it included?

An Engagement session is included as a complimentary gift in our Elegance Collection.

It is a photo session of the two of you at a location of your choice. It is a great way for you to get used to being in front of the camera while we capture beautiful images of your love for one another.

An engagement session includes 10 Digital Images (Web Optimised Format) which are perfect for save the dates or for use with the purchase of one of our signature guest frames.

If you have chosen one of our other collections, you can purchase an engagement session as an add-on to your wedding.

Where can we get our Engagement images taken?

We will guide you on location choices during the planning stages to ensure that we are creating images that suit your personality as a couple and carefully match the style of image you are dreaming of to the best location.

We have worked in various locations and each one offers it’s own little spot of character and charm.

If you are looking for relaxed engagement images, locations such as Hartsholme Park, Stapleford Woods, Lincoln Cathedral or the Lincoln Arboretum are ideal.

What happens at the Portrait Planning Consultation?

We’ll plan to meet up for your design & planning consultation roughly 2-6 weeks before your wedding date. We leave it until then to ensure we get all the up to date information, as a lot of things can change in the months leading up to the wedding.

It can be a nice idea to have this final consultation at the wedding venue. It gives you an opportunity to discuss where you would like your group images to be taken and really nail down the logistics of the day.

In this consultation will discuss:

  • Discuss and plot the timeline for the day
  • Ask questions to help us plan your coverage
  • Discuss the group images
  • And, generally, have a great little chat.

The Big Day

What happens if you are ill or worse?

This is a very good question. Bare in mind, we take our roles very seriously and to date, we have never been unable to attend a wedding. This is worst case scenario stuff.

As well-respected members of the wedding photography community, we have connections with lots of professional photographers within Lincolnshire. In the event of severe illness (or other such emergencies) we would aim to substitute with a photographer of an equal quality.

Any additional payments for a replacement photographer would be our responsibility.  Not yours.

After your Wedding

How long will it take to receive our wedding images?

We know how eager you will be to receive your wedding images (we remember from ours).

That is why we post a sneak peek of 3-5 images to ease the wait. These will also be available in an online gallery to allow you to use them for thank you cards etc.

After your wedding date, we lovingly edit your images. This process can take 4 to 6 weeks as we take care and consideration when editing knowing that they will be treasured images.

We will then meet for your Reveal & Ordering Session.

What happens during my Reveal & Ordering Session?

About 4 to 6 weeks after your wedding we will come over and sit down and show you a short slideshow of your images. This slideshow is purely focused on you seeing your whole gallery of lovely images for the first time. This is usually the time where we get some ohh’s, ahhh’s and a few tears.

From here, the fun begins. We will once again go over your gorgeous gallery so we can start to get an idea of how you would like your images displayed. We bring samples of the various products that we offer, so you can see what you’re buying.

We also have some wonderful technology that can allow you to see what the wall art will look like in your own home. It can help you to really visualise your beautiful images within your home.

This is your chance to pick your favourite images, and place your order!

I love your work! What is the best way to recommend you to a friend?

Oh, my, thank you! You can share our website, or let them know why you love my work!

Can my family and friends order products?

Absolutely, they are welcome to schedule a Reveal & Ordering Session to purchase any products they would like. We find this is a great way for us to guide clients on the perfect product for their space.

We have experience in designing and sourcing only the very best heirloom products. We also use design software where we can show you what wall displays will look like in your own home.

Can I order my images at a later date?

We store your images in multiple locations for 8 weeks after your reveal & ordering session. During this time, you can safely order additional products of your images.

After this time, we are unable to guarantee that they will be available for further purchases as they are then only stored in one location.

That being said, you can always get in contact with us to see if we still hold the images.

Purchasing Products

What types of products do you offer? What do they cost?

We firmly believe that prints are more valuable than the digitals. They will be keepsakes for generations.

Albums are our favourite heirlooms. Our albums are heirloom quality printed on archival paper to ensure they last generations.

You may also choose from beautiful matted gift prints, luxury framed prints, modern wall art, keepsake boxes, digital images and perfect little add on products for family and friends. You can see images of our gorgeous products on our Heirloom Product page.

DO YOU OFFER Product PAYMENT PLANS?

We most certainly do!

We understand what it’s like to want something, especially something as precious as your captured family memories. We also understand that it is difficult to drop large amounts of money all at once.

We, therefore, offer payment plans to ensure that you can purchase all the items you’ve fallen in love with. We ask for 50% of the whole sale price as a deposit for your items which is due at the reveal & ordering session. We can then customise a payment plan for the remainder which can be paid in instalments (up to 3 months) that works best for you.

Products will then delivered shortly after the full balance has been paid.

WHY DO YOU SELL PRINTS? COULDN'T I JUST GET DIGITAL IMAGES AND MAKE MY OWN COPIES AT A LOCAL PRINT SHOP FOR MUCH CHEAPER?

When ordering prints, you aren’t just paying for the paper and what it costs us to order it, you’re paying for the artwork on the paper.

We spend hours before each wedding getting to know our clients and putting together a shot list, to ensure that your wedding images best reflects the story we are capturing. Because of this, each image is a priceless moment catered to YOU, that deserves to be displayed in the best way possible.

While you could order digital images, we highly encourage ordering prints through us and our professional lab. We have sourced labs with only the best quality products that are truly exquisite and last generations. It’s less work for you, and it guarantees that your images will look their absolute best and no quality will be lost (which happens in many cases at local print shops). Plus, many of the packages we offer include digital images (printable up to 8″ x 12″) anyways, so why not get the best of both worlds if you can?
